This product is amazing and it does not smell bad at all!! It's similar to Aveda or any other natural line. I am so tired of people "bashing" perricone because they think it smells bad. He is an incredible doctor with an incredible line of skincare. What would you prefer? Something packed full of unnatural and unnecessary ingredients (just to mask the smell of ingredients that work wonders for your skin) that take away from the efficacy of these products? [...]

I wanted this to be my final step in improving my skin. I love the no foundation foundation and also love the citrus facial wash. I hoped finally I found something that would reduce the appearance of my pores around my nose/ under eyes. Sadly, it was not to be. I followed the instructions for application-- cotton round twice daily on clean face. It did seem to overall reduce the shine I generally have but left the pores in my nose especially clogged. I stopped use, waited a couple weeks and tried again-- for at least four weeks. The same results occurred. Threw it away (along with my [$])

About Me Brand Buyer
Comments about Perricone MD Intensive Pore Minimizer:
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.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

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!

BEST TONER EVER
I just turned 36 and this is the only toner I have ever been able to use in my entire life that was effective and did not irritate my skin. My skin hates toners and it is amazing that I can use this twice a day. I usually try a product with the hope that it will not break me out or irritate my skin and I never think that it will actually improve my skin. I have acne prone skin, but it is sensitive. Now that I have a toner that I can use, I do not break out hardly at all anymore. As an added benefit, my pores have started to look smaller and my black heads are diminishing. I also use the hypoallergenic line and the no foundation foundation. My skin looks great. These products are way better than anything I have ever used and I have spent some money on some expensive products in the past. In fact, my skin looks so good that I no longer get facials from the dermatologist.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

About Me Budget Buyer
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.
