I would like to begin naming some of the products ive used as primers. i will admitt i do not have huge pores, or extremly oily skin but i do tend to get the typical t-zone shine around my nose and chin. (Remember ladies i live in miami where it is always hot humid) ok so primers; SmashBox, NARS,Dior,MUFE,GArmani,YSL,Benefit,MAC,Guerlain,Clarins,Tarte, Hourglass, Urban Decay, Cover FX, Laura Mercier,L'oreal, Korres, Tarantino. i think thats about it might be more but can't remember right now. all of them have either broken me out, irrated my ezcema, looked horrid, made my pores clog, or just itched! this is the only primer i can say has no negative effect on my skin, and actually works. my skin stays oil free and no breakouts, makeup last, and worth the money! i recently discovered Smashbox has something like this now, i tried it at the store but im hesitant since all other Smashbox primers have caused my skin to go crazy. i might grab a sample and compare but so far this product is the one for me!

I'm speaking to the Hint of tint product in the bronze package: With the intentions of eliminating makeup steps in the summer I thought I'd try a tinted moisturizer and thought "Great, it mattified too", but I was not expecting the results I had seen. It really does what it says and for my skin, has incredible lasting power. First of all the color was perfect for me and blended in very quickly-no drag or difficulties-this stuff stays put once you apply it and melts in. It provided medium coverage for me very easily. And after 10 hours I barely had a glow on my nose and I was in awe. NO blotting all day; no powder either. Wow. The only cons were the price for the small 1 oz you receive, however I am eliminating primer, foundation, and powder...even concealer some days with this. Regardless, bc of the mattifying properties, I ended up needing almost a dime sized amount of product to cover my face and jawbone area (I use much less with primer and foundation in comparison) which makes me think that I would run out more quickly than I would like. Overall, a very decent but pricier find for a summer product that I will be repurchasing.

I tried this product after a recommendation from a girl working at Sephora. Let me tell you, I did not like this at all!! The first time I put this on my face, I could feel the this made my skin worse. My pores on my nose and cheeks are larger then ever! I would not recommend this product and I ended up returning it.

gives you a very nice-silky feeling, looks nice if your skin isn't dry, otherwise will show all the imperfections - dry spots and flaky areas.

I got this for free so I'm not really sure how much it costs. This is a great product. It minimizes your pores and for me that is AWESOME! I have really large, embarassing pores, and this really helped. I will definitely give it a 5 because it does what it says. But I wouldn't buy it again because of personal preferences. What turns me off about this product is the texture. It feels like one of those cheap knock-off yoplait mousse snacks -->Sorry I don't know how else to describe it. I don't use it much because I feel like it's a little cakey under my foundation and powder and also because it has an orange tint to it. I feel like it dries out my skin also.

This really should be in the "Primer/Corrector" category because in no way is this a treatment, it's a primer. So if you are looking for a primer, keep reading. This is an amazing holy grail life changing product (ok maybe life changing is a stretch). I have good skin but some larger noticeable pores on my nose which drive me nuts. I have tried so many primers: Cargo Blu Ray, Clinique Pore Refiner, L'Oreal Studio Secrets, Too Faced, Smashbox, Mac Prep & Prime, MUFE, YSL Top Secrets and even Monistat chafing gel. Did I miss anything? You get the point, I've tried them all and this is the only one that has held up. I adore this. Its just a great mattifying primer, with a slight tea tree scent, It is slightly drying but that works for me. The only other primer that has even come close is Cargo Blu Ray. If they ever decide to discontinue this I will buy a closet full.

I received a sample of this and ran through the house exclaiming the wonders of this miraculous product. I have had problems w/ larger looking pores in the last few years of my late 30's and I couldn't find anything to make them disappear. Others recommended a Fraxil laser treatment. Not ready for that yet. Anyway, I put this on one side of my t-zone and showed everyone. My friends gasped as it simply looked like my pores disappeared. It was awesome! Since the sample, which lasted a long time and like the other reviewer mentioned, "I continued to beleive it was almost out" and it almost never was. Now I use it sparingly but I do love it over my foundation, which I like to use little of. Yes, it did have a darker tone/color to it but that disappeared into my skin (TG :--))

I've been waiting 7 months to write this review. That's how long this product has lasted me with relentless daily use since the night I brought it home.
I'm oily. Very, very oily. If I wash and moisturize and leave my skin bare, I'll be covered in a thin layer of oil in 20 minutes and a thick, greasy layer in an hour. I wanted a pore perfecting/oil controlling lotion/serum/cream of some sort, so I figured I would start on the higher-end of the spectrum and headed to Sephora. This kind of fell into my lap when I wandered into the empty skincare section. I tested it on one side of my face and felt as though my pores had inverted themselves...magically. I bought it right away regardless of the price ($45 USD for 1 oz.), and crossed my fingers it would help control the oil too.
Did I mention how oily I am? Okay, good. Based on the oily factor, this product is almost there for me...but not quite. After seeing it under the 10 or so foundations I own, on my bare skin, with moisturizing, without moisturizing, at night, outdoors, etc., I can confidently say it doesn't do much for pores if anything. Sephora's soft day bulbs seduced my imagination in that respect. But as far as controlling oil? It cuts my regular oil production down 25-50% (more on better days), and based on how psychotically oily I am, that's saying a lot. I'm convinced that anyone with combo/oily skin could go a day without blotting with this stuff. Using it got to the point where if I was away from home and realized I'd forgotten it, I felt helpless and would resort to maniacally pressing translucent powder into my foundation in vain.
The tube seemed to last forever. In its last month of life, it was sputtering out every last drop of product thanks to the highly efficient pump. Every day I would use it and think, this is it, this stuff is done...but it never was. Until it finally was. So the price is high but you don't need to use more than a pea-sized amount for your whole face. My $45 lasted me the better part of a year.
Even though I felt like I needed it to get through my day, I don't think it's the best thing out there, especially considering the price. Even though I really wanted to use it up, in those 7 months I dabbled with other, less expensive products and have been pleasantly surprised. Because of that, I'm positive I'll be able to find something else just as good in a reasonable price. So, I probably wouldn't buy it again. Kinda bums me out actually.

