Benefit The POREfessional

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.

Not my Favorite

I had heard so many great things about this primer and was so excited to try it. It smoothes things out really well, but it doesn't have the longevity of other products. By the end of the day, it makes my face store greasy, which other primers do not do. So won't be adding this to my routine.

Pretty much the same thing as other tints.

This is the same thing and does the same thing as other tints/pore reducers I have used. Nothing really special.

It's ok

It says it minimizes poor size... but is that the look of the pores or does it actually minimize the size? It doesn't say, but I think it just reduces the look of pores. Its an ok product but I'm more for reducing the size of pores so then they don't have to be covered up!

Cannot stand the smell

It smells like roses and gives me headaches. I have tried this several times (actually bought a travel size about six months ago) and I feel it's more effective when I don't wear it under makeup, when I put foundation on top of it, I see every last pore.

Take it or leave it

I can not honestly tell the difference of my skin when I am wearing the pore cream versus when I am not. Perhaps my pores are not large enough that I would. I am not sure. Either way, the product is pleasant in smell and appearance, but not for me.

Good, but not great.

It made my foundation clumpy on my skin and you can see it. I don't think it did what it says it would do.

Didn't Understand The POREfessional

It might be because I'm in my 20's and haven't given much thought to the size of my pores before, or that I didn't apply enough of the product, but I didn't notice much of a difference in pore size/appearance after use. I liked the smell and way it made my skin feel though!

Had High Hopes

I'm not sure what to say about this product. I've heard so many good things about it, but never purchased it because while I do have large-ish pores on my nose, they're not so bad that concealer or BB cream couldn't cover them up. I wasn't wowed by this product. Goes on really smoothly and has a good consistency, but definitely not something I needed.

It's ok.

Not very effective

i do not have a huge problem with concealing my pores but I still do (like any woman) want that flawless matte finish. This product did nothing for me. I didn't notice any difference in the size or shape of my pores.
