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 our pores. 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.

Sadly Disappointed

I was really looking forward to trying this product, because I really respect a lot of what Benefit offers. Sadly, I don't notice any textural difference in my skin when wearing this vs. my regular primer, and Porefessional is noticeably less effective an maintaining my make-up throughout the day.

didn't do it for me

I was looking forward to trying this product- I have tried similar ones in the past and they have had little effect. Unfortunately this product didn't last very long, it really just made my face rather greasy which accentuates pores even further.

Dissapointing

I had high hopes for this product, but it didn't reduce make my pores look any smaller. The texture was nice, but it just wasn't effective.

Not So Porefect
Sampled

I love a good primer, but some just don't live up to my desire for something that leaves my skin with a matte finish. There's something about this that doesn't quite impress (maybe it's the texture is a little off.) I am sticking with what's already in my bag in this category which does the trick quite nicely for a few less bucks

Just alright..

Found it to be like several other products that are supposed to do the same thing.. And it wasn't to different. Although I have only used it a couple of times I have noticed no difference except for the fact it made me break out.. It's also a little on the expensive said for me. With that being said I think you can get the same thing for cheaper

I have used other products by them and they were just okay. This didn't really reduce pore appearance and made my face really dry.

I had owned this primer in the past and do not like it. Breaks my skin out and doesn't seem to be effective. Too Oily and slippery.

Grainy baby powder feel/smell
Sampled

This product is just not for me. I like that it's tinted, but the texture feels grainy, almost like you're putting powder on your face, and it takes a lot to cover your face, felt like half the sample. The smell is also just not that appealing to me. Overall, I would not recommend this product.

Weird texture
Sampled

Weird texture - pilled up when I tried to rub it in. Not something I'd buy at all.
