Not for me

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!

dislike!

I will say one thing for this: it does what it says. It really does make your pores disappear. But only while you are wearing it, and after I took it off, my skin looked HORRIBLE. I'll never use it again because temporary lack of pores in no way makes up for bad skin.

Better than another I have used

This is much better than another product I have used in the past for this. It's coverage is better and it doesn't have a really bad smell. It does not cake up like others. Seems to smooth out nicely either with my fingers or my beauty blender.

Tea tree oil...?
Sampled

Tea tree oil has been shown to cause breast growth in young boys, much like lavender. While that's specifically young boys so far, do you really want to take that chance? No thanks. Isn't this supposed to be a box for men, anyway? You can do better than this, birchbox.

smooth even coverage

A nice additional touch for a night out. Cleans up all the little unwanted blemishes nicely. Not a product I would use every day but would save for special occasions.

Just another product for the face

First thing I didn't like is the smell when applying it. Once you have it on you face, the texture is very soft and it smoothes your skin. However I think a primer is a much better investment and serves the same purpose, probably at a cheaper price.

Looks great!

I got this in my February Birchbox and was excited! I've looked at Dr. Brandt products for a while but haven't tried any of them out. This primer is tinted, but goes on very sheer. It blends out to a fairly satin-y finish, and does make my skin look a little more airbrushed. However, I still see some pores! Despite that, I'd consider buying this if I didn't have to pay full-price for it. It also smells great--like tea tree oil!

Excellent Product

I knew I was going to want this. It has a fluffy, smooth application and works perfectly to whisk oil away and minimize pores. Would like to try more from this brand.

Literally, Pores No More!

This product is tinted and while probably not a match for everyone's skin, blends in well. When you apply it, it is silky, smooth and distributes easily. I prefer to spot apply it to areas that need it the most. I definitely recommend this product to anybody experiencing little to moderate trouble with unruly pores as a temporary, but quick fix!

I usually don't use this type of product...gave it a shot, but don't really see the results.
