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 my fave...

I am a little new to the primer world and have yet to find a pore-minimizing primer that I actually like. This one seems to make my face a little dry, so maybe a liquid foundation would fare better. It has a pretty strong smell, but I thought it was pleasant and not overwhelming (especially once applied). Again, maybe others had better results, but this one wasn't for me.

Not for me
Sampled

First, I have oily skin, and I did not use this product with Benefit makeup. With that being said, it seemed like my face was MUCH more oily at the end of the day in comparison to days when I didn't use it.

I'm kind of tired of getting Benefit primers in my monthly box

I was really exited when I received this product, I had heard wonders! For me I didn't notice any difference after using this primer, I personally prefer my nyx pore filler.

Not my favorite Benefit product
Sampled

I'm a Benefit junkie but this is not my favorite. It does provide for a smooth foundation application but I notice nothing regarding pore size and I prefer Smashbox for primer.

Unimpressed

I wanted to love this product as I am a huge fans of the brand. However I don't. I didn't like how the product felt on my skin and it just caused my makeup to be rather cakey when normally it sits perfectly on my skin. Would not recommend.

I Don't Get the Hype
Sampled

I tried this finally after waiting for so long, and I don't understand the hype. I didn't notice a change with any of my pores really, and quite frankly, the consistency was kind of eh for me. It didn't smooth out very easily.

ok...

this product is fine, but it does seem like the kind of thing that doesn't work. Maybe it could work after years of use, but in the short term, my pores did not magically shrink...

porefessional

I honestly did not notice a different in my pores.
I have acne prone skin and I applied it on my chin and my nose (where my pores are most noticeable) and there wasn't a difference. I applied this after my overall face primer and before my bb cream. Everyone else seems to have had good results, but unfortunately I was not one of them.

It is transparent
Sampled

When I saw that this product was tinted, I didn't think I'd like it. It is transparent and feels so silky. I don't have large pores, so I wouldn't normally purchase this.
