Comments about Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional Face Primer Value Size:

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.

Comments about Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional Face Primer Value Size:

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.

                  It's like a cream to powder primer. I think it really just blurs out any imperfections and leaves your foundation looking nice and smooth.

                        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.
