Customers love that it's
Really good investment. So smoothing.
I first used this product when I was a teenager - got blessed with a great Christmas gift. This is such a great primer - I have never found a primer to compare it to. I'm mostly porous on my nose and a little on my cheeks, but I also put it on my forehead and chin to reduce shine. It is very lightweight and great for wearing under or without foundation and concealer. A must have!
BEST PRIMER EVER!
It is unbelievable the way this product minimizes pores! Highly recommended
I absolutely love this product, I have very large pores especially around my nose and when I where the porefessional you can barely see them and I love that it makes my skin so soft!, definitely will be re purchasing this product
Does a great job of covering pores! I do recommend.
I received a tester of this product and as soon as I put it on I felt totally airbrushed. I've tried a lot of primers before and I've never used one that worked this well!! My makeup stayed on all day, which is something I'm not accustomed too and constantly have to retouch because I have dry skin. I will admit, the texture was very strange and quite grainy feeling at first but it's not noticeable when it's on your face.
Would definately recommend this product! It's fantastic!!
I use this Primer on my nose where I have the most pores, it pretty much makes them disappear and my skin feels smoother too. It lasts all day, even in the t-zone.
i've been using this product every day for a month straight and it did never let me down!. i use it for my nose mostly, great for my medium-oily skin. i love it!. yet, i'd like for it to be a bit cheaper since i can not get it in my country
I'm absolutely in love with this product. It gives me a matte-nificent complexion that lasts throughout the day!
Can't go without it!
When I first started using this product, I was using it with Tarte Amazonian Clay Foundation. The one I got was for dry skin. They didn't work well together and I couldn't figure out why. It was actually making my pores appear larger and my foundation would start to crumble almost immediately. I finally figured out it was the foundation/moisturizer combo I was using. Come to find out the foundation just wasn't for me. So I moved on. By that time I had wasted over a half a tube. Well I picked it up again one day to give it one more try. Glad I did! I figured out, (for me & my dry skin) I needed to dab & press/blot it on. Not rub it in. Now it works wonders! I can't do without it. My foundation & shape tape go on so smoothly! I LOVE it!
Not my favourite primer
I have quite large pores but I found this primer didn't hide them that well. It felt quite oily on my skin and kept sliding off. However, I gave the product to a friend of mine and she adored it and it worked perfectly for her skin, so I suppose it's a matter of skin type
First time I tried this stuff I bought the small one just before Christmas time it was on sale, now I cannot live without it! I find with this stuff underneath my foundation it makes it go on super smooth and it helps prevent breakouts on my face! When I start to get low I literally stress about getting a new one before I run out! Definitely worth it!
This product is perrrrfectt! Its blend well with my skin. Make my face look flawless and I love the texture(not oily at all). Every women should have it!!!!!!!!!
First step to archives flawless look!!
It works wonder to my face!Always wear it first to archieves "flawless" look! Worth every penny!!
HIDE UNWANTED PORES!
The product that I kept buying for several years. Quickly minimise the pores & fine lines! It's translucent, oil-free formula complements all skintones and also helps makeup stay put.
This primer make my skin extremely dry. After applying my foundation you could see the dry skin underneath. I've never had this problem before, if anything my skin is more oily. However it does feel silky, smooth and lightweight.
Can no longer be without
Hey guys, I've given a review here, but I have to improve. I just love it! I have some more pores and I have always been hiding. Did not stand up against the sun and entertain me, I also no closer than 2m before someone placed in daylight. It was very unpleasant for me and I was hiding. NOT ANY LONGER LONGER! It is nice that there is something like that ....
Caused skin reddness
I tried this primer because everyone said it was the best, after one use my face looked horrible. Not only were my pores clogged, but my skin broke out in red marks across my checks and nose areas. I've never had any reactions to produces before, but this was horrible, four days later and the marks are still there. :(
This product has excellent features!
Nice product. It has good result.
The product makes your skin feel so smooth and comfortable
I have never used a primer as bad as this one. I had high hopes for it since it's such a cult favorite and I love most of Benefit's products. Other than making my usually moisturized skin start peeling off in large pieces, my makeup became even more easy to smudge than usual. I'm not sure if this is just for me since it generally gets wonderful reviews. Probably just going to give it away, so that sucks since I was super excited to try it. Oh well
This product makes your skin feel so silky smooth and prolongs your makeup for the whole day! Perfect for events or work as it makes my makeup stay on!!
This primer is light-weight and perfect for normal and oily skin. I also love how it makes my skin feel super soft!
So pleased with this product.
I had oily skin (particularly on my forehead) for so long and didn't know how to treat it. I tried this primer and from the first use, my skin wasn't oily at all. Only use a small bit and it lasts from 7am to 7pm easily. I will be buying in bulk!
A must for any photography studio
I always have this on hand for those shine t zones or other shine disasters when shooting portraits , especially good for the men
Great Face Primer
Porefessional Face Primer is an awesome product. It makes my skin feel really smooth and silky. I wouldn't be without this amazing primer.
Makes my skin soft and beautiful!
The perfect Primer
I have very large poores and spotty skin and my makeup normally always goes on very streaky. But with porefessional it just looks really good. I always thought it was the foundation and tried everything that would go light enough and now I know, I've just been using the wrong primer.
This makes my skin feel so soft
There are much better products out there, for a much cheaper price. It goes on quite well and is smooth; but it doesn't do much for covering up my pores. It actually made my mum's look much worse!
I've never bought a primer from Benefit, I have always used drug store primers and this one time Ipsy sent me Too Faced's coconut primer and fell in love with it. It's an amazing primer but didn't reach my expections, I'd feel like my bb cream wouldn't set fast, I'd have itchy skin. After two months I received Benefit's Primer Porefessional, and was kinda excited because I heard about this primer but doubted it. And once I used it OH MY GOODNESS, it smells amazing, I like to leave it on and massage it on my t-zone and under eyes, your skin feels soft when using it and after I used this concealer that I hated, I used it while using this Primer AND IT FINALLY SITS BEAUTIFULLY! I love this and will now purchase this Primer! Good job benefit!!
I love this product because it makes my skin feel so soft and even. It also stays matte and definitely minimises the appearance of pores! The only reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5 is that it sometimes crumbles a bit if you apply it on a specific area e.g nose
Pores Disappear and Matches Skin Color!
I got the small, sample size so I had to order a larger size! This product made it appear as if my large pores did not exist and blended so well with my skin! I always have the problem of matching a color to my light, olive skin, but this product covered my problem areas and was not oily. If anything, it did contain my oily skin a bit. Just do no use it to cover pimples because it does not really do that.
Makes your skin so soft!
When I tried this product I was impressed with how soft it makes my skin. I use this primer every day in my daily routine! I can't remember life without it!
More bang for the buck!
I am impressed with Benefit Cosmetics The Porefessional. I used this amazing product to minimize my pores, but what I found was I could also use it as a foundation! I found it complimented my skin tone and of course minimized my pores. 2 in 1! (Although it is not advertised as such) I loved the feel of it on my skin. It's a liquid, but a dry liquid if that makes sense. A little bit goes a long way.
Good for everyday use.
Makes all the pores on my nose disappear! Love it. Only problem is that, as someone who has troubled skin, I can't use it often without breaking out where I put it.
Silky smooth formula
I love this product, as it hides all pores !
This product is amazing!I've tried several other primers before and nothing comes close.Its the first one that keeps my skin matte all day.It also leaves skin very smooth and makes pores visibly smaller.
I have big pores and my cheeks coming close and on my nose. I'm really self conscious about it. Porefessional minimizes the appearance of my "problem" pores with ease. Helping my foundation stay on for 12 plus hours. It's really amazing. This is my favorite primer and worth the money. Only a little does the job making it last a while. Worth the money every time. Love this primer so much.
I use this everyday
I have a friend in the POREfessional
It's a bit silly, I know, but I LOVE the POREfessional SpyGal. Really cool.
Big pores no more
Right so I am 40 I have huge pores and nothing I have got has ever worked to hide them but I treated myself to this and wow what a difference it is. My skins feels soft and young again and the pores no were to be seen. I was wearing it all day and in sunny climate so expected it to not last but it was perfect right up to me taking my make up off tonight. Amazing product.
oil-stopping life saver
I personally don't have much of a problem with the appearance of my pores, so I picked it up to use as a primer that stopped my face from turning into a greasy mess in an hour. It did that and then exceeded my expectations. It goes on feeling like satin on your skin and you don't have to wait for it to set which is a huge plus for me. It keeps me from getting my normal oil build up for hours and then can easily be dabbed on on top of makeup when a little oil does come. Sometimes I even wear it when I'm not wearing makeup because its so great. Totally recommend!!!
Great for people w/ acne
I have suffered with acne for about 8 years now and about 4 years ago I started wearing makeup. The biggest issue I've always had with my makeup is finding a primer that worked with my skin. Most primers would make my skin dry or oily which would cause my makeup to look pretty bad but one day I saw this primer and decided to give it a try. When I squeezed the product onto my fingers I was amazed by the texture. It feels silky, smooth but so light on the skin. After applying the product I noticed my face wasn't so red and my acne looked different (in a good way) any little zits I had were much less red looking. After applying the rest of my makeup I was shocked. My makeup never looked so smooth and natural.
BEST primer EVER
the POREfessional does exactly what the name suggests, its Benefits best kept secret, love it!
Love how it makes my skin feel, can't get enough!
Worked really well
omg this is the best product i have ever used i defiantly recommend it

Love this product!
I love this product! It really does minimize the appearance of pores and acts as a great primer for your face! I bought the smallest size at first to try, fell in love with it, bought the jumbo size during December and I still have it and I use it every day!
Save your money.
I'm switching back to my old primer. I bought this because I'd heard so many great things, but it certainly didn't live up to the hype. I felt like I had to use a TON to get an effect at all. There was no difference in the visibility of my pores, and it certainly didn't last all day. It also has a really strong fragrance that was too strong for me.
I wore this for quite a while as foundation before I even realized It is actually primer & I was using it "incorrectly." I put incorrectly in quotes because it's just that amazing! It's so light & effective. My skin feels like suede with this. I have Benefit's the POREfessional - License to Blot, which is why I guess I made the error originally. It's far heavier, somewhat sticky. I almost never use it now.
Simple to apply.
This product is easy to apply.

I look good

Canadian English Review
These are great!!!
I love POREfessional
There are many reasons to love POREfessional, one of the biggest being the POREfessional Agent.
hides my pores!
The Porefessional hides my pores - I just need a little dab in the morning & my pores vanish into thin air! Super quick & easy.
It's a mystery!
I mix together a squeeze of POREfessional and a squeeze of "that gal" brightening primer and put on some blush and I'm on my way -- or I should say I'm primed! People say wow, you skin looks great. Not wearing heavier makeup but still looking finished is a wonderful thing.
My favourite primer, i use it everyday and am now running out after almost a year
My favourite primer
I have tried quite a few high end primers and this is my favorite so far. I have an oily T-Zone and I find that it helps control it. If definitely does not keep my make up flawless all day as I still find myself oil blotting by lunchtime. It also feels a little greasy when it is first applied which is not what someone with oily skin wants to feel on their face!
Silky smooth primer
Luxurious primer and pore filler! Goes on silky smooth and helps make up stay on all day long! A little goes a long way too so the product should last a while. Love how easily my Hello Flawless foundation goes on over the top of this to deliver a gorgeous finish without creasing! Definitely adding this to my make up arsenal on a regular basis!
Does just what it says on the box!
Tried this product for the first time as the reviews were so good. Wasn't disappointed, it's like putting silk on your face. Can't believe that it's so good makes my make up look so much better than before. Will definitely be a staple in my make up bag from now on.
Found the one primer that actually really makes me happy. Pores shrink, shine disappears and it lasts... really it does. I also use much less product than I usually did with other brands. Porefessional was born for me!!
The fix for my big ol' pores!
Whenever I take a magazine survey on a makeup product I could not do without, Porefessional is the first thing that comes to mind. Seriously, I should buy Benefit stock, I use so much of this.
Skin Refining Base
Got a sample of POREfessional with another Benefit purchase and rushed back to purchase the full size product. Fantastic at refining open pores and giving skin a youthful, smooth and fresh look. Perfect under make-up. Thoroughly recommended.
This product was great the first two times I used it. Now, it makes my pores even bigger and it hilights them instead of minimize them. I'm disappointed and I wish I could return it but now I'm stuck with a full size.
Farewell shine! (:
The product is wonderful for keeping the skin matte! My T zone can get super wonkers! This helps to keep everything in check! Also my skin hasn't had any negative reactions!! YAS!
EXCELLENT primer !
I don't know what it's change in my face but Of course i FEEL it's changed something i didn't know what is so far, it's prove and keeps the foundation longer than it is I'm in love with this product !!
J'ai été déçue
J'ai acheté le produit chez Sephora suite à la recommandation de la dame. J'avais besoin de produit pour cacher mes port et matifier mon visage quand je travaille sans que j'ai besoin de me maquiller. Le produit ne se porte pas bien seul. Ma peau est soyeuse le premier deux heures puis elle devient hyper-grasse. je ne le recommande pas pour quelqu'un qui ne se maquille pas beaucoup.
I love this stuff. I leaves my skin feeling flawless and smooth to the touch. When I'm done rubbing it into my face I use whatevers left and rub it into my hands and people always comment how soft my hands are. I don't know if its just me but I also love the way it smells!
I got this full sized in the primed for take off set, it instantly became my No.1 primer, and thats not easy considering i am an absolute primer junkie! This is definitely worth the money.
Magic in a really, really big tube!
POREfessional hides my red patches and really locks in my makeup. The smell is wonderful and it is just like a balm to apply. What a gem to put on either on its own, or under/over makeup!
I got this as a free sample and I love it! I'd been using bare escentuals and it does nothing for me. I tried this and it smothed out my light rolling acne scars and pores. It also filled in my light forehead lines. I was amazed. It works very well with my dry skin and under my make up.
Hides all pores and smells so nice! love this balm!!
LOVE! This product makes my skin look super smooth and...
LOVE! This product makes my skin look super smooth and locks in my makeup so it lasts the entire day. I love to follow with agent zero shine by dusting over my foundation.
Good but runs out quickly
Brilliant primer! I don't really have troubles with my pores but I've found it makes my skin a great texture and a perfect base for makeup. My only problem is that since I use it on my whole face and not just my T-zone it runs out quite quick as you need a lot of the product to cover a larger area. Also it's super expensive!
MAKES PORES STAND OUT
This makes my pores stand out more than w/out. I don't know why, but they seems to show up lighter on my pale skin w/ the POREfessional.
Makes my skin so so soft but it can go bitty
https://keriaventblog.wordpress.com/2015/06/10/did-i-regret-my-benefit-spend/ read my blog post to see my review on this! xxx
spackle for rough skin
Without Porefessional my face looks at least 5 years older, and that matters at my age. It fills in my ever-widening pores and small lines, gently evens out my skin tone, keeps the shine at bay and has a light, refreshing scent. I use a lot of it in the morning, with a light touch-up at lunch and before dinner. I've never worn foundation as it settles into my lines and looks very fake to me, but this stuff feels and looks incredibly natural.
When you apply this to your skin it feels so nice. Its like velvet on your fingers, I have never used a primer with the same texture. I find that it really does cover every single pore on my face, leaving me with a smooth complexion. It just blends into my skin tone perfectly.
Absolutely love this product! Feels silky on your skin, minimizes pores and makes the rest of your make up look better as well. Will definitely be buying this again in the value size as I feel it may not last as long as i would like in the 22ml and there is a big saving by buying the 44ml value size. Definitely recommend this product!
I bought a full size version of this product after hearing great reviews that it was good for oily skin. However, I am very disappointed. When I apply the POREfessional, I dab it lightly over my t-zone which is the oiliest area of my face and where my pores are most visible. As soon as I rub it in, it leaves my skin feeling cakey, itchy and very uncomfortable, rather than the smooth, light texture that I want. It does not make my foundation last all day, in fact it wipes the foundation off my face by mid morning! Also, it does not minimize the appearance of pores. This product also makes me break out which I hate. For the extortionate price I paid for this, and the appalling quality of it, I will not be buying it again. Very disappointed. I will be going back to other products that I have used in the past that are far better than this.
From the first time I used this I knew I would be wearing this everyday! Makes my makeup look flawless and so much better all day! Can't live without it now!
Met my expectations and more!
I went to a Benefits inside a Macy's a while ago and got the small size as a free gift. I had it applied to my face by a employee there and it made my skin look so smooth (and younger, though Im only 18) and really reduced the size of the pores around my eyes, since those seem to be the biggest. It doesn't feel heavy and smooths over my skin very easily and does not cake or look very obvious that I'm wearing it. And another thing, it has a nice smell! I use this mainly towards the middle of my face, especially around my eyes. Love it.
Silky easy to apply
I have never been a fan of primers and never wear foundation, so when I tried this I wasn't expecting much.....how wrong i was! I am never without one in my make up bag now, it's grt for fine lines and makes my complexion smooth and my skin silky. I use this and apply Hula and its gives me a healthy looking glow....its a brilliant base.
It really works!!!
This is my favorite product of all time!!! I've always wanted something that would give me instant results of minimizing my pores and this does the trick 100%! I like that it goes on super smooth and is tinted to match almost any skin tone. The only thing I wish it did better was stay on longer. I generally have to apply more in the afternoon. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who wants to minimize the appearance of their pores.
I tried this primer as I don't like to wear foundation in the day as I find it too heavy for my skin. It goes on well & really covers fine lines & pores. I have quite oily skin but the primer stayed on throughout the day. I Love this product!
Not a bad primer
I've tried worse primers but I've tried better. I have largish pores on my nose which I'm always desperate to cover. I thought this would act like some magical solution but I was sadly disappointed. It does create a matte finish and keeps my makeup on longer but doesn't really fill my pores overly well. It's sad because I expected so much more from this primer. I don't think this is worth the hype.
I was not impressed with this product, it was greasy and seemed to just melt off my dry/combination skin! Will be sticking to my MAC primer from now on. Don't waste your money!
Silky and smooth
I've never been a fan of primers now I know I just hadn't found the right one. I love this primer it leaves my skin feeling so silky and smooth.
PoreFessional is great. It feels so light on the skin and doesn't weigh you down when you wear foundation over the top. It is the best pore minimiser I have used to date.
I bought the POREfessional as recommended by a friend as was told it would help with my pores and some blemishes. Well I love it!! Definitely worth a place in any makeup bag. It makes your skin silky soft, minimizing pores and allows my makeup to sit better too. LOVE LOVE LOVE
More Like Poor-fessional
Don't get me wrong, I love Benefit. Who doesn't love the darling vintage illustrations, quirky packaging, and cute names, but I have to say I'm disappointed with the Porefessional Primer. Pros: 1. It makes your skin smooth and matte, 2. it's packaged nicely, and 3. it makes your makeup stay longer: it creates a barrier between your skin and your makeup. Cons: 1. It smells gross, 2. it didn't make my pores appear any smaller (and I don't have abnormally small or large pores), 3. very pricey, especially when there are primers that work better at its intended purpose, 4. it felt thick on my skin, even in the recommended pea size amount, and 5. it's so little product for the price, my bottle came unopened but I swear only half of the container was full. So in my experience, yes it works as a basic primer, but it didn't live up to the description of the product, and I'd much rather buy a drugstore primer that reduces the size of my pores, makes my skin matte, reduces redness, lasts longer, and doesn't feel quite so heavy or have an odor.
Amazing but pricey
This primer makes foundation application smooth and easy. Its good for people with dry skin. This primer however, is really expensive for the small amount it provides you with. There are primers such as too faced ones, that are the same cost or even less and have double the amount.
The first time I tried this on one side of my cheek I...
The first time I tried this on one side of my cheek I actually yelled out "HOLY $@^&!" and my sister asked what was wrong and I showed her one side of my face compared to the other and she was seriously impressed as well. It lasts really well and has a great texture. It's so great. Plus the packaging and character is adorable.
Worth the money.
Having never used a primer before - I got this a tester size in gift pack. From the first use I was hooked. Makes skin appear smoother, makes make up look perfect and airbrushed. Love it x
Money well spent!
I wasn't a big fan of primers and didn't usually bother with them, I have naturally oily skin so my pores are a nightmare. I got this in the how to look the best at everything beauty kit and I'm glad I did! It made my makeup go on perfectly and made my skin feel so smooth and silky. After finishing my beauty kit I straight away bought another tube of this amazing magic! It's lightweight, makes pores almost invisible and gives you a definite confidence boost! Verrry soft, and worth every penny! Spreads really easily so you don't have to use a lot and depending on how you use it can last you a long while! Certainly not disappointing and I certainly recommend it!
LOVE LOVE LOVE
The best product eveeeer! Thanks to Nicole Guerriero <3
Bought my first POREfessional a while ago and was amazed with it from day one. It provides great coverage and totally minimises pores. I have oily skin and know that this will get me through the day with a bit of addedd confidence. The primer is really lightweight and your skin feels lovely after application. This product really is great value for money as a little goes a long way and a tube lasts for ages. Buy this you will not be disappointed.

