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.

pore-fection!
Sampled

The advent of these pore-blurring/shrinking primers has been a very, very good thing for me, in fact I do believe this type of product is my absolute most-loved cosmetic innovation of the last few years! I never tire of watching how my skin instantly becomes...blurry. I do not have very good skin-blotchy and patchy and breakouty. Items like Porefessional make me feel and look like i DO have good skin. this is one of the few things that lives up to its hype. Hoorah! I have gotten several different samples of similar products in the last year or so and I haven't yet narrowed down a fave-this one's a contender though!

I absolutely love this stuff. I bought it two years ago for my wedding. It evens everything out and makes it easier to put foundation on, or looks great just by itsself.

mediocre

I plan to keep trying my sample, but so far not overly impressed. Wasn't anything that stood out I didn't like, but I've tried another that I like better.

Great product, but a little thick

I really enjoy using the porefessional product, but it sometimes makes my makeup look cakey after applying foundation or powder on top

Nice Primer
Sampled

I usually use liquid foundation- but I tried this with my powder foundation and it worked great. I don't usually like to have too many steps in the morning and my skin can get oily- but worked great with powder.

Instant eye lift!

This product really does what it says. I typically don't use a eyelash curler because I never do it correctly. This product eliminates the need for a curler and actually gives better results.

This Works

I really like this. It's a make-up that helps hide my large pores and results in a smoother, more even skin tone.
