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.

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!

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.

Question
Suncreen with this line
Wearing sunscreen daily, and as it's relatively greasy (Neutrogena), does it go on before this moisturizer? After? Instead of? I like using the Brandt cleaner, than this moisturizer, then the pore-no-more, then the tiniest bit of foundation and blush. Perhaps you know of a drier sunscreen, along with letting me know what the progression of steps should be. Hey, thank you so much. This has always perplexed me. I wish the moisturizer had enough sunscreen to forego using a separate sunscreen at all.

I'm light skinned, normal complexion.

Always layer products lightest to heaviest. i would start with pore no more then the moisturizer. And give the pore no more a few minutes to absorb into the skin before applying sun screen or any other moisturizer

Doesn't it bother you that make-up doesn't come with a minimum SPF of 30? Or that your favorite face products don't, either.
I love Neutrogena, and Olay, but like ANY facial sunscreen out there, it leaves your face feeling greasy or tacky, or both.
What I've found works best is putting sunscreen on first. That way, it actually is protecting your skin, because there nothing else in between the SPF and your skin. If you put it on last, it's sitting on top of all these other things, and it may not absorb as well, and thus not protect to the fullest.
The lightest sunscreen I can find is Neutrogena's Healthy Defense liquid moisturizer SPF 50. I love that it's such a high SPF, and that it's a liquid and not a cream or a serum. You face will still feel greasy afterwards (unfortunately that's just the way that SPF-enhanced stuff goes), but it won't be nearly as bad as if you had done it with a cream moisturizer.
You can then put the 'pore effect' on, maybe ten minutes after you apply the sunscreen to allow the sunscreen to absorb into your skin. what you may want to consider, also, is how much of the 'pore effect' you are actually using. i, personally, had bad luck with this product, as it is much too heavy/greasy for my skin. i found that if i used the barest amount, then it was just ok (but not phenomenal). so this product may just be contributing to greasiness that is sunscreen-unrelated. something to think about.
