Maybe not "Pores No More," but definitely "Pores a Little Bit Less

often question the miraculous claims of beauty products, as I'm sure most of you do. "Pores No More" had a catchy name, but its pore minimizing properties was not what most attracted me. It was its oil-reducing claim. I am one of those people who was...uhhhh... "blessed" with skin that is very oil while also having dryness, flakes, and redness.

To address the oiliness, I use oil blotting papers throughout the day. They are a true wonder, but there are times when you're in public and you just can't whip these things out. Besides, I'd rather just not get oily in the first place. While I know that's impossible, "Pores No More" is the first product I've found that seems to slow down oil production. I can tell because I now use fewer blotters each day.

As for the pore minimizing claims - there is a slightly noticeable difference when I put the product on one side of my face. But it does not last long, very possibly due to the oiliness of my skin. Others with less oily skin may have better, longer-lasting effects.

Tip for new users: A little goes a long way. Try just one or two little pumps until you see what works best for you.

Tip for all users: I hate wasting product, and in this case, there is still a LOT left after the tube stops pumping. I cut the tube open on a diagonal with scissors and use my fingers to scoop it out. I can get weeks more of additional use like this. You could put the remaining product in a travel pot to keep it fresh.
