Most Helpful Positive Review Found my new BFF
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!
Most Helpful Critical Review Horrible Oil Control
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 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.
Actually Works and Quickly!

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.
Makes your skin feel so soft
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.
The product is a bit pricey, but it does what it says.
Me from Florida
I use it daily and it does what it says.
It Works!!!! ❤️
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.
GREAT product! The BEST!
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!
My new daily moisturizer!
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.
This stuff is magical
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.
Yes, yes and yess!!
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.
My pores become smaller
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
Yesss! Heaven in a bottle for pores!
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!

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!
This product works
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.
Great for my skin
Val from SF, Ca
I have combination oily skin, where my T-zone is very oily. When I put this hydrator in the morning, I stay matte the entire day! Love it! It was difficult to find a product that would keep my T-zone not shining but this one made it.
Favorite day time face lotion
MandaLa from IN
I like using this face lotion during the day doesn't dry out my face irritate my skin or make it feel tight .. Perfect hydrator for before your makeup or without my skin looks soft moisturized and matte!
My Little Secret
Cee Bee from Florida
I have particularly noticeable pores, but I can't stand wearing foundations or make-up, so when I came across this I had to try it. It's perfect! Just a small amount noticeably reduces my pores, and gives me a healthy glow! It's a polished look without all the hassle!
Love the results
Bhoosetta from Springville, Utah
I like the way it feels on my skin, it's light and it's helped my pores so much!
Love it! The best!
Matt from New York
I literally LOVE this mattyfing cream! It contains a little bit of invisible powder with sparkling small something so your face it's not sadly mattified, not greyish... it's beatiful, and your skin is so smoothed, so nice. My men face is fully mattified for about 4-6 hours in T-zone and all day on my patches. I recommend use this cream over 3rd step, otherwise your skin can be a little dried. This is tye best mattifying cream I've ever used!
Perfect Matte Moisturizer

This product is perfect for oily/combination skin. I love where it is very hot in the summer. This product is lightweight and keeps my skin looking great!
Highly recommend this product.
Sandy from Stuart, Florida
I've been using this product for several years, it moisturizes and is a great primer for your makeup. Allows makeup to go on smoothly with great coverage while using less.
