I'm back to share a new skincare product that is a must have in any beauty collection.  I recently sampled StriVectin's Advanced Retinol Pore Refiner and I'm absolutely loving it!  I have large pores and blackheads on my t-zone and cheeks that are somewhat bothersome, so I'm always looking for ways to minimize them.

Even after one use, I could see immediate results in minimizing my pores and evening my skin.  It also seemed to lighten the blackheads.  The lotion absorbed quickly and evenly onto my skin, which made it a great primer for makeup.  There were even some instances where I didn't use foundation after applying this.  I have combination skin, so over the course of the day, my face starts to get shiny, but this Pore Refiner reduced the need for touch ups.  The scent was light and smelled nice.

Reasons to Use StriVectin Advanced Retinol Pore Refiner
1. It minimizes pores (results are best after extended use!)
2. Makes a great primer under makeup because it smoothes and evens out skin!
3. Serves as an anti-aging moisturizer!  It's never too early to take care of your skin.
4. Gentle enough to use everyday!
5. Eliminates the need for multiple skincare products!

The StriVectin Pore Refiner is gentle enough to use twice daily and is best used as the last step in your makeup routine.  It is a little pricier than other products out there, but the benefits are well worth the price.  I highly recommend this to anyone and look forward to trying other StriVectin products.

Thanks to StriVectin and iFabbo for this sample in exchange for an honest review.  All opinions shared above are my own.
