”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.

Best primer indeed!

I know Benefit is quite pricey so I was very happy to have a tester of this primer as a freebie. And it was soooo amazing! It’s so smooth on my skin and it’s not sticky. I didn’t fear that my face would cake, or that I would have a breakout. My skin felt supple and moisturized, and it indeed lessened the appearance of my pores. It felt like applying clouds on my face because it was so soft and easy to apply. I’d save up for this one for sure! Got a lot of events this December!

Best primer ever!!!!!

Aaaahhhh. I bought the work kit from Benefit first so I could try four of their products. Luckily, porefessional is included in the kit so I got to try it! I fell in love the first time i used it. 1) It really mattifies my super oily face. 2) It minimizes the appearance of my pores. 3) It makes my makeup lasts longer! It's pricey but it's worth it! Buying this again!

Instantly 'hides' your pores

This is a great primer and I believe that Benefit is the first company to come up with a pore minimizer. This works instantly and is a perfect makeup base for any makeup brand. The downside though is that it doesn't actually shrink pores but fills them with the product to create a smooth finish. At the end of the day, the pores are still big.

Great primer

This primer was given to me as a gift from a friend. I love how it makes my skin velvety smooth after application. It keeps my make-up in place and makes it last throughout the day. It's just on the pricey side for me, but the tube lasts a long time so it's worth it.

The first time I tried out this product it was given as a gift. I received the mini version of this primer. It was very effective, it worked well in covering my pores and fine lines as well as in controlling the oil on my face. The mini version also lasted me a long time but I decided to buy the bigger version because I use it a lot.

Holy Grail Primer

I absolutely love Benefit’s porefessional primer. Although it’s a bit pricey, it still works wonders. It blurs my pores and keeps oil at bay. I also use it on its own during lazy days. I’ve tried numerous primers but this one is still my fave. I really see the difference whenever I use it.
