Product Review: Kiehl's Rare Earth Pore Minimizing Lotion

As you'll know by now how much I love Kiehl's. I particularly love their Rare Earth collection as its specifically meant for oily skin and open pores, and I have exactly the same concerns! So my choice of rare earth was pretty much an obvious one. I have actually tried their entire range minus the toner and I actually like their products. I have reviewed the cleanser HERE and the masque HERE and I actually love the masque a lot!!

My Take On Kiehl's Rare Earth Pore Minimizing Lotion:

Open pores, oily skin and frequent breakouts have been a major concern in my life and switching to Kiehl's Rare Earth products has been a very wise decision.

Kiehl's Rare Earth Pore Minimizing Lotion come in a fuss free sturdy bottle with a pump, so there is no wastage of product. It also has a cap that protects the pump so basically the packaging is very hygienic.

The consistency of the product is quite runny (not too thick nor thin), about 2 pumps of the product is required for the face. The lotion gets quickly absorbed into the skin leaving it soft and totally mattified which is ahmazzing! The matte finish lasts about 5 hours which is good enough.

The product works well on pores. I have enlarged pores and my skin tends to get extremely oil and this product has helped me in reducing the oil on my face and pores are somewhat minimized but not gone completely. The key ingredient is amazonian clay which helps in sucking out excess oil from the face and leaving it oil free. 

It has a very clay-ish smell which is boring but not at all bothersome. All the rare earth products have the exact same fragrance. The product has worked extremely well in controlling the oil and has not broke me out which is a bonus!

I use this mostly at night or during the day when I do not have to go out as it has no SPF. If I apply this and need to go out I make sure I use an SPF! 


1. Works in refining the pores and makes the pores look minimized.
2. Amazonian Clay sucks out the excess oil from the skin and gives a matte finish.
3. Very moisturising.
4. Packaging is hygienic and very travel friendly.
5. Does not break me out.
6. Fragrance is clay-ish but not over powering!


1. No SPF! so this is ideal to be used at night times.
2. Price is quite high!!


Rare Earth collection is ideal for oily skinned girls, this lotion helps in absorbing excess serum and refining the pores. This is not ideal for day time it has no SPF, but can be very moisturising to be used at night. Overall a nice product, but not a great one!
