REVIEW: Benefit Cosmetics the POREfessional Face Primer

The POREfessional is a primer that reduces the appearance of pores. It gives you smoother, softer skin. This product is suitable for use under or over makeup. Benefit Cosmetics released this primer as a balm. I bought this product after searching for a primer to wear under my makeup.

The Packaging

This primer comes in a travel-friendly package. The primer takes up little space in a makeup bag or purse. The tube-format allows control over the amount of product used.

The Primer

The product is non-greasy, and appears translucent when blended into the skin. Once applied to the skin, it blurs the appearance of imperfections. The balm dries to a matte finish.


The POREfessional face primer is a part of Benefit’s The POREfessional line. It is available in two formats: travel-sized and full-sized. The travel-sized primer retails for $13 (7 ml). The larger sized primer retails for $39 (1 o.z.)

  1. I used to use it, and I remember I really liked it BUT I needed something with SPF.

    I use the Cotz now and it’s super similar (for a fraction of the price of the Porefessional). Great review!
