One of the most frequent complaints I get from readers, friends, etc, is that they have oily or acne-prone skin, but the products they use to rectify the situation are really harsh and drying. Cue Dr. Jart+ with their new line; Pore Medic. The line controls sebum production in skin, reduces the size of pores, AND doesn't leave the skin feeling all dry or crackly.
Here are my favorite products on the line:
Pore Medic Pore Minish Cleansing Bubble ($32)
This foaming cleanser deeply cleanses the skin and sloughs away dead skin cells, while brightening the skin with eucalyptus and grapefruit extracts.
Pore Minish Mist ($30)
This is a toner that doesn't sting or burn the skin, but soothes it instead. A patented "Herb Complex IV" is anti-inflammatory to soothe sensitivity while it's mattifying. Bonus: you can use it after your makeup application to set your makeup. How genius is that?
Pore Minish Primer ($32)
While I know I'm not supposed to play favorites, this is my favorite product of the line. This instantly mattyfies the skin, so you could wear it on its own, but it also fills the pores for a supremely even makeup application. Don't confuse that with clogging pores though, because while it's in there it's helping to expel debris from the skin. It's free of harsh chemicals or alcohols, but it DOES have Hyaluronic Acid, which is something that is naturally occurring in the skin to help it stay plump, smooth, and youthful.
Purifying Mask ($29 for five packets) and an at-home peeling kit ($42) that is probably pretty incredible. Dr. Jart+ can do no wrong in my eyes.
