The only thing more satisfying than picking at your pores (which we all know we shouldn’t do, but alas we’re only human) is cleaning them out so good that there’s nothing left to pick at. While there are pore strips and facialist-approved extractors that can help get the job done, detoxifying serums can replenish and help defend your skin from pesky bumps for good. 

Among the most beloved is the Caudalie Vinopure Natural Salicylic Acid Pore Minimizing Serum, a vegan blend of salicylic acid and antioxidants that has raked up nearly 62,000 hearts on Sephora’s website. If this treatment sounds familiar, it’s probably because Caudalie is a brand celebrities flock to for its clean and effective ingredients.

Kourtney Kardashian told Harper’s Bazaar that she uses Caudalie because “it's important for me to use products that are as clean as possible.” Other fans of the French skincare brand include Blake Lively, Instyle’s August cover star Drew Barrymoore, and Margot Robbie. So basically anyone with skin as radiant as the sun credits the brand for its help. Noted. 

When it comes to getting rid of blackheads and pimples that resurface as often as ‘00s show reboots, there are a few tried and true methods that can help. Among the most effective are chemical exfoliants and retinols. The Vinopure solution includes the exfoliant salicylic acid (also known as BHA), which is known and adored for its ability to break down oil and dirt without leaving your skin feeling like a dried-out leather bag. This makes the solution great for daily use (you can put it on morning or night after you cleanse) or as a spot treatment.

It’s the kind of skincare item you want to keep around for stressful days, months, years, etc. Not to mention, something with such strong ingredients can really help you fight off “maskne.”

Shoppers say the serum is lightweight, fast-absorbing, and potent — just one pump of the product can treat your entire face. “It is a game changer,” wrote one five-star reviewer. “My pores have been less visible and my skin got so soft and smooth.”

For those concerned with sun damage and signs of aging in addition to pore size and blackheads, the polyphenols included in this serum are proven to protect skin from UVA rays and can reverse wrinkles, fine lines, and dark spots. So basically, it’s a miracle product that truly lives up to the hype. Shop the beloved serum below.
