I’ve wanted to try Dr. Brandt’s Pore No More Pore Refiner Primer for ages now. The last time I made a Sephora order it was being offered as a 100 point perk, so I didn’t hesitate to grab one. I’ve been using it under my foundation for a while, but I’m glad I got it as a deluxe sample instead of purchasing it.
I’ll start off by saying that this product is aimed at those with oily to combination skin which I knew when I started using it. I have dry skin, but I find the Benefit Porefessional (also a pore refining primer aimed at oily to combination skin) to work well under my makeup regardless, so when I heard rave reviews of this product I was eager to try it for myself.
It really does minimize the look of pores which is what it’s supposed to do, so I really have no complaints there. I just find my makeup doesn’t sit well on top of it and becomes cakey looking in certain areas which I don’t like. I also don’t care for the scent of it.
While this product doesn’t work for my skin type I could definitely see how it would work well for those with oily and combination skin. I’ll continue to use this product on ‘no makeup’ makeup days as I like the way it reduces the look of my pores and that way I won’t be applying foundation on top of it.
Have you guys tried this primer? What did you think of it?
