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.

Don't get the hype
Sampled

I had really high hopes for this product but felt it left my skin oilier rather than less oily. Will keep trying to see if that changes, but disappointed so far.

So-so
Sampled

Although I love the texture and the softness when applied to the skin, I just have never been a fan of this product. It's not bad by any means, it just is not a product I like for myself.

I don't really know if it works. The sample is very small and you can only use it a few times. I couldn't really tell the difference in pore size.

Nice idea
Sampled

Love this brand and I like the idea, but it didn't seem like it was thick enough coverage for me.

The packaging was nice
Sampled

This product would be good if you wear concealer or cover-up. This would be a good first coat to go under make-up. It seemed a little oily and left my skin tone uneven BUT it did seem to immediately 'cover up' the pores.

Not for me

It's okay as a primer, but I didn't see a big difference with the texture of my skin and pores.

My pores didn't look different
Sampled

I didn't notice a difference at all in the look of my pores after applying this and my usual foundation. I didn't notice a difference in the fine lines under my eyes, either. That being said, it did glide on smoothly and it made my foundation glide on smoother than usual. I probably wouldn't buy this just for that, though.

Not really worth it...
Sampled

I don't have super obvious pores, but this really is just a liquid powder, in my opinion. It doesn't really feel like it's doing anything when it goes on. Perhaps it would work for someone with larger pores?

Another primer

I liked this primer, but ultimately I need something more long wearing.
