Having used for several years, this product delivers. Having read the negative reviews, people don't understand this product. It is not cure for large pores. Pores are made smaller only by microdermabration, people. This product fills in large pores like putty, and with a very light powder over the top, the product will stay in place. Dont touch your nose so much! But if you do, you can reapply. Use sparingly. When your supply is almost gone, cut the tube and scoop the rest of the product out into a small container, and put it in your purse for touch ups. Than you Dr. Brandt! Godsend.

This product is amazing! Not for reducing the appearance of larger pores though. For me, it is to control my oil production especially in the T-zone. At first, I apply it before foundation, and my nose produced so much oil within an hour. I was very upset and talked to the store manager. She told me to apply it ON TOP of foundation. So I did, and voila! 6-7 hours without shine! I do not know how this product works. But trust me, it does! I live in a super hot and humid country and even when I'm out in the sun, it can last me till at least 4 hours. I do not use any sort of blotting sheet or apply powder for touch ups. I might not repurchase this though, since it is so expensive. I heard many Korean brands such as Legere do the same thing. Would try that next time.

It does the same exactly thing as the Clinique pore minimizes instant perfector. It's a paste texture that becomes powder when u apply it. It gives you a baby like skin finish but apparently it is only a short illusion ! After 2 minutes the pores are back there. If you use it as a primer, the effect will disappear as soon as you apply foundation. If you apply a powder, up drag the product away from your face and pores are visible again. Don't bother.

I bought this after a Sephora girl recommended I use it as a primer. I've been using it for the past year and I don't see much of a difference. I'm not a fan of pumps for items with thicker consistancies like this because I feel like there is so much product left behind.

I don't understand the good reviews for this. I purchased this to shrink my pores. When I first tried it on at Sephora my skin actually looked great! It looked like it did the job. I went back and purchased the next day and I'm finding this is just an awful product! It does the opposite - makes my pores larger (when you look at them in broad day light), does nothing for oily skin and leaves a weird powdery residue on your skin. Needless to say, this is going right back to Sephora. Good thing for their lenient return policy.

I had really high hopes for this one. But it dosen't do anything good for my skin. :-( Will not buy it again !!

Like most of the other reviewers; I had high hopes for this product after a Sephora consultation.
I really wanted to LOVE it! However, this product amplified the very thing I was hoping to control! My mildly oily skin is an oil slick when I use this product under powder foundation! YECH! I can not begin to describe how it affected my skin. I have used dozens of mattifiers and this one is USELESS and EXPENSIVE!! It will be going back to Sephora this weekend.
MK and Clinque are still the best mattifiers around!

Meh... To start I have acne-prone, sensitive and extremely oily skin. The only good thing about this product was that it didn't break me out, however, it's not effective on my skin. It instantaneously mattifies my skin, and fills in the large pores on and around my nose really well... for five whole minutes. Then it's like I haven't applied anything on my face. Pricey product that doesn't deliver.

I brought this product after getting advice on oily skin from space nk and at the time I thought it was the best thing in the world and it mattified the oily t-zone area and felt so smooth and oil free! Then after using for a week. Completely dried out my skin and made my forehead feel really tight almost like I had Botox! So initial thoughts Great, overall, rubbish! Sorry

This contains a mix of different silicones, and feels slippery on the skin and fingers when applied... Silicone is not too god for acne prone, sensitive skin, and I hate that slippery feeling you get!
It does minimize pores for a few houres, but still I think it contains too many artificial ingredients... I want a more natural-based product!

A Sephora associate suggested this to me as I complained about my severely oily skin. I'm not sure what she mixed it with but it lasted for a good six hours after I left the store. However, after bringing it home and applying under my foundation (MUFE HD) the next day it was a different story. My nose, cheeks and forehead was matte for a good two hours before it was an oil slick. I mean, literally soaking. through. blotting sheets. This product is much too expensive to work this way.

