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.

Just ok

I didn't really see a difference in my pores after using this product twice.
I was not impressed and would not pay for this product. It also felt sticky and floppy.

Great brand

I have used this a few times, goes on smooth and feels light on skin. Definitely lives up to the hype

Good product but not one i would use regularly

This product goes on smooth and visibly reduces the appearance of pores however the sample was small and I wish I would have had more. This product is not something I would use regularly because I don't have large pores but I would recommend it to someone who does.

I've tried this primer before receiving it in my box this month, and it doesn't really do anything special for me. not my holy grail primer, but other people love it to death

Makes me oily

I really like how it makes my makeup look right after I put my foundation but then after about 2 hours, makes my skin REALLY oily. I'v owed POREfessional in the past and I thought that I would (for some reason) give it a second chance. My skin is like an oily well already, I don't need POREfessional to add to the problem.

Great Brand

I love this brand, so if I wanted to use a pore minimizer, this is probabally a good choice. I just don't find I want or need a pore minimizer.

Porefessional

I already owned this product before i got it in my box. Not a huge fan. It is not really effective in making my pores appear smaller.

Alright

This is an alright product for me.
If I apply this without any make up, then it does hide my pores and makes my skin feel even and primed. It might be because I tried this with a very drying CC cream (another sample I received) that my pores ended up being accentuated, but I think it also didn't blend well with each other.
I can only say that it doesn't seem to be worth the hype from my experience. I may try this again another time, but it just isn't doing enough for me to be something I'll purchase the full size of or use regularly.

Effective but overpriced

I've gotten this exact same product before in other sub boxes. I love that birch box is giving out higher end samples, but I don't use foundation so this is of little use to me. I guess it works ok, but I don't have much knowledge otherwise
