    Comments about Dermadoctor PICTURE Porefect Pore Minimizer:

    I'm in my mid 50's so I've had time to try many, many so called pore shrinking products - while my dermatologist reiterates nothing will shrink pores. Well let me tell you, this stuff works! I have enlarged (read huge) pores on my nose, and after using this twice a day for only1 week, the pores have NOTICEABLY SHRANK! I'm pleased as punch! Now it doesn't smell great - the smell does dissipate - and it isn't moisturizing, but put it on the area that needs work and after it dries apply moisturizer. The pump on the bottle tends to put out more than needed so be careful cause a little goes a long way - and it is costly for the size of the bottle but worth every dime. This stuff is so incredibly effective that I will be purchasing 2 bottles at a time from now on!

      Comments about Dermadoctor PICTURE Porefect Pore Minimizer:

      This stuff is awesome. I've always had big pores on my cheeks and never saw them shrinking no matter what I tried. I thought it was a lost cause. Until the employee at Ulta recommended this product to me. I saw results after the first use! I could immediately tell the pores were smaller. Even the ones that didn't shrink a lot, still looked clearer than ever. This stuff smells like apple cider vinegar, which I oddly love about it. The only negative I could say is that if you have a pimple that was just popped, putting this on it will burn. Nothing I couldn't handle. I've just learned to be wary if I'm having a patch of sensitive skin.

          OMG!!!! FINALLY a product that works!! I had never heard of this product and quite honestly I would have never grabbed it off the shelf myself. The beautiful lady that helped me out swore by this product when I explained to her that I needed a primer that blocked oils and minimized my pores. Boy oh boy was she RIGHT!!! Thank You Thank You... Although it isn't a primer or advertised as one, it works even better than any primer I've ever tried. And believe me, I've tried MANY... Since wearing this daily, my skin has not only improved but my face looks flawless ALL DAY... I would normally have to blot a miminum of 3x daily and now I don't even have to do it once. I can just apply a bit of powder to my biggest problem areas and bam my face looks freshly done... Very much worth the price.. Try it, you WON't regret it!!

                    A:

                    I would suggest using the cleanser/toner 2X daily (am & pm) and using the Ain't Misbehavin' serum from the kit on blemishes at night. In the morning after cleansing and toning, you can apply your Kakadu C serum under your moisturizer/SPF to get the antioxidant benefits during the day and to help brighten the complexion.

                    A:

                    Picture Porefect contains retinol, glycolic acid and mattifying polymers, so you can use it as a primer underneath your makeup or simply wear it alone during the day to treat pores and mattify. The toner contains glycolic acid and should be used after cleansing and before moisturizing. I would not recommend using the two products one after the other because they are both exfoliating and could cause over-exfoliation/irritation when used in tandem.

                • Q:

                  While the description mentions the many benefits this product, including mattifying skin and decongesting pores, I notice that the ingredients listed are also in many anti-aging products. Could you please clarify the anti-aging benefits of this product, if any, along with which ingredients promote anti-aging? Thank you!

                    This product contains glycolic acid and retinol, which are both ingredients that help with anti-aging as well as oily skin/acne concerns. Camellia Oleifera (Green Tea) Leaf Extract is also included for its soothing and antioxidant properties.

                    A:

                    The exact percentage of glycolic acid is proprietary to our formulas, but it's listed in the top three of the ingredient deck and is one of the most prevalent ingredients by weight.

                    This product contains Salix Alba (Willow) Bark Extract, which is the natural version of salicylic acid and the ingredient from which aspirin derives. Anyone with allergies to these ingredients of their derivatives should avoid. If you are unsure, you can patch test on a small area to see if you are reactive.
