Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional Face Primer

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.

I've tried to like this. I really have. I love Benefit products, but this one was just a bust. No effect on the look of my skin. Left my usually flawless Smashbox foundation feathered and cakey in places. Boo.

Maybe just me but I don't like primers. Extra step that doesn't do much for me personally

I've used this quite a few times now and it doesn't seem to make a difference. It doesn't help with my pores. It looks the same as it did before applying

I hate primers
Sampled

honestly i hate primers because most of them contain pore clogging ingredients, and the past few boxes ive received had primers in them, one box even came with two primers! i recently wrote a review on my june box saying how i didnt want to receive anymore primers and i still received one in my july box. i really dont want any more primers

I'm sorry but I've had enough of this product. I feel like the company will give a sample to anyone who asks. I received one and gave it a poor review. I feel this is first tinted which is what I don't want in a primer. Than its texture is off it goes on powder like but becomes greasy. I've hiben this given this a try a few try a few times always with the same results. I now can't give this away. I wait, I wish they would quit sending it,

Not for me

I completely disliked this product. I haven't ever tried a primer that I liked so I don't use one! This primer left a residue on my face and when I put on my foundation it didn't go on evenly because it was spreading around the primer residue. I did not like this sample!

If you were to use this alone its fine as a blurring cream. It made it very difficult to apply my liquid foundation. If you have any dry spots on your face don't use this.
