Birchbox Breakdown

Of all the beauty minefields out there, visible pores are one of the trickiest to dodge. Foundation alone doesn’t do the trick, which is why we turn to this translucent balm to shrink our pores. We can use it as a primer in the mornings or as a touch-up treatment throughout the day. Perfect t-zone, here we come.

How it Works

The silky, oil-free formula diffuses pores and fine lines for an “airbrushed” finish. It goes on sheer, leaving skin even and smooth. Don’t we all love instant gratification?

How to Use

As a primer, apply a fine layer on clean or moisturized skin, starting from the center of your face and working outwards. Pat to blend. Feel free to use for midday touch-ups too — just dab a pea-size amount over your makeup and blend.

Pricey

I like this product and this brand but I believe that there are other more minimizers available that are just as effective (if not more) for a much better price.

Amazing

I love this product and use it every single day. The coverage is lightweight and I can't tell it's on my face. It doesn't clump up under my make up and really makes a huge difference in make up coverage. Additionally, it's not causing my pores to clog up and I'm not breaking out, which is HUGE for me. Usually all other primers cause acne eruption, but not this one. I'm in love.

It's POREfect!

I love POREfessional! I always wear it under my powder/ foundation to cover up the little pores on my cheeks and nose and the fine lines under my eyes and on my forehead. I honestly think it helps to fill them in and make them less noticeable, especially the pores. It has a luxuriously creamy texture that makes it feel simply amazing to apply. It's a favorite in my kit of tricks!

Works

The is a great product to mask pores and even feels like a great mattifying primer before powder as well. It blends in with my skin tone perfectly. The only thing downside... it doesn't help correct pores, only hides them.

Really like the smoothness of your skin after you put it on.
Nice color. Is it worth the price? Not sure as the full sized tube is pretty small

Game Changer!
Purchased

I can't believe it took me so long to try this product.. wow... what a difference it makes! Totally in love and will forever be loyal to this product. Pores almost go away and make for such a great base prior to foundation.

Age Remover- Removes Fine Lines

In addition to hiding pores, this handy product fills in lines on my forehead, around my eyes, and smile lines. A little goes a long way.

Not sure

I'm not sure about this one. the potential was there, it was smooth, didn't irritate my skin, smoothed everything out...but it didn't have much staying power for me. I heavily moisturize my face - especially in the winter - so I'm constantly looking for a solid primer. But I felt like this one just slid off after a while. But it did feel super luxurious.

Received my free sample a couple of days ago and I am in love. It really does make pores disappear. Definitely buying it.

Its ok

I got this as a sample with my full size order, and was a little disappointed in it. I thought it would drastically hide my large pores, but i didn't notice a huge difference. They do recommend dabbing it on as opposed to rubbing it in. I may have rubbed it in to much and didn't get the results I was looking for. probably won't purchase the full size.
