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 the appearance of our pores. The silky, oil-free formula diffuses pores and fine lines for an “airbrushed” finish, and it goes on sheer, leaving skin smoother and more even. 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 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.

This product truly makes my makeup last without looking greasy. My pores are huge no matter what i've tried, so if I can't fix them at least I can mask them!

Amazing primer!!!
Purchased

I was looking for a primer and saw the great reviews in this one so I decided to get it even though it's a bit pricey... I was surprised at how well it worked. I used it mainly on my t-zone, it left my skin really smooth and I didn't really have to use make up...

Deserves to be tried

My sister recommended this product to me (I had been using Smashbox's Photo Finish primer for a few years). This product is AMAZING! By far the best from Benefit. It's incredibly smooth on the face and doesn't give you a greasy feeling. I usually wear under foundation but somedays I wear it alone - it's that good! Makes me feel delicate and clean.

Effective

I like to use this on my T zone after applying makeup. It is mattifying and smoothes the skin. I don't use too much though as I feel like it can cause smudging.
