This is a great go-to primer, great for every day and makes your makeup stay!

Most Helpful Criticism



It doesn't mattify my skin at all. It's just like any other drug-store primer with an expensive price tag.

    It doesn't mattify my skin at all. It's just like any other drug-store primer with an expensive price tag.
  2. Great


    This is a great go-to primer, great for every day and makes your makeup stay!
  3. your best friend in summer


    does an amazing job keeping the shine at bay and holding your make up in place during the summer. Its a must have in your make up case
  4. Great for oily skin!


    I love this for my oily skin! It is great for long wear makeup and a little goes a long way so this lasts quite some time!
  5. Not My Holy Grail


    I have a very oily T-Zone so thought I would give this a try. Goes on well and make up sits nicely over the top. I wouldn't say it is mattifying enough (for me) to keep my make up/face shine free all day. The search continues.
  6. good primer


    This really helps keep my t zone matte, but don't use it on dry patches because it will emphasis the dryness.
  7. Alright


    It's alright. Benefit primers don't work that well on my skin. I have dry to combination skin, this doesn't make the foundation last for that well.
  8. Great!


    great for travelling, a night out with friends, simple and very easy to use, very effortless and light to wear. great for those busy rush mornings also.
  9. Not the greatest


    I have a very oily T-zone and unfortunately, the original porefessional made me even more oily. I decided to give the matte version ago and it has helped slightly but not enough to be advertised as mattifying.. It does smell nice and is cooling when first applied though!
  10. Good mattifying moisturiser


    This is a good gel moisturiser which does effectively minimise oil and shine. I apply this on my oily T-zone before priming and it mattifies all areas of shine. I think it takes longer for any shininess to come through over the course of the day than it does if I am not wearing this underneath. It does not irritate my sensitive skin.
  11. Benefit Porefessional Matte Rescue


    Just use a small amount and it is able to cover most of my pores. The only downside is it is a bit dry and cause the skin around my nose area to peel.
  12. Makes a big difference


    Does a great job at holding my makeup in place for the day and keeps my face from getting too shiny. Much better as a primer than a moisturiser
  13. Does not keep oil at bay


    I bought this primer because I did not get great results with the original Porefessional. I have an oily t zone and thought this would be good for keeping oil at bay, however, the texture of the product was a bit too creamy for my liking and my t zone also got very oily after just an hour. Unfortunately, it did not work with my skin despite multiple attempts and it may be suited to more combo skin...

  14. Love


    BEST before foundation, every single foundation is usually REPELLED on my oily deep pored skin - absolutely love!
  15. Great shine control


    I find this controls shine very well and feels nice on the skin. I don't have super oily skin but reach for this on warmer days or when I know I'll be more active than usual. Make up goes on really nicely over the top and lasts really well.
  16. great buy


    I have oily combo skin and this works amazing on my T-zone. mattifies the oily part of my face and I don't have to touch up as much or at all. It doesn't affect my foundation lengthens the wear of it. a purchase I definitely don't regret!
  17. THANK YOU!


    Finally! Something that doesn’t need to be touched up every hour. A full day with hardly any oil/shine! A fantastic primer that instantly feels mattifying!
  18. Foundation sticks on my nose, finally!

    jacjorjac (Adore Beauty Staff)

    This was bought accidentally, I meant to get the porefessional original, however this is BEST at using on my nose before foundation, every single foundation is usually REPELLED on my nose, I don't have oily skin. This was a fantastic mistake
  19. Matte Poreless and longlasting!


    I tried this product in the hopes that it would keep my oils at bay, provide a smooth base for my foundation and improve my foundations longevity and it totally delivered!
    It smooths every bump out and give my foundation the perfect surface to stick to, I find it improves the longevity of my foundation by a few hours and ensures it doesn't wear patchy. My T zone stays oil free for so much lo...

  20. Makeup Saviour


    This product is my holy grail, I have oily skin and this makes my makeup stay on all day and helps keep my oils away. Also found that when using this my foundation doesn't move when i wear my glasses !
  21. Actually worth the price.


    I'm always sceptical with higher end products which cost so much for so little. Especially when there are so many good quality products that are very affordable, however this primer is definitely worth the price. A little goes a long way and it provides a fantastic base for your makeup, in fact I can wear this by itself to provide a matte finish all day long.
    I have also found it doesn't bl...

  22. Effective


    I have tried a lot of primers, but this one takes the cake! I have oily skin and large pores. This primer really does work and keeps my skin relatively decent for the day. I'm into my second tube. A little goes a long way, and this one tube lasts forever!
  23. A good primer but not a lot of pore-filling


    Porefessional certainly helps bind makeup to the oily spots on your skin, however I found this a hindrance as it resulted in patches of thicker makeup where i had applied the primer. Applying to the entire face obviously made it remain even-looking all day, however is certainly not cost-effective.

