Anyone know of any magic remedies for enlarged pores? I hate my nose! I use a good primer, but on the days I’m makeup free, I hate how my skin looks!

Hoping to get some good recommendations, I've got similar skin! I've found the Ordinary AHA and BHA peel to be quite good.

Watching as I have really visible pores on my nose and have used many products over the years.
I am currently using garnier cleanser and pixie glow tonic.

My pores have never been since I started with rosehip oil (poppy austin). I wash with imperial leather then use two or three drops of that. I get compliments on my skin and everything.

What is your skincare regime?

Liz Earle hot polish cleanser followed by pixie glow toner (I put this in a little spray bottle, spray on and wipe off) finish with moisturiser, just started using liz Earle skin repair gel as I love the cleanser so much and so far so good.
Use a loreal clay mask as and when I need too, comes in a pot so you can just dab it on the odd spot if you can't be bothered to do a whole face 😉

Started a new regime....and it's having the pleasant byproduct of reducing my pores!

All FaceTheory: clarifying cleanser (aha/bha)
Moisturiser with niacinamide
Face oil with retinol and vitamin C & E, which I think is the thing that's doing it.

My skin is soooo smooth and soft!! Just hoping it deals with the acne scarring and cystic zits

You want this

It is the absolute nuts. Wear sunscreen after using it.

That toner is great, I've used it too but stopped as my new stuff has it in and thought it might be overkill. But it's FAB and a great price.

Weirdly, I have found that loccitane divine cream in the blue tub seems to have a remarkable effect. I bought a trial set as it is stupidly expensive, so I may never buy a full sized one.

I second niacinimide and zinc for reducing the appearance of large pores: superdrug do one, labelled' revolution', costs around £8, lasts for ages.

I agree with @AnneLovesGilbert although I picked up a couple of bottles today and they've DOUBLED in price!! We need to stop recommending this range 😩

Thanks ladies!
Ok, I’ve looked at the Superdrug stuff-looks good!
Should I buy anything else with it? Cleanser? Toner? Etc. I’m using the ordinary moisturiser at the moment

Pixi glow toner has reduced the size of my pores. I started using it as it was a freebie in the M&S advent calendar and it really has made a huge change to my skin. When I first started using it I got my some nasty large spots appearing but I persevered and it's paid off as my skin is better looking than it has been in years.

300ml and it’s on bogof. I stocked up on my last order. Bargain!

I use the foaming cleanser too OP. Heard people rave about the overnight peel but I haven’t used it.

The nip+fab pads are great too, but pricier.
