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.

Not for me

This is ok, did not see much coverage. I do not have big pores so maybe just not needed.

Too expensive
Sampled

I have gotten this product in my birchbox before and while I think it work okay, it is just not worth it for me. $30 for something that doesn't have the best consistency....I also don't think it really does anything to my face.

Works well, but not the bests
Sampled

I used to swear by this product but I found something better that lasts much longer on my oily skin. The only improvement I would make is to create a version that would last longer in oily skin.

Eh, not for me.

I've received this sample several times. I love the brand but prefer veil from hourglass. That's the best primer ever for keeping oil at bay and blurring my pores. This doesn't help me with my combo skin.

Smoothed skin

Porefessional is a good product. I have dry skin and have to moisturizer a ton before I use this product. I think if my skin weren't as dry I would like the product more.

I'm not sure if it as operator error or something else- it didn't do well for me.

Nice product; does what it's supposed to ... I just don't like that many layers on my face.

Okay but tends to cause breakouts
Sampled

I like the smooth texture it leaves my skin but I tend to get breakouts after using this product. I use when going out to longer events to makeup lasts longer.
