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.

I'm in the minority..

I know everyone is crazy about this product, but I'm not a fan. I should've prefaced that by saying that I don't use either foundations or primers. I did give it a chance, though, and I felt like it dried my skin. Just not for me.

I don't think my pores are very big, so maybe that's why I didn't see a noticeable difference in them? But I also think it made my face feel oily and it smelled terrible. I'm also very fair skinned so I felt like the color of the product was too dark for me. I was surprised that it wasn't clear or white colored.

Didn't see any results for less noticeable pores after multiple uses. What I did notice was the areas I applied it got way more oily.

Eh.

Does a good job covering pores, but it dries my skin out and is an ok primer at best. Overall, I'm definitely not on the bandwagon.

Hide the Pores!
Sampled

I am big on trying to use effective products to overall hide my pores. I don't think I really found this product overall useful.

Nice Pore Filler

I have used multiple pore fillers over the years, and this had a nice, smooth consistency, and went on the skin nicely.

Meh

This primer is very underwhelming. It wears like a cheap drug store product. Don't hate it, but not my fav.

I cannot stop getting these as a sample!

Seriously! Birchbox, sephora, random lady on the street, i keep getting this thing! When I first tried it, I didn't really know how to use it, and gosh it felt like airy slime so I hated it.

Now I realize you gotta use it either as a primer, above make up, or touch up, but you have to use it in conjunction with another moisturizer, shortly before after. It does help with the appearance pores, but still it's a cover up, not a long term solution. If you really want to minimize pores, invest in some serious skin care.

Not a huge fan, but I probably have enough to last me a year so whatever.

Benefit The POREfessional Face Primer

Benefit The POREfessional Face Primer is not a must for me. I don't like wearing foundations or primers unless they are light and actually work well enough to see a difference. I didn't see that much of an improvement and probably wouldn't ever wear it.
