Most Helpful Positive

a must have


A small amount of this glides easily onto the skin and makes it fell super smooth, my foundation sets nicely and lasts much longer.

Most Helpful Criticism

It does smooth


Definitely blurs and softens pores, but I can’t get past the smell. It is over powering and lingers.
  1. a must have

  2. One of my favs


    Smoothes my pores like nothing else and makes the makeup stay so we'll!

  4. Amazing


    Super impressed with this. I'm not usually a primer wearer but this is incredible. Does what it says it will; pores minimised, smooth as skin and still manages to look somewhat natural if going for the minimal makeup look.
  5. Not satisfied


    I saw that Sofia Richie uses this so I thought I would give it try! However, I have oily skin so not the best one for me. Felt like my make up stayed on better without this primer. I will need to try a matte one in the future!
  6. Actually primes


    Creates a literal barrier between skin and makeup, and so silky smooth. Just make sure you warm the product between your fingers before application on face
  7. Good primer


    Purchased the mini size as I wanted to test before purchasing the larger size. Nice primer that works well for minimising my pores. Saw a few reviews about this not working under other products, however i have no issues with this. My only negative is the price, for such a small amount of product the price is a bit steep.
  8. Don't understand the hype


    I don't really understand the hype to be honest. This primer feels quite greasy on my skin and didn't do anything amazing to make me think it's worth the price. It's not too bad but didn't give me the magical results that I was expecting based on other reviews. There are plenty of other primers that I prefer and probably wouldn't repurchase this
  9. Not impressed


    I bought this after seeing the rave reviews about this, I finally caved and bought myself one. I have enlarged pores and based on reviews and recommendations I thought this would help smooth out their appearance.
    Upon application it does seem to do this, however, once makeup is applied, this primer flakes off. It doesn't stay on the skin and therefore doesn't work for me! I really wanted this to work but unfortunately it didn't so I won't be repurchasing.
  10. Unsure


    This product is so soft and you can definitely see the blurring effects but it does not work well with many other products on top- I've found that with this underneath sometimes my makeup starts 'balling' off or clumping when trying to blend
  11. Love it

    Regina Fuentes

    Love this primer. Really protect foundation from going into my pores
  12. No brainer


    If you have large pores then this is for you! Even if you just wanna smooth out uneven texture on your skin from old acne scarring then this is also for you! It’s a no brainer this primer is the bomb! Even better than the Napoleon perdis one that I used to use (which was great) you don’t even have to use it as a primer I’ve used it on makeup free days to smooth out my skin and remove shine.
  13. Not a fan


    Unfortunately I'm not a massive fan of this primer. I thought it would be better since reading so many good reviews.. maybe it's just not the best for my skin type. So glad I got the mini one! Won't be buying again
  14. Great primer


    Love this primer, blurs your pores and makes your skin look smooth!
  15. Really good


    This was really good, I didn't feel heavy or feel like it blocked my pores during the day. It did what it said and it was kind of like a filter on the face. I will be purchasing the bigger one :)
  16. Blurs my pores


    This primer is my holy grail. It fills up my pores so that it creates a smooth base for foundation. I love having a mini size for travel.
  17. Great primer!


    Very light primer on my oily combination skin. I feel like it does what it is meant to and minimise pores. I would use this product again.
  18. Not my favourite pore minimising product


    I have very enlarged pores on my cheeks and have tried a lot of different pore minimising makeup. I like porefessional if I wear it alone but I find when I use it with foundation (either before or after) it doesn’t blend well. I think there are better (and less expensive) options out there so I wouldn’t purchase this product again
  19. Slightly fills in pores but not the best primer for oil control


    I bought this because the sales rep suggested it would be beneficial for my combo skin. I get very oily on my t-zone and nose area and since using this, I cannot say that this issue has improved. it goes on very smooth and has a silicon texture which results in a smooth and good base for foundation. However, I find that it does not work well as a primer as I get oily within 30 mins of application and cannot see any lasting effects of it in smoothing my pores. I feel that there are much better and more affordable options for pore refining/priming products.
  20. Good primer


