I found this was pretty much useless, unless worn on its own, with just a little loose powder on top.

It did a minimally ok job of smoothing out pores and making my skin look slightly more even.

HOWEVER, this refused to work with ANY foundation I owned. I tried using this under NARS, TWO FACED, ESTEE LAUDER, BECCA, L'OREAL, MAC.....I always get the same result of piling …

When I first put this on, it seemed to hide my pores really well and impressed me. As soon as I put on my foundation it began to get patchy instantly. I gave it another shot and used my bb cream on top of this primer instead but still the same obvious patchiness happened. I tried it again this time layering only a very small amount of foundation on top but it still came up patchy. I do not have …Read more

For many years my secret trick for disguising large pores was by cutting in half and completely drying out: a tube of Clinique's Pore Refining Solution in 'Instant Deep'. However as of the last 2 years, each time I've headed over to a Clinique counter I'm always told it's out of stock but not discontinued (out of stock for 2 years, everywhere, really?). I found that …Read more

This product is alright. I didn't notice any real difference when I used this because I could still see the pores on my nose. The product itself feels weird when it goes on your face. It feels like a silicone but it also feels like a powder as you rub it in. Overall its a decent primer but it doesn't really do much for filling in pores.

Porefessional minimizes my pores and mattifies my skin at the same time, without causing breakouts, something no other primer could do for me in the past. I find it's best to apply it to my fingers and tap it repeatedly into areas where my pores are huge and it just kind of fills them right up. I can use this with BB cream and get an almost flawless look. It's not perfect and it does …Read more

This is the first face product I have tried from Benefit.

The price is around £20-27 here in the UK. I consider this expensive for a primer.

Packaging is cute.

Product feels very siliconey. I have large pores on my cheeks so I asked for this for my birthday and I dislike the product. It does nothing for my pores. The product leaves bits on my face and doesn’t work …

I have gone through several tubes of Porefessional and it was my gateway product into more advanced make-up. I find that a little bit in my t-zone is all I need to cover up my rougher pores and unevenness.

On busy days, I may only add a touch of blush and powder and go. When I want to do a full face, I add a BB Cream or foundation plus concealer over it.

Either way, I find …

I wanted to love this product like so many people do but I just can't. Initially it does blur lines and pores but I find concealer and foundation do not apply exceptionally well over it. Its an OK primer, not worth the money in my opinion. It is also drying. I'm glad I got the mini size because I will not be repurchasing.

I had a prior review on this but as opposed to updating a very old review, that will probably not get seen again, I figured I’d write a new one.
I don’t really use this as a primer, and have never really ever considered it a primer. I think of it as more of a bb cream, with the benefit of helping minimise pores as well. I still use it to this day, especially when I’m not using a concealer …

PROS: Blurs fine lines and hides pores fairly well ????????

CONS: Contains silicone ????????

TIP: Definitely would NOT recommend for those with combo/oily skin that is prone to breakouts! My skin was completely clear and actually *glowing* before I started using this product. Fast forward three days and my skin looks a hot mess; mini-zits covering both my forehead/chin & …
