A trusty primer I've been loyal to for years

Chloe

Absolutely love this primer, in my opinion, it's better than the original porefessional (and I love that one too). The best thing about this primer is that it helps my makeup stay on all day and does reduce the appearance of my pores, especially once I have makeup over the top too. It's a nice, silky texture, and sometimes I even wear it without makeup! It gives the skin that little bit of extra radiance.
Also, a tube lasts me about a year so while it is kinda expensive, it's definitely worth it!

Goodie bag gift. Definitely didn’t help much to cover the pores on my face.
  1. smoothing

    Emma

    Smoothing primer if thats what you're looking for. Honestly I can't really tell the difference between this and the original. This has a small amount of micro glitter but its barely noticeable.

    That primer is really nice, it's very smooth to my skin after applied.
  4. loveee this

    bec231

    new favourite primer, makes my foundation go on so nicely
  5. amazing

    DG

    I've tried this one and the other blue professional primer. I would say they are both similar. VEry good primers. I would say that this more luminous dewy type
  6. Lovely finish

    Ally

    This is similar to the other benefit primer but this one makes the skin look more luminous and less matte
  7. Nice Touch

    Sam

    This is a great alternative to the original Porefessional.

    Adds a hint of pearlecent shine to you skin which can come through your foundation, giving off a slight glow.

    May not be suitable with those with oily skin but it does not exaggerate those with slight shine or larger pores.
  8. Pearl primer

    Ananya

    It is the same as the original POREfessional primer but with a little bit shine that reduces dullness.
  9. Didn’t think it would of worked!

    Sez

    I have massive pores on my nose and this totally blurred out everything! Worth the hype!
  10. Not much difference

    AB

    As a primer it's fine, I haven't noticed a difference with my pores though
  11. You NEED To Try This

    KEB94

    If you’re like me and have huge pores, you NEED to try this. It blurs your pores to a point that you have a completely flat base to work with. Seriously, you should see the difference in my nose. That speaks for itself.
  12. Looks beautiful – not great for my skin

    Kellie

    I LOVE how this looks under foundation, so creamy and beautiful. However, almost every primer seems to block my pores no matter what I do. I had more luck with this product than most, but still some issues. Would consider repurchasing, but not completely sold.
  13. not the best

    Cherry

    i tried to like this primer but whenever i put makeup over it, it crumbles. i don't know why it does that but i used moisturiser and then the primer then makeup and it crumbles. so it is a miss for me.
  14. not sure

    Siana

    i couldn't really see much of difference in my pores I prefer other brands for primer :)
  15. nice

    Doodoo

    I love the benefit porefessional primer it's my ride or die. So I decided to try this one out as well. This one gives that glowy dewy look and also minimises my pores.
  16. Love

    aliD

    Received as a sample & really love it. Another great Benefit "pore"-hiding primer. Can give a dewy look rather than matte, so depends on what other make-up you pair with, to give natural look. Love the feel - just very expensive.
  17. Great Primer!

    Jo

    This is a great primer, it really does make you look pore-less. Lovely smell and a slight highlighting effect. Mattifies without drying. Will be purchasing again!
  18. Love it

    Rach

    At first I wasnt so sure about it, but I tried it again & it really does smooth our your skin making it look really clear and smooth, i havent tried it under make up but i can tell it would work well also. Will be purchasing in the future.
  19. Minimises the pores on my problem areas

    Sam

    Received as a gift with purchase and loved the results. Definitely noticed that it minimised the appearance of the pores on my nose. Would have given 5 stars if the price point wasn't so high for a primer.
  20. Amazing primer

    Kelly

    I received a sample of this primer, i used it for a week and it is amazing! A little goes a long way, after foundation it left my skin looking smooth and flawless and improved the longevity of my makeup. It felt a little drying on my skin by the end of the day, but the improvement in the appearance of my makeup was worth it.
  21. Saving my 'glazed donut' skin daily!

