Benefit Cosmetics 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.

Good primer

It did its job and leaves your skin feeling soft but I have oily skin. It didn't help very much with that and didn't allow my makeup to last that much longer.

Meh...the ubiquitous sample
Sampled

I have too many minis of this product and haven't been able to decide if a) it helps my skin or not, b) if it makes me break out, and c) if a person really needs a primer at all! Could have done without this one very easily.

It was alright..

Went on super smooth, but I didn't get the 'wow' factor though.

This month's box choices were really not well suited to me-- none of them, really. I don't have pore issues so I noticed nothing, but then-- what was there to potentially see if it's not an issue for me??

Pore

I don't use a pore minimizer in my daily routine. I used this sample, and it felt great on my face, but I don't think it is something I plan to use daily.

I did not notice a difference myself but helped as a base before applying my makeup

too yellow
Sampled

I was super excited to get this but was oh so disappointed at how jaundiced I looked in it. I don't think any healthy person's skin tone is this shade of yellow.

I loved the way it went on so easy and it made my skin feel nice and so soft but I really did not notice difference other then what said none in pore size or anything

Okay

I love Benefit products. And I love products like this. But I felt this one made my skin look dry. I like my Younique BB cream better.

Decent

I don't use primer but this one seems good, it's doesn't leave a shiny or greasy finish like other ones I've tried.
