    Dear shehnaz2011,
    Any time you use a new moisturizer, you want to use it daily for at least a month, which is the length of time for your skin to turn-over from the bottom layer to the top. If you don't see a difference, or don't like the product, move on to the next one. I like Aveeno Positively Radiant and Eucerin Redness Relief as well. For the large pores, try a clay mask.
    Hope this helps.

    I agree with Dr. Buchness and I also think that the best moisturizer is the one that really makes your skin glow. Some moisturizers are sticky and greasy but leaves the skin dry after a while.
