Routine Steaple

Love that it's: “Long lasting, favorite makeup primer”

I'm obsessed to say the least. I've been in a wonderfully committed relationship with this primer for years and have no intention of that ever changing, haha. I have very oily skin along my T-Zone but very dry skin on the bridge of my nose and along my jaw and hairline. This is the only product that works for both types of issues on my face, meaning it doesn't make my skin dryer or more oily. Realistically I've yet to find anything to battle the mid day oily sadness that takes over my Picasso painting on my face but this product has helped MINIMIZE it. Does it make me look flawless? No. I have problem skin from acne over the years, so I don't expect anything to do the impossible. But this product does a wonderful job at helping! I LOVE it.

Flawless start to the day

Location: Cambridge

I've been using porefessional for years now! It smooths and matts my skin leaving it looking fresh and flawless. It's good enough to wear alone with just a little blush (which is what I normally do) but it's also a great base for putting on a full face of make up. The product goes on really smoothly and spreads evenly - super easy!

Location: Ohio
Eyes: Blue

Received a sample size in my monthly ipsy bag....i LIVE it! First tiny spot i applied i noticed a huge difference. The product is tinted, light and feels like nothing is on. I can wear it alone with no makeup on or under my foundation.

Filter for Your Face

Location: North Carolina
Eyes: Brown
Skin tone: Medium
Love that it's: “Mattifying, Pore Minimizing, Smooth”

I used this product coupled with the POREfessional Matte Rescue and I love the results. I have combination skin but it is usually oily, so I have tried various "oil control" products to combat my skin type usually only to end up with a dry and flaky face. This product both controls oil and keeps my face smooth and matte without drying out my skin! It's like a filter for your face-- your skin, but better. My pores are undetectable with the use of this product! I love that most of the products from Benefit Cosmetics come in a mini size for touch ups on the go!

Not worth the money unfortunately

Barbara Pires
Location: Portugal
Eyes: Hazel
Skin tone: Light

I was super excited to try this primer, i've been hearing some incredible reviews so i decided to give it a try! So i bought Porefessional... The night i used it, the only thing i noticed is that it was incredibly smooth, but it didn't do what it promised... to minimize pores. The next day i had the worse breakout and extremely sensitive skin ever, the clinique foundation that i was using wasn't the problem because i've been using it and it was the best by far. And not only did i breakout but a friend of mine that also bought the product and wore it that night had breakout too. The only pro is that it is super smooth to apply.

I can not praise this product enough!!! I have really oily skin and I have struggled to find a good primer to help minimise my pores and fix my makeup in place all day!! Until now!!!! It is amazinggg!!!!! Highly recommend it! My makeup no longer slips off my face! It's as good as when first applied! Fantastic!!!

Not as good as I had hoped

Location: South Wales

I wouldn't suggest using this as a primer on its own. It didn't do much to my skin, and it kinda dried out my T-Zone. It dried out really fast, and was hard to put on my face. I don't know if this was because I had a faulty one, but I was very disappointed especially for the price I paid for it.

not a great primer on its own

Location: London

This product reduced my pores and made my skin feel incredible! However alone I don't think it improved the longevity of my makeup, as a dancer I use another primer on top of it to do this.

Worth Every Penny

Location: Chicago
Eyes: Brown
Skin tone: Light
Love that it's: “True to its claims”

I was skeptical about purchasing this just because of the price tag. But I'm so glad I did! It does EXACTLY what it claims and feels sooo soft on your skin. Minuscule-nonexistent pores and it lasts a long time

Finally found!

I'm a guy and I've been looking for something that will control my pores, especially on my nose and the stuff works amazing. A highly recommended buy.

A miracle!

Location: USA
Eyes: Hazel
Skin tone: Light
Love that it's: “tinted and sets really quickly”

This worked miracles for me! I have a small scar that looks like a pore on my face, and this filled it in and made it unnoticeable. I love it so much and would totally recommend this great product.

This product is just flawless! I usually don't wear...

Location: Dublin, Ireland
Eyes: Blue
Skin tone: Fair

This product is just flawless! I usually don't wear foundation in the summer or moving into autumn so this is the perfect light weight primer which i just wear all day everyday. It does exactly what its supposed to do, minimise pores,smooths out the skin and a little bit goes a long way. Its just perfect! I recommend this to the highest I'm definitely buying another tube of this when I run out!

Will buy this again for sure.

Location: Tyne & Wear
Eyes: Gray

Love that it's: “perfect”

This is the best pore product I have bought. Amazing! excellent!

will definitely be buying this product again

Location: Melbourne VIC, Australia
Eyes: Brown
Skin tone: Olive
Love that it's: “perfect, amazing, awesome purchase, would buy again, impressed”

I just received a big order I made a few weeks ago and I was so excited to finally be able to try this! It's the benefit product ive heard the most about(all good reviews) so I ordered it to try it out myself and i definitely wasnt disappointed!!!!! I expected it to be a creamy/white kind of colour but it was tinted and actually looked like a mousturiser which I wasnt expecting but i loved!! You only need to use a TINY bit and it manages to spread so far. It covered all my pores and imperfections so well that it actually shocked me, I expected it to work but not so flawlessly. I think even if pores werent that big of an issue for you this would still be a great investment. I will definitely be purchasing some more as soon as I run out :)

Amazing value for money

Location: London, UK
Eyes: Blue
Skin tone: Light

This product is just the best, I've been using it for around a year now and I will never change to any other primer. Makes your skin feel so silky and smooth, which for someone who has multiple textures on their skin like me this is GOLD!!! The size of this is amazing, it's double the size of the regular one and it's only a bit more expensive, well worth the extra money as it will last you ages!

Best primer I have used

Location: Vancouver, BC, Canada
Eyes: Brown
Skin tone: Medium
Love that it's: “simple”

I have tried many many primers and Porefessional is the best. I use a 10 x magnification mirror, so I can see pretty clearly what is going on. Pores disappear, most days I don't even bother with foundation. I'm waiting patiently for the larger size to come back in, this is one product I don't want to be without.

Silky , reduces the size of pores

Location: England, UK
Skin tone: Light
Love that it's: “silky, mattifys”

This is such a good product, I'm annoyed that I didn't see this one, this compared to the 22ml is double in size and only £4 more!

Your face will look golden

Location: Seattle, WA, USA
Eyes: Hazel
Skin tone: Medium
Love that it's: “made by benefit”

This product is great it helps you get a Barbie feel to it you have no harsh lines and guide you face a flawless feel. It does feel weird at first but once you get used to it is just a base to your foundation and gives off a natural feel to the look. Great product love it don't get rid of it

Excellent idea!

Location: Madrid, Spain
Eyes: Green
Skin tone: Fair
Love that it's: “practical, should be something permanent, never ever discontinue this, a must”

I bought this a few months ago (i. e. last autumn), so it comes as a big surprise for me to see this here in your website about four months later. I think it would be idle for me to write about how good its formula is, how much it can do to conceal pores, how silky smooth the skin feels with it on, how we can use it under HFOW foundation, either solo or mixing it with That Gal, or even mixing it with HFOW itself, why not?, and with Boi-ing, for an improvised foundation; all of us who use this know about it, it is our reason for using it so often, why we like it so much. This bigger size is an excellent idea; since there's more amount of the product, now, it takes longer for us to restock once our previous tube of Porefessional is finished, and that is always something to appreciate. Personally speaking, I think this is a personal idea, since this is one of the products I use most, together with That Gal, and seeing it in this size reduces the purchasing frequency very considerably. If only you did the same thing with That Gal... I'd be most grateful, really. Very good idea, Benefit. Keep up the good work!
