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.

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.

Love it!

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.

Great product!

I use this under my foundation and love the effect and staying power. I will also use it in the summer with just concealer.

Love in a tube
Purchased

I was skeptical, but I have to say, I love love love the POREfessional. It has a great smell, fantastic formula and texture, and looks great on my skin on its own or combined with my other Benefit products. Honestly, the smell is the real selling point for me, as I've tried other pore refining products that are similar but not quite as pleasant.

love it

I love this stuff. I got it as a sample with the big easy bb cream purchase. It does what it says it will. It gives a smooth, but oil free finish. I want to try as many benefit products as I can.

I've never really used a base before I applied my foundation but acfter using a sample of this I will never go without. This product goes on silky smooth and leaves my skin super soft and flawless. The smell is amazing too. Highly recommend.

Daughter swears by it

I do not have a pore issue but my daughter can't live without this stuff. It really does make her skin look amazing!
She loves the texture, and says it is the best product of its kind and she has tried all of them. She has even tried other newer products that came out after and always says this is THE ONE.
