Neutrogena (1)Neutrogena so kindly gifted me full size samples of their Pore Refining collection to try out for 7 days (twice a day) and report back on my findings as a part of the #PoreNoMore Challenge. And guess what… I see a difference. I even have photographic evidence to prove it! The large pore scene on my face is very minimal and are isolated to an area on the apples of my cheeks. It’s never been much of something I cared about until some random with very visible pores said, “We both have really large pores.” I know it sounds very shallow, but for the first time in my life I felt like Quinn Morgendorffer of DARIA where she exclaims her pores are, “cute!”

So last week I embarked on the Neutrogena “Pore No More” Challenge. Using only the products provided, twice a day, I cleansed, toned, moisturized, (and sometimes exfoliated) resulting in noticeably brighter skin and “cute” pores. Will I stick with this regimen? Definitely will stick with the toning and moisturizing. My face tends to be t-zone oily, and I found myself blotting that area more often than I liked throughout the week. Therefore the creamy exfoliator, and maybe the cleanser will be swapped out. Other than that, this is one of the few times a facial product specifically designed for the treatment of something actually came through.
