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.

The product is nice but there wasn't a noticeable difference in pore size.

POREfessional Review
Sampled

I was so excited to receive this product in this month's Birchbox! I had been hoping for a sample before I went out and bought the real thing because I had heard so many amazing things about this product, but now I am incredibly glad I waited. This product definitely did not live up to it's hype. I feel as though it did nothing to minimize my pores and only left me wanting more.

I was really excited to see that I got this in my box because it's one of my favorite face balm. I really did not like how tiny it was, although I understand that it is a try me product, and didn't like how I was unable to get enough usage out of it. A little disappointing for being one of my favorite products.

face breakouts

I like this product and use it for special occasions. If I use it on a daily basis, my face breaks out. I have heard this from a few friends as well. My skin tends to be oily and I often get blackheads due to large pores. Maybe that is why I break out.

It's okay

I don't see what the hype is with this product. Maybe I need to use it a few more times. It feels nice on my skin but I didn't see any difference in my pores.

Meh.

I used sparingly on my nose, where I have big pores and this product made my face feel dirty. It is oily, creamy, and powder like once dry. It did however hide my pores, which is what the product is supposed to do. It just didn't blend well with my skin color, and made my face feel greasy.

I had received samples of this in the past and wasn't really blown away. Not sure how effective this product is, but I don't really need a product like this anyway.
