I happened upon this product by accident -- I tried it while staying at a friend's house. That was more than 5 years ago, and though I sometimes "experiment" with other cleansers, I make sure I always have a tube of Neutrogena Pore Refining Cleanser in my bathroom.
My skin is sensitive and somewhat dry, yet surprisingly, this cleanser leaves my skin feeling smooth and supple, not dry, tight or flaky. Also, one tube lasts an amazingly long time -- a small amount of product is all you need.
Be sure to apply moisturizer afterwards for optimal results; use one with SPF 15 or higher if going outside. I prefer Neutrogena's Pore Refining Cream or Olay Complete.

I had high hopes for this product, thinking that it would be ideal in summertime, especially after I worked out in the gym for a long time. However, I really was not impressed; in fact, after using this product I started getting terrible breakouts on my chin, which I have no gotten...well, ever. It may have been my hormones or other reasons, but I kind of place blame on this product. It didn't help clear it up...in fact, I had to go to a Dermatologist to get it clear. It might work for some, but for me it wasn't the best. Plus, I could never use this when I had eye make up on (which is all the time), therefore it had limited use.

          Comments about Neutrogena Pore Refining Cleanser, 6.7 fl oz:

          I used this product for probably 10 years faithfully and loved it. Then it disappeared for a few years. Neutrogena recently brought it back but it is nowhere near the same product. The original product had a good amount of gentle scrubby beads in it. This new version hardly feels any different than a cream cleanser. It isn't the same as the original at all except for the scent. Really disappointed. I guess they figured by pulling it for a few years that loyal users wouldn't notice the difference when it came back, but this product does not work like it used to.

            Comments about Neutrogena Pore Refining Cleanser, 6.7 fl oz:

            I switched to this product after using a famous MLM brand that touted pore refinement. In fact, the other brand caused my pores to be more pronounced. After using Neutrogena Pore Refining Cleanser for several months, I started noticing a more balanced, smooth complexion, and my pores started to shrink! The longer I used it, the better my skin looked and felt. For some reason it was off the market for a while, much to my dismay, and I had to use a much more expensive brand to get similar results. I am so happy to see this product available again!!! It might be hard to find in stores because it was off the market for a while, but I expect that it's popularity will grow again. No cons for me so far.

              Cleanses well, but the fragance is unappealing. If it gets in your mouth when rinsing, yuck!

                This is the only cleanser I've found that has both alpha and beta hydroxy. My dermatologist recommended both alpha and beta. i swear by this cleanser. Have been using it for years.

                  the pore minimizer cleanser actually works and keeps my pores small and face for the most part less oily.

                    I wash my face in the shower with this every day. Nothing clears my skin faster... keeps it smoother. YES keep it OUT of your eyes!!! If you don't it will sting like MAD. BUT - it's worth every precaution when using it for the RESULTS> I buy 7 at a time and this lasts me about 1 year. Can't live without the stuff so I'll be on planet earth only as long as this product is. Not kidding!

                    This was ok, clean feeling, but didn't help or prevent breakouts.
                    Did dry my face out some, but not as bad as some cleansers. I wish it was more of a scrub than cleanser. It does have very fine micro beads and exfoliating ingredients, but i like more intense exfoliating, like what you get from apricot scrubs.
