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.

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

Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional Face Primer

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

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!

Pointless Primer
Sampled

I already have this primer and am not a huge fan. I like the brand, but i feel that this primer accentuates dry spots, gets greasy quickly, and makes foundation look crumbly. It may blur pores, but that's about all it does. works for some people, but not for me.

Not my favorite of this box.
Sampled

This product did appear to minimize pores upon application, and went on incredibly silky and smooth, but I didn't feel it made enough of a different co add it to my daily routine, even though I feel I have large pores.
