        Great product by itself or combined with additional cosmetics! It smoothed over my problematic large pores without being heavy or noticeable. Left my skin smooth and even. It's such a secret weapon!

                  I wish this product dried a little more, some foundations can move it around. Overall this works better than any of the drug store versions for me including the NYX one. It fills in the pores around more nose nicely I wish they made one that could fill in minor acne scar depressions.

                          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.
