Layer this pore-zapping balm under Benefit’s Big Easy for a shine-free, airbrushed finish.

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 to Use

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

The POREfessional is one of my FAVORITE products. It gives your skin a nice clean matte texture and really makes your pores disappear. I like that it is subtle and you can't see the color on your face- it simply improves the texture.

cant see a difference

I really want to love this product but I honestly can't tell a difference when I have it on and when I do not. Maybe I'm not applying enough of the product though as I have just the sample tube.

It's not you, it's me

I'm kind of a fussy person when it comes to products. i don't want to have to use a lot or take a lot of time to get ready.

You really need to wait a few minutes to let this product set and dry before you put anything on top if it (moisturizer or primer or foundation)

I also didn't really see a difference in pore size appearance.

Totally hides pores!

I have no idea how this stuff works, but it totally does! When I wear this the pores on and around my nose are completely invisible for hours! I can use it below makeup as a primer, or over makeup as a touch up throughout the day. Great product.

Great primer!
Purchased

This made my skin super soft and made my skin look really nice. It has a bit of a perfume-like smell, but it's not overwhelming. Definitely enjoying this primer!

I was skeptical that a product could hide my pores and not look like I was wearing a thick pancake of makeup. Well this blew me out of the water, just a dab of the balm and smoothing it over my face made my visible pores disappear. It was light weight and worked great!

Perfectly Poreless

I loved how soft this product was, but it didn't make my skin greasy. Really minimized my pores and lasted throughout the day. Love this product!

One of my favorite products
Purchased

I use this every time I wear make up. I prefer this to any other type of primer. It gives my face a smooth start before foundation and it doesn't feel heavy on my skin.
