Most Helpful Positive Review A must have!
I'm 50 years old with large pores being one of my biggest issues, and am floored at the number of comments I've received since starting to use this product about a month ago about how 'young' I look! The appearance of my skin has improved dramatically -- and I've only been using it ONCE a day (instead of twice, as directed). Worth every penny!
This will definitely be a permanent part of my daily regimen.
Most Helpful Critical Review The name should be re-assessed
This is certainly a mixed review, for me. The Precision Lifting and Pore-Tightening Concentrate is an interesting serum; I noticed one of the two titular effects that I was expecting. I found the product to be effective at tightening and lifting my skin, which is nice, but I am only 25 and don't find much need for tightening my skin. The reason that I purchased this product was to take advantage of the pore tightening and reducing effects. I did not ever really experience this effect, sadly. So while I would recommend this product to someone hoping to lift and tighten their skin, I would not steer them here if they were looking for a serum to reduce their pores.

This works really well, worth money I paid for...strongly recommend it
It didn't tighten my pores
Arden from San Diego, CA
Pro: the texture is great. The scent is good not too overpowering. It is not oily at all. I can feel my skin getting slightly lifted.
Cons: I've been using it for over a month now. My skin started to break out and didn't see my pores getting tighter or smaller, which was the main reason I got this product.
Improvement: The pump gets clogged the next day and considering how much you pay for it, it felt like I was wasting a lot of my precious serum.
Was Looking Forward To Product
Natalie the Tryin'-New-Things from Minneapolis, MN
I purchased this with another Kiehl's product and was disappointed in both. The product, when applied following the directions, burned my skin. Maybe my skin is too sensitive? Dry? Not sure, but have returned the product. If you have oily skin vs. dry skin, this product may work better for you.
Good serum, just not for pore tightening
KateK from New York
Purchased in January, and applied am & pm daily since (4 months now) nearly finished w/ my bottle and have yet to see any improvement in pore size. I do exfoliate regularly and for the last 8 weeks haven't even worn makeup due to working from home.
I like the gel format and scent, it absorbs quickly and is not oily. However the pump is poor quality resulting in a bit of the serum drying in the pump and creates a small clog. It gets expunged the next day in the form of a small hard dry lump. Given the pricing, it seems wasteful to loose that dry bit of serum every day when there are plenty of other pumps on the market that do not do that.
Placebo effect or not, it works!
Laurie from New York
I used this back in 2017 and I stopped because I got cystic acne (not from this product, from hormones) and my dermatologist had to start my skincare routine from scratch. Now that I'm all healed, I'm left with these gigantic pores on my cheeks and nose. This product helps so much with pore reduction which also helps prevent blackheads. I use it 2-3 times a week and on the days I'm not using my acne medicine because I don't recommend mixing serums with acne treatments.
GAgolfnut from Georgia, USA
Love the product on my second bottle. FYI don?t throw the bottle out when the pump Stops working. Turn the bottle on it?s side, take the top off & use the rest by tapping in your hand. My skin has never looked better
I will buy this again.
diamondgirl from Sheboygan, WI
This product has recently become available here, but I was used to large sizes. The girls were amazingly helpful and pleasant. They looked up what I wanted and ordered it for me.
Just so so
sqdg from Newark, DE, USA
It slightly firms skin, but does nothing to reduce the pore size.
don't see any diference
bluesoul from New York, NY, USA
I've read a lot of good things about this brand and I was really excited to try this. I've been using this product for over four months with the amazonian clay mask, hoping that this will get rid of my pores problem and honestly my pores look completely the same, for the high price of this i was really expecting a lot from this brand and now i am very disappointed. Don't waste your money.
in the other hand the cannabis oil is great.
Works like a charm
Mary from California
I love it. It actually helped reduce the lines around the lines. After a month, I saw a difference. One of my favorite products.
Gracie373 from undisclosed
Works wells to smooth my skin, feels tighter, and I notice pores look smaller. It makes my foundation look a lot smoother, too. It's one of those nice products that I treat myself to once in a while, but I could live without it. It doesn't have to be a part of my daily beauty routine, but it's a nice perk. That said, I don't think it's worth what you pay for it.
Beautiful and effective product
AngCat from Wisconsin
I recently purchased this product and I am stunned by the quick results I received. I am 27, but I do have lines on my neck that have completely disappeared after a very short time using this product. It makes my skin feel fresh, bouncy, and glowy. It makes me feel more confident wearing less makeup. I don't have an issue with pores, so I can't speak to that claim. A little bit goes a long way, so I recommend the tiny tube for anyone who wants to give this a go. A lovely addition to my nighttime routine, extremely impressive.