    This is good to use with other primers. I usually use a brightening primer then the POREfessional primer then my foundation to give me a good base so my makeup lasts all day.
  21. Smooths your skin


    It vanishes my pores in a split second..worth buying..a bit pricey but does its job..hide all imprection of combination skin.
  22. The must have


    One of the only primers I consistently use. I can definitely notice my pores become less noticeable when I use this primer and it helps to keep my oily skin matte all day.
  23. A staple


    Although this primer isn’t perfect, it definitely does the job! It blurs my pores so beautifully but because it has a silicone base, you have to make sure to pair it with the right foundation for seamless results.
  24. A staple


    There's a reason everyone knows this primer. I will say, it isn't the greatest for a super liquidy foundation but it's really good under a thicker textured one.
  25. Awesome


    forever my favorite fills in my pores well before applying foundation and that givves a beautiful finish, highly recommend
  26. My fav Primer


    This is always in my makeup bag. Smooth to apply and sits in my skin well. I don't need foundation on if I wear this primer. Nice mattify look. Can go a bit oily by the end of the day if you touch your face.
  27. Smells lovely and minimises pores!


    This definitely minimises pores and creates a smooth canvas for your makeup. The smell is almost like green tea which is quite pleasant. I find it doesn't control oils so you will need something else for that - I'd suggest Benefit Matte Rescue and this lightly over the top. Make sure you don't use this on any dry patches as I find it really emphasises them!
  28. Holy grail


    Certainly a staple in my makeup bag and will continue to be! Love that it blurs out my pores and gives a smooth base for my foundation.
  29. so good!


    One of the only primers I consistently use. I can definitely notice my pores become less noticeable when I use this primer and it helps to keep my oily skin matte all day.
  30. Favourite primer!


    I love this primer & have been using it for several years now.
    I am over 40 with pretty good skin that is combo.
    A little of the primer goes a long way!
    I press & dab a small amount into areas of roughness, enlarged pores & wrinkles & it is like a perfecting putty for the skin! Letting it set for at least 5 mins is key!
    It is mat in finish which I like & I have never had a problem with any foundation I use over the top.
    It can pill on top of some moisturisers that are high in hylaronic acid if not careful but give it a try! This tube lasts for ages too.
  31. Large pores who?


    This primer literally fills in all of my pores and leaves my skin looking and feeling so smooth ready for makeup! This is a must have primer especially for those with oily skin.
  32. Great at hiding those pores especially on the cheeks


    At first I was skeptical due to never paying that price for a primer but I was shocked when I tried this!
    This product fills in pores great and makeup glides over the top very easily! I have tried this primer under so many foundations and it works with them all. Also a small amount goes a very long way which means it lasts ages!
    The only reason I have given it 4 stars is that I find that it does tend to make my skin get oily earlier on during the day compared to other pore filling primers I have tried.
  33. Literally hides your pores


    Favourite primer! It hides pores and leaves a velvet feeling over your face. Keeps make up looking great all day
  34. Great primer


    I’ve tried many primers and I received this as a sample and fell in love! Make up glides on and makes skin look so smooth
  35. Make up glides on


    Great primer!!! Not heavy at all, after applying my skin feels like velvet & so evenly textured, my make up glides on.
  36. Lovely texture and good value for money


    I really loved the feel of this primer when it was on and think make up applies really nicely over the top. The tube lasted me a long time as a little went a long way so I think its good value for money. I'm not sure it added any extra staying power to makeup but I often feel that way about most primers
  37. Fabulous primer


    Absolutely love this primer - not heavy on the skin and makes my make up go on really smoothly
  38. My favourite primer!


