    Comments about Neutrogena Pore Refining Cleanser:

    I initially went for this product because by the end of summer the pores around my nose were becoming clogged and congested deep down that they could not be easily extracted. For the first week I used this it did dry my face out a lot but as my skin adjusted over a few weeks it started to bring the gunk in my pores to the surface. I also have a problem with flaky dry skin that no amount of scrubbing will get rid of. The acids in this product really helped to clear away that stubborn dry skin. When I stopped using it for a few days the flakiness came back with a vengence. Now that winter is approaching I'll switch to a more moisturizing cleanser but for the warmer months, this is my main man.

    This is a good product, and it really does what it says. It does dry out your skin slightly, but to me it's worth it for smaller pores.

    Comments about Neutrogena Pore Refining Cleanser:

    While my pores weren't huge, after a very HUMID summer, I felt my skin could use a change,maybe help the makeup stay on a little better. The wash smells nice and I would say that it appears to have improved my skin's texture. A small amount goes a long way& a consistent regime seems to be paying off.

      Extremely drying

      By Stephy

      from Bronx ny

      About Me Budget Buyer

      Pros

      • Refines Pores
      • Smells Great

      Cons

      • Dries Out Skin
      • Irritates Skin

      Best Uses

      • Oily Skin

      Comments about Neutrogena Pore Refining Cleanser:

      I bought this product based on reviews, prices and the fact that it claimed to refine pores without drying the skin. The first wash left my skin feeling tight, which in a sense was ok, since i could relate that to "refining my pores", but by the third day my skin was so dry that nothing could moisturize it enough. My chin and cheeks had it worse, and it even affected the area under my chin. Extremely drying! However I DID notice my pores becoming less visible, so its unfortunate that i couldn't continue using this.

      Very drying

        Comments about Neutrogena Pore Refining Cleanser:

        Unfortunately this one just did not work for me. This cleanser is VERY drying and would work best for extremely oily skin types. It did make my pores tiny, but my skin was very uncomfortably tight and after just 3 uses my chin began flaking despite the extra moisturizer I would use to counterbalance the effects of the cleanser.

            I used this product only a couple of days and it made my skin burn. I had to stop using it. My face looked like I had gotten a sunburn. My face actually peeled. Very disappointed and mad because I'm out of the money I paid for it.

            Comments about Neutrogena Pore Refining Cleanser:

            This cleanser works great with my Clarisonic. I use less than a half a pumps worth both morning and evening. My acne prone, sensitive, 40 plus skin is not at all irritated by this product. I have used many of the higher end as well as drugstore cleansers and found many of them too drying or they made me they made me break out. This product has improved the texture of my skin and doesn't leave my skin tight after cleansing. If I have been wearing make up I do use a make up remover and a make up wipe before using this. You can't beat the price point! I have paid much more for products that haven't performed as well as this one. I would definitely recommend this to a friend and I will continue to repurchase this product.
