          Comments about Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional Face Primer:

          I have very oily skin and large pores on my nose and on sides of nose. Not really anywhere else. I tried using this all over my face and found I really only need it in a few areas. I have a spot with 3 very large pores I've been trying to get rid of with skin care products. So I just used enough to cover this area and then I put my regular primer and foundation over it. My pores are hidden and a few were pretty deep. I had a sample size and will definitely be going to the store this weekend to purchase a full size bottle.

                I have combination skin, and never break out due to products. HOWEVER, this primer made my face feel extremely warm and once I took my makeup off I was very red in the places I used it. Very uncomfortable.

                              Hi gorgeous! Our POREfessional face primer 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 (Item #: 2268638)! This shine-control powder instantly minimizes shine and helps smooth the look of pores. The invisible translucent shade is perfect for every skin tone - wear it over POREfessional for maximum POREfection! xoxo B

                              Hi gorgeous! Benefit does not test for or claim that our products are hypo-allergenic (least likely to cause an allergic reaction) or non-comedogenic (does not cause pimples & blackheads). If you have a specific allergy, please take the ingredient list (which can be found on the product detail page) to your dermatologist to determine if a product is suitable for your skin.

                            have a very oily t-zone, ive struggled finding a good primer, would this help prevent shininess throughout the day as well as minimizing pores?