    In terms of the ability to hide pores, I found it actually did the opposite - making all...

  24. Best thing for oily skin


    I have oily skin and I have been looking for a long time for a primer that will actually help keep my make-up on. I only recently this product because of the reviews on this page and I've found that it definitely lives up to the hype. My make-up is staying on all day and it's matte & even. A tiny amount covers my whole face and leaves it feeling soft and smooth.
  25. Skin made matte


    This primer certainly works to make your skin matte however doesn't smooth the skin. It isn't a long wear product. I like wearing this without make up as it takes away any oiliness from moisturisers.
  26. Good product


    This hides my pores and makes makeup last longer. Doesn't irritate sensitive skin. I bought this is the mini size. I love how Benefit products are available in mini's. I only wear makeup 2-3 times per month so buying full size products seems a bit pointless.
  27. Great Product!


    I have very oily & acne prone skin, this stuff keeps my skin looking matte all day when applied underneath the pore perfection primer!

    I love benefit products!
  28. Nah


    As someone prone to blackheads, I'm all about trying to keep my pores clear of gunk rather than filling them with poly-filla (which is what this felt like). This is essentially a spackle for your pores full of propanediol, silica and silicones. There's no niacinamide or salicylic acid or anything that might help to keep your pores clear or control oil once you've filled them with this stuff.

  29. Vanished pores


    This is such a thick creamy and smooth primer. It completely blurs out all imperfections and pores and makeup applies so beautifully on top. I am obsessed
  30. Not the best mattifying primer


    I have oily combination skin where a lot of foundations separate in my t-zone. I didn't find this primer to be that mattifying. I still got just as oily throughout the day. It does make the skin feel nice and foundation go on nicely but didn't increase longevity for me
  31. Another hit from Benefit


    Another flawless product. Does what it says it will - blurs pores and leaves skin smooth and perfect blank canvas for foundation. Can even wear without foundation to leave an airbrushed finish. Admittedly I don't have huge pores - but works great for me.
  32. amazing


    great product, does what it says it does, highly recommend
  33. Pore pore go away


    Love this gem! I hate my pores but I'm stuck with them. This makes my pores go away and I love using it all over my face too.
  34. Amazing!


    I absolutely love this stuff! I have super oily skin and this keeps me matte all day!
  35. Amazing- love the gel formula


    I was introduced to this product by a make up artist and purchased it straight away and I haven’t looked back. it’s definitely a product that does what it claims to do and helps with coverage of pores and also combats oil.
    You only need a tiny bit. I have had mine for months now and have barely noticed anything gone out of the tube.
  36. Surprising


    I don't normally believe in or like 'matte' products, but a travel size of this is great for travel. I went to Bali and tropical north Queensland with this - both times is worked great in the humidity and was by best friend in not turning into a sloppy mess. Would recommend for this reason.
  37. the original is better


    to be honest i jumped on this primer when it came out and had so much hope for it. unfortunately it didn't work for me, despite its promise to cover pores. i have oily skin and large pores. i have used smashbox and hourglass primers before, but the original benefit primer still works best for me.
  38. 1 star less than real rating as benefit is not cruelty free :(


    A gimmick, don/'t purchase. Just go for the original porefessional. Matte rescue does not live up to its claim.
  39. Best primer for oily skin!


    I have very oily skin - I have tried various primers and nothing compares to this. By end of day my foundation still looks matte with no shine. Definitely recommend!
  40. Life changing for this oily girl!


    I have extremely oily, acne prone skin. I used to have to check how oily I looked throughout the day to blot and apply more powder. This product has changed all that! I'm still surprised when I look in the mirror hours after doing my makeup and it still looks good. Now I look fresh, sometimes a little dewy, but not oily. I highly recommend it! It has not caused any breakouts.
  41. Disappointed


    I have oily skin and have large pores around my nose and I was looking for a matte primer that would help my makeup last all day. Unfortunately it hasn't help my makeup from melting off my face during the day compared with not using a primer at all. It doesn't seem to help that much with the appearance of my pores either. On the plus side, the product does have a nice fragrance, feels nice and lig...

  43. Works great!


    I have very oily, sensitive skin, and I love this primer. Its texture is thick and creamy and it applies very smooth. My makeup applies beautifully when I use it, reducing the appearance of my pores and creating a blurred effect. Can't live without it.
  44. Smoother application and longer wear


    I find my foundation lasts longer and applies easier when I use this primer. Definitely recommend!
  45. I love this product!


    Using this before my primer and foundation has really helped my skin and makeup look flawless all day long! My skin is naturally oily and with using this product after my moisturiser, my make up has stayed on and keep my T zone under wraps! Thankyou!!
  46. LOVE


    I have oily skin and this keeps me matte all day