This item is amazing if been using it for years, but the service I have received from yourselves it's disgraceful! I told you I received my order but the lollitint had leaked and damaged the bag and your response was to return the whole order, so I have to pay more to return that and wait another few weeks for you to send it back, I will never be shopping with you again even though I am a benefit queen and have every product I am disgusted at how I was treated!!!! And will be posting this on Facebook and sharing with all my friends!!!
Not a necessity
I don't particularly like using primers, but it makes skin feel and look lovely and smooth. Unfortunately I didn't notice much improvement in the staying power of my foundation when using this - if anything, it seemed to make it slide more. I think I will stick to just using moisturiser.
This product is easy to use and quick to apply
My pores are ACTUALLY hardly visible! I'm in LOVE.
Best primer in the world
My skin is usually very dry however after using Porefessional it feels like my skin transformed! I usually wear it without make up and it gives my skin a healthy natural look. After using Porefessional my skin feels silky, radiant and just simply healthy! Best primer I've ever used.
lightweight & reliable
Love that it evens out my complexion and hides pores. Pretty awesome!
I want to marry this primer. It smells awesome and doesn't break me out, plus it lasts all day so my skin always looks great! This is by far my favorite primer I've ever tried.
Makes me skin feel beautifully smooth and my make up glides on after which is amazing. I don't have an issue with large pores so it is more for the feeling on my skin and a make up base
I originally recieved this product from my sister who got it as a free gift. I fell in love instantly! I have a lot of complextion flaws and this gets the job done for minimizing my pores! The first time I used it, a friend commented that something about me looked different! This is great stuff, thanks BENEFIT!
A new must have!!
I have to admit, I never thought I needed anything like this. I thought things were just fine with out...then I decided to get it and just see what it was all about. Now I can't live without it! I won't live without it! I refuse! I do not have a shiny face or even large pores but this just perfects everything! Makes it all appear seamless and allows my tinted moisturizer to smooth on flawlessly. I actually end up using less of my tinted moisturizer now b/c I don't have to keep slathering it on to get the look I want. It is kinda pricey but what can you do and the tube is on the smaller side but you only need a small amount to get the job done. Job well done I should say!
Love this product's silky features
This starts as a cream, but turns to silk as it's rubbed over your skin. I don't notice any pores and all I feel is the silkiness of my skin. I want to rub my face over and over. I wear this before my skin foundation primer. I use my fingers not a brush to apply.
Great primer for smooth skin!
I was really excited to buy the Porefessional because of all the rave reviews. And let me tell you that it did not disappoint! I used to look really shiny around noon, but after using this primer, I had no shine whatsoever! It is also good for smoothing out blemishes. It even has a subtle, lovely fragrance to it. It's the perfect way to look "I can't put my finger on it" better!
first time I have used this product. dose what it says on the tube. really pleasedwith finished result.
Omg, i didn't actually believe this would work but i bought it anyway because i needed a primer and i was pleasantly surprised! it actually made my pores smaller, this is the only product i have discovered to actually do this! smooth as well! would definitely purchase it again!
I first got this product in a sample size in the Benefit beauty kit, How To Look The Best At Everything, and fell in love with it. I works as a great base for foundations and bb creams, making skin soft and silky or you can use it for touch ups throughout the day. I will be repurchasing!!
Magic in a tube
I've fallen in love with this product, absolutely amazing! Would highly recommend it to everyone! It glides on evenly and makes my skin feel velvety and smooth and it always looks flawless!
This is the best beauty find... Makes my skin feel silky smooth and makes makeup stay put!
Love it- didn't used to
The first time I got this was a few years ago and while I liked how it made my makeup look, it broke me out. Since then I've been removing my makeup and cleansing my face much better than I used to, so I've tried it again, been using it for over a month and so far no problems whatsoever! Love it.
Silky and applies easily
Porefessional is like the icing on the cake! I used to use it under my BB cream, but since using Big Easy, I just glide Porefessional as a 'finishing touch' on my look. Plus I love how it smells! Makeup artist friends say that I have great skin, and recommend that I just use Porefessional alone on a daily basis. I tried this technique, and it really works, even on the undereye area! For a hot and humid country like the Philippines, this is such a lifesaver! <3
i love this! it makes your skin feel so smooth and...
i love this! it makes your skin feel so smooth and velvety. i use this every day underneath my makeup and its just perfect. i've repurchased this 3 times now!
This product glides on and does what it says. Very nice..
This product glides on and does what it says. Very nice..
this product is amazing! it helps my make-up stay on for hours and greatly reduces the appearance of my pores and fine lines...it feels like legit silk on my face and makes me feel refreshed x love love love it x
Hides my enlarged pores beautifully
I never thought I'd find a product that hide the enlarged pores on my nose and chin totally whilst lasting almost the whole day. I was recommended this by my daughter and bingo! Easy to apply and looks great on its on, with powder or under foundation.
The effect is great, the skin looks silky and you can feel how soft it is. I have an oily skin, and I feel that a few hours after I apply the product, my skin is even more oily!
Silky smooth skin
I bought this product a while ago and have used it every day since! My make up glides on when I use this product and it helps to make my skin look beautiful. I love it! Would definitely recommend it.
This makeup primer has the 'wow' factor; not only does Benefit The POREfessional act as a makeup base to help keep makeup looking fresh for longer, this silicone based formula creates a stunning smooth film over the skin which sits along enlarged pores and temporarily eradicates their visual appearance! Having enlarged pores that sit along my cheeks near my nostrils, I admit that while others cannot see them, I know they are there and it bothers me to see them even when wearing makeup so it is just so nice to be able to conceal them using The POREfessional. The lightweight formula glides over the skin and is actually really deceiving for first time users because when you first see the formula, one would assume that a lot is needed when in fact a pea sized amount is more than enough to cover the face (and maybe a tad more to cover the neck area also). If you are used to creamy liquid primers then the texture of this might feel a little strange at first but you do get used to it quickly. The POREfessional is a light skintone colour and blends out to a translucent finish. What I love most about this multi-tasking primer is the fact that it can be worn over and underneath makeup so while it will help makeup last longer throughout the day, and keep it looking fresh, when a touch of this is lightly dabbed over open pores once makeup is applied, the pores will appear to have been erased in just seconds. Plus the product blends in over makeup and does not look like it was even applied on top - genius! I have used The POREfessional in the past on makeup clients whilst on wedding jobs and this little wonder has miraculously concealed the appearance of really (really) large pores and women have been so thrilled at my 'magician' work! Please know that whilst it does eradicate the appearance of open pores, unfortunately your pores are still there - but hey, you were expecting that right? The easy squeeze tube makes the product hygienic and easy to apply and the vintage/retro hottie on the front is really cute as well. I will certainly purchase The POREfessional in future when I am in need of concealing my woeful pores and flaws and will continue to recommend it to others.
Me encanto este minimizador de poros, huele delicioso y cada vez que lo aplico en mi rostro siento como si mi cutis se convirtiera en el exterior de un durazno
This is one of those products that will wow you! You only need just a dab and you will see a major difference! I spot use this product on my problem areas to minimize my pores. I have not found that it clogs pore either. It makes my skin look perfectly smooth! A little goes a long way, so this is a great value as well!
I have oily skin and open pores and have tried so many primers you could not begin to imagine! I tried this and WOW it is worth every single penny! My make up goes on beautifully and my oily skin (though not cured) is kept at bay for the longest amount of time of any other primers. I used to have to powder as soon as I applied my liquid foundation but now I rarely use my powder!
Only product I cant use
I thought this product was going to be awesome but come to find out it makes me break out really bad. I love every other Benefit product though. I am so disappointed because I have a whole tube that hasn't even been opened!
POREfessional is my new love!
I received Porefessional as a sample on a magazine and after my first try I was pleasantly surprised at the results. I then decided to seek out samples of other Benefit products and now use the skin care range. Going back to Porefessional; it's perfect and does exactly what it says on the tin. When my little sample tube of Porefessional runs out, I'm going to purchase the big one.
I love this product! Your pores are nearly invisible and...
I love this product! Your pores are nearly invisible and your skin feels very smooth!
Magic in a tube. It erases all of my skin imperfections: discoloration, large pores, smile lines, you name it. It's silky smooth and it makes your skin look and feel like porcelain. I've always been self-conscious of my skin, but this works wonders. Not only that, but it makes my makeup last all day, even in the 100 degree heat. I would (and have) highly recommend this product. It works well on all skin tones and types, too. My only complaint is the price tag, but it's worth it.
Sorting you out on bad days...
I love the Porefessional! This is my handbag favourite. I apply the primer first thing on a morning (under my make-up) then occasionally reapply throughout the day. It offers long protection against the natural elements and also helps smoothen rigid and pore-invasive skin. Helps make me look the best version of myself. Great for use under make-up or just on it's own. Would definitely recommend! XOXO
Absolutely love it.
I love this product so so much, it just glides on so easily and anything I put on top just goes on so smoothly. It's great for school, as it gives just enough coverage to hide any little blemishes :)
Gives great coverage
I love porefessional, Its gives such an airbrushed finish to a whole look. Porefessional hides pores well and has a matt finish which is great for oily skin. The one downside is that I can only really use it occasionally as using it every day does make my pores allot worse.
Fantastic product that glides on so smoothly and feels silky. A product that I use daily with no negatives that I can point out. Sits on my skin really well. I initially got this as a sample while travelling and I'm sold on the product, so I order it from you guys in the US and ship it to Australia. Its funny because another company in Australia has just launched the same/similar product and I received a sample...but it's just not the same and no where as great as yours:-) Yours is 10/10!
It does a good job covering the pores up, but the texture is greasy and after a few hours, it melts down.
I love this primer, it makes my makeup look great and makes my makeup stay on almost all day! Its the best primer I have purchased and I love the smell of it! I also love the feeling it has on my face after I have applied it, will be buying this again!
This was one of the very first Benefit products that I...
This was one of the very first Benefit products that I bought, and with all of the hype I was expecting to be wowed. I applied the product in my T-zone and other areas where my pores are more visible. A little bit of this product does go a long way, which is really nice. Right after I put this product on and followed it with my other makeup products for the day, the effect was great! I could really see a difference in the appearance (or lack of) of my pores and the subtle matte finish was great. The only thing I don't like about this product is that the initial effect doesn't last all day with my makeup. I will definitely be throwing this product in my bag whenever I know I'm going to be doing some big touch-up throughout the day! Overall, a good product just not a "wonder product".
This is an amazing product that I'm so glad I discovered. I put it on before my foundation and it makes such a difference to how my make up looks. It hides pores and makes my face look flawless!! It's lightweight, silky and smells amazing. After all my makeup is complete I dab a little more on my cheeks and blend and follow with Zero Agent Shine for a perfect finish!!
I have large pores on my cheeks and between my eyebrows and I tried the sample tube of the Pore cream and I was amazed. I told all the girls I know to try it. It's smooth and makes the pores disappear.
It grate product
I think is very good product in compare from others , this is the best, but after few hour my pores appear again, I don't know if I check too often after few hours of apply. I was very happy first , with out look at the mirror after hour of application, cause was very good, but one day i start a track of the product. last only 2 hours on my skin, then the pores are visible again.
Better for Oily Skin
I had a little tube of this as part of a kit. I quite like this primer but not sure I liked it enough to buy in in full sized. For me it doesn't feel moisturising enough, however on someone with more oily skin I'm sure it would be great. I think it did help makeup go on more smoothly and last a little longer but you do have to be careful how you apply your foundation over it or it will formulate into tiny little clumps and peel off. I've got application mastered now but not sure this product is for me.
I had given up on so-called "pore minimizers", but I received this one in a sample size. It feels so clean and silky, but, I did not expect such amazing results by the next day. I bought the regular size and am glad to have found it. A must have!
I've used a lot of Primers and I really struggle to find one that actually keeps pores looking visibly smaller and keeping my make-up on all day. POREfessional has been my favourite primer for almost a year now and it's a product I've repurchased on countless occasions. I would 100% recommend this as it leaves your skin, non greasy and smooth and keeps the make-up in place!!
Can't Live Without It
Great stuff. Works like magic to cover pores instantly. It is now a part of my daily routine.
Minimizes those pores, but accentuates dry skin.
Having combination skin, I had my ups and downs with this product. I had heard so many great reviews about it that I knew I had to try it seeing as though I do suffer from large pores. But due to my skin type, I did find that it accentuated some of the dry spots that I have, and sometimes even made it look a little flaky. But I have to say, it did minimize my pores and controlled my shine to a degree but if you have dry skin I don't know if this is the product for you. Overall I did like this product and by exfoliating I found that fixed the loose dry skin that I had so I would suggest to give this product a go and try it out over a period of time to really see the full potential it has :)
A Savior for my Oily Skin
I tend to reapply my foundation several times a day. It's so frustrating! Enter POREfessional. I am originally from Ohio and picked up this product a few days prior to a vacation in Las Vegas. I knew I wouldn't want to be stressing about my makeup while exploring the strip. Let me tell you, POREfessional was the solution. I knew I'd made a good choice when I did my makeup at 5:30 am, walked along the strip, went on a Hoover Dam tour, took a nap, and woke up an hour before dinner with no need to reapply my foundation. It was such a huge change for me! I will be suggesting this product to anyone and everyone.
I think that this primer is really good and it really does help minimize the appearance of pores like it says. I really recommend this product!
I was never a huge fan of primers. I only ever used them to color correct and none of them seemed to do more than that. I have a lot of acne, redness, icepick scars, large pores and overall rough skin. It only took once to know this was my new must-have! I could wear just this and be fine, it blurs my skin so well and applies quickly with a small amount of product. I was a bit skeptical when I saw on the website that it had a slight tint, as I am extremely pale. but it's not noticeable at all. Great under makeup or just on its own for a more relaxed, no-makeup day. All primers say that, but this is the first one I've seen actually make a difference without makeup over it. Truly a unique product and I will never go without again.
love at first dab!
This product is wonderful. I fell in love the second it touched my skin, it felt like butter crossed with silk. It really does hide my pores, every time I put it on I almost skip my bb cream, and I totally could, but then I don't want to because I live how flawless my skin looks with makeup on top! I work in a kitchen, and my makeup never moves. And you only need the tiniest bit so it will last awhile.
Best applied after makeup
Love the texture of the product, very lightweight and smooth, glides easily on the skin. Although the product suggests applying it before foundation, I actually feel it works best on top of foundation, really evens out the skin and pores are rendered invisible! It doesn't remove any foundation/concealer work either which is a huge plus for me! Full review: http://www.pookybanana.com/2013/12/review-swatches-look-benefits-groovy.html
It Does What It Says It Does
I thought the product was lightweight, vanished into the pores pretty well (though my pores are so huge I don't think they'll ever be erased without lasers or something). I also noticed that my make up stays on longer when I prime my face with this product.
Silky Perfect Finish
The best balm ever... the color, texture, all... look great with or without skin bronze tone, dont need change every season the color... its perfect! :) Love it!
AMAZING - BEST PRIMER
After trying and dis liking the maybeline baby skin primer because it was far to sticky and hard to work with.. I decided to purchase my self the porefessional. Not only it minimises my pores it is a great primer to use. My make up lasts all day and it is easy, quick & simple to use. It lasts a while so you get your value for your money as you only need a small amount. YOU NEED TO PURCHASE THIS NOW!
I love this stuff!!
It's like airbrushing your pores away. It has a great texture too, and I always love the packaging of benefit products. Glad I found this one !
Best primer there is!
Although this primer is a little on the expensive side, it really is so worth the money! No surprise it's voted the No.1 selling primer in the UK because it really is amazing. Makes your skin feel super smooth and really creates such a nice base for your make-up. I recommend this to everyone.
WOW! This product made my face completely MATTE. I have oily skin, and in the summer its almost unbearable. With this, it almost erased my pores on my nose and forehead and made my bronzer and blush stay on all day (i don't wear foundation or concealer)
Such an amazing product, makes my skin feel so silky and smooth when applied. Would definitely recommend.
Silky Smooth Perfection
I don't have an issue with visible pores, and had received the POREfessional as a gift a while back. I ran out of my normal primer and thought I might as well give this a go - and wow I'm glad I did. It is sooo silky, sooo smooth, and incredibility light weight. If you're not looking to conceal so much as smooth out, the POREfessional is the product you're looking for. I use on my cheek bones, eye lids, under eye area, and nose before putting on the rest of my makeup. And a little goes a long way!
Nunca había escuchado lo de minimizar poros con ninguna marca de cosméticos pero la primera vez, primera impresión, de lo mejor. 100% recomendable!!!
Love this product, it has an amazing smell and now means I don't have to use foundation. Definitely will continue using!
Well worth it!
It is not a concealer, which at the time when I first got this product I thought it was what I needed. I have large pores around my T-zone, particularly on my nose, and this product worked wonders! IT makes them seem non-existent! I allow it to dry and then put foundation over it then and my face looks fresh and clean! It helps erase the shiny, oily look that many women suffer from! I would honestly highly recommend it! There is nothing like it out on the market and it honestly works perfectly! It stays on for hours and gives your face an instant pore minimization as well as a healthy complexion!
Great for mattifying skin
Really great primer which mattifies skin and shrinks pores. Makes makeup stay in place for a lot longer and stops oily buildup on my own skin. I just wish it lasted longer!
Such a shame!
I've recently got into using MAC studio fix foundation and the powder, which I know work well without a primer (or pro balm which this is) or I used a cheap matte primer, but for the past 4 days I've used porefessional along with my normal products (obviously not using my normal primer) and it makes my foundation look digusting. I look greasy (I have very oily skin) my foundation goes patchy after 2 hours, my foundation clumps up and slides of my face, such a shame as it reduces my pores so well. Unforutnaly I am going to have to return it.
I love this product. It covers up pores and makes your skin look flawless. It's very effective and worth the price. My only problem is that it can leave marks where it looks a little like your peeling. But by using it correctly you should find it works perfectly fine. So I love this overall and would recommend it.
The POREfessional was my first Benefits product purchase a few days ago, and so far I love it! My pores are large on my nose and chin, and with this product, the pores aren't noticeable at all.
I had seen this product featured everywhere and finally decided to try it out myself. It did NOT disappoint. My t-zone looks flawless and this covers up my pores as well as acne scars leaving my skin looking crystal clear. I cannot wait to tell my friends to try this out!
I first tried this when I bought the Snow White & the Huntsman set a couple years ago. I, for some reason, had no idea how to use this and wasn't using it as an all-over primer as I always have clear skin, but it's just a little uneven some days. Once I started using it under my box o' powders, I couldn't believe how even my complexion became and how smooth my powders went on. Plus the texture is so silky! Not only do I love what this product does for my skin, I love using it. It's a beauty essential.
Doesn't really do much
This product doesn't really do much for me but that's probably because I have tiny pores. The color and packaging is really nice though, and it works well as a primer.
Бальзам просто находка для тех, у кого проблемы с расширенными порами. Имеет легкий оттенок тонального крема.Он прекрасно сглаживает кожу.Наносите только на проблемные участки.
This is brilliant, gives a smooth finish. I always use it before my foundation over my whole face, completley minimises pores. If I don't have time to use foundation I wear it alone to give a more even look to my skin.
I have noticed that it makes the skin much smoother, but the pore aspect can be a bit difficult to notice. Still, very matte.
This stuff is life-changing! I have very big pores, especially on my nose and around my T-zone, so I didn't think this stuff would be effective for me. I tried some of my mom's that she had purchased and I was so amazed at how much coverage it gave me that I had to buy a tube for myself. It makes my large pores virtually non-existent, and also eliminated most of the shine from those areas also. It's the perfect primer for my foundation, and I don't leave home without it!
Miracle Product in a bottle!
The porefessional is absolutely perfect! It has a silky texture and it translucent so anyone can wear it, and i apply just after ive moisturised across my t-zone and on my chin, re-apply around lunchtime (2pm) and it minimises my pores completely!
I've used a sample of a primer similar to this one, but Porefessional is cheaper and easier to come by. In other words, I can run to my local Ulta and grab some as opposed to sending off for it. It doesn't really do anything for my pores as I've never had large ones. However, I love how it makes my skin smooth and makes it easier to put my foundation on. Definitely a must have in every woman's makeup bag!
got two of these for christmas and im in love with it. put it on before my makeup and it made my makeup stay on all day long,reduced the appearence of all my acne scars and made my skin feel so soft and smooth. you need this in your life.
Miracle worker !
I'm 63..have a nasty scar on my cheek from having a 'naughty' mole removed...and was spending a fortune on other expensive make up....I was given a sample of POREfressional and was bowled over ! Smells good, feels like silk, it actually makes pores disappear !! The best part is it covers my scar !! I've told so many people about it ! Thankyou Benefit !!
Makes my pores disappear!!
My pores are pretty big and defiantly noticeable, I LOVE using this under my foundation, it fills in my pores so they appear a lot smaller. I don't think it helps my foundation last any longer but it has a very smooth texture.
Phenomenal Application !
This product is just so smooth and creamy! It just glides on your skin beautifully! I always put this on my face every day as a sort of primer before primers and it makes my make-up last even longer! the packaging may be a bit small but it really does last a long time! I've owned mine for almost a complete year now and I still have a lot! You don't need a lot of this product to cover the face, one of my favorite products!
I love this as a primer or just wearing alone on clean skin. Really makes your pores disappear and seems to even out my skin tone a little. Feels really lovely on the skin and is fab under foundation. I really like this product and will be buying the full size one my little mini's run out!
It really did work. I love how it gives you a Matte fine canvas finish and covering my pores looking flawless
I was a bit skeptical about this product because it...
I was a bit skeptical about this product because it sounded too good to be true. However one day at Benefit I tried it out and was so impressed! It truly covers your pores and makes such a silky smooth canvas, making foundation application so much easier and look so much nicer! I definitely recommend this product!!
smells nice, diminishes pores even better
after trying this at the benefit store i fell in love and have championed it to anyone who will listen ever since. my only complaint is that i feel like a bottle, the normal size, only lasts a month or so - and i use it pretty sparingly - so it's kind of pricey but i love it. oh, it also makes my face feel SUPER SMOOTH which is a total added bonus. and i like how mattifying it is, so if i dont want to wear full-on makeup this is perfect for just running out and de-shining
I really loved this product at first but after a while i...
I really loved this product at first but after a while i started to noticed that it doesn't last very long at all
Great on Nose & Cheeks
I have large-ish pores on my nose and cheeks. Therefore, they are still visible even after applying foundation/powder/etc. Then I bought POREfessional. No more visible pores! It looks like my nose and cheeks have been air-brushed. The product does not fade on me even at the end of the day. This is the only product I have tried that makes my pores virtually disappear. If only it would make my fine lines disappear as well :)
Favorite Primer So Far.
People are over judgmental of this product. NO primer is going to make your pores disappear. It's physically impossible. But this primer will make you makeup look smoother, last longer, and will make any bumps or imperfections less noticeable. I've tried multiple primers (veil primer, smash box, mac, etc.) and this still holds to be my favorite. (Keep in mind I'm not a heavy makeup wearer. I wear a little most days, but I'm no "MAC" girl. I don't wear this every single day but I find it great for any day I want to feel more perfect.) Favorite product.
A reliable, long lasting product.
This is a fantastic product. I first used it on my wedding day - it gave me a silky smooth base that lasted all day. I haven't looked back since. I use it on its own during the day for an even complexion and as a base for the evenings when I go a bit heavier! A 22ml tube lasts me a good 6 months too, a small bit goes a long way! Can't fault it.
Amazing for oily skin
This is like a dream. It really minimizes pores, makes my skin feel like velvet and keeps the oil away all day with out drying my skin out (I'd consider myself to have quite oily skin in the T-zone and normal skin everywhere else on my face). This works so well that I often wear this alone on my face, no other foundation as my pores are my big thing I want to cover up. This product also doesn't settle in facial lines like other products for pores that I have tried do. I never thought I'd find a product that works so well and lasts all day. A little product goes a long way and this 1 tube has lasted me almost a year with daily use.
Not for very dry skin
I have extremely dry skin and loved this product when I first got it however after two or three weeks it started to dry out my skin aloft more than what it was
This product has velvet-like covering features.
Skin becomes so silky. I should give as a present.
This product worked well for me . It goes on easily, and does not feel too heavy under my foundation. It has definitely reduced the appearance of my pores, on and around my nose.
The feeling of this product is very smooth and silky....
The feeling of this product is very smooth and silky. When applying onto the face, it's very light and blends in amazingly. However, I'm not sure why but for me it doesn't do its job by minimizing the appearance of pores. It's a great primer but just doesn't do a good job in that sense for me. Smells quite nice too. I love how it feels though. I've also noticed that it doesn't clog my pores either.
Great look ;)
I find this product so useful for either make-up face or non. I like the way it looks and feels so smooth when applying on my face. I guess it's suitalble for all kinds of skin. Definitely keep using it :D
Hola, me gustaría saber donde está la fecha de caducidad...
Hola, me gustaría saber donde está la fecha de caducidad del producto, gracias.
Great product and value for money!
I love this product and would never apply foundation without it ever. I also like wearing it alone to even out my skin tone. I have pretty large pores on my nose which I really dislike but this product does such a good job that they disappear perfectly. I'm surprised how long this product lasts too!
I have large pores on my nose which also gets very oily...
I have large pores on my nose which also gets very oily and through the day I'd notice my make up going SO patchy. I got this using just on my nose and it feels so silky soft! It doesn't work as well as I'd like it to but it does make my make up last a little longer, not as patchy and my pores less visible. Best I've tried so far!
This smoothes your skin, minimises pores and makes you look flawless! It also makes your foundation last longer during the day, which is a god-send! I would definitely recommend it to a friend
I love the overall feel of the POREfessional. It makes my skin feel silky smooth and keeps my make up in place all day giving me a flawless look & finish. This is most definately a keeper in my make up bag!
I've been using The Body Shop's tea tree pore minimizer, but gosh that is a piece of trash. It doesn't even hide a smallest pore on my face! So I was looking around internet for a better poreminimizer, and found out about porefassional. The amount of product compared to the price set me back for awhile, but I thought why not give it a shot. And it worked like miracle. It hides 85% of your visible pores and that unique silky, smooth texture makes your skin feel like a baby's butt. I'm satisfied with this product and I will definitely purchase this again. I just wish that Benefit would throw in another 8ml in there and it would even be better.
I've only been using this product for a few days and already I'm in love! I apply it before Some Kind-a Gorgeous and the combination leaves my skin feeling smooth, silky, and non-shiny/greasy. I end up getting oily in my T-zone and by midday I'd have to wipe at my nose and forehead. But I got through all of the day with minimum shine! I wish I'd stumbled across this product early; it has been a life-saver.
Can't say much ells than it's like rubbing pure unicorn tears onto your skin, it's fantastic.
POREfessional is brilliant! The texture is smooth & silky and makes my skin irresistible to touch! I apply it over my moisturised skin, followed by my 'hello flawless foundation'. The results are flawless! My skin is left matte and smooth, no signs of oily skin and my pores are less visible. Simply love it as part of my everyday regime!
Wonderful Product--Too-Small Tube
I stumbled onto this product because my local vendor had run out of Dr. Feelgood in my shade The beauty consultant recommended I try this wonderful product and I'm so very glad she did! This silky balm glides onto my skin, making my pores appear tighter and smaller than any other product I've used. In fact I have used the POREfessional product instead of makeup on some "stay home" weekends. I felt as confident as I do when I use my foundation. The only drawback to this product is the tube size. Most Benefit product amounts are generous and last forever. This product, however, should come in two sizes for those of us who don't have time to reorder every two or three months. Other than the size of the product, it is one staple I never go without. Yay POREfessional!
Makes your skin silky soft, fantastic primer and makes pores appear smaller. Love this product. A tiny amount goes a long way.
Great By Itself
Porefessional is lush. It evens out my skin tone and really does lessen the appearance of my pores. I love the fact that I can wear it alone, with a powder or foundation. It is not oily, the effects are instant and last all day. Try it, you will see and feel instant beautiful results.
Never used anything like this before, so this pretty much blew my mind. As good as the mascara!!
i love this product soooo much, it gives me a velvety finish and is very silky smooth, also it helps my pores, my makeup stays on all day, and i love this packaging i definitly recommend this product my fave go and buy it right now
Leaves my skin feeling so silky and soft.