    Nicole

    Having oily skin that resembles a glazed donut by 3pm every day, this product brightens my skin, gives it a matt finish perfect for makeup, and minimises the look of pores. I received it initially as a sample and purchased the full size version immediately! I LOVE IT!
  22. Silky smooth skin

    Bronte

    I received a sample of this product and it is lovely! Smooths skin texture and blurs imperfections. Perfect base for makeup or you can even use without makeup.
  23. Natural radiance

    sarah_amyy

    Amazing under make-up, but it is my go to over my moisturiser for silky smooth skin all day. No fines lines.
  24. Really Great Primer

    Kyra

    I really love this primer! Even on it's own with no foundation, it smooths out my skin and gives me a healthy glow. I don't think it quite fills my pores like it suggests, but it definitely makes my skin look more even.

    Jo

    This is a great primer and it makes my makeup stay on all day. It makes my dry skin appear glowy and minimises my pores.
  27. Smoothing

    Em

    I was shocked at the reviews for this as I received this as a sample gift and tried it, loved it. I don't ever use a primer because have never noticed a noticeable difference with one... but this one is so good! as soon as I put it on my face my pores were gone, skin smooth, and my born this way foundation looked so good on top.

  29. Blurs pores minimally.

    Beautypedia

    The POREfessional Pore Minimizing Makeup has an ultra-lightweight formula that promises to control excess oil for up to eight hours and blur pores at the same time. We sure wish it did just that, but unfortunately there are some significant issues that hold this product back.

    We first have to point out that Benefit calls this "face makeup" to "target problem areas" rather than referri...

  30. Doesn’t work :(

    Jess

    This didn’t work well for me. I found that it kept balling up when I would try to apply products on top even after waiting a while for it to settle into my skin
  31. Wasn't my vibe

    Brucey

    If you like pore clogging primers then it would be OK for you... BUT If you have acne prone skin (like me) then I would not recommend it... I think it made my skin worse and it made my skin feel heavy and unable to breathe.
  32. Not as good as I thought it would be

    Jayde

    I didn’t hate this primer but also didn’t like it either. It’s VERY thick and the bottle isn’t very big so I felt like I spent a couple minutes just rubbing it into my face.
  33. Great!

    Si

    It makes my dry skin appear glowy and minimises my pores. This is a great primer and it makes my makeup stay on all day.
  34. Amazing

    Tia

    This gives me a dewy finish and makes my foundation look great
  35. Great!

    Nadia

    I have large and noticeable pores on my cheeks and they were minimized instantly. Works great and adds a dewy glow too. Great product from benefit again.
  36. Amazing

    ton

    I do love this primer, it helps fill in my pores to give a smooth look, but i don't think its worth the price, there are other cheaper primers out there that do the same thing.
  37. Great primer for oily skin when you still want some light

    Danielle

    I love this primer. I have very oily skin so need a mattifying primer, but I still like my skin to look bright. This does exactly that and I particuarly like it for summertime. Most other primers for oily skin make my skin look dull, whereas this mattifies and leave a nice highlight.
  38. Not as good as then original

    Ruby

    I have used the original benefit primer for years, such a great product. For some reason I did not find the pearl as effective. I found my skin became oiler sooner and it did not blur my poor as well. Still a good product but I will stick to the other.
  39. amazing

    Doodoo

    I love the benefit porefessional primer it's my ride or die. So I decided to try this one out as well. This one gives that glowy dewy look and also minimises my pores.
  40. Good enough to even wear without makeup

    Rach

    Sits great under liquid foundation, with a slightly dewy finish. I have even worn it just on it's own and it still makes my skin look fab!
  41. Love this for everyday!

    Kel

    When I received this as a sample I wasn't sure about the 'pearl' factor, but can say now it is my favourite for everyday use! Not only is it a fab primer the pearl gives a great little glow. I have gone from not being a primer girl to now purchasing the full price product. A little goes a long way which is also a bonus.

  43. Not that good

    T

    I am not a fan of Benefit primers and this is no exception. This leaves a white cast and doesn't exactly seep into my skin and makes the foundation also not sit well. Maybe because I have combination skin or what but this just doesn't work for me.
  44. Great primer

    E.R.

    I LOVE the original Porefessional so of course had to try this as well. It's really good - it has a similar pore-blurring effect as the original but with an added subtle dewy glow. I prefer a matte look generally so will ordinarily wear just the Porefessional, but I use this when I want a more dewy look and it wears really well under foundation and gives my skin added lustre without emphasising my...

