I like the original more

  2. Clumpy


    I found this product difficult to smooth across my face and it actually clumped when rubbed on. It did not reduce pore size and it did not leave a nice base for my makeup either.

  4. t zone


    best for oily skin I use this for my T-Zone and its fab, pore blurring so good around the noise area, and it great for a brighting effect
  5. Brilliant for the T Zone!


    When I want a glowy base for makeup I use this over myT Zone and Mac strobe cream on my cheeks and forehead and my makeup stays all day and sits beautifully. My pores disappear. Love this as an alternative to the original.
  6. Cute shimmery version of the original


    a cute, slightly shimmery version of the original. Still conceals my big pores, especially on my nose and creates a very slight highlight
  7. On the fence!


    The product does what it says, however it is quite sticky and very tacky. The sheen can sometimes be too iridescent under makeup, so it doesn't look natural. In my humble opinion, not worth the hype.
  8. Great


    Smells wonderful. Sweet like candy. Obviously not as mattifying as the other porefessional. So I feel like I see my pores a very tiny slightly bit more, but the pearl gives a nice glow to my somewhat dry skin. I love both and will continue to use both.
  9. Great


    This is a great pore filler and a nice base for foundation! A must have !
  10. Pore filling without the drying effect


    this is a great pore filler (and I actually prefer this to the original)!
    I find that some pore fillers dry out the skin once applied and also find that this one keeps it hydrated and gives a slight luminous glow without making the face look super shinny !
  11. Works


    Got this product as a sample. This product definitely minimizes/blurs the sight of pores underneath makeup and makeup goes on smoothly. However I don't think its a necessity unless you're really conscience about the size of your pores.
  12. Love Love Love


    I have dry skin and sometimes have eczema patches on my face which can make my makeup go flaky. This primer disguised them completely and had my makeup looking fresh all day. Love it wish the tube was bigger.
  13. Good product


    Definitely does minimise the look of my pores under makeup, applies smoothly :)
  14. Undeniably great


    I received a 5ml sample of this and was intrigued to try this as I have the original Porefessional. Just like the original, upon application,pores are gone! It leaves a matte finish so would be extra good for oily skin. This version has a slight pink tint which is unnoticeable upon application and it seems to provide a brighter canvas than the original. I will probably alternate between both depending on how I feel ;)
  15. good but not long lasting


    This is a great product, however quite expensive for just a small tube. I only used it as a spot treatment just on my nose and cheeks, and it worked great for the first few hours of my make up then I could see my pores reappearing, I think my skin soaked up the product quite quickly. It would work great if you were having up close photos taken and wanted a quick fix to pores.
  16. Great


    This is fantastic. Brightens and smooths my skin makes it really pretty. Would repurchase!
  17. Great


    The texture of this primer is amazing it literally feels like velvet and i found a reduction in poor size.
    the pearlescent glow really didn’t work on me at all if anything I felt it made me look overly Oily and because of that I found my foundation didnt sit well.
    I think it would definitely be a good primer for some people but I wouldn’t buy again
  18. Suits me


    I like this product as I tend to have shine which this minimises. It helps me to look healthy, the only reason I didn't give it a five is because of the slight chalkiness but perhaps this is to be expected...I haven't tried primers before
  19. not cruelty free


    poor animals are getting tested on with this product and probably killing them aannndd I can still see my pores
  20. Pore smoothing


    I had been wanting to try the original POREfessional primer for a while, however I didn’t like how Matte it was so I never purchased it. As soon as I saw this product I knew I had to try it. This product is life changing. I only use it on my nose, chin and forehead (tzone) and you only need the smallest amount of product. It fills in and smooths your pores amazingly whilst still leaving the skin with dimension and not being too flat/matifying. I absolutely adore this product and will definitely be purchasing it again.
  21. Best primer I have tried so far


    Absolutely love this product.

    I have lots of acne scars on my face and have tried a few primers before but never really achieved a great result.

