This toner is good to use to “sweep out” any guck you may have missed during your cleansing step. It also works well at mattifying oily skin throughout a hot day. It’s more for sebum/oil control, so it’s mainly a skincare product. As far as minimizing the appearance of pores go, it doesn’t do much cosmetically and you’d probably need a pore-targeting primer beneath your makeup if that’s the case. But it does perform its skincare functions though. 4/5 stars.
