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.

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.

It feels nice, and i think maybe there is a slight slight change, but not enough to buy it.

This goes on feeling really light and smooth. The color is good for my skin- but this product doesn’t really provide any coverage it’s more to have a good base to start with. I like it but end up applying more product on top so I don’t use it often as I don’t wear a lot of makeup
