”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.

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.

worth the price

I was initially vey skeptical to buy this because I thought it was all hype and it is not very cheap. I bought it and tried it— I loved it. This keeps my makeup in for so long. This makes my base look so good and long lasting. This also keeps my T zone matte.

Although this brand's line is pricey, it is worth it especially this product. I can even apply this without having the need to apply foundation and my skin would still look great. It really does cover pores without irritating your skin. POREfect if you really think about it. Again, it's pricey and really difficult to use daily all over the face if you want it to last long but for special days when you feel like looking perfect, this is it.

Worth the money 💸💸💸

This is pricey, yes. But this is one of the best primers I have ever used in my life as this is basically the only primer that fills in my pores and does not itch at the middle of the day. This does a great job in blurring my pores out and making it appear like a baby's skin. One of the best you can ever have, and definitely a must try.

so happy to find this

I thought i would regret this purchase because it was so expensive but im so glad I made the leap of faith! Im a cheerleader and i would always use this primer when I cheer in basketball games. After all the sweating, my makeup still stays intact!! I love how it feels when i apply it on my skin and the finish it gives under my base. Hell, on good skin days, i dont use foundation anymore as I just use this alone!
