Pair this pore-zapping balm with Benefit’s eye brightening Ooh La Lift for an all-over radiant complexion.

Benefit Cosmetics

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.

Another Benefits Hit
Sampled

Great product! If you are a fan of Benefits, this will not dissapoint. If this is your first Benefits product, you are going to be hooked. POREfessional goes on silky and blends easily into your skin. Your makeup will stay put all day and the product will minimize your pores. This is a must for every beauty bag.

I Love Benefit Products

I'm a huge fan! I love how smooth my skin feels after use and my foundation glides on. I also think that it makes my makeup last longer throughout the day.

Feels great

This product felt wonderful to smooth on. I sometimes wear it all by itself. Transluscent matte finish. Nice. I only wish it had some SPF...

I really like this particular product, it's not too heavy or greasy feeling. I think I'll end up buying it!

It just doesn't work for me...
Sampled

I don't know if I'm using it properly or if I just can't tell a difference when I use it. I use it over my moisturizer, before I put on makeup. Whether I use it or not, my face and makeup look exactly the same. It just doesn't do anything for me.

I love any product from benefit and this product is no exception. The quality of this brand is unremarkable along with the cute and whimsical packaging- what's not to love?
