Most Helpful Positive Review I disagree with Hannah from Texas, every skin is different.
I TOTALLY disagree with Hannah from Texas. I find her bold statement to take product down, disturbing and unfair. EVERYONE has different skin issues and not one face will be like another's. Sorry you had a bad time with this product but I had a fabulous makeup day!! My foundation looked FLAWLESS and I used a drugstore foundation. For me, this product worked beautifully!!!!! Note: I have very dry, sensitive skin. Loved it!!!!
Most Helpful Critical Review Stick with the original Porefessional
I was super excited to try this cause I love the original porefessional. I loved the look of this cause it's supposed to brighten. It doesn't brighten at all! It leaves an incredibly weird pinky-grey cast on my face which made me look sick. And I feel like it's a lot thicker than the original too! Wanted to like it but sadly didn't!

I love this primer, even better than the original in my opinion. It doesn't ball up on you if you use a bit too much, it's feels soft, smooth and silky on your face, and it gives you a nice little pearl-like finish as it fills and covers problem spots before foundation and concealer. My go-to!
Michele from IL
received a sample and never looked back. Its a staple product for me now
I will buy this item again!
Lisa Momma Bear from Birmingham, AL
The Pearl primer is amazing! When I put it on it goes on so easy and it makes my skin makeup ready with a glow. I bought it to see if I would like it and I will definitely be buying the large one.
Love love love this!!
Rhonda from Kennells Mill, Pa
I absolutely love this primer. It helps your makeup last all day. It makes your face feel so soft and silky and helps your foundation cover those fine lines.
Not the coverage I was wanting
Michele from Illinois
I've used similar products prior to this one, and this wasn't anywhere near as good. I wanted a light coverage with a glow-y look, and this had no coverage at all.
Best primer ever!
Sarah from Loves park, IL
Smells good and makes my face look soo smooth!
I have been using this product for the past 3 years
Kelli from Garden City, KS
I have been using this product for the past three years!! I have tried other products and nothing works like this product. Well worth the money
Cindy from ID
I got this on the advice of a very helpful sales associate when shopping for wedding make-up. I don't wear makeup very often and got this to try. I really like it! It minimizes the appearance of my pores and fine lines, even the ones under my eyes. It wears great under makeup and matches my skin tone enough that I will actually wear it alone to cover those pores and even out my color. I do notice that I need to use frankincense in my lotion after taking it off or I will have small breakouts on my face the next day. Not sure why, but I worked out a fix, so it's fine. Tea tree oil or lavender oil would probably work, too.
I love this product
Nella from Milwaukee
It is so silky. I use it as my every day make up routine. No breakouts and my skin looks so smooth
My New Favorite Primer!
What.a.Beauty.Full.Life from FL
I have combination dry & oily, sensitive skin with areas of large pores. As with many other primers, if you don't wait to let the product dry down or if you apply too much, it can pull up as you rub your face or apply whatever is next in your brauty routines. I never buy products that tout moisturizing qualities or luminous finishes but I like the original so much that I decided to try the Pearl version. I have been so pleasantly surprised with the Benefit Porefessional Pearl primer! It gave my skin a NATURAL not-dry, not-dull fresh look! It does not make your face look noticeably glimmery like other products that I've tried in the past. I plan to keep this in my every-day rotation and it may permanently replace all of my other primers.
It Pilled on me :(
dandksmommy from Clovis, CA
I'm not sure why this pulled on me since I matched it with a silicone based foundation. I know that in order for primers to work you need to use silicone based primers with a silicone foundation and water based primers like Too Face with water based foundation. However, this product pilled on me with both types of foundation. I even let my face dry for 30 min before applying foundation and still no luck. I will go back to smashbox which is a great silicone primer and too face for water base.
Ree from Chicago
I use this as my pores are visible. I have otherwise great skin so I do not always need foundation or powder. This helps me be flawless without a bb cream. This formula is great for pale skin as the others are more nude or suntan and are obvious because I am so fair.
Using a trial size a the moment but I'm sold

Under my makeup
Not any different from the original for me
MareBear from Little Canada, MN
This is supposed to provide a softer finish than the original but I find it does the same. Both this & the original are in the high priced end but they do a good job at minimizing the appearance of my larger pores. I don't find any issues with the use.
JAG from Blue Bell PA
Whereas the smoothness that it leaves my skin, I feel that my foundation and blush don't blend well on top of it. I purchased this on recommendation of an employee as they were out of my usual Smashbox primer. I most likely won't repurchase, thankfully I only bought a small tube.
Ineffective, Oddly Pills
Lindle from North Carolina
I have normal skin, leaning dry. This primer oddly pills on my skin upon application, regardless of if I've moisturized or not. It even pills when I swatch it on the back of my hand. I get that it's supposed to have a velvety texture, but it's as though it folds over on itself. I cannot detect any pearlescense whatsoever, sadly. Tried 3-4 different foundations with it and didn't experience any more longevity or a better finished look than if I had not used the primer. Would not recommend.
Yess. Love it
Kim from Chesterfield VA
Brightens my face
I will Never ever use this again
Envious of people who can use this prime from Chicago
I am on a hunt for a new primer... I want a primer that gives me some radiance because my skin can be dull at times... I happen to see this primer and judging from all the good reviews.. I was like fine lets try this... BROKE ME OUT badddddd....
I love this primer
Bonita from Huntsville,AL
I'm not a fan of primers but I absolutely love this primer and will always use now every time. It goes on so smooth without being oily or caking up my foundation.
I can't say enough!
Teamplayer65 from McDonald, Ohio
I love the way this product works, the velvety texture and the scent. Instantly closes your pores. I'm sold!
Product speaks for itself!
Mimi from McDonald, Ohio
This product is amazing! Silky smooth, smells good plus you can actually see the difference before and after use. It closes up your pores making your face, feel, smell and look great. I would give it 6 stars if I could!
Yes, I would buy this product again.
Pam56 from Oxford, MS
I really like the POREfessional Pearl Primer. I like how this goes on and feels. I will wear this when I do not want to wear makeup.
Never need foundation Again!!!!
Sissy from Surfside Beach
I use this almost everyday... it makes me look like I have the smoothest skin. Almost like I've been airbrushes! Greatly recommend!
Melissa from Hixson, TN
I love this product! Soft, smooth & lasts all day.
My FAV Primer
MissJessJames from Tupelo, Mississippi
I typically use this under my makeup. The way it makes my skin look and feel is AMAZING! This product ABSOLUTELY minimizes the look of my large pores. If also INSTANTLY brightens/ my skinfone. I remember the first time I wore the product alone. I applied the primer and decided I'd apply foundation on my way to work because I was running behind. I got almost to work and realized I never applied my foundation. I panicked. I looked in the mirror and realized how beautiful my skin looked. My pores were smaller, my (severely uneven) skin was almost perfectly even and glowing, and it was the most beautiful my natural skin with no makeup had looked in years. I got compliments all night at work asking what skin care I was using. It blew my mind. I got curious so the next day I applied a tiny amount under makeup then a small amount (with a blending bud as not to rub) over my makeup. OMG, I loved it that way too!! I'm about to re-order and will continue to do so as long as Benefit makes this product. I seriously need to buy this stuff in a gallon jug because so many people ask what I'm wearing, and I like to share but not out of my small tube!😂😂
