Birchbox Breakdown

Of all the beauty minefields out there, visible pores are one of the trickiest to dodge. Foundation alone doesn’t do the trick, which is why we turn to this translucent balm to shrink our pores. We can use it as a primer in the mornings or as a touch-up treatment throughout the day. Perfect t-zone, here we come.

How it Works

The silky, oil-free formula diffuses pores and fine lines for an “airbrushed” finish. It goes on sheer, leaving skin even and smooth. Don’t we all love instant gratification?

How to Use

As a primer, apply a fine layer on clean or moisturized skin, starting from the center of your face and working outwards. Pat to blend. Feel free to use for midday touch-ups too — just dab a pea-size amount over your makeup and blend.

Porefessional is light, and glides on your skin. It's like wearing nothing, but better. The pores disappear and your skin feels smoother, an added benefit.

Everyday Thing

I use this product daily and I really like the consistency and feel of this product. It does well at concealing pores, except for my blackhead prone nose.

Game changer!

I cannot say enough great things about this product. It completely changed how my foundation sat on my skin. I have an issue with my pores being larger than I want and this definitely changed that for me. You wont regret this purchase. I now consider this a must have for my makeup bag.

Great on Sensitive Skin

I have extremely dry, sensitive skin, and a lot of primers tend to irritate my face, but this one doesn't. Its very soft and gentle, and definitely reduces the appearance of pores. I highly recommend this product.

works very well
Purchased

This works very well. My pores are large they were not covered completely but it did help hide them and made skin ready to receive makeup.

On my third tube...

Because of my large pores and oily skin, I use this to matte my face before my powder. I havent found a pore reducer yet that works like this. Be weary of ordering from places like Ebay, imposters are everywhere! Dont save a few bucks and jeopardize the product.

good for pores

Glides on like a dream, and it is good at filling in noticeable pores. However I have oily skin. It doesn't make my skin fully matte. So I have to use a different primer for JUST oil. Overall it's great for pores not for making oily skin matte.

Fantastic product

This is hands down one of my favorite make-up products in my drawer. I use it every day, it's great with foundation or powder or on it's own. I have always had an issue with excessive shine. This really helps keep my skin matted for the day, and I keep it in my purse for easy re-application as needed in the afternoon. Great product. Worth the price.

Might be slightly overrated?

This is a nice product, the smell is really lovely and it does a good job of mattifying my face to (briefly) reduce the appearance of pores.... but after all the hype of beauty bloggers and all the amaaaazing reviews (plus, dropping $30 on the tiny tube), I was definitely expecting a better performance. Maybe it will do better in the cooler months, but under summer conditions, it didn't find that it reduced the appearance of pores for more than a few hours. After 2-3 hrs, even with minimal activity, foundation sank into my pores and it was as if porefessional was never there. The texture is nice (although it stays tacky for a bit longer than I'd like). But honestly, for the price, I think I'll be going back to NYX pore filler.
