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.

Fragrant and greasy
Sampled

This primer is very fragrant and makes my skin feel greasy. I don't like it at all.

Not for me

Product didn't apply or feel as smooth as other primers I've used and for whatever reason it made my face itch.

Not a Fan of Benefit

I tried this product a few years ago and just didn’t care for it. I’m oily and have big pores around my T-Zone. Just didn’t feel it worked. But now I don’t use anything Benefit. I’ve since found out contrary to popular belief, they are NOT cruelty free. That is a absolute must for me.

Is an amazing primer! It fills pores and gives your skin a velvet finish. I used this product for years and it works best on normal to dry skin types. If you’re oily only apply where you need it and only a little bit. The more you use the less it works. I also recommend this primer to those who don’t wear makeup, it evens out the skin beautifully.

An extra layer I don't need
Sampled

I have large pores in my T-Zone so I bought this product prior to Birchbox sending it. I tried applying it under, over, mixed with, waiting for it to sit first. Just never did what it was supposed to do for me. Created a loose layer on top of my skin that smudge my makeup and accentuated my wrinkles and pores even more. I'm not sure if this product is meant for a certain skin type that's already smooth and just wants to have a more polished look or what but it's definitely not meant for people who have or are starting to get fine lines. I bought this product at Ulta and I thought that was supposed to be a good seller. I prefer using a light moisturizer under my makeup, at this stage in life extra layers give me a cracked cake effect lol

Please stop putting these in boxes. Pretty sure every single person who has a monthly beauty subscription has a few of these laying around.

I have always hated poor fillers. I personally feel that it will just stretch the poor and I just hate it.

I can't stand this primer, it does nothing for me. There's way better and cheaper primers out there.
