              Bought a sample of this several months ago and I'm in LOVE with this product. I have sensitive, T-zone oily skin and some marks from teenage acne. This is sooo light I don't know I have it on. It covers, looks natural, doesn't come off, doesn't flake. I recently watched a video on "how to use", which I thought I kinda knew how to. It can also be used to "cover" wrinkles around the eye area and now I'm trying that out. Really love this product.

                  It truly covers pores. Id recommend this for oily to oily combo skin only because it's gives you that matt finish were you need it. It's a must for oily to oily combo skin types.

                  So I saw a youtube video on this and loved how they used it and they said a little goes a long way. Either my face is really fat or I'm using it wrong because it takes a decent amount to get these pores and fine lines to go away. It feels like velvet when it goes on my face and makes a huge difference, I just don't feel like the price is worth it.

                          Hi gorgeous! It really depends on how often you use it and how much you use. I would say that if used daily, it can last 4 to 5 months give or take. Our unopened products typically have a shelf life of 36 months.

If your pores reappear during the day, pat the POREfessional delicately on the T-zone over your makeup and blend. Just a dab'll do ya!

                          Hi gorgeous!

                          The POREfessional minimizes the appearance of pores and fine lines. Check out Boi-ing, our industrial-strength concealer - it camouflages dark circles, shadows & discoloration for a seamless, natural-looking finish without creasing or fading!

                          You can find Boi-ing here at ULTA: http://www.ulta.com/ulta/browse/productDetail.jsp?productId=xlsImpprod820380

                        Is this product too rich for the under eye area? I don't want a break out or milia.

                        Will this product work well if I have dry to normal skin? Will it also work in a humid climate?

                          The POREfessional is formulated for all skin types. It works equally well in humid, moderate, or dry climates!
