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 what this product does for my skin with regard to creating a better foundation to apply the rest of my makeup to--it definitely helps smooth and minimize. I have to admit that I needed a little more help with regard to oil control, so I simply mixed it with a primer I was already using that's strictly mattifying, and the results were amazing.

The first time I tried this product, it did cover my pores, but then after using it more it made my face feel unclean. I used it during the day to touch up my skin because my face gets red spots throughout the day on occasions. It did not change the redness nor diminish my red spots on my face which I was hoping it would do.

Best primer!
Purchased

This is the best primer I have ever tried! I have oily skin and live where it gets extremely hot. This kept my makeup in place all day. No sliding and or disappearing. It worked well on my nose, my problem area, and kept the makeup there all day. One day my makeup did slide from sunglasses, so I used this on top of my makeup to "fill" it back in. Looked great, no caking! I live this stuff!

I love how this product hides my pores. Since I have oily skin, it does a great job of controlling the shine too.

I love this product. There is a slight possibility that I've hyped up this primer in my head due to all of the great reviews that I've heard from it, but I do think that my foundation looks better when I've used this. I'm super oily so I can't say this reduces that very much, but I do think it's an improvement directly after applying my makeup.

Light and effective
Sampled

Sometimes when I contour I don't want another layer of anything on my face, but this is so thin and effective. It looks great for everyday cover ups, or priming for contouring. Will continue to make this item a staple.

It really closes your pores!
Sampled

This is my favorite product so far. i have huge open pores on my nose and this is the only thing that has been able to hide it. I'm in love with this product! I'd definitely recommend. the smell is gentle, and dries fast so my skin doesnt feel gooey.
