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.

This product may be good for others however this isn't for me. I don't have a problem with my pores.

Benefit The POREfessional Face Primer
Sampled

Can't use this product again, it's not for me. Too sticky/oily for my skin type & I'm afraid it would cause my skin to break out if used it again--which doesn't happen often with other sample items I've received & then bought from birchbox. I have a strict beauty regimine that I try to stick too, so I rarely stray from any of my usual makeup primers--especially my foundation primer--eyeshadow primer on the other hand I don't have to worry about as much. If change face primer though to something I wouldn't normally use, it'll irritate skin sometimes. I have very fair & sensitive skin, so I also try to avoid products that a certain fragrance to them.

Not much of a difference
Sampled

I received this product in my April birch box and I was semi-disappointed in the lack of change and my parents after using the poor minimizer/cover-up. There are so many success stories on The reviews that I guess it really works for a bunch of people, but it didn't do anything for me.

I don't like it
Sampled

I love the idea but it feels like I'm putting a cross between a stick of butter and silly putty on my face. It makes me feel icky. It does reduce the look of pores but not that much. I have the ysl blur primer and I like it better.

This item, like every item in my subscription box every month, is awful. I'm tired of receiving primer

Noticed no difference

Maybe I don't have big pores, but I didn't notice ANY difference when I used this product. I tried it both under and over my makeup, and both times, my appearance was unchanged. Not worth it!

I am not a BeneFit fan, but in particular this product makes my face feel very greasy.
