I actually purchased the big tube, without trying out first, because they don't sell this in my country. Silly me. I have tested this in all seasons of the year, with all skin need (dry and oily) and with many foundations and creams. I just refused to give up on it. I always like to test by applying to one side of my face only. Well, side with this primer under the foundation:-Has pores as visible as the other side when applied-Has pores more visible than the other side 6 hours later-I slightly more matte when applied-Is oilier (!!!) than the other side a few hours later-and therefore the foundation actually lasts for less time in the side with the primer.When the foundation breaks down, it gets patchy and obvious.So, what a mess... Indeed it feels wonderful when applied, and it really feels like it could do something for the pores. But it doesn't. Huge waste of money for me...

I love this product! The packaging is cute but nothing to shout about but its nice. The price point also isn't great (£24.50 for 22ml) I find all benefit products over priced though to be honest.This product is a creamy, silky cream like formula with a beige colour to it which smooths and blurs out the pores brilliantly. It lasts around 7 hours on my skin.This is probably best for combination/oily skin as it keeps the skin matte but if you have dry skin and would want to use it, I can't see why not as its not drying at all (on me)it has no smell to it that I can detect and it's gentle and doesn't irritate me!

I have sensitive skin with large pores on/around my nose and chin, and I also have an oily T-zone. I never thought about using a primer until one of the girls at Sephora who was applying my makeup mentioned it.. and after looking at reviews I decided to try out this one. I really like it. I apply it before my foundation, let it sit for about a minute, and then do the rest of my face. It really minimizes the pores on/around my nose and helps with my oily T-zone, keeping it matte throughout the day. Not too fond of the price, but then again I have no idea how much primers generally cost so no big complains here. I think I will try out some others after I'm finished with this tube! Would recommend it though :)

I love this product. I don't have very large pores so it doesn't make that much of a difference in that aspect but I love the way my foundation glides onto my skin after applying. One day I just dabbed some on my under eyes and was amazed at how smoothly my concealer blended! And my concealer didn't crease! Love it!

This primer is amazing. It does not have a super strong scent. I like that it dries to a matte finish and feels lightweight on the skin. My foundation goes on smoother, and it stays on. I have even found myself trying to squeeze every last drop of this product when it runs out.

I made an account just to write a review on how terrible this product is.I bought this because after seeing every youtuber use it I thought it was a holy grail item. No. NO. I have combination skin and rarely get dry patches, because i moisterize like crazy. I bought the MUFE Hd foundation along with this product for Christmas. This made my MUFE hd look horrible, but at the time I assumed it was the foundation itself. After using this under my usual bb cream, I noticed it still looked horrible. It made my bb cream (which is very lightweight) stick to every single pimple. Before using the porefessional, my bb cream completely smoothened out my pimples. Now, any foundation I used stuck to every pimple or dry spot. Also, my skin had been getting terribly dry and flaky, and I spent days trying to moisterize and get it back to normal, but silly me I continued to use the porefessional because I didn't know that it was the problem. After reading the reviews saying it made their skin flaky and dry, I Now realize that it's this product. I don't know how long it will take to get my skin back to normal but I pray it's soon. I will be returning this piece of crap.

Got this as a sample in a Sephora order, not sure what it's supposed to do but it did nothing at all whatsoever for my pores, they looked exactly the same. It feels like silicone, I don't see a point, glad it was a sample.

I know this review might be frowned upon being such a HG-status product lol but! I must be honest and share my experience with this product..Before I start, it is winter time, and I'm sure im not the only one who experiences changes in their skin. Im normally extremely oily in my t-zone 24/7 365 days of the year, but since I live in Canada and its winter time, I have drier areas on my face.So, for the past week or two, I tried applying the primer over THREE different moisturizers to see which would work best (L'oreal w/SPF, First aid beauty cream and Ole Henrikson creme), and dare I say the Porefessional turned into flakes off of my skin.. it was really weird. I tried patting it into my skin in my t-zone and it was fine, but it would still flake off the sides of my face.. So in the end, this product might be better for me in the warmer months or i have no idea... I returned this primer and purchased Smashbox's new pore minimizing primer, and it's been working really well.

After hearing so much praise for this primer, I was excited to give it a try. Unfortunately, I was thoroughly underwhelmed. Don't get me wrong, it's fine, but I didn't love it by any means. It didn't fill in my pores whatsoever. They looked exactly the same as they would without this. I'm going to keep it and use it up, but I'm going to continue my search for a HG primer once this is gone.
