I hate having visible pores. I think I possibly dislike it more than having scars from old spots. So when I got a sample of Murad T Zone Pore Refining Gel, I was looking forward to trying it out.
This stuff ain’t cheap. It retails around £40-50 per 50ml. For products that expensive, I do tend to be a little harsher on them than cheaper versions because I believe things should work really well if you’re going to spend that much on a product!
You use this by applying a thin layer on your skin after cleansing and toning.
It’s supposed to gently exfoliate away dead skin and clear your pores to reveal fresh, bright skin. It removes excess oil from you t-zone to keep it shine free.
What’s inside it?
- Retinol – Improves skin texture, tone and radiance
- Glycolic and Salicylic Acids – Gently exfoliate to help clear pores and skin perfections
- Pomegranate Extract – Neutralises and protects against free radical damage
On the first application of this, I was underwhelmed.
My skin looked the same but just seemed shinier. I’m not sure if this would be better suited to oily skin as I have rather dry skin. I was expecting to see my pores appear at least slightly smaller.
After using it for a few days, I still didn’t see a difference and just gave up. I know you have to wait a long time for skincare to start to work, but if I don’t start to see a slight difference after a week, it’s a dud for me.
I was hoping I would notice at least something. But no. Nothing at all. I’ll carry on using this until it’s finished to see if anything else happens and I’ll post I WAS WRONG if I change my mind. But.. meh.
I’d be so mad if I spent so much on this product. It’s wank.
Have you eve tried Murad T Zone Pore Refining Gel?
