      Comments about Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional Face Primer Mini:

      This product does an amazing job at minimizing my pores as well as giving me a smooth base before foundation. It makes my foundation look smooth and prolongs the wear of it. I am super oily and since using this i have stayed matte most of the day (and i live in extremely humid weather). This is a bit expensive, but so worth the money.

                          Hi gorgeous! I would say that if used daily, it can last 2 to 3 months give or take. Our unopened products typically have a shelf life of 36 months. xoxo B
