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.

can clump on skin
Sampled

i love the idea of this product, but I find it very difficult to apply it evenly and it can clump when I'm trying to smooth it.

Take it or leave it
Sampled

I have yet to find that perfect under make-up product that primes, and unfortunately this isn't it either. I LOVE the texture and the scent is nice, but it made my make-up look almost clumpy in a way it never has before. I'll keep experimenting until the sample is through, but I'm afraid that will be the end of my relationship with this particular product.

Eh.

This stuff just doesn't live up to they hype for me. I own it and have used it but see no noticeable difference.

Good Product if you need pore treatment
Sampled

This product was good. I liked how it worked and definitely enjoyed using it. I would not likely buy this product because I don't usually need pore treatments and I don't need to add more to my already lengthy beauty regime.

Good Product
Sampled

Luckily for me, I don't have a problem with large pores so even though I used the sample, it wasn't a need for me. However, the sample was a good enough size that I could make an informed decision if did have a need for it.

Smaller pores are always good
Sampled

I have only used this product a couple of times now under my makeup, so it may take a bit longer for me to actually see the effects of it. I am really excited to see if my pores appear any smaller though!

didn't see a difference
Sampled

I really don't have large pores but I did try this product on my nose pores which are larger than the rest of my face and I didn't see a difference.

This would fill a specific need
Sampled

My skin needs moisture, not pore minimizing, but I do find that products from Benefit are very popular. It makes me want to try other products from their line.

Smashbox did it first.
Sampled

OK, not great. Smashbox did it years ago with a no shine formula.
