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.

This primer was OK. It did the job but I like other primers better. I had hoped this one would minimize my pores more than it did. For the price, I'll stick with my current brand.

Nice product, not great for my oily skin
Sampled

I really love Benefit and I use all sorts of their products, so I was happy to see this sample in my March Birchbox. I have very oily skin, though, and it seemed like this product make my skin even oilier/shinier. It felt nice and silky, but I didn't like the overall effect.

Nothing special
Sampled

This is just like any other tinted primer, nothing special. I prefer using products that are more natural that get the job done equally well.

Hmmm

I see the purpose, but it made my skin break out in acne. I must not have the right type of skin to use it.

too oily
Sampled

Initially, the product is great. Goes on smooth and served its purpose. My skin just turned too oily after a few hours, made my T zone look too shiny.

Disappointed

I was excited to try this Benefits product. I feel I have noticed pores but I didn't see a difference when I used the product.

Way overrated primer
Sampled

This primer made my skin break out more. Plus, each time I wore it my foundation seriously looked worse at the end of the day than the beginning. I have normal to dry skin and this primer made it look oily and my foundation sort of separated on top of the primer, which normally doesn't happen. This has a very silicone feel to it, but no scent which is a plus. Overall I was very disappointed with this primer.

Not for me

I didn't feel like this did anything more for my skin than my foundation already did.
