We know that it is impossible to shrink large pores but there are ways to make them appear smaller. Of course, those who have enlarged pores have to avoid using cosmetics with silicone because this chemical will clog the pores and make them look worse with other skin problems such as blackheads, and acnes. So, avoid ingredients such as dimethicone, cyclopentasiloxane, and phenyltrimethicone.
That is why I would love to share with you about this new product from Althea. The Pore Purifying Serum Cleanser contains ingredients that are great to have our XXL-sized pores get minimized. What’s more? It does not irritate or overdry the skin – Perfect for those who have sensitive skin.
We have been taught that primer and moisturizer are good friends for those who have enlarged pores. But, there is a need to grab a cleanser that can take away all the dirts, oils, and make-up residues so that every single particles of nutrients can penetrate into the skin – leaving a healthy and glowing skin, oh yeah, minus those breakouts and blackheads, of course!
Combine the powers of a cleanser and serum with Althea’s Pore Purifying Serum Cleanser! This beauty superhero whisks away makeup, dirt, and oil with mint extracts while ensuring the skin stays cool and hydrated throughout thanks to a dual moisture cell system that envelopes the skin in a serum-like formula. It prevents the skin from drying out and effectively minimizes enlarged pores, keeping it smooth to the touch. This product also helps to balance the pH levels of the skin to keep it working in tip-top shape! Best of all, it’s gentle on the face and suitable even for those of us with sensitive skins.
Exfoliating on regular basis will make the pores appear smaller because removing the dead skin cells regularly make the pores won’t stretch out and look larger. I usually use a clean washcloth with my daily cleanser to gently exfoliate my skin. In fact, I have been using a gentler cleanser such as Althea’s Pore Purifying Serum Cleanser to remove all dirts, oils, and dead skin cells. I must say this cleanser is the best so far because it combines serum and cleanser.
The best thing about this Althea’s Pore Purifying Serum Cleanser is the main ingredients which makes this cleanser a ‘must-have’. It is a great cleanser because it contains Mint leaf extract which helps to cool down the skin and soothes irritations. It also has Jojoba seed oil to deeply moisturizes any dryness without feeling heavy. Althea’s Pore Purifying Serum Cleanser is great to treat acne and pores because of its Tea tree leaf extract that is famous for its antibacterial properties that purify the skin.
Althea’s Pore Purifying Serum Cleanser has a thick consistency which makes it a great cleanser as it removes all the make-up residues in just a few massage. I just love using this cleanser to massage my skin because I can skip all the hassle of facial massage which I have been doing for the past few years. Save time especially when I’m in a rush.

Why do I love this Althea’s Pore Purifying Serum Cleanser?
- The usual range market price for a skincare product with serum + make-up remover + cleanser is between MYR40 – MYR180. The price for one bottle 150ml of serum cleanser is MYR33.00. I find this is within my budget.
- It’s really hard to find a cleanser with serum and can function as make-up remover. This is a bonus!
- It comes in a slim clear plastic bottle which is travel-friendly. The only thing which I would suggest to change is to have a secured lid because this product has a thick oil-based consistency.
- This pore purifying serum cleanser really makes my pores appear smaller, and it does not clogged my pores. The best thing about this cleanser is non-irritant upon contact with eyes.
