Most Helpful Positive Review My best friend from now on love it
Everyday I put this on before my regular makeup, it is perfect and flawless I love it
Most Helpful Critical Review Hmm, will be returning!
I bought this to use along with the Benefit The POREFessional Agent Zero Shine powder and let me tell you, this stuff disappoints. Raved about by the two ULTA consultants working in that area of the store that day, this product did not work for me. I explained to them how I get oily by midday right at the sides of my nose and onto the cheeks, chin, and forehead and they swore this along with the powder would work. I'm here to tell you it DIDN'T and to make matters WORSE, I was becoming oily even BEFORE midday, after having applied my makeup around 5:15am daily. I sooooo wanted to like this product and was hoping it'd become my holy grail. Instead it'll be finding it's way back to the store to be returned for something else along with its non functional powder sidekick. TBNT!!

I mainly bought this product for my nose, no matter how much make up or concealer or even primer I use my foundation and powder never stayed ! I'm not lying, but then I bought this and OMG !!!! It's amazing even when using a mask my make up on my nose is still on. I'm so happy I was recommended this product.
Ehhhhh....doesn't work for me
Bri from Philadelphia PA
I have very very oily skin and this product say that it's a matte rescue but it really isn't. Does not keep your face matte at all. This was very disappointing I think I will stick to the smash box oil control stick.
Oily face? I don't know her!
Clr_74 from Wellington, FL
This product is fantastic! I haven't been wearing a lot of makeup, other than eyes, because I wear a mask all day. However, I've noticed that my oil secretion has increased, due to the mask. I decided to try this & am ao glad that I did. It smoothed on nicely & immediately soften & blurred my pores. Later in the day, I had some oils in my T zone but no where what I would normally get. I can't wait to try this under foundation.
ahhhmazing oil control!
Nurse Mare from Cincinnati
I previously used the regular porefessional but the associate at Ulta hyped this up and I am so glad she did. I have never had something control my oily nose all day long as good as this does. I am impressed!
HAVE TO KEEP STOCKED
Facecard from Centerline, MI
This product is so amazing!! I apply this about 5mins before I lay my foundation over it to let it get acclimated with my skin and do its job properly and it does it very well!! I don't write reviews but for this I had to!! I have super oily skin and this keeps my oils away throughout the day and holds my foundation in place. Haven't had a primer perform the way this one does for my skin. It makes my skin look even and smooth for my makeup application and I have problem skin! Definitely recommend this to those with my same skin type.
Doesn't stay matte long
Jay from Nc
Covers and helps with pores. Didnt stay matte long
Oil control at it's best!
Linds from Sacramento
I have naturally oily skin and by the end of the day I'm usually looking pretty shiny. I noticed a considerable difference after just my first use of this primer. I didn't have to blot my face or reapply powder all day!!
Purchasing the full size of what is now an essential part of my makeup routine!
did not work on my oily skin
SC from Dallas TX
I have oily acne prone skin.
I have tried this product alone, i have tried this product with makeup, and i have done my makeup without it, and my face was the same. So i would pass if you have EXTREMELY oily skin and if you need something to handle 8 plus hours of wear.
(i will say that it did a good job for about 3- hours)
On a side note, this did not break me out or interact negatively with my proactiv- which is why i gave it three starts.
Kay from Wisconsin
Multiple ulta consultants recommended porefessional. I personally wasn't impressed. It does reduce some shine, but doesnt control my oil. I feel it breaks me out as well. Will not be repurchasing.
Christine from Dallas tx
This primer is amazing for normal to oily skin! Normal mattifying primers make my skin look caked and nasty. This gives the perfect sticky base to hold your foundation ALL DAY! I will be keeping this as my new go to primer 🙌🏻
Work Well, But Breakouts No!
sagangspann from Georgia
I had very high hopes for the product because I have EXTREMELY oily skin and even with powder and setting spray, I still get very shiny. After using it for a few days, I did notice my T-Zone shine didn't come back as quickly as usual, but I had a ton of little pimples all where I applied this product! I decided to give it a rest and my breakouts started going away. I'm gonna give it another try, but beware if you have breakout prone skin! I don't know if i'm sensitive to a specific ingredient, or if this product wasn't formulated for my skin, but be cautious if you have acne prone skin!
Can't believe how mattifying this gel is!
Miyuki from Utah
I decided to try this out, and couldn't believe how mattifying it was! The oil from my face disappeared completely and stayed away far longer than with any other product.
I haven't found better!
Casey from Biloxi, Ms
I have unbelievably oily skin. Just two or three hours and I'm already blotting, wash my hair twice a day type of oily. Living on the coast in humid weather year round type of oily. With dry patches. This last upwards of 9-10 hours without needing to blot once, it stayed well under my foundation which I think made it last longer, and it did not cling to a single dry patch. I bought the trial size to see if I'd like it before committing to a larger bottle, but I will definitely rebuy this product. The consistency isn't really "powdery" compared to the other porefessional products, it's a clear gel that dries matte.
I would buy this product again.

I like this makeup primer...it does help keep makeup in place...it does not hide all the imperfections of my pores.
Vanessa from Fremont, CA
Loving this gel primer, it was a perfect start to my routine!

Took care of my "shining" glow.

Used this product under my tinted moisturizer and it took care of the shiny glow.
This is Magic!
Leza from Lake Stevens, WA
Love this product. It hides all of my pores and preps it for my base. It makes it so smooth looking.
Not long lasting
bri from new york, ny
Love that this product doe what is says instantly. However by the end of the day/mid day, my skin is back to being oily. would love if this lasted longer.
Sarah from Fontana
This product is really good for oily skin
Really helps my makeup stay on!!
Deanna from NC
I love the way it feels and it helps my makeup stay on better
McKenzie from Gulfport, MS
I can't wait to introduce to my daughter in Florida
Lala from Delaware
I really like this primer! I have super oily skin so I find that the gel doesn't leave my face feeling heavy after applying like some cream primers I've used in the past have.
Go To Primer For All Day Coverage
JZ from OH
This is the only matte primer I've tried that doesn't feel greasy, and keeps coverage all day. Combined with a matte powder I've had it last through a day walking around in 90 degree weather in the full sun. Even wearing it with a hat when I'm exercising, as soon as the sweat dries I'm back to feeling freshly powdered. It's incredible, and I wish I'd known about it years earlier.
I liked this product
Shoe girl from Jonesboro Ar
I liked this product. Not sure if I will buy it again or try something new.
