“I Reviewed Dr. Brandt's Pore Refiner Primer and It's Like Photoshop in a Bottle”

We’ve all had blemishes and spots that have needed assistance at one time or another. From break-outs to uneven skin tone and large pores, primers have been known to help address these issues head-on. While it’s important to remember that texture on our skin is normal (and so are pores) each person has their own idea of how they want their skin to look, and that's totally okay. Primers come in all formulas and textures, yet sometimes can be hard to incorporate into your daily makeup routine if the products simply don’t align.

I tested Dr. Brandt Skincare's Pores No More Pore Refiner Primer and after a few uses, I really can’t live without it.


How to Apply: A few different ways

This primer can be applied a few different ways each day in your beauty routine. After you’ve cleaned your skin and moisturized, apply small amounts of primer with clean fingers to the areas you want to give extra attention to or apply a thin layer all over the face. You can wear the primer alone or before you apply your foundation. If you tend to get shiny through the day, apply some primer on top of your makeup to help control shine and excess oil residue. 


The Results: Immediately noticed a difference

I loved every part of using this primer and the immediate results it gave me.

Testing Insight:
"The primer feels incredibly smooth and a bit cooling when applied to the skin and doesn’t feel heavy or cakey."

Seeing as it has a slight tint when it comes out of the tube, it does apply clear and doesn’t interfere with the color of your skin, making it suitable for all skin tones. It felt so lightweight and blended well with the various foundations I tried it with.

Testing Insight:
"I noticed a major difference in the oil production of my skin throughout the day. My skin looked smooth and velvety all day, and I did not need to touch up my makeup."


My pores were minimized to the point where I barely saw them under my makeup.

The Value: Expensive but fair

At a price of $45 and the size of the tube, along with the results this product gives, the price and value are absolutely fair for this primer. A small amount of primer goes a long way, which in return will help the tube last quite a while, making it a worthy investment.
