This probably wouldn't do much to your pores if you have very oily and congested skin. If you have more of a combination-normal skin type then this will prolong the effects you got after doing a clay mask for a few extra days. It does also wipe off the yellow/darkness on the kness, elbows and underarms quite well though.Other than that, it doesn't really do much to breakouts, pores, blackheads, skintone or oiliness.

So far, I really like this product. I like the smell because it smells a touch medicinal. I don't mind it and it doesn't linger for me. I feel like it does a good job of getting rid of any dirt that the cleanser may have missed, and it also probably cleans my pores because they are smaller next to my nose. The thing I don't like is that I think I will probably go through one bottle in 2 or 3 months. This is a good product that doesn't dry my skin out. I feel like the darker colored glass bottle protects my product well, but I think it would be possible for somebody to spill. I do like the fact that I shake it up to make sure the good stuff gets distributed properly. I think it is worth a try. My skin used to be combo years ago, but it leans dry now. This product does NOT dry me out.

This is my go-to toner. I love this product and have been using it for many, many months! I use this morning and evening after I've cleansed my skin. To make this product last longer, I pour the product into a spritz bottle and will spray over my entire face and use a cosmetic pad to gently wipe it across my face. One bottle lasts me for at least 4-5 months, maybe longer.
My face feels refreshed after I apply this product. I've noticed a reduction in the pore size and my face isn't as shiny. When I travel, I will often leave this at home and can tell a big difference in the way my skin looks and feels. When I don't use this product, my skin doesn't feel as fresh and my skin is much oiler and shinier.
I started using the Intensive Pore Treatment about 2 weeks ago and using both products together makes my skin look even better. Even my husband complimented me a couple of days ago on how good my skin looks and the only thing I had changed to my routine was adding the Intensive Pore Treatment.
I've tried many toners but this is the one I use all the time and seem to get the best results from.

I've found this toner to be the best for my skin. It doesn't make me break out (which is a huge plus), it cleans out my pores and also helps reduce my oiliness. My pores have become more noticeable over the years. The Minimizer has definitely helped to reduce their appearance. I found this to be a great step in my regimen, but recently started using the Intensive Pore Treatment as well. I read that these two products are meant to work in harmony with one another. I saw a definite improvement when I used the Minimizer first, after cleansing and then applied the Treatment. Now my pores are significantly smaller looking and I produce much less oil. They are both non drying and non greasy products.

Had to return this. First time I used it, my skin turned pink. The second time, my face immediately started getting red and blotchy...yikes.

I used this product for 3 weeks because that's how long the bottle lasted me and it did nothing for my pores. My skin felt softer but it didn't do much more. I would never buy it again.The smell wasn't bad.

I can not believe all the horrible reviews on this product. Sephora has excellent reviews on it. I have very oily, clog prone skin and I've been using twice a day for only 3 weeks now and nothing has cleared the gunk out of my pores like this product. Normally I have to literally wring my pores out once a week on and around my nose, not anymore. After three weeks there is no nasty sebum there to wring out. Pores are also smaller and tighter because they are so much cleaner I presume. Skin is firmer, smoother and has a glow! HG!

Super pricey and it did nothing to my acne-pore skin. Plus, it smells terrible!

I did not like this product! I was on the fence between this and DDF 10% Glycolic Toner, at the recommendation of the saleperson I went with this instead. At $50 a bottle I felt it was pretty steep for a toner/pore minimizer. I used it the very same night I bought it and woke up the next morning with two large bumps on my face. I still gave it a chance for the day and used that morning before going out. It did seem to minimize the look of my pores and temporarily reduce the oiliness that I experience so badly but by the end of the day my skin somehow felt 'dirtier' than it normally does. I promptly returned this back to my local Sephora and purchased the DDF toner instead which I LOVE! I would not repurchase this item or recommend it to anyone.

First, this stuff smells really gross! Since I started using it I have not noticed a decrease in the size of my pores (I have been using it for about 1 month) and my face has broken out worse lately than it has in ages! I am not going to buy this again.

I love this product! I use it during Michigan's high humidity months, and it really works as the product description says its going to. It took some time to see a difference, and the funny thing was I didn't think it was working until I saw a photo of myself about a month apart. The difference in my pore size on my nose and cheeks was striking! Oil control during these high-humidity months became more managable, too. This is a product I plan on using April-September every year to manage my excessively oily skin and keep it looking fresh!

I have been using this for about a month and am pleased with the results I am seeing. I started using it because a sales lady at Nordstroms swore by it. She suggested I use it along with a clarisonic device. I chose to go with the Olay cleansing device and Perricone's Intensive Pore Minimizer to address my ugly enlarged pores. My pores are still visible there but they're not congested like they used to be. They look much tighter which makes my skin look smoother. I wish it were available in a larger size because I seem to be going through it rather quickly. I will definitely buy it again.

I will say this stuff works for my combination-oily skin. I am starting to see larger pore and more imperfections and after using this for 3 weeks, have seen great clarity and a more "refined" look where my pores were. I will say that this product smells awful...but it works! Has kept my imperfections at bay and gives me a nice smooth complexion. I'm hooked and already starting to think about getting another bottle. In a brown glass bottle that you shake up.

An interesting product brilliantly sold to me by a Sephora sales associate ! I don't know if this does anything at all other than cleanse your skin well .
Once your pores are enlarged, they are enlarged- the skin has stretched and no shelf product is going to give you back small invisible pores .. They are like stretch marks - so why I put aside my philosophy and believed the SA, I really don't know. This smells like fish - no doubt about it and has white bits floating about in it . This is part of the product - that's why you are supposed to shake the bottle.
Not convinced about this product though I know Perricone is god stuff. I will not buy again. Once was sufficient.

I have large pores on my cheeks and often break out around my chin/mouth area. After using this product for about a week, my pores were much smaller and I didn't break out once! My skin looks dewy and has a healthy glow. I get so many compliments on my skin, and feel so much more confident. I was skeptical, because I also switched to a different face wash, thinking that was possibly the reason for my improved skin. However, when I ran out of intensive pore minimizer, my face started to look dull, and I broke out all over my chin again! I have semi oily skin that's sensitive, and this is perfect. Highly recommend it!

It is the greatest thing I ever used!!! The thing is that all you need is just little bit, too much of it makes your skin burn and red. It smells like sope water, but I get great result after two weeks. I have supper oily skin and large pores, the treatment really helps my skin looks smooth.

This is garbage! I have been using Perricone Intensive Pore Minimizer for 3 months and have had no results. My skin is the same - super oily, huge pores and blackheads. I hate that I wasted $50 on this crap that smells like fish water. One of the worst skin products (if not the worst) I have ever used.

This is a new toner/treatment for visible pores from Perricone. It contains DMAE, ALA, and salicylic acid as the active ingredients. I replaced my regular toner with this product and changed nothing else in my skincare routine. I found this product to be extremely harsh on the skin. It did tighten pores, but it also left my skin stripped of all moisture. The exfoliating action of this product was also very harsh, and left my skin painful, red, inflamed, and even peeling and bleeding in some places. I have acne-prone skin and while using this product my skin erupted in large, painful pimples. I thought that with time my skin would become used to this product, or perhaps was "purging," which is why I continued to use it, even though the bad effects were evident after three or four days' use. As my skin continued to worsen with use, I did more research and discovered that the form of alcohol used in this product is known to be very irritating, SD alcohol 40-B. I stopped using this product after three weeks of use and have reverted to my old toner, Boscia's Clear Complexion toner, and will NOT be using this Perricone product again. A harsh, irritating product and a complete waste of $50.
