Benefit Porefessional Face Primer Range by Benefit Cosmetics


Quickly minimise the appearance of pores and prep your skin for complexion perfection with Benefit POREfessional.

This silicone-based primer works to fill in pores and even the texture of the skin, making a perfect makeup base for flawless foundation application. Pores are minimised, and your skin is refined without clogging. POREfessional is oil-free and acts as a second skin to even out your own complexion. This primer also seals off excess oil from rising to the surface, so oily skin types do not have to worry about their makeup sliding off or becoming patchy. Skin types with an oily T-zone will really benefit from using POREfessional over those problem areas before applying foundation.

How to use Benefit POREfessional:

  • Apply a pea-sized amount of product over the face and blend in with fingertips.
  • POREfessional can also be used just on problem areas, such as the T-zone.


  • Minimises appearance of pores
  • Lightweight
  • Rich in Vitamin E, to protect the skin
  • Available in 2 sizes


Apply this silky, lightweight balm for translucent pore coverage and smoother-than-smooth skin.

The Benefit POREfessional complements all skin tones. It can be used under foundation for a smooth makeup base, or by itself to mattify the skin and help control oiliness.

The POREfessional range has also expanded to include POREfessional Agent Zero Shine, a shine-eliminating setting powder with a built-in brush for on-the-go touch-ups to your perfectly matte complexion. If mattifying is the primary goal in your makeup prep, Benefit POREfessional Matte Rescue Primer is a specially formulated gel version of POREfessional. Matte Rescue still has pore-minimising effects but focuses more on creating an invisible matte finish on the skin.

Amazing - 12-12-2018 by

Best primer I’ve ever used, you can actually see the pores are gone

Absolutely love it - 12-12-2018 by

This product feels amazing on your skin and does a really good job of covering up open pores. It spreads really smoothly on your skin and has a beautifully soft velvet texture!

Best Primers - 07-12-2018 by

One of the best primers I have used. I love that the colour of the primer matches my skin colour so it looks flawless when applied. Best to use with any benefit foundation!

Wish I was using this sooner! - 30-11-2018 by

You only need literally a pea size portion of the primer to work over your entire face and it instantly smooths complexion. I love it and use it on it's own without makeup and also under foundation.

Magic - 27-11-2018 by

Pores actually disappear!

Go to pore filler! - 26-11-2018 by

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!

Great product! - 26-11-2018 by

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.

Amazing Primer - 22-11-2018 by

I love Benefit products and this primer is one of my favourites! It smooths my skin and prepares it well for make up :)

Amazing Primer - 20-11-2018 by

I received a sample of this and now I finally know what all the hype is about! I've used a lot of primers and this one has the most visible pore reducing effect. It sat nicely under makeup and gave my skin a lovely, smooth appearance. I will definitely purchase a full size when my current primer runs out.

Consistent performer - 19-11-2018 by

This primer is so great, the formula seems to work with a good range of different foundations rather than with just benefit products. I love the mini size, it's great for travel or popping in your gym bag

I LOVE this primer! - 19-11-2018 by

I think this is an excellent primer and does exactly what it promises. I love the consistency and definitely see a difference when using this.

I generally just use this product over my nose and areas where my pores are quite noticeable.

For reference my skin is oily/combination with occasional breakouts and I am 29.
I have fine lines, blackheads and textured skin.

I'd say the only major drawback is the price, although it lasts a while as you really don't need too much

Did not impress me - 16-11-2018 by

This appears to be a cult product for some reason unknown to me. I have extremely oily skin with large-ish pores near the centre of my face and I swear by primer. I was recommended this one by a salesperson in Myer and had high hopes for it which it unfortunately did not live up to. It is a slippery, silicony primer and while it applies smoothly, I did not notice any pore minimising action and I got really greasy really fast. I also felt like this clogged my pores somewhat and gave me little under the skin bumps. I will not be repurchasing this.

