Benefit ‘The POREfessional’ is a balm formulated to reduce the size of pores. This balm is oil-free, lightweight, and translucent and can be applied over or under makeup. Benefit recommends patting it over your t-zone and lightly blending it.
The POREfessional contains a mixture of silicone's which help to fill in pores and give your skin a beautiful silky finish. My pores aren’t that large to begin with, but this product does make them appear even smaller and makes my t-zone look smoother and softer, as well the POREfessional mattifies any area of my face in which it is applied. At first, this little guy really helps to perfect my t-zone, but about 3 hours into the day I find that I need to reapply. My face gets oily throughout the day, and it seems like the oil just melts away the product and its effects. I feel like it would be better suited for someone with normal-dry skin and less so for people with oily skin.
The packaging on this, like all benefit products, is gorgeous! It’s a squeeze tube so you’ll be able to get every little bit of product out of the tube, and there is .75 fl. Oz. of product in each tube. This product retails for $28 US and $34 CND.

I recently noticed that the areas where I apply this primer have been breaking me out, so I’m going to take a little break from the POREfessional for now and see if my break outs go away.
In conclusion, this is a pretty good primer but it definitely doesn’t deserve Holy Grail status in my opinion.
