Pore refining/closing toner

Hi there, I went for a facial today and the beauty therapist said that the reason I often get spots and blemishes is because I have some open pores. She then recommended a toner which she said would close the pores before I moisturised but of course it was £50! I wondered if anyone had a good pore refining/minimising/closing toner that they could recommend? Thanks very much

You can't really "close" pores. They don't really work like that.

She's trying to sell you something worth £50 and this is unlikely to be the reason you get spots or blemishes.

I know that's not very helpful but someone might come along with something more helpful!

To be honest, if the therapist had guaranteed you that it would both close your pores and prevent spots with an offer to refund your money if it didn't, I bet you would have paid £50

Its that deep down you know this can't happen which made you reluctant!

I think you're right! I was a little dubious but love a MN wonder product so I'm hoping that someone will come along with a (much cheaper) recommendation that I can try.
