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.

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!

Can you use a combination of different cleansers and moisturizers of the Dr. Brandt skincare line?
I have some noticeable pores on my cheeks and nose area. Have the refining cream, the pore refiner and the blemish no more moisturizer. I am 27 closer to 28 and would also like to start using something to prevent any fine lines and wrinkles. What do you recommend?

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.
