This is my first primer ever since the start of my makeup journey! And let me tell you its absolutely the best!! This primer really fills up my pores and it leaves a soft matte finish unlike some primer tht would feels sticky and like they say a little bit goes a long way its true I had try to get the mini one and it last me for about a year!! Although it may be a bit pricey but its a great invest plus you just need a lil tiny bits of it!!! Highly recommend to try it out ASAP!!!!
It's not the usual silicone-y feeling primer, it feels rather matte and blends in with the skin really well! Of all the primers I have used (from drug store to high end), this is probably the winner of them all. It is a bit pricey for me, but the quality is really good! Keeps your face matte for the whole day without the sticky feeling of some primers. You can even wear this alone cause it actually hides the pores and fine lines really well. Once you apply a layer of this on your face, you'll see the difference. Also, it doesn't affect the application of your other makeup and it helps them to stay on as well :)
to say this pore filler is legendary would be a colossal understatement!!! i've always wondered why my foundation looked so bad all the time (i was so convinced i just had a madly uneven skin texture) but ever since i started using this, my whole world has turned 180 degrees. using this under foundation really makes your complexion look positively airbrushed and porcelain-like. it's very silicon-ey in texture but blends like an absolute dreaaaam. although the product is beige in colour, it blends almost transparently and adds a gentle matte glow to the skin. not to mention it dries REALLY fast. it doesn't help much in terms of oil control, but i suppose that's why benefit created the 'matte rescue', which you're supposed to layer underneath the porefessional. i'm still on the fence as to whether i'd repurchase this because although it's pricey, it can really last you a long time since a lil goes a long way with this product. seems like a worthy investment but agh i just can't decide! i've also used the ***** collection pore and fine line filler, which is almost identical to the porefessional, but it's a little thicker in consistency and a little more difficult to apply. nothing really comes close to the porefessional!!! this product really benefits me in so many ways ha ha ha ha OK I'LL STOP
Using it as a primer definitely helps me put on foundation TEN times better. Foundation goes on top of this product like a charm, I've tried the Porefessional with multiple foundation brands including Chanel and Milani. It really mattifies but DOES NOT DRY IT OUT. Immediately you can tell that this product hides your pores and smoothes out your skin, priming it perfectly to layer on more makeup.
I've tried multiple pore minimizing and regular primer and this is my absolute favorite over all of the Smashbox primers.
For those skeptical of the small size, don't be fooled because you only need a TEENY TINY amount for every use and it does last awhile. It might be pricey but it definitely works and goes a long way.
MY FAVORITE PART: the scent, oh my god. It smells amazing, it's slightly lemony and refreshing and does not smell like gel or super heavy fragrance. The smell compliments the fact that the product feels so lightweight on your skin and I love that.
i bought this from the store during the sale and i bought the biggest size because the girl at the store recommended it and says it will help protect my skin as dust and bacteria dont enter my pores when i have a primer on. i used this and it really does make my pores appear smaller. it is very smooth and silky when i apply this on my skin. i only use it on areas where larger pores are more visible around my cheeks, nose and a little on the forehead between my eyebrows. i apply this my pressing it into my skin and i only use a little product to avoid it from balling up. it is a nice primer and i really like it. my foundation applied nicely and i like how smooth my skin looks after applying this.
