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.

Tiny sample for the type of product

I've gotta say I don't really get what you're supposed to do with such a small sample of this... And I don't notice a difference when I put it on anyway. I know some people swear by it, but it seems like you would need to use a ton for so little payoff. Not for me.

Decent

I love products like this. Overall I thought it was "okay" but not the best. I did not feel like it really did anything to minimize the look of my pores but it is nice and smooth and provides a good base coat under my foundation.

Not sure why all the hype?
Sampled

This is one of those products that has quite a reputation, but I'm not entirely sure why. I wanted to love this, when I first got a sample of this from ulta I was so excited and then... It might be my skin type (oily combination), but I just don't seem to have the same results others get. I've noticed that my smaller pores look a tiny bit better, but nothing I would rave over. It didn't do much for my larger ones. Upside is that it has a wonderful smooth texture. Just not for me I suppose.

Felt that it was a bit drying and I already have dry facial skin.

I think that this was a good product -- I didn't notice a huge difference but maybe a long term use would be more helpful. It did make my skin look smooth.

Eh

I use primers a lot, but I found nothing special or great about it. It works well, but I didn't feel it was any better then average. I like Urban Decay's better

I couldn't really see results from using this, but that is probably because this product wasn't really relevant to me.

I don't get it.

I don't exactly understand the point of this product. In my opinion, I don't feel as though it minimizes my pores at all and it's just an "okay" primer. I'm sorry. Great intentions. I just don't think it works well.

It is a great primer! I'm not sure how much it minimizes my pores, but a great base for your makeup
