Is this considered skincare or makeup? Can it control oil on the face?
Yes, it is
Yes that's what it's for
Hello! I use this product to control oil production on my nose! I would say it counts as skincare and make up because it leaves the skin shine free but it also preps your skin for foundation! It's a very nice product!
Hi gorgeous! The POREfessional is a primer so it is considered as makeup. This pore-minimizing primer is best for hiding the appearance of pores and fine lines for smoother-than-smooth skin. If you're looking to control all-over shine, we recommend the POREfessional: agent zero shine! This shine-control powder instantly minimizes shine and helps smooth the look of pores. The invisible translucent shade is perfect for every skin tone - wear it over the POREfessional for maximum POREfection!

When should I apply my BBcream? I've got POREfessional but since I use BBcream and I want to start using SPF I want to know how should I use them. Which one goes first, second and third?
Hi beautiful, POREfessional is a primer so you should use it right after moisturizing, before you apply your BB cream. B xo

can (should) i use this with big easy? if so, which one first? i have fairly oily skin.
well i use the porefessional underneath the big easy, so i dont see why not :)
Of course you can! You can use it before or you can mix both products together and then apply.
Will this work around eyes I wanted to know if this would be good to use around the eye area to keep my concealer from getting in my fine lines and wrinkles?
Yes! I use it on my eyelids and it prevents my makeup from creasing and smudging. It works just as well on my eyelids as it does on the rest of my face.
I use the POREfessional all over my face, including fine lines around my eye area and it works a treat. Try it!
How do I know if the Porefessional is still good to use after its expiration? Because when applied, it kinda breaks down already
In general, our unopened products have a shelf life of 36 months.
My large pore area is on either side of my nose, below my eyes. Will this work for that area?
Yes it worked for me :)
It worked for me. I got to try it in a sample tube; ask if they could give you one.. It's an amazing product. I had given up on pore minimizers. Good luck.
Absolutely! That is where my worst pores and acne scars are, I'd be lost without this.
Yes work for that area.
Yes, Gorgeous! You can use POREfessional all over your face.
Usage of the product Can the POREfessional be used all over the face as a primer? Can it be used on a daily basis. I have a few pores on my cheeks. My aim is to hide the pores as well as serve as a primer to lock my foundation & powder. Or should I opt of the 15 hr Flawless Primer? Thanks.
After being surprising pleased with the results of this product, I read the insert. You can use it as a primer before foundation and as a touch-up after applying foundation. Give it a try. Ask if you can get a small sample tube.
This product does well as a primer, in fact, I add this to my priming routine and I find it stays on long and strong! I use this product every day, it is the very first thing I put on my face even before my primer. it does hide your pores and does well as a primer. Good Luck -Serenity
POREfessional is meant to be used as a primer, all over your face. If your primer concern is to hide your pores, I'd definitely recommend POREfessional. If your main concern is to lock on your makeup, I'd recommend Stay Flawless.
Can POREfessional be used as an eye primer/base
No, because every products are made for different use. This is for pores... you need a add product in your eyes, especific made for that area, its super sensitive
If you're looking for an eye primer or base, I'd recommend giving Stay Don't Stray a try. POREfessional isn't meant to be used on your eyes.
Silicone or water based? Just wondering because I heard silicone isn't great for the skin.
POREfessional is silicone based.
Cheeks? I have huge pores on my cheeks and want to make them less noticeable. Can I use this product on that area?
I use this product primarily on my cheeks, chin and nose. It does a great job on my cheeks. Just make sure your face is very clean and that you let it dry all the way before applying any foundation. No primer will make your pore go away completely, but this does a great job smoothing you out. (Sometimes I wear it all over my face, but most days I just moisturize all over and then put this on my problem areas.) ** I have fairly bad acne and HUGE pores.
Sure, you can either use it alone or with other make-up base. I usually don't like to make up a lot so I just put on the sunscreen and then apply this one to my face on top. It looks gorgeous covering all the pores on the cheeks and nose. Hope this helps :)
Definitely! You can use POREfessional all over your face to help minimize the appearance of pores and fine lines.
Is this good at oil-controlling for T-zone?
you can use this for an oil control but i recommend the 15 hour stick primer its more matte and because your oily there your makeup most likely slips so the 15 hour hold is great. and obviously you should use powder!
To keep your T-Zone under control, apply the POREfessional from the center of the face outward by patting lightly with fingertips.
If POREfessional helps with pores, how is it on fine lines and wrinkles??
It sort of helps "blur" the look of fine lines, the same way it helps blur the look of pores. It's not going to make you look 20 years younger but it really does sort of "soft-focus" the look of your face and it does help foundation apply more smoothly, in my experience, and that further helps with the "blurring" effect.
Porefessional will help to minimize the appearance of fine lines, and give your skin a smoother than smooth finish.
Could I use both porefessional and the 15hour primeror would that be redundant? I just both a sample of porefessional, and the full size hello flawless 15 hour primer. Do they do different things, or would it be redundant if I used them both at once?
I use the POREfessional where my pores are the largest, not all over my face, and then use the Hello Flawless 15 hour primer everywhere else and I love them together!
Yes, you can use the POREfessional and Stay Flawless together. You can quickly minimize the appearance of pores and fine lines with The POREfessional and maintain foundation longevity and long wear by using Stay Flawless afterward.
Application Help! I bought a trial-size tube of this from Ulta and got a tiny, tiny free tube of it as well during a freebie promotion. I was sooooooooo excited to try it and even got some of the Hello Flawless foundation to try over it. Sadly, it didn't work. At all. I saw a video online from a makeup artist who suggested using a stippling brush in small circles to erase huge pores but even that didn't work. I want to love this product, can anyone help with suggestions of an application technique? (I have very fair, oily skin and live in a more humid climate.)
im a makeup artist so i hope this helps. 1. apply your usual face products concealer, foundation,etc. 2.apply this product just on your cheek bones, the bridge of your nose, upper lip cupid part 2 WAY- 1. take your foundation and mix it with girl meets pearl 2. apply powder,blush,etc. the 2 way might be better for your oily skin so yeah also go on youtube type in how to use girl meets pearl on oily skin hope this helped
Hi: I'm not sure if you've already tried applying the POREfessional on your T-zone first and then applying your Hello Flawless foundation on top of the POREfessional. You can also try mixing both and applying the mixture on your face with a foundation brush. Hope I've been helpful!
Is color matter? Is this product have color? or is only one color? im confuse since when I going to order this product and it didnt have any choice of color come up. Thanks
It is only 1 color, but when using it, you can't see the color it has. Basically, it works for ALL skin tones!
This product is a color-less primer. It is not available in additional shades.
How long will the POREfessional last you? I am super excited to get this! However, it is only .75 oz which feels like a small amount. So I was just wondering how long it normally lasts and how much you should use! Thanks!
Hi CEC13 I agree the tube is small. I can usually get three months of everyday (even weekend) use of the POREfessional tube. One of the suggestions I made in my review of the product was to have two sizes--one for people like me who don't enjoy ordering every couple of months and the original size. I hope this helps you. Be Well Disneylady2
You only need to use a pea sized amount each time.
