I used this as a moisturizer for the day. I used a different one at night and a different one if I was going to be spending the day outside. It does hydrate and you can feel it on your skin like a mositurizer, just to me it was a little more greasy than what I like.

We suggest you try pore effect. It's used after cleansing and under moisture (if needed since it contains light hydrating ingredients).
You might also want to consider the blemishes no more - redness relief and/or pores no more moisture in conjunction with pore effect for best results.

I have used it after cleansing with Dr. Brandt's poreless cleanser at night. Have occacionally used in daytime if my skin feels a bit dry, especially on the cheeks where I have sensitive skin.

Yes, pore effect can be used on skin that is dry but congested. You may want to follow with pores no more - moisture after pore effect has absorbed to help provide light moisture without heaviness or shine.

answer 3
If you have dry skin and still break out, then yes, this product is great for you. The amount of salicylic in it is minimal, so it shouldn't dry your skin out at all. I typically use it at night and only in areas where I break out or have congestion, but you can use it all over.

1. black heads, 2. using on arms and thighs
Will this product help with minimizing the appearance of blackheads?
I was surprised to hear that this product helps to treat keratosis pilaris but would like to know if there is a body cream as $55 face cream is a little pricy to be using on arms and thighs.

pore effect will help clear out the pores and make blackheads less likely. For enhanced pore cleansing abilities, use in conjunction with vacuum cleaner and pores no more cleanser for the best results.

pore effect does help clear up KP on the back of arms and top of thighs. it works even better after using dr brandt microdermabrasion body in the shower first. a little really does go a long way!

Yes, you could use it for this and it would clear it up I am sure. This product is amazing! And only the tiniest bit would be needed.
However I would suggest using the Peter Thomas Roth line of shower gels. I have the Anti-Aging one which has salicylic and glycolic acids as wells as some other moistuturizing beads. (I am reading right off the bottle!). Anyway, that is what the the Consultant at Sephora recommended for me when I asked of similar concerns and I decided to try it.
It's a little pricey for shower gel but it works better for me than any shower scrub that I have tried, because I think scrubs make the problem worse. This gel has gentle beads and a nice lather.
My other suggestion would be to buy a bottle of pure Tea Tree Oil and add it to a gentle moisturizer like Cetaphil. Tea Tree Oil is a natural antiseptic and that may help clear up your bumps. Use a smaller bottle to mix the oil and lotion. I could not begin to help you on the ratio of lotion to oil but you could look on the internet for suggestions. Natural Tea Tree Oil is very potent and many people have had sucess with it clearing up acne. It is an ingredient in this product so it is worth a shot. You can purchase it at a health food shop for under $10.00. HTH!

Always use the refining cream after the toner. Toner strips the skin of oils and dirt so that the refining cream can be moisturized directly into the skin.

Afterwards. Since you have to apply the toner with a cotton ball, you'll just be wiping off the 'pore effect' if you had applied it first.

How long does it take to work?
I have been using this product for over 2 weeks. I was excited because it seemed to be bringing up all the dirt in my pores, but now it just seems to be sitting there and has stopped working. I use it twice a day. Now it just looks like I have giant dirty pores. :(

Hey so here's the scoop on what your're experiencing: one of the jobs of this product is to bring everything to the surface, but those blackheads aren't going to just fall out, they need to be extracted. My advice is that you make an appointment and have it done professionally and once they have been extracted, keep taking care of your skin like you have been and your pores will be far less noticeable!
