      Comments about Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional:

      I have an oily t-zone and after getting out of the shower job the morning my pores are huge! I apply the pore primer before makeup and my pores disappear almost immediately! Also minimizes oiliness throughout the day. Totally recommend!

          Luv this product! ULTA was out of the long time gray tube pore control and the ULTA employee suggested I try this Benefit product. Fabulous! Thank you ULTA once again for a top quality product for my daily beauty routine.

          Unbelievable

          Comments about Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional:

          My daughter got a sample of this product and it to me. I just started getting large pores nose. Even if I put make up on, I can still see them.
          I put a little of this product on my nose, and I could not believe it.. My pores were no longer visible!!!! This is my first review ever. I just couldn't believe it! I'm not sure if this product treats the problem, but it sure does mask it!!

            I have large pores on my nose and was looking for something to cover them up. Foundation just wasn't cutting it, no matter what I tried. I like this product. I don't believe any makeup lasts all day, but this looks great when I put it on and lasts a while. Feels great on too!

              Maybe my expectations were too high, but I wish it refined my pores a little bit more. Goes on smooth though and holds my makeup. It works best with agent zero shine

                    Yes, exactly! It helps to both seal in your moisturizer and smooth skin for even makeup application.

                    This product does not provide much hydration and serves primarily as a pore minimizing primer. If you're seeking a moisturizer and primer in one, we recommend Benefit Cosmetics Big Easy, which serves as a tinted moisturizer, perfecting primer, and sunscreen, all in one product!
