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.

Decent primer
Sampled

I tried this for a couple of days and thought it did a decent enough job of covering up some of my problem areas. I did feel like it was a little greasy, which was annoying but sometimes that's just how my skin reacts to things (unfortunately!).

There are better primers
Sampled

I have sampled several different face primers out there, searching for one that will minimize pores and delay the inevitable onset of oil. This wasn't terrible but it didn't make me look "pore less" at all and I already use a primer that is more effective. I wouldn't spend the money on it.

It seems like a good product
Sampled

I love the idea of this product, and it is probably very useful for some people. However, I do not have enlarged pores, and so it is not relevant to me.

Minimized Pores
Sampled

I fortunately do not have a big pore issue. I tried this sample and it was silky and left my face ready for foundation. Good product but prefer others for my aging skin.

Minimal reduction / clogged pores
Sampled

I liked the smell and texture of this product, and it did slightly diminish the size of my pores. However after a few uses, it clogged my pores and I got a few pimples, so I will not buy this product.

Not Quite Sure About This One
Sampled

I think this product works but it was sort of tough to tell. I guess maybe that's the point. Texture is creamy but slick, applies easily, light in color.

It was okay :/
Sampled

Maybe since my pores already don't show too much I thought they would disappear with this but nothing changed :(

Eh doesn't work
Sampled

I had this as a sample from Sephora. Didn't really do much for me then or now. Left my face dry.

can clump on skin
Sampled

i love the idea of this product, but I find it very difficult to apply it evenly and it can clump when I'm trying to smooth it.

Take it or leave it
Sampled

I have yet to find that perfect under make-up product that primes, and unfortunately this isn't it either. I LOVE the texture and the scent is nice, but it made my make-up look almost clumpy in a way it never has before. I'll keep experimenting until the sample is through, but I'm afraid that will be the end of my relationship with this particular product.
