Most Helpful Positive Review Frying Chicken on Forehead Gone!
I originally asked the rep for blotting papers throughout the day. I could see her checking herself out on my mirror-shiny forehead. After giving herself a once-over, she recommended I try this Porefessional. I was sold after she let me sample it. The texture of the small dab and how it molded into my forehead, immediately removing grease and the yucky feel of oil, had me astonished. I love this product and will not leave the house without it on anymore. Luckily, it has such staying power that I don't need to reapply for almost the entire day. If you suffer from you-can-fry-that-chicken-on-my-skin-grease disease like I do, I'll tell you that this is the cure!
Most Helpful Critical Review not a satisfied customer
i have acne prone skin (extremly oily) i liked the way it felt when i first put it on, but sure enough within an hour my skin was extremly oily. this product did not help control my oily shine at all! it contributed. i really didn't see a difference with my pores either. I have enlarged pores (especially around my nose... where i also have alot of oil and shine)and my pores didn't seem to have the apparence of disapearing or looking smaller. was disapointed with this product, especially for its price.

I tend to avoid pore-filling/silicone primers because I don't like how they sit on the skin, but this was a pleasant surprise. Sinks in better than others I've tried and doesn't feel overly dry. I still only use in the T-Zone because that's where I get oily and prefer a hydrating primer everywhere else. Mattifies well, lessens the appearance of pores but doesn't cover completely.

This is the best pore refiner ever! I have tried many different products from very high end to drugstore brands and I have yet to find a better primer. I always come back to this one!
Didn't care for this
Happy shopper from Orlando
Not the best primer nor did I like that it had skin color. The consistency is ok and not as smooth as other primers.
One of my favorites!
Digesa from Clinton Township, MI
I use it over foundation then lightly dust with IT Bye Bye Pores pressed finish powder.
Pat from California
So far, I have not found any cons with this product. It helps cover pores that become more noticeable as we age and makes the skin look smooth. It works better than any other product I have tried.
JAZ from Denver, CO
I had forgotten that I had a little left and tried it again because I have large pores on my nose. It made them totally disappear and lasted all day under my minimal foundation. I bought a new one ,and I only have to use very little on my nose and cheeks. To the reviewers who say it smears their foundation, you're using way too much foundation! With this product, foundation isn't even needed.
Love this product!
Ty from NJ
I've used quite a few primers and this one by far has FINALLY worked like it says! I have an extremely oily t-zone and i asked the ulta rep who recommended me this and it's been one of my holy grails now! It's pricey but so worth it!

Best face primer
Yumagrl from Yuma Arizona
After moisturizing I apply Porefessional then foundation. My foundation last longer and makes my makeup look flawless.
chrissy from ca
it's actually a good product when it comes to covering up my pores the only problem is it wipes off my foundation so i have to apply a lot of foundation especially around my nose area & at the end of the day it still comes off
I would purchase this primer
Shiny Penny from Arizona
This is a great product. I've never been much of a make-up person, but I received this as a gift from a friend, so I tried it out, and I'm glad I did. This primer is very light on the skin, and it doesn't feel like I am wearing anything at all after I put it on. My skin has a reddish tint that I don't really like, but this primer makes my skin tone look more even. Plus, my skin feels smoother when I wear it. I did not put any make-up over it. I think it works fine just by itself.
I loved this product would buy it again
Lilly from Turnersville NJ
It's very smooth and does its job covering up your pores before your make up.
Good for oily skin
Britt from Newport, RI
This primer is great for oily skin. Gives me more of a matte finish and provides some pore coverage. The price however seems ridiculous to me for the amount of product in the tube.
makes my pores disapear with or without makeup.
mel from Chattanooga, TN
Rub into areas with enlarged pores. Can be used to conceal some fine lines also.
love this product much but it's pricey for the amount
Jack from KY
I never wear foundation or anything but concealer so this is perfect for me. It's super soft and helps me so much with oily skin. I wear it every day just to help with oiliness and to give my skin that matte look. I only use a pea sized amount so when I ran out after only having it for about a month, I was bummed. It's too expensive to not be a completely filled tube, this isn't a chip bag!!! I love the product but am gritting my teeth as I place another order for some because I do not feel like I got what I should've!
Holy WOW I love this :)
Kenna from Allendale, MI
The only primer I use!
didnt work for me
gretta from pennsylvania
this did not do anything for my pores. i have large pores around my nose & i noticed no difference after using this product with make up or without make up, whereas other pore-shrinking primers noticeably shrink my pores & make my skin look smoother.
best at covering my pores
Ris from Wisconsin
I've tried several primers including fenty, Laura mercier and hourglass, and keep going back to this one as it's the best at covering my larger pores on my nose and cheeks. It works great on my oily skin.
Crissy from USA
I used to love this product and when I recently repurchased I wasn't a fan. It leaves me flakey especially by my eyebrow area. I haven't noticed a difference as to whether my makeup stays as well. I have oily skin and it seems like my makeup still breaks down by the end of the day
My top MUST-HAVE item
Ashley from MO
I have combination skin and I usually shop budget products but this is my #1 absolute must-have beauty item. It's a little pricey for the amount you receive but to me it's definitely worth it. I make sure I'm always stocked with it so I never run out. There's a very noticeable difference in my face and makeup when I use it vs when I don't. When I use it, my makeup lasts longer, is smoother, and doesn't get oily/shiny. My skin looks much more flawless when I use this primer. It's truly fantastic!
Not a fan
Tamz69 from Richmond, VA
I've never seen where a primer leaves a caked up and balled up residue when applying to the skin. I used it on top of my moisturizer and it caked up in little balls almost like dead skin peeling off. I've used this twice and just got the tube. Think I'm going to stick to Smashbox.
RB from Sacramento, Ca
I love this product. It is a great primer for every day use.
Gabby from Illinois
This Is My Fav Of All Time! I Am Not Comfortable If I Dont Have This Primer On My Face! Love It 😍 It Is Soft, Not Sticky At All, Doesnt Make Me Look Dry Or Oily. Its Just Perfect.

This is by far my favorite primer. Its lightweight, super soft on the face, minimizes pores, and works so well with my foundation. Worth the money.
