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

                I didn't have an overtly negative experience with this product, but It just didn't do anything. I gave it a shot and tried using it over and over again but it felt like I was putting nothing on my skin, and not in a good way. I like my primers to feel and behave like primers. I guess it mattifies, when you initially apply it, but by far is it an amazing primer. The benefit porefessional is a lot better than this one- it mattifies (a lot better than this one) AND blurs pores. I didn't find this to be great at controlling oil either.

                      not what i expected it to be. it by no means covers up pores.
                      it is for people with oily skin to absorb oil so not
                      right for me as i have normal skin, not oily
                      but not dry

                          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?
