"Pores ‘snap back’ into shape." Say what?? Sign me up! That was my first thought when I read Clinique's ad. I ordered a deluxe sample through Sephora. Now, I have to be completely honest, I used this more like a primer (only putting it on in the morning). I find that the ingredients are similar in both. It goes on smoothly and it really does give your face a velvety texture. It also helps absorb oil throughout the day. I can't say it made my pores "snap back into shape" but it did give my skin a more even look without any color. The price is a little hefty at $39.50 but I would imagine a 1oz. bottle would last 6 months or more.
Clinique is owned by Estee Lauder and are known to be "Allergy Tested, 100% Fragrance Free." And they aren't joking. They test each product 12 times on 600 people. If only one person has a reaction, they reformulate the product. So, if you have sensitive skin, you might want to try Clinique.
