        I have combination skin and this product made my skin more oily. I have large pores and it did nothing to make them appear smaller. I am glad I bought the mini bottle first and did not spend the money on the large one.

                      If you let the product dry 1-2 min as suggested it does what it says! It fills in the pores and helps fill in the little lines on your face that your makeup would otherwise fill in and be more noticeable
