Benefit The POREfessional

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.

I had really, really high hopes for this product and I was sadly disappointed. I don't think it's the product's fault, but rather my insanely oily skin. I think the product would do really well with those with combo skin. I did enjoy the almost air brushed effect it gave, but again, it only lasted an hour before the oil took over. :(

Not for me

Tried this before and just not for me. Did not care for the consistency of product and did not see any results in using it.

Good primer.

This does make my oily skin a bit more matte and goes under foundation very nicely. I noticed a little change in the size of my pores, enough to use on special occasions but not enough for the price point to use everyday.

This product truly makes my makeup last without looking greasy. My pores are huge no matter what i've tried, so if I can't fix them at least I can mask them!

I really wanted to love this

I was really excited to try this product because I had heard so much about it but I was let down. I really wanted to love this product but it just never did anything for me. The smell is nice and it feels wonderfully smooth but I was always left with a residue and my pores have stayed the same. I even bought the large bottle and it's pretty much gone but ... Nothing :(

This product definitely helped smooth out my skin but seemed a little light on the coverage. I've used other pore perfecting balms that covered a little better.

I want sure what to expect from this product and other than making my skin feel silky, I didn't notice that it did anything visually.

Something to be desired
Purchased

I really wanted this to be my end-all for oil control. There's so much hype around it and the reviews are great. I agree that it does a great job of minimizing the appearance of pores. It even blurs light spots and blemishes. I noticed some improved oil control, but no where near what I expected. To avoid being super shiny I use this and set my face with Clinique Stay Matte powder. I keep the Benefit Porefessional Matte Stick (the yellow triangular tube) in purse to take care of the oil slicks that pop up after a few hours. This combination works wonders for me, but the primer on its own is just OK.

I like this product but I don't think it's worth the price. It didn't make as noticeable a difference to me as it would take for me to purchase.

... Giving an average rating since I am really not a good judge of this type of product. Don't use primers or really see what they do!