    This is my absolute favourite primer. I have tried a fair few over the years, but this has been my firm go-to for the last couple of years. It is expensive for the amount you get, but a little goes a long way.
  39. It's all in the name


    I love this primer! Not only does it glide on smoothly but it's doesn't go all clumpy and gross when I'm in a rush and have to put it over wet moisturizer. Foundation is a dream to brush on after using it. I also have large pores on my forehead and it fills them in without my face breaking out.
  40. Hides pores, stays matt - awesome


    I’ve tried other primers, as this one is pricey, but haven’t found anything as effective, I have oily T zone and enlarged pores particularly on my nose. I only use the primer on these areas and it hides the pores beautifully and stays matt. Awesome product.
  41. I tried a sample and...


    I got this as a sample and have not used it before, thought I'd give it a try. I usually use Too Faced Hangover primer because I am sometimes prone to dry skin and it's very hydrating. One one hand, yes it definitely reduced my pores - big winner in that department However it was a little drying. Also, cost wise - The Hangover primer is actually cheaper for the amount of product you get. I do think I will purchase this though because I'm going to break all the rules and use this on the areas of my face that tend to have my pores show and use the Hangover on the rest...total anarchist I am! And may I just say that I am a huge fan of Adore Beauty (really big fan) and I think you guys are very clever sending me all these amazing samples - I buy so many things that started off as samples, hahaha...plus you can't beat a Tim Tam with every order... :)
  42. Great Product


    This was on an acne safe list that my beautician gave me because it won't clog your pores and is safe to use if you are prone to breakouts. It's a GREAT product and I use it under my Youngblood mineral loose powder foundation and it makes it last alot longer during the day! I just wish the contents was bigger for what you pay for it :)
  43. Great Product


    I purchased this product after it appeared on a list of acne safe products that my Beautician gave me. It's great because it is safe on skin that is prone to breakout and doesn't clog your pores.
    I use it under my mineral loose powder foundation and it lasts longer during the day.
    I just wish the bottle was a bit bigger for what you pay for it!
  44. Good Product


    Love to use this just where my pores are enlarged (cheeks and nose) does a good job at smoothing it out.
    personally, prefer to use a thinner primer that is a bit more radiant for the rest of my face but this could be used for the full face.
  45. One of the best.


    I used to use this everyday I wore makeup and wouldn’t turn to anything else! So incredible! Leaves your makeup looking so smooth and flawless, without clogging the pores AT ALL! Definitely recommend if you can get your hands on it!
  46. smooth canvas, can be troublesome with various products


    Fills pores effectively leaving a smooth canvas for makeup application. My only concern is that this product can cause balling when used with some foundations and has a scent which may cause irritation for sensitive skin...
  47. Smooths the skin


    Great to smooth the skin, creates a flawless look.
  48. Didn’t work for me


    I have oily skin with large pores and was really excited to try this product. I waited for it to dry but it still balled up and made my makeup really patchy. Didn’t make s difference with my pores either.
  49. Great primer


    I’ve tried many primers but porefessional id have to say is the best. It makes your skin so smooth and you can see a difference once applied it definitely blurs the pores, I have normal to dry skin but it’s a god send. I use Estée Lauder double wear foundation which works amazing with the porefessional primer so easy to apply the foundation with the primer which is great as the foundation usually has to be worked with quite fast as it dries very quickly. Its a must have in your makeup bag
  50. Great for a smooth look


    I don't wear foundation very often, but this was the perfect primer when I did. I only needed a small amount so the little tube lasted me a little while. Made my skin look so smooth and covered my pores perfectly. I occasionally wore this on it's own and it looked great.
  51. Must-have for large pores


    This was recommended to me by a client (I'm a professional makeup artist) who kindly let me use some on her skin. It made such a big difference that I've bought this and the mini pearl one for my kit straight away. This is a game changer for blocking makeup from settling into your pores! One star taken off for price.
  52. Oily


    I used to love using this under my makeup as a primer as it did cover my pores, but I felt that my face got too shiny and oily afterwards.


