Comments about Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional Mini:

The product is not for people with nodular acne - doesn't really cover anything up. Cakes up and flakes on my open sores. It is light and does not irritate though.

      Great primer, goes on smooth and easy. Smells great. 4 stars instead of 5 because sometimes right when you open it liquid stuff squirts out.

        I was just wanting to try out a pore minimizer and grabbed this one off the shelf, and I love it! I put it on most days before putting make up on or just alone. I have some larger pores from acne when I was younger and this definitely buffs them out.

            This works! I used a sample first. It completely covers your pores without showing at all. You use a tiny bit, sweep it on, and they disappear. It seems to last as well. I carry some in my purse, in case it's a long day, but I haven't used it yet.

              This product did not live up to the hype. I don't know if my pores are just too big for this product to handle but it didn't even cover my smallest pores. It didn't work at all.

                  I use this product under my foundation mainly on my cheek area because I have big pores and most fillers I use crumble off and this one was a smooth almost powdery in a good way and lies nicely under foundation. Have nothing bad to say about it : )

                            Yes, The POREfessional can be used as a primer.

                            To use under makeup: Apply to moisturized skin to help makeup stay put. Focus on problem areas & blend with fingertips.

                            To use over makeup: Pat on lightly over makeup & blend.

                            Benefit Cosmetics does not test for or claim that any of their products are noncomedogenic (non-pore clogging) or nonacnegenic (non-blemish causing); this product is formulated for all skin types.

                            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.
