Comments about Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional Face Primer:

By itself, it's just okay. But when I use another primer first, then use this in areas I need it on top, it's a game changer. Hides my pores and helps my makeup stay on all day.

    Comments about Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional Face Primer:

    I purchased POREfessional Face Primer to even out my skin because my skin is not even due to pores on my cheeks. I didn't find the results I was looking for. I have used this product in the past but I could not remember the end result. I will try a couple more times and use different techniques. If I don't get a better result I will return this product and use something different.

    One of my favorite primers. I have been using this product for several years. It feels very light on the skin and fills in my pores.

            I have purchased this many times and find I must put it on before applying other make-up. When it begins to run out I cut the bottom of the tube to get every drop out.

                Comments about Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional Face Primer:

                Got it when it was on sale since I've been wanting to get it for a minute now but didn't pull the trigger cause of the price. I'm happy with it so far!! It totally smoothes out my face and preps it for the foundation or even just for the day (I have worn it out alone with no foundation on top). The effects are long lasting too, at least on my dry skin, keeps my makeup on lockdown even after a physically demanding shift of 9 or 10 hours. Definitely will rebuy after I'm through with it
