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.

One of the best primers
Sampled

I love this primer because it's a little thick and slightly opaque and kind of tinted skin color so you don't necessarily need to wear foundation if you don't want to. If it had an spf, preferably 30 it would be perfect.

Makes my skin feel baby soft!
Sampled

I love this stuff! I have been wanting to try it so I was pumped that it was in my Birchbox this month. It feels like silk going on your skin and a little bit goes a long way. It definitely did make my pores look smaller and it serves as a great primer before BB cream, etc. I will definitely be purchasing a full size soon!

LOVE this product
Sampled

I have very sensative skin, so finding a pore minimizer that doesnt clog my pores and cause me to break out is a major challenge. This little cutie does the trick! And has the added benefit of keeping me shine free all day. Will be purchasing the full-size version when I am all out if my sample.

Airbrush
Sampled

Okay so maybe you don't have the airbrush look granted most of us don't want to look airbrushed but it does a great job smoothing your skin and disappearing your pores. Plus I like the texture of the product...a soft powdery feel

Leaves a velvet finish
Sampled

When I first recieved this sample I wasnt sure if I was going to like it. I was like why do I need a primer or pore filler and most things that I apply before foundation usually either clumps up or makes it look worse. This pore primer or pore filler works wonders it goes on really smooth and makes my skin feel like silk and fills in line lines and pores.

POREfressional Face Primer

I have always wanted to try this product but have never wanted to purchase the full-size in case I didn't like it. I will DEFINITELY be purchasing now! I loved how smooth it made my skin and was overall an amazing primer.

Works better than the tarte one I use now.
Sampled

As I was applying this to my nose where I have a rather large scar from breaking it a couple of years ago, I noticed that this product covered it as well as my pores really well. I currently use the tarte brand pore coverage product which actually also does really well on my nose. So I wasn't convinced yet. However, the tarte one does nothing for my forehead wrinkles. This product does!! I was so pleasantly surprised when it did reduce the visibility of my forehead wrinkles so I will be going to this product next.