Best product - 16-11-2018 by

I had bought a mini and fell in love with it so have purchased the large size

Love it - 12-11-2018 by

Love this primer, its a must-have

Great Pore Refining Primer - 09-11-2018 by

This primer is great at filling my lines and pores after moisturiser and before foundation. I feel like it smoothes everything out and creates a nice base. You only need a tiny amount. I tend to just apply on the particular areas not my entire face.

hmm... - 31-10-2018 by

I applied this, and my skin became matte, pores shrunk, skin prepped. then applied foundation and the primer rolled up into little balls on my skin, not blending well at all. maybe use less? have yet to find the perfect primer!

Nice - 26-10-2018 by

Its a pretty good primer, only need a small amount and makes your face feel really smooth. Only downside is it's silicone-based so it broke out my friend (we didn't know she was sensitive to silicones).

Great product - 25-10-2018 by

need a primer to fill your pores this is it. Works like an absolute dream and fills my large pores instantly definitely worth it

clumps up on my face - 24-10-2018 by

this product does not really perform well for me , and often find that it clumps up in little round pieces and once I put makeup on top, the makeup easily smudges away when touched and forms larger clumps .

Maybe the foundation I am using ( makeup forever HD ). does not mesh well with this product .

On its own, it feels nice.

Long term user, long time lover! - 24-10-2018 by

I've been using this primer on and off for about 2 years, and the only times I haven't got it is when I've decided to try another primer because this product has been out of stock or a friend/family member has recommended another one to try. However, I always come back to Benefit Porefessional. NO OTHER PRIMER, does it's job like this product. It goes on easily, make up is smoother after applying this, and I find it actually extends the life of my foundation and concealer. I will continue to use this for years to come, it is by far the BEST primer I have used (I have combination skin and experience breakouts and small bumps under my skin on my forehead and chin). I have tried MAC, Napoleon Perdis, Becca, Tarte and numerous other primers and I can't get enough of this one. It is worth the price!!!

Excellent - 23-10-2018 by

I started using this as a cheaper alternative to another brand I had been using for years and it did not disappoint. It goes on smoothly filling and hiding my pores without leaving any residue. My make up goes on over it effortlessly and it helps my foundation stay put for longer. My skin also doesn't get that afternoon shine on my tzone anymore. I would definitely recommend this for anyone who doesn't like the appearance of their pores through their make up.

Heavy duty - 23-10-2018 by

This product does what it says in that it really does fill in pores. On my combination skin however I felt it was a bit too heavy and I was worried it would clog my pores. I would only recommend to those who don't mind the heavy feeling as I feel there are better ones on the market that minimise pores without the heavy feeling.

Blew my mind - 22-10-2018 by

It really is as good as the reviews say it to be. Perfect primer to get a perfect smooth foundation on. Amazing indeed!

good for matt finish - 18-10-2018 by

really good primer for matt finish

Fills in Pores not sure it's the best - 18-10-2018 by

I like this primer It fills the pores and reduces the size but as far as a canvas goes for foundation its not my favourite. I got the smaller size and it didn't make me want to buy the full size

Best primer ever - 12-10-2018 by

Love this primer. Fills in all my pores. Foundation applies so smoothly over the top. And make up doesn’t budge all day. Have tried a few other silicon based primers and nothing compares to this.

Good Primer for smooth complexion - 11-10-2018 by

This primer works well on my dry skin which is prone to fine lines. It makes foundation application easy and hides large pores on my nose.

Bought this in the travel size before full - 10-10-2018 by

Purchased this in the travel size before buying the full size, even the travel size lasts a really long time - i think I had mine for 8 months, a little really does go a long way with this product - and you only need to concentrate them where your pores are. Creates a good base for makeup application

Must have for large pores! - 04-10-2018 by

I hate my large pores - but my pores go undercover thanks to this handy product. I use this under foundation, but also on my non-foundation days for a smooth, flawless look. It’s best used warmed on fingertips and patted into the pores. Leaves skin feeling silky smooth!

Makes your skin buttery soft! - 26-09-2018 by

This primer is a must-have, not only does it fill in every pore, but it also makes your skin way softer than any moisturiser could. Allows my foundation to glide on.

Magic - 25-09-2018 by

Best primer ever, I literally see the pores disappear in front of me when I apply this. Makes my skin look blurred and makeup goes on so much smoother.

