Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional Face Primer

This silky makeup primer diffuses the look of pores and fine lines for an air-brushed finish. Those with an oily T-zone will appreciate that it controls excess shine, too.

Pore minimizing is a myth. This creates a film on the skin so that your makeup won't "sink" down.

Not for me

Not big on this product. It pilled a lot with my makeup. I didn't like the way it felt on my skin.

makes makeup slide off

This lessens the amount of wear that I get from my foundation. VerbosBecomes a geasy mess.

Tacky Consistency

Falls flat for me, doesn't spread on my face! I prefer my Becca Priming filter or Smashbox.

Meh
Sampled

I didn't see a change in my pores at all after using this and it also makes your skin feel kinda slippery. Literally no change at all. It's hard to figure out what this is supposed to do in the first place.

Clog city

This just didn't work for me - clogged my pores and caused a breakout. I should have known better with these ingredients, but I like to try all of my samples. Benefit is just an overrated brand for me.

Causes breakouts
Sampled

I wanted to love this primer but I seem to break out with many benefit products. My oily skin couldn't handle this primer.

Clogs pores
Sampled

It blocks pores, so your natural oil production on your face is stymied, and this shows up as visible bulging at pores, like when you first start to workout and you get a dewy look on your nose. Not attractive and not good for your skin. Let your own oils do their work. Clogging pores will cause LARGER PORES!