Love the texture and the results!!
This primer is honestly the best one out there. It is really smooth and makes your skin look flawless.
I LOVE this stuff! I use this in my T-zone where my pores are larger and then I use the Hello Flawless! 15 hour primer everywhere else and it works like a dream! Love how well it fills my pores and makes them visibly disappear! I have gotten plenty of compliments on how my skin looks since using the POREfessional.
Received a sample of this and OMG!!
I have tried one Benefit product before this and HATED it so I have stayed away from this brand until I was mailed a sample of this. I love it! It really helps to minimize the look of my pores and keeps my makeup matte and helps it to last a lot longer. I will be buying the full size!
BEST PRODUCT EVER!
This could honestly be the best product I have ever used. You just put it on and it miraculously hides my HUGE pores and stays ON!!! What a true wonder this is!!!
Love this Product.
I've got large pores and breakout all the time. I use this product after i moisturise my face. It's like rubbing pearls into face, LOVE IT. It leaves my face feeling so soft and smooth. Would defiantly purchase this product again.
Don't waste your money
I had high expectations from this primer, but unfortunately none of these were met! I have average sized pores, with skin that has a tendancy to be quite oily (especially around my nose). This primer did nothing to hide my pores, and made my skin EVEN OILIER :( I recommend that you do not waste your money on this product. Sorry Benefit!!! (Still loving your other products!!) x
im sorry but i cant write a review- see more....
when I got my pacage' this product was open.... I was realy sad because I wanted so much to try it!!!
Este producto es perfecto, me acaba de llegar mi empaque a México junto con otras cosas que compre y en verdad estoy enamorada del empaque y de los productos, me llego en 6 días por DHL hasta la puerta de mi casa y este producto es perfecto te cubre perfecto los poros abiertos del rostro. Amo benefit!!!
A must have product!
I love this product! It's so silky, and immediately smooths my skin and minimizes my pores. i like to use it under my makeup or even mixed with benefit's "that gal" primer. It really is a great primer:)
Thank you I can tell you that this product is excellent. It's not heavy not difficult to use and most of all it looks natural. Friends have said my skin looks so good and I tell them about Porefessional. My face is the best advertisement I have. I love to tell people about Benefit . Thanks again Lana
Not as good as I was expecting.
I've heard so many good things about this product in magazines and from a few people so was expecting a great product. The distance was a little thick but felt very smooth when I put it on my skin and loved it. As the day went on, I noticed my skin was developing more spots which were red. Yes, I have sensitive skin, but I have never had any problem with the rest of the primers I've used. I also noticed that it clogged my pores and took a while for my akin to get back to normal after using it. Only good thing, my makeup stayed put for a good few hours. I'm just glad that I didn't pay for this and I was a gift, otherwise I would have returned it. The woman at the benefit counter was shocked when I told her about how bad it made my skin. I will continue to use some of the products because I truly think they're amazing. Please sort it out benefit! :)
Feels so silky and smooth when applying. Makes your skin feel amazing and really does minimise pores. It also evens out my skin tone.
I got this a few months ago and as i am running out i simply must rush out to buy some more. As a teenager i experiencing the time of life when your face is oily and you have giant pores and makeup just doesnt help..... but this is an absolute lifesaver it really does minimise your pores and is so smooth and silky and leaves your skin feeling moisturised. It is absolutely gorgeous buy buy buy buy buy buy it is amazing !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This product is great!
Product is easy to carry around,comes in handy when I need to use it for touch-ups after work. Great product that makes your skin smooth!
Fast & good service .i try this product on my face...
Fast & good service .i try this product on my face without makeup on & it's turned out amazing.my husband notice that my face look different & beautiful this product hide my pore & I bet anybody who use this product their face look really beautiful .
Does It Better Than Other Brands
I've tried a bunch of these pore minimizers once they started getting popular: Clarins, Loreal, Dermalogica... They all do the do the job well enough, but Benefit's is the only one where I can also use concealer. The other products get too cakey if you try to add other beauty products. Tip: If you're going to use concealer, put it on AFTER applying the pore minimizer.
This product is great!
I really like this product. I've noticed I'm not that oily in the t zone. I'm happy I gave it a chance!
A must have
I love this product. It applies easily, smells great, and lasts all day. And most importantly, I do notice a difference the visibility in my pours goes down after application.
Love this product!!
im using this everyday and it really help minimize the appearance of my big pores.. also it has a matte finish. that's what i really love!!
So glad I discovered this product!
I am 45 and have always searched for a product to help hide my very large pores and even out my skin. I finally gave up and just barely wore makeup since it wouldn't last anyway. Then my daughter brought me POREfessional! Now I love to put makeup on! I usually don't say something is a miracle, but to me this is! I moisturize, apply this product then alpply Benefit flawless powder makeup with the sponge. My complexion has NEVER looked this good! I will never be without either one! My skin is a little dry- enough to have some flakiness on my cheeks so I have to apply moisturizer first. I highly recommend this product!
not my favorite
I love Benefit and I have almost all their products! But the Porefessional didn't impress me that much. What bothers me about this product is the scent. It is too strong like a cheap lotion smell. It doesn't smoothen my complexion better than my other high end primers.
Let's see, where do I start? Well first of all, I can't live without this and as soon as I run out I will be purchasing another! It literally made my foundation seem like a whole new foundation, one that lasted 10x longer and made it so much smoother and even made my foundation do a better job covering the redness in my cheeks than by itself! I was about to give up on finding the perfect face primer until this one. I've tried about 5 others and none locked in my foundation and made it preform as well as this! Well done, Benefit, you NEVER let me down :)
Everything a girl could wish for and more!
I love the POREfessional primer, it minimises my pores and leaves my skin silky and soft. I have also noticed that when I have used this product my skin is less oily and my makeup lasts throughout the day. I think that this product is a must have for anyone that wishes their pores were not so visible. Most primers are for oily skin, but I love that Benefit have thought about other concerns that women have. It is my must have makeup item. Follow me on dulcelissa.wordpress.com
Where'd my pores go?!
I LOVE the porefessional. It works amazingly to smooth my skin, mattify, and WOW it does a disappearing act with pores. I do wish it made my makeup last longer though- haven't seen a huge difference in that aspect. I will repurchase!
makes an obvious difference
Sceptical, sceptical me had this applied during a Benefit make-over session as a primer (mixed with 'That Girl', I believe) and quite honestly was amazed at the difference it made. I've got very dry, sensitive skin which gets outraged at a variety of different make-up but it loves this stuff and, vaguely alarmingly, I've had both friends and colleagues wandering up and telling me how good my skin looks. To the point where I've been wondering at my former hagness. It does make my face lovely, smooth and soft - in short, exactly what it says on the tube - and a little goes a long way.
Would never buy again
I thought this product was going to be fantastic, I got it home, and used it... but i didnt really see a difference on my skin. Okay, so it smells and feels fantastic on your skin... but it blocks your pores without making much difference, leaving you with clogged pores, and unfortunately spots. i was so disappointed because i love my benefit products - i will not be buying this again.
I use this primer for two years now and it's my big love. It's so smooth and just amazing. I really recommend it.
I was really excited to use this product. It feels silky smooth on the skin and does cover up pores. But throughout the day it just comes off, and when you go to touch it up it creates a uneven texture over the days makeup. Making the skin look 10x worse. I bought the oxygen foundation along side this and they both just seem to wipe clean off the face if touched through out the day. :(
surprisingly pleasant and effective
just bought this 2 days ago and i cannot leave home without it !! covers all my pores and fine lines. and i can dab on anytime i need to refresh the make-up (it's hot and humid here) love this product!
Ótimo para peles oleosas
Olá a todos! Escrevo aqui para alertar a todos que usam primer do exterior (sou do Brasil) e, às vezes, ficam sem saber aonde comprar. Conheço e uso diariamente o primer POREfessional da Benefit. Sempre comprei em sites confiáveis do exterior. É ótimo para pele oleosa. Comprei o último pelo Mercado Livre. A embalagem é perfeita, mas o conteúdo é outro. É muito fácil identificá-lo, pois tem um cheiro gostoso e um toque aveludado. O falsificado não tem cheiro e a pele fica pegajosa. Espero contribuir para que outros não sejam enganados como fui. A sensação é horrível.
It Is really amazing, i have marks from acne, but whit...
It Is really amazing, i have marks from acne, but whit this product i am feel more confidence .... any marks on my face.... soooo require!!
I adore it!
OMG the best Benefit product next to "Hello Flawless". I had read so many great reviews on this that I decided to go in the store and ask for a sample to try, before I spent out on a tube. I was kindly given two samples to take home to try, but decided, while there, to just try it on. Well...........I was sold right away, I bought it there and then. It is amazing! I went out make-up free and instantly looked air-brushed and glowing! I cannot wait to try it with my "Hello Flawless" powder over the top. And also my new other Benefit products, 'They're Real' mascara and 'Fine one-one' another two amazing products! Today has been a real 'Benefit shopping day' for me :P
I've only been using this product about a month and I'm hooked. I have large pores on my tzone. Especially bad on my nose and cheeks and this stuff is perfect! I apply before my makeup, and then dab a little more on my problem areas after I have applied my powder foundation. It seriously is just perfection. And I love how smooth it goes on.
Minimises lines as well as pores
Not only does this product get rid of pores, it also minimises wrinkles! I was dabbing it onto one side of my forehead one morning and noticed that on that side, there were no forehead creases any more, they'd just disappeared! When I put porefressional on the other side, the lines went from that side too. A friend commented that I looked so calm and stress-free these days... I didn't reveal my secret.
leaves face SUPER smooth
I LOVE this product. It is by far the best benefit product ever. It leaves my face super smooth and flawless its a great base for foundation (especially the hello flawless oxygen wow). I wear it every day. Another thing I like is it suits all skin colors.
love it <3
I have extremely oily and sensitive skin.....i was recommended the POREfessional and well now i cant leave home without it! I apply it before any makeup application and my skin looks sooo much better then it ever has....i have even received lots of compliments that my face and makeup look better then usual lately... even with my sensitive skin that makes me break out to everything I haven't seen any reactions from this product at all!
I, like others, were hesitant... but a makeup expert friend of mine told me that 'must get it'. So, I did. And WOW. Seriously, I'll never, ever, ever be without it. Sometimes I think my pores have pores, they're SO big, no matter what I do to clean em' out... they're the size of a house, and I can spot them in a mirror feet away (maybe a slight sarcastic, but not much!) I tried it asap after getting it, already with makeup on. Wow...WOW!!!!!! It is incredibly silky, and I used the smallest amount humanly possibly on the tip of my nose. My pores were virtually gone, especially after applying my mineral foundation lightly over it. My skin does look smoother. My chin and next to my nose are the next biggest "pored', and voila! I look 5 years younger, easily. *Cause let's admit it, ladies, big pores make us look like a grandma* yay for Porefection!!!
I can't live without this product! Just ran out so have to wait until it arrives in the mail. Did not think to order sooner. Silly me. By far (in my eyes) the best Benefit makeup product out there. I <3 this!
Awesome Product! LOVE IT!
I've never bought a make up that actually fits my skin perfectly and I've watched a lot of YouTube makeup tutorials are using Benefit POREfessional and I got curious and bought it in Myer (Perth) because it's the only store that sells Benefit Cosmetics Products and immediately tried and wore it on my face, I'm surprise that it makes my face really smooth and silky and really minimize the appearance of pores and my face looks almost flawless, from that day, I become a HUGE Benefit Cosmetics fan and bought loads of Benefit Products from this website (because it's much cheaper and it offers free shipping) and saved a lot of money!
Not what I hoped for
I came into Sephora, wanting to try the POREfessional and walked out with a kit containing it and a few other products. I woke up the next morning and went to put it on, and it looked fine. I looked at my face right as I got into the car and my pores were 10x bigger than they were before. I was a bit mad because I heard so much good things about it like it was "a holy grail product" , "It's the best makeup item out there" etc. so I had high hopes for it. Very dissapointed and will not purchase full size.
I love how it makes my skin feel smooth~
My pores are quite noticeable and I can see a difference. You need to make sure it's rubbed in properly or it does have an odd texture. I find that it is a great primer for make up, it doesnt last all day and I have to re touch but my skin is fairly oily so this may be the reason why! Over all I really like this product but It is quite pricy for what it is.
Great but be careful what you put on top of it!
Overall, a great product that does the job in evening out my skintone. I had a little issue with it slipping around on my face when I tried to apply foundation on top and going a bit cakey, but the problem solved by using my fingers to dab it on lightly instead of a foundation brush.
Does as it says!!
I really like using this product because it is ideal on my pores and it works great with day time and night time looks.
This Product has GREAT Texture
I love the packaging and also i love the way it feels silky once it is rubbed in. I use it on my problem areas and you really can tell a difference.
I was dubious about purchasing this at first due to the fact that I didn't realise it was a primer but boy I'm glad I did. Even with a small amount applied my skin looked brighter and a lot smoother. It is now a solid part of my make up regime and if I don't use it you can tell the difference.
I have normal to oily skin and I refuse to apply any makeup without starting out with POREfection. The product is so effective that only the tiniest amount is needed. By hiding my pores without clogging them, this product gives me the perfect base to go on with applying the rest of my face.
Pores? What Pores?
One day when I was laying around with my daughter who was eight at the time, (I was in my late thirties), she says to me,"Mommy, what are all those dots on your nose?" and I answered, "Freckles Honey, just like you have..." She kind of giggled at me and says, "No Mommy, not the brown freckle dots! The HOLES in your nose!" I was so embarrassed, because if my little girl could notice my pores so easily, that meant EVERYONE could notice them as easily! Quite honestly, pores were something I had really never thought about, other than clogged pores or unclogged pores thanks to Biore' strips, but noticeable pores? Truly, I had never really given it a thought! Till then of course. Thankfully my daughter bringing the matter to my attention though was right on trend, because when I went into my local beauty store a few days later it seemed every popular make-up brand carried some kind of "pore" filler! Since I had typically had success with other Benefit products I decided upon "the POREfessional", and let me tell you, I've never looked back! As for those dots on my nose, they are again my freckles, and freckles are all you see now, ask my daughter, she'll answer honestly! Thank you Benefit! A grateful Mom
Does what it says on the box!
I used that gal for a while and don't get me wrong, I do still love it but for my skin this is more suitable, lots of pores. It does cover them and my skin looks and feels silky smooth once applying my foundation, even without foundation I have no complaints!
A Girls Daily Essential.
Primer Perfection! This little bad boy is a must have product, I would recommended to everyone. *Snaps Fingers* disguises pores in a flash, they instantly appear smaller and are less noticeable. It is a pleasure to put on every morning, when used it is like rubbing your face against silk. Overall great product, lasts long when worn everyday and is suitable for numerous skin types. Thoroughly love this product and cannot recommended it enough!

