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 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

Fantastic!! - 07-06-2018 by

Great for covering dry flaky skin! My nose is always flaky and without this product my foundation comes off within an hour but with it, my foundation stays all day!

Best Primer I have used - 30-05-2018 by

I have used a few different primer products but, this one by far is my favourite. The price is a little steep for me but, it is definitely worth it. The product is silky smooth when applied and you can see a noticeable difference compared to when it is not worn under makeup. I would get your hands on this product if you can. Do not buy off of ebay.. I made the mistake of doing this, as it was priced as $12.00 **it was a fake.

Great primer for minimising pores - 21-05-2018 by

I love this primer and use it almost every day under makeup. I have combination skin and tend to get oily around my t-zone plus have bigger pores there as well. I apply this primer all over my face but concentrate it in my t-zone. It definitely fills in my pores and gives me a smooth base for makeup. I have sensitive skin and haven't had any issues with this primer at all. This primer is definitely a staple.

Worth the money - 21-05-2018 by

I've only tried this a couple of times but I really enjoy it - I focus it on my nose/T-zone area to fill and blur the larger pores I have there and use a more hydrating primer on the rest of my face and so far it plays really well with other products.

I'd definitely buy this again.

Bye Bye Pores - 17-05-2018 by

This product really does minimise the look of pores and smooth the look of the skin. I find using a little is better otherwise too much will form little balls. This product works really well over most of my face however having an oily t-zone means the product sometimes slides off my nose after all day wear.

Not great for my sensitive skin - 16-05-2018 by

I've heard so many people say they love this product, but unfortunately the smell and formula is irritating on my sensitive skin. It just didn't work for my skin type!

Really depends on your skin type... - 08-05-2018 by

This is a product i've learned to use sparingly.
Yes it kept my foundation on and stayed in place but it enhanced my pores on and around my nose, if it was dry, and showed off my acne only a few hours in.

Great Primer! - 08-05-2018 by

This primer is definitely one of my favourites! It does a great job of concealing my pores and keeping my make up in place all day long. It also makes my foundation glide on smoothly. It is of a good consistency - not too thick and is never oily! It makes the perfect base for my foundation!

Not good for oily skin! - 08-05-2018 by

I have oily skin and rather than covering my pores, due to it being an oil-based formula, it slides off underneath my foundation. I mainly use it on my nose and even after setting it with powder, I feel it encourages MORE oil to seep through my foundation and therefore showing more pores.

Best primer - 08-05-2018 by

This is the best primer I have come along in a longgg time. I have trouble with finding something that smooths my skin but doesn't make my skin oily so this product is great for both. The smaller size is great as well when you are travelling

Actually makes a difference! - 08-05-2018 by

This is a great primer for those with visible pores that you want hidden. I pat the primer into my skin and I do notice a difference in the visibility of my pores after I apply foundation. Will definitely be re-purchasing.

Love it! - 07-05-2018 by

I love Porefessional! I've been using it for years. I have combination-oily skin, and this is perfect for me. It's super lightweight and leaves your skin feeling soft and smooth and looking naturally radiant. I sometimes use it by itself, or as a primer.

YES - 30-04-2018 by

This primer is my favourite for pore filling and longevity of my makeup. it leaves my skin smooth and looking perfect

Buy it now! - 30-04-2018 by

So, as every other review on this product, THIS. IS. AMAZING. It does exactly what it says & a little goes a long way. I'm not going to go on & on, all I can say is BUY IT!!! YOU WONT REGRET IT!

The best pore minimising primer I've used! - 29-04-2018 by

Definitely recommend this primer, it smooths over pores to allow for a gorgeous makeup application. I use this product every day and wouldn't use anything else!

Amazing - 29-04-2018 by

I have dry skin with visible pores so wanted a primer that reduced pore size without clinging to my skin. I didn't think it existed until I found porefessional. It's so lightweight and you can literally see it blur your pores! I even wear this on makeup free days as it adds a soft filter-like effect to my skin. A must have for anyone with visible pores!

tick all the boxes - 29-04-2018 by

blurs skins, fills in pores (REALLY large pores) and makes a perfect canvas for my complexion products!

you can't loose - 19-04-2018 by

This is the best primer I've ever used it makes your makeup go on so smoothly and also doesn't irritate my skin!

