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 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 impressed
Sampled

I have used other products by them and they were just okay. This didn't really reduce pore appearance and made my face really dry.

Not for me

I had owned this primer in the past and do not like it. Breaks my skin out and doesn't seem to be effective. Too Oily and slippery.

Grainy baby powder feel/smell
Sampled

This product is just not for me. I like that it's tinted, but the texture feels grainy, almost like you're putting powder on your face, and it takes a lot to cover your face, felt like half the sample. The smell is also just not that appealing to me. Overall, I would not recommend this product.

Weird texture
Sampled

Weird texture - pilled up when I tried to rub it in. Not something I'd buy at all.

Does not work with makeup

I have found that using this with foundation or other face make up does not work very well. Using it as a primer does not let me foundation set well. And putting it on after makeup is applied, ruins your makeup.

I like anything for my pores to help minimize their appearance. Very good stuff!

Pore Failure
Sampled

This did not work for me at all. If anything, it made my skin look greasy and shiny, not matte at all. It did no noticeable difference to my pores at all. They looked the exact same. I don’t have very noticeable pores to begin with, so I was really trying this out to make my skin more matte. Needless to say, for someone with combination skin, this just exacerbated the oiliness of my skin. The only plus was that it smelled nice. That’s about it.

Wanted to love...
Sampled

But unfortunately, I couldn't. This stuff breaks me out like crazy. It feels nice when you put it on, very silky, but it kind of makes my foundation and concealer slide around during application. I don't see a difference in the duration of my makeup when using this, and as I said it breaks me out every time I use it. I owned this product in the past, and had to give away a practically unused full size bottle to a friend because it didn't do me any favors. Meh. Disappointed to receive this sample.
