FREE Night Treatment w/any $49 Perricone MD purchase
Unique to traditional pore treatments primarily designed to "fill" and superficially mask pores, Dr. Perricone's liquid treatment, Intensive Pore Minimizer treats the causes of pores by performing three modes of action. One, gently exfoliating the skin of build-up, two, firming the appearance of sagging pore walls and three, controlling the oil production that leads to shine and the appearance of blemishes.

Consumer Study Results:
  • 90% reported their pores looked and felt tighter.
  • 80% noticed an increase in firmness of their skin.
  • 93% said their skin was shine-free, fresh and smooth at the end of the day.
Dr. Perricone recommends beginning each day with proper and thorough skin cleansing. This is a critical step in the treatment of enlarged pores to ensure skin is purified of the residue that can magnify pores. For optimal results, Dr. Perricone recommends first smoothing Intensive Pore Minimizer all over face and following with Intensive Pore Treatment, both morning and evening.

    Changed my life!

    Comments about Perricone MD Intensive Pore Minimizer:

    Let's be honest, nothing will shrink your pores. Once they're big and clogged they will be that way forever. The only real way to clean them and reduce the APPEARANCE of them is to get a professional extraction performed. However, this product assists in that process by helping remove the waxy top layer that covers the pore. Pores are easier to clean and maintain if this product is used every day. After a few weeks my skin felt completely different and a lot cleaner. My complexion is brighter and I noticed I wasn't having as many breakouts as I normally did. Alongside all of my other skincare this product has completely changed my skin for the better and I would highly recommend anyone give it a try. Use it on a cotton pad (I dip the bottle on the pad three times for my whole face and neck), not on a cotton ball or tissue or with bare hands. I would say this product is made for those that have combination or oily skin as it also helps with oil production. I use it with the citrus face wash and the face finishing moisturizer, also by Perricone MD.

              Comments about Perricone MD Intensive Pore Minimizer:

              After first use I could see a difference. My pores were so huge that POREfessional and makeup would not help reduce the sight of them. I've been using for a week day and night and they have reduced by half the size they were before. THE SMELL IS STRONG if you smell directly in bottle or are very sensitive to strong smells. I personally like it. I was hesitant to buy because of price but it's WORTH THE $$$. this was a lifesaver for me.

              Comments about Perricone MD Intensive Pore Minimizer:

              I'm surprised to see any negative reviews that this product doesn't work. Maybe there are certain skin types it does not mesh well with. I have huge pores on my nose and also noticeable on the chin and cheeks. This is the only product that has changed that and it is a drastic change (and believe me, I've tried a lot). You do have to use it consistently every day for 2-4 weeks to start getting the results. If you would like to minimize pore size, I highly suggest this product. It's expensive but you don't have to use a lot so one bottles lasts a long time. Just make sure to get cotton pads at the same time. Using cotton balls or tissue will waste a lot of the product.

              Comments about Perricone MD Intensive Pore Minimizer:

              I frequently shop at Ulta and always am on the hunt for effective products for my facial acne. Over the years, my acne has gotten better but my pores are enough enlarged on my face, especially my cheeks. A lady introduced me to this product and I tried it at the store. It looked like it worked and I figure, "Hey it is worth a shot." She said that the bottle would last for about a year .. which after 2 months, I have about 1/3 of the bottle left. I use this product sparingly and it has not lasted as long as I thought.

              I use this after cleansing my face and prior to putting on make-up. If you can get past the smell, this product feels good on my skin. It does reduce pores over time but for the price and quantity, I am not too impressed to buy again.

              I will be looking for another product. Like I said, this product does seem to work but too pricey for how long it lasts.

                I got this product for enlarged pores on my nose. I'm afraid to use anywhere else b/c I have super dry Colorado skin. So I just use it on my nose 1 or 2x daily and I have noticed a great difference. I have a Rx for Retin-A and this works far better. It also does not cause my skin to peel.

                    A:

                    Hello,
                    At Perricone MD, we use proprietary blends in all of our formulations, which is why we do not list percentages. The use of Sodium Hyaluronate in this product is to ensure the skin remains soft and comfortable while providing oil-absorbing benefits. Intensive Pore Minimizer, unlike many of its kind on the market, does not strip the skin of essential oils and moisture.
                    A great recommendation, if you love Sodium Hyaluronate, is to use Hyalo Plasma as your moisturizer over Intensive Pore Minimizer. It contains 3 dermatologist grade forms of Hyaluronic Acid- extremely hydrating!
                    Thanks-
                    The Perricone MD Team
