Comments about Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional Mini:

This product is amazing!! I read the reviews which were all consistently very good. I have dry,sensitive,red skin with large pores on my cheeks & nose. This product is so light & smooth. I watched the video on how to apply it which was helpful. This removed the shine & made my skin so smooth. On days that I wear makeup,I use a powder foundation that glides over this perfectly. I bought the travel size to make sure I liked it. I will be buying the full size next time.

    Comments about Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional Mini:

    This product was recommended to me as one to be used as a primer and assist with keeping make up on all day as well as showing a smoother complexion. A little bit goes a long way and is very easy to apply after your cream and prior to your make-up.

    I need a product to cover pores before applying make up This does the trick but too pricey for daily use. I enjoyed it but not practical for my budget. Am trying some other alternatives.

          The coverage provided was astonishing. I am normally very oily around my nose and tend to have big pores in this area, despite several attempts to change this. But with the POREfessional not only were my pores well covered but it helped reduce some shine around my nose

                I am fairly new to using pore minimizers, and I am pretty happy with this. I mostly use it on my nose and after about two coats it effectively minimized my large pores on my nose before applying makeup.

                I tend to have large pores but I have one in particular that is my nemesis!! It's very open and I have struggled with how to cover it. I think the application is very easy and the product is lightweight. It absolutely disguises the appearance of my super pore! I wish it lasted a little longer but it's no big deal to reapply mid-day because I can put it over my makeup. Great product, highly recommend!

                        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!

                        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.
