      I used this product initially because I heard how amazing it is at blurring pores. So glad I took a chance! This product does that and my makeup application appears much smoother.

          I was looking forward to using this product... Once I applied the product, I was extremely disappointed with the results. It does work as they claim.. My pores looked the same.. Meaning, the product didn't blur my pores in the least...

                  This product does make pores seem as if they aren't there. I applied it before my makeup and my "pore" spots looked great. It did however clog my pores and cause me to get a few black heads. For me it's not worth it. I would use only for a special event where many photos may take place.

                          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.
