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 our pores. 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.

Good if unexciting primer
Sampled

This is a good if unexciting primer. I use it on my t-zone over my moisturizer and under my foundation to mattify. Not sure it hides pores, but it doesn't clog them either.

Does it's job...
Purchased

This product is an alright primer. I wouldn't suggest this product for girls who really want to mask their pores. It's very light and acts as a thin (powderish) base. It's nice -- I like it. I'm just not sure if it's worth the money.

Great Primer!

I have used this primer many times in the past. It makes your skin feel like silk and it really does change the way your makeup goes on! It makes your skin appear much smoother! The only thing I did not like was that it didn't seem to help much as far as keeping my makeup in place. By the middle of the day, I was still needing to retouch just as much as before!

Only For Special Occasions

It lessens the look of my pores, helps control oil, brightens my complexion, and helps my makeup lady all day, but sadly it breaks my out if I use it everyday. I save this product for special occasions.

Pretty good

I tried this product out around a year ago and have been using it off and on since then. It certainly does well hiding pores and leaves a matte finish- yet I prefer more of the "dewey" look so tend to opt for Benefit's "That Girl" primer and occasionally use it on top of the pore-fessional. I should warn that it does occasionally cause me to break out so use sparingly if you're acne prone.

Great pore coverage

Slides on well, doesn't feel too thick but covers up pores and forms great base for other make-up. Another great product from Benefit. Solid performer.

Must Have For your Makeup Routine

This is one of those products that I would suggest to anyone who wears makeup. I uses this as a Primer and it works wonders. Helps my make-up have a nice finish and also keeps my make-up look all day.

Primed and Ready

Benefit has done it again, producing one of my fave products. This primer has a similar texture to Dr. Feelgood and leaves my face feeling soft and smooth. Makeup glides on after application.

Love!

Goes on smooth and soft and makes my concealer and foundation go on even more evenly. My pores also look sooo much better after using it a few times.

Wonderful product...
SampledPurchased

It does its job well. Cream is light and blends well. Great as a primer. Pores are much smaller. I have used this for a long time and I love it.
