        I purchased this product in a travel size from Ulta as a birthday gift one year ago. I could not help but to later on purchase the bigger size of it. This primer is great because it's true to its word on minimizing the appearance of pores and it works impressively as a face makeup primer in general. It always lasts satisfyingly long and holds my foundation, contour, concealer, and highlighter right in place for beyond several hours until I wash it all off. While using this primer it is never necessary for me to use a setting spray!

          This is the most perfect cosmetic product I have ever tried and is definitely one that I must have on hand! I have very dark circles under my eyes. After I wash my face, I use a moisturizer, then apply Pore Professional over my entire face. It makes it look and feel unbelievably smooth and soft. Sometimes I may use additional coverup under my eyes, but frequently, this is it for makeup! When I do use foundation over the Pore Professional, it takes much less for coverage.

            Comments about Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional Face Primer Value Size:

            I tried it out last night when I get it without foundation to see what the fuss was about before I waste my time in the morning trying to figure it out and WOW. For my pores I can't just press it in I have to swipe down and that's how it works best for me to see immediate results. The texture of this feels really nice. Glad I bought this massive size one hahaha

                      Hi gorgeous! Our POREfessional is a primer so it is considered as makeup. This pore-minimizing primer is best for hiding the appearance of pores and fine lines for smoother-than-smooth skin. If you're looking to control all-over shine, we recommend the POREfessional: agent zero shine! This shine-control powder instantly minimizes shine and helps smooth the look of pores. The invisible translucent shade is perfect for every skin tone. xoxo B

                      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.
