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.

I am a busy mom. To me this is just an extra step. I need to get ready quick. I have no time for extra things that I do not need.

Sensitive skin users beware. I've used this product before I received this sample and I broke out into hives. I wanted to be excited about this brand but I just can't be. It fell short when I tried different things and broke out into hives. I only break out when a product has a lot of chemicals to it. Not good!

I have sebaceous filaments on my nose, the porefessional broke me out :(
Sampled

My t-zone is usually oily due to my large pores on my nose. I also have sebaceous filaments. I rarely get any other type of acne on my nose but three days of using the primer in the morning gave me 4 small pimples. Benefit's website states, "Benefit does not test for or claim that our products are hypo-allergenic (least likely to cause an allergic reaction) or non-comedogenic (does not cause pimples & blackheads)." Obviously I will not be purchasing the full size.

I love products from Benefit, but this is one I don't need/use.

I don't have a problem with my pores, so I was super disappointed to receive this in my box. Not to mention I've already tried and owned this and thought it was kind of useless.

Not a fave

I got this thinking it would be great based on all the great things people said about it but unfortunately it got all gummy on my face and balled up in a very unflattering way.

Pick a different primer

I don't like the way this feels on my face. I can feel it after I put it on. And it made me break out but then again a lot of things do because my skin is so sensitive

break out culprit

this silicone primer clogs pores like no other and consistently breaks me out whenever I use it, no matter how little I use. I didn't understand my reaction to it since I'm not generally sensitive to silicone ingredients, but after reading tons of reviews by others who stated the same, I'm convinced it's not just the silicone base, but something else. Overall, I stay away...and my face thanks me for it!

Bought this hoping to make my makeup last longer through the day, sadly, applying my liquid foundation after using this primer made my foundation all funky and gloopy on my face., it was hard to wipe off.