Love it! - 24-09-2018 by

Tried this product after hearing people rave about it and I have not been disappointed!! This product is amazing! My makeup goes on flawlessly and I don't end up with a shiny face by lunch time. Sets my makeup beautifully.

smooths pores - 24-09-2018 by

I use this on my nose to minimise my pores and it works great

Its an ok product.. - 21-09-2018 by

I have acne prone skin. I am not confident that there is much of a difference in my skin/foundation when i use this product compared to when i do not. It does make my skin feel nice and smooth though.

Minimizes pores well - 12-09-2018 by

This product does a lovely job covering up my congested / enlarged pores but does not cover fine lines well. It feels a little bit more oily / greasy than I'd like the texture to be and I don't notice much difference in the evenness of my complexion after I apply. I do really like how it minimizes my pores.

Must have! - 10-09-2018 by

I was amazed at how well my skin looked after just a small amount of this product! I immediately noticed a smoothness to my skin as well as a nice reduction in pore appearance. It made my makeup and concealer adhere better than usual. Also, it gave my skin a matte appearance without making my oily skin any slicker (even after hours of wear). As an added bonus, it has a nice scent and you need not apply much of the product to achieve desired results. Definitely my favorite new item in my makeup bag!

Not good long term - 10-09-2018 by

I originally recieved this primer as a tester and loved it so much i bought it within days. Unfortunately it seems with my combination skin, in the long term, this primer did not agree with me. My t zone area came out in many small pimples.
Unfortunately not one I'll purchase again

Good silicone based primer! Not dry - 10-09-2018 by

Very nice if you are looking for a silicone based primer that is not drying on the skin and fills in pores. I have dry skin and had no problem with this, made my makeup last throughout the day. Enjoyed this little guy. :)

Wonderful !! - 10-09-2018 by

I use this on my nose and cheek area.. Goes on smoothly and completely covers the large pores on my nose and leaves a silky feeling behind. Does not interfere with my makeup, but makes my skin look wonderful even before makeup.. I will be buying this from now on. I LOVE it!

Won't leave home without it. - 10-09-2018 by

Even if I don't have time to put on make up in the mornings I'll put a little bit on just to even out my face. It's the first step in my make up routine and I can't live without it.

Perfect to cover large pores - 10-09-2018 by

I have a large pore on my nose and this product is so good to fill it so it’s not noticeable at all.

Pretty good - 06-09-2018 by

A great primer they makes my pores disappear and my makeup go on flawlessly!

Amazing - 04-09-2018 by

This is great for minimising pores and creating a smooth base for makeup! I also really like the smell

1 star less than real rating as benefit is not cruelty free :( - 30-08-2018 by

A primer that works! I feel that it is drying, but that is only an issue if you dontmoisturise. It really does BLUR the face and actually works as a primer. A fantastic product

Great product - 28-08-2018 by

I’m conscious about my pores, this product does a great job to conceal them. I wish it was a little longer lasting but still a good product that I buy regularly

it works - 28-08-2018 by

i've always been skeptical of primers. i've used my fair share of top-rated primers like smashbox, hourglass and mecca but after i've tried a sample size of this, i was sold. buying a full size tube right now! its smooth, glides on seamlessly and doesn't reduce to icky residue like some primers. worth a try. i've got oily and acne -prone skin for reference.

Fills in pores so well - 27-08-2018 by

Visibly fills in pores and smooths the skin. This is a cult favourite and I can see why. Anyone with big pores should give this a try.

so smooth - 24-08-2018 by

great for big pores! I use it on my nose to make my foundation look smoother

AMAZING!!! - 22-08-2018 by

I cannot stress enough how incredible this product is, such a soft smooth feeling on the skin yet so effective in blocking out blemishes under makeup. Will be buying for a friend!!

Pores, who? - 21-08-2018 by

Leaves skin smooth and poreless.

Okay - 20-08-2018 by

Fills in pores but isn't the best base for foundation.

