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.

Doesn't work for me

I don't get why this seems to be everyone else's holy grail and for some reason doesn't work for me at all. I have fairly large pores and VERY oily skin, and I wanted to try this after I heard so many people raving about it. I've tried it about 5 times now with different products over it and it makes my makeup look extremely cakey and separated, and I find that I get oily even earlier than usual with this.

Disappointment
Sampled

I had heard so much about this product and could not wait to try it. I know many people who love it and was disappointed when it did not work for me. It made my pores more apparent than ever. Not sure why, but it did not work for me at all whatsoever.

This is a good product I just don't use it. But it is great if you do.

Caused break out
Sampled

This product gives me zits it clogs my pores. This is the third time I've use this product after receiving a sample of it in my Birchbox this time, and it again clogged the pores on my tzone and gave me abnormally large cystic pimples. I will never use this product again, throwing it away. I have oily skin with large pores and am prone to break outs anytime I use a product like this. It might work well for others but not my skin.

My skin is dry and dull and this just makes my face look really matte. I'm sure it's great for those with oily skin and bigger pores. It just made me look too airbrushed.

I never have, nor will I ever use a primer. I haven't even tried it. I gave it to my friend. She hasn't tried it either. It's a cute package.... I'll give it that!

Not all that I hoped it would be

this product feels soft, but doesnt seem to make much difference when adding makeup. Other products i have i can really tell that its on my skin and hold on my makeup. this product is almost too light.
