I was super excited to open my first box and was happy to try Dr. Brandt's Pores No More Pore Refiner. I have combination skin, however, I don't necessarily have visible pores on my face, except for the small amount on my nose, and I'm mainly normal to dry during the colder months than oily, but I thought I'd give this product a shot.
The very first thing I noticed when I opened the product to use was the smell. It reminded me of acne medication and I immediately thought twice about putting it on my face. It also didn't really apply very smoothly or effortlessly on my face, and it has a strange satin feel to it that I don't particularly like in a product.
Overall, it didn't really do much for me--most likely because I don't necessarily have the problems that this product claims to fix --and the smell really turned me off (I know I have a very sensitive nose, but this was not a pleasant scent for me). However, looking at all the reviews, I'm sure this is a wonderful product for those who have a more oily complexion and visible pores. Perhaps I'll give it another shot, while plugging my nose, over the summer when my face tends to be a little bit more on the oilier side!
