    This stuff is incredible !
    Has really helped improve dark marks from breakouts
    Will now be a staple in my routine for sure
    Susan P - Great Product
    I love this! I have always had big pores and blackheads. Tried everything. This does what it says it does. Pores are so much clearer now. Even stubborn blocked pores are so much less noticeable. I’ll keep using this.
    Diane - OMG
    If you have congested skin then you really need this serum. I've only been using this for a week and now I have the clearest skin I've ever had. (I'm mid fifties). It really is that good. Can't praise it enough.
    Phoebe - Great serum
    I have been using the Defense pore purifier for a few weeks now and I am loving it so far. The lightweight texture is lovely and absorbs really nicely leaving my skin feeling comfortably hydrated but not at all sticky. I am a big fan of the packaging - the nozzle makes it very easy to dispense just the right amount of product so no wastage! I've noticed a definite brightening in my complexion and I love that the antioxidants protect my skin against environmental damage!
    Christina - My skin looks much brighter
    I have been using this all over for about 3 weeks and my skin definitely a lot brighter and the open pores on my cheeks are less visible.
