”Love that it’s: “Only a small bit needed””
”I had oily skin (particularly on my forehead) for so long and didn’t know how to treat it. I tried this primer and from the first use, my skin wasn’t oily at all. Only use a small bit and it lasts from 7am to 7pm easily. I will be buying in bulk!”
–ANNIEJ (from benefitcosmetics.com/US)

WHAT YOU GET: (1) The Porefessional Face Primer

Prime in the A.M. Apply a thin layer of this PRO balm to clean, lightly moisturized skin. Using fingertips, pat lightly from the center of the face moving outward. Apply makeup as usual. Reapply whenever pores come out of hiding. Pat delicately over makeup and blend.


Founded by successful models-turned-makeup artists Jean and Jane Ford, Benefit was built on the premise that “makeup doesn’t have to be serious to look good.” For the twin Fords, laughter was always the best cosmetic, a belief they infused into each of their products from the get-go. Just check out the quirky packaging and cheeky labels that accompany Benefit’s beauty boosters and you’ll get the drift! Today, the mega-brand is known for its insta-pretty solutions and ever-playful approach to beauty.

Fave for everyday and big events

I super love this primer! I've used it on big events I've been to and I've also used this on a daily makeup routine. I love it because it doesn't leave my skin dry but it gives it a matte texture. My skin feels soft and just ready for the next layer of makeup product. You can use this even if you dont want to wear foundation over it and it will still look good. It is a bit pricery but a little goes a long way with this product.

Fresh smooth matte but not flat

I think i can see why they are raving about this product. I have this in full size and in mini for traveling and everyday touch ups. A little goes a long way so you this expensive stuff will last you long so i guess its still a steal - sulit! I love how its lightweight. It blurs out my large pores and smoothens out my skin so my foundation and bb cream applies perfectly. It also keeps my oily skin at bay and keeps my skin fresh even if i use it alone. I like how it does not dry out and super mattifies my skin so the natural shine and glow stills peaks through without the oiliness.

Great for oily skin!

The Porefessional really fills in your pores and helps with makeup application! It really helps makeup stay on your skin for a really long time. It mattifies really well! However, I wouldn't use it when I had dry patches, because my skin would end up really flaky and the application would be super thick.

Not worth your money and Not recommended for dry skin

This primer did nothing for my skin and caused it to lose pallor. It may have filled my pores, but it made my skin awfully dry and caused my foundation to flake throughout the day. This was a waste of my money. As someone with combination skin, the Laura Mercier radiance primer worked way better and left my skin looking natural and glowy.

A fan since 2013

I have been using this since 2013 and I haven’t found any other product that does what it does. It just magically diminishes my pores and makes my face look soft and supple. This can be used under makeup or over makeup; but, honestly I use this alone most of the time! It is that good. :)

Won't Take You Pore-granted

Ever doubted whether or not you should get Benefit's Porefessional Face Primer? Well when you go to a benefit store and you see this product, you should try it out yourself because with just one stroke of this on your face, ESPECIALLY on your nose, you can already see this great product do its magic. It really minimizes the pores on your face unlike other products, which cover the pores but make it look like you've got little white stuff sticking out. It does the trick so well and it looks so natural. Definitely would recommend.
