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 didn't find this product particularly effective. It may be just my skin and / or skin tone, but I didn't notice a significant difference in my skin or makeup after application.2
I absolutely loved this product. It stays on all day and it completely covers my pores. However, and I tested this twice without using any other new products, it definitely makes my face break out. This occasionally happens to me with new products, but not with every product. I used it for 4 days straight each time, and on the 4th day, bingo. Not good. I'd like a product that I can use every day. Otherwise, a great product.2
porefessional primer was the first primer i ever used on a regular basis. since then, however, primers have come a long way - color adjusting, illuminating, spf, etc. while the porefessional still does the job, i would rather use products that serve more than one purpose.2
I can't speak to whether or not this reduces pores, but I can say that this does the opposite of what you want a primer to do. Rather than make my foundation (Bobbi Brown) go on easier, it made it go on patchier. I am still looking for my go-to primer and this isn't it.2
I know nearly everyone loves the Porefessional, but it didn't stand out to me. I have combination skin, which was made greasier by this product, and I didn't notice a difference in the appearance of pores.2
This just didn't do much for me when I used it. I wore it one day and my makeup didn't seem to go on any better or last longer. Normally I would try it a few more times, but right after using this I got a really nasty blemish right where the product was applied. I never break,out there, so it seems an unlikely coincidence. I think I'll steer clear.2
Everyone else seems to love this and I can only speculate that it is because they wear liquid or cream foundations. I only wear mineral powder as a daily foundation, sometimes with a bit of blemish or under-eye concealer here and there. I think that, because I never wear full-face foundation, this product doesn't seem to make much of a difference in the way my finished face looks.2
I've gotten this sample from something or other a dozen times over the past few years. I don't think it's that effective, so I just give them away to friends.2
I was very excited to try this product. I have always enjoyed Benefit's products. I like the texture and the smell of this product. It smells fresh and goes on smoothly. However, minutes after I applied this my nose and chin were flaky and dry. I tried several times and this product did not work for me.2
I had I ready bought this primer for myself about a year ago. I had to give my full size porefessional away because it broke me out.2
