I was lucky enough to have a lovely MUA from Benefit do my makeup for my engagement photos and this was one of the products she used. It was the first primer I ever bought and used and I think it's fairly good but not outstanding. It comes in a tube which is great because I feel you can get more of the product out and it has a lovely silky texture on the skin. It has a slight beige color than just fades into the skin once it's blended in. I do think it helps keep my foundation on my face longer, but it doesn't necessarily control oil well. (I'm combo skin with an oily T zone.) it also has a faint fragrance that doesn't bother me and that fades away shortly after application.

Overall I think it's a really good primer and fairly priced compared to the competitors, but it's not absolutely life changing.

This is the only primer I use on my face. I've tested a few others, but nothing comes close to the benefit POREfessional!

It is silky smooth and application is very easy. It noticeably smooths out fine lines and does a good job at masking enlarged pores. I like how the product is skin colored and the texture of my skin after applying is amazing. My makeup stays on smoothly and doesn't slip away when using this.

I have been using this product for about 3 years now, and I simply can't get enough of it.

It is quite expensive, especially for the little tube you get, but the quality of the product speaks for itself.

Will repurchase again and again!

LOVE. I have large pores on my cheeks as well as some scars and pitting from old acne. This stuff is so smooth and creamy and it fills in my pores and scares like none other. It is similar to the smashbox primer with oil control and I like to use them together, I use the smashbox all over my face and then this stuff to fill in the pores on my cheeks.. I do not use foundation so I can't comment as to whether it helps it stay longer. Overall I love this product and will definitely repurchase.

I have combination (normal to dry cheeks, oily t zone) and sensitive skin.

The color of this primer is a light nude color but is transparent once blended in. I only used it on areas where I have larger pores such as my nose and chin. It blurred and filled in those areas. I noticed a difference right away. This product has been used for almost a month. I didn't notice any drying or cracking once I applied my foundation over top. No irritation or clogging my pores.

I received this product (mini size)in a small gift bag when a Shoppers Drug Mart had a cosmetic gala. In other words it was free. I would purchase once I run out of my freebie.

This primer is silky smooth with some color to it. POREfessional becomes transparent once blended in. I only use this (the littlest amount) on my nose, cheeks, chin and between my eyebrows. A little goes a long way. It really does minimize pores and helps my makeup stay on longer. I like this primer and will repurchase. I suggest trying a sample size first because you either love it or hate it. Wish it was not as expensive. But as always.... SUPER impressed with Benefit's packaging and creativity with names and ideas for their products. They are killing it and I love buying their makeup because not only are they always cute-sy but a great makeup brand.

This is an amazing product that is worth all the hype associated with it! BeneFit has only gotten better for me over the years. Between this and their newer mascara offerings I couldn't be more pleased. I use this under all my foundations as of late, be they drugstore or high end. It keeps my makeup looking fresh longer and that is a feat! I have extremely oily skin and still love to wear makeup. This anchors everything to my face beautifully. Blurs pores and extends the longevity of face makeup. I love this. The best part is a little goes a long way so I have been using the same tube for over a year. I will certainly be repurchasing. Well done BeneFit!

This worked well but the scent is too strong! It literally felt and smelled as though I had rubbed perfume on my face. The fragrance lingered for at least an hour, after which I couldn't take it anymore. It was so bothersome, I had to wash my face and re-apply my makeup. If you are at all sensitive to fragrance, get a sample of this before purchasing!

I liked so much when I first got it, I loved that it blurs the pores, I was using this daily and it completely clogged my pores! It made bigger and a lot more noticeable! The complete opposite of its purpose. I will not repurchase. If you use it once a week it's fine but not for everyday use.

I received a full size tube of this primer from my mum a couple years ago, used it once and wasn't sure how it worked due to inexperience. More recently I have come back to it after watching people use it on youtube tutorials.

A little goes a long way and you get quite a bit of product for the price (22ml). The primer is slightly tinted orange/foundation coloured, and as someone with fair skin I was worried that it would be noticeable on the skin, but as you blend the primer in it melts into the skin and is transparent. I apply a tiny amount to my nose, inner cheeks, chin, and between my brows. I notice a slight diminishing of pore size, almost as if they have been blurred with photoshop. It also provides a slight matifying quality to the skin. This primer is very lightweight and silky, you definitely can't feel it on the skin once applied.

I am not sure if this product makes my foundation last any longer/better, I will continue to use this product and will edit this review if there are any significant effects.

I have had a couple of samples of this and given it the good college try. It goes on like silk and makes my face feel really smooth. But, and it's a big but, under foundation it accentuates every little line I have. Instantly aging. I do not have oily skin, so maybe that's the problem. I will stick with my Smashbox primer. (But I keep trying other things because I can't help myself).
