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.

Makes me oily

I really like how it makes my makeup look right after I put my foundation but then after about 2 hours, makes my skin REALLY oily. I'v owed POREfessional in the past and I thought that I would (for some reason) give it a second chance. My skin is like an oily well already, I don't need POREfessional to add to the problem.

Great Brand

I love this brand, so if I wanted to use a pore minimizer, this is probabally a good choice. I just don't find I want or need a pore minimizer.

Porefessional

I already owned this product before i got it in my box. Not a huge fan. It is not really effective in making my pores appear smaller.

Alright

This is an alright product for me.
If I apply this without any make up, then it does hide my pores and makes my skin feel even and primed. It might be because I tried this with a very drying CC cream (another sample I received) that my pores ended up being accentuated, but I think it also didn't blend well with each other.
I can only say that it doesn't seem to be worth the hype from my experience. I may try this again another time, but it just isn't doing enough for me to be something I'll purchase the full size of or use regularly.

Effective but overpriced

I've gotten this exact same product before in other sub boxes. I love that birch box is giving out higher end samples, but I don't use foundation so this is of little use to me. I guess it works ok, but I don't have much knowledge otherwise

Smooth but not sure...

I had a sample of this from somewhere else and it goes on smooth and feels smooth, but I'm not sure it makes my pores look any smaller.

The POREfessional

I've owned this primer before, and it just doesn't work with my dry skin. It was also a tiny sample!

as expected

I've used this product before - reminds me of Clearasil. But it works, pores look smaller - good feel and smell.
