Engineered for oily skin types (but perfect for anyone who wants to adopt an open-'pore' policy), our Steep Clean skincare system is formulated with clog-clobbering capacities to keep overly active skin feeling dewy but looking de-greased.
It's a powerhouse when it comes to purifying pores while making them look as puny as possible, keeping oil under control without over-drying, and battling breakouts.
So if you've ever contemplated treating your stopped-up skin with Drano or imagined people playing 'connect the dots' with your prominent pores, this collection and your complexion are a 'matte' made in heaven.

yellow+blue = ‘pore’-fect skin
When you use Steep Clean Pore Purifying Mask, you dispense the blue and yellow compounds separately (thanks to the handy dual-chamber dispenser), then mix them together. What’s the deal? Well, we’re not trying to bring back memories of first-grade art class or teach you color theory. Basically, mixing the compounds activates the complexion-clearing enzymes–so be sure to blend well so the goop turns green before applying!
The star ingredient in Steep Clean Mattifying Toner Pads and Moisturizer, Smartsponge Technology regulates sebum production and targets excessively ‘slick’ spots without drying out the other areas of the skin. How does it work? The oils in the skin activate tiny spheres filled with oil-regulating compound zinc gluconate, releasing it so it ‘mops up’ grease without disrupting the skin's delicate moisture balance. (Think of it as a bunch of miniature sebum-seeking missiles.)
