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.

I love products from Benefit, but this is one I don't need/use.

Dissapointed

I don't have a problem with my pores, so I was super disappointed to receive this in my box. Not to mention I've already tried and owned this and thought it was kind of useless.

Not a fave

I got this thinking it would be great based on all the great things people said about it but unfortunately it got all gummy on my face and balled up in a very unflattering way.

Pick a different primer

I don't like the way this feels on my face. I can feel it after I put it on. And it made me break out but then again a lot of things do because my skin is so sensitive

break out culprit

this silicone primer clogs pores like no other and consistently breaks me out whenever I use it, no matter how little I use. I didn't understand my reaction to it since I'm not generally sensitive to silicone ingredients, but after reading tons of reviews by others who stated the same, I'm convinced it's not just the silicone base, but something else. Overall, I stay away...and my face thanks me for it!

Nope

Bought this hoping to make my makeup last longer through the day, sadly, applying my liquid foundation after using this primer made my foundation all funky and gloopy on my face., it was hard to wipe off.

It doesn't work for me

I know people go nuts over this primer, but I feel like it's just way too heavy on my skin. I feel like midway through the day, I want to wipe my face off. There's something about silicone (I know it's not supposed to) that breaks me out. I had to return mine.

Disappointing

I had heard great things about this product, but for me it was not a win. I could feel it on my skin and didn't enjoy anything about it.

Dry and uneven mess

I did NOT like this stuff. The color was weird and made my face look orange. It also was really flaky and dry looking. (my skin is NOT dry and flaky) I really would not buy this or use it again. My tube is still sitting in a drawer somewhere.
