          I bought this in the mini version that they make. I would suggest first-time buyers purchase this size because it's more affordable than the regular size of this product.

          I apply this before my foundation. It blends well into the skin, leaving no pigment. It is very soft and smooth, and after applying foundation, skin looks less blemished and even.

            Keep those pores under control! Mine are the worst in the T-Zone, but I don't have to worry about them when I use this product, which is everyday, unless I'm crashing from the day before!!! Try it!!! If you have visible pores, you will love it!

                    i told the salesperson i was looking for something to cover my large pores and she had me try this and i have been hooked ever since. it works great. i hate my large pores but this really helps and you would never know that you are wearing it. it is so light and goes on smooth. i suggest anyone who has this issue to try. you won't be disappointed.

                      This product is absolutely amazing! I had heard about it before I got it but was always hesitant because the price is a bit expensive. It was so worth every penny! It truly does create a flawless appearance. I have worn it while outside in the heat all day and while going out dancing at night. I am truly in aw of how it lasts through all of this. If you are hesitant about buying this, don't be. A little bit goes a long way and it really does last all day through any conditions!

                                Yes, The POREfessional can be used as a primer.

                                To use under makeup: Apply to moisturized skin to help makeup stay put. Focus on problem areas & blend with fingertips.

                                To use over makeup: Pat on lightly over makeup & blend.

                                Benefit Cosmetics does not test for or claim that any of their products are noncomedogenic (non-pore clogging) or nonacnegenic (non-blemish causing); this product is formulated for all skin types.

                                A:

                                With typical daily use, the mini size should last approximately 1 month. Please note that just a pea-sized amount is all that is needed, and that The POREfessional works best when applied to the T-zone or problem areas with visible pores, rather than applied all over the face.
