amazing!

I've been meaning to write a review of this for so long! I have been using this product for YEARS and it one of my daily staples. I have large pores and some little pock scars from acne, and this stuff is basically like a miracle. I put it on my nose and cheeks and it smooths out my skin and fills in all the little holes. I put it on after moisturizer and before any make-up. A little goes a long way too, and a tube usually lasts a month or two. I recently tried the "Pores No More" to compare, and was really unhappy with it (too liquidy, not enough coverage). I like that it glides on really smooth, and keeps my skin matte throughout the day. I will say that I have put it on without any moisturizer, and it got a little cakey, so moisturize before applying it. Other than that, this is probably my number one favorite beauty product.

Can't live without it

I've been using this product for 5+ years, and I love it intensely. After decades of oily skin, I have few wrinkles but enlarged pores. I jokingly call this my "spackle" because it skim coats my skin and leaves it as smooth as silk. A little goes a very long way, and it keeps liquid foundation from settling in my pores. It also gives powder foundation a base to cling to, making it last all day. The primer dries down to a powder-like finish, and even though it is matte, it never looks dry. I am extremely fair, and the Invisible Bright is perfect for me. Some days Pore Refining Solutions Instant Perfector is all I wear on my face. It provides a cream-to-powder finish that glows.

I always come back to this, ALWAYS

This little tube is the hands-down best mattifying and perfecting cosmetic I have ever tried. I always come back to it, and I keep tubes in my house, my purse, my office.A small amount of this will blur out my pores and imperfections, redness, fine lines, they all disappear. It doesn't look cakey or fake, it just looks like perfect, smooth, matte skin. I apply and blend it with my fingers, and it usually lasts all day, and I am oily enough that I usually get shiny despite other mattifying treatments -- only THIS keeps it at bay for hours or even all day.I always try out new "mattyfing" primers and treatments, and I always end up tossing them and going back to this. I first got a tube of it free during a Clinique promotion, probably 15 years ago, and it has been a necessity ever since. « less

Best pore perfecter and mattifyer -- ever

I can't say enough how much this product has changed my life (a bit dramatic, huh?) But no, having suffered from acne and an oily t-zone since middle school, and despite all my best efforts and trying every product under the sun, no matter how good my skin looked leaving the house, it would always wind up shiny.This has helped me to cover my large pores that I have as a result of my life long struggle with bad skin. Additionally, my skin no longer gets shiny. It stays matte all day. Of course, after a while, it may need a minor touch up. But anything being touched up is barely noticeable.I so recommend this product. I've tried others like it and they just don't work like Clinique.

Awful, awful substitute!

I've used the Pore Minimizer T-zone shine control for years. It has been discontinued, and this was recommended as a substitute. There is no comparison. This is terrible! The T-zone shine control did just what it said. It was light and comfortable and controlled shine all day. This product is heavy, never completely dries (feels like thick cream on my face) and certainly doesn't control shine. I've had it on about five hours today, and look extremely greasy -- and I don't have oily skin! I just have a bit of shine in the t-zone area. This will be returned immediately. Why Clinique thinks this is a better product is beyond me.
