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!

Clogged Pores & Cysts!
from New York, NY
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!