havent ever used anything that would mattify my skin as well as this did <3 and I love the scent too
never have a bad make up day again
I hate it when my make up doesn't absorb into my skin and sits on it looking heavy which even sometimes the best make up does. But with the Porefessional even the worst make up day is over, especially if you exfoliate and follow with Benefit's triple performing facial emulsion before applying your porefessional and then foundation. It is gorgeously lightweight and is the perfect base for any make up (although I don't think it makes a difference on its own to your look without make up and I would never wear it rather than foundation) . This gives you such soft flawless smooth skin and your make up will look perfect. My only issue is the bottle isn't huge so I'd advise you to get the bigger bottle.
This product is amazing
Porefessional truley does minimise the appearance of pores, and i find i can use it as a foundation when i cant be bothered to apply foundation in the morning. it makes my skin look clear and feel smooth, love it! however it is a bit expensive.
makes the pores vanish!!
It is like a miracle that goes in a bottle! It make disappear the pores in my T-zone perfectly, and leaving a really nice silky sensation... My mother is a real fan of this product since the first time we bought it! Must-have!
I love this product. When I apply this on, my skin feels so silky and smooth. I always had problems with pores. I have large, visible pores but thanks to the Porefessional, majority is flawlessly covered. I would highly recommend this product to anyone who needs pore coverage!
Big Pores Begone
This is magic in a bottle. I tested this product at Sephora several years back and had to wait for my other primer, Philosophy's the Present, to run out. I use this with That Gal and the results are so much better. Sorry Philosophy!
Not what I expected
After seeing so many video reviews & reading amazing reviews about this products i decided to buy it & besides Benefit its my fav make up brand. I was so excited bout this products because i had been looking for a primer. I thought this would be perfect for my dry skin. This primer only made me oily & didnt minimize my pores. I tried applying this primer in every way trying to make it work. I will be returning this product.
Can't live without it!
I recently just purchased the POREfessional, ITS THE BEST PRODUCT when it comes to minimizing pores, I've tried other and none works like the POREfessional....and now I CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT IT! thank you benefit! :)
I used a sample and had no problem but when I bought the...
I used a sample and had no problem but when I bought the product and used it for a couple of days, my face became swollen, bluised looking, splotched all over, and an alergic reaction and still after 5 days has not completely cleared up.
Go buy this now
I don't ever review things online (this is my first time), but this product is so great I had to. My pores on my nose and upper cheeks have been horrid for quite a while, and I don't know how, but this just makes them disappear!! This is stuff from heaven, I swear. It lasts a while too-you might need one touch up during the day, might being the key word. I put it on right before using "hello flawless" foundation, and the combination of the two makes my skin look amazing. Even my grandma loves the POREfessional. Yay for Benefit!!
Not worth the price
After using this product for a week I have seen no difference to the apperance of my pores or my make-up's staying power. After hearing so many good reviews I thought I would give it a try, hoping that it would give the stated results as the price just seemed ridiculous for something that wouldn't work. Much to my dismay, my worst fears came true; my hard earned money was wasted on a product that did nothing for my make-up and even made my foundation appear cakey and made it look as if it had sunk into my pores thus highlighting them. I would NOT recomend this product; definatley not worth the hype.
Only tried it a few times but I am impressed
I only got this a few days ago after it was brought to my attention by one of the delightful girls at the benefit counter, and by gosh I can see why it is their second best seller. I've never used a primer in the past but I am now a convert (providing it doesn't break my skin out like it has with some of my other friends). deepest lines (a worrying thing at the tender age of 19) enlarged pores are no problem for this stuff, and it sets my make up beautifully, keeps shine far at bay, a problem that I have a lot, and works well enough to be used with just a concealer and setting powder for a low effort face, initial impressions... recommend it strongly
This product is just amazing, it leaves your skin feeling so smooth. I always recommend it to people!
Leaves my skin silky and smooth!
What a brilliant primer! I love the smooth texture of the product and the way it primes my face ready for my foundation. I also love the great fragrance of the primer! Just be careful not to use too much because it can become bitty on your skin! If your debating on buying this just splash out and you won't regret it!
Make-up Bag Essential
When I first bought this product I was sceptical as I thought it was too good to be true BUT it is one of THE BEST Benefit products I have ever purchased. I use it before I put on the rest of my make-up and it completely sinks in but also reduces the size of the pores around my T-Zone without being oily and sticky. Since I have started wearing it, several people have mentioned how smooth my skin looks and I now recommend it to everyone as it is my new favourite Benefit product.
Silky smooth essential!
I first tried this when I ordered a They're Real! mascara and a POREfessional was sent along as a sample. I wasn't sure of whether something could work as well as this sounded like it would work, but I give any product a sporting chance since I love trying new things and I must say, I was VERY impressed! I started by smoothing it on my hand and I was amazed at how it evened the skintone and it went down like powdered silk - so incredibly smooth! So I purchased a kit that included POREfessional in a full sized container and I gave it a real go. The main two things it seems to do is: 1) It minimizes pores in an incredible way. I have a very oily T-zone and it's prone to large pores and ugly blackheads. This product really helped give my nose a chance to stand out for something besides ugly pores! 2) It evened my skintone out a lot. I know that this functions as a primer as well as a during-the-day touchup and it really helped even out the blotchy unevenness on my face. That alone is a fantastic thing for a product to do! It's worth mentioning though that this particular product is definitely best for a more matte look. If you're hoping for a very dewy look, this product will probably steal away some of that glow, but for a smooth, flawless, shine-free look, this is incredible. I prefer using a little in the morning and a tiny touch up during the day. As a bonus, it has a very nice smell! If you're the type who does not want any scent in your products, this might be one to try in sample size before you invest in a full size - it does have a very bright, almost tropical smell about it. The scent is definitely not overwhelming and it does wear off fairly quickly, but it's noticeable. Definitely a great product to keep in your makeup bag for middle-of-the-day shine removal!
My initial thoughts of this product had been - Waste of money and felt disapointed. I carried on using for over a week and still felt the same, with that i left it unloved in my make up bag. It was only till i randomly gave it a second chance a week or so later that infact it had helped my make up stay put and my skin less oily and irratable round my nose. I have to admit you can't tell at first but its when you stop using it that you realise the difference it makes. Love this product and bought the bigger one this time.
I use this every day on my nose, where I have the biggest pores, but also on my cheeks (right under my eyes) where the pores are a bit bigger and I tend to be oilier, on special occasions. I have acne-prone skin, so I'm always afraid to put primer on, for fear of blocking pores. This doesn't seem to make me break out, however. I bought a tube several months ago, and still have a ton left--it doesn't take much for it to work!
Excellent for oily skin
This is great to put on in the morning under makeup really helps with the oily/ shiny t zone.its very humid is Australia here at the moment and this is my lifesaver!
The first time I tried this primer was in the little benefit kit I bought off Sephora called "One Prime Day". The deluxe sample I received lasted me a while because a little goes a long way! After running out, I went & bought myself a full-size. I'm literally obsessed with this primer. I like to concentrate this more around my nose area & whatever I have left, I smooth over the rest of my face.
Very unique product
this product is amazing. I was introduced to it initially about 6 months ago as I have oily skin with dry patches and nothing seemed to help keep my make up on for more than two hours! This is amazing. It evens out your skin tone and complexion and is the best base ever. It's like no other primer you will buy! I use with hello flawless oxygen wow and the hello flawless powder, which makes my skin look healthy and fresh even when it isn't!
No more visible pores!
I have some pretty big pores in my t-zone and I decided to give this a shot. So glad I did! My pores have practically vanished! Even after I remove my makeup I swear my pores are still less visible!
Been using this product for more than a year and I'm...
Been using this product for more than a year and I'm still loving it. It can cover my pores well. I liked that it protects my pore from make up products. I have very sensitive skin but this product doesn't do any harm to my skin.
This product litrualy does what it says on the tube! Id never thought id get something to prevent oily skin! but this works an absolute treat! I have very spot prone, oily skin and this helps my skin so much and i feel fresh all day, when normally my skin feels gross after a couple of hours! It definately helps with covering up your pores and and leaves the skin so so soft! Definately a must for the make-up bag ladies! Also, the tube doesnt seem very big, although it lasts ages!! worth the money!
This product works excellent especially when you put a small amount on the back of your hand, let the body heat warm up the product a bit, then using clean sponge, gently dab it in on your nose and cheeks right beside your nose where pores tend to be bigger. I usually let it dry completely then smooth the complexion using face powder. It really makes my skin look a LOT smoother and younger with minimized pores. I really love the product.
I usually am in LOVE with all of benefit's cosmetics, they are so high quality and the packaging is to die for! But this one was my least favorite. I have very oily skin with acne, and i was hoping that it would help reduce shine and keep my makeup on for longer and it truly did the opposite of that. Maybe it's just my bad skin, but it would make my face too "silky" and none of the makeup would stick because it would slide off! I tried and tried to use it different ways to make it work but eventually gave up, pass this one up girls, it's not worth it!
Wow. I love it!
I've had really big pores in the T-Zone. And with this product they are disappeard. I'm so happy :) I read many reviews about this product. As first I wasn't so sure if the POREfessional would work at my oily skin. But it's really great. My skin is total mattified. I'm soooo happy :) It's really the best primer.
Nice smooth finish.
I bought this product after reading tons of reviews, most of them favourable. My skin isn't really problematic and my pores aren't all that large but I still wanted to give it a shot to see if it really did give a silky appearance to my skin. The texture is great and it compliments all skin tones and keeps oily areas fairly dry. I like it, but I am not crazy about it. It does a pretty good job, though.
Love this product
I got this product as part of the limited edition Snow White and the Huntsman kit. I love this product! I didn't think it would blend well on me because I am VERY fair skinned but it matches perfectly. I am not to keen on wearing foundation because I live in a dry climate and foundation tends to look cakey on my dry skin. I just wear this now and a little bit of concealer and my face is flawless. To be honest, the amazing job that this product does has spurred my obsession with Benefit Cosmetics.
this is a fantastic multi purpose makeup primer! i use using it under my foundation and it provides an even, smooth foundation application. even on it own right away it diffuses my pores and uneven skin tone. if i'm lazy i can get away with this alone. also sometimes during the day i might reapply it over foundation to remattify and freshen up. it does an excellent job. tip- if you are putting this OVER makeup, tap it in, don't rub. it makes a huge difference.
Not up to the hype
This is not a bad product at all but I don't think it lives up to all the hype surrounding it. I also think the product is very over priced when there are other primers on the market that do the same thing much better value. I still love benefit cosmetics but won't be repurchasing
Feels beautiful, but doesn't live up to the hype.
This feels amazing when put on before my foundation but I find it only covers my pores when I put it on over my makeup. As a primer, it doesn't have the holding power of That Gal but it does feel nicer on my skin. It works best for me when I use That Gal as my primer, put on my Hello Flawless and then cover my pores with Porefessional. It does however last a long time as you have to use so little of it, even when used all over as Primer.
I absolutely love this primer It dries into a silky smooth layer perfect for applying foundation on top and keeps your makeup on all day . I love how u can apply it on top of your makeup as well to keep your skin mattifyed . I really recommend the product for everyone !
This is an amazing product.
This is an amazing product. Using it with Hello Flawless foundation and powder gives the most fantastic look. Covers so well and leaves your skin feeling really soft and smooth all day.
This product is so good! my skin has never looked and felt so good
Best product to minimize pores!!!
Wow, wow, wow! I wasn't so sure if the POREfessional would actually work for me because I have pretty big pores. You don't need a lot. I use it for my entire face. It leaves your face smooth and mattified and of course minimizes your pores. Totally love it. Wish it would come in a bigger tube though.
The Worst Benefit Product I've Ever Bought
I have been a fan of benefit makeup for many years now and had wanted to purchase this product for a long time - I have the hugest pores in the world and nothing works on them. After reading so many good reviews, my product arrived in the post a couple of days ago. I have used the product three times and each time, I see no difference in my skin, my pores are as huge and noticeable as ever. I really don't think this product is up to the same standards as many of benefits others and the only reason I can find for so many good reviews is that the people using the product perhaps don't actually have big problem pores like mine?
I have suffered from acne since the age of 11. I am now...
I have suffered from acne since the age of 11. I am now 44 years old. My Mom really didn't know what to do so by the time I was an adult and was able to do something about it myself, I was left with major acne scars. Along with pocked skin I also have freckles and enlarged pores. THIS IS THE ONLY PRODUCT TO GIVE ME A RESULT I AM HAPPY WITH. I absolutely love what this product does to my face. My friends have also noticed and compliment my face on a regular (something that has never happened). This product is so perfect that I wear it alone and I still get the same compliments from my friends. Please never discontinue this product!!
Great product to use
All I can tell this product is amazing. When I applied this on my face, my pores were minimized. I felt my skin is smoother than other products that I used. I definitely will repurchase this product.
For gorgeous looking & feeling skin
This product is porefect! The great thing about this product (and a lot of other Benefit products) is you only need a tiny amount so this tube will last a very long time. The product itself is brilliant - it makes pores appear to disappear, it blends on perfectly and leaves your skin feeling so smooth. I love using this - it always makes me feel flawless, like I've been airbrushed! Benefit sell this in a mini so if your not sure whether this product is for you or not buy that first - it will last weeks
i do love using this product. my foundation (hello flawless) applies perfectly ontop of this. i do however struggle to find something to help hold my foundation on my skin all day, and this doesn't fully keep me covered all day. but it is a great product to help with foundation application!
This product works!!
I couldn't believe how well this product works. You truly see your pores shrink in seconds. It works well under or above foundation and it makes my face feel silky smooth.
This is a great product. I was introduced to it when a sales assistant (who was serving my teenaged daughter) dabbed some on the back of my hand to demonstrate how it would soften fine lines. I am now a total convert. I had thought that Benefit was just for 'youngsters' but this product is by far far the best I've tried for disguising those unwelcome signs of age; crepiness and lines. It's fab.
I love this primer! I use it with "Hello Flawless"...
I love this primer! I use it with "Hello Flawless" foundation. The combo is perfect. I just recently switched to Benefit (after using BareMinerals for many years) and I'm happy that I did. I have larger pores and combination skin, so the primer does a great job of minimizing the appearance of my pores as well as giving me an all over matte finish. It is also really lightweight, which is one of my favorite things about the product. After I apply the primer, I apply the foundation with a brush and voila... perfect skin and the make up stays on all day. I highly recommend this product!
So amazing! my pores totally disappeared after i put this all over my face and pairing it with Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow was the perfect combo! My skin feels healthy with the perfect glow and i now have a nice smooth complexion. Its so cute and i love it!!
perfect for imperfections and pore cover ups
I was looking for something to disguise pores on my cheeks and as I am a big fan of Benefit, I called into a store and the Benefit sales assistance could not be more helpful, she pointed out less is more and showed me how to apply the product for the best result, I just use a very small amount over the problem areas it would be hard to compare this any other products out there, But it hides pores and is so light and silky and looks 100% natural. It give a kind of dewy look without looking false, its very clever and it kind of evens out the skin surface, the colour I would say would just match any skin tone. I have had the same 22ml tube for two months and use it all the time.
I have been using Benefit make up religiously for four years now, but was still sceptical about purchasing Porefessional. I have quite deep pores on my cheeks, and forever been covering these up with more foundation. Porefessional gets rid of these pores, and is so light that it doesn't clog them. I mix mine with my Flawless foundation for an all round coverage. Best make up product I've bought for a while!
testing to see what facebook connect looks like here.
I have used this stuff under a bareminerals foundations, a Nars liquid foundation, and just plain old bare skin. If you use it underneath a mineral foundation it sets it perfectly! Under liquid it works just fine, and it always makes my pores look smaller and less noticeable! I love this product!
I've used this product almost every single day for years! Makes my skin feel velvety smooth, and some days I wear it alone for a fresh & clean look!
I had been using the "That Gal" primer for a while and saw this product in a new set, I was about to buy the set but the lady at the Benefit counter suggested I sit down so she could test the colours in the set. They were just not right for me! But Porefessional was just superb, after applying just that my face was already looking flawless. I proceeded to buy just that and was made up because I got a free sample of something else as well (in a cardboard tube?!) You can imagine how excited I was going to be on Monday morning applying this for work. After arriving home I discovered that the bag from Boots was not in the multiples we had and has somehow gotten lost in the train journey home. Gutted doesn't quite cover it! I'm going to have to wait until christmas now to have another splurge and am devestated that my skin is not going to look this good between now and then! Hopefully someone has handed it into lost property!
I was really excited to try this product because of all the great reviews and I do have very large pores and an oily T-zone. When first applying this product it does what it says, goes on smooth and eliminates oil. The effects are only temporary though, I was hoping for something that would help my makeup stay all day and prevent oil from appearing in the afternoon , but the effects seemed to only last for about an hour. I have not yet found a product to help with my oily skin problem. I felt the need to review this product because of all the hype around it and how amazing it is, I feel I have wasted my money.
Your face will fell better than silk!
This product blends into the skin so well, improves the appearance so much and feels like nothing else. This is the best of the best! It is tinted so I can even skip the foundation if I am pressed for time because I would rather wear the Porefection!
Went in to boots today to find a good foundation that lasts and got asked if i needed any help with anything and i said im just looking for a nice foundation with nice coverage and she sat me down and put on the POREfessional with some of there foundation also and my skin feels so nice and and soft and smooth and im definitely getting some when i get paid it lasted me all day while i was at work and feels very light and just so soft i love it :)
It does what it says on the package
I am always reserved about new products and the promises on the packaging. This is a totally amazing find, it's a primer, concealer and all round excellent cream for your face. As others have indicated, there is always a great smell with Benefit products.
Didn't work for me
I used Porefessional with the Wow foundation and my skin became like an oil well. I didn't change anything in my skin care routine or any skin care products. Also, it did not help my make up last any longer than usual, it wore off pretty quickly probably because my skin was an oil slick during this time. My skin is not normally oily.
OMG this stuff is amazing i have very dry skin and i put this on right before i put my " hello oxygen wow" foundation and it makes my skin look so smooth and soft. i highly recommend this product
smooth finish, perfect primer
This is one of the few products from Benefit I am really happy with. It is so smooth that the skin is completely ready for make-up. It is easy to apply evenly on the skin, especially around the nose and chin area. And it is much more moisturizing than Dr. Feel Good, so good for dry skin. This is the best make-up product from Benefit, I think.
AS SMOOTH AS A BABY'S BOTTOM
I love this so so so much! It's a beautiful matte finish, minimizes pores, makes make up appear so flawless. Will be buying again!
I have combination skin which unfortunately includes blackheads on my nose and enlarged pores at the side of my nose. This product makes the pores seemingly close and vanish and when finished with some concealer/foundation and powder, you can't see the blackheads at all. I know this product only masks them, but that's fine by me!! The minute I get blackheads out they come back anyway so I need coverage and this product delivers. It makes the rest of my skin feel silky but matte and my BB cream goes on top nicely, creating a flawless finish. Highly recommended for problem/combination skin, even mature skin (I'm 38).
