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 our pores. 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.

Great primer

I really love that I got this as a sample. I've had the opportunity to try this before from sephora. The sample I originally got was pretty small and has been out for awhile so I'm glad I got this one from birchbox. It makes my face feel so soft and ready for my next step of makeup.

Smooth

I've used many products similar to this, but this is the best I've tried. It goes on so smooth, rubs in nicely, has a nice scent, and I like the slight tint.

This stuff is great if you wear foundation regularly. I hardly ever wear foundation so i have no use for this product

Another great Benefit product
Sampled

I love the texture of this product! At first it felt slightly greasy, but once I applied it, it worked well and kept my skin looking smooth (and not oily!).

Like it a lot

My daughter gave me a sample of this for Christmas. Wasn't sure what it was supposed to do but when I used it I totally saw what it did. At 59 my pores have become somewhat large & applying base makeup with all my wrinkles along with large pores has less desireable then when I was younger. This product doesn't really shrink pores, it does however, fill in the pores so that when you put on your makeup, it goes on much smoother & hides the holes in your face. Like it a lot.

I don't wear enough make up to need this product, but on the rare occasion I do, I would use this. I noticed a difference after application, my skin looked smoother and my powder went on better.

Pore-fect

Although I don't really feel I needed this product, I applied nicely and felt soft. For those with large pores it may be beneficial, but for me it was another "layer" .

Amazing primer
Sampled

This is an amazing primer! I was so impressed with the coverage and how well it blended with my skin. To be fair I have fair white skin. My only wish is that it had spf in it.

Meh not for me
Sampled

I love benefit but this is one product that's not for me. I have tried it before and trying it again I still don't find it to be effective. I just have found other products that do the same thing and better.
