The Porefessional primer definitely does what it says it does. It WILL disguise your pores. I have battled with large pores my whole life, so I've tried many things. This works very well, but I have found that it's best to use right after you exfoliate your skin. If you have visible flakes of skin on your face, it will accentuate them. I don't think this is as good as the ThatGal primer but it's very close. What I like to do is squeeze a dime sized amount on my fingers and rub them together (to somewhat heat it up) and apply lightly. Then, I get a small spray bottle I have of distilled water and lightly spritz my face. After this dries, I apply concealer, foundation, etc. The price is pretty steep, but if you want something to really fill up your pores this does work. I usually only wear this on special occasions, since it's kind of expensive. I also have found that when I wear this and take pictures of myself either in my home, or at a club, restaurant, etc. I always end up looking really flawless in the photos (although my skin is far from flawless). Good buy!

I'm really disappointed in **BeneFit The POREfessional**. When I first applied it to dry, clean skin, it seemed like it filled in all my pores and my skin immediately looked better. Unfortunately, once I applied my tinted moisturizer and powder over it, the benefits (no pun intended) were lost.

As the instructions say you can do, I've tried using this both under and over my make-up, and the results are the same - visible pores! I don't know why my skin goes from looking better with this product alone and then back to normal with make-up, but I'm disappointed.

Some things I do like about this product is the way it dries to a silky finish and the fact that it's petroleum and paraben-free.

It is okay. Other products out there for a better price

By 

from USA

Comments about Benefit the POREfessional:

This product is just okay for me. I'll use it if I have it, but I can live without it. I wouldn't purchase it.I have oily/combo sensitive skin. I generally go for primers opposite of this consistency. I feel like it makes my skin oilier than normal and doesn't last that long. The price on the product makes it worse because I think this is an overpriced product. For it being so expensive, I would think there would be more benefits to it than just blurring pores. There are so many products that have been put out that blur pores, but also moisturize and offer anti-aging benefits against fine lines and hyper pigmentation. This is a very hyped up product as everyone in the beauty community rave about it and how it is so amazing, but you honestly are not missing out by not having it. I received it for free and got the chance to try it out that way, but I am glad I didn't buy it for myself.

great product

Comments about Benefit the POREfessional:

if someone has dry skin this product is not for you. oher than that this product is good for oily skin or normal skin as well. i mainly apply this product in my tzone so i do not get oily throught the day. i see a little bit of difference in my pores especially in my nose area where i apply this product. a little goes a long way with this product so not much has to be applied. this product will last your for a long time since the tube has a lot of product.

Like it, but still hesitant to recommend

By 

from Santa Fe, NM

Comments about Benefit the POREfessional:

Benefit's POREfessional is a product that I have mixed feelings about. One of the best things about it is that it does provide a good base over which to apply makeup. Also, it smooths skin and blurs imperfections to the point that it could be worn alone and still give a more even, polished look than no makeup at all does. It feels good on my skin, has not caused any breakout issues, and does seem to make my makeup last a little bit longer. However, I have had to experiment with it a little bit in regards to the moisturizer I use under it and the foundation I use over it. If either is not just right, it can start to pill a lot, or cause my makeup to go on very patchy. I think that the pricepoint is a bit high on the POREfessional as well. A little does go a long way though, it actually works better and has less issues if you don't use too much, so that does help mitigate the price issue a bit. There are other similar primers out there, which are priced lower, but I have found that this one works better than the others I have tried.

The Nose Knows

By

Comments about Benefit the POREfessional:

I use this product for my nose before I put on my foundation. The pores on your noes are naturally bigger and it helps to make that less noticeable. I would not use this product though on any other part of my face as I think it would do any good. I would juts use it one areas where your pores are the biggest.

Fills in pores, but no long term effects...

By 

from USA

Comments about Benefit the POREfessional:

All this really does is fill in your pores. I don’t see any long term effects. It feels a tad greasy, so if you have acne prone skin I do not recommend to you. It’s an okay primer, although I don’t think I would repurchase.

One of my new beauty secrets.

Comments about Benefit the POREfessional:

Works wonderful as a primer. Leaves your skin silky smooth so foundation goes on beautifully. I did the test and applied a small amount to a lemon and the bumps literally disappeared on the half I tried it on.

benefit primer

By 

from Adelanto, CA

Comments about Benefit the POREfessional:

I recently bought this benefit primer because I was looking for a good primer and I really like benefit products so I decided to try it out. After trying I have to say that I like it. First off it is a bit high price, espeically for what you get, it comes in a small tube container and it isn't that big at all so you dont get to much. It is slightly colored, a soft tanish color which I kind of dont like, I would perfer it to be clear but I do like the way it feels, it feels so velvety soft and really airy and light. After putting it on it feels extremely light, like your not wearing it at all and it makes you skin feel very soft. It has a matt finish. It really does fill in your pores on your face which is what I love the most. something i dont like about it is that you kind of need alot of put it on your face, well it feels like that anyway so overall I like it, not sure if I would buy it again, maybe if it went onsale.

Works Like a Foundation

By 

from Minneapolis, MN

Comments about Benefit the POREfessional:

Ugh, I LOVE Benefit, and I couldn't get excited about this one. It was tinted too dark for my fair skin and although it may "hide" pores, it's because it's a concealing foundation. It was pretty heavy and would catch on my dry skin areas. Not my favorite Benefit product.
