About the product

What Is It:


Consider this an eviction notice for your gunked up pores. Leaders Daily Wonders Pore Gone for Good Mask refines, cleans, tones, and reduces the look of enlarged pores by treating them with just the right combination of botanicals and extracts!
You’ve probably heard the buzz around Centella asiatica and all the wonderful things it can do for your skin. Known as “tiger grass” since tigers have long been observed healing their battle wounds by rolling around in its tender leaves. But Centella asiatica isn’t just for battle hardened cats, it’s a scientifically proven antioxidant that can help mitigate sun damage, heal irritation, and restore a depleted moisture barrier. No wonder it’s one of the hottest ingredients in K-beauty today!

Leaders has paired this miracle ingredient with Pinus densiflora Leaf Extract, another powerful antioxidant with anti-inflammatory properties. Together they make a formidable team in the fight against free radical damage and irritation. For oil control and balance there’s also Hamamelis virginiana (Witch Hazel) Water, which will also help with potential and active breakouts thanks to its antiseptic properties!

This mask is a great choice if you’re looking to treat overactive oil production, acne, and enlarged pores!