This is the only product I have ever returned to Sephora in my life! I am so disappointed with it! I am not one to return or give up on stuff, but this time...I did.
This stuff is greasy and feels heavy on my skin. It does not do much to minimize my pores. I have used many products, as I have very large pores, and this was sort of the worst of all things. I mean it wasn't absolutely disgusting. But it was not worth it. At all.
I have used Urban Decay's pore minimizing primer potion. It is great in terms of result, and isn't gross on, but can sometimes break me out. But I exchanged this Pores No More to go back to UD.
I don't know why, but Sephora sales associates love it. It is mediocre AT BEST. And it is crazy expansive. For nothing. I am willing to pay a lot for a product...if it knocks my socks off.
This would fall flat for $10. It is useless for $50.

On the fence with this one. As a kind of pore minimiser it is not particularly effective.
Yet on the plus side: performs a kind of primer action, which assists foundation adherence. That said, in performing this primer function it mimics a 'barrier' sensation on the skin since it never fully absorbs.
What's more, it's top-heavy in synthetic ingredients, so not inspiring for those who favour top-heavy botanical based products.

I have been using this product for at least three years every morning. It does mask pores to create a cleaner look and also does a great job at controlling shine throughout the day. Also works as a great primer for makeup. The smell is tea tree oil and it does go away within minutes (I forgot about it until I read a review). Cons: it is expensive (but lasts 2-3 months with daily use, and little bit goes a long way. Also, packaging is annoying-- they need packaging that prevents product waste at end of use (without having to cut it open!).
Overall, strong product, highly recommended for those with oily skin/ larger pores in need of concealing.

I used the "little bit of tint"-- not just a little tint, a lot for someone so pale. I was hoping it would give me a glow instead it gave me a mask. This is definitely not a treatment but just a cosmetic aesthetic product, a primer or even a foundation. I could see it really working for someone- it felt nice on my skin and it was very smoothing, but the second I washed it off it didn't change anything ( a little expensive for that). Unfortunately, with the outrageous tint, this just was not for me. And I don't think I'll be trying the one without it. Pale people beware!

I've been using Pores No More for about four years now and can't live without it.
I like the fact that I can reapply throughout the day and it doesn't give me any streaks and flakiness. I blends in well with my Bare Escentuals mineral foundation.
The price is not that bad, given the fact that you don't need much product to mask the pores.
Once applied in the morning, I'm matte for about 6 hrs.

I had such high hopes for this product. This did nothing more for me than a primer would. It didn't make my pores look much better and the worst part was the SMELL!! It smelled just like bug spray. This is going back.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Acne-prone, Olive Hair: Brown, Wavy, Fine Eyes: Brown
I had the tinted version. This was a great product at first. It made my face look gorgeous! It does a great job filling in large pores and keeping a good bit of oil at bay. I got many compliments on my makeup because it helped my foundation stay on better and controlled the oil some.
3 weeks into using it I got 6 cystic pimples at the same time. Most on my jawline, one on my forehead, and one on my cheek! I know it was this product because this was the only thing that changed in my routine in a month. After all the years it took for me to get my skin clear, I am reluctant to try knew things. Case in point! Good product, but if you are acne prone beware!!!

I was looking to buy the small size of the Perfekt foundation but Sephora was out of it. So a Sephora SA recommended this instead. Honestly, I was not familiar with the brand and totally clueless about the reviews. So I tried it on my nose, liked it and bought it. I got the one with the HINT OF TINT. It is totally buildable to the extent that can cover flaws. It has been made for oily to combination skin and my skin is pretty oily. So I went home and applied it to my whole face and wore my favorite NYC Sunny bronzer on top and practically test drove it for 5 hours. Nothing happened, no shine, no grease and my skin remained as fresh as when it was applied. This very much reminded me of my 24-7 primer and Clinique's old Pore Perfector. The huge benefit to this product is that the coverage is buildable but not offensive or noticeable. Pores? Which pores? The tint is pretty much skin color that can adapt to your true skin tone. LOVE THIS AND HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT TO PEOPLE WITH OILY SKIN. I will update on longer hours of wearing this product.

This is an excellent product I often wear alone, under make-up, and over make-up. It has a great texture, blends nicely, and most important of all, fills in my massive nose pores. I have tried Benefit's POREfessional, Smashbox's Photofinish, and L'Oreal's Studio secrets, and found that they were either to greasy or didn't adequately fill in my pores.
Pores no More truly fills in my pores and as a result, I absolutely love it! Even on my most "no-make-up" days a bit of this boosts my complexion. While expensive, a little goes a long way, and I will definitely repurchase.
