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.

Noticed no difference

Maybe I don't have big pores, but I didn't notice ANY difference when I used this product. I tried it both under and over my makeup, and both times, my appearance was unchanged. Not worth it!

I am not a BeneFit fan, but in particular this product makes my face feel very greasy.

Not for me

I am a busy mom. To me this is just an extra step. I need to get ready quick. I have no time for extra things that I do not need.

Sensitive skin users beware. I've used this product before I received this sample and I broke out into hives. I wanted to be excited about this brand but I just can't be. It fell short when I tried different things and broke out into hives. I only break out when a product has a lot of chemicals to it. Not good!

I have sebaceous filaments on my nose, the porefessional broke me out :(
Sampled

My t-zone is usually oily due to my large pores on my nose. I also have sebaceous filaments. I rarely get any other type of acne on my nose but three days of using the primer in the morning gave me 4 small pimples. Benefit's website states, "Benefit does not test for or claim that our products are hypo-allergenic (least likely to cause an allergic reaction) or non-comedogenic (does not cause pimples & blackheads)." Obviously I will not be purchasing the full size.

I love products from Benefit, but this is one I don't need/use.

Dissapointed
Sampled

I don't have a problem with my pores, so I was super disappointed to receive this in my box. Not to mention I've already tried and owned this and thought it was kind of useless.

Not a fave

I got this thinking it would be great based on all the great things people said about it but unfortunately it got all gummy on my face and balled up in a very unflattering way.