The best - 20-08-2018 by

One of the few primers that I feel like actually makes a noticeable difference. This fills in my pores so well and creates such a great base for my foundation. I love it

Great product for large pores - 18-08-2018 by

I’ve used a lot of pore priming products now and this is my go to. Doesn’t look greasy or caked on like some do after a few hours. Lasts well with any foundation or light powder

Great - 17-08-2018 by

Holy grail product, it minimizes pores and smoothes skin. It’s a perfect base for foundation and I find that it evens skin tone as well. Definitely recommend this product as it does what it says and it’s also affordable.

Pore filling, but not for oily skin - 16-08-2018 by

I used this primer where I predominantly have large pores, over a regular primer. I really liked it, and felt like my makeup applied smoother and my pores were less noticeable. I wouldn't recommend this for someone with oily skin, as it does have a slightly oily feel.

doll-like complexion - 16-08-2018 by

After applying this product on my T-Zone and nose, it gives me a doll-like complexion. A seriously great product if you have enlarged pores and want to mask them before applying foundation.

Does cover pores- but not great for make up base - 14-08-2018 by

I only use this on my T-zone area and all though it does make the skin feel incredibly smooth- and also does make pores disappear I don’t feel it helps in regards to providing a make up base for foundation.
I have oily skin and found that this product wasn’t great for it as it caused my foundation to move and slip off the areas I used it on. I also feel it may have blocked my pores as I found more pimples start to develop on my nose and T zone areas than before.
I have been to the Benifit counter and tried to obtain samples before and for some reason they don’t offer this as an option which I really dislike- instead you have to Purchase a trial size version which is pretty expensive if it turns out it isn’t suitable for you. In the end I’m glad I didn’t purchase the full sized option as I only use this when more pores are really bothering me, otherwise I would prefer to deal with the pores and use a better alrenative for a more effective makeup base.

Glad I got the mini tube - 13-08-2018 by

Glad I got the mini tube, because I don't think this primer is doing anything for me at all. A lot of people say this helps keep their makeup intact for longer. Good for them, because I really can't say the same. It feels and looks good upon application, but that's it. This primer is not the one for me

Ok primer - 11-08-2018 by

I'm not a huge fan of this primer. It makes your skin feel really nice when you put it on but once you put make up over the top it tends to go bitty and makes my make up slide a little.

Reasonable primer - 11-08-2018 by

Received this primer as a sample in a promotional giveaway. It has reasonable coverage but not the best. It is easy to blend but I find Dermalogica's skinperfect primer a far better performer and it has a slight tint.

Lovely - 08-08-2018 by

A silicone balm that feels very smooth. I only apply this on my t-zone since applying this all over the face will be overkill. Minimizes the appearance of my pores and the mini size fits in any makeup bag since this can also be used for touch ups when pores become visible again, which for me, sometimes happen depending on the humidity. You only tap the product in specific areas to hide those pores again.

Maybe not for oily skin - 07-08-2018 by

Applying this product does make my skin instantly smoother and pores look smaller. However, living in quite humid weather, my skin still becomes quite oily, and the product is quite expensive. Personally, would not repurchase.

Great product! - 07-08-2018 by

Fantastic primer! Works great under foundation! I would definitely recommend!

Makes skin look flawless - 02-08-2018 by

This is a recent discovery and I'm so glad I tried it. Really does make pore look smaller and gives a really nice base for foundation. Only thing is that for some reason it seems to attract dust?! As I apply I always find bits of dust and things sticking to my hand. It never happens with my other primers.

Good coverage - 31-07-2018 by

Great coverage but not the best for oily skin, leaves my face shiny after a few hours!

So good, that my face stayed matte in Singapore's humid weather - 31-07-2018 by

I tried out the mini primer first to test out whether I would like it. It far exceeded my expectations in the staying power it had for my makeup. The mini size was perfect for travelling and in all honesty, a little goes a long way. I used the primer everyday for 4 weeks and I still had primer left in the bottle! The primer allowed for my makeup to stay matte in all sorts of weather as I was travelling to both humid countries and also countries where they were in winter. It also lasted all day! I will definitely continue to buy this.
Note, my skin is oily in the T-Zone area and I experience dryness around the other areas.

I bow down to this product - 31-07-2018 by

Love, love, loveeee this product. Definitely minimized the look of pores and fine lines for me. I gentle press this product into the skin around my T zone with my fingers and only use a little and it gives me a great canvas to work with. Works well with my oily combo skin.

