It does reduce pores temporarily but you need to use it every day (or at least every few days) to see a real result.
Can sting a bit if applying over raw skin (such as any areas with acne or rashes) or spots. But the sting only lasts a few seconds.
Absorbs quickly and doesn't make my skin oily, as some other people have said.
Only need to use a tiny amount so will last fairly long. I use it only when my pores are particularly clogged or standing out, so mine has lasted extremely well. No need to apply all over the face, I just use it around my nose and chin where my pores are most pronounced.
Overall, good product, fair price.
