    Comments about Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional: Matte Rescue Invisible-Finish Mattifying Gel Mini:

    This product was recommended to me by an ulta employee to cover my pores. She said it could be used on its own to lessen the appearance of pores. It did little to nothing to cover my pores. It is more of a two step process, as described on the box. It is more for mattifying than pore-filling. If you are trying to cover pores then you can apply this one first and on top of it, apply a pores filling primer, it might work better this way.

                        The instructions state to apply over freshly cleansed face. My face is oily and pores are large and the sales person suggested this product. Should I still apply my moisturizer (Cervae) and if so before I apply the porefessional or after or not at all?
