Benefit The POREfessional

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 found this product hard to blend with my skin tone. I did not like the texture or the smell. This product is not for me.

Meh.

This product is alright, though I felt like it clogged my pores much more than using nothing. Not too fond of it and will not buy.

Not For Me

I typically love all things Benefit so I was super excited to try this product. Unfortunatly for me it made my skin break out like a teenage girl going through puberty. I wouldn't characterize my skin as super sensative but it certainly is becoming more and more sensitive as I get older. People with sensative skin, beware!

Not a fan..

When I put it on it feels like granulated sand and is very thick and very heavy. To gritty for me.

Didn't work for me

This really didn't blend into my skin. It just sat ontop and made my makeup come of faster. I don't like using it on top because it starts to look cakey.
Overall not a great product, at least for me.

No perceivable difference

I received a sample of this when I bought another Benefit fullsized product, and I can't say that I felt like I saw any perceivable difference when I applied it. Granted, my pores don't feel very big, but all the same: didn't seems to actually do much.

not the one for me

I have mature skin and still have those pesky large pores. They are less likely to be accompanied by blackheads or pimples, but they are empty HOLES, I tell ya. They are particularly large on my nose - which is also on the large size so there is a fair amount of skin for POREfessional to do its professional best with. Just did not work - makeup was in dots in no time (gathering in pores.) I love most of Benefits product line but will skip this one in the future. Two Faced primer works better and the Philosophy ones work the best for my skin. I did like the feel of this product and a little went a long way.

NOT in love

I have always heard people ranting and raving over this so I bought it... was very disappointed. I don't know if I just got a bad tube or if this is how it is, it seems kinda dry and leaves creases from beginning to end!
