Benefit Cosmetics has sold over 4 million of The POREfessional since it launched in 2010*, proving that gals around the world are obsessed with smoother-than-smooth skin. But once upon a time, even the Benefit team didn’t know if this primer would live up to its POREtential!

The Best Face Primer

Rachael Darne

After watching many YouTube Beauty Guru’s recommend this product, I decided to give it a try. I first purchased The Porefessional Mini Primer (R165.00) before buying the full sized tube (R445.00) for 22ml. The texture of this primer is velvety smooth, and it has a slight fragrance that I didn’t find to be too strong. This primer effortlessly disguises pores and smooths out fine lines around the eyes. It gives the face an airbrushed appearance and dries down to a semi-matte finish. This primer is translucent so everyone can use it, and it does a great job at keeping my oil at bay. A little does go a long way so one tube should last you a long time – in conclusion, the best face primer I’ve ever used and a staple in my makeup routine.

It’s on the pricier side, but it’s definitely one of the best primers I’ve used, I will definitely re-purchase and recommend it to a friend.

Does exactly what it claims to do – reduces pores, keeps skin matte and feels silky on the skin.

I received this item as a gift from my friend and I am blown away by it. I have come to love primers over the past couple of months and a good primer has become more of a must have than a nice to have item for me. The consistency of this primer is different than the other primers I have used as it is brown in colour and it literally disappears weightlessly on my skin.
My skin does not feel caked or sweaty when using this primer. I have found that it does not really mattify my face during the day when I start to sweat in the heat, but it keeps my makeup wonderfully intact the whole day and I love that! this product is worth every cent you spend on it and I will repurchase it without a doubt.

i was really excited when Benefit cosmetics launched in south africa and their porefessional primer is one of the first things that i had to try.It comes in a squeeze tube and is really easy to carry around.The primer is a nude / skin tone color , i found that it has a lightweight texture and when applied to my skin it has a matte finish.It dramatically reduced the appearance of large pores and left my skin feeling flawless.

Loved it

I loved this product from Benefit, it is one of their most popular products. I loved the consistency of this product because it was very creamy with high coverage.My skin is combination skin so it worked perfectly for my skin. This is good when using it on your T zone area, it can work as a primer for the areas applied to. Good buy!
