Most Helpful Positive Review Frying Chicken on Forehead Gone!
I originally asked the rep for blotting papers throughout the day. I could see her checking herself out on my mirror-shiny forehead. After giving herself a once-over, she recommended I try this Porefessional. I was sold after she let me sample it. The texture of the small dab and how it molded into my forehead, immediately removing grease and the yucky feel of oil, had me astonished. I love this product and will not leave the house without it on anymore. Luckily, it has such staying power that I don't need to reapply for almost the entire day. If you suffer from you-can-fry-that-chicken-on-my-skin-grease disease like I do, I'll tell you that this is the cure!

i have acne prone skin (extremly oily) i liked the way it felt when i first put it on, but sure enough within an hour my skin was extremly oily. this product did not help control my oily shine at all! it contributed. i really didn't see a difference with my pores either. I have enlarged pores (especially around my nose... where i also have alot of oil and shine)and my pores didn't seem to have the apparence of disapearing or looking smaller. was disapointed with this product, especially for its price.

This primer is great for oily skin. Gives me more of a matte finish and provides some pore coverage. The price however seems ridiculous to me for the amount of product in the tube.
makes my pores disapear with or without makeup.

Rub into areas with enlarged pores. Can be used to conceal some fine lines also.
love this product much but it's pricey for the amount
Jack from KY
I never wear foundation or anything but concealer so this is perfect for me. It's super soft and helps me so much with oily skin. I wear it every day just to help with oiliness and to give my skin that matte look. I only use a pea sized amount so when I ran out after only having it for about a month, I was bummed. It's too expensive to not be a completely filled tube, this isn't a chip bag!!! I love the product but am gritting my teeth as I place another order for some because I do not feel like I got what I should've!
Holy WOW I love this :)

The only primer I use!
didnt work for me
gretta from pennsylvania
this did not do anything for my pores. i have large pores around my nose & i noticed no difference after using this product with make up or without make up, whereas other pore-shrinking primers noticeably shrink my pores & make my skin look smoother.
best at covering my pores
Ris from Wisconsin
I've tried several primers including fenty, Laura mercier and hourglass, and keep going back to this one as it's the best at covering my larger pores on my nose and cheeks. It works great on my oily skin.
Crissy from USA
I used to love this product and when I recently repurchased I wasn't a fan. It leaves me flakey especially by my eyebrow area. I haven't noticed a difference as to whether my makeup stays as well. I have oily skin and it seems like my makeup still breaks down by the end of the day
My top MUST-HAVE item
Ashley from MO
I have combination skin and I usually shop budget products but this is my #1 absolute must-have beauty item. It's a little pricey for the amount you receive but to me it's definitely worth it. I make sure I'm always stocked with it so I never run out. There's a very noticeable difference in my face and makeup when I use it vs when I don't. When I use it, my makeup lasts longer, is smoother, and doesn't get oily/shiny. My skin looks much more flawless when I use this primer. It's truly fantastic!
Not a fan
Tamz69 from Richmond, VA
I've never seen where a primer leaves a caked up and balled up residue when applying to the skin. I used it on top of my moisturizer and it caked up in little balls almost like dead skin peeling off. I've used this twice and just got the tube. Think I'm going to stick to Smashbox.

I love this product. It is a great primer for every day use.
Gabby from Illinois
This Is My Fav Of All Time! I Am Not Comfortable If I Dont Have This Primer On My Face! Love It 😍 It Is Soft, Not Sticky At All, Doesnt Make Me Look Dry Or Oily. Its Just Perfect.

This is by far my favorite primer. Its lightweight, super soft on the face, minimizes pores, and works so well with my foundation. Worth the money.
I wanted to love...
Mads from NJ
I received a sample of this primer along with my purchase of the Hoola bronzer and after only one use, little red bumps and whiteheads formed on the exact places I used the product (thankfully I only used it on my T-zone). With that said, I wouldn't consider my skin sensitive and I have combination skin in the summer and dry skin in the winter. I really wanted to like this product because it seems like almost every influencer uses it, but in addition to it breaking me out, it also pilled when I put any makeup product on top of it. It's a shame because without it breaking me out and pilling, I was surprised it actually blurred my pores and made my skin quite soft. However, there are so many more cons to this product compared to only one benefit I'm receiving so I definitely won't be purchasing it in the future. I also really hope Benefit Cosmetics can pay more attention to their ingredients and becoming Cruelty-Free because most of their products break me out.
Jess from Washington
Love starting my day with this! Even when I don't wear a full face of makeup this makes my skin look so fresh. It's silky soft and doesn't get flaky when you rub it in.
chrisp from north texas
I received a sample of this as part of a promo, so it was a great way to try it out. My daily primer is BareMinerals PrimeTime. This is definitely not that. The sample size was so small and did not cover my little face, so I tried it on just my chin. It wasn't as smooth and softening as the PrimeTime. I'm glad I didn't pay for this.
Nicole from Wisconsin
I LOVE this primer. So lightweight and leaves my face feeling soft all day
Anay from Kyle, Tx
I don't think it's a bad product but I don't think it's a must have, it does have a nice smell and feel to it but I don't seem to notice a difference. I think it way work for those who maybe have a lot of pores perhaps? But if you have perfect skin I would skip this, no need to waste money on an unnecessary product.

My go to!
Hannah from Ga
It took me forever to find a primer that I really liked until i finally came across this & bought it. Needless to say, it's amazing & has a nice scent to it & covers my pores nicely.
nova from ?
one of the best primers I've used. My foundation looked so skin like(I only do light to medium coverage). My skin is on the dry side so I used this with a glowy foundation, the results were beautiful! My friend even noticed the difference through video call.
Not worth it
No no no from Sherwood
I didn't like it . It make my make up feel thicker . Would not buy again
Ambi from Texas
I'm convinced that this only makes your pores seem smaller because it is mattifying and removes shine that makes them noticeable. I wanted to love it but I tried it out and idk if it was just my skin type but the texture is kind of silicone-y & when I put it on my skin it would form little clumps. I returned it & never looked back
It's a cult favorite for a reason
Rachel from Chicago
I've used the travel size and that alone, has lasted me a good while. I've finally caved in and bought the full size and I know I won't have to get another one so soon! It works very well as a primer before your makeup to appear even more flawless and it's just as beautiful on your skin without makeup to enhance your features.
Reviewer from Williamsville
