    Comments about Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional Mini:

    I was looking for a good primer, and a friend told me about this. So when I saw the mini size in the store, I grabbed it to try. I used it a couple of times, and I just wasn't impressed. It was okay, but it wasn't anything spectacular. I much prefer Smashbox's Photo Finish line.

      Comments about Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional Mini:

      I love this primer!! I have combination to oil skin. I am a woman of color and usually it's hard to find a good primer that doesn't make me even more oily than what I am. I use this as my everyday primer. I leaves my skin looking baby smooth before I even apply my foundation. Depending on the weather it pretty much last all day for me.

              I was disappointed, I thought it was going to be an amazing product because of all the great things that people said about it on YouTube and the reviews. But to be honest, I started using a face primer after I bought it and found that patting the face primer into my pores did a wayyy better job. And I use the ulta flawless primer, which says a lot lol. Get it on sale and it works awesome all over the face and fills in pores very well. This porefessional also has to be powdered up because it's very Dewey and your face looks shiny, I hate that in a product.

                    okay so i got a sample of this stuff and i was really excited because i have been looking for a really good primer (i dont usually use one) so i got the tiny amount that was in the sample and put it in the areas i needed. it instantly mattified and my pores disappeared so i got extremely excited! Then i went to put on foundation.. i use coverFX cream foundation and i dont know if i got a bad sample or it just doesnt work well with the foundation i use but it dried my skin out or something and there was rolls of it on my nose (where i have the biggest pores) and when i went to take my makeup off the rolls were still there but it was just dead skin. Maybe it had this affect because i used a facemask right before i put this on? Hopefully i will get another sample of this and try it on an average day but other than that it was a HUGE disappointment because it seemed to be so good without foundation on! I cant say if it has a good lasting power, but from what i saw it would have been good for the whole day, obviously i cant tell you if it actually is. So i recommend this probably just by itself from what ive seen :/

                          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.
