        I use this to help mask the huge pores on my cheeks and nose. The dermatologist says its mostly heredity, the oily skin and and sun damage and there isn't much I can do about it. so.... here I am. You can buy products in the store but some don't work at all... this is a thick formula, it covers better & lasts much longer. You also don't need to use much at all so don't be intimidated by the tiny size.

        This product "Blurs" the appearance of pores... you rub a small amount over the problem pores and they seemingly disappear. I literally can NOT apply makeup without it because the makeup rests in my pores and it looks yuck. This gives me a nice clean finish and no embarrassing mini, makeup-filled pockets.

        Yes....It will give a matte look if you use it as a stand alone - which isn't really something to complain about because most people with large pores have oily skin... get some illuminator if you wanna look shiny.

        I was an avid user of Clinique's Pore Minimizer/T-Zone gel until it was discontinued and replaced with Pore Refining Solutions. This replacement does not compare with the old formula. The original T-Zone gel noticeably reduced the look of my pores and my skin maintained a matte finish look for hours. I find that the Pore Refining Solutions in no way, shape, or form minimizes pores, it goes on feeling greasy, and never dries. Fifteen minutes after application my skin is completely oily again. Not a good substitute or product at all. I really wish Clinique would bring back the original T-Zone Gel/Pore Minimizer. I am very disappointed with product.

        Comments about Clinique Pore Refining Solutions Instant Perfector:

        Love the invisible bright on my cool pale skin! It blurs pores and lines too. The smell is a bit strong for me, so I only wear it on special occasions. (I'm super sensitive to smells.)

        I have been using this for 8 years and This is the best pore minimizer in the market ,I have tried other brand but always came back to this .It keeps my T zone matte for 6 hours and controls the oil .Pores look smaller and less noticeable .Also it evens out the skin tone .I hope I will always be able to get this product from Clinique.

        The BEST Pore Minimizer

        By 

        from Colorado, USA

        Comments about Clinique Pore Refining Solutions Instant Perfector:

        I have now ordered this instant perfector four times. I am in my early thirties and suffer from large pores and textured skin due to past acne. This is by far the best solution I have found to hide my pores and texture, and I have tried A LOT of products! I wear it under my makeup with my Dramatically Different moisturizer. I can�t rave about this product enough. It is like spackle for the face! I love it!

        Amazing stuff!

        from Ohio

        Comments about Clinique Pore Refining Solutions Instant Perfector:

        I have tried several high end pore perfectors and this one is hands down the very best! It covers my large pores with perfection and blends perfectly to give the look of a perfect matte canvas. I find it�s best used alone without foundation because you don�t even need the foundation! That�s how good this product is! Make sure you moisturize your face real good before you use it if you have dry skin.

        I don't wear foundation, just tinted moisturizer, so I love to put this over the moisturizer to 'finish' the look. A little goes a long way!

        Blur your pores

        By 

        from USA

        Comments about Clinique Pore Refining Solutions Instant Perfector:

        I've been using Pore Refining Solutions Instant Perfector for around 8 years, and I adore it. I apply it only where I need it (nose, chin), and I love to watch my pores virtually disappear. Under a very thin layer, my skin looks smooth and glowy--similar to the result I get from silica powders--without the mess or need for a brush. As my skin ages, it has become less friendly toward liquid and powder/mineral foundations. Everything settles and gets cakey. This stuff is my genie in a bottle.

        Has the formula changed?

        By 

        from Richmond, VA, USA

        Comments about Clinique Pore Refining Solutions Instant Perfector:

        I have used this for several years. It does a great job minimizing the appearance of pores. But, when I first started using Instant Perfector it helped control my oiliness, especially on my nose. I don't feel like it controls the oil as well now.

        Matte powder replacement

        By 

        from USA

        Comments about Clinique Pore Refining Solutions Instant Perfector:

        I use this on top of my foundation/cc cream as a matting powder replacement - a little bit on my forehead, nose, and chin keeps me shine-free all day. I like it because I can apply it with my fingers and don't have to worry about keeping any makeup brushes clean and ready.

        I use two layers of this product on my nose and it reduces the look of my pores. Can't live without it!
