Pore Minimizer Refining Serum

I'm back!!

Sorry I know I've been a rubbish blogger recently, everything has just been a bit manic. It was my birthday, then my niece's, my mums, my stepdaughter's this weekend just gone and its also my twin sister's Hen Do this coming Saturday and her wedding is on 4th September. So as you can see, lots on!!

Anyway wanted to get a quick post up, of a recent impulse buy from Clinique.


Ok so this claims to:

"immediately and overtime minimises the appearance of enlarged pores due to excess serum production or from aging and the breakdown in collagen lattice"

Which is quite a bold claim - and I'm not delusional, I firmly believe that you can't alter the size of your pores but I was hoping that this may just help with keeping my pores clear etc and improve their overall appearance.

Its semi-transparent and I have to say - its looks sort of like silicon, which is a bit weird.
I've been using this every morning and night for about a month.

I don’t know if I can say that I’ve really seen any difference. Around my nose does look generally better, however I think that’s more down to my improved daily routine (what I really mean is I now have a daily routine) rather than just this one product. It hasn’t blocked my pores or caused any breakouts, which is a definite plus point but for £16.99 I just don’t see any truly positive results.


Overall – Just not that impressed and won’t be repurchasing!


I need to accept that fact, that I’m just not going to be able to get rid of my pores!

Try splashing your face with very cold water before applying moisturiser/makeup... it shrinks your pores (temporarily!)

I am always hopeful with Clinique products because they claim to do such great things, but they rarely live up to the claim.

I use Dermalogica Clearing Mattifier every morning before applying my makeup and I find it really minimizes my pores (temporarily). Just a suggestion :)

Thanks for the review!

Hi, new follower here!

I bought this product with high hopes. At first I noticed a difference and was super excited and even blogged about it but then I don't what happened. I was so disapointed.

Hm... have you tried Estee Lauder's Idealist? Similar idea.

@Cafe Bellini - I haven't yet. I've heard good things but the price is putting me off. If I can't find a cheaper alternative, I may have to give in
