              I have terrible undereye bags due to chronic illness - who wants to LOOK sick all the time? - and no other concealer has done anything for me. But the Porefessional Primer has gone a long way toward improving the appearance of this awful problem even if I can't actually shrink the bags. I love it and am so happy I finally found this stuff!

                  Comments about Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional Face Primer Mini:

                  I was very excited to try this primer because I had read such great reviews on it. Sadly, it did not live up to the hype. I have tried many different brands of primers- Clinique, Maybelline, Makeupforever, Too Faced, Neutrogena, etc. This was one of the most disappointing ones. It didn't seem to make my makeup last any longer and I could feel it on my face all day- it feels a little oily. Others described this as a miracle and that they could never live without it....unfortunately for me, it was a waste of money.

                          I've never tried a pore minimizing balm before. This stuff is amazing! Your pores disappear after using it and your foundation goes on easily. Purchased the travel size now I'm going to purchase the regular sizes one! My 11 yo daughter even noticed the difference when I used this product!

                            Does this have a smell to it? Most primers I've used have a horrid smell to them

                              Hi gorgeous! Our POREfessional Face primer has a very light scent, that can't be smelt when on the face, only when applying.