i have so many noticeable pores on my nose and next to my nose, but when i put this on, it instantly covers them up! its amazing! and the texture is just so perfect. it literally feels like im rubbing silk on my face! annddd i have VERY sensitive skin and this doesnt make me break out!
okay for me
it certainly works to minimize pores but i don't have serious problems of pores and a bit of primer will just do the same job so i think it's just not the product for me. clogs pores and causes zits occasionally. love the silky touch though. fun name! lol
I am totally in love with this stuff! I've gone thru a million beauty products and this is just the best thing yet! I dont even have to put anything else on! just put it on and a little concealer and blush and I'm set for the day!
Silky smooth primer!
I love this primer! It has an incredibly silky, smooth texture and a great scent - lemony/fresh. It mattifies my skin and reduces the appearance of pores. After applying Porefessional, my skin feels amazing and soft. This is a great primer with a fabulous texture. Yay for Porefessional!!
Brilliant when right technique is used
When I first purchased this I thought it was rubbish. But I then discovered a technique which made it really work!! All those who say it does nothing for pores - you are very much wrong!! Place a pea sized amount of product onto your index finger and place a small amount onto where you have pores, you may need more depending how many pores you have on your face. To apply it you must tap it into the pores then after about 20 seconds rub it in using circular motions. Masks pores AND helps your make up stay on longer :-) amazing product!
While it doesn't always hide my pores, it does provide an incredibly silky, even foundation for the rest of my makeup. It's that little extra that gives my skin an amazing evenness and texture.
Best pore minimizer I've ever used
Awesome product!! I bought it last year (July), and I still have a lot of product left... A little goes a long way, a tube should last you 13-14 months. Love it, even bought one for my mom!
Best I've tried!!!!
This product is amazing!!! It's the best thing I've ever tried along with the hello flawless compact powder foundation.I have very oily/ spot prone skin and the porefessional does not break me out!! It keeps me looking my best all day! A product I've only just discovered and now I can't live without!!! I love, love, love it! Thankyou Benefit!!! X
The best thing since anything!
This has changed my life, I have oily skin and large pores and this covers them up better than any foundation, concealer or primer I have ever tried. I use it on it's own and don't need to bother with foundation as it makes my skin look smooth, healthy and bright. i love the texture of it and my skin feels fresh and not oily at all, all day! I will never look back! Thank you Benefit!
Love this stuff so much!!!
Only used it a few times but each time I do it feels amazing, I wear make up everyday and since I have been using this amazing potion my make up looks so much better and if I dare say less false. The best discovery I have made.
Worked great on the areas of my t-zone that are more oily...
Worked great on the areas of my t-zone that are more oily (and have lgr pores); but on the dry apples of my cheeks, I could still see the small pores. Afraid I was being fooled by how well it matted the oily areas, I gave it the ultimate test; my mother. The pores on her nose are (forgive me) jumbo sized. Impressive! It was like a magician said tah-dah, and her pores disappeared; along with my tube of porefessional - quess she was impressed too-thanks mom...
My Favorite Primer!
I have noticeable pores and after countless hours reading reviews and watching videos online, I decided to give it a shot. First off, I love the way it feels. Its so smooth, like velvet. A little bit goes a long way. I apply it on my fingers and dab on the product on my t-zone. I sweep it upwards with my fingers so it purposely fill in the pores and then just rub my face to spread the product. It really does an amazing job under and over foundation. It works well alone too. It keeps my t-zone anti-shine for a few hours. Most importantly, the appearance of my pores. It definitely softens the look. It just works so well!
Takes primers to a whole new level!
I was completely happy with my current primer when the lady at the benefit counter told me about this product, but as soon as she rubbed some on the back of my hand, I was sold. Not only does it hide pores, it does a magic trick of going from a liquidy paste to a smooth velvety finish. It is incredible and foundation will just glide over it.
Such a difference!
I LOVE this product because it makes my face silky smooth and makes my makeup stay put ALL day! Under makeup, it works as a great primer and does minimize the appearance of pores. But, over my makeup, it REALLY minimizes the appearance of my pores which my makeup can't even do! I will absolutely buy this product again.
Fast becoming best beauty product ever!!!
I love this product, as you may have guessed by the title! Makes my skin tone more even- reducing the pores particularly on my nose. BUT the reason I like it most of all is that having reached nearer 40 than 30 (but not officially you understand :-)) It disguises those fine ish lines that have recently appeared. Use with a product that increases radiance and look even younger. Rock and roll!!!
I honestly don't know what they use to make this stuff, and I really don't care! It's the best thing on earth! I have some big pores that are quite obvious, and nothing I've tried in the past have gotten rid of them. Whenever I wanted to put on a full face with concealer, foundation, bronzer, etc, I couldn't quite accomplish that perfect skin I was spending all that money for. Until I fatefully ran into this! It was a sample size from one of those monthly beauty shipments and I fell in LOVE! Seriously, the second I put it on my face, my pores were GONE. Not only that, but it is so smooth, silky, it doesn't even feel like you're even touching anything. It creates the perfect base for my face before putting anything on. It does such wonders to your face and makes the application of the rest of your face so easy. On that note, sometimes I wear it alone, just so that my skin looks smooth. It's so amazing, you just may mistake yourself for a mannequin!
Best Benefit Primer
I've never used a primer so I bought this at the POREfessional event. After using it a couple times, I decided against it one day. NEVER AGAIN! I had no idea what a difference primer made and this one is amazing. It's weightless, you don't need a lot, and instead of just prepping the skin it actually fills in pores and fine lines. Who doesn't want skin that looks as smooth as slik?
Lovely oil-reducing primer
This was sold to me as a pore-perfecter but after I purchased I realised it was also a primer. I use a very small amount on my t-zone after moisturiser and before foundation. I have oily skin that gets shiny a few hours in to the day. Since using this product I can last the whole day! (have a dewy look but can certainly get away without powdering!) The consistency is quite unusual - it feels oily but it's not at all - completely oil free - it simply has a silky texture. It is quite pricey for the amount you get but a little goes a long way. It also smells nice (I have tried some primers that smell horrid and you can tell its on your face all day). Anyway I would highly recommend this product as an oil-controlling primer
This works amazing for face piercings..
I have had my nose pierced since I was a teen... I no longer wear noes rings and I have had to live with the hole on the side of my nose.. I got sample of this in my birchbox. It is a miracle!!! I put this on my nose to hide pores and the hole in my nose it looks like I have no piercing hole!!! IDK if anyone else has tried the product for this reason alone but I will continue to buy and use it for that!! Thanks Benefit from the bottom of my heart!!!
A new me
The first time I applied the POREfessional on my face I couldn't believe the result. Visible pores weren't my main concern, but it really worked as promised and took all the oil away! It does matify the skin and prepares it for all the products you want to use after it - when it's summer, I don't apply too many, for my skin already looks great after a touch of the POREfessional mixed with That Gal, as Annie suggests. ;)
oh god do not buy this! at the beginning.. its amazing.. and then basically i worked out that it minimizes your pores by filling them with this stuff, so now my skin is actually ruined, so many spots! It is ok to wear sometimes, but i think wearing it everyday just ruins your skin! So sad! :(
This product was not as good as expected.
I recently used the POREfessional on my face. To be quite honest it was not as good as I expected. Number one it didn't seem to make any difference to my pores/complexion even though I applied it as written in the description. Number two my makeup only lasted about 2 hours. Overall I wasn't very pleased with the product, but the packaging is cute.
I never really understood the need for a primer until i received this as a gift. I have quite oily skin naturally and my makeup literally just melted off throughout the day. I always assumed this was due to the brand of makeup not catering for oily skin but since i began using this my makeup wear is extended by about 3-4 hours. Not only that, it aims to also minimize pores. At 20, i don't have this issue but If it does what it claims many woman would be extremely happy. For me it is a pleasure to apply makeup over and controls all the excess oil.
Feels great, not good for pores though!
This feels silkly and smooth, glides on and makes your skin feel great. Downsides: Doesn't do a thing for pores & tube doesn't last long. Sadly, this is a let down. As doesn't do anything any cheap primer (Avon) could do.
This product is just amazing! I love it!! It makes my...
This product is just amazing! I love it!! It makes my skin looking perfect anytime.....It helps me to improve the texture of my skin, which is silky smooth for almost whole day.....recommend!!! :)
I have tried every primer out there and this one beats them all. It creates a silky-smooth canvas for my foundation and really helps it stay put all day. It also works great on blemishes, helping to smooth them out so they blend in seamlessly under makeup. I highly recommend this to anyone and everyone, regardless of skin type.
I have to say, I have been only a MAC girl for the last several years and have only recently re-discovered your products. It started with erase paste and some-kinda-gorgeous foundation faker and now I can't stop trying and buying other products. I bought the POREfessional balm in a sample size off a website to try it out and it is AMAZING! Coming from someone with oily-dry skin with acne (that is now clearing up, thanks to your non-irritating products) I don't think I will ever try another makeup again! Thank you!
The product is extremely silky, and I love the way it spreads--a little really goes a long way. I haven't really noticed a significant decrease in pore size (though my pores aren't huge, anyway), but I have noticed that it makes the application of foundation (Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow, of course) a very easy process with super smooth and even results. The awesome gentleman that did my makeup at a Benefit counter had me pretty sold on this, though the price (paired with the foundation I'd just bought) was a little prohibitive--but I went home and, after some deliberation, bought it online the same week. Clearly, it had a lasting impression. I'll definitely be getting another once my current tube runs out.
I was super excited to try this product but it doesn't work for me at all. There is no difference in my skin with or without this product. I do love the silkiness but it didn't mask or hide my pores at all. I am very disappointed.
Great for oily skin types
This product keeps my t-zone area matte all day. It's very smooth going on and helps to shrink my pores. Love it!
Priming but not shrinking
I recieved this as a free gift with GLAMOUR magazine, and was quite chuffed with myself that I'd finally gor this product as I have heard many good things about it. It is satisfyingly smooth and made my skin feel silky, but earned its 4 stars by being my savior for my oily T-Zone. It doesn't visibly particuarly shrink any pores, but must, because it stops foundation from clogging my skin.
I do like the texture-smooth. I think it can run on the oily side though I do like the light amount of tine. I unfortunately use another brand for primer, but that is only because of my personal preference. It is overall a good pore minimizer and primer.
I like it, it has a real effecton pores but unfortunately...
I like it, it has a real effecton pores but unfortunately the composition is not very good...
I probably shouldn't write a review but...
I don't even have this, but it's £23.50 and I can't help noticing that it was free with the £2 June edition of glamour magazine! So ladies, wanna save yourself £21.50!!!
I kept getting samples of these until I actually decided to try it since I had a little pile going. Why didn't I try this before?! It has changed my whole makeup routine!! Foundation, BB cream, concealer, bronzer...they all go on SO much more smoother on top of Porefessional! It makes it look smooth, any shine will be gone, it's just a great product. While I do think it is a little pricey, a little goes a long way so it'll last you a while. The feeling of your skin after you put it on is amazing, it feels like a baby's bum! I never put foundation (I use Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow) or concealer (Boi-ing) before I put Porefessional on anymore!
effective, does the job, terrific
This product is fabulous, and it really does the job and makes the skin look flawless and smooth after the application moreover after using this product my pores vanished leaving a smooth and flawless looking skin behind! This product could be used under or over makeup and it also controls the oily skin. In addition to it this product is oil free and wont clog the pores.
Feels like silk, goes on so easily. Makes foundation look great or alternatively wear on its own under blusher to stop shine. Love it. Well worth the money :)
A MUST HAVE in my makeup bag
absolutely wonderful product, really helps create a natural, matte look. my only issue is that sometimes when it is humid i do need to touch up quite a bit with the shine. otherwise, I love the product, it perfectly enhances all other benefit products.
Lovely and soft, but doesn't minimise pores much.
It is really silky and lightweight, and feels gorgeous going on, so I use it as a primer on my t-zone. Unfortunately it doesn't really do much to hide my pores. So don't buy it if that's what you're looking for.
Silky+ Quickly minimize the appearance of pores.
Silky+ Quickly minimize the appearance of pores.
I love it!
I really love this product, I find if you put it on before makeup, especially on your t-zone area, it works miracles! Its really smooth, and soft, and silky, and it always stops my oily makeup clogging up my pores, so I get less blemishes than I used to. You'll notice a change a soon as your put it on, and it blurs out imperfections. Its like instant photoshop in a bottle!
Lovely product - works very well
This product is great. It makes my skins feel so soft and smooth. I was worried when I bought this that it would totally clog up my pores and I would get lots of blackheads/spots, but it's been totally fine. It doesn't completely mask my pores however so do not buy if this is what you want. Overall, I am very satisfied with this product!
it does what it claims
I love how my skin looks after I use this primer, no more big pores, just perfect flawless skin. You just need a tiny amount to cover your problems areas and that´s all... I´m totally in love with this product. It was the first time that I bought Benefit cosmetics from the only store in Melbourne that sells these products, it was really expensive, but I don´t care because it is amazing!! Now I can buy it online to save money with all my other favourite products from Benefit.
My first Benefit purchase and now I'm on my third tube...
My first Benefit purchase and now I'm on my third tube and never looking back! I've tried many different primers and this one is light, matte and smooth on application. You can see a difference from your bareskin once this is on, and on days off, I wear it alone without foundation. I use this every day and have found it lasts me more than 6months each time! Really worth every cent and a must-have for foundation wearers as this sets the perfect canvas to start painting! x
Another basic, must-have product in my arsenal
Together with That Gal, Porefessional has become the other Benefit product I can't do without. The first time I got it tried on me, it pleased me how my fair complexion looked, even fairer and matte. This one and That Gal are the fundamental duo for me. I use them both at the same time, mixing them, together with some Ultra Radiance face mist for additional freshness to my face, and I also use them separately (first Porefessional, then That Gal on top of Porefessional), to finish with Hello Flawless. P. D: I will order your very recent kit, Rare Beauty, very soon.
I'm 38 with blotchy skin and acne scars. I got this as a free sample and didn't know if it was a "primer" or what. Put it on under my makeup and WOW! I've used Smashbox and Giorgio Armani's primer and this is WAY better. It also evens out skin tone and makes your makeup look amazing for many hours. I went to dinner and a movie then accidentally fell asleep with my makeup on and I woke up in the morning and (besides my runny mascara), my skin looked PERFECT. And this is skin that is reddish and has irritated scars when I wake up in the morning. Get this, you'll LOVE IT
this product is simply perfect. It makes my pores...
this product is simply perfect. It makes my pores disappear for hours and my skin looks flawless...I love it!!
I have tried so many primers for my large pores and oily skin. I often use a Too Faced primer that I also love, but the oil comes back. I tried this product and it's by far the best primer I've ever used....well worth the money!! My face is not oily and my makup stayes and looks flawless! So happy I found this product.
One solution for all skin problems
This primer is super smooth but doesn't slide too much- this really smoothes out your skin and your foundation just glides on so easily. you could even wear this primer alone if you didnt want to wear foundation, it makes your skin flawless. its oil free and wont clog your pores or break you out It works really well in priming the face! It has a slight color to it, so it helps hide imperfections and works for every skin type.
this product does wonders
i have lots of pores on my face and this fils them up just nicely.
The best pore 'hider' on the market
I was pretty skeptical when I first saw this, not to mention a little unhappy about shelling out nearly $30 for a product that won't last me very long...but, man oh man, this does EXACTLY what it says it will. I've NEVER used a product to hide (or minimize) pores before that worked well at all until this. I'm not crazy about the price, but it IS a tiny little tube of magic! I don't know what kind of deal with the devil they've made to provide this magic to us, but I'm thankful for it. I've used this product not only on myself, but on several friends and my mom. We all have very different skin types and tones, but this has worked for all of us, and it's worked QUITE well. Bottom line: If you need to cover up your pores, buy this product. Once the sticker shock wears off, you WILL be addicted!
Haven't bought it,was thinking to buy it,will not
I've come to this this to find more about poreprofessional. All i've bomberded on my face was "Buy me, buy me", so fake before and after photoes. Don't we love those before and after photoes; before photoes most of the time looking depressed, no make up, not photoshopped and than after photoes looking so happy, smiling, photoshopped. No ingredient list on the site; ingredient list is the most important thing for most of us and than the price. Not the before and after photoes, not the models promoting etc. I don't know what are you hiding so you won't put the ingredients; is it the silicons. I don't want to speed up the aging just for looking poreless for a night or day. The consumers, new generation are aware all this now, unlike 10-20yrs ago or so. We read, we do our research. Thank you.
Its good if you use this product as a primer, however I dont think it nescessarily 'mimimizes' my pores... Not worth the price and I probably wont purchase again.
Masks lines and leaves skin feeling velvety!
This product noticeably minimizes the appearance of pores and fine lines, but it does not get rid of them completely. I also have a few acne scars on my skin and I find the product helps them appear less noticeable as it fills them in a little. The texture of the product is gorgeous and it really does leave skin feeling unbelievably soft! It also works as a great primer and helps my make up last a little longer when I use it. I know it's wishing for the impossible but I would love PoreFessional a lot more if it fully masked my pores!! I also feel its a little pricey considering the amount of product you get and to be honest I wont be rushing out to buy myself another tube when this one runs out...
Despite having only bought this product a week ago, I am already in love with it. The smooth, powdery finish makes my oily skin stay looking fresh and polished for hours, with or without foundation over the top. Perfect as an afternoon top-up product as well, and it smells divine too!
Does what it says on the tin!
This primer covers pores like a dream! Smoothes everything out. I use it on my nose combined with "That Gal" primer on my cheeks and forehead - they work really well together for combination skin. My only criticism is it doesn't last as long as other benefit products I have tried - usually have to reapply halfway through the day.
its truly what it claims
I bought this product along with benefit highlighter and pearl thingy. Lets get down to the first item: pore minimizer(porefessional) great product I would give a 5 star if not for the price of this item. My sister and my niece love it after I put it on them over the weekend. It really minimize the look of large pores and if you have smaller pores literally look poreless. (my sis and i have big pores and my niece have small pores) Amazing result after we put on powder or foundation. Stay on for hours too. EVEN have a mattize look to our faces. thumbs up.
made me break out =(
bought at sephora after feeling the nice light weight and silky texture and was excited to give it a try. every time i use it i get a nice painful zit either that night or the next morning =/. i used it the 2 days after i bought it and ended up with a couple zits, didnt use it for a few days to see if maybe something else was going on and no new zits, try it again and bam a zit. it was nice and light on my skin didnt feel heavy at all, nice silky texture, looked good but yeah not dealing with the zits.
I love the matte but fresh looking!
I have never left any review in my entire life. This one, however, definitely makes me want to share my experience. I am an oily combination skin type with an extremely oily T zone. I have tried out so many products. Yes, they do control the oil but also dehydrate my skin, and when I put on the makeup, I just get the cakey look. Moisturizers doesn't work since my foundation just melt off over them. So, I got this porefessional occasionally and applied it on my T zone. It does make my pores invisible, but at the same time controls the oil while leaving my face a fresh looking. It works so well under foundation. It would definitely be better if it has spf. Anyway, best primer I have ever used!

