So happy that I found out about the Pore Refining Solutions Stay Matte Hydrator. **I am using this With the Stay Matte Foundation Makeup. ** In order I use Pore Refining Stay Matte Hydrator, (no additional moisturizer), City Block 40 sun block, Stay Matte Foundation, Loose Powder. AND Amazingly I am NOT having to constantly having to check the mirror and blot the oil off. (less stress wondering if I'm getting too oily) I can literally go 6 hours+ without the having to blot at all. Major difference. I don't think I've every had the 'dewy' look in my. I've just gone from matte to too darn oily in the past. I am HaPpY with Matte! Yeah me!
I quit using this because it didn't do anything to help me out. My oil is out of control and was hoping this would work. Nope. Tried it and I was broke out with shine within the hour. I do not recommend this product.

I bought it last week and it is really working for me

I love this moisturizer, I have very large pores and extremely oily skin. I don't use foundation or powder and love this moisturizer because it has a matte finish and my face doesn't look oily or shiny, it also minimizes the look of my large pores. Highly recommend!

This hydrator is good stuff. It really turns down the shine and my face has never looked better; my pores are shrinking, and I have only been using it for a couple of weeks. It really does control oil and excess shine while keeping your face hydrated. I have very sensitive skin and I thought this would burn my face and I was shocked when it didn't.
Raverah1031 from Ohio
All I can say is WOW!! This stuff really works! I applied as a primer after moisturizing and over 6 hours later my skin was still matte and my makeup looked the same as it did when I initially applied it. As an oily girl, I've tried numerous products to combat shine and NOTHING has ever worked like this! Amazing! But this! You will not regret it!

I'm a guy and have combination skin — very oily forehead/nose/cheeks with a dry chin, and large pores on cheeks and upper t-zone. I have tried so many mattifying hydrators that irritated the heck out of my skin/made me oily an hour after application. This stuff is gold. It's more like a milk than a lotion. It melts right into my face and instantly mattifies for literally the entire day. No burning sensation, actually feels soothing upon application. No residue. Layers perfectly with my vit C serum, no pilling, however I don't wear makeup so I can't speak for what happens if you try to layer on top of it. Price is steep but a little goes a long way. I'm so happy I found this.

I've been using this product for just about two weeks and I'm loving it. No more pores, no more oily T-zone area, my makeup looks flawlessly natural and stays on all day. Thanks Clinique!

This is the ONLY moisturizer from Clinique that doesn't feel tacky on my face. My skin doesn't absorb lotions very well so I prefer this soft smooth feeling finish. Wish their other lotions felt like this. I used to be a huge fan of their zero gravity for type 3 skin but it was discontinued sadly.
Cliniqueveteran129 from Washington, DC
I love this and wish I had discovered it sooner. I've been cursed with an oily forehead my whole life, and the problem continues even now that I'm in my 50s. I have tried everything and have spent years carrying around blotting papers to use on my oily forehead all day long. This product really works in controlling the oil. It makes my face look matte and smooth and it helps improve the appearance of my large pores. It works well under makeup or on its own. By the end of the day sometimes a little shine comes through, but I'd say this lotion controls about 80-90 percent of the oil. I hope Clinique never discontinues it.

I'm 55 and my facial pores have gotten larger on my nose and chin. This product has already made them look better in less than a week! I highly recommend.
Sunshine from New Jersey
This is absolutely the best face hydration cream ever! Makes your skin feel soft and not greasy. Highly recommended.
Ashley from Ohio
Does a really good job of giving skin a matte look without drying skin out or making it feel tight. Works well as under makeup primer
wino from Lakeland, FL
I live in the very humid state Florida, and have very oily skin; so I am always on the look out for mattifying products. Pore Refining Solutions leaves my skin mattified and also comfortable, not tight like so many others.

I use it daily and it does what it says.
Jess from OKC
I am extremely oily and id to blot several times a day, and it was embarrassing! This r
product has reduced my oil, and I've had to only blot once, instead of 5-8 a day.
Perkle from Walton, Indiana
This is the only mattifier that I have found that really keeps the oil on my face from shining all day. I tried about five others, and my face was shiny within a couple of hours. I highly recommend this product!
Kim from Greenville, NC
This product is amazing. My oily complexion struggles with finding the perfect moisturizer that keeps the oil in check throughout the day. The matte moisturizer goes on smoothly and makes my skin feel so soft. It also helps resurgence appearance of my pores.
mairina from Mcallen, TX
I love this product because it really does what it says, make my face matte, even the T-zone which is usually a huge problem for me. After applying it, the texture on my skin feels and looks softer. I hate to sound like Clinique ad but it actually improves the over all appearance of my face. I will say tho that i'm on the drier side of combination skin, so this product does not provide enough hydration for me.
Katherine from Chicago, IL
I've been using this product for over two years now and it's magical. My t-zone can get very shiny throughout the day. As such, through lots of trial and error, I've figured out the best way for me to use this product. In the mornings, I'll cleanse my face and then apply my regular moisturizer. Then, once the moisturizer has sunk in, I take two pumps of this and apply it to my t-zone. It keeps me matte all day, while also keeping my skin moisturized. And if I ever happen to get a bit shiny by the end of the day, I just reapply a little more.
Overall, I'm a huge fan and can't recommend this enough.
Anastasia from Chicago
The best creme for my super oily skin so far.
My skin gets oily very quickly during the day so I have to constantly use oil bloating sheets, powder and sometimes even cleanse my skin more than 2 times per day..
But with this cream my skin stays matte for a very long time and then looks nicely hydrated afterwards.
Mouse from Virginia Beach
This is very mattifying, so if that's your goal and you don't intend to put any other skincare or makeup on your face this is great. For those who layer skincare or put makeup on top: it feels gritty on my skin and doesn't allow for anything else on my face. I can't even put on sunscreen over or under it, it instantly pills with anything added. Further, it sits on top of the skin and if you itch your face there's something like a layer of it that comes off. I love Clinique usually, but I regret this purchase and given that I got it during covid with closed stores there wasn't a great return it option. I'm really confused by the bulk of the reviews being five star.
Anna from LA
It's good! When you use it for a few days, it's not obvious to see the result. After a long time, I feel my pores smaller
Kaplan from KY
This is heaven in a bottle! I have, well had, HUGE pores. I'm on my third use of this and my some pores have completely disappeared and others are half of the size. I found really pushing the product into the pores from all directions really helps. I have putting this one pretty thickly so take that into consideration but it is great and has given me wonderful results. I let my mom try it and she said she could tell a difference after one use just like I could. I can't say I have tried many pore refining products so there could be a cheaper dupe out there but all I know is I will never buy nothing but this. This is in my daily routine and there to stay from here on out!
Pilar from New York, NY
Started using 3 months ago and absolutely love it!!! I have oily skin with enlarged T-zone pores! After using this, my skin visibly improved and pores reduced a lot! Its not perfect yet, but super helped!!! Find it a little bit pricey, but it only requires a small quantity. so definitely worth it!
Divine One from Virginia Beach VA
I like that this product helps keep a matte look after I apply my makeup because I don't like that shiny face look. I've tried so many moisturizers and this one gives me exactly what I need. I don't go without it. Even works well when I don't apply makeup. It helps take away the shine.
Kas from Texas
This has worked great for me. Controls oil, gives my skin a smooth finish, and isn't heavy or cakey. I would definitely recommend.