Best primer out there - 31-07-2018 by

I adore this primer. I have dry skin and love the way this feels and wears on my skin. I don't have a huge amount of visible pores, however this primer works so well to 'blur'any imperfections in my skin that some days I just wear it on it's own. It's like an airbrush effect. Both BB cream and foundation apply beautifully over the top, and stay in place for a full day of wear.

Not really for Oily Skin - 30-07-2018 by

I purchased this thinking it would be good for keeping my make up on and not feeling oily by the end of the day, but it doesn't really work that well. It feels nice when applying it, but by lunch time my face feels really oily. I think this product would be better matched for someone with dry skin.

Great product - 30-07-2018 by

This product is great, at least from my sample use. Don't need much, has the funniest texture but on the skin its gorgeous. My skin feels so smooth, makeup goes on well and stays on. I really like this one

Amazing - 27-07-2018 by

I have super oily and sensitive skin and I tried a lot of primers to control the oil and make my make up last longer. This one is my life savior! Now, I'm never not leaving the house without this. Totally the best primer for oily and sensitive skin.

Best primer - 26-07-2018 by

This is the first non-drugstore primer I have ever purchased. Over the years I have tried lots of other primers, but I always comeback to this primer. I have a oily t zone with visible pores. This is the only primer that truly minimises the appearance of pores and keeps my skin mattified. Great product!

Not great for oliy skin - 25-07-2018 by

I find this aids my make up sliding off when my t zone is oily. It does feel nice though and makes my foundation apply really smooth and flawless

Nice but a little overpriced - 25-07-2018 by

This is a really nice primer. The only thing that makes me second guess it is the price. With brands like the ordinary coming out with cheaper alternatives I feel like this one just isn't worth the money anymore

best pore minimising primer - 24-07-2018 by

this primer is amazing and minimises my pores in an instant. can be a little difficult to use at first as i used too much and didnt wait to put my foundation on which made it crease, but just wait a couple minutes then apply your face and it works wonders!

Impressed - 24-07-2018 by

First tried this as a sample and then had to purchase the full size. It is a light non-greasy primer which minimizes the pores on my cheeks/nose. Make up stays put all day as well!

Amazing - 24-07-2018 by

This product is amazing. I have super big pores and it defiantly does what it says. my make up goes on smoother and looks way better that it did with any other primer have tried in the past. if you don't have it I suggest you get it asap .

Love - 24-07-2018 by

I love that this product come in a small size, as i only need in my t zone. Meaning my tube lasts forever! Does exactly what it claims to

Great for creating a smoother base - 20-07-2018 by

I enjoyed using this product and found that it does help minimise the appearance of pores on my face. I swap between products but would definitely buy this again!

Good base - 18-07-2018 by

Nice primer to put makeup over the top.

Works! - 17-07-2018 by

What's not to love when the product actually really works!? Best around!

Tips - 17-07-2018 by

Ok, so my tip with this if you use a mattifying moisturizer is to give your skin at least 5 minutes to really set before going in with this baby. I find that if I don't let my mattifying moisturizer really set I end up with like siliconey clumps.
So in my experience, I would say, let your moisturizer really set in. Then apply to T-ZONE. Gently massage and tap it into the skin; I really like to press it in so it fills them pores.

Don't even bother with other pore minimising primers - 16-07-2018 by

This is currently the BEST on the market. I have tried them all and spent a fortune but this one is the only one I find actually works. Helps my foundation to last longer and look flawless.

Great pore minimisation - 12-07-2018 by

Does what is says it will. Minimised pores dramatically and ensured an even smooth makeup application, however did not improved longevity of makeup or provide oil control, although good to have in a makeup collection!

