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 liked the sheerness of this product, it felt pretty nice under my makeup, but I'm not totally sure that it provides enough coverage for truly visible pores. I think it was a slight improvement and I'm not an expert on pore minimizing products, but I think it's decent.

Not impressed
Sampled

I was really excited to try this, but I didn't see a noticable difference in my pores and it didn't work as well as other primers I've used.

It's ok

I don't really have a pore problem so I was unsure how it would be effective for me. A little drying and I need moisture but I can see how it would work great for the right face. I will re gift it to someone I know loves it.

really want to like it, but just don't

I've gotten this product before in a Birchbox, and I keep using it because I really like Benefit products and the pore-hiding formula appeals to me... However, I don't feel like this product actually does anything for me in smoothing over or hiding pores. I enjoy the texture and the color, but on me this product just isn't effective.

I like but not love.

I wish it was a bigger size. I like this product but it didn't really have everything I look for in a product like this. Maybe I will give it another try.

Not my favorite

There are so many primers available now and this one is just okay in my opinion. I do not like silicone based primers and this does not work well with my oily skin.

Different but the same
Sampled

I liked this product, but already use something similar that I like. Don't get me wrong, it WORKS, but it isn't any different from other brands I love. I currently use MAC and Laura Mercier and it worked as well as these.

Dried my skin out
Sampled

I have very dry skin and after using this product a couple of times I noticed by skin becoming very dry. I thought this concealer gave me good coverage throughout the day but after it made my skin so dry I will not be buying this product.

Not for Me

I don't really wear enough make up to bother with primer much. I do like the texture and the consistency of this, and it seems to be fairly effective as a primer; I didn't see any noticeable reduction in pore size, so I'm not too sure on that claim. Also, I feel like this is fairly expensive for a primer in general.
