Pore refining products are the latest skincare gimmick. They claim to reduce the size of your pores and refine your complexion. But do they really work? Some of them actually do if your pores aren't that big and you give it a little bit of time. Neutrogena pore refining mask, $169.90 This gel mask is great for frequent use. The cooling effect will make your skin feel good in the summer. Is it pore refining? Yes, but just a little. Clinique instant perfector, $ 165 It gives an immediate matte effect on the skin, and it covers up the pores. A great make-up base. Clinique refining lotion, $220 This is a daily lotion to be used after cleansing your face. It starts working after a couple of weeks and your pores do actually get a little bit smaller, but only long-term use will give good results. Biotherm pore refining exfoliating gel, $190 We're not sure how effective it is in reducing the size of your pores but this is certainly a great facial scrub. The soft texture of the foam and refined grains leave your skin clean and silky. The Body Shop tea tree oil nose pore mask, $99 Although the pore refining effect is not outstanding, this mask is great for the oily T-zone area. Wait until the mask dries and then peel it off. You can actually see some blackheads being pulled out.
