I've tried almost every primer out there--Becca, Too Faced, Smashbox, Make Up For Ever, Lorac, Japonesque, and more! Everything that was recommended for oily skin, I would try and nothing ever lived up to the hype. I thought I was destined to have an oily face forever. Normally I apply and, no matter what I tried, only about 1-2 hours later my makeup becomes absorbed by the oil on my face and I'm super shiny and look like I don't have any makeup on. It was so frustrating! NOT THE CASE WITH THIS PRIMER! I got a sample of this and was not expecting much, especially since I'm not a huge Benefit fan, but I was SO IMPRESSED! This is a dream come true. It applies easily and evenly, very smooth, not sticky or oily, it's essentially colorless, has a light and pleasant scent, and it holds onto my makeup for 8 hours. 8 FULL HOURS! That is unheard of with my skin. It's beautifully mattifying and my makeup goes on and stays on evenly. No patchiness or blotchiness! It makes my makeup apply really natural and flawless. I sometimes still need a little blotting on my forehead but overall this primer is phenomenal. It really holds onto the makeup well. I think if you have dry skin, this formula could be too drying for you but if you've got oily skin like I do, I would highly suggest trying this out! It hasn't caused me a single breakout or any other adverse reaction. This creates a perfect canvas for your makeup, and has now been incorporated into my daily routine. I'm SO GLAD I found this!!! I can't talk this primer up enough!

Awesome for large pores, oily skin, and keeping makeup fresh all day. I'm a 35 yr old woman with a history of bad acne and severely oily skin combined with dry skin. My acne and scars are gone but I was left with huge pores all over my face. My skin is so oily that 2 hours after applying makeup it's all gone. I had given up on finding a product to hide my pores and I tried a sample of this when I was looking for yet another primer that would make my makeup stay put and help reduce shine from excessive oil. Porefessional went above and beyond my expectations. It instantly takes years off my face, it hides my pores better than anything else and stops my skin from getting oily (I used to blot oil like every hour and now I may have to blot once a day). It keeps my makeup looking fresh all day. This product is my one must have item. I've used it for several yrs now. Most of the time I don't even have to wear foundation b/c this primer alone makes my skin look so smooth and even and hides minor blemishes. I can even use it when my skin is dry n flakey (most products would only enhance the appearance of the dry flakes, this hides it). I rarely even wear foundation anymore and for me that is a huge deal. With my skin I would've never dreamed I could leave the house without foundation. Now for my daily makeup I just use Porefessional and then finishing powder and my skin looks great. U just have to be sure to wash it off good at night to prevent clogged pores. I purchase this in the jumbo size every time and using it daily lasts me about 6 months. If this product was $300 a tube I would still buy it and it would be worth every cent.


Compared to other face primers, the ingredients in this product are about as safe as the average product.