    Absolutely love this primer. Hides pores and leaves my skin looking amazing and feels fantastic.
  54. Does what it says


    This primer does exactly as it claims to. It fills my pores in and gives me a nice canvas to work with when I'm putting on my foundation and doing the rest of my makeup. A bit pricey but personally it's worth it for me.
  55. Great on the T-zone


    I have very oily skin so this primer isn't really suited to my whole face, but I have enlarged pores on my nose and T-zone so I just really work that into those areas and it fills in my pores amazingly. I would encourage those whom use this product be careful not to use too much as it can roll up under your foundation and flake off.
  56. Best primer


    I have combination skin & very large pores. I’ve tried several primers because my foundation would Make my large pores more visible & I have acne craters too which show but this is the only primer I’ve found that works, it’s doesnt make the pores disappear but reduces them so it looks better & my make up now sits smoothly on top. It is quite expensive though.
  57. Love it!!


    This is the first product I've used that has actually worked on my very dry/sometimes also oily skin. Worked well with liquid or powder foundation.
    It feels amazing, I have already recommended it to my friends, will definitely buy again.
  58. Quick & easy light matte cover but...


    I’m careful to use it as little as possible- I think it blocks pores. I have sensitive uneven skin tone, and looks really good alone, especially across t-zone - no shine for hours.

    I would not say it hides pores - maybe if you layered it with tonnes of makeup it might - but it blurs them more than most products I’ve tried.

    It has typical soft silicate texture and feels good on. A little goes a long way.
  59. Best primer


    Love this used as a primer or even after makeup for a better result
  60. SOMETIMES its good


    This product works off and on for me, sometimes my pores looks great and sometimes it doesn't. Make sure that you pat it into your pores rather than smearing as smearing it makes the foundation not sit well and look separated/dry. I'm on my second bottle now. My first bottle was completed as I had oily skin but now that my skin is try im using it more sparingly as this product is also quite dry
  61. Baby soft skin


    Anywhere on your skin you apply this product it is instantly smoothed and soft! Bye bye pores
  62. Silky and smooth


    I love this primer! It glides on so easily and you dont need alot to spread all over!
  63. Love


    Beautiful texture and smell. Only a bit goes a long way. My makeup lasts a lot longer with this on and my skin is less shiny. I would definitely recommend. and buy again.
  64. Pore Blurring


    I was quite surprised when seeing this in person for the first time since I had expected it to be a bit bigger. But after having used it I realised a little goes a long way with this product. The pore blurring effect of this product is also quite amazing and although my pores aren't drastically large, there is a noticeable difference when I use this.
  65. Works really good


    Fills my pores and my foundation looks fantastic afterwards.
  66. It works! But my pores don't love me for it.


    While i like this product, it does work and keeps my pores from showing it has it down sides. After use it does tend to clog my pores for the following few days therefore i just use of the really problem areas and only for special occasions.
  67. Great product!


    I got it nearly one years ago and I just love this product.
    It’s best to use summer time for keeping dry on my oily skin.
    It just use a small amount so worth it for money.
  68. Go to pore filler!


    A must have for my professional and personal kit - amazing to fill in pores leaving a flawless base to apply makeup. Literally FLAWLESS!
    Like a real life blur tool haha!
  69. Best primer


    I have combination skin and this product fit perfectly for my needs, doesn’t dry my area of dry skin and keep it moisturized and reduces the oil production on my T zone. My pores are not that noticeable and has an amazing touch and smell
  70. Good but overhyped and overpriced


    I have Sensitive skin - leaves fab texture and matte finish, improves pores a little.
    I think it’s the silicone. I know I have it on... all day, not in a good way. Possibly not non comogenic.
    Tried many silicate primers with same devine texture - there are plenty that are less expensive.
    Might be better for different skin types.
    Used selectively in t-zone it helps, but I’m not sure what all the fuss is about. Not a keeper for me.
  71. Amazing for oily skin


