            Comments about Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional Face Primer Value Size:

            I bought this for my mom, and ended up buying another for myself. It completely smooths out any uneven skin texture, and my mom is so much less self-conscious about her pitted skin on her chin from skin cancer treatments. She wears this even without foundation and her skin still looks great. I like how smooth it goes on and isn't sticky or heavy feeling. My foundation looks air brushed when I wear this. Highly recommend!

                    I have tried several "pore minimizing" primers and this is by far my favorite. It goes on smoothly, feels very good on my skin, and it only takes a small amount.

                          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!

                          The typical shelf life for unopened products is 36 months. Try shaking the tube of the POREfessional before opening. The formula should still be A-OK!

                          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.
