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.

Didn't care for it

It went on smooth, but I felt it was too heavy on my skin and not worth the extra step I would have to take to add to my routine. I saw little improvement.

This leaves your skin very greasy. Horrible for sensitive skin.

I was excited to use this because I have large pores that stand out when I wear makeup, and I thought this would help. It actually made my pores stand out more.

Good product but I don't wear foundation so rather useless to me.

I don't see any change, but then again the sample size is so small you barely get one dosage worth of cream in the tube...

Irritating

I'm glad I tested this on the back of my hand before putting it on my face. It made my skin incredibly itchy.

I have tried this as a sample before and didn't like but was willing to have another go of it. Despite having moisturized, it left me looking very parched. While I don't need pore shrink, I do need some smoothing and it just didn't cut the mustard for that.
