sk:n Pore Refining Lotion 30ml
Blemish-prone skin. Suffering from spots, outbreaks and oily blemish-prone skin is common. Acne is a disease of the skin and can cause the sufferer great distress, trauma and anxiety. Under the effects of hormones called androgens, the sebaceous glands increase in volume and secrete more sebum (oil). In addition, cell turnover increases resulting in thicker skin and blocked pores. The oil that normally lubricates the skin gets trapped in blocked oil ducts. This results in pimples, blackheads, whiteheads, papules and pustules on the surface of the skin and deeper skin lesions called cysts.

How to use
Use in the evening after cleansing/exfoliating the skin. Apply a small amount to the areas to be treated.

When I 1st opened this and used it I was disappointed because it is runnier than I was expecting it to be, I expected it to be more like Avene Cleanance-K, and left my skin greasy. Then when I woke up my pores did look smaller and a spot looked less red and inflamed. deliver was super quick. I do prefer Cleanance K by Avene. I would only ever use this stuff at night before bed whilst Cleanance-K I'd use any time of day and be able to apply make-up over it

I love this product. After using it for only a few days people started to comment on how good my skin was looking. I've been using a rival product for 6 months, and switched to skin for purely for price, best move I made, this product is by far superior, and by far cheaper! Win! Win!
