Murad Vitalic T-Zone Pore Refining Gel is designed to remove pore-clogging impurities and gently exfoliate to remove dull, dry skin cells, keeping pores clear and normalising oil production. It's priced at £39.50 for a 50ml bottle.
The packaging of this is nice, it looks smart and professional and it very practical and convenient. It has a press top dispenser on the top which assures you get just the right amount out, which is important with this product because it's very easy to use too much.
The gel is very runny and when I first used it I was using a little sample sized bottle which didn't have the dispenser on, and I always found it came out of the bottle so quickly that I ended up with way too much and it was very wasteful. The dispenser is much better as you get a controlled amount, though it's still easy to waste it as it very easily slips through the fingers!
A little goes a really long way with this gel, you really only need a tiny amount to cover a relatively large area. I use it on my t-zone as this is where I have most problems with oily skin and clogged pores. Assuming I got the right amount out of the bottle it sinks in pretty quickly, but if I have even the tiniest bit too much it doesn't want to sink in at all and I have to spread it over other areas of my face and keep massaging it just to get it to sink in.
Once it has fully sunk in, my skin feels smoother and has a kind of tight feel to it, but it's not a dry, tight feeling, just like it's pulling my pores tighter, and it feels good. I feel like this really does help to control oil and keep my pores clearer, and my skin looks a lot better for it. After using it for a couple of weeks I could see a marked improvement in the skin in my t-zone area, and that's why I ended up buying the full sized bottle after I'd used up my sample. It keeps my pores clearer, my skin looks brighter, and I seem to be getting less spots too.
Yes, I would definitely recommend this to anyone who suffers from an oil t-zone and clogged pores. It's really helped my skin and I'll continue using it for a long time.
