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 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.

Didn't work for me

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.

Maybe it's me...

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.

No Difference With Powder Alone

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.

Already had it

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.

Fresh Smell; Dried my skin

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.

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.

not relevant to me

POREfessional didnt make my skin smoother and it isn't something I'd use again. I dont like to clog my pores with silicones. I did like the packaging though

No Difference

I have large pores in my T-zone. I used this product for several days and have not been able to see a difference at all in the size of my pores. It was a nice moisturizer but not effective in what it claims to be able to do.

"Pore" product

I felt this item didn't do the job effectively. It wasn't very strong. For me, it felt very light for a pore treatment.

Pore just the same

This product didn't make a difference for my pores. I don't have big pore to begin with so maybe if I did I would have better results.
