                    I like the consistency of this product, but I honestly can't see any difference in my pores. I love benefit but I don't think this product actually works, I would not recommend this to anyone looking to minimize the appearance of pores because for me personally it hasn't done anything.

                        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.
