it doesn't close up pores...I have big pores. it just control your oil. I'll use a good cleanser or with a brush to clean out the dirts rather than keep using the primer to hide my pores cos they'll cause breakouts. I've experienced that too often and never came across when i was younger... good luck!

yes but nothing drastic if you want something to minimize pores i would recommend a different primer such as tarte :( If you add a moisturizer or even natural coconut oil it is amazing about 100x better than the original product so if you add a moisturizer then yes

Slightly, it more so controls oil, you're best bet for minimizing pores is a cleanser or mask like Philosophy's mattifying mask,

Keep in mind, pores are hereditary. If you have very big pores, nothing will shrink them or give you miracles. They key is to makes sure your pores are clean from the oil so they do not expand more. A skin care plan is important and so are facials. With that being said, this is a primer that works with the foundation. I think the foundation and the primer work well together to help conceal large pores.

Really makes your skin look and feel healthy if it's on the oily side. I think it helps with pores.

It is the Neutralizing primer. It has a yellowish tint to help offset any redness, therefore giving your face a neutral skin tone.

Prime Time Original is clear and goes on velvety. Prime Time Brightening has a bit of a pearlescent tint.
