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.

Don't really see the point

I've used the full sample of the Porefessional and I have to say, I'm not impressed. I typically love Benefit products, but this one missed the mark for me.

Yuck

Didn't like this at all. Made my makeup apply so badly. Completely caked on! Awful!

I WAS excited
Sampled

I was really excited to give this product a try. I've seen it in Macy's and most people have really great things to say about it. HOWEVER. This did not work so great for me. I have combination skin and between my brows is usually quite dry. This product exacerbated that dryness. I was flaky and ew after putting this on. I didn't notice a huge difference in my pore size; but they aren't terribly large to begin with. Wanted to like it but won't finish the sample.

OK, but not for everyone
Sampled

From the title, I think this product would work better on someone who has visible pores. Didn't think this product was anything special, but may work for others.

Dries skin
Sampled

I have sensitive and dry skin. While the product seems good I wouldn't recommend for dry skin as it has a drying factor.

Benefit

I have used Benefit products before and all have failed me miserably. This is no exception.

Seriously?

I'm not sure this product really worked. Don't think it reduced my pores.

Not my kind of product

I typically LOVE Benefit, but this just isn't my thing. I don't use anything like this and felt like it was covering my pores by adding more gunk to them. It's just not something I'd add to my makeup regimen.

Not effective

I really don't understand the hype with this product. It didn't make a difference in the lasting power of my foundation, nor did it fill in or minimize the appearance of my pores. My makeup was still settling in my pores at the end of the day even when using this. I saw NO difference from when I don't use primer.

Pore minimizing

When I tried this product I didn't notice a difference in my pore size at all. The sample was very small and I couldn't apply it very many times to really see if the product worked for me or not.
