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 our pores. 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.

The product applies smoothly and minimizes the appearance of pores very effectually. It creates a luminous appearance.

Love Benefit Products
Sampled

I love Benefit products, and have tried this product in the past, but I have never been able to notice a difference in pore appearance. My make-up does seem to go on smoothly over it, though, so that's a plus.

Nice product
Sampled

I really like products from this line, and I can see how this product could work really well for somebody who was concerned about pore concealing, but at this time I don't really use products like this.

So smooth!
Sampled

Frankly, I wasn't aware of my visible pores until I received this sample (thanks, Birchbox?) but I love how smooth and creamy this product is. It is so light I couldn't feel it and it evens out my complexion in a way that BB creams don't.

Good product
Sampled

This is a good product although horribly overpriced.. I've used drugstore equivalents.. If your looking for a high end product that works amazing I would just spend the extra $10 and splurge on the Dr Brandt pore minimizer/primer rather than this brand.

Good Primer
Sampled

Super excited to finally try this product, although the sample size is very tiny. Very similar consistency to the dr. brandt pores no more, which works on my skin better.

Overall decent performance

To use pat accross skin using a flat foundation brush. Let sit for 3 minutes or so before applying foundation. Lasts all day and really smooths skin.

Shrinks pores?
Sampled

I don't think this product actually shrinks pores but it did cover up small pores a bit better than makeup alone. It glides on and dries to a matte finish. It's worth a try if you are bothered by unsightly pores.

Loved the texture

It went on smoothly and helped not only hide my pores, but also made my acne scars less noticeable.

Cute

Love the cute packaging! Just wish the sample was a bit bigger so I could get more uses to see how well it works!
