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.

Not for me

Not big on this product. It pilled a lot with my makeup. I didn't like the way it felt on my skin.

This lessens the amount of wear that I get from my foundation. VerbosBecomes a geasy mess.

Falls flat for me, doesn't spread on my face! I prefer my Becca Priming filter or Smashbox.

Meh

I didn't see a change in my pores at all after using this and it also makes your skin feel kinda slippery. Literally no change at all. It's hard to figure out what this is supposed to do in the first place.

This just didn't work for me - clogged my pores and caused a breakout. I should have known better with these ingredients, but I like to try all of my samples. Benefit is just an overrated brand for me.

Causes breakouts

I wanted to love this primer but I seem to break out with many benefit products. My oily skin couldn't handle this primer.

Clogs pores

It blocks pores, so your natural oil production on your face is stymied, and this shows up as visible bulging at pores, like when you first start to workout and you get a dewy look on your nose. Not attractive and not good for your skin. Let your own oils do their work. Clogging pores will cause LARGER PORES!

I prefer Phillips Milk of Magnesia ! The best primer you will ever use and helps with pores... plus it's cheap!

Not great
Sampled

This isn't anything special. I don't actually see it reduce the appearance of my pores and I don't like the way it feels on my skin, either.

Not for Oily Skin
Sampled

I know this is very popular primer but I just can't get on board. I have very oily skin with large pores. While the primer does do a nice job of filling in pores and making my skin smooth, I find that it makes my skin much oilier and my makes lasts even fewer hours. The high percentage of dimethicone doesn't interact well with my oily skin. Pass for me.
