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 our pores. 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.

made my dry skin look cracked, flaky

maybe it's because i have extremely dry skin, but this product did not work for me at all. my skin just looked cracked and dry as soon as i put foundation on. i did what i could with it for the night but when i removed my makeup i noticed i had little bumps all over my forehead.
this is probably just my skin being super sensitive, but i now i'm definitely cautious before using any primer.

Not the best for Extremely Oily Skin

I enjoyed the texture of this product a very soft and "buttery" feeling. it was very soft and my foundation blended over the top effortlessly. However, I have extremely oily skin and after about an hour or two, my foundation started slip and sliding down my face. In addition, pigment began to transfer to anything that come in contact with my face.

Was it just me?

I was very pleased when I saw the packaging of this product and was anxious to try it. I was also pleasantly surprised by the texture and the smell (lack of?) of the cream. Unfortunately, I did not see any noticeable difference by hiding pores. The only thing I noticed was a few minutes after I had put it on my skin there would be a slight peeling. Maybe it just wasn't working well with my moisturizer, but I would not purchase this product.

I was not very impressed with this product. My sample came with the product separated and when I tried using it, all that came out was oil. I had to shake it vigorously and when I finally used it, I really was not all too impressed.

While I generally like Benefit cosmetics, their skin care doesn't agree with me and The POREfessional was no exception. It felt great going on, but three days in to using it, the red splotches started to appear.

I couldn't really tell any difference after using it. The texture was nice, but it didn't minimize pores or lines for me :-(

Wasn't for me...
Sampled

I wanted to love this product...but unfortunately, it really didn't minimize my pores. It felt nice and light...I could totally see it working for someone as a primer. But, I don't think it does anything better for my face than my current BB Cream. But, everyone is different. I'll be sharing my sample with one of my friends in case it works for her.

Did not notice more of a difference than the current primer that I use.

I am sure this is a great product, it just wasn't for me. I don't have a huge problem with this so perhaps that is why I didn't see much helpfulness.

I don't use foundation and I'm not sure that...

I don't use foundation and I'm not sure that this product is of much use to me. I will hand it off to a friend and if they like it tell them to purchase it from Birchbox!
