Best under make-up with sunscreen.

Comments about DHC Pore Essence:
I really like how this makes my skin feel as well as look. I usually use it under make-up instead of a primer. I find it's not the best under my powder foundation, but under the liquid foundation with sunscreen. It counteracts the shiny, pore-opening effect of many sunscreens. It smells really nice.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

DIDN'T WORK FOR ME
from Lowndesboro, Alabama
Totally useless - could not tell any difference my pores and it certainly didn't seem to help with oil absorbtion. I am returning it.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
from Greenville, SC
This product works well to fill-in pores and help make-up look flawless. I would highly recommend.
Pores? What pores?
from Anchorage, AK.
I've always been unhappy with the pores on my face being so noticeable. But with this product, it minimizes them on your first use. You don't have to wait for any amount of days to see results! I love this product, only wish it came in a bigger tube............Worth the money.

Don't Waste Your Money
I bought this to try along with the Pore Set, and I only used this product for 2 days. The first time I tried it I was greatly disappointed. Tried it the second day to give it the benefit of the doubt, and it was just as horrible as the first time around. First off, I have extremely oily skin that is prone to hormonal/cystic acne break-outs AND on top of that is also sensitive. The pores on my nose are the worst zone on my face, highly visible and pump out excessive amounts of sebum. After washing and moisturizing, and before I applied any make-up, I smoothed a small amount of Pore Essence over my entire face, and smoothed an extra dab on/around my nose. I applied my make-up as usual. A few hours later, by 9am, areas of my face looked dewy (oily) and my nose was a shiny/oily mess. I felt like I had to blot my nose/face every 15 minutes with tissue, and the tissue looked like I was carrying around French fries in it. Completely gross, and I had to spend the entire day at work with all my make-up streaked off my face, plus shiny sebum oozing pores.I didn't even give this product '3 strikes and you're out'. After the second day fiasco of the same results I went back to the BB cream I was using (from the drugstore), and was happy to have a matte/shine-free face again all day long. Do NOT waste your time or money on this product.

Although my pores never completely vanished, the did appear smaller. I have to keep it with me to reapply during the day.

Perfect product for oily skin
By Happy Me
from Fargo, ND
This is the most effective product I have found for helping with that stubborn oily T-Zone. I have had combination skin - leaning more to the oily side - all my life. Friends kept telling me that was good because, as I aged, that oiliness would hold back the tell-tale signs of aging. I am 55 now and, true, I don't have that many defined wrinkles (yet!) but my skin is still too oily for my liking. This product has eliminated my need for blotting papers and the mid-day "refreshing" application to reduce shine.