    Benefit the POREfessional really does hide all my imperfections, will definitely stick to it.
  22. Small pores, healthy glow


    I prefer the original product as it’s my favourite ever primer, but this is good too. As it’s pearly I prefer it to use it only in the spots you would highlight, and my pores are larger in the places you want matte such as nose and chin. The texture is so smooth makeup glides on amazing!
  23. Lit from within glow


    I’ve been using Porefessional for years now so when I saw there was a new one in a pearl shade, I knew I had to try it. It covers up my pores just like the original porefessional but it leaves my skin with a glow from within! I absolutely love it and has been my go-to since I purchased it :)
  24. Clogs pores and doesn't illuminate


    Overpriced, clogged my pores and didn't illuminate my skin whatsoever.
    This is basically a slightly pink tinted version of the original Porefessional (which clogged my pores also).
    Not impressed at all. Also Benefit is no longer Cruelty Free, so disappointed in this brand.

    Far too over hyped and overpriced. There are much better quality, cruelty free and cheaper brands out there that don't get the positive attention they deserve.
  25. 1 star less than real rating as benefit is not cruelty free :(


    I don't really believe that this primer makes your foundation look dewy after application, it's a VERY subtle pearlescent sheen that does not dilute the matte of foundation at all. It is a great primer though.

    If you want dewy foundation, use a normal primer with liquid illuminator instead. Heaps more effective
  26. Great for dry skin


    I have dry skin and sometimes have eczema patches on my face which can make my makeup go flaky. This primer disguised them completely and had my makeup looking fresh all day. Love it wish the tube was bigger.
  27. Glowing Review


    I am a huge fan of the normal porefessional so thought I'd give this one a go. It is lovely. I got so many compliments about my skin glowing... even through my makeup and this was the only different product i used. It hid the pores around my cheeks amazingly and didn't sink in. Definitely worth a try if you love the original
  28. Good


    I love the normal porefessional primer and this one is just as good, but with an added glow! If you are going for a dewy look this is perfect for you, and you can even put it under your foundation just on the bits you put highlighter on normally for an extra highlight base. I really like this and I think it gives extra value for the money you spend on the normal porefessional.
  29. A good prime


    I purchased the sample size as I love the original POREfessional so wanted to compare... I didn't notice much difference. Which isn't a bad thing because I love the POREfessional product.

    It's great at reducing the pores and works as an amazing primer but I didn't experience much else as far as the pear effect goes.
  30. Disappointing as predicted


    I really don’t know what the hype is about...FOR ME it’s a total disappointment.
    Didn’t do anything it’s meant to.
    After applying my face looked as usual, I do have good fair skin with a bit of redness in cheeks and I got this primer due to its high rating which I find surprising after using it and to give my skin a bit of a boost ...

    It made my pores more visible for the first time contrary to its discriotion and no brilliance or anything.
    Texture is rich and that made it settle on top of the redness making every little imperfection more visible!

    That’s what I was afraid off..I did chat to a product specialist about all that: I asked if it was like Clarins instant smooth and she said no it’s like s mousse..well she was wrong it is EXACTLY like Clarins perfecting touch whuch again didn’t suit me.

    I see a lot of hype for this product, while INIKA primer and BAREMINERALS are barely advertised and they’re way better.
  31. So good!


    I've been looking for a good primer for a while now so I purchased the mini version of this pearl primer. I have oily/combo skin. I loved it. Went on so easy and gave me a glowy finish. I'm just about to buy the full size :)
  32. New favourite


    My foundation has never set as smooth, or looked as flawless as it has since using this primer.
  33. Great product for a healthy glow


    I was a huge fan of the Porefessional Primer, so I had to give this new one a go. It still does a great job of filling in my pores, although doesn't hold up as well on my oily skin type. This is a good alternative for someone who is looking for a primer that gives hydration and glow.
  34. Love this primer


    This is fantastic even to use when usin no make up to make your skin glow ! Received as a sample but will be going on my Wishlist !
  35. My new favourite


    I was a lover of the porefessional however once I tried this one I can’t go back! It smooths my skin and gives a nice healthy looking glow. Keeps my foundation looking perfect all day.
  36. A good primer


    I have super oily skin, and the original Porefessional primer is one of the only primers that helps me control oil. I really dislike a matte finish, so I was super excited to try this out!

