Comments about Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional Mini:

I was looking for something that would hold my make up on all day. This product works really well; however, my makeup doesn't stay on all day. It's very smooth and doesn't clog pores. It's a great product overall.

                  I am on my third tube...loved it at first, then it seemed to not be so effective and I have to repeat applications carefully. I also use another brand which is a department store one, but this color is more blending.

                        Hi gorgeous!

                        You can definitely wear the POREfessional solo! Apply to clean, lightly moisturized skin. Pat on problem areas & blend with fingertips for instantly smooth skin!

                        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.
