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.

Didn't work for me

This is one of the most touted product on Birchbox and elsewhere, so I was excited to give it a try. However, it didn't really work for me. It didn't blend into my skintone, and it didn't stay when I put my BB cream on top of it. I wish it worked on me as it did on everybody else.

POREfessional

Kinda confused, I clicked to write a review about POREfessional and the questions are asking me about mascara... I'm reviewing POREfessional though. Did nothing for me, I don't have visible pores to begin with. My skin is very white and sensitive, product does not work for me.

Bummer!

I used it as described on the packaging and noticed nothing! I didn't feel anything besides oil from the product! Big bummer

hello

This is basically a makeup primer that doubles up because it seriously reduces the visibility of pores. Ever since trying it, I don't go a day without putting this on under my makeup.

What exactly is it suppose to do!?

I read the package and looked online but I still don't quite get what this product is suppose to do. I liked the texture but it seems like a moisturizer and I really saw no benefit, unfortunately!

Breaks me out

I have used this product in the past and it breaks me out. Also I dislike the silicone texture.

Ugh this is the worst.

I have purchased this item before and was disappointed to see it was coming in the may 2015 box. It changes the color of my face, so my foundation does not look right when I put it on. Too dramatic of a difference. There was no staying power, and it was just so weird to. It stayed more on my fingers than on my face.

I found this product hard to blend with my skin tone. I did not like the texture or the smell. This product is not for me.

Meh.

This product is alright, though I felt like it clogged my pores much more than using nothing. Not too fond of it and will not buy.
