I am one of those men that have severely congested and enlarged pores since forever. Started my fight at 16 and now at 41 and 25 years of this battle behind me I resigned to the fact that I only feel less selfconcious when I use cleansers that are close to paint strippers and load on silicone primers to disguise the orange peel look of my skin and reduce the shine which all oily skin suffers know not only highlights the texture problem but infact exagerates it.That was untill last week. I was given this thing as a birthday gift. I don't really understand it. After so much money spent and trying everything under the stars and every brand at every price and every ingredient out in the world I had something that seemed to work on the very first day. By day 2 I worked out it its great on wrinkles and you can use it all over your face even on dry patchy areas. By Day 3 I realised it reduces under eye bags. By day 4 people started saying how great I look. By day 5 the panic hit as I realised I can never be without since I missed a morning and by that evening it was evident some kind of reverse was happening.I quickly capitilsed on my birthday and got a good friend to buy me the Citrus Facial wash I think its called as suggested. This worried in teh shower as my face did not feel sandblasted like I like. Stepped out irrited and dissapointed - looked in the mirror and will never look back - its genius. The 2 together have changed my face. Normally by lunch I start greasing up - now as the day goes along I get less shiny and by evening I look really good. I am really excited now to try a Dr.P moisturiser and even an eye cream. Who knows what other good things lie ahead.

I have sensitive combination/oily skin that is relatively clear with the occasional breakout. After reading the great reviews on Sephora, and checking with in-store staff, I decided to buy the Intensive Pore Minimizer. Within 1-2 weeks time, I have cystic acne (which I never had before) on my forehead, cheeks and chin. I have not changed my daily routine, diet, or exercise in any way, so I point my finger at this product. Devastated. It;s already a big investment to purchase! Now it ruined my skin and I'm following up with dermatologists to treat it!

About Me Brand Buyer
Comments about Perricone MD Intensive Pore Minimizer:
Just purchased this product a few days ago. I have oily skin and I haven't had break outs in a few years except for a couple minor pimples during menstrual cycle. I have used this a few times as directed and I now have cystic acne on my checks and chin. The blemishes would itch and then become painful and bleed. At first I thought it was poison ivy because that is similar symptoms that I was experiencing. My skin was very sensitive to any foundation, moisturizer, etc. it would burn like fire for a day or two after use of this product. I now have wasted my money and I have cystic acne which is embarrassing and very difficult to treat. I am not a person who normally writes reviews for anything, but after seeing other reviews with similar symptoms I now know that it was indeed this product to cause this reaction. I would not recommend this product at all! Save your money and invest in something that actually works!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

It reacts weird
from Orange County, CA
i think it kinda does what it says it does. Here's my issue: i use a MAC brush applicator to put it on. It has white bristles. After using this product...the bristles turn gray/black in about an hour. Even after being washed with soap & water. Okay...so what is it doing to our skin? Also, there are white flecks/granules in the liquid when you shake it. What is THAT from? You dont want that on your face.

Not so much
from Denver, CO
I really wanted to like this. I'm peri-menopause and my skin is a wreck. Sometimes, it's dry and the next day I'm an oil slick with breakouts I haven't had since I was 14 years old. My pores have gotten large and the blackheads are to me unsightly. I used this with the complementary PerriconeMD treatment and it seemed to make matters worse. I remained hopeful through two bottles. Time to get a professional facial and keep looking for something to help my hormonal skin.

Intensive Pore Minimizer
from Augusta, Georgia
The first time I used this product my entire face broke out (dozens of blemishes) so I stopped and once my face was clear again I tried it again thinking maybe it was an interaction with face wash but again the 2nd time I used it overnight my forehead, both cheeks, nose and chin broke out with blemishes. Bad ones! Took weeks to get it cleared up. I do NOT recomend this product at all!
