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 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.

My pores aren't really large enough to warrant its use. Not really my thing but I enjoy the brand

I don't like products with silica. They feel slimy on your skin. I would definitely try another pore minimizing or primer without silica.

This product did help my makeup go on smoother, but I didn't notice any changes to the size of my pores under my makeup. I was expecting to see a difference in the way my pores looked and I didn't notice anything.

I have been a loyal user to VS Pro Airbrush Primer for the past 2 years, mostly because of the SPF factor, as well as it is cheaper than most. If this had a SPF factor, I may have given it a try.

I think Mac Studio Fix works fine on its own without a primer.

For someone with sensitive, acne-prone skin, a primer is hit or miss, but more miss. I just tried this after a week of getting over a bad reaction to the face/skin oil, and man, my skin, by midday, was clogged with oil. Not a fan.

I like Benefit products but was not impressed with this one. While it is advertised as weightless I definitely felt this on my face and it felt a bit drying. I have dry skin in general so I don't think this was the best product for my skin anyways.

it felt funny when i put it on and after it was on, it felt like it created a barrier on my skin because if i got hot, it created sweat on my nose that beaded up under the product.

This just didn't seem to do much for me. I'd prolly recommend to friends, though. It may work for them.
