I like how my skin feels after using this product. Highly recommend it to those with oily skin, blackheads and large pores
Just discovered this brand and am obsessed! This is a great exfoliant . And their retinal is non iRobot sting and the results are INSANE. I’ve already ordered their 12% aha toner, the jelly cleanser which is great , and a bunch of other stuff. Love love love this brand
I love it ! I love the texture.
I bought it because I couldn't stand the texture of the 2% BHA from you know who (way too oily !).
Porefectly clear is a very light gel that sinks immediatly into the skin. It is perfect for my very oily skin.
Thank you for this, G&G ;)
This product is a miracle. I've been fighting blackheads around my nose area for years. When I started using Porefectly clear, the difference was so visible, it is unbelievable. I just put a little drop every morning :) it's fine for my sensitive skin as well
please don’t ever change the formula! this is the best bha i have ever used. my whiteheads are gone whenever i put this on and it has improved my skin texture. i tried expensive ones but this serum performs best. love that it’s not drying or watery. keep it up g&g <3
