      • Perricone MD Skincare Specialist

        A:

        Hi there.
        You certainly may use the Intensive Pore Minimizer while experiencing rosacea.
        In fact Alpha Lipoic Acid is a powerful antioxidant which is helpful in calming the inflammation oftentimes associated with rosacea.

        Thanks for the inquiry.

    • Q:

      Does this product seem to have a lot of floaty-type things in it? The floaties are basically white in color. The product smells fine, but I'm not sure if the floaties are a normal part of this product or if the product got spoiled in delivery. Thanks!

        Excellent question!

        Yes, the Intensive Pore Minimizer does contain white particles which is perfectly normal; that is one of the reasons why we did not package a pump with this product.

        Dr. Perricone recommends shaking prior to each application.

      • Perricone MD Skincare Specialist

        A:

        Great question!

        Since both the Intensive Pore Minimizer and Vitamin C Ester Serum are serums I recommend alternating.

        In the AM apply the Vitamin C Ester Serum, then the Cold Plasma and a moisturizer should always follow last.

        In the PM apply the Intensive Pore Minimizer, then the Cold Plasma and a moisturizer should always follow last.

      Asked on 3/13/2015 by Krissy from San Jose, CA

      1 answer

      • Perricone MD Skincare Specialist

        A:

        Thank you for contacting Perricone MD.

        All of Dr. Perricone's products can be used in combination with each other.

        There are five steps to following the Perricone regime and they are:

        1. Cleanser
        2. Toner or Serum
        3. Exfoliant – (PM ONLY)
        4. Treatment
        5. Moisturizer

        The Intensive Pore Minimizer (STEP 2) is a toner and should be applied after cleansing, then follow with the Blue Plasma (STEP 3), which is an exfoliant, apply your favorite Perricone treatment and a moisturizer is always last.

        I hope this is helpful.

      There is a film or substance in the product that I can see through the dark glass bottle. When shaken well, as suggested, it appears to break up and I then see particles in the liquid. This does not appear to be normal.

      • Perricone MD Skincare Specialist

        A:

        Thank you for your interest in Dr. Perricone's products.

        The Intensive Pore Minimizer does contain tiny white particles which is perfectly normal. The majority of our toners and serums come with a pump but a pump is not included with this product because Dr. Perricone would like the Intensive Pore Minimizer to be shaken prior to each application; then apply with a cotton ball or pad.

        I hope this is helpful.

      I need a product that will minimize pores but also clear congested pores. Will the use of this product cause my pores to break out if they are congested? Before minimizing them? I am a 37 year old female with combination, and sensitive skin. Should I use this once or twice a day?
      Asked on 4/20/2014 by Parker from Big Sur from Big Sur, CA

      1 answer

      • Perricone MD Skincare Specialist

        A:

        The Intensive Pore Minimizer will not only clean out the pores, but it will strengthen the pore walls to minimize and help keep from clogging. If your skin is very sensitive, start out with once a day and work up to twice a day for best results. This should not break you out, but rather clean the pores to prevent breakouts.

        A:

        No, it is not necessary to apply both products one after the other.

        Continue using one in the AM and the other in the PM.

        For enlarged pores I recommend adding the following treatment:

        Cold Plasma offers the skin all it needs for optimal health. Cold Plasma helps correct the ten most visible signs of aging: wrinkles, enlarged pores, dryness, redness, discoloration, uneven skin tone, impurities, loss of firmness, loss of smoothness, and loss of radiance.

        Whatever your age or skin type, Cold Plasma delivers extraordinary results.

        Have a nice day!

    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!

    Comments about Perricone MD Intensive Pore Minimizer:

    This is my first and only Perricone MD product, and I am already on my third bottle! I am so happy I purchased it. I would like to buy more Perricone products, but I'm honestly so happy with my skin right now that I can't think of anything else I need to buy. FYI, I'm 25 and have oily skin, am prone to blackheads and the occasional breakout.

    Without exaggeration, I haven't sprouted a pimple since I started using this product, I also can tell that my blackheads on my nose are smaller. I use this twice a day after I wash my face (With Neutrogena charcoal facewash) and rub my face with micellar water on a cotton pad. The pad will still have dirt on it even after washing the face and using the micellar water! On mornings when my face still 'feels' clean, i won't even wash my face; ill just use this and the micellar water, then apply my day lotion. I love the smell as well!!

    I recommend using cotton pads instead of cotton balls to apply this, as they absorb more and spread more evenly.

      Comments about Perricone MD Intensive Pore Minimizer:

      I love Pore Minimizer. I enjoy using it and will probably need to buy another bottle soon. I'm a long time Perricone user but only tried Pore Minimizer for the first time recently because I wanted the Alpha Lipoic acid. I'm 60 years old and thanks to Dr. Perricone, my skin is looking great. I use Pore Minimizer in the morning before I use the DMAE pad (and the rest of the routine). At night, after washing with a Perricone cleanser I use it again before High Potency Evening Repair and Vitamin C.

      Comments about Perricone MD Intensive Pore Minimizer:

      I used this product for two weeks and saw an amazing result. I have had enlarged pores for many years and no matter what I did, the pours were enlarged. I've been using Pericone MD for over two years, so when I saw this product, I thought, well.... why not.... lets see if it works. I remember the day it arrived. I took it out of the box and went to work right away with cleansing my skin so I could use it. Right away I liked the smell, the feel, and the over all feeling that it left me skin. I knew that I would not see instant result so I used the pore minimizer for two weeks before I started to look for results. It didn't take that long! In just about a week I started to see results. At two weeks I was asking myself, is it me? Or is it really my skin that looks like my pores are really getting smaller. One week later or there about I was absolutely 100% sure that my pores were and had been shrinking. Then I ran out of the product! I was panic stricken. I didn't want to be without the product thinking my skin would fall back to the big pore scenario. Well... I'm here to tell you that they didn't. And, I went a couple of weeks without the pore minimizer because I had a hard time justifying the price so it took me a week or so before I ordered it. Once here, I started using it again. The first application, my skin was like, "thank you"!!! The reaction of my skin was immediate. Soothing, calming, firming and toning. I added the Chloro Plasma to my skin care regime, (got it as a sample when ordering product) and was stunned at the immediacy of the overall look and feel of my skin. I highly recommend the pore minimizer. It works and it works with amazing results! I look twenty years younger than my true age. : ) And, I owe it all to Perricone MD. No joke.

      About Me Brand Buyer

      Comments about Perricone MD Intensive Pore Minimizer:

      I purchased this product at the advice of a customer service rep over the phone. My intent was to add a product to address some blackheads. I should mention that I have been using Perricone products for 15 years and love them. Unfortunately my face broke out into horrible cystic acne after starting to use this product. I typically have smooth, clear and unlined skin , after suffering from breakouts in my teens and twenties. My skin looked absolutely horrible, covered with huge red, inflamed and painful bumps. I stopped using the product and my skin is slowly clearing up. This experience has made me reluctant to try new Perricone products. It is a hassle to send back half used products, so I threw away the nasty stuff.
