      I really like this primer for my T-zone. It is really light weight and helps minimize the look of my pores. I also like that it doesn't make my foundation look cakey.

        I love this so much! My face is brighter after using it and I prefer this over the original poreless primer. I am going to try the tarte primer because I've heard great things about that too, but this primer is my #1 so far.

          This product seemed to be the exact same as the original porefessional to me. I didn't notice any luminization or help for dullness. If anything, I felt it made my skin look like it had a white cast. I wouldn't recommend. Just get the original.

          Comments about Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional: Pearl Primer:

          I really wanted to love this product, as I really love the original pore-fessional, but I have pretty bad results when applying foundation on top of this primer. The foundation creases and slides around when I use this particular primer. Maybe I'm using it incorrectly somehow, but I do not get the same effect when I use another primer with the same foundation.

            I was super excited to try this cause I love the original porefessional. I loved the look of this cause it's supposed to brighten. It doesn't brighten at all! It leaves an incredibly weird pinky-grey cast on my face which made me look sick. And I feel like it's a lot thicker than the original too! Wanted to like it but sadly didn't!

            I am a fair skinned redhead age 48. I don't have large pores. I don't wear foundation. I received a sample in my birchbox and I love this. I use it just to even out my skin tone. It does and makes my skin look smooth. Perfect. I wear just it. Helps cover a few fine lines as well. I will be ordering full size.

              I love Benefit products! At first I loved this primer, but after one use I began to break out in hives. I really hope this doesn't happen to anyone else, but I have somewhat sensitive skin... much more sensitive than I thought.

                I am a make up artist so i have tried out so many primers and so far this one is my new favorite! Its creamier than the original porefessional so my skill does not feel as dull and tight after i apply it. no matter what foundation I use this primer has kept my skin looking hydrated and feeling amazing. I would recommend to anyone!

                Comments about Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional: Pearl Primer:

                I got this primer as a sample and I'll definitely invest in the full size. It magically illuminates the skin but it actually does blur pores so your face looks essentially flawless, and it really does a great job priming for foundation.

                  Does Benefit test on animals?
                  Asked on 12/19/2017 by Reyna from Illinois

                    A:

                    Benefit does not test our products on animals. Since 1989, the Perfumes & Cosmetics companies of LVMH group (including Benefit Cosmetics) have not performed any tests on animals for our products - this was implemented long before the 2013 official ban set by the European Union. We are deeply committed to the elimination of animal testing. We're playing a leading role in developing alternative methods through our support of the "Fund for Alternatives to Animal Testing" in the United States. We also actively participate in validation studies of new alternative tests in the framework of the European cosmetics association, Cosmetics Europe. We are one of only a few companies to have invested in creating our own internal department to test raw materials and ingredients to further ensure the quality of our products and the satisfaction of our customers, which is our top priority. As a result, all Benefit products undergo very strict tolerance tests using non-animal methods during the development of each product to ensure quality and safety prior to market. Some customers expressed concern regarding the situation in China. Our products are made in Europe and for imported cosmetics, the Chinese health authorities order some test on animals: they require companies to make their products available to be tested in state-certified laboratories for registration purposes only, as it is currently their only recognized method to demonstrate product safety. We are hopeful that alternative testing methods will be adopted worldwide and we will see an end to animal testing.
