    Not so much

    By Joshlyn

    from Nacogdoches, Tx

    Comments about Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional: Matte Rescue Invisible-Finish Mattifying Gel Mini:

    So I do like to compare products and see if they're really worth it. I tried this after using the Maybelline Baby Skin Pore Eraser and needless to say I finally finished this smaller bottle of the Porefessional and I ended up going back to Baby Skin. I thought the Baby Skin actually worked whereas this seemed to not make much of a difference in blurring my pores. Glad I didn't buy the full size! Save your money, Baby Skin is cheaper!

                • Q:

                  The instructions state to apply over freshly cleansed face. My face is oily and pores are large and the sales person suggested this product. Should I still apply my moisturizer (Cervae) and if so before I apply the porefessional or after or not at all?
