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.

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.

Very nice.

Covered my redness very well and made my skin smoother. Also made certain features very bold.

I liked the texture. It is very smooth. It was not that effective for my skin.

Nice product

I need a heavier duty pore minimizer but this is great for someone who needs basic smoothing

Not the Best
Sampled

Maybe I'm applying this product wrong, but it did not do what I expected. If anything, it made me feel like my pores were more visible than before. Also, it made my skin feel weird after I applied it.

Eh

It works fine for the first 10 minutes, then it gets yellowy and balls up on my skin.

Ok formula....

I like that this was slightly tinted and the silicone feel, but I'm not all too sure it was effective. Others may feel differently though as I am not a huge fan of primers bc I tend to always feel they aren't that effective. I also noticed after about 8 hrs my makeup was showing serious signs of wear.

Not sure what the hype is about

I tried this out on what I assumed were problem areas. Maybe my pore just don't really show much? It just seemed to have a bit of a smoothing effect. Nothing special.

This face primer does do exactly what it claims.. It fills in your pores and makes your face super smooth and soft to the touch. i would recommend trying this product.

This is descent

I feel that this is good for those who are not too familiar with primers. To me, this is very basic. There are better on the market but this is mildly effective.