Nice smooth primer - 19-04-2018 by

This is a really nice smoothing and mattifying primer, I use it in areas that need to be mattified and it works very well. It’s very light and blendable.

Favorite Primer to matify and blur pores - 18-04-2018 by

I really love this primer for my t-zone. I have a really oily t-zone and large pores in my nose area and this just reduces the shine and blurs my pores. I would recommend the large size as I feel like you really don't get much product in the smaller size. Also, make sure to always cut your tubes open when you think you have ran out, there is always still a bit of product left in there :D

One of the best primers I have used - 16-04-2018 by

Does exactly what it says, glides I’m feeling beautiful with its soft silky texture, hides your pores all day and keeps makeup stuck in place, one of my all time favourite primers.

Good primer for combination skin - 16-04-2018 by

This primer helps to smooth out my skin, and helps with foundation application and its staying power. I think it does help with the appearance of pores, but sometimes can make my skin look dull, and can cling to dry patches.

Very greasy - 03-04-2018 by

I have very oily skin with huge pores. I was recommended this primer for both reasons! While it does do a good job of covering pores, this primer is super greasy! As soon is I applied it my skin was shiny and oily. Foundation didn’t go on nicely on top and I was super oily with this on. Definitely wouldn’t recommend this for anyone with oily skin!

Best primer I’ve found so far - 03-04-2018 by

This is the best primer I’ve used in my quest for the perfect one! Some primers area great at smoothing pores but do nothing to reduce oil and shine. Benefit’s does both and really effectively.
My make up goes on better and I use less powder during the day because I don’t get as much shine.
Love this product and will keep using it and I’ve already told friends they need it as part of their beauty routine.
Good to know I can always get it quickly with Adore!

Good - 03-04-2018 by

I’ve only gotten the mini size. Never used it as full face primer but it does fill in my pores better than any other product I’ve tried so far.

Still Searching - 29-03-2018 by

This primer is average. I have combination skin with a t-zone that gets shiny by lunchtime. The consistency of this primer is unlike any others that I've used in that it doesn't glide as much and I feel like I have to use more because of this. It felt more like a smooth paste. It did minimize oiliness (compared to if I used no primer at all) but not as much as I was hoping. It also did nothing for my pores. Zero change in visibility.

It might be worth mentioning that I use mineral powder foundation rather than liquid, which is perhaps why this wasn't as effective for me as it was for others that have rated it highly.

I have just purchased the Estee Lauder The Mattifier Perfecting Primer. Will give that a go next in my search for my HG primer.

HOLY GRAIL PRIMER - 22-03-2018 by


Amazing! - 19-03-2018 by

I have tried so many primers that supposedly target oily skin and minimise shine but had no success until I used this product.I would definitely recommend this primer as it minimises that oily/shiny skin you have at the end of the day, it helps my foundation to look fresh all day and I have found is an overall all rounder!

Word! - 08-03-2018 by

One... Two... Three and Four...
at least this many times before,
I’ve received POREfessional from Adore....
and trust me, there will be MANY more!
My sometimes sensitive skin Is fine
My make up goes on so smooth every time
With my pores almost gone
Get this Shiz as it’s the bom!

A beauty essential! - 06-03-2018 by

I have been using this product for 2 years now and it is the best primer I have ever used. I have rather oily skin and this has been the only primer I have ever found that mattes my skin prior to makeup application.

I live in regional NSW so buying this product in store is not an option. Adore Beauty is my life saver, I always know that my order will arrive quickly and I love all the lil gifts that I get with my purchases including the Tim Tam which I will admit did not last very long after leaving the box lol.

Thank you for making my beauty essentials so accessible!

