I received this as a free gift from a seller on ebay when something was missing from a previous order and boy am I glad I did!! I really love this product. At first I was put off by it's texture and tendency to crease. I wear sun cream everyday on my face under makeup, which is rather greasy, and this product was sliding all over the place and gathering into yellow lines above my eyes, which was perhaps not the look I was going for. However, having consulted some of the reviews on here, I decided to take one reviewer's advice to fix the lemon aid with a powder. I never wear eye shadow so it seemed strange to put powder on my lids but it works like a dream. I have redness and veins around my eyes and this stuff works wonders at even-ing that out and giving a bright, wide-eyed overall look. I have actually replaced touche eclat with this, and I much prefer this. I place it all over my eyelids and up to my brows and then I place it either side of the top of my nose into the corners of my eyes and it makes you look really fresh and gives a glow. I love this product....sure you have to fix it maybe a few hours into wear, but when fixed with powder it has good staying power. I would not pay full price, but you can pick this up for under a fiver on ebay and I would recommend it!!

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.