    Great primer it really does fill in the pores and my concealer goes on like a dream. I wish their was more product, either im using too much or I have a big face lol. Product is amazing recommend.
  72. Staple primer


    I always have this in my collection it works so well. It smooths and disguises larger pores and problem areas. My skin for reference is rather dry, it tends to get a little oiler around my nose. I've used this for years now and will continue to repurchase.
  73. Doesn’t cause break out


    I have sensitive skin and this one doesn’t cause any breakouts..smoothen out the surface and foundation seems like smooth finish with it..also it makes my make up last for little longer..it doesn’t control any shine for me ..it still shows little shine at t zone area for me
  74. Fantastic primer!


    Great primer, smooths out pores, keeps the makeup looking fresh and matte, lasts ages. I use it on all skin types under the foundation (after moisturiser) and its beautiful. Definitely recommended
  75. Love!


    Smooths my pores making my skin feel fabulous. My make up glides on so beautifully after POREfessional. I've tried quite a few primers but nothing has worked as well on enlarged pores as this. I wish the tube was bigger but it won't impact me buying again. Best primer I've ever used.


    Soooo silky smooth and a little LITERALLY goes a long way !!! Made my skin look soooo flawless ! Decided to stop wearing foundation because it make my skin PORELESS, SMOOTH & CLEARER/BRIGHTER !!


    I love this product! makes my skin feel so smooth, making makeup application amazing!
  78. A MUST


    ive been using this for years now and hasnt done me wrong once! I use it to give my skin a smooth base before i put anything on top.
  79. Great Primer

    Jessica h

    This primer is great to make the appearance of your pores disappear, I absolutely hate mine & this works a treat! My skin is very oily as well & this helps a lot with that.
  80. Love it for lasting smooth foundation


    I absolutely love this product as a primer, over moisturizer and under foundation for a matte long lasting base for the day. I also use the porefection agent zero shine powder as a setting powder. Absolutely brilliant a must have.
  81. The POREfessional


    Love this product, use it everyday and it lasts ages!
  82. A must have


    I use this on my t-zone daily under makeup. It keeps me looking pore free and less shiny than I usually would be without it. A little goes a long way so lasts for ages. Have not used anything as effective on pores.
  83. Actually does what it says


    This is a fantastic product. I have oily/dry/sensitive skin with noticeable pores and this product works so well. It fills in all the pores but hasn't made my skin congested. I like to wear it alone without foundation for the "no make-up" look. It works really well under foundation as well. I was sent this product as a sample and will definitely be purchasing once it runs out
  84. excellent product


    excellent product by benefit- highly recommend- makes applying makeup an even better experience!
  85. Pore-amazing!


    Benefit have done it again! Porefessional is a must for every woman; it has a soft-feeling primer-based texture & provides great coverage of nasty pores! Porefessional is a dream in a tube!
    Highly recommend to all as it gives your skin an even finish & your foundation glides on so nicely over the top.

    A little expensive for what you get, but happy to pay for it as I think it's top quality!
  86. Porcelain skin is a real thing!


    I never really believed in primers making a real difference until I tried Porefessional. I had heard plenty of amazing reviews and it was always recommended by my friends but I stayed sceptical. I had received a sample and gave it a shot and was amazed by the results!

    Porefessional smelt sooo good it almost didn't make it to my face because I would have eaten it if I could. After smoothing it over my face and concentrating on my T-zone, I found that my foundation glided on satin smooth. I wore it out for an entire night out on town and found that I didn't have to touch up my foundation didn't fade at all and just a light dusting of translucent powder was needed my for T-zone.

