Where are my pores!I have tried so many primers that claim to minimize pores. None of them have been able to live up to this one. It does not break me out, and actually makes my very-visable pores DISAPPEAR under my makeup. My face looks flawless when I finish applying my foundation. It also keeps my makeup in place ALL DAY. That is sometimes over 12 hours- when I get to bed my face still looks great! 
A tip- a little goes a long way! I use half a pea sized amount and only apply where my pores are very large. I have found that if I use too much product, it can 'ball up' and really mess up my blank canvas (face) before applying my makeup.It also really helps my oily skin as well.

This primer reminds me of  BECCA Velvet Blurring Primer - Perfecting Base in that it has a tint to it; Dr. Brandt's primer is tan but it dries clear.  It's not quite as powdery as Becca's but it helps to blur pores just as well. 

It claims to be fragrance free but I can clearly smell tea tree oil.  I only use this primer in my T zone and it does help keep my pores from looking so obvious.  My makeup blends in a lot easier.  With a good setting powder and spray, I am able to remain shine free for almost 7 hours.

Holy. Grail. Primer. I have dry/combo skin and this stuff makes my skin look flawlessss. It must have eucalyptus in it because it smells like it, not overpowering or anything but I feel like it keeps my pores from clogging. I could be crazy but I really feel like it keeps my face clear even when I’m wearing full beat. This primer is worth the money. Get it! One of the few pores minimizing primers that you can wear with a dewy look.

This has been my go-to primer for a long time now. I received a sample of this item from Sephora and immediately went back to purchase it once I ran out. Great for oily-combination skin types with a tea-tree fragrance. This is great for acne-prone skin and I have been using this product for over a year now. Dr.Brandt website is also offering a 40% off at checkout right now with code: WINTER40

Enjoy friends!

As far as blurring primers go- it’s fine but there are better ones on the market at a much better price. It does hide pores but I felt I had to use a lot, it makes makeup stick immediately which makes things hard to blend, and I don’t love the deep color. I would choose the Tarte or Benefit versions over this one.tarte Poreless Mattifying PrimerBenefit Cosmetics POREfect Deal

My go-to primer for everyday wear! I’m obsessed with the pore no more primer because it creates a perfect canvas to apply my makeup. I apply a pea amount onto the tips on my fingers and work the primer into my T-ZONE area which I’m more oily and it’s my problematic area. I tend to breakout and have bigger mores in my T-ZONE area. I love how this primer is matte and looks beautiful on my face. I bought this primer at Ulta for $49 it’s a pricey primer but a little goes a longggg way! All you need in a pea size and this primer will last my at least a year. I apply the primer anytime I wear makeup and even when I’m feeling oily throughout my day! A must try primer 😀

Received this in a set and although it's very tiny you don't need much to see a noticeable difference with this pores no more. I really enjoy the Dr. Brandt line it's honestly one of the better skin care lines that I have used that I personally swear by although the cost of these products is relatively high it's well worth every penny. I used this under my makeup and it does have a tanish color but it was ok on me as I am a tanner so the color blended right in with my tone n it sure how it would work on a fair skinned person but I would recommend purchasing a set at a lower cost this way if you don't like it your not full on wasting 25-45 bucks

I can't say enough good things about this product. My life hasn't been the same since I started using this. I love it with my whole heart. It's incredible for so many reasons. First, it really blurs your skin and magically erases your pores for the day. Second, not only does it keep your makeup in place all day long, it makes your makeup appear untouched. No joke, my skin always looks incredible all day long when I use this primer. Only downside is the price, but to be honest, I would pay just about anything for this primer because it's so amazing. HIGHLY recommend. Dr. Brandt pores no more® pore refiner primer

If I only could have one primer for the rest of my life it would be this one. It literally erases pores like nothing else I've ever tried. It has a slight smell, but nothing too strong. This makes your skin flawless. It's very pricey, but I really recommend this if you suffer with large pores.

[product:dr.-brandt-skincare-pores-no-more-luminizer-primer] The luminosity is so very subtle but it does minimized the pores which I absolutely love. It does feel a bit hydrating and maybe that is why it is called luminizing. I still give 5 stars. I love Dr.Brandt products.

I have huge problem pores. They are worse in the summer months. I have heard lots of people saying this could be a good solution for that.. i have tried MANY others on the market as primers and they just don't do the job right. Anyone have any luck with this, want to be sure before I splurge on this as its pretty steep in price. Thanks!

I have huge pores and have been looking for something that will help decrease them in size or at least cover them. Is this product worth the money and good enough to deal with big pores?