My skin glows when I mix it with That Gal...they are my favorite primers!
Great product. It really works
I love it. I wasnt sure it would work. But WOW it does... i love the silky and smooth texture and nice fragrance. I have large pores on my forehead and nose. It really make them dissapear. I use it before my foundation and it help my skin look perfect.

nice and smooth skin..... I'm simply in love with this product... you can't go wrong with hello flawless+porefessional :)
smallest pores ever
this is the best primer i've ever used. my pores are the bane of my existence and after i use this primer they are so much smaller. my skin is also very soft after i use it and i find that since it is beige it is also good for color correcting the redness around my nose.
OK, let me just put it out there that I have possibly the biggest pores in history. No matter what and how much gunk i pile on my face, they still glare at me in the mirrors on my t-zone, cheeks and forehead. That is, until I found the porefessional. This did WONDERS to my pores. Due to their extremely enormous size I really do have to use probably more than reccomended, but what I also love about it is that as well as concealing pores, it gives my face a very healthy glow. Most days I skip foundation all together since the porefessional evens up my skin tone so much. Although my pores have a tendency to reappear during the day, it doesn't hold a candle to the horrors I used to deal with. And of course, the scent. its a lemony-floral scent that is very distinct. It makes me smile every time, because guess what? Now my face will smell good, it will look refreshed and radiant, and there will not be a pore in sight! THANK YOU POREFESSIONAL

I bought this a week or so after buying my first ever Benefit products as I couldn't resist! It makes my foundation go on so much better and does indeed reduce the appearance of pores on my nose. The foundation also seems to be lasting longer and I'm not getting oily patches either that I was worried about before I started using Porefessional. Another great product!
This is a fantastic primer, it evens out the skin surface and does indeed minimise pores. I use this on my t-zone every day before foundation and wouldn't be without it!
Very good product
Really nice smooth and smells nice to

I LOVE POREFESSIONAL! It smells wonderful, makes your skin feel like satin, and reduces the appearance of pores. I wear this under makeup or just by itself. Its simply wonderful. A little goes a long way too.
THE ABSOLUTE MIRACLE!!
I have been using Benefit since it hit the stores. They always amaze me. this product is the ultimate. if u ever invest in makeup this is a MUST!!

