Emu Oil? Anyway, I read this somewhere and would like to know if any of you have heard of this, or have heard of this working. Thanks!

No, I would not try this. For one thing emu oil is very expensive and for another, it's got unique properties that not many other oils have. It will sink in quickly to your skin but as for pore minimization, I highly doubt it.  Massage therapists in the know use emu oil because it has the unique ability to penetrate many layers of derma (skin). For this reason though, you have to be careful what you put in with the EO, if you're using essential oils be careful because they too will be penetrating the skin.

I make soap and lotions so I have a fairly good working knowledge of most oils and their properties. I don't believe ANY oil would minimize pores - what you need is a good cleansing routine!

For a very simple and effective pimple/pore solution, try this:

1) Use a very gentle facial cleanser - Cetaphil is very cheap and mild
2) Use a light moisturizer ALWAYS
3) After washing your face before bed take a cottonball and soak it in benzoyl peroxide and wipe it over your face. Let it dry completely or it might bleach your fabrics.
4) Once every three days or so while washing your face, take some cleanser and add a pinchful or two of baking soda and mash together to make a paste. Apply to your face and gently massage - the baking soda will act as a mild exfoliant and it will make your face feel oh-so-soft.

The benzoyl peroxide/baking soda exfoliant is about as good as it gets for detering pimples. The peroxide really helps to minimize pores. Just don't forget to moisturize!
