This product is very lovely and gentle on the skin, it feels very nice and makes my skin look smooth. This would be an ideal traveling product just to brighten up the face. I love the smoothness and the finish of this product. I wear little make up and if i wear this on its own its enough to give me a flawless look. I will buy this product again :D

I purchased this product because I have very very VERY large pores. I also have very oily skin.
I will admit that when I applied it, it felt very silky. I really like how it felt. I didn`t notice any big approvement to my pores.
also it could be the foundation I`m using but I feel like it makes my foundation just sit there and not blend like it usually does.

I bought this product because I hate the large pores on my cheeks, and I thought I would give this a shot and see if it worked.
Nope. Didnt work. At all. Noticed no difference what so ever. Also, its 35 dollars canadian plus tax, so even if I did like it, I would probably feel guilty repurchasing this, considering I'm a student on a budget.
I tried this for 3 days, then returned it.

Good product, the small tube is very portable and good for traveling/touch ups. The price is cheap for the tiny amount you need each time.
Does what it's made for, hiding all your pores! I used this for my wedding day makeup and it hid everything even before I put on my foundation, which made my makeup look even more natural. My husband wore a bit of this product on his nose area too, to hide pores and matify the shininess he may get during the day. If it performed during a long wedding day, I'd say it's a good product!

I am a great Benefit Fan, every make up product I use is from this brand. I discovered Dr Feelgood a few month ago and, though it's a bit hard to find the good way for you to use it, I really like it. Except on my nose, I really have the feeling it makes my pores look bigger. That's when The Porefessional comes in! I love it's silky texture, the fact that I only have to use a tiny bit (as it's only for my nose). It blends easily and does a better job than Dr Feelgood at hiding my pores.
Of course, it's not really handy to have to use 2 different primers according the spot on your face where you want to use it, but as I'm a make-up addict, I really don't mind having 200 products on my bathroom shelve :)

This is my first review for makeupAlley although I visit frequently before making any related purchases. I felt compelled to write a review for this product because I really like it and it is one of those rare products that has actually made a big difference to the way I feel about myself.
Firstly, I purchased this when I began to notice that the pores on my nose were enlarged. I was getting black heads and generally bad skin on my T-zone - could have been because I just came off the pill, not sure. Anyway, originally I really didn't like this product. I was either using it as a primer just on my T-zone or just dabbing it onto my T-zone over make-up and I felt that it was messy and just clashed with my foundation/concealer (I use a very pale Bobbi Brown - possibly 2nd to lightest)
However, one day I ended up having an impromptu makeover at the Benefit counter when I asked about their new mascara. The lady working there removed all of my makeup and applied Porefessional all over my face. She then applied blusher and mascara. My skin looked great and she hadn't used any foundation or concealer.
From then on I started to experiment with this product and now I simply adore it. What I do is apply suncream (which I wear everyday on my face), which is pretty oily. Then I apply the Porefessional all over my face. Sometimes I will apply a bit of foundation on my chin and a little concealer, but on my T-zone I wear nothing but this product. My skin has never looked better. I can't believe how much I like this product. It doesn't look like you are wearing make-up. I have been getting compliments on my complexion recently and it is no coincidence. I actually think my skin is looking better make-up free too because this product is oil free and I guess your skin can breath under it.
Basically, I can't recommend highly enough. I used to lug my whole make-up bag along with me on a night out/in the day, whereas these days I literally just take blotting papers and the Porefessional. I ordered mine off ebay in multiple tester sizes, so the tiny tube will fit in even the smallest of bags.

This works really well to eliminate pores/shine from my nose and forehead. I like that you can use it as a spot treatment and that you don't have to use it all over the face where it may be unnessary. I have tried it as a primer before foundation, but I wouldn't use it for that again. It really is to use for areas that produce a lot of oil and for pores are visible.

It does make my pores look smaller. Thirty dollars for a small tube.
UPDATE: This leave my skin looking oily throughout the day

I put this product onto my t-zone and it immediately blurs my pores! It also makes my skin feel super smooth! The only thing stopping me from repurchasing it when I run out is the price :/

I have used Dr. Brandt Pores No More for several years. When mine recently ran out I went looking for a new primer. I always loved PnM, but at 50 dollars per tube, I thought it was too much. The SA at sephora showed me this product, since the main ingredients, purpose, and texture are very similar to PnM, and while you get a bit less of the product with Porefessional, it's about 15 dollars cheaper. I gave it a try and I love it! It hides pores better than Dr. Brandt, I think, and it mattifies well, too. I feel like i have to use a little bit more of this product, perhaps, so I'm not exactly sure how long it will last given that the tube is smaller. I wish they offered a bigger tube of it, because with daily use it will probably run out quickly. It's a keeper and definitely worth trying if you like Pores no More. This one seems to have more of an emphasis on perfecting and being a makeup, whereas PnM is represented as skin care (since it has tea tree oil in it), but if you use good skin care and exfoliate, the silicone in here shouldn't be an issue.

