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.

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.

Whiteheads on forehead
Is this product mild enough to use on an 8-year old who has developed small white bumps on her forehead? She has bangs and her hair is oily, so she has a shower and washes her hair every night. Would you recommend a different product for clearing up whiteheads?

Absolutely! Everyone's skin has individual needs and responds differently from time to time so you may find yourself needing some products that contain more moisture during the cooler months and more actives during the warmer months to accomodate your skins varying needs.
Try adding some of the lineless products into your regimen like the cleanser and cream or collagen booster serum from dr brandt house calls.
Feel free to write to us at customerservice@drbrandtskincare.com if you would like a more detailed and personalized regimen.

Sister, I have never used any thing for fine lines and wrinkles and I am 41. I have acne problems. Some think I am in my mid twenties. Drink lots of water, eat your vegetables and fruits. Try to avoid eating animal products. Use this wonderful cream.

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!