Rec'd a sample at the Benefit House party, and loooove it! I use it under foundation, & it makes my late 40's skin look like it did in my 30's. I'll be buying this in size XXL!
I have gigantic pores and this product makes them instantly smaller. It makes my skin feel so velvety, it feels like you're rubbing silk into your skin when you put it on. It also makes my foundation go on so much smoother, but it's great if you want to wear it by itself as well.
Smells great, smooth, lightweight & AMAZING! LOVE!

It does what it says. It minimizes my pores and leaves my skin so smooth feeling. Its so lightweight and creamy. I use this on my forehead lines as well and it smoothes them out. Such a great product. I personally own tons of products from you guys. Thanks.
The POREfessional really works! I stumbled on the POREfessional last Christmas when I was shopping for Christmas gifts for friends at the Benefit counter. The sales assistant suggested I try it and I have been hooked ever since. It not only makes my pores look smaller but really helps control my T-zone area and has a mattifying effect. Love it love it!
I love benefit! I heard great things about this product so I finally decided to try it out and I must say, I am not super impressed. It works well as a primer. It is light weight and super silky. It feels great on my face and helps my foundation stay on and look nice; however, it does not minimize my pores. It does work for some of my friends, just not well for me. But also, I dont have really large pores anyways. I am looking forward to seeing how it does with oil on my face once it gets hot outside. I have a feeling it will work well for that. :)
gives me white heads and breakouts
will never recommend it to anyone. Gives whitehead and breakouts after using. What a waste of money.
Silky, lightweight, gorgeous
I use this product on customers and every one of them love it! It's absolutely gorgeous! Would not leave the house without it! Silky soft finish and even wear it without foundation over the top because it really tightens the skin for an airbrush finish. Great buy :)
not so hot
Its silky as what the benefit writes on the web. it smells good and do cover the pores but not to much. the pores are still visible. no matter how much you put on your face. but yah its covering. a little.
This primer is really ace - it smooths my face and helps keep my make-up on for longer. The texture is really nice! The only downside is that you need to use quite a bit of the product to notice the effect. Otherwise it's perfect!
Yuuup! Porefessional gives me a really flawless makeup look & it's amazing! However, for me, I find that it gives me of a TOOO flawless look that I don't really like! I would definitely keep it in my makeup collection as one day I might find it useful but seriously this is really good stuff & it's really handy to use on no makeup days but you still want to look like your skins absolutely pore-free! :)
Good for oily skin
I had heard good things about this primer and even the high price(!) I decided to try it, and I must say I am very happy with the results. A little goes a long way and it dries into the skin straight away. Even tho this primer isnt especially for oily skin I find that it works very good on my oily skin. However this product is crazy overpriced and I am not sure if its worth the price and if im going to re-purchase it.
This product does it's job
I love the POREfessional! It's a very light product. I have horrible black heads on my nose. I just take a little dab of the porefessional and apply it on my nose. It's silky too!
Despite entering my 30s I still suffer with breakouts,...
Despite entering my 30s I still suffer with breakouts, large pores & oily skin. Most primers seem to break me out or lack the ability to control my oiliness. I first tried this product in my Birchbox subscription. I was amazed at how smooth it went on. My pores and my tiny little fine lines were immediately blurred. I love the matte finish. This helps my foundation go on evenly and last throughout the day.
A little disappointing
I like most Benefit products and was hoping this would be as stellar as the others. Unfortunately, it doesn't match up to other lines I've used in the past. Pores aren't minimized at all and doesn't make a difference with make-up application. Disappointing.
Makes my skin feel great!
I received a sample of this product and tried it. Loved it and bought the full sized verions. I use it every day under my finishing powder and I don't need a foundation. Keeps makeup in place and doesn't let it gravitate toward the wrinkles. Wish I had used this product in my twenties and thirties - now in the 40s. Please keep making this balm!

All I can say is wow! It minimized my pores so perfectly! I love this product!
Okay, I don't really have pore problems, but I do have shine and sensitive-skin problems. I need a primer, and I opted away from Dr. Feelgood, since it seems like it might be too heavy for me. The Porefessional really does the job. I put it on all my T-zone-ish areas (nose, jawline) and my uneven/red spots (cheeks, under-eyes). I can't tell I've put it on...until I put on the rest of my daily wear (lemon-aid, Hello Flawless, Dandelion, and maybe Hoola/Coralista for contouring...depending on the day). Then everything POPS even more than it used to! And it stays all day. I only don't give it a 5 because it seems like I need to use quite a bit of product to get the relatively-minimal coverage I need. It's also very pricey for the size of the tube.

Doesn't "minimize" the appearance of pores instead it just gives your make application a very smooth even finish so you don't have the issue of concealer making larger pores dramatically more noticeable. Really is silky and lightweight. Doesn't leave an oily finish like other primers.

This is what got me hooked on benefit cosmetics. I received a sample of this in my monthly Birchbox. And i loved it so much that i decided to stop in the Benefit Boutique near my house. I use this on my nose, chin and under my eyes.
...But I want it!
I REALLY liked how this product had a lovely effect smoothing the skin and absorbing shine in oily areas... However, it broke me out. I don't usually have any pimples and after using this for a few days my t-zone and chin were full of zits. Such a shame :(
When the Benebabe put this on me when I was in the shop I thought it was really good. But now I own it and put it on myself with my normal make-up routine I just do not love it. Such a shame
Treated myself to this about 2 months ago... I've still got lots left in the tube as a little goes a long way. I've always had quite big pores around my nose and this is like airbrush in a bottle. Works well underneath and over the top of make up. So silky and makes your skin feel really smooth and gorgeous! Definitely buy this product!!!
Wonderful primer, great for touch ups
I really like Primed and Poreless. It goes on nicely and gives my skin a silky smooth finish. The only thing I don't like about this primer is, by the end of the day, sometimes my face starts feeling a little oily. A little swipe of Hello Flawless powder fixes the problem but I could go without the oily feeling. Otherwise, it's a great product.
I was not sure about this product at first, but am totally convinced now! Just a little dab and my skin feels smooth and silky.
covers up shine
I don't think my pores look any different with this product but it's great on reducing shine. The only product I know of this type that can be applied over powder makeup without smudging.

I recieved my first tube of Porefessional in my Porefessionally Pretty Gift Set.The Porefessional minimises the apperance of pores and makes skin feel smooth. Porefessional contains Silcone and Vitatmin E so it makes skin healthy and the Silcone helps mattify the skin.I also love the smell of this product.
I tried Benefit after being disappointed numerous times with other primers, since my oily skin seemed to just brush them aside and continue to make my makeup slide off. After the first application, I was hooked! Not only did my oily skin play nice and stay matte for HOURS, but it evened out my skin surface, shrinking my oversized pores, and even minimising my acne scarring! I recommended the POREfessional to my mother, who also has oily skin, and she loves it too!

The finish this product gives you is amazing. Your skin looks smooth and even AND your pores dissapear.It will make your make up look much better. You need to have this one for sure. I love it!!
While I don't know much about pore-minimizing products, POREfessional is amazing when it comes to making your skin supernaturally smooth. I use this product on and around my nose, and it indeed makes the pores on my face look smaller and it smoothes and primes that area. I took off one heart because I can't use POREfessional when the skin on my face is a bit dry, which tends to happen in winter (no matter how much I moisturize). Still, I'm happy with this product and break it out whenever I need my makeup to look extra polished. I found that I don't need to use much, so one tube lasts a really long time.
My fist Benefit product. I find it really easy to apply and result is amazing, skin feels like a velvet - soft. Also i have very sensitive and easy reacting skin and no problems so far ( i been using it for a month). Great balm!!!

This product is just perfect! It's not thick or heavy like a foundation, but gives me a smoothness and perfect skin...even without makeup! Highly recommend <3
Love this product!
really helps to minimise the appearance of pores! i have quite large pores on my t-zone and this product totally fixes that! Would defiantly recommend this product and i will be re-purchasing!!
Great for midday touch-ups
This works best for me when i use it midday, or before I go out for the evening, over the makeup I applied that morning, After applying a thin layer, I'll just brush on some new face powder and blush and my complexion is fresh again.
This is a really lovely product
I asked the shop assistant to help me find a product that would stop any "shiny-ness" on my forehead and my face generally after a few hours in the day. She pointed out POREfessional, and even though i intended to buy a powder or something, i thought i'd give this a whirl. Its lovely! It's got a lovely texture, and i've definitely noticed an improvement on the finish of my foundation with this underneath. Love it Benefit, you've done it again! x
If you're worried if this will be okay for sensitive skin due to the silkyness of it, worry not! This is amazing! I'm severley allergic to 'Parabens' (a chemical in almost every cosmetic) and suffer with facial excema so I have to be really cautious when buying anything. I've been left with really thin skin from excessive steriod use on my face, and this primer just covers any sign of it. It's not oily and evens out skin tone. I have a feeling this will last for ages as a small amount will cover the whole face so it's definatly value for money! It's amazing how well it blends in when you put over powdered foundation, however my only criticism is that it smudges blusher if applied over the top so beware of that. All in all, could not live without this and would definaatly reccomend! (My mum even bought a tube!)
I liked the sample I ordered with a prior Benefit online order, but the next time I ordered online, I gave the sample to my 77 year-old mom who loves the formula. I prefer the Dr Feel Good texture, but for all intents and purposes, this formula is great and the product performs as advertises. I would recommend it to anyone who isn't hooked on Dr Feel Good like I am :) :)
I have quite large pores on my nose & cheeks with oily skin! When I was first given a sample of porefessional from one of the lovely benebabes, I put it in my draw for safe keeping, not quite believing it would work! When I finally decided to use it, it was a case of now you see them .... Now you don't!!! I loved it! I couldnt believe how flawless my skin looked & how smooth it felt!! It truly is amazing & a makeup must!!!! I now own two tubes, one for home, one in my handbag for touch ups!
I hated this primer, it barely covered my pores and would only cover them by sinking into my pores, also it make my makeup look cakey and oily. If your applying makeup ontop then whats the point of a dumb primer like this?
Just what i was looking for!
I was so sick and tired of buying very expensive make up to only find that it was only lasting a couple of hours once applied. Whilst researching for primers i went out on a whim and bought this one. Wowwee. Lets just say that if i put my make up on at 8am, it still looks perfect come 10pm. I am still pretty shocked as to how amazing this is! I cant say that i suffer with pore problems, but its so light and easy to apply and on top of that leaves my skin feeling constantly smooth. Couldnt be any happier to be honest!

glides on and makes skin feel amazing! Silky soft. Really does do what it says it should and a tiny bit goes a long way.
Works like magic!
It makes my skin so unbelievably smooth, I absolutely adore it!
Love it!! Best money I've ever spent.
Ok, so I just bought the pack, the POREfessional with the Pearl for Girl and Erase Paste. Firstly, the other two are great (especially the Erase Paste) But the POREfessional is amazing! I suffer with quite large pores, and it covered them completely, its like airbrushing, but for real life. I also think its great for covering ugly eye bags. I haven't used it with my regular foundation yet but I'm starting to think I shouldnt. Just doesnt look like I need foundation anymore. Or should I go and get A BENEFIT foundation. Totally converted because of this :D Love it.
Makes my skin oh so smooth
Pore fessional is THE makeup product that I can't live without. Ever since I tried it, I've been hooked. Keeps my skin smooth, pores look smaller and my skin doesn't look oily. Absolutely the best!

It´s fantastic my skin is so soft and silky, love it, love it
I find this product absolutely great! It makes my skin so soft and smooth, sometimes I don't even wear any make up with it and it looks great! It is very handy for days when you just don't feel like wearing any make-up but still wanna look presentable. The only reason why I didn't give it 5 stars is because sometimes it doesn't really blend in with my concealer. I guess you have to put a VERY, very small amount so it really stays in the back as a BASE and doesn't meddle with the foundation. So it's a great product, will buy again, I would definitely recommend, just be careful with the quantity you put on.

Absolutely Uh-May-Zing product. I use this product by itself and also with my normal makeup regimen. I've got deep pores and thought there was no product that could help me but POREfessional does the job above and beyond what any expensive or drug store product could do or promise to do. I'll never replace this product and hope benefit continues to sell it. My pores literally disappear and it gives my skin a very matte, smooth look. The product is lightweight and after you smooth it on you can't even tell you've used anything. Not greasy or oily and NO it does not clog pores or create acne. You can't go wrong!
I hoped that this product would make my pores less visible but it does not. However, I am not at all disappointed with it. It acted as a perfect primer for under my makeup, but I would not recommend it over, as it took off my foundation. It absorbed the oil round my nose and forehead completely. It has a lovely smell and feels light, clean and fresh when wearing. Overall, I would recommend this product.
works very good
I went to my fav makeup shop and I asked expressly to try this product: I've read a lot of reviews always so good. But firstly I want to try for a lot of reasons and the most important is that: I have an atopic skin with allergies tendency. So I need to be sure before buy. It's amazing! Mattify and smooth the skin. So I bought it and surely I'll rebuy! ps: I've never had allergy problems with Benefit! <3
I was very skeptical when I got this product, since I don't really have large pores and wasn't sure what it would do for me. This is great under my makeup and really makes my makeup last! I wore it on New Years Eve, and my skin looked WONDERFUL in pictures. I will def. be purchasing more of this in the future!
I've already tried some others, but anything did what it does. The pores disappear, smooth skin, perfect. Even, living in Brazil at rio rio de janeiro, warm weather, porefessional is pretty resistant
I'd never used a primer before and didn't really believe that anything would visibly minimise pores but it really does the job. My skin feels so fresh and smooth afterwards, creating a perfect canvas for a tinted moisturisor, or foundation and concealer. It never makes my face look shiny or greasy either. I bought my first porefessional tube in the summer and it's still going strong now. Worth the money for sure! Thanks Benefit!
Does Just What I need
I have no problem with large pores and since I wear no foundation, only a loose powder, it tends to be a little heavy on my face BUT, I found an even better way to use it-as a base for my eyeshadow. I've never been able to keep my eyeshadow on for a full day or prevent creasing. But if I use Porefessional as a base, then put on my eyeshadow, it goes on very smoothly and allows my shadow to stay put all day.
I have extremely big pores on my T-zone and this almost...
I have extremely big pores on my T-zone and this almost covers them! That's super good job without foundation! <3
Perfect for Older Skin
For aging skin with pores being more pronounced, this product is a must. It leaves skin looking as near to perfect as any product I have tried. Thanks for making it!
As I live in Rio de Janeiro - Brazil, it's surprised me by taking off the oily aspect of my face. My make up for a wedding lasted pretty much, and I didn't look messy, even after a couple of hours of dancing and the heat outside the party.
Not as great as I thought, but I didn't return it either!
Not as great as I thought, but I didn't return it either!
Even has a great SCENT
I love the lemon/citrus scent as much as I love how it works and feels so light. My pores are more apparent around/on my nose and nearby cheek area tho I never had a large pore problem (age?). When I use this, they disappear! Another great thing about it: it can be reapplied over make-up as the day goes on without effecting what's on my face already, while the citrus scent makes me feel like I just washed my face. Now I don't have to reapply make-up to keep it fresh looking. When used alone, it gives my face a nice, silky feel and matte fresh look. This primer also takes away the deepness of a couple scars/pock marks I have (with or without make-up). It's an amazing product.

If I am wearing foundation, I am using this primer!
This primer makes my skin feel soft and silky. It hides my pores and makes my skin the perfect canvas for makeup. It's easily applied and doesn't make my makeup melt off my face. The only problem for me, is that it doesn't keep my makeup from fading. But I that's really not one of the "promises" of this product.. So it's great for what it's supposed to do.
Soft as silk, and twice as nice
In search of a product to replace my old primer, I was introduced to POREfessional by my Benefit rep. I have very oily skin, and was worried that this product would make me even more oily. Boy, was I wrong. Not only did it cover my pores like crack-filler on a wall, but it felt like a dream as I was applying it--so soft and smooth. It also sucks the oil from the skin, so you're left with a mattefied skin on which to apply your make-up. You don't need a lot, either, just a tiny little dab, and the tube will last you ages! I only apply it where it's needed (nose, cheekies, chin and forehead) and the tube has lasted me over 5 months of daily use. It's not even half gone, so I can't give you an estimate of how long it lasts...but a certainly long time. I LOVE POREfessional!!

