    Comments about Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional:

    I use this product for the pores on my nose and around it. I also use it on my mustache area, lines around the mouth, and lines on eye lids. Great Stuff, I've gotten more complements about my skin and how I don't look as old as I am. Its great to just put on certain area's and then apply a little bronzer and mascara and your ready to go.

      By Michaela

      from Indianapolis, IN

      Comments about Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional:

      My skin usually doesn't break out. Ever. When i used this I broke out on my chin, forehead, and cheeks. Also, when applying with my clean fingers, it left an appalling residue on my fingers. It also clumped up my foundation when applying with a brush.

          I have enlarged pores across my nose and this was recommended by the staff at the ulta store. It doesn't minimize the appearance of these pores. I'm disappointed that the product is ineffective yet so expensive. Also not here for benefit's bon qui qui campaign.

            I apply this product over my moisturizer, then apply my bare minerals make-up on top with a big fluffy brush. I love the way my skin looks, I get compliments all the time about my make-up and I know the only change in my routine has been this primer! I just wish they made a slightly darker color for brown girls.

              I keep receiving this product as a gift from my mother, who knows how much I love this makeup line, Unfortunately I really don't like this primer! Everytime I use it, it lightens my skin to the point of making me look sickly. So I have two bottles of it sitting in my beauty bag :(

              I have large pores and extra oily skin.
              The product covers my pores perfectly but because I'm oily, it seems like it doesn't really last all day.

                  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.

                  A:

                  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.
