    Queen Helene's Mint Julep Mask worked to reduce the pores on my nose and cheeks.

    Agree with the mint julep mask. Products that contain salycylic acid would also help.

    yep, salicylic acid is good for pores, i'm using joey new york 'pure pores' (0.5% salicylic acid, i think they do a 1% one too called 'chin breakout relief'), you put it on, leave to dry, then rub your skin gently, its astounding how much dead skin/crap comes out of your pores. i'm so glad i got this stuff, my pores were huge, they're not quite as small as i'd like but i've seen much improvement from this stuff. also i've started using a bha and aha scrub from murad which is for all skin types so quite gentle but very effective. both of these products have transformed my skin in the last 2 weeks from looking dull, greasy and large-pored to a much more even skin-tone.

    only down-side is they were fairly expensive but i reckon when it comes to your skin you should get the best you can afford! plus ebay's broken a lot of those barriers i reckon these days.

    good luck guys

    I have used Mint Julep Mask.. i noticed that it works for drying out blemishes and not reducing the pores..

    I heard about JOey NY.. i will chk it out and see if I can give it a try.

    I bleached my facial hair, and kinda notice some difference, but its not gonna last.

    I also read about Clinique Pore MInimizer, tried it?

    The pore minimizer is great... I have the "instant" one (there's two versions) and it makes your skin looks absolutely poreless. A little goes a long way so the $16 price point really isn't that bad. I've had mine for about a year and am only now beginning to need a new one. I haven't noticed any clogged pores because of this stuff. I use it on either side of my nose and the cheek area right there next to it. It doesn't help them look any better when it's washed off, but as long as I'm wearing it, it looks like I have no pores. They also have one that is supposed to reduce the size of your pores over time; I couldn't wait that long so I haven't tried it. I needed instant gratification! This stuff is addicitive.

    Green cream helped to reduce my pore size dramatically. You must be patient with retinols however, it took about 2-3 months.
