    I love this product to cover up my large pores. I apply it before putting on foundation when going out. If cover up pores and gives a smooth surface. Some days I just use the Porefessional to give a smooth loom to my skin.

              I use the Pore Professional right after my face cream. I like to apply it on my nose where I have larger pores, my forehead for wrinkles and around my eyes. The Pore Professional seems to erase my wrinkles and pores. I love this product.

                  It will definitely keep your skin looking blurred and soft finished, but it takes a bit of work to make sure it doesn't pill! Since it's silicone based, you want to do Moisturizer-> Benefit POREfessional -> Foundation. Pretty happy with it though1

                    I have large, visible pores on my cheeks next to my nose and this primer is HANDS DOWN THE BEST to cover little imperfections. It's got a tinted color that matched my skin tone so it was great at blending in. It feels so soft and velvety when I apply it. It holds my foundation well so it's a great buy.

                        Hi gorgeous! Our POREfessional is a primer so it is considered as makeup. This pore-minimizing primer is best for hiding the appearance of pores and fine lines for smoother-than-smooth skin. If you're looking to control all-over shine, we recommend the POREfessional: agent zero shine! This shine-control powder instantly minimizes shine and helps smooth the look of pores. The invisible translucent shade is perfect for every skin tone. xoxo B

                        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.
