Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional Face Primer

This silky makeup primer diffuses the look of pores and fine lines for an air-brushed finish. Those with an oily T-zone will appreciate that it controls excess shine, too.

Not good for Oily skin

I’ve tried this on numerous occasions with different foundations and it always breakdowns. I do not like this primer.

This is the absolute best pore reducing primer on the market! It may be a bit expensive but it is worth it!

good, not great

I’ve had large pores in my T-zone my whole life. My go-to has always been Clinique’s invisible pore minimizer. I use it over my foundation in my T-zone area. It smooths my skin like magic.

That being said, I ADORE Benefit Cosmetics, so I was excited to try their pore minimizer. Verdict? It’s good, but not great. Benefit’s pore minimizer is tinted. The color was a bit off for my fair skin. It also doesn’t blur pores as effectively as my go-to. So this product is a no-go for me.

Excellent

I love this primer it smooths out all your pores and imperfections leaving your skin super smooth. It does kind of have a old lady smell to me but it’s not terribly strong. I love it and use it almost everyday

Does a good job keeping make up on all day and blurs you’re pores.

Overall Great Product

Like many others, I love this product! It goes on nice and smooth and smells nice but not too strong. A little goes a long way which is important when I am spending a good amount of money on a product. The appearance of my makeup is subtly but surely improved when I use this primer. I have had no issues with breakouts even with my acne prone skin.

Best face primer!!!

This face primer is one of the best I have ever used. It makes your face smooth and silky and your makeup just goes on smoothly and last all day. I highly recommend it.

Applies like silk on your face. Very light and airy. Great results. I use before applying my bb or cc cream.