    The smell isn't as strong in this primer as it is in the original Porefessional, which is a huge win for me! It doesn't feel as heavy on my skin, either. It blurs pores exactly the same as the Porefessional too.

    However, I didn't really notice anything 'illuminating' about the primer, which is disappointing because that's the whole reason I bought the product. Maybe I'm just not using enough? Otherwise, it's just as good as the original Porefessional primer and still definitely worth trying out. They're almost identical, but I like this one more because there's less of a smell and it feels lighter on the skin. Also - the packaging is cuter. :)
  37. Love!


    This stuff is amazing! As I was applying I could literally see my pores disappearing, made my make up look flawless.
  38. GURLL.....


    Do you remember 2011, when the attempted remake of mean girls was released? Yeah, I want to forget that too, because remakes never are as good as the original. Well, That's what I thought, and I didn't purchase this one straight away for that very reason. The POREfessional isn't broke, so why fix it? BOY was I wrong. After trialling this one originally as a sample, I went and bought the full-size one the next day. It blurs literally everything, like the original, but doesn't make you look flat. I literally wear this every day even without makeup and I've never had so many people comment on how flawless my skin is. Works well with ALL my foundations and makeup lasts. I've never said this about a product until now, Holey grail!


    Always been a lover of Pore-fessional but have been feeling a little too matte and flat! This product is honestly the bomb. Blurred pores and oil control but still a luminous glow? Fabulous.
  40. Amazing & Super stylish!


    I believe Benefit Cosmetics want to achieve a standout product range that defines perfection and delivers what it sets out to achieve. I am extremely happy with product and after years of using another 'Big Name' brand primer, I have found a new one! Thanks Benefit Cosmetics!
  41. Holy Grail Primer!


    Obsessed with benefit products and this is no different! The one problem with my skin is huge pores and this product almost completely diminishes them, i usually use the regular porefessional which i love but was starting to think my makeup looks a little flat/dull which is when i decided to try this! this product is fantastic its matiffying but also gives your skin a soft luminous glow. Highly recommend
  42. I’ve finally found what I’ve been searching for


    This primer is the best primer I’ve ever used! I have oily skin and large pores and this primer mattifies my skin and reduces the look of my pores. It makes my face have a subtle, pinkish, youthful glow, and often I’ll just wear the primer when I don’t feel like putting on makeup. It feels so silky smooth and makes my makeup stay put all day! I feel so confident wearing it because I’m quite conscious of my skin and this makes me look fresh and radiant. I’m so happy I tried this product because now it’s my primer for life.
  43. Crazy good


    I AM SHOOK! The original Pore fessional didn’t really speak to but when Benefit came out with this pearl primer, I needed it. I’m all about that glow from within look and that’s exactly what I was able to achieve with this primer. It leaves your skin feeling super smooth which helps your foundation glid on like magic.
    I see you Benefit!
  44. The original + glow


    I have used the original POREfessional for years. This is just as good as the original at smoothing out pores and priming my face for foundation application. The illuminating part of this primer is quite subtle, this gives my skin a healthy glow from within look. Very happy with this product as a primer.
  45. Pretty but not sure it primes that well!


    This gives the face a lovely sheen and does feel amazing on so its great just to use with some bb cream etc but under thick makeup it doesn't work as well as I expected in comparison to competitor brands.
  46. Good primer


    The texture of this primer is amazing it literally feels like silk and really does shrink my pores! However the pearlescent glow really didn’t work on me at all if anything I felt it made my foundation look more matte..
    I think it would definitely be a good primer for some people but I wouldn’t buy again
  47. Does a good job


    I rate this product as good value for money. I don’t do heavy faces of makeup so enjoy the somewhat light feeling of this primer.
  48. Great to use on its own!


    Makes me look so nice and dewy! I love to use this on its own as it doesn't seem to work that well as primer, not as matte as I would like. I like how smooth it applies and the luminous glow it gives - definitely an easy product for days I'm lazy to wear foundation or prefer to not. I think the original works better as a primer.
