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 is by far one of the best primer I've ever used! Easy to apply, and really does what it says it would!

I received a sample of Porefessional and the first time I used it, I was hooked! It goes on so smooth, it's tinted, and it doesn't leave your face oily at all. This is a great primer! I use it daily.

With or without makeup, this primer gives a smooth, flawless look. Completely covers my already-small pores and fine lines. How did I live so long without this? Highly recommend! !!

I can't leave the house without this stuff! My pores aren't gigantic, but they are noticeable on my nose (along with a hole from an old nose piercing…..). This product is an absolute must for covering these flaws. 100% recommend. Also, one tube lasts forever!

I run a restaurant, and work long hours, before using this, my makeup would be gone and by the middle of my shift I would look blotchy. After using benefit, wow what a difference, my makeup stays on and only a powder touch up is needed. Great product

This product definitely helped smooth out my skin but seemed a little light on the coverage. I've used other pore perfecting balms that covered a little better.

Must Have

I save this and only use it on special occasions. It just pushes your makeup over the top to perfection. Smooths out every line and pore and your makeup glides on and stays on.

I loved this product! I use it all over my face when I do not want to be in make up. It feels so good on your face. Not drying at all! I will purchase this product!

Great sample in my Birch box this time around. Something I can use, and works to reduce your pores, you can actually see the results! I highly recommend and will use it on going!
