Everyday I put this on before my regular makeup, it is perfect and flawless I love it
I bought this to use along with the Benefit The POREFessional Agent Zero Shine powder and let me tell you, this stuff disappoints. Raved about by the two ULTA consultants working in that area of the store that day, this product did not work for me. I explained to them how I get oily by midday right at the sides of my nose and onto the cheeks, chin, and forehead and they swore this along with the powder would work. I'm here to tell you it DIDN'T and to make matters WORSE, I was becoming oily even BEFORE midday, after having applied my makeup around 5:15am daily. I sooooo wanted to like this product and was hoping it'd become my holy grail. Instead it'll be finding it's way back to the store to be returned for something else along with its non functional powder sidekick. TBNT!!

Dannol from Morganton, NC
Hello. 40 year old male skin here. The T zone has been crazy this summer. My face is a shiny mess within a couple hours of washing it. I bought this yesterday and washed my face around lunch and applied this and it actually held up until my nightly. Very impressed. This is the only product of this kind that I've used but I'm loving that my face isn't shiny and my pores appear smaller at first glance. I will definitely be trying their other product as many reviews said it's better but I'm very happy with this one and would buy again. Current regimen is a face wash at night and apply moisturizer, face wash in morning with warm water and apply moisturizer and then apply this after it dries. Reapply as needed throughout day. (Usually once or twice)
Unhappy from Cincinnati
I asked for something to help with oil control this is what she recommended. Made my face more oily and makeup smeared off throughout the day. Again said I could return it if I didn't like it and yet again I can't
Liz22 from San Antonio
I use this product as a primer to hydrate my face before I apply foundation and makeup. I have normal to oily skin so I love this product because it doesn't feel oily. It dries matte and makes my makeup last longer without me getting oily right away during the day.
Iris from Las Vegas
I've tried sooo many primers and for the first time I try one I love! I'm a customer for life now. I recommend to anyone who has oily skin.

Use before applying make up Cuts down on shine
Mrs. E from College Station, TX
I have a problem finding a matte primer that does not make me break out and this has by far been my favorite product!
Sandy from San Pedro, CA
I have tried numerous brands (i.e. SmashBox, Lancôme, etc.), mainly due to receiving samples and I always return to the POREfessional. Great product.
Jenn from Battle Creek
The product is a matte finish but within an hour your face looks like an oil slick.
Nat from Upland
I mainly bought this product for my nose, no matter how much make up or concealer or even primer I use my foundation and powder never stayed ! I'm not lying, but then I bought this and OMG !!!! It's amazing even when using a mask my make up on my nose is still on. I'm so happy I was recommended this product.
Bri from Philadelphia PA
I have very very oily skin and this product say that it's a matte rescue but it really isn't. Does not keep your face matte at all. This was very disappointing I think I will stick to the smash box oil control stick.
Clr_74 from Wellington, FL
This product is fantastic! I haven't been wearing a lot of makeup, other than eyes, because I wear a mask all day. However, I've noticed that my oil secretion has increased, due to the mask. I decided to try this & am ao glad that I did. It smoothed on nicely & immediately soften & blurred my pores. Later in the day, I had some oils in my T zone but no where what I would normally get. I can't wait to try this under foundation.
Nurse Mare from Cincinnati
I previously used the regular porefessional but the associate at Ulta hyped this up and I am so glad she did. I have never had something control my oily nose all day long as good as this does. I am impressed!
Facecard from Centerline, MI
This product is so amazing!! I apply this about 5mins before I lay my foundation over it to let it get acclimated with my skin and do its job properly and it does it very well!! I don't write reviews but for this I had to!! I have super oily skin and this keeps my oils away throughout the day and holds my foundation in place. Haven't had a primer perform the way this one does for my skin. It makes my skin look even and smooth for my makeup application and I have problem skin! Definitely recommend this to those with my same skin type.
Jay from Nc
Covers and helps with pores. Didnt stay matte long
Linds from Sacramento
I have naturally oily skin and by the end of the day I'm usually looking pretty shiny. I noticed a considerable difference after just my first use of this primer. I didn't have to blot my face or reapply powder all day!!
Purchasing the full size of what is now an essential part of my makeup routine!
SC from Dallas TX
I have oily acne prone skin.
I have tried this product alone, i have tried this product with makeup, and i have done my makeup without it, and my face was the same. So i would pass if you have EXTREMELY oily skin and if you need something to handle 8 plus hours of wear.
(i will say that it did a good job for about 3- hours)
On a side note, this did not break me out or interact negatively with my proactiv- which is why i gave it three starts.
Kay from Wisconsin
Multiple ulta consultants recommended porefessional. I personally wasn't impressed. It does reduce some shine, but doesnt control my oil. I feel it breaks me out as well. Will not be repurchasing.
Christine from Dallas tx
This primer is amazing for normal to oily skin! Normal mattifying primers make my skin look caked and nasty. This gives the perfect sticky base to hold your foundation ALL DAY! I will be keeping this as my new go to primer 🙌🏻
sagangspann from Georgia
I had very high hopes for the product because I have EXTREMELY oily skin and even with powder and setting spray, I still get very shiny. After using it for a few days, I did notice my T-Zone shine didn't come back as quickly as usual, but I had a ton of little pimples all where I applied this product! I decided to give it a rest and my breakouts started going away. I'm gonna give it another try, but beware if you have breakout prone skin! I don't know if i'm sensitive to a specific ingredient, or if this product wasn't formulated for my skin, but be cautious if you have acne prone skin!
Miyuki from Utah
I decided to try this out, and couldn't believe how mattifying it was! The oil from my face disappeared completely and stayed away far longer than with any other product.
Casey from Biloxi, Ms
I have unbelievably oily skin. Just two or three hours and I'm already blotting, wash my hair twice a day type of oily. Living on the coast in humid weather year round type of oily. With dry patches. This last upwards of 9-10 hours without needing to blot once, it stayed well under my foundation which I think made it last longer, and it did not cling to a single dry patch. I bought the trial size to see if I'd like it before committing to a larger bottle, but I will definitely rebuy this product. The consistency isn't really "powdery" compared to the other porefessional products, it's a clear gel that dries matte.
Pam56 from Oxford, MS
I like this makeup primer...it does help keep makeup in place...it does not hide all the imperfections of my pores.
Vanessa from Fremont, CA
Loving this gel primer, it was a perfect start to my routine!
