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.

A nice enough primer, I have another brand I use, but it was an effective product.

Close, but no cigar!

The porefessional primer leaves something to be desired for me. I like that there's a bit of an underlying hue to this primer, but it's a little heavy. It doesn't last as long as I would hope and makes me feel like my pores are getting clogged up with gunk with I use this.

No noticeable difference

Everyone seems to love this product, but I just don't get it. I don't see any difference when I use it or when I don't use it. I do like that it's smooth, nongreasy, and smells nice. Just wish it did for me what it seems to do for everyone else.

Pore minimizer

The product feels silky and smooth, but I don't tend to use primers. I also don't have large pores. I like the product and brand but just don't use something like this.

pour not my thing

I received this product and will not be continuing use. I do not have large pours so I am not sure why I received this product. I do like the benefit brand and hope to get more from this brand even though this product was not for me.

I had been dying to try this product for quite some time, and was excited to receive this in my first Birchbox, but after using it today my face immediately broke out. I will say it did lessen my pores slightly, but in my opinion there are better primers out there that do that that won't break me out.

broke me out
Sampled

I'm oily and sensitive and this worked well to smooth my skin out and help my makeup stay on, but it broke me out so I just ended up giving it away

Face Primer POREfessional
Sampled

I think that this product really smoothed out my skin, giving me an even look before putting on my makeup. This, however, is not something that I would work into my daily routine. This is a once a week or going out kind of treatment. Normally during the week or when working I don't put a lot of primer or foundation on my face. So this is an occasional product. But the product from a couple uses is good, and does create an even looking complexion.

Just alright

This product is okay-I wasn't overly impressed with the pore reduction but it did go on as a nice primer.

Great product...for someone with large pores.
Sampled

This is a great product for someone that has large pores. It really smooths things out and works great under makeup. I don't have large pores so I can't truly judge, but I tried the product and liked how it worked for me.
