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.

I didn't love how this product dried in my skin. It also flaked a bit when I woke up the next day.

Ehhh it's okay

I've tried lots of these pore perfectors, and this is not my favorite. You have to use a lot to get the coverage desired. It also doesn't last long. After a few hours, it's completely worn off.

Just ok

I did not necessarily enjoy this product. I do not have a pore issue, therefore, probably will not use this one.

I haven't broken out in years, and after one use-zit! No thanks. Not needed.

Pore difference
Sampled

I have used the sample 2X and I did not see any difference. Pores on my nose visible by lunchtime...

Not for me

I'm sure this product would be great for someone with a pore issue. I don't.

Eehh...it's okay

This product was okay. I did see a difference in my pores when I used it, but a minimal one- definitely not enough to spend $30 on this product. I also did not like the texture of this product- it felt very gritty going on.

Overall, this is not a product I would purchase.

Eh... It's ok.

This product is ok. It's nothing that I'd rush out and purchase though. I've tried better pore minimizing products, and will stick with using those. I feel that this product is heavy, hard to blend, and makes my makeup separate on my face throughout the day... which is not a problem I typically have.

Fell way short...

I had really high hopes for this product. My pores are something I'm incredibly self conscience about so I was excited to try something to help hide them. I felt like it was very flaky under my foundation and even more so when I applied more that afternoon. I did like the powdery feeling to it and it is very lightweight but it just didn't provide the coverage (of my pores) I was looking for. I ended up having to use my old primer since I feel it evens out my skin better.

nothing special
Purchased

I have large pores on my nose, and though this does create a matte look, it does nothing for filling in pores.
