I bought this thinking it would actually do what it claims to do. BIG MISTAKE! I tried this every way possible, from applying it in circular motions, just rubbing it in like a day cream, stippling it in with a brush and pressing in into my skin with my fingers and still... no luck. I would do one side of my face to compare to the other side without the product and there was literally no difference from one side of my face to the other. My regular face primer that does not claim to lessen the size of your pores actually does a better job. I would NOT recommend this to anyone. Save your money.
I did not have luck with this product. It emulsified my makeup everywhere I applied it. I put it on my cheeks, nose, t zone and mid-day my foundation would be nearing non existence in those areas. I can't find anything that works better than Benefit Porefector when it comes to this type of product.
Horrible...my make-up looked streaky and did nothing to "fill my pores". Some of their products are great. This is not one of them.
I don't love this under foundation. I really don't see much of a difference. The primer has some tackiness to it and it sometimes makes my foundation look "off" especially around my nose.
I LOVE this on days when I'm just wearing powder. Makes a HUGE difference!!!
FYI, if you love Porefessional, try this as a dupe. VERY similar in texture and result.
What's not to love about this!? The price is great for its performance! ($12.99) it works so well I've purchased about three so far now and use every last drop. I would say that's its a pretty good competitor against Benefit's Porefessional ($30 fullsize) because it works just as well as its a lot cheaper so definitely more bang for your buck. I absolutely love it! It really fills in my pores and I have really big pores on the sides of my nose from acne scarring and this fills em up and makes my face makeup look perfect! I wouldn't be without it. The tube is ok, it's a white tube with black writing. The only this i don't like about the tube is that it's not the same shiny plastic material like the cap and tends to get really dirty because it hangs onto everything so be careful. If you have makeup OCD like me you'll understand. I keep my makeup in the boxes it comes in to keep it looking nice and new. Haha it sounds strange I know but I'm sure not the only one. Anywho this product is great! It really lives up to its name.
This reduced my pore size but definitely didn't get rid of them completely. I didnt notice it helping my makeup last longer either. You don't get a lot of product either. Its alright but im sure there's something better out there.
I was so hoping to love this product but it does not perform. I works as an ok primer but filling pores? NO. I have used this with foundation right after application and waiting and there is no difference. My skin looks the same.
I tried rubbing it in, patting it in, buffing it on, and just applying it. No difference. Very disappointed in this and how much is cost.
Ok primer but does not "fill pores" for a porcelain finish lol.
I may or may not buy this again - to be honest I would not use something like this on a regular basis, it would be more for special occasions.
The claims on the packaging are exaggerated - to be honest I don't really think there is any product that will give your skin a porcelain finish unless it looks like that to begin with!
Still it does go on smoothly without adding unnecessary shine to my already excessively oily skin and it does prep the skin well so that foundation goes on easily & smoothly. I think I would like to see some more skin care benefits in the ingredients - the fewer products I use on my skin the better.
ok, i freaking LOVE this. i have had samples or bought at least 15+ primers/pore minimizers (most of which are pretty pricey), and this is far and above, the absolute BEST for reducing the appearance of pores. i like it better than the clinique stuff, better than that stuff i got at body shop (which is ok for keeping makeup out of pores, but makes the makeup sort of slide off your face after a while), better than smashbox, better than laura mercier, and way better than the other cheap/drug-store brands i've tried. it's not nearly as greasy feeling as some, and while it doesn't really do much (that i can tell) to prolong the makeup, it doesn't make it melt away either. i've got some rather large pores in a couple of spots on my face, and this makes them ALMOST disappear! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this stuff!
