        I wear this over my moisturizer and then I apply concealer and powder foundation. My make up goes on smoothly over it and my pores are not visible. I have not used this with liquid foundation so I do not know if the results are the same.

          I put this product on as soon as I get out of the shower to give it some time to soak in before I put on my BB foundation. And then apply it on again after I put on my BB cream. My oily skin is not a problem - ALL DAY LONG!

                  I have been needing to try a pore minimize , and I broke down and decided to try the POREfessional by Benefit. It is pricey. I found that it is really creamy and easy to apply. I would say that it covered well around nose and mouth and cheek area. A little goes a long way!

                            Benefit does not test for or claim that their products are hypo-allergenic (least likely to cause an allergic reaction) or non-comedogenic (does not cause pimples & blackheads). If you have a specific allergy, please consult your physician to determine if a product is suitable for your skin.

                            To help reduce oil, we recommend using this product in conjunction with The POREfessional Agent Zero Shine:
                            http://www.ulta.com/ulta/browse/productDetail.jsp?productId=xlsImpprod6330001

                            Using these two products together helps to keep skin mattified and flawless and makeup in place all day! Apply The POREfessional primer to bare or moisturized skin from the center of the face (T-zone) outward by patting lightly with fingertips, then follow with foundation, and finish with a light dusting of The POREfessional Agent Zero Shine all over the complexion.

                            It depends on individual usage, but you only need to use a pea-sized amount each time. If pores reappear, pat delicately on T-zone over makeup & blend.
