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.

Not impressed
Sampled

I wanted to be wowed by this. Unfortunately, it didn't live up to my expectations. It's as if the cream was too thin to fill in my pores.

Meh
Sampled

Not for me. My face felt weird after I applied. Maybe I'm just not used to a primer but I wouldn't purchase this.

Goes on smooth

This product feels silky smooth when applying it to the skin. No complaints about it, its just not something I use on a regular basis.

Okay

I wasn't sure how to use this exactly. So it could be pretty good for other people, just wasn't very relevant to me.

Ok

Doubles as an eyeshadow primer which is pretty cool, but not super effective on the face.

I don't see a difference. I feel like it's clogging up my pores instead. I rather not use it.

Not my favorite primer
Sampled

I thought this primer was just OK. I liked the way it went on (very smooth) but I did notice a whitish residue even though I only used a little bit. It's an ok product which does minimize the look of pores but I probably will not purchase the full size.

Silky formula
Sampled

The formula is great. It's so silky and smooth. I didn't notice a difference in my pores. I thought that this would be a replacement for my BB cream, but it was not. I don't think I would buy the full version since I think there are other, better alternatives for me.

Smoothes
Sampled

This product definitely smoothed out my pores before applying foundation. I don't use it everyday but it's a nice touch now and then!
