I'm going to be perfectly honest: I don't understand what is in this product that is working wonders on me. I bought it on a whim because I have persistent cystic acne on my chin -- and read somewhere that pollution may be related to it? I'm not saying my skin is perfectly clear all the time, but it absolutely has improved using this product. I'm on my first refill of it, and consistent use in the morning has helped clarify my skin. I don't find that it fully minimizes my pores, but it does help. As far as I'm concerned, it does what I need -- and what I wasn't expecting it to do!

I love Paula’s choice products so much and was really excited to try this one. It comes out with a smooth serum-like consistency and spreads onto skin really well. It soaks into skin quickly and over time I’ve noticed a reduction in pore size and diminished darkness of spots. I have oily skin and this doesn’t do much to reduce oil in my opinion but it layers well under other products and makeup. It’s a bit expensive too. I would rather one of their great moisturizer or toners for the same effect.

Goes on my face light. I like using this. I do not see a difference in my skin but it does feel smoother. It does not sting or have any residue when I put other products over. A little goes a long long way. I would recommend to others for preventative more than reversal of issues.

This is a really nice serum for the day! I have very dry skin and dont find this to be very moisturizing, so I need something over it. But the ingredients are really nice to clearing pores and improving skin tone!

Paulas choice just had a promotion for this! I like how the product feels and that it helps with anti pollution and damage protection. It’s a nice light serum. I just wish that the container was a little better. Not a fan of the packaging. Other than that if you don’t mind the package, the product is nice!

I love using this serum after hydrating. It not only is protecting your skin from natural stressors and pollution, but it also helps minimize clogged pores. The defense line is amazing, I definitely recommend looking into it.

I love this brand so much! This product is my staple serum at the moment because I’m trying to decrease pore size in my T zone and I think it’s working. I want to try all of their products so badly. I love the packaging too!

This stuff works nicely. It's super light and layers well. I feel it helped clear some nose pores by cleansing them out. I love Paula's choice and this is a staple in my skin routine
