best primer I've ever used!
This feels so good on my skin! Silky soft, and completely reduces the visibility of my pores. My skin is very oily, though, and primers make my face feel more greasy after a while. This one did the best, though, and I really would recommend it to anyone looking for a good primer! It should last a long time, too, because you don't need much!
Works exactly as advertised
Due to some unlucky genetics I've got rather prominent pores on my nose and cheeks that I can't really do anything about. I apply a pea-sized amount of Porefessional across those areas after foundation and instantly my pores...well, they don't quite vanish completely but it's about a 95% improvement. Could not be happier with this product! I keep my full-sized tube at home and a sample-sized one in my bag for touch ups throughout the day.
Not quite "professional"
It works well, is extremely soft and feel like silk when you rubbing on the skin. When you think about something when it says"pore less" Don't expect it to completely remove your pores. It definitely decreased mine slightly, but did not make much of a difference. This product did help, and it did make my makeup apply smoother and nicer upon my skin.
I don't use this as a primer as it's marketed as a pore minimizing balm! It says you can use it all over but the description doesn't say "face primer." As a pore minimizing balm I think it works decently. Does it totally erase & blur the pores? LOL.... No! It's not a miracle balm. But it helps. I like to use it on my checks after my foundation before my powder. I split a pea size amount between my two cheeks. I'm almost out & wanna buy it again. I assume the balm can work for any skin color. The light color of it turns invisible.
Photoshopped finish, can feel a bit like a mask..
I only have a sample size of this product, however it has lasted me a long time, and I still got much left. First of all, I love the smell.! They smell wears of, so you really only smell it when you apply it, which is nice. It gives your skin a silky finish, and is easy to glide on. It does diminishes pores, but the downfall is that your face can feel like you wearing a mask.
I have medium sized pores around my nose area, and theyve always irritated me. thats why i decided to get the porefessional. before this ive never used a primer and since ive been using this i havent noticed any difference with how long my makeup lasts, so i cant say anything about that, but pore wise it does minimize the appearence. key word: minimize. it doesnt magic them away but you can see a slight difference with it. the smell is nice, and it hasnt irriated my skin, im going to continue to use it but probably wont repurchase.
I love it!
I've always loved Benefit products, and this one is no exception. I love that you can put it on before or after you apply your makeup, because I'm notorious for forgetting things. I have combination skin (oily/dry), so the pores in my t-zone are typically a bit enlarged. I simply use a dab of POREfessional, and just like that, my pores are practically invisible. I will definitely be buying it again.
I have very noticable pores on and around my nose and I thought it would fill them but it actually covers them very well and im really impressed. Thats not it though! It also mattiflys my skin and keeps my foundation on longer.
I bought the Benefit "How to Look the Best at Everything" kit, and the Porefessional was included and ever since then, I've been using it nonstop under my concealer/foundation. My t-zone is quite oily and applying this product before any other face makeup really does make my makeup look a lot better thorough out the day. I would faithfully recommend this to anyone who has an oily skin or is looking for a good face primer. It's my Holy-Grail !
I have large pores in the winter time my mineral make up just looks bad so I switch to liquid the new UD Naked (love it) and bought this to help with my pores. Sometimes it looks like it works other times it looks like it messes up my make up. I won't be purchasing it again.