Simply put the "POREfessional" : 1 . minimizes the appearance of pores, just like it says it does. 2 . makes my face smooth and touchable all day long. 3 . helps hide small flaws (like the red on the sides of my nose, and any small blemishes that may be hiding) 4 . helps my makeup stay on much longer. If any of this sounds appealing to you, then you NEED the POREfessional in your Benefit collection!

It gives my entire face a silky, soft feel and look, as well as minimizing (almost to the point of disappearing) the pores on and around my nose. Thank you thank you thank you Benefit for making this wonderful product :)

It was the day I showed up to a Benefit Counter a few months ago that I fell in love with this product! The counter manager was completely amazing at his job, made me feel comfortable, and really showed me the items that he could not live without. This just happened to be one of them. I felt like I was interviewing him and he was giving me very honest answers. So, he gave me a sample with an info packet and invited me to come back and have a cosmetic "play party" with him. I fell in love...this product makes my skin look pore-less and seamless, plus it really does hold on my foundation well. I can't go back. It was love at first like.
I have acne and this product helped my skin to look smoother. It is light and so soft. I would buy this again.

I love this product. When I first started using it, I didnt notice that much of a change. Untill I stopped using it for a day or two, thats when I REALLY noticed how my pores were less visible and it kept the shine on my face to a minimum.
This product smoothens the appearance of my skin by concealing my pores and by controlling oil as well. I have a very oily skin so I apply a good amount on my T-zone at the sides of my nose. A very good base for makeup, but may be used alone for a carefree no-makeup look. I also tried applying it on top of my makeup to "seal" it in and for touch-ups and it really works! It may seem pricey for a small tube, but a little amount goes a long way. Mine lasted for maybe 7-8 months, plus it is really worth it. Btw, my boyfriend learned about it, got amazed and started using it too!

My skin is super oily, I use The POREfessional under my playstick (foundation, concealer & power all in one), and my skin looks and feels pretty good. But as the day progresses, my skin starts going oily again, and it's impossible to control. This is a great product, I wear it alone without make-up sometimes, but if you have really oily skin like me, then I would recommend something like dr.feelgood.
It is a MUST for me everyday! You can apply everywhere even if you have make up...I usually apply it on my make up, after work or before a meeting....but it is also perfect to be radiant in a party!! You have to taste it....all my friends once the taste mine... theyare addicted like me!
I got a free sample of this the other day, and I am in love with it! It works well and is incredibly smooth! I plan on buying a tube of it when I get the chance!

This is a very good primer ! Skin is soft like velvet and complexion ready for make-up.
This is a terrific product. There is a significant difference when used. Very silky and light. Feels good on. Two thumbs up!!!
never thought it could replace my oil control film/blotting papers, i love this!!!
PERFECT ALLROUNDER !
I got this just to try it and i was a bit skeptical at first, but now, Ive finished my first tube, Ive just ordered my 2nd. I dont even use foundation anymore. I use Porefessional just on my clean face, with a slight dusting of hello flawless on top and thats it. My skin looks amazing !! I would very highly recommend this product. AND, somehow, just somehow, even though it only comes out in 1 shade, it is my perfect match !!

Pores? Forget about it. Very light, leaves skin feeling extremely silky. I got this as a sample with my last Benefit purchase and I am definitely going to buy this product.

POREfessional, you rock.

Honestly this is a miracle worker for me. I put it on before my foundation and it really makes my pores look smaller. I love it!
Silky smooth skin... with pores
I started using this with high expectations, thinking the pores on my nose would become invisible. It does make them stand out less, and it makes my skin softer than ever, but my pores are not completely gone. I will finish this tube but probably won't re-order.
I liked it a lot. i did not notice my pores diminished,...
I liked it a lot. i did not notice my pores diminished, but left it with a velvety texture and it held the oil on the T-Zone the whole day
I use this mainly on and around the nose and everytime,...
I use this mainly on and around the nose and everytime, it leaves it feeling soft and smooth. I tried it on my husband and while it does minimise and improve the appearance (and also makes it baby-soft to the touch), sorry, they won't fill in large pores or scarred skin-- however, it did melt/was absorbed to almost nothing on his dark skin.
This stuff is like magic! The pores on my nose are big...
This stuff is like magic! The pores on my nose are big and this stuff makes them disappear. Keeps me from looking shiny too. I love how it feels on. Definitely would recommend this!

This is a must have primer for anyone. also great mixed with girl meets pearl! instantly smooths out your skin and fights shine. perfect under hello flawless!
and the magic word is... NOT abracadabra!
The magic word is POREfessional. The last thing I want to see when I look in the mirror in the morning are my large pores around my nose. When I dab the moisturizing balm around my nose all of my worries simply disappear without clogging my pores.
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE THIS PRODUCT!
The best find in make-up yet! The POREfessional not only reduces my pores, it softens my skin and makes it glow! I especially love how you can use it under and on top of make-up. I would buy this product over and over, not only for myself, but for friends and family too!
silky smooth skin
I would love to give this product 5 stars but the only reason I'm giving it 4 is because it made me break out the first few times I used it. I later discovered that if I put a thin layer of Clean and Clear spot treatment first then I don't break out. It makes my skin feel silky smooth and makes my makeup last longer throughout the day.
Makes my face SO soft and smooth! Pores disapear!
This makes my pores disappear completely! my face also feels so soft afterward so it works as a good primer as well! AND it doesn't clog pores while fading them!
This will keep even the most pore-infested people, like me a airbrushed, glamourous model glowing face. Put under a "Hello Flawless", add Bella Bamba, some Zone Out Gloss and your looking awesome!
have to have it!
this stuff is awesome! at first i was not so sure it was a good buy considering how small the bottle is..but a little goes a long way..you dont have to use much at all..i bought it as a primer..but i was amazed at how my pores looked after! it goes on so smooth..made my face feel soft and my makeup looks great! and i love the smell. i am addicted to it now if you cant tell lol i am sad that they got rid of cupids bow though =( oh and if you put on that gal makeup and then porefessional after it looks amazing..they are two way dif working primers..and together just amazing

The best product EVER!
This is the best product I have ever found for large pores. I have always had large pores that seem to get larger and have tried all kinds of products to hide them with no luck until I came across POREfessional! It is by far the best ever. It covers my pores and makes my skin look so smooth. I just can't believe it!!
I love POREfessional!!
This product is great! My skin is a very problematic. This product resolve all my skin' problem! Thank you benefits!
wouldn't leave the country without
before i left for my military deployment, i had to stock up on this product. it is great for my big pores and helps keeps all the "sand" out. love the fact that benefit ships to an APO address.. I have showed this product to other gals here and they loved it too!
This is a perfect balm for getting rid of those pesky pores!
This is a perfect balm for getting rid of those pesky pores!
I am in awe!
How did I live without this? I am always hesitant to buy make-up online (or anytime) because I am so fair and it is very difficult to find my shade. However, this incredible product is smooth, silky, and translucent. I can wear it alone and get incredible coverage, but seriously look like I'm wearing no make-up at all. If you are fair skinned and have blackheads like I do, they stand out like a black dot on a white paper, but this glides on and moisturizes as it sits on my skin. I love it so very much. I think it would be appropriate for fair to medium skin, but I wish this product was available in a larger variety of tints. As we all know, beautiful ladies come in all shades.
Although this product is supposed to minimise pores,...
Although this product is supposed to minimise pores, unfortunately it doesn't do that for me - not in the slightest. However, mixed with a bit of That Gal, it provides a base for long lasting foundation, and the foundation glides on. I think I even use about 50 percent less of my foundation! So, it might not reduce my poors, but I couldn't live without it for other reasons. So glad I accidentally discovered this product!
I just discovered that concealer and foundation absorbed...
I just discovered that concealer and foundation absorbed to skin really well with POREfessional - either using brush or fingers to apply, it compliment those two coverups on my uneven skin tone, to the old scars and some of really deep pores. PLUS POINT : Makeup stays longer for hours and gentle dap to zap those oil.
a quick easy way to banish them pores! :')
i got this product a few days ago for christmas, i was a bit hesitant for the results because i have big pores on my nose & forehead.. but i have to say it really does work! i don't think it covers them completely and im sure if you want the perfect look you would have to re-apply a lot. i love the texture of it, its so silky & luxurious! :') i don't exactly think it works fully but if it helps a little then i'll take it.
BYE-BYE PORES, SHINE, AND FINE LINES!!
This product has become one of my all time favorite Benefit products. Not only does it make my pores practically disappear but it soaks up oil and keeps it away all day.Also its silky consistency makes applying my makeup a dream. This is especially a great product for mature women as I have found on my older clients that it even fills in the fine lines around the eyes and mouth. My mom hated the big pores on her noes which had worsened with age and when she tried on the porefessional she literally started freaking out. The difference was astounding and she said she wished she had had it her whole life. Well now we are both sold for life.
Bye bye oily t-zone! Love the nice smooth feel this...
Bye bye oily t-zone! Love the nice smooth feel this product leaves on my face, and that the pores are visibly smaller.
Skeptical at first, but love it!
This is one of my favourite benefit products! At first, I didn't think it would really make much of a difference, but you can definitely tell. My complexion definitely looks clearer and smoother. It's great for work or during the day, when you only want something light to hide the little imperfections. Love it! Plus, it smells delicious!
Says Exactly what it does.
I read about this when it first came out and then my skin was horrible. I decided to change my routine and add this to it. As soon as I put this on I notice a difference and requires less make up. I am on my third tube and do not plan on changing products!
yes and not so sure...
I'm still playing with this product, and maybe I'm just not applying it correctly or something, but so far it doesn't make much difference in the look of my pores. sorry! However, it works really well on a few acne scars on my face. It doesn't make them disappear of course, but it does smooth out edges, fill in little dents and generally make the scars less noticeable.
I was a bit unsure if this product would actually work, but it is wonderful, it smells amazing and when i put make up over my skin looked so much smoother, I am beyond happy and would defiantly purchase again!!!
Almost my whole long life I have had to look in the mirror and see very visible pores around t-zone. The POREfessional seems to make them disappear! Amazing.
POREfessional is like magic in a tube. I tell every woman...
POREfessional is like magic in a tube. I tell every woman I know about it and even show them how it works. I LOVE to mix this with my Boi-ing concealer- it makes THE best cover-up I've ever used!
This product is really good!
POREfessional was my first ever Benefit product and after trying it I am really in love with Benefit. It really does what it promises and it's easy to apply.
Great for oily skin!!!
I have an oily skin so this primer definitely helps my face look great! It's a pity it comes in such small package! :)
Brilliant product, perfect for oily skin
I have used several different brands of makeup primer, both expensive and the drug store variety. They ALL left my skin greasy at the end of the day. Then one day, I stopped by the Benefit counter and the consultant (who probably saw how greasy I looked) recommended POREfessional. I tried it right on the spot and poof! No more grease AND no more pores! Plus, it lasted all day. I will never use another brand of primer again. I also discovered a little trick. Instead of using it under your makeup, use a little bit OVER your foundation (works especially well with powder foundation), and your skin will look absolutely flawless!
this product is amazing!!! it saves make up and makes skin silky smooth plus minimizing pores!! it is a must have in my make up bag.. if you dont have it yet you are missing out!
easy to use
I used Dr. feelgood I feel it very good, but the only disadventage is discommodious to use. After using this product, the skin touched sleekly. and this product is easy to use and carry. very good
make up saver!
My issues with powder foundation sinking into my pores or only appearing to settle into my pores and not on the rest of my t-zone, have vanished! I just smooth it on where pores are most visible and my make up just glides on over the top! It has saved me a lot of embarrassment!
Pores no more!
Amazing product. I have a grease-tastic, large pored, distractingly nasty t-zone. A dose of the POREfessional, and my skin is a perfect canvas. Try mixing this with a bit of Boi-oing around the eyes. Perfection. Fills in fine lines, covers under eye circles, and keeps oil at bay. I don't do this around the nose though, it settles into my pores. I top this off with a dusting of Hello Flawless, and, if I may say so myself, I look pretty darn flawless.
Self-confidence in a tube!
Both my 18-year old stepdaughter and I use this, and cannot believe how flawless it makes our skin look! Classic!
I used this under Get Even for my wedding, and my skin...
I used this under Get Even for my wedding, and my skin looked amazing and flawless the whole day, even in all the inside pictures. Can't get any better than that. Definitely my favorite product.
It leaves you with a nice smooth base so you have the perfect canvas so you can add all the other wonderful things the cosmetics gods gave us. I really like how it feels almost whipped, it's very airy and doesn't feel like my pores are starved for air.
Vanishing pores act!
I could not believe this product. I have very large pores on my cheeks and forehead and this product made them disappear! I also use it on the other areas of my face as well for a makeup primer. It leaves my skin incredibly silky and soft. Also, you can pat it on some oily areas of your face later on in the day and it instantly mattifies! I also love to use this on all skin types, because every gal loves silky skin!
Silky smooth with serious staying power
As a person with pores that like to stand up and be noticed, I was hoping Porefessional would knock them back into yesterday... and it sure did! After my first application, my skin looked silky smooth and even the fine lines in the corner of my eyes and those nasty vertical wrinkles smokers get around the mouth (even though I quit 6 years ago, 12 yrs of puffing away has now returned to haunt me in wrinkle form!) were filled in and smoothed out. I am thrilled with this product, which by the way, lasts all day. Yum!
I'm not normally one to use a primer or base before my make-up, but now I find myself using POREfessional everyday. I prefer to use it before applying my make-up so I can't speak to how it works over make-up. It give your skin a very smooth feel and let make-up glide on.
A must have if you have imperfect skin.
It makes my pores gone and the skin looks so smooth. Perfect even on bare makeup.
Great smell, great result
It really conceals your pores and helps to create a perfect "canvas" for the makeup! :) Also, smell is really really nice compare to other brand's concealers! LOVE it!
When you use this product at first, you might not see the difference but after couple times, then you don't put it on, you will definitely see the difference with/without this! It really makes your pore look smaller! gotta love this item:)
I use it after the foundation in the morning. The face feels so smooth and not oily. Also I will use it after a long day. After apply it, the total face seems refreshed and not oily any more. It is really a great product!
really really works!!
this wonderful product I read about in a magazine really really works wonders ,I've started using last week under my Get Even powder and its fantastic ,I have to say blends in perfect last long in the skin looks flawless it is a must have i love it!!
WOW. This stuff is miraculous. Nothing has ever made my enormous pores just "disappear" before, but just a teeny, little dab of POREfessional makes my skin appear flawless. It's leaves a velvety, soft finish that keeps my skin matte and glowing all day. The tube seems small, but a little of this stuff truly goes a long, long way. LOVE THIS STUFF! I'll never be able to live with out it now.
Wonderful- just don't use it over blackheads!
I've got some light acne scars on my cheeks, and this smooths my skin out so beautifully. I use a powder foundation over this, and get compliments every time! One bit of warning about it though: don't use it over blackheads. I have a lot of bad blackheads on my nose, and for some reason it sticks directly on them and creates bumps on my nose that look much worse than just the blackheads themselves. One last thing: it smells amazing. I use a foundation brush to put this on, and I always smell the brush after I've put the Porefessional on. Sooo yummy!
my favorate primer ever!
this is THE best primer so far! I have combination skin. Normally I tend to be very oily in the T zone. After 3-5 hours after I applied my makeup, I'll end up having a very shinny face.. But this product saved me. It smooths my face, making the foundation application much easier and better. I only applied this on the T-zone area. It minimizes my pores but not break me out! Love this product, one of those I can not live with out ones! If you like me have combination/acne skin, it works! And it lasts a really time!
Goes on seamlessly
I'm always on the lookout for new Benefit products, so it's safe to say that I was pleasantly surprised when I found this little gem. All you need is a very small amount and just dab it onto your T-zone and lightly pat it in with the tips of your fingers. Sometimes it takes more than one little dab, but usually that gets the job done for me. As a cosmetology student, I make sure to keep this in my caddy.
Me encanta este producto, es un bálsamo para reducir la apariencia de los poros. No contiene aceites y es traslúcido, tiene un tono marrón, pero una vez extendido se funde con la piel y no se nota el color. Hay que aplicarlo antes del maquillaje, en mejillas, frente y nariz, aunque sería recomendable aplicarlo en general en las zonas de poros abiertos o con mucho brillo. Queda la piel matizada y lista para aplicar el maquillaje. Dura a lo largo del día sin necesidad de retoques.
Best Pore Minimizer Ever
This primer is great. This silky and lightweight primer does a great job minimizing the large pores around my nose area. I apply this primer everyday on my face before I apply my liquid foundation. And my foundation applies much smoother and my large pores are gone. Thanks to Benefit, my skin looks poreless with this primer. It also smells great. I highly recommend this primer to everyone who wants to minimize appearance of large pores.
Truly does work! Minimized pores in T-zone area.
Reduced appearance of pores and shine. Also great to use under make-up. Does not create flaking. Love it!
I love this product, it smooths out my problem areas so that my foundation goes on smoother!
A perfect primer!
As someone with somewhat dry, very pale combination skin and visible pores - I've searched high and low for a primer that stays put, feels silky (and not greasy!), and is just thick enough to help to even out the look of my skin tone just a little bit - all without making me break out! POREfessional fills this tall order (for me), and looks great alone or under makeup. Also - it's scent is not chemically and so light, by boyfriend didn't believe I had anything on my skin at all. Honestly, look no farther for a primer. this. is. it.