Blurs those pores - 06-03-2018 by

The Porefessional face primer is perfect for use with matte foundations if you struggle with oily skin and large pores. By filling in the pores, foundation glides on much smoother and the foundation then doesn't exaggerate your imperfections. I like to use this primer on my nose and cheeks and then use the Benefit Porefessional Matte Rescue on my forehead and chin. I also like that you can purchase the product in a sample size if you don't want to commit to the larger size.

Can't live without this essential and versatile product. - 06-03-2018 by

This product is worth every penny.

Great to be used as a primer, fights shine and makes your skin look lovely and even.

Great for a quick touch up over the T zone, at the end of the day.

Can be used as a tinted moisturiser, with a lovely matt finish. Reduces dark circles under eyes.

I'm now addicted to this product, it is an essential part of my routine everyday.

Changed my mind! - 06-03-2018 by

I read so many good reviews on this product and just had to try it myself to believe it.

When i first bought it, I didn't think it was anything special. I only need it for my nose. Sometimes I forget to use it and on those days, I can honestly say I notice a difference which is how it made me change my mind.

I don't know what I did without it before!

Holy Grail - 20-02-2018 by

This is the best primer for my oily skin and large pores. It glides on and then seems to melt in to my skin, smoothing my skin out perfectly.

YOU WILL LOVE IT - 12-02-2018 by

I have been using this for YEARS now and i am a huge fan of Benefit products. This is my every day essential. It covers up my pores and sets my face for my foundation. I would recommend this to those who have yet to try it. Can try the small one first!

LOVE - 06-02-2018 by

I love this primer. Repeat buyer. I had my make-up done professionally for a wedding and the make-up artist loved it as well. I can't imagine using anything else.

Fills in pores - 23-01-2018 by

I received this in a gift set.
It does fill in pores and leave a flawless base.
I do really like this, but it is a bit silicony and doesn't play nicely with all my foundations.
It DOES work wonderfully with some of them though.
I would recommend

Amazing for large pores - 17-01-2018 by

This product does a great job at hiding my pores. A little goes a long way which means the large tube has lasted me a long time. This primer is great for all skin types however i often layer it with a mattifying primer over the top to ensure my foundation doesn't slip away.

Goodbye pores - 28-12-2017 by

This does exactly what I say says it does and it’s anazing. If you have larger pores this perfect for blurring them out. I skmetmes even use it on make up free days to blur them out

I love this primer - 03-12-2017 by

A little goes a long way with this product. I really like the texture of the product and how easy it glides onto your skin. I purchased the travel size, as test. Next time I will be buying the larger size.

So smooth! - 13-11-2017 by

I have bought this product again and again. I have sensitive skin and this doesn’t cause any issues. My skin feels soo smooth when I put it on and it reduces the appearance of my pores. It’s a beautiful base for make up. You know it’s good when you have your make up professionally done for a wedding and the make up artist comments at how impressed she is. Highly recommend.

HOLY GRAIL PRIMER - 13-11-2017 by

I love this stuff so much. Yes it’s pricey. But it’s worth it. I have terrible pores, this stuff definitely minimises them. All of my foundations go on beautifully with it, it feels. Ice and light on the skin, hasn’t caused me break outs and I honestly believe it makes my make up last longer. A little goes a long way which helps with the price point. Try it, you won’t be disappointed.

My new favourite! - 05-11-2017 by

I didn't think I would like this product but I really am in love with it!
It makes my skin look and feel amazing!
I use it as a primer and my foundation sits perfectly and lasts all day!
Definitely recommended this!

Lightweight primer - 22-10-2017 by

This primer creates a great base for your face. It feels so nice and smooth, with a silky texture that glides on easily. I purchased the travel size to test out the product. I will be purchasing the full size next time!

Great! - 18-10-2017 by

Great product that mattifies the skin and keeps my pore under control! I use this on special ocassions as I find it can sometimes clog my pores and cause tiny blackheads - I do have very sensitive skin though.