I have a combination skin and big pore on my cheeks. this products did nothing for me and I am using it for a month nothin is changed. It was literally a waste of money, specially for how much money you pay for this.
Didn't work for my pores
Mandy17 from Brooklyn, NY
In the last year or so, my pores have gone from invisible to very noticeable. When I saw this product, I was hoping it would be the magical solution I was looking for. It feels great and smells great, but unfortunately, it did nothing for my pores. After I finished the bottle, I had decided to switch to a lactic acid/retinol routine, which immediately worked wonders for my pores. I adore Kiehl's products, but this one just didn't work for me!
averygreenleaf from Portland, OR, USA
I love this product! It smells wonderful, and feels great. It tightens and lifts my skin, while giving it a lovely glow. My neck was beginning to sag; this product has tightened up my neck skin, it looks years younger.
Doesn't see any improvement
Star9 from Houston
I had purchased the product last year and been using it for a period of time. I was looking forward and hope that the product will help me to minimize my pore. unfortunately, I can't see any difference after using the product.

I think I finally found a pore minimizer. It feels good on my dry skin, rubs on easily
It doesn't work
SC5121 from San Francisco, CA
I bought this based on the reviews and it simply doesn't work. I followed the directions and I've been using it diligently for the last 2 months and I'm simply not seeing any different, not even the tiniest bit. I was skeptical to begin with but after reading so many reviews of people seeing reduction in pore sizes, I figured, why not? Well, I should've stuck to my gut feeling because it just doesn't work. Don't waste your time or money. I'm going to keep using my Smashbox primer.
IT REALLY WORKS!
AMELIA4 from New York, NY
My holy grail product!!! I recently was very impressed with a sample of the skin rescuer during a trip to the airport, so I tried a sample of this and OMG it's a miracle lol. I had NO expectatins for this because I've literally tried everything to reduce my pore size, even aesthetic lasers, and nothing I've tried works. I have the world's largest pores! I noticed a dramatic difference after 2 days. The downside is I have to use it consistently or it will return back to the normal size. But it's still better than anything else out there! It's a miracle. It also makes makeup application WAY smoother. Please NEVER stop making this Kiehls! THANK YOU- LIFE CHANGING. TRY IT!!
LOVE THIS PRODUCT
Jillien from undisclosed
This product has helped reduce the size of my pores. My pores aren't as visible as others but it was still an issue for me. I have oily skin and I thought I was just going to live with huge pores my whole life. After using it for a couple of times I seen a huge difference in my pore size. My friends and boyfriend has noticed and I couldn't be any happier.
Think Soft Focus
bignon from undisclosed
After about a month using sample packets and the purchased product, I truthfully cannot attest to the serum's ability to reduce my pore size. However, I can say that my skin looks much better. My skin looks hydrated and healthy. I think my pores are the same size as before. I just don't notice them as much since I am busy admiring my softly glowing skin.
I would recommend this product as a part of a general skin care routine but not necessarily for pore-tightening.
Precious pore tighten
Wina from Dallas, Texas
I got this sample product. I has bid pores around my nose and chin
After my sample gone ( I used around q month) now I purchase this product. My skin is smooth and brighter. My co worker said I look younger. I Love this product
Not for me..
nford from Portland, OR
I can't say this has helped with my pore size what so ever, but I do notice a slight lifting effect from this.
The geranium scent is beautiful and I think that is really the only reason I use this serum. I personally probably wont be buying this again as I feel there is better options, but it's a decent choice.
Mona Lisa Has nothing on me!
TheKiehlsRaven from Dallas, Texas
I love the Kiehl's. When I was a young man and would visit the store, Jamie and Klaus would shower me with gifts of the Mango bath and shower gel and unusually rich, but not greasy at all hand creams.
No hyperbole here! This product works and my skin is flawless, smooth and pore free.
Effective, but Expensive
munkustrap178 from Boston, MA
I must first say that I do not have a problem with pore size. If I ever feel that my pores could use a little attention, I'll usually just use a Biore strip and Kiehl's Rare Earth Masque: it always does the trick.
I must also say that my face doesn't necessarily need lifting. I am 30 and don't really have any concerns in that area; I also don't have any wrinkles.
However, being the Kiehl's devotee that I am, I had to try this.
I can't say exactly what it does, but it does make my face look good. It has zero effect on my pores, but I suppose it does make me look more lifted.
I generally use the Hydro-Plumping serum underneath the Powerful Strength Line-Reducing Concentrate, but I sometimes swap this in instead of the Plumping Serum just to change things up. The results are good, but not necessarily worth the hefty price tag.