  46. Best primer for dull oily/dry combination EVER

    _Rachel

    I have dull, sallow yellowish skin that gets really oily and open pores around my nose and middle forehead, but is also annoyingly dry and flaky in patches. I never would have chosen this primer because it is called "pearl" and I am afraid of anything that is not ultra matte because of my oily nose and open pores. I tried this because I received a free sample and I could not believe how awesome it...

  47. Really nice primer

    Leash

    I received this primer as a sample and was very impressed. It glides on so nicely and straight away makes my skin feel soft and ready for me to apply my foundation. I have noticed my foundation stays better and gives me a nice shine. I will be ordering the full size product.
  48. Really nice primer!

    Suzannah

    I have this and the standard version, and alternate depending on what my skin is doing. I use the pearl version when my skin is looking good, to give me a bit of extra glow.
    I don't tend to wear a lot of makeup, so like to wear these to blur blur and smooth my skin with a little concealer. Works well to blur out my pores and just make my skin look more refined. Also works well under my mak...

  50. Goodbye pores

    Kristy

    I received this as a sample from AB and I have used the regular POREfessional primer but had not tried this Pearl version. Just like the original, this is great at minimizing pores. I have used it over my foundation too as a highlighter - just to see what effect it would have and it was subtle but cute. It did not cause a breakout. I'm not sure if I will purchase it in its full size, however, I d...

  51. Benefit POREfessional pearl

    Nomes

    I was curious to try the pearl version as have previously used porefessional primer and loved it. I have normal skin not dry not oily. Glides on smoothly but adds an extra glow. Foundation applies well over the top and stays put without becoming oily. Will definately be using this from now on.
  52. Amazing!!

    Kate

    I received a sample of this with my Adore order and I was amazed at the immediate results. I have large and noticeable pores both on my nose and chin and they were minimized instantly. Works just like the original but adds a dewy glow.
  53. Good

    Y

    This is as good as the original porefessional it just gives a bit more of a glowy finish than the very matte porefessional. Really minimizes my pores and looks great.
  54. My favourite everyday primer

    Cindy

    Such a lovely primer ! It's great for everyday use, perfect balance to brighting up your complexion !
  55. Benefit The POREfessional Pearl Primer

    Lily

    My always have to get! I will apply it before applying my make up so to ensure my skin is poreless. It really smoothens out my skin and cover up my pores. Absolutely love it!
  56. Nice texture but not my holy grail.

    Emma C

    I have oily/combo skin so love a pore-blurring primer, but this one didn't turn out to be my holy grail. The texture is exactly as I like - silicone-y yet mattifying and pore-filling. But I found the slightly pink tint just highlighted the pink tones already existing in my skin, and the pearly/brightening effect was too subtle to have any impact beneath my tinted moisturiser or foundation.
  57. Great

    Sarah

    This primer covers my pores and provides a great base for my makeup. It also gives my skin a nice glow.
  58. Glowy

    Jayde

    This primer makes your skin look really glowy while minimizing the appearance of pores!!
  59. Clumpy

    Libby

    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.
  60. I like the original more

    I thought I would love it when it came out but I prefered the original one. This one clogged my pores and doesn’t

  61. t zone

    emily-rose

    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
  62. Brilliant for the T Zone!

    Lauren

    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.
  63. Cute shimmery version of the original

    shan

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

    Nadine

    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.
  65. Great

    S

    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.
  66. Great

    Stef

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

    Amy

    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 !
  68. Works

    Stephanie

    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.
  69. Love Love Love

    MB

    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.

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

    Paris

    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 depen...

  72. good but not long lasting

    Abbie

    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.
  73. Great

    M

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

    Mad

    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
  75. Suits me

    Tennille

    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
  76. not cruelty free

It fills in and smooths your pores amazingly whilst still leaving the skin w...

  78. Best primer I have tried so far

    Nana

    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.
  79. Small pores, healthy glow

    Jenna

    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!
  80. Lit from within glow

    Alex

    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 :)
  81. Clogs pores and doesn't illuminate

    Shontay13

    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 ou...

  82. 1 star less than real rating as benefit is not cruelty free :(

    R

    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
  83. Great for dry skin

    TIffany

    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.
  84. Glowing Review

    Laura

    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
  85. Good

    Nell

    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.
  86. A good prime

    Megan

    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.
  87. Disappointing as predicted

    Esther

    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 ...

    Prue

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

    Leilah

    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.
  91. Love this primer

    Sarah

    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 !

    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!