Got this in a sample set from sephora. Absolutely LOVE this! Was a bit skeptical about how it claimed to fill pores because I am acne-prone and don't want anything clogging my pores. Even though I don't have visible pores, this made my skin so smooth and so much easier to apply my face makeup. My only con about this product is that it is silicone based which I usually try to avoid but overall I love how it feels on my skin. Definitely purchasing the full size!

I'm by no means an expert in primers. SA got me to buy this, I have no idea how she managed to do it, because usually I have no interest in primers. I do have large pores though. After this was sitting around for a few weeks not being used I gave it a try and really disliked it. I used to much. The thing is you have to use a teeny tiny amount for your whole face (just like some reviewers mentioned before). Then it will smooth out your pores and also mattifies nicely. If you use to much, your foundation will go on streaky and glide off after a while.
Overall I quite like it, but I'm not sure if it breaks me out or not. Sometimes I think it does, so I don't use it every day. Overall an OK product, but I could live without it. Like most benefit products I think it's overhyped.

I have huge pores due to my very oily skin, and this helps to conceal them pretty effectively. The key is not to use this under liquid foundation but over it, then set it with powder. It can even be blended onto powder, it may be patchy and uneven at first but upon blending it and setting with powder, it will turn out fine.
As my skin is super oily my pores will show again after a few hours but this is remarkable considering I am the oiliest person I know. Also a little goes a long way, so despite this being an expensive product it is worth it as it should last for some time.
Edit: After six months of usage, it broke me out seriously. I apply this on my t-zone, and my t-zone had lots of clogged pores that become pimples, or worse, cysts. After this I tried Clinique's primer, thinking it would be different, but the same outbreak. I realised I am too sensitive to silicone, which are heavily present in primers. I have stopped using primers now.

I don't really notice much of a difference when I use this. My foundation might look just a slight bit smoother over it, but it's not enough of a difference to really notice.
I'm also pretty sure that this product is the cause of the breakout that I had within a few days of starting to use it.

This is a great product that really minimizes the appearance of large pores. I love it.

As primers go, this is a good one for me! While it might not obliterate pores, it does minimize them somewhat and it provides a really good base for any of the liquid or powder foundations I've applied over top of it. Keeps foundation looking fresh pretty much all day long and helps keep oils from seeping through and "breaking down" my foundation. While not really "holy grail", I am quite pleased with this primer, though I do want to try TF Primed and Poreless.

I really love this product and wear it either under my powder foundation or alone when I don't feel like doing my whole face up. I have huge pores (you can count them!) on my upper cheek area, t-zone and nose and this really does make a difference in making my skin appear smoother all over. It also masks the redness of my t-zone. The biggest plus for me was unlike the few other primers I've tried, it has never made me break out! I'd give it a 5, but I haven't tried many primers but it is the best I have tried.

Odd product. Had a bit of disaster scenario when the SA used this on me together with Some kinda Gorgeous - it looked alright until I got out of the shop and then proceded to slide all over my face. To the point where I went into the nexts Boots I came across and bought make-up remover wipes. That bad.
At home, I tried the combination again, and it took me a few tries to realise that this is a product you wnat to use in MINUTE amounts. Really, the less you use, the better it works. With this I can even use Bourjois Healthy Mix, which usually creeps into the pores over my nose.
Applied it does feel a bit weird - it's predominantly silicone base, so it feels quite...slippy, I guess is the word I's be looking for. I only apply this over mynose and just to the side of it - no breakouts after almost daily wear for about 3 weeks.

I received a bunch of samples of this product when i made a purchase at Ulta recently. I don't have very visible pores on my face or anything but this product minimizes pores which in return, slows down the oil production on the t-zone area. (my t-zone gets very oily a few hours after i put makeup on despite primers and oil free lotion and matte foundation :/) The first time i wore it, i didn't notice any difference. The second and third time i wore it, my friend commented on how good and matte my face looked even though it was towards the end of the night. I think for oil control, this is a good primer to use. Since it IS only for your t-zone, your cheeks and the rest of your face are left without primer for your foundation. unless you incorporate another primer along with it. n that to me, is just wayy too much work for me ;)