    After that, I bought a whole bottle for myself and kept the other half of my sampler for a friend to try -- and now she loves it too! It is now an essential for my special occasions or when I want to glam up, as it's a bit too expensive for my everyday use. The great thing about it is that a little goes a longggg way!
  87. It's okay


    You have to be careful with what products you use with this as it can separate on your face. Filled in pores okay, but not as much as I would hope. I can't apply it over my foundation as it sticks and is visible. Didn't find it helped at all with controlling oil or anything. Could only apply it on my nose as it my chin is sensitive to break out. It is very silky and the colour blends out to be invisible.
  88. Amazing product


    Received this product as a sample recently. It's truly amazing! I've tried all sorts of products over the years...I'm 53 and wear makeup almost everyday. One of my favs has been Clarins smooth as a primer... but this is even better! Actually I'm currently using both. My moisturiser ,then POREfessional first and then Clarins smooth over the top followed by my foundation. No BOTOX required! I'll be adding this product to my "ESSENTIAL" list from now on!
  89. L-L-Love it! A must have product!

    Little M

    Benefit Porefessional is amazing! I have very obvious pores and this product glides on so smoothly it leaves me with an almost perfect complexion - and that is saying something! I am in love! This product is the perfect base for full makeup, or you can even use it on its own for a 'natural but flawless' look. I just cannot get over how smooth it made my face look! And it did not clog my pores or irritate my skin either. I will never be without this product from now on!
  90. Great Investment


    I'm so glad I grabbed Benefit's Porefessional when I could. I debated for ages because of the price, which I thought was very expensive...but after having the product for over 12 months and still having probably 1/2 a tube left, I realised it was a great investment. Thing is...you only need to use a little for each application. It spreads on my face so easily.
    I am 43 with mature and very dry skin, so I really need to make sure my face is super-moisturised before applying makeup, otherwise it looks cakey and gross. I apply this as a primer, so after my moisturiser and before my foundation. As I said, it glides on my skin beautifully, and helps diminish the visibility of my pores (which are large).
    Benefit's Porefessional works great as a primer as it covers some flaws while still looking natural and being hydrating.
    This is a must in my beauty bag!
  91. Amazing!


    Words cannot even begin to describe just how much I adore The Porefessional. I usually use it alone, without make up. I dab a bit on my t zone for porcelain looking skin. Yes it is expensive, but you only need to use the tiniest amount, and the tube will last for ages. It feels so lovely on my skin. This is a must have for me.
  92. Worth the price


    Makes a huge difference to the visibility of pores
  93. Clever! Porefection


    I received porefessional as a sample and loved it! It is not something I would normally try so I am glad I received the sample. Nice work Adore Beauty ;)

    A little goes a long way and my skin was instantly soft, smooth and matte. There was an immediate improvement in the look of my skin, it looked smooth and even.

    This is a gem of a product. My skin stayed matte for most of the day. Makeup was so easy to apply. The only reason I gave porefessional 4 out of 5 is that it's a tad expensive. Great packaging though.
  94. Benefit porefessional is my new must have


    I received this as a free sample ( clever, clever) and fell in love with it. My skin is oily and since being off the pill has been harder to control. This product is wonderful, makes skin super smooth for for make up, makes it stay on longer and helps my skin look flawless. You don't need a lot of this product, a little goes a long way. This product is now an essential part of my make up routine!
  95. it makes your skin super smooth and flawless!


    Although this primer feels a bit 'greasy' when you first apply it, it makes your skin super smooth and flawless! I have quite visible pore on my t zone and they were pretty much invisible with this primer. Cant get enough of benefit products at the moment!
  96. Amazing


    I found the texture of this product amazing!! felt light and glorious! Will be great for summer and just pop it in your handbag for i quick refresh. I found it made my pores a little less noticeable but not a huge amount
  97. Smoothing


    Smoothing and left skin feeling velvety, a little goes a long way, found it didn’t control oil in my T zone all day but did for at least 5 hours then needed to blot my chin and forehead with a tissue.
  98. Love it


    It blurs my pores and makes my complexion look really smooth!! I’ve recommended to everyone!
