I try to take the best care of my skin--cleansing, toning and moisturizing daily. However, sometimes my skin's texture isn't where I want it. It gets a little bumpy on my cheeks and it's not smooth. This is when I need to do some exfoliation.

To use, first cleanse your skin to remove any makeup. Next, apply water to your face and then apply Dr. Brandt's PoreDermabrasion™ Pore Perfecting Exfoliator. Rub the exfoliator on your face in circular motions for 1 - 2 minutes, leave the product on for a couple of minutes and then rinse. The product is a very fine exfoliator even smaller than grains of sand. You will feel this exfoliator, it's not the most soothing skin care step, but it definitely works. I have sensitive skin and after using the product over the course of several weeks--I didn't have any problems.
Dr. Brandt Pores No More® pore refiner primer
This primer mattifies shine and minimizes the look of pores. It is designed to act as an invisible barrier to prevent makeup from clogging pores, absorb oil, blur fine lines and imperfections. It retails for $45.
This is a great primer before you apply foundation. To use, begin with a clean and moisturized face. Next, apply Dr. Brandt's Pore No More pore refiner primer to your face. Focusing on the areas where you get oily like the T-zone. The product is a light beige color providing a little bit of coverage--your face looks instantly better. Love that! It also leaves your face velvety smooth with a great smooth base to apply your foundation. Using a primer before you apply foundation extends the wear of your foundation. So if you're going to have a long day or night, a primer is a great way to make sure you're still looking good hours after you apply your makeup. The only thing I didn't like about this product is the scent. It's a light aromatherapy type scent.
