      Comments about Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional Face Primer Mini:

      I fell in love with the feel and look of this primer and bought this 2nd tube for summer travel. I am still using my first tube that I bought a few months ago and when I'm finished I will be using the larger tube I bought along with this one. I like how silky and soft it feels when applying the primer to my face. Many times I don't use foundation over it if I'm not going out and about. I get a nice smooth look with it. I think it is well worth the price for such a great product.

                  I don't wear makeup often, I used the primer for a wedding. Looked great at first but was very hot out and eventually came off with sweat. I would attribute this to the temperature so I think overall the product looks and works great and would recommend it, maybe just lay off the dancing in 90degree weather!

                        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.
