What are the usage instructions for this product?? The product info lacks information... Pretty poor on Kiehl's part. I love the products I've tried and would love to try this if I knew how!
A shopper on Apr 27, 2014
Best Answer: The add from which I ordered my "blur" showed a visual of the moisturiser, the BB cream to be followed by the "blur". I have had good results following these instructions. I wondered as did others, why no more instruction was included with this product.

I am confused. I use the BB Tone corrector- as a bb and foundation. This cream goes over the corrector? Won't it ruin the make up coverage?
Thanks:)

A shopper on Apr 27, 2014
Best Answer: I use it over liquid/cream foundations, and under powder/mineral foundations. It won't ruin your make-up.

I loved the primer at first, but now when I go to use it, liquid comes out before the cream. Has anyone else had this experience? Is there a way of eliminating that problem?
Denise D on Jul 1, 2015
Best Answer: That was one of my big problems. I just shook the tube as much as possible until I thought it was well mixed.

Micro blur keeps exuding water whenever its oozed from the tip. Why?
Leo Z on Sep 19, 2014
Best Answer: I can't answer why, but I started shaking mine vigorously before each use, and that helped with that issue as well as application.

Does micro-blur go under your daily moisturizer or used by itself?
A shopper on May 14, 2014
Best Answer: I had a chat directly with kiehls and they told me to use it after moisturizer. At night if you use an oil the order would be; Toner, serum, Moisturizer, Micro-Blur then Oil.

Does one use this in lieu of the Powerful Line-reducing Concentrate and Midnight Recovery Concentrate ? Which regimen is more appropriate for 50-60 year old skin?
A shopper on Apr 27, 2014
Best Answer: This is what I have found works for my 60 year old skin. Daytime-on a clean face I apply the powerful line-reducing concentrate, let it dry and follow it up with my moisturizer and cap it off with the micro-blur. If I am going out I then apply my foundation. I use the midnight recovery concentrate at night on a clean face. I agree with everyone, I would like to see more instructions included with this product!

How much of this do ya'll use? A quarter size? Does this control your oil?
Madiha B on May 23, 2014
Best Answer: I use the amount that would equal the size of a #2 pencil eraser.
I live in FL where it is extremely hot and humid. This controls my oil far better than another product I have used, but not 100% oil free.
I have combo skin, am fair and in my 40's.

I have sensitive skin, with rosacia and slight acne. Is this product ok to use?
A shopper on May 13, 2014
Best Answer: I don't have rosacia, however most serums make me break out. And I have a problem with some moisturizers as well. This has not given me any problems with breakouts, so I would think this would be ok for you.

I just bought the Micro-Blur and I'm not sure about the application. I don't use any foundation and just apply the kiehls BB cream After the moisturizer. Do I apply the micro Blur before or after the BB cream? Thanks for your help!!
Steffi on Feb 10, 2015
Best Answer: I apply the Micro-Blur after moisturizer or BB cream if I'm not wearing real foundation. If I am wearing foundation: Cream/liquid foundation, apply Micro-Blur after foundation. If I am wearing a mineral/powder foundation, I apply the Micro-Blur before the foundation.

Does this have dimethicone or a silicon in it?
Jennifer M on May 20, 2014
Best Answer: I’m not sure about the first ingredient but I’m 90% sure it doesn’t contain silicone. It has a very smooth, salmon-tinted consistency, that’s a bit thicker than similar products such as Benefit’s Porefessional or Smashbox Photofinish primer, both of which I believe have silicone.

I understand this is to be used OVER BB cream. But what about foundation? Over or under?
A shopper on May 11, 2014
Best Answer: Use as the final treatment step in your moisturizing regimen. Foundation would go ontop of the micro blur. Allow the moisturizers and micro blur time to dry before applying makeup.

I can not tell that I have applied the product on my skin tone. I couldn't say it is invisible to all skin tones as I have only tried it on my light olive skin.

do I need to use a moisturizer with this product?
A shopper on Sep 13, 2016
Best Answer: My skin always gets a little dry the day after I use it. I'd recommend an oil-free moisturizer, especially if you have sensitive skin, as the exfoliation will temporarily make skin more susceptible to acne. This product is rather effective and I would be gentle to your skin while using it.

I read about this product, Micro-blur Skin Perfector, in an email from Nordstrom. I do wear makeup-a foundation.
Would it be applied on top of my moisturizer?
Sue H on Nov 12, 2015
Best Answer: Hi Sue,
I've been using this product for a couple of years now and have found it works best for me by applying on top of my moisturizer. Try it like this and then if you don't get the desired results you are looking for maybe try putting it on before your moisturizer and see if the results are more satisfying.
Hope this helps.

Micro-Blur Skin Perfector

Precision Lifting & Pore-Tightening Concentrate
Precision Lifting & Pore-Tightening Concentrate
Best Answer: Micro blur is like a pore filler, like benefit's porefessional...but way better in my opinion. it is a make up primer that can be worn alone or under make up. It says it helps skin over time, but mostly it is to fill the pores to give the a matte and filled in blur appearance. The other is a serum that is supposed to actually help pores get smaller (though most experts say you can't really do much about this other than...) by exfoliation and hydration.

Why do the products in the micro blur separate? Only liquid/water comes out first even after shaking.

Why it separates (water/alcohol and cream)????
and it has this alcohol smell???
Got it as a gift and not sure if it's good for my skin🙄
Bkondie on Mar 16, 2017
Best Answer: The separation is a major nuisance and I have stopped using this on a couple of occasions for that reason, but haven't found any product I like better than Micro-Blur. It did not always separate like this, so seems to be a re formulation issue. Shake it well before it use.

The last step means after uv cream???
A shopper on Dec 2, 2016
Best Answer: Until I recently read on website to put on as last step, I've always put micro blur on as first step. It absorbs instantly and makes my skin feel like silk. I'm trying it as last thing now but tend to prefer it on first. It makes sense to put it on after uv. Also my daughter in her 30's, loves how micro blur helps her acne and makes pores smaller.

Sometimes when I wear this I've found that it gets crumbly and falls off. Has that happened to anyone else? Any ideas as to how to prevent this?
A shopper on Dec 18, 2015
Best Answer: The same happened with mine. How old is your product ? It should be smooth and not gooey. If it is, return it for a replacement. They say the self life is a year but I find it less. When you shake it, it should should like lotion not a bucket of rocks. They we very good with their satisfaction guarantee. They will refund or replace anything you are unhappy with. I think the product your using may have just expired.
