        didn't work

        By Lindsay

        from Raleigh, NC

        Comments about Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional Face Primer Mini:

        I have bigger pores/oily skin and applying it under my foundation doesn't blur or minimize the size of my pores at all. Disappointed because all the reviews I read said it was amazing, so I had hope it would work for me.

          Comments about Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional Face Primer Mini:

          Hated this primer - I tried it so many different ways. With moisturizer underneath, without moisturizer, buffing my foundation with a brush, or used a sponge. All of those ways didn't work and caked up my face massively. I would've returned this in a heartbeat but I threw away my receipt. Lesson learned.

          This product is amazing. I've tried other similar products before and none really did what they claimed they would do. I use this under my foundation and even before I put on my foundation, I love the way my skin looks just with the pore minimizing face primer. The only downside is how often I have to reapply.

          A good product to cover fine lines and to cover up a little sun damage on upper cheeks. Also use it to cover up a couple of big pores around nose area. I only use this product and my foundation and good to go!

                  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.
