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 noticed most people who like this product are like me, over 40 and with combination skin. After a few weeks of use, my skin looked noticeably smoother, especially the drier areas such as cheeks, eyes, neck. It isn't easy to rinse off, so it is best to use it in the shower or bath. Dampen skin first and massage gently over face and neck. I leave it on for about a minute before rinsing. It has made only a small difference to my pores, but the improvement overall in texture and fine lines is enough to keep me buying this product.

        Comments about Neutrogena Pore Refining Cleanser, 6.7 fl oz:

        i bought this product because i have huge pores and i am looking for something to smooth my skin.
        i use it once a day, in the morning, since its not so great to remove makeup and its gentle enough to use daily.
        it doesnt foam at all so if you like foaming products this isnt for you.
        I got it from a target store but they ran out of the toner (i think)
        overall its great and did make my pores appear smaller and smooth my skin,

            Comments about Neutrogena Pore Refining Cleanser, 6.7 fl oz:

            I have tried almost every product out there from Neutrogena, and I generally love their products. For years I have used the anti-wrinkle/blemish face wash and the pore refining toner. The stores stopped carrying my face wash so I tried this, and was very disappointed. Everyone's skin is different and this may work for some, but I hardly wear any makeup to work and it didn't take any of it off. Also, I know you should be careful with facewash around your eyes, but my other stuff was great at taking off mascara and never bothered my eyes, and if this product got anywhere close it felt like my eyeballs were on fire! Again I swear by Neutro products, but I would give this negative stars if I could. :(

              This works great for me. I use it in the shower. I use it on my face down to my chest and leave it on for a minute before rinsing. I'm 57 and get compliments all the time.

                    I belong to Oily skin types and have visible pores on cheeks. After I apply the cleanser twice daily, I haven't seen any improvement it has done to my skin! I wouldn't recommend this product to those who have large pores.

                      At age 53 I still have huge, oily pores. This line was recommended by an aesthician. Within 2 days there was a noticible difference in my skin. I use the Pore Refing Cleanser and Toner morning and evening and I look years younger!!
