Benefit 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.

This is a great product from a great company, but I require a hydrating primer due to my sensitive and dry skin.

porefessional was just not for me because I do not like primers that have that powdery finish to them. Also after I did try it out, it caused me to have a little bit of a breakout and some redness on the skin. If you like primers that have that texture and finish to them, benefit may be a good one to try out since they do have great products.

Didn't work well on me, but that's probably because I have extremely small pores already. I couldn't tell any noticeable difference after using it and it just made my face matte, which I'm not a huge fan of as it looks too "done."

It's really thin and liquidy, almost like it had separated. I like a thicker, more substantial primer.

I don't have noticeable pores. Do you have anything for acne scars and pigmentation?

This is the third primer I have received from you, 3 out of past 5 boxes. I have said now for the third time, I do NOT use foundation so this is of no use to me. My mom is enjoying this however as I give it to her. I on the other hand would like something other than this type of product! Thank you

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.

Pore clogger
Purchased

For me, this product clogged my pores. I wore 1 day and by the end of the day I had blemishes popping up. I waited a few days and gave it another try to make sure it wasn't something else and it happened again. Pore minimizing= pore clogging!

Not worth it

I recently bought this primer because it was cheaper than Smashbox's Photo Finish primer, and a Sephora employee recommended it to me. However, it doesn't even last till lunch on my oily skin. When I first put my foundation on it looks great, but over time it just melts off. Overall I wouldn't recommend this product and I'm definitely not buying it again.
