I like the texture it gives my skin, but I think the consistency is a little thick. It could be a bit more fluid as it is chunky sometimes. It helps keep my foundation on longer and prevents it from flaking. I may buy this again, but I am going to check out other primers first.

I like this product but I don't think it's worth the money for such a small bottle. It has a lovely feel to it, and makes your skin very smooth.

I LOVE this product! It has a very light scent and blends into the skin without depositing any color, so it is good for all skin tones. A little goes a long way. The only complaint I have is that it does not last the entire day, I usually have to reapply at least once, sometimes twice on these really hot days. The only way BeneFit could improve on this product is if they strengthen the staying power.

I got this as a sample from Sephora and I love it! It makes my face feel nice and smooth. I'm wanting to get the full size soon!

Love love love! That's all that I can say. This stuff truly is amazing. My makeup stays in place all day, even in the heat of summer. 100% recommend.

I got a tester of this product free with a magazine...i bought the mag twice and then had to buy a full size porefessional. I've got oily/spot prone skin and as a result my pores tend to be on the showy side. Using this product makes my skin feel smooth - especially around the T zone - and that's no mean feat for my skin.

I don't even normally like BeneFit products - so I was surpised with this. Nothing really stops the oil coming through on my skin, but this certainly makes it look smoother (I use Clarins Everlasting foundation over the top).

This product is like a bad ex-boyfriend who you can’t live with or without. I will forever be on the fence about this.

I love the balm-like texture and how it looks tinted but goes on translucent. However, it was not easy to blend. After using it for a month, I found some tips that help me get the best result:

- First, a well-moisturized skin is a must because this product will not hydrate or nourish your skin like some primers would.
- Follow the instruction sheet from BeneFit - lightly pat it onto your skin. Don’t try to blend it out because it will disappear into nothing and lose its “pore covering” effect.
- Put on a little first, then add on if needed. Putting it on too much at once can create a patchy surface.

You have to play with it a few times to get a hang of it. I suggest asking for a free sample from your local retailer before buying full-size. Once you figure out how to best put it on, you will love the poreless effect it creates.

For everyday use, I still use my BE Prime Time as a primer, followed by Hello Flawless powder, then use Porefessional for some spots that still need coverage.

It’s not long lasting. I get 4 – 6 hours for one application. So, you need to carry it around for touch us throughout the day.

I really love this stuff although it does nothing for oil control. It does minimize pores. My skin looks instantly better just with Porefessional by itself. Its kinda pricey but lasts a while since a little bit goes a long way!

im new to primers but I a lady at the Benefit counter tried this on me under a foundation. its light and soft and mattifies your skin. so when you initially put it on, you get a good matte/smooth coverage, specially if you have oily t-zone like me. the real test was when I wore it to work for the whole day. I found by then end of the day it did make me less oily but only by a subtle change. I began experimenting using it under diff foundations...its pretty good to use under mineral powders as it fixes your powders in place, and some foundations that are oil free, or light weight. I gave this a 3 as it doesnt work wonders. i havent come across a product that works total wonders! but i would by it again if it were in sale, as it costs too much!

This product is beige-colored and waxy. After application it has a pleasing silky feel to it. On my fair skin it leaves no color, but it completely smoothes out my face and makes my pores disappear. I don't have any excessive pores or scarring though. It also seems to fix redness a bit too. I have trouble finding foundation that doesn't oxidize, so lately I've been mixing a bit of porefessional with my oil-free moisturizer and applying with my hands. It seems to help cut down some oil on my combination skin. The bonus is that it works just as well for touch ups even when I am wearing foundation. It has no coverage on its own, but it gives me a finished effect.
