Benefit 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.

OK, but not for everyone

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.

Primer

Silicone primers don't work for me, it never sets on my skin. After a couple of hours it looks horrible.

Not a fan

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.

Bad for my skin

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.
