Open pores

Tips please for the best way to banish these from my (80s word) "t-zone"?

I do an adaptation of the oil cleansing method - is this making them worse? But it makes my skin so soft...
Cold water rinse?
Witch hazel?
Expensive product? (suspect this)

I don't think you can banish, only minimize.

Some people rate Clinque pore reducing stuff (I didn't get good results)

I like mineral foundation rather than liquid, that suits me and my facial craters.

Also No 7 matifying cream is good for disguising them

Oil cleansing made mine worse.

Agree about the matifying cream.

Have to say, I really like the Clinique pore perfect instant corrector (or something like that!) - tiny tube of stuff you put on, and it just makes them less visible. Don't really rate the rest of the range though. I think Benefit do something similar - the Dr Feelgood, is it?
