Quickly minimize the appearance of pores & fine lines for smoother-than-smooth skin! Apply this silky, lightweight balm alone, under or over makeup. Translucent, oil-free formula complements all skintones and helps makeup stay put. Contains a Vitamin E derivative, known to protect skin from free radicals.

To use under makeup: Apply to clean, lightly moisturized skin. Pat on problem areas & blend with fingertips.

To use over makeup: Pat on lightly over makeup & blend.

Prime in the AM: Apply a thin layer of this PRO balm to clean, lightly moisturized skin. Pat lightly from the center of the face outward with fingertips. Wait seconds, then apply makeup as usual. Skin appears smooth & even..isn't that what we're all looking for?

Apply whenever pores come out of hiding: If pores reappear, pat delicately on T-zone over makeup & blend. The lightweight, oil-free formula means a beautifully refined complexion. Remember, just a dab'll do ya!

        This product did nothing for me. In fact an hr later it made me look greasy. An Ulta associate suggested I try the Porefessional Matte Rescue Gel instead.

          I use this under my foundation and it works great!! It feels so silky smooth when you put it on and it covers my pores and blemishes! I have sensitive skin and was a little nervous at first for a new product but I am glad I tried it, it is a staple in my daily makeup routine now!

              I can see the difference when I put this on under my makeup. But it doesn't seem to last all day when I need it to. I've yet to find a good product that does. Also, it's been marketed to me by a prestige sales rep that this will help smooth and fill in the lines under my eyes. I've yet to see that happen.

              I recieved a free sample and on me it doesn't stay on. Maybe my skin is too oily? But it also didn't seem to minimize my pores. I tried adjusting the amount and it didn't help. If you have dry skin it might work.

                    The typical shelf life for our unopened products is 36 months. A quick shake of the tube before application should keep the POREfessional as good as new!

                    A:

                    Yes, if your main concern is to minimize the appearance of pores, you can certainly apply all over as a primer. Alternatively, you can spot treat areas of concern with The POREfessional, then apply another primer all over the face to target additional concerns, such as Stay Flawless to extend your makeup's wear to up to 15 hours, or "That Gal" to brighten up a dull complexion.