Keeps my face matt a while, but does not do anything for my pores. This is expencive! I use it prior to foundation. I find that it messes up the makeup if i put it on after my foundation.

"Pores no More"?
The name is appealing,now only if it delievered on the name.
I for one did not find that to be the case.
It is really just like spackle. It doesn't make your pores smaller or tighter. It just fills them in. And the product is noticeable on the skin even with a foundation. Even just applying a tiny amount I can see it on my skin. Which is not a good thing.

This is very similar to my HG pore minimizer instant perfector by Clinique. I much prefer Clinique as it is fragrance and paraben free plus I can chose a color tone. The Dr. Brandt is a little too orangey for my fair skin.

Although expensive, Dr. Brandt Pores no more does it job which is keeping your T zone as less oily as possible. I checked my nose at the end of the day and it didn't have 2/3 as much oil as I usually do around noon every day, As far as pores' sizes, I don't see a lot of difference. I'll test more of this and will probably buy a full size.

does what its suppose to and blends well on my skin, i find it a little too drying though

I've been using Pores No More for about three years now. It's been the best makeup primer I've found so far. I don't have super oily skin, but I do have large pores on my cheeks. I use a little on each cheek and with my foundation (either BE or Revlon Colorstay) I have coverage that primers like Smashbox didn't offer me. The product is pricey, but I've had a tube last me 6-9 months. One con is that applying the product after makeup application seems to "wipe" away the makeup. Overall, PNM has been a HG product for me and I will continue to use it.

I've used Pores No More a few times but I've been having problems with applying my foundation over it. I use an oil free moisturiser and then gently tap on the tiniest bit of Pores No More and then let it set for a couple of minutes. I then apply Nars Sheer Matte Foundation over it... gently dabbing it on with my finger. I've noticed that I've had trouble blending the blending and when I rub it a little it seems that the pores no more flakes off. Does anyone else experience this or can recommend another method?
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination Hair: Brunette Eyes: Other
This is not a miracle product in any way. It doesnt actually "cure" my pores, but under my makeup it provides a natural look.
I do have to admit that I cannot not apply this anywhere but my t-zone, or I break out!
I have been using it religiously for about 7 months (it may be pricey but I am only about 2/3 through the it!) and even though I dont see a dramatic difference in the size of my pores once I remove the stuff, with it on and a bit of foundation over it, it looks nice and natural.

Simply put, the outcome does not justify the price. No way does it come close even. The product does leave your skin matte looking for a whole minute & does not break me out, but nooooo sorry didnít erase or fill even my tiny pores more than 15 minutes or so. If the effects lasted longer I may have given it a higher rating, but seriously this is just overpriced silicon.

-does mattify very well (lasts half a day for me but I have to re-apply around noon)
-isn't messy like powder (until you start running low, then it shoots out of the pump kind of crazily, so be careful!)
-doesn't give you the cakey look of powder
-odd brown color that somehow melts into your skin invisibly.
-tube is hard to get the last parts of product out
-VERY expensive ($45 unless you get a deal on it)
-still have to reapply; isn't a miracle product
-tube is kind of awkward to deal with and can be messy.
I have bought 2 tubes of this since Dec '08 and both have lasted me a full year each, so I guess that is worth $45. But I am using other methods for oil control at this point. I still stash a tube in my purse though for teaching or other emergencies when I don't feel like getting powder all over me.
I can't afford this, and I switched to using CVS Tinted Sulphur Acne treatment on my nose cheeks and forehead, and that (for 3.99) keeps me shine-free most of the day and clears out my pores instead of just covering them.

The one thing that this product does best is make pores look smaller. I was also told by the SA that this product would mattify my skin, and it does, at first, but then, you have to reapply it throught the day to keep the oil at bay.
This product can be worn under your foundation and act as a primer, or over your foundation (if you donít apply powder). When paired with poder foundation it ends up looking caky!!
It smells like medicine. Itís not a bad smell, but itís fairly strong.
This product is very over priced and does not make any other significant thing that reduce the appearance of pores and mattify (a little) my skin.
I do like that it comes in a pump and that is convinient and sanitary.
Won't be purchaising this again.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Acne-prone, Dark Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
I'm in love with this product!!! It makes my pores smaller and makes them concealed under my foundation. My face is less oily and my makeup stays put.
