Most Helpful Positive

Helps my make up glide on and stay on

Melissa

This is my favourite primer I have oily skin and this helps to glide on my matte foundation. Long lasting and my skin looks flawless all day.

Most Helpful Criticism

Not impressed

Kerry

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.

  2. Hides my pores so well

    Michelle

    This hides my pores really well but I find it makes liquid foundation harder to apply, this works better with powder foundation for me. Some days I put this on by itself without make up

  4. HOLY GRAIL PRIMER

    Bayden

    holy grail primer right here!!! Hides my large pores and large blemishes! Leaves me with a smoother finish
  5. Great for oily skin

    Madeleine

    Didnt work all over as a primer for me. Only on my nose it worked blending out pores. Made my foundation go funny when i used on my whole face.
  6. Used to love it

    Caitlin

    I loved this primer as it does exactly what it says it will do but found that after a while my foundation would ‘slip off’ my nose and wouldn’t sit right.
  7. Not my favourite pore minimising product

    Sinead

    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
  8. Smoothing

    Nicole

    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.
  9. Love it

    Lisa

    It blurs my pores and makes my complexion look really smooth!! I’ve recommended to everyone!
  10. Not the best

    Jenna

    I absolutely love Benefit products but this one was no good for me. It didn’t feel particularly good on my skin and my make up didn’t sit it well on it. Unfortunately only used it once or twice. Will try something else next time as every other Benefit brand product I’ve purchased has been spot on.
  11. Tiny pores

    cindy

    This stuff makes my pores look tiny. Do be careful not to use too much product otherwise it can ball up and make make-up slide a little.
  12. Perfect finish

    Sha

    Classic primer from benefit - controls oils and fills in pores. Can break me out if I use it too much though and it does have a tint which can look ashy on deep skin. It gives a great finish when you wear foundation over the top
  13. Not sure

    Beautygal

    This stuff kind of made my skin worse, it didn’t minimise my pores either. Wasn’t into the smell or the thick texture which didnt feel nice smearing it on my face.
  14. Smooths complexion

    Cassie

    I like how this smooths the complexion, filling in pores. However, I don’t think that it controls oil very well. But overall it’s a nice product and I like how it makes makeup apply on top of it.
  15. Leaves skin dry but smooth

    Grace

    I started using this product roughly a month ago. I moisturise prior to using this product as I already have quite dry skin. I find that this product still leaves my skin quite dry after use and the makeup doesn't glide on as it does with other primers. However it still leaves skin smooth once applied.
  16. Smooth!

    Erin

    This product applies so easily, leaves your skin feeling soft and it covers up your pores I was so amazed!!
  17. Leaves skin dry

    Kathleen

    I do like this product I feel that it helps with covering large pores before putting foundation on! Although it does leave my skin very dry around the nose area unsure if it would clog pores even more?
  18. silk in a tube

    rachel

    this literally feels like silk being applied to the skin. the only downside i did find is sometimes it balled up on my skin, but other than that it literally feels amazing
  19. I don’t love it

    Loren

    Everyone raves about this product but it really doesn’t sit well on my skin and do a whole lot. It texture ends up oily after a few hours. I want it to work for me so bad!
  20. Game Changer

    Tori

    This stuff is INCREDIBLE! I cannot speak highly enough of it. It goes on so smooth and reduces the look of pores giving you an airbrushed look. A little goes a long way too, I have had mine for a year now and have barely used that much. Love love love!
  21. Amazing

    Cate

    I find this primer to be very smooth & a little goes a long way.. I'm 44 & I guess I'm very lucky I don't have many wrinkles.. & my whole life I have never washed my face with chemical's as my eyes are so sensitive to everything.. even makeup so I don't wear any as my eyes water for 2-3 days after.. UNTIL now I have found anything benefit has just been amazing.. I feel like a teenager again getting excited about makeup.. I would recommend anyone with sensitive skin to try this
  22. Don't believe the hype!

    Denise

    This product is known as a cult classic, and so I was very excited to try it. I have to say that I'm not a fan. I think it leaves skin congested and doesn't create a flawless look at all. This may not be true for everyone, speaking for myself as a person with sensitive combo skin. I personally get way better results prepping my skin with a good routine and using a quality moisturiser before makeup application.
  23. Must have

    Leah

    Love how this primer glides on the skin effortlessly, fills in pores amazingly and I find it helpful to use a gentle pressing motion when applying!
  24. Little goes a long way

    Diana

    I bought mine 3 months ago and there's still heaps left. I have oily skin and large pores so it matches the target description, but not sure if it's actually good or because it's so heavily marketed.
  25. Good Enough

    Claire

    I dont hate this product, but I'm also not convinced it does a whole lot across a day. My makeup sits on top of it well, initially. By the end of the day there is little difference between using this product and not.
  26. Not suitable for me

    WAfa

    I don't like it. I bought this sample to try it after I heard alot alot of good comments about it, but unfortunately I shocked, it's not work for me. I didn't find any difference after used it.
  27. Love this product

    Amy

    This is amazing it’s silky glides on and is just the perfect primer
  28. Does cover pores, but quite thick

    Jessica

    I do like this product, but not on its own. I feel like it is a bit thick and hard to get good coverage if using over the whole face, however, when I combine it with the ordinary high speadability fluid primer it is perfect. I use the ordinary one first, then I put this one over where my pores are more enlarged (nose, cheeks and chin) and get the best coverage. Would buy again in combination with the other primer.
  29. Go to pore filler!

    Madison

    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!
  30. Smooths out under eyes

    Crystal

    I wasn’t looking for a new primer but I wanted to try out some of Benefit’s most hyped products so I purchased the mini Porefessional and I was surprised by how much I loved this. Having dry skin I usually use an illuminating primer because I love that dewy hydrated look but I’ve been struggling lately with trying to create a smooth (but not matte) finish. Well I’m so happy with this product because it actually does what it claims, however, I only use it under my eyes and in my t-zone and I use my other primer everywhere else - it seems to be working really well and my under eyes are looking so much smoother. Would definitely repurchase!
  31. Nothing special

    Caitlyn

    I'm not super convinced about this product - I've recently grown my fringe out and have realised that the pores on my forehead have become quite a bit more noticeable over the last few years - I was hoping that this would cover them but to be honest it hasn't made a noticeable difference. It works fairly well as a primer, and does control shine to a certain extent, but I wouldn't go so far to say that it gives a matte finish like it has for some other reviewers. Helps my makeup stay on, but doesn't really do what I was hoping it would do, and I think there are other, silicone-free general-purpose primers out there that would be better if that's all I was after. Probably won't re-purchase but I'm not completely disappointed.
  32. Glides right on

    Kellee

    This primer is really great when you are wanting your skin to look matte. Sometimes I even use this without wearing any foundation just to keep my skin looking smooth and matte. It goes on so smoothly!
  33. Great but pricey for small tube

    Tara

    I love this product. Works so well at hiding pores and it is great for controlling my shine and leaves my make up on flawless all day.

    Only negative would be it is a tiny tube and pricey.
  34. Good little primer

    Simone

    This primer makes my skin feel so smooth. It's the best primer I've used so far and helps cover my large pores well but I still feel my pores could be hidden better so I will continue my search for one that suits my skin. The tube is so small and is very pricey considering how long it lasts.
  35. Glad I bought

    Frankie

    I really like how this product feels on my face - helps control shine throughout the day, even with my oily skin. Great for putting in your handbag.

    Only negative was that the tube was super tiny!
  36. Slightly fills in pores but not the best primer for oil control

    T

    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.
  37. Good primer

    Ally

    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.
  38. Smooths your skin

    Iq

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

    MB

    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.
