        I just started using this product so I do not know how it will affect my skin long term. Right now I find it light and takes the shine off my face. I have sensitive skin and so far it has not irritated my skin at all.

        I love this product! I started off by purchasing the $10 travel size and it has literally lasted me 5 months of almost daily use!! The travel size! I decided after I was finished with that tube I should get the full size. I saw there was a value size so I decided to purchase it and I was surprised with how big it is! It is longer than my hand! The amount of product in this tube will honestly last me a few years (hope it doesn't expire :P). My only complaint is when I first started to use it, it was a bit watery but that went away after a few uses! LOOOVE THIS DEAL! I would recommend any makeup artists to buy the value size since you would be able to use it on multiple clients and not run out of it so fast. Anyways, I would definitely recommend!!

          This covers the craters, otherwise known as pores, on my face. My pores are most visible on my nose and cheeks. This product covers my pores perfectly - so much that you wouldn't know I had such large pores.

          Comments about Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional Value Size:

          This product works at concealing my pores when I initially put it on, but within minutes, my pores are back to the drawing board. I wish it would hide my pores for more than 2 minutes. :(

            Comments about Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional Value Size:

            This product is quite good. When applied underneath or on top of foundation, it smoothes out wrinkles, large pores, and combats oiliness. I find it more effective when applied underneath foundation, or, if you are blessed with great skin, you could wear it sans foundation. When your face is as oily as mine, nothing can work all day, let alone longer than a few hours, but this product is the best I've encountered.

              Comments about Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional Value Size:

              I started with a sample tube of this and ended up buying the value size. I have very noticeable pores on my nose and cheeks and I love how this smooths them over and makes them much less noticeable. I like the silky texture and the slight fruity scent. I was using a similar product from Loreal but the smell was unbearable. My only complaint is that on my oily skin this product does kind of disappear after a few hours, so I have to touch-up on my nose.

              good, not great

              Comments about Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional Value Size:

              I like the primer and definitely notice a smoother appearance in my pores, but I'm not concerned about the appearance of my pores, so I would only get this in a value set.

                      Hi gorgeous!

                      The typical shelf life for our unopened products is 36 months. A quick shake of the tube before application should keep the POREfessional as good as new!

                      The typical shelf life for unopened products is 36 months. Try shaking the tube of the POREfessional before opening. The formula should still be A-OK!

                      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).

                      A:

                      Yes, if your main concern is to minimize the appearance of pores, you can certainly apply all over as a primer. Alternatively, you can spot treat areas of concern with The POREfessional, then apply another primer all over the face to target additional concerns, such as Stay Flawless to extend your makeup's wear to up to 15 hours, or "That Gal" to brighten up a dull complexion.
