        This product does it job, BUT I feel like it doesn't minimize my pores around my nose. Thinking about returning this one and buy the other one (POREfessinal) to see if that one helps a little more. Still it's a very good product. Keeps u matte throughout the day and it goes on smoothly.

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

                I bought this product after trying the Porefessional primer (which was a great product, but kind of pricey for the size). I have combination skin that is SUPER shiny in the T Zone within an hour or two after applying makeup. This product has actually made me MORE shiny and I find myself blotting or applying matte powder multiple times before lunch. This was a total waste of a fairly hefty amount of money. I wish I stuck with the primer.

I recommend adding POREfessional Face Primer to your regimen after applying our Matte Rescue, shine and fine lines are less visible, and makeup glides on so smoothly!

                              The POREfessional: Matte Rescue is not a moisturizer. It's a lightweight, water-based gel that overpowers shine and absorbs excess surface oil. We recommend applying Matte Rescue after your morning skincare routine (which should include moisturizer!).
