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.

I was really excited about giving this a try when I saw it in my box. Pores are a huge issue for me. But this left much to be desired. It did absolutely nothing that it claimed and left my skin feeling oily.

Average primer
Sampled

I have oily skin and it's very hard to find a makeup line that will last for hours if not all day. This eye primer is no different than what I've tried in the past. Sad to say because I love benefit cosmetics.

Not Bad
Sampled

I have seen this product many times in stores, but never gotten a chance to try it. I was excited to receive a sample in my birch box. I like the fragrance of the product and I like the way it works. I put it on my "T" zone, and it seems to cover my pores pretty good. The only thing I don't care for is that it is a little greasy for my taste.

Not the best
Sampled

Definitely not as good as other primers I've tried before. My skin got oily pretty quickly and didn't help my makeup apply any better. Not worth buying for me.

Benefit Face Primer

I am highly disappointed in this product. While it does go on smoothly, it did nothing for my face. This product wasn't very effective. While I love Benefit products, this was totally a miss.

I thought it was a good primer! However, I don't usually wash my face or do anything with it so I probably will not buy for future uses.

I had high hopes... A little too high.

I've been looking forward to this sample for months! But it didn't quite live up to my expectations. I already use baby skin by Mabelline and I've heard it's dupe for this stuff. And I have to agree.
I personally like smashbox better. I have oily skin and it definitely kept everything in place better.

Good product

I like this product, kind of bummed I got it in my box because I already owned it, but guess it was good to have a back up!

Super matte
Sampled

I personally favor smashbox's oil free photoready primer a little more. Though this one too has the velvety soft matte feel as well. I think smashbox holds your makeup a bit longer which is my incentive for wearing a primer in the first place
