This is unbelievable. I didn’t have high hopes for it as it didn’t sting on application, and somehow I feel that brightening products ought to do that. But I could see a very slight difference after 1 day, and a good difference after a week. Overall my pores look smaller and the pigmentation on my skin is less obvious. Looking forward to what the next few weeks will bring. My only very slight criticism is with the packaging, as it is impossible to recycle a pipette dropper. Could there be a greener way of dispensing this product? Thank you, FaceTheory, for performing what I thought was the impossible!


Soaks into skin quickly and no oily residue. Skin feels much more hydrated and red pigmentation fading after a week of use.

Made skin greasy and caused breakouts

Clear fluid very well absorbed with no noticeable sent. Very hydrating, had no irritation or bad reactions to it. Not sure yet about results because I have been using it only for 2 weeks.

I’m afraid I have broken out badly with this product and have had to stop using it !! I bought two bottles as I have used the ordinary’s niaciamide with zinc for over a year with no reaction , so had big hopes for this product ... sadly stopped using after 7 days of trying to make it work


The packaging and the bottle the serum comes in are great but unfortunately I can't say that I've noticed any difference in my skin. Pores are as they were before daily use 4 weeks ago.

Hi Kathryn Sorry it didn't work for you. Please contact us for a refund :) Jamie


Feels lovely when applied, have been using a couple of weeks and my pores don't seem as obvious.

Emma Matthews

Liquid very runny not impressed with this range at all!

Hi Emma Sorry you were disappointed with this. The porebright isn't meant to be thick - it keeps it easy to apply. We've processed a refund for you. Jamie

It doesn't break me out. Suitable to be layered underneath Tretinoin.

Andreea Tudor

My skin feels lighter and smoother. No more breakouts or blackheads

Michaela Slade

This stuff is amazing, a miracle in a bottle, I have NEVER been able to go foundation free, I can now. I have NEVER not had hormonal breakouts, well, let me tell you I didn't even have to wear foundation during my cycle, my skin FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER is blemish free! This feels like silk to put on too. After 25 years of blemished skin and trying 100's of products; this is it! Thank you Face theory!



I love the pipette glass bottle it's easy to use. Light fluid, great spreadability and with a few drops no tackiness and will last a while. Skin less oily and smaller pores in 1 week. I find it soothes my skin leaving it softer, smoother, clearer and brighter. Used during heatwave in July and August, NO breakouts skin still clear. Little to no blackheads and dark spots (PIH) has reduced a lot, this is the best serum I've used and my favourite.


Does EXACTLY what is says. This stuff is really good. I’ve been using it day and night for just over one week and my skin is looking a lot more even and bright. I still have a long way to go but I can see this stuff really works. There’s no strong scent either- well nothing perfumey anyways. So far so good.

Calum Morris

great serum I notice reduced redness of spots, brightening effect and overall health of my skin. Lasts a long time too, great product!

Jolene Mc Laughlin

Excellent product! Has cleared up several dry patches on my combination skin, and helped with appearance of pores. Wouldn't be without it now.


Have not been using it long enough to see a visible difference on my pigmentation from acne but the texture is light and easily absorbed. My face feels hydrated after use.


After two weeks my rosacea is almost gone. I love all the Facetheory products.

Lorraine Higgins


I really like this product. Clears and tightens my pores . Feels really nice

Caroline Waterman

I've only been using this for a couple of weeks, twice day and l can see a difference in my skin tone. The serum has evened it out and taken away the redness.

Helen Evans

This has a lovely texture and sinks straight in but I've seen no impact on my enlarged pores at all.

Janet Bolsover

Not seen any diference in pore size as yet but have only been using a week but found it to be really good when worn under makeup

Karen Hughes

No difference what so ever after using this product


It will sting after exfoliating. But other than that a good product.


I've been using this product for around 2-3 weeks now and I'm very impressed. I have normal/dry, dehydrated skin as well as redness and sensitivity. I think the redness is a result of terrible acne throughout my teens and twenties. I have large pores across my nose and cheeks and sun damage on my cheeks and forehead. Since I starting using the Porebright Serum, my skin looks brighter and clearer and my pores seem diminished and less noticeable. I still have redness but I also have a radiance that wasn't there before. I use 4 drops morning and evening and I suspect this will become my HG product from facetheory.


I noticed a difference after using this serum. My pores were less visible and skin felt visibly clearer. Instant results after first usage.
