Benefit The POREfessional

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.

I have been using this for a couple of years. In the summer I use it all over and in the winter I focus on my tzone. No creasing and it controls oil throughout the day.

Pores Disappear!

Does what its meant to do - erases pores and makes a perfect silky smooth base for makeup! Gives you that flawless look that everyone wants. My new go-to primer- and I've tried many!

The only pore minimizer that works

If I had a dollar for every pore minimizer I've tried in the past couple years, well I'd have probably about 10 dollars. That's not a lot of money, but it is a fair amount of pore minimizers.
Until I tried Benefit Porefessional, I was beginning to believe no one really made one that worked. This stuff is fairly amazing. It's sad that a product just doing what it clams to is amazing, but let's face it, it kind of is. A little goes a long way too, so that's nice.
After applying, I wait a few minutes for it to set before applying my makeup.

Amazing!!

I have huge pores that nothing seemed to fix, until I received a sample of Benefit's Porefessional. This stuff really works. This primer magically erases your pores and even blurs some imperfections so it very well could be worn on its own if you don't need a lot of coverage but want to do something about your pores. I have a ginormous pore (literally a crater) on the side of my head that you could see from a mile away. With one swipe of this product it's virtually invisible. I'll definitely be repurchasing!!

Great!

Feels silky smooth on skin. Minimizes size of pores and gives a nice even pigment to face. Does not have a strong smell like other primers I've used

POREfessional
Purchased

I have tried a lot of primers because I have oily skin and large pores. I was hoping this one would really fill in my pores, since that's what it's advertised to do. I was slightly disappointed because I don't really see a difference in my pores when I use it. It still works well as a primer for oily skin before applying makeup, but overall I don't think it's any better than any other primer I've used.

Nice for texture but not for pores

I don't know what all the fuss is about, personally. For me, this works well as a primer; it gives my makeup a nice smooth texture to stick to. However, I don't see a noticeable difference in the appearance of my pores. I got this as a sample, but I don't think I'd spend the money on the full size.

One of the best!

POREfessional is one of my favorite primers. I love the matte finish it has, and it really absorbs oils throughout the day. I like to mix it with my moisturizer in the mornings before I put on makeup. It seriously holds up all day, even through a workout. This being said, it doesn't seem to clog pores, or not mine at least. I have pretty sensitive skin, so other products cause breakouts the very next day. I highly recommend this primer for anyone with combination/oily skin.

Great Primer

Not only does this help keep my makeup on, but it really helps to smooth out my skin. It glides on and I love it.

I don't know why this is rated so high. It doesn't really refine pores and it rubs off very easily. It does have a great fresh scent and makes my face soft.
