Benefit 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.

good not great

This product seems to get too much hype imo. I use it as a primer which i know is not how it is advertised, however i dont feel it does the job of "pore minimizing" well enough to justify its price. I will use it & expect to recieve it by some other package/value set because i enjoy the brand, and they clearly are excited about it.

Confused?

I went to review the porefessional but I was asked about some mascara that I didn't receive in this months box. Anyways, the pore filler was okay. It looked great before makeup but it made my makeup cakey after I put it on.

Not entirely sure

I don't usually use products like this, so when I got it in my monthly box, I figured I'd give it a try. I'm not entirely sure if I really liked it or not...maybe I'm just not used to it?

Doesn't Play Well With Others

First, let me say that I love Benefit cosmetics. I use a ton of them. But I have never been a pore-fessional fan. It does the job, but as soon as I use another product with it, it seems like one of them ends up creasing or pilling away. Also, it seems like I get this sample every time I buy something from Benefit.

Makes a good primer

This seems to work well as a make up primer. Seems to work alright without make up.

3rd or 4th time

I've receive this sample a few times now and it just doesn't work on my skin. My makeup just slides right off. I keep giving these samples away.

OK

I wasn't able to notice any obvious change from this product.

Eh

I don't see any results from this pore product. Not my favorite birch box sample...

Isn't effective to me

This product isn't very effective because it doesn't do much for my skin. I would not repurchase this product.

It's ok

You use small amounts of this product which is nice, but it didn't last as long as I liked. For about the first 3 hours my pores looked minimized just like the product says, but after that it makes my skin oily and the effectiveness wears off.
