This forum saved my face. I have always used african black soap and honey off/on for years, while trying other products (including pharmaceutical grade) to try to get what's "right". By simply adding baking soda to my honey once a week as a scrub (thanks, Spastica), and adding the oat flour/cornmeal/sea salt scrub to my routine once a week, using raw honey as a mask once a week, and using jojoba oil (if super dry, I use unrefined shea over night) as a daily moisturizer, I have the tiniest pores that used to be so much larger! I can't say it's one product over another, but know that this system is really working for me and CHEEEAAAP. Black soap keeps the white heads in check, but the black heads and large pores were another issue (and sensitive skin). I only tone w/ diluted organic acv on the days that I use bs in my honey as a scrub.
Anyway, you've come to the right place for help, because MDC is my "home away from home".
