Quickly minimize the appearance of pores & fine lines for smoother-than-smooth skin! Apply this silky, lightweight balm alone, under or over makeup. Translucent, oil-free formula complements all skintones and helps makeup stay put. Contains a vitamin E derivative, known to protect skin from free radicals.

To use under makeup: Apply to clean, lightly moisturized skin. Pat on problem areas & blend with fingertips.

To use over makeup: Pat on lightly over makeup & blend.

Prime in the AM: Apply a thin layer of this PRO balm to clean, lightly moisturized skin. Pat lightly from the center of the face outward with fingertips. Wait seconds, then apply makeup as usual. Skin appears smooth & even. Isn't that what we're all looking for?

Apply whenever pores come out of hiding: If pores reappear, pat delicately on T-zone over makeup & blend. The lightweight, oil-free formula means a beautifully refined complexion. Remember, just a dab'll do ya!

Beauty tip: Apply a thin layer of the POREfessional PRO balm to clean, moisturized skin. Next, smooth on Stay Flawless starting at the outer areas of the nose, moving downward toward the jawline.

                    I bought this with high hopes. After using several times I really didn't notice any benefit to using it, and if you use too much it rolls and the only way to fix it is to wash it off and start over.

                        The POREfessional is a primer, so we recommend applying to clean, lightly moisturized skin and following with your favorite foundation. If your pores reappear in the afternoon, pat delicately on T-zone over makeup & blend. The lightweight, oil-free formula means a beautifully refined complexion!

                        A:

                        The POREfessional can be applied both before and after foundation, gorgeous! Just pat a small amount on problem areas and blend with fingertips.

                        To use the POREfessional as a primer, apply a thin layer to clean, lightly moisturized skin. Pat lightly from the center of the face outward with fingertips. Wait seconds, then apply makeup as usual. If pores reappear during the day, pat delicately on T-zone over makeup & blend.
