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 liked the smell of this product, and was so excited about using it, but found that it made my skin look slightly chalky. After about three hours it started to flake off (I tried it at home so I could leave it on and see if the chalkiness went away). Since it may just not be a good fit for me, I'm going to pass the sample on to someone else to try.

Not the greatest.
Sampled

The product is okay but I don't recommend it. It does not do all of the things it claims. Overall, it's okay.

Not for me
Sampled

While this product is very light and goes on nicely, I did not see the benefit of using it. I am not sure this is the right product for me.

Primer

The primer was okay. It had a smooth texture when it went on but did not smooth out my pores or cover my fine lines around my mouth. It helped to keep my makeup on a little longer than normal but had a weird look to it when I put makeup over it.

Didn't see a change
Sampled

Used it a few times and didn't see an exceptional change. Perhaps it's not a significant issue for me and therefore I didn't notice?

Not effective
Sampled

I didn't notice any effect. It is tinted so I guess it sort of hid pores insofar as any concealer would but unimpressed. Also feels chalky and I didn't love how it felt on my skin.

Super smooth

Loved the product, makes my face super smooth. But it made my face extra oily by 3hrs into the day.

Good but not great
Sampled

This used to be my holy grail primer, but I have since found others that I like better. It does what it is supposed to do, but at the expense of feeling heavy on the skin.

Don't really see the point
Sampled

I've used the full sample of the Porefessional and I have to say, I'm not impressed. I typically love Benefit products, but this one missed the mark for me.
