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.

too oily
Sampled

Initially, the product is great. Goes on smooth and served its purpose. My skin just turned too oily after a few hours, made my T zone look too shiny.

Disappointed
Sampled

I was excited to try this Benefits product. I feel I have noticed pores but I didn't see a difference when I used the product.

Way overrated primer
Sampled

This primer made my skin break out more. Plus, each time I wore it my foundation seriously looked worse at the end of the day than the beginning. I have normal to dry skin and this primer made it look oily and my foundation sort of separated on top of the primer, which normally doesn't happen. This has a very silicone feel to it, but no scent which is a plus. Overall I was very disappointed with this primer.

Not for me

I didn't feel like this did anything more for my skin than my foundation already did.

Works

Minimizes pore size instantly, without being overly thick and greasy.

Just ok

I tried this as a sample in my March box. It did the job for a little while but I looked shiny by mid day. I have combination skin but not overly ouly.

I'll pass
Sampled

I didn't care for this primer at all. I passed it along to my daughter. I don't like the consistency or the feel of it on my skin. It's too slick or silky feeling. The primer is light weight which I love, but I didn't see any noticeable difference in my skin after my makeup was complete compared to not using a primer at all.

Effective, but not magical
Sampled

I am not much of a primer user in general so I don't have a lot to compare this product to. In general I find primers too heavy, I don't like to build up a lot of product on my skin. I couldn't tell much of a difference in the look of my skin after application of this one. But, to be fair, I do have fairly textured skin so maybe it would be better on someone with already smallish pores.

facial primer

I liked this product. It felt extremely smooth on the skin. However, it seemed to clog up my pores and leave my oily nose with a bumpy finish.
