Comments about Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional Mini:

I got this tiny bottle I thought it was a sample and then I used it it's not the worst thing in the world but it wasn't like life changing ether I have large pores and very dry skin in the winter and it just don't do it for me I'm glad it was just the small bottle I tried the nyx pore stuff and it work better for me and a lot cheaper to.

It did nothing. It was also hard to tell if it was spread evenly. It made no difference in pore size or moisture. Nothing!

    Comments about Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional Mini:

    I bought this from the trial size and needed to write my experience for people who have the same issues as I do. I saw a youtube video claiming it was great. It worked for him. But not for me. I have severe acne scars, uneven skin, and big pores on my nose. This product filled it in but the moment I put my makeup on, it left white dry flakes all over my face, I use facial oil as my moisturizer, so there shouldn't have been an issue. I had better luck with smashbox's photo finish primer... A bit disappointed. But with uneven skin texture like me, it's always an experience.

          One of my favorite beauty bloggers uses this so I bought the mini to try. I liked it a lot but I'm still looking for my "can't live without" primer. The smell is amazing so I love putting it on. It did seem to blur out my pores when I put it on and let it sit for about a minute before putting foundation on. Definitely give this one a try!!!!

                    Thought it would minimize rather than filling in.

                        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.
