This stuff is amazing! I got a package they had at Murale that came with 2 other products (the oil dabbing stick and face lotion, both of which I didn't really like) and this stuff was great! It doesn't have a pilling result like some primers do (where your makeup clumps), and it didn't make my skin break out the way the Tom Ford sample I tried did. I really like this product and will continue to use it!

First off, I don't use this as an over-all primer. I like using water-based primers the best and this primer is silicone based. Foundation primers with a silicone base is good for those with wrinkles, ice-pick scars, acne scars, etc.

I, myself, use this primer solely on my smile lines to stop my foundation from sinking into my smile lines and balling up. It works wonderfully and i don't have to worry about my makeup sinking into smile lines so I can smile all I want! Yay!!

The only reason I even have this product is because my friend gave me a sample size bottle that she had gotten at Sephora. She is always talking about this primer and giving it such high praise, saying it's one of her HG products, so I have to say I was pretty darn excited to give it a try. But it just doesn't work for me. I'm not a fan of primers in general because I just don't like the texture, and this stuff did nothing for my pores whatsoever. It does no harm, but no good either...it just does nothing. I can't afford high-end brands like that anyway, so I don't feel bad about not wanting to repurchase. I will say, though, the packaging is adorable!

Unfortunately this didn't work for me. One of my good friends introduced this product to me one day because I asked her what beauty products she used to make her skin look so smooth. She said it works wonders on pimples and pores. I decided to give porefessional a go. I normally use the Estée Lauder matte perfecting primer, but I decided to give it a go because of all of the great reviews I had read up on the product. When I opened it, I was impressed with the cute packaging. A lot of people say it's too small for the price, but you don't need to use much.

After I applied it to my T-zone (combination skin..) I wasn't really impressed with how it felt. It felt too... Slippery for me. Or at least in comparison to the Estée Lauder primer. At first I liked how my foundation looked. It looked smooth and I couldn't see anything wrong so I decided to see how it would last after a day at work.

After about 3 hours I was mortified. My face was shiny and my pores stood out like crazy, the most they've ever stood out. My face felt like it was tingling too. I tried the product again a few more days and it just didn't work out for me. I really wanted it to work because I had high expectations of this product. I applied it all different ways and still it just didn't suit me, but it made my friends skin look amazing.

I think I'll just stick to my Estée Lauder matte perfecting primer... It lasts all day and I've been using it for the last 3 years. It has never broken me out either.

I'd say give it a go, because everyone's skin is different.

Those who claim that it doesn't last long. I have a full size tube. I've been using it forever and still haven't finished half of it. All you need is a tiny little drop of the product. it should be a pea size, not a walnut size. That works magic.

I got this in the travel size and it has taken me a while to get it to work for me. But now I can't be without it. Definitely will repurchase full size. I have two patches of huge pores on either cheek, dead center. This is the only product that truly blurs them out. I'm so glad this exists!

It doesn't do anything except make your skin feel soft which isn't it's purpose. A load of crap!!

Woah, I am surprised at the bad reviews for this.

This is absolutely a HG product for me. The only primer that doesn't break me out, blurs my insanely huge pores (no other product does it as well) and it makes my foundation look flawless.

I can reapply in the middle of the day and mix it in with the foundation and its all perfect again. To me it feels almost like a pore filling, mattifying mousse.

I have combination skin and my nose gets greasy easily. I come from Scandinavia so the weather is on the cooler side. I wouldn't say it keeps me from going greasy, but thats really the only thing I can complain about.. That, and the insane price.

The former tube was TINY, I actually though it was a free tester when I got it.. Not a good thing. 7,5mL - ridiculously small with a huge price tag... If you used it on your entire face, you would use it up in a week!

However in my country they have since replaced the 7,5 with a 15mL tube, and you get it at a better price. I also only use it on my T-zone, mostly my nose.

I will keep repurchasing, however if I needed it for my entire face I would go for something else - otherwise it will be a costly affair!

Super pricey for such a tiny bottle...~$40
I think I went through 2-3 bottles before I decided to stop. My skin felt really nice and soft after I used it, but was ultimately too drying initially especially if you use a matte-finish foundation on top, then it will look cakey. But after a few hours when my face starts getting oily, then my skin starts to look natural.

Awful! This did absolutely nothing for me and just felt really drying on the skin! Luckily I only have sample sizes
