          It really covered my pores around my nose, since I have HUGE pores in that area. It provided a really nice base around there. My foundation went on really smooth and I didn't have any reactions to the product and I have sensitive skin. So I was really happy about that!

                  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!

                              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.

                              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.
