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 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 use the Pore Refining Exfoliating Cleanser in the morning and before bed, followed by the Pore Refining Toner, and I also apply it to my ears to prevent ear acne breakouts. I apply the Healthy Skin Face Lotion, lightly, after Toner dries. My face always feels good after I use these products, especially when I have had makeup on my face. I am confident that the Cleanser removes all traces of makeup from my pores.
        I use the Clear Pore Cleanser/Mask as a Mask, once per week for an extra deep pore cleaning. I hesitate to use it any more than that since I'm not sure if it will dry out my face, or not, and I don't want to find out.

                  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.
