Perricone MD Cosmeceuticals Intensive Pore Minimizer
The promise: "Designed to effectively reduce the appearance of enlarged pores. ... The result is skin that appears firmer, less oily, less shiny and remains fresh and smooth throughout the day."
The basics: A lightly scented liquid that smooths nicely over the face.
Details: $55, 4 ounces, Sephora, sephora.com; perriconemd.com
Brenda says: After a few days, pores appeared a bit smaller, skin was smooth. Weird fragrance smelled like a combination of antiseptic and perfume.
Ellen says: Felt good going on, but I saw no change in my skin whatsoever. The smell didn't bother me. Our advice: Skip it. Not worth the steep price.
