This does what it says. It hides your pores. I like the texture, I like the way it blends and everything else about it. It is expensive for what you get though. The L'oreal magic primer is very similar in the effectiveness and for much le$$ but if I have the extra money I'd buy the Benefit.
I just like the way this stuff shrinks my pores! But it's sooo expensive so I use pretty sparingly. Looking for something a little less pricey.. I'd probably buy it again if I couldn't find something cheaper that did the job too.
I bought the porefessional around a month ago because of the great reviews that I saw on youtube.
The pros: This definitely smoothed out my pores and skin when I put it on, making my naked skin liquid foundation look flawless on top. There is also a very pleasant floral scent that I love. After putting porefessional on, your face will have a silicone type of feel to it, reminded me of those silicone iphone cases. LOL
The cons: I am not sure if it was the humidity (since I tried it when I was on vacation to Hong Kong) that got to my skin, but this primer clogged up my skin tremendously! I started breaking out worse then my teenage years! I knew it had to be the primer since I had used my Urban Decay Liquid foundation in high humid areas before, and no breakouts.
I recently came back to the States, and am willing to try this product again under more normal conditions that my skin is used to. Will keep everyone posted!
My absolute HG primer. Smooths the skin and complexion sorted out beautifully. Foundation goes on really well after it and looks really nice and lasts well. Ive tried alot of primers and this one for me at this point in time, is definately the best! Love it so much!
I would give it a 4-star if only the price is not that high. And imho, as a general primer, it should've been a shade-for-all if not transparent. It's somewhat orangey, wouldn't recommend this for neutral or cool/pink skin tone. It's not bad but I prefer my LIOELE pore rich balm (it fits any skin tone and has the exact same fragrance as Benefit Porefessional and works better and way much cheaper). I prolly repurchase this if there's a huge sale like maybe 70% off? :p
Hides pores and controls oils throughout the day! Love this product!
Previously I have used Smashbox, Lancome, Rimmel and l'Oréal primers. This one beats all. The minute I apply it my skin does not shine anymore. When I apply my foundation over it it seems to stick to my skin right away and at the end of the day my makeup still looks all even. I'm happy I gave this a try. Will definitely repurchase.
Can't rave enough about this product. It's creamy without adding oiliness to my already oily skin. A little bit is all you need as it glides on effortlessly. I use it after washing my face before foundation and concealer and I see an obvious difference in the size of my pores and staying power of my foundation. I'm already on my second tube and can't get enough! Gives a noticeable flawless finish compared to wearing foundation without it. Love !
I love the powdery texture of this primer! And pores appear smaller too! But most importantly, I love how it glides through my skin when I mix it with "That Gal". THE RESULTS IS UH-MAZING! But it's not cheap and BeneFit cosmetics contains paraben. :( So I only use this when I'm going out for occasions and events.
It is amazing at controlling the oil my skin produces (which is a lot). It creates a flawless canvas for make-up application. I still have to blot during the day (less than I usually would) but pores look much smaller all day long.
