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.

This is a great face primer for my skin. It is pearly and creamy and goes on my skin very easily. I used all mine.

Works so well!

I typically use primers that have the added salicylic acid ingredient, but when my blemishes are at bay, I like to use this primer. It has a really nice cream to powder feeling to it, almost like a silky silicone. Once applied, it leaves a nice matte finish. It keeps the oiliness and shininess at a minimum. I use Dior Nude Show foundation with this product, and it keeps my makeup from appearing faded or worn out and prevents transfer. I love Benefit cosmetics and this primer is no exception! And the tube? Adorable! Benefit is known for their great packaging, which I am always a sucker for! Thanks, Birchbox, for making Benefit Cosmetics available to your consumers!

Pores no more!

The formula has a pleasant scent, which is nice because I frequently use this product in and around my nose area, where my pores are the most unsightly. Really helps to minimize the look of pores, even when you don't put foundation on top of it.

Silky, poreless and flawless skin

This product actually does shrink the appearance of pores, exactly as it claims it will. It goes on silky and doesn't alter the application or appearance of foundation or powder. I'd recommend this to anyone that constantly struggles with the appearance of pores (especially on the nose and T-zone).

This is just the best formula... Nothing less than what I would expect from Benefit. It goes on smooth and almost matte. Always leaves my face super smooth and a little goes a long way.

Magic!

I don't have a lot of issues with my pores being noticeable, but when I want to look photo-ready this is the best! I use it over my foundation, and I love its silky texture, and it really does just mask the look of pores. It works!

I have used this product and I am actually disappointed because it does not help me achieve a smooth look and I have nice skin with pores on my nose. I won't buy again.