Love this product! - 18-10-2017 by

Love the way it makes my skin feel. It is light on the skin and leaves a dewey effect. Pores are less prominent after use and works as an excellent primer. Highly recommend!

Great pore minimiser - 25-09-2017 by

Love this primer is my favourite at the moment! It's great and my foundation stays on all day!

PURE GOLD! - 19-09-2017 by

I WILL NEVER CHANGE PRIMERS AGAIN! I was slightly curious as to why this product has soooo many sparkling reviews since other brands I've used have never lived up to their promise. This will do, no word of a lie, exactly what it says it does! How does it feel to put on you ask?, Does the thought of a silky pillow from the gods sound horrible to you? Porefessional is generous as well, a little goes a long way so yes, the tube sizes may not be impressive but at the end of the day, its not the size its how you use it! My pores are completely hidden by this mask of glory. I will certainly be coming back here to buy many more of Porefessional in the future.

By far the best primer I have ever owned - 18-09-2017 by

Simple & easy to apply, this primer not only achieves amazing effects on minimising your pores, it gives a lovely dewey effect, Light on the face, you would never know you are wearing it! its not greasy or oily. I love the ease of applying my foundation over it & the additional stay power it gives to my make up, especially when I live in such a hot & humid area of Australia. look no further ladies - this primer is the best!

This is porefect - 12-09-2017 by

I needed a new primer and seen this recommended by many beauty influencers so I bought the mini to try it out and omg it's amazing. It's so light weight and the texture makes my skin feel soft and smooth it appears to blur my pores and my make up glides flawlessly on top. I would highly recommend this product I love it and this will be my ride or die primer from now on.

truely blurs the appearance of pores - 07-09-2017 by

I have tried many primers in the past year but can truely say the Benefit Porefessional reaps the best results. This primer has no room for improve, and does everything it claims to. This product truely blurs the appearance of pores and has an unbelievable lightweight formula. I use this on a range of different skin types as a MUA and found that I can never go wrong with this primer. Worth every cent.

Amazing! - 26-08-2017 by

Have to say I love this product!

Amazing product - 07-07-2017 by

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!

It's okay - 07-07-2017 by

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.

Porcelain skin is a real thing! - 07-07-2017 by

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!

Pore-amazing! - 07-07-2017 by

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!

excellent product - 07-07-2017 by

excellent product by benefit- highly recommend- makes applying makeup an even better experience!

Actually does what it says - 07-07-2017 by

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.

A must have - 07-07-2017 by

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.

The POREfessional - 07-07-2017 by

Love this product, use it everyday and it lasts ages!

Love it for lasting smooth foundation - 07-07-2017 by

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.

Great Primer - 07-07-2017 by

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.

A MUST - 07-07-2017 by

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.

LOVEEEEE - 07-07-2017 by

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

Beautiful product to use - 07-07-2017 by

Although expensive for the size, it gives a nice light coverage and is perfect for sensitive skin.

Great Investment - 07-07-2017 by

'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 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!

L-L-Love it! A must have product! - 07-07-2017 by

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!

Worth the price - 07-07-2017 by

Makes a huge difference to the visibility of poresv

Clever! Porefection - 07-07-2017 by

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.

- - 07-07-2017 by

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!

Benefit porefessional is my new must have - 07-07-2017 by

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!

From porous to porcelain - 07-07-2017 by

I received a free sample of this with my last order and was so impressed with it that I felt inclined to review it.

I applied this beautiful, skin coloured creme on top of Napoleon Perdis Auto Pilot and my tinted moisturiser/sun cream. When I applied it, I actually said "OH WOW" out loud (this requires mentioning because I live alone and subsequently shouldn't be talking to myself!). Thats how impressed I was.

The effect was immediate! My T-zone went from porous to porcelain in an instant. The product is like silk under my fingers and the effect lasted for hours. I didn't think it felt greasy or heavy or in any way nasty at all.

The best thing about it is that it can be applying on top of your makeup, so it's perfect for touch ups through out the day.

I will DEFINITELY be purchasing the full size product.

- - 07-07-2017 by

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
