The Ordinary Peeling Solution!
This is fun to put on, it does have a weird smell I feel like it's definitely helped minimize the appearance of my pores and smooth out my skin! I've used it about 4 or 5 times and I will continue using to see how it goes This product is only to be used 1 or 2 times per week, for 10 mins or less and rinse off!

Curology is Amazing🥰
Curology - Curology formula I had very bad scars and lots of acne. I started using Curology in March 2019 and I started seeing results pretty quick, my face was totally clear about 7 months later. I still continue to use it and I couldn't be happier. I was always so insecure and couldn't leave my house without foundation to hide all my acne, now I don't need it and I'm comfortable without it 😊 I totally recommend people try this out for a few months see if it helps!
PORE MINIMIZING SERUM
Lactic acid is an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) and helps exfoliate the uppermost layers of the skin. It results in smooth, refreshed and refined skin, which ultimately leads to smaller pore size. The Ordinary’s Lactic Acid is the first acid serum I’ve ever tried and I still consider it one of the best ones out there. It’s also super affordable and you absolutely can’t beat the price ($7)!!! Prior to introducing this product to my routine, I remember having a lot of dry, rough patches. But after a few uses it immediately made my skin so much smoother, more supple and it overall helped reduce breakouts! I’m assuming it’s because it was removing my dead skin cells, which prevented them from clogging my pores and causing break outs. I experienced tingling when I first used it but my skin has since adjusted and it’s been completely fine. I have also been able to use it everyday (I started with every other day). It has a very thin texture, almost water-like, but I never had any trouble with application and I always use my fingers. Overall, I really like this serum! If you’re new to skincare and have been interested in trying out an exfoliating acid, then I highly recommend checking this product out! It’s also available in 5% which is more gentle and for perfect newbies (nobody wants to burn their faces off 🤣). The Ordinary - Lactic Acid 10% + HA

Empties: Good Molecules Niacinamide Serum
This was the last product I emptied in 2019 and I've gotta say I was pretty devastated to run out of this serum. I tried to baby it as much as I could but it had to reach an end 😭💔 🔆MY SKIN, PRODUCT FUNCTION & TEXTURE🔆 So this serum came into my life at the PERFECT time. I was using the DE Lala Retrowhip and it WRECKED my skin 😠. My skin was broken out all over in painful zits, it was insanely greasy and my pores were HUGE. My skin is usually somewhere between being pretty normal to slightly dry but never oily. I was able to clear up the breakouts after eliminating the Retrowhip from my skincare routine but I was left with red marks all over my face from the acne, large pores, really sensitive skin and some crazy oil production 😭! I knew niacinamide is supposed to help with skin brightening and pore size so I searched online for some niacinamide products and came across this serum. This water-based serum has a smooth, slippery texture that absorbed into my skin really well and didn't leave a film or any kind of tacky finish on my skin. It works super well under makeup too 😍! 💭 FINAL THOUGHTS 💭 I absolutely LOVE this serum and I can't wait to repurchase another bottle this year 💛💛! I noticed a HUGE difference in my skin within just one week of using it. I noticed my pores going back to their regular size and my oil production was finally getting back to normal. Within a month my skin looked like nothing ever happened ✨. No trace of scarring, no greasy skin, no giant pores and I owe it all to this bad boy 🙏🏽. At only $6 an ounce it's worth a shot! I'd recommend this serum to anybody! 💛💛💛 GOOD MOLECULES - Niacinamide Serum

Show those pores the door, hunny
As I’ve gotten older, I’ve been noticing my pores becoming larger and more noticeable. These days, I am always in the market to find something that will remedy this. I decided to try the bareMinerals Poreless Clay Cleanser. Here are the claims: “Poreless Clay Cleanser from bareMinerals is a creamy clay cleanser that helps clear pores and reduce excess oil for healthy-looking skin. Rich in exfoliating superfruit acids and nutrient-packed prebiotics, this skin-refining daily cleanser gently deep cleans and purifies to keep pores clear. The sulfate-free formula also reduces excess oil for a fresh, balanced and healthy glow. Benefits: * Dermatologist-tested * Non-comedogenic” Here’s the tea ☕️ : I’ve been testing this product on and off for about 3 weeks. I’ve been trading with another cleanser that is mentioned in my previous posts. When I have used this cleanser I notice that my pores do appear smaller after a week/week and a half of consistent use. I like that this product is gentle on my sensitive, normal-dry skin. The texture is very cream-like and when using it in the shower, I noticed that the lather is gentle and not extremely foamy. I do recommend this product because, in my opinion, it has worked wonders for my large pores! For a 4 fl oz bottle of this cleanser, it is $22.00. I found mine at Tjmaxx for $5.99. Either way, I would pay full price for this. The Poreless Clay Cleanser can be found at Ulta, BareMinerals.com, Tjmaxx, etc. Overall, this product has my stamp of approval and a 5/5 star rating from me. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ bareMinerals - Poreless Clay Cleanser

A pore minimizing toner!
The Good Molecules Niacinimide Toner is an alcohol free toner that helps to reduce the appearance of large pores, brighten and even out the complexion. While using a blend of some amazing ingredients, like vitamin B3, naturally derived arbutin, and vitamin C, this toner does exactly as it claims! This is a toner; so it should be used directly after cleansing, and applied with a cotton round and gently swipe it on the face. The texture is just a bit thicker than water, but really just sinks into the skin like nothing, it doesn’t leave any sticky residue behind, and it doesn’t have any fragrance, which is great for my sensitive skin. This toner was gifted to me from the brand, before receiving this I never had any interest in using a toner, and often thought that they would dry out and irritate my skin. I am so happy that I gave this one a try, I have noticed my pores becoming less and less noticeable as I continue using this, which has been for about 3 months now, my skin is brighter but I am not sure if it is from this product alone as I do use other brightening products, as well. My skin hasn’t dried out from this, thanks to the alcohol free formula. At the price of $14, I would recommend this product to others, to anyone really looking to shrink their pore size and need a gentler toner alternative. The price, effort and the extra step is definitely worth it in my opinion. I am giving this product a 5/5, because I love that it has been shrinking my pores and not irritating my skin!