Great but not amazing - 11-07-2018 by

I have normal/combination skin and this did wonders hiding my pores which is exactly what it is designed for. The only downside was that it was a little bit dry after applying and couldn’t put a matte foundation over the top as it wouldn’t blend in very well. I would definitely recommend it to others though as I found use for it just on its own to hide pores and have a tiny bit of a tint to my face

Face primer but no oil control - 10-07-2018 by

Great as an overall face primer but does not control oil
- Light fresh scent
- Good face primer- leaves skin really even and smooth for makeup application
- Helps makeup stay longer
- My oily t zone shines through within the hour
- Did not feel like it minimized pores.. but more blocked them

Good primer but not great - 06-07-2018 by

I have combination skin with extremely oily t-zone and dry chin area. I find it does not help my t-zone at all and sometimes it just slapped on in a rush it does cling to my dry bits. However it does provide a smooth canvas. Would definitely recommend for normal skin. Not too bad for dry skin however needs to be worked into the skin which I find best with hands.

Lovely primer just not for my oily skin - 05-07-2018 by

This primer does a great job of smoothing out the skin but I find it makes me get even outlier than normal throughout the day. I have more dry patches around my chin and it feels really nice so maybe better for normal skin types

Great primer! - 04-07-2018 by

I have tried many different types of primers and I have to say that Benefit's Porefessional primer is the best one for my skin. It feels soft and makes my skin feel smoother once I have applied it. You don't need to use too much of it either. It also covers up my pores better than other primers. When I use it, my makeup lasts longer and my skin does not get oily as easily (I have combination skin).

Amazing - 04-07-2018 by

I don't have crazy big pores, I originally bought this just because everyone raves about it. O. M. G. It definately made my skin smoother and the foundation looked flawless! And it lasted all day! Without a doubt the best primer I have ever used.

Brilliant!!! - 02-07-2018 by

Such a great product. Covers my pores so that my foundation just slides on. Is quite a small product though so you don't get a lot for your money, I tend to use it sparingly on the areas of my face that I have large pores and then use another primer for all over and reckon this covers my pores insanely good! I have dry skin and works like a charm!

Positive results - 02-07-2018 by

I have combination skin and found this product did do as it claimed, it certainly minimalised my pores and feels so nice going on. Its one of the better bases i’ve used, it just doesnt seem to hold my makeup as long some products

Love - 02-07-2018 by

This products incredible!! It really helps to reduce the size of my pores and blur out any of my imperfections. A little bit really goes a long way so the product will last you a while. It has such a nice texture and consistency which leaves my skin feeling great, and I find it doesn't clog my pores either. I would highly recommend this product.

Miracle worker! - 30-06-2018 by

I have combination/ oily skin and this primer works SO well for me. I have tried a lot of primers and never really saw any made a difference-except this one. As soon as i apply it my pores completely disappear and my foundation goes on like a dream! It also has such a good price! This primer does exactly what it says and I couldn't recommend it highly enough!

Miracle for large pores - 25-06-2018 by

I absolutely love this product. I originally got it as a sample with purchase but now I am hooked. I have been self conscious about enlarged pores on my nose for sometime, this product really helps reducing the look of these. Just a small amount spreads well and provides great coverage, I apply a tinted moisturiser and pressed powder over the top and it works great. I would highly recommend this. The tube lasts for ages also as you don’t need to use much as it spreads really well.

Great for minimising pores!! - 21-06-2018 by

I have dry skin with large pores and a small amount of this primer minimises the pores and helps my foundation go on so smoothly!!

Amazing primer that keeps me matte! - 20-06-2018 by

I have quite oily skin and very enlarged pores. This primer not only keeps me matte throughout the day, but actually fills in my pores. My foundation applies much more smoothly when I use this product - giving me a more airbrushed finish. Would definitely recommend!

#1 Primer! - 19-06-2018 by

I have dry skin that is acne-prone and have tried a few different primers over the years. This primer is my favourite because it primes and preps my skin foundation without being too oily or making me break out. I love that it covers my pores as well and blurs out any imperfections. I highly recommend this primer and it is definitely worth every cent!

Best Primer Ever! - 19-06-2018 by

I have oily sensitive skin, and have tried so many makeup products but this primer is by far the best for my skin type.

It reduces the appearance of break outs and keeps my face looking oil free throughout the day. I absolutely love it!

Porefessional - 19-06-2018 by

I have combination skin where my t-zone is slightly oily but the rest of my face is normal/dry and this product holds well even on the oily parts, it minimisers my pores and keeps my makeup looking fab all day, definitely my hg
