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.

So Smooth and Silky
Sampled

This product felt good when I applied it. It has a very smooth and silky feel that makes it feel very light. Perfect for under my foundation without a heavy build up feel.

Porcelain Dream
Sampled

I cannot even begin to describe how much I LOVE this product. This was one of the first Benefit Cosmetics products I have ever tried, and now I must confess, I'm addicted! :) I always apply this before putting on my makeup because it gives you such a flawless look! Most of us out here struggle with noticeable pores on our noses and this is the only product I've tried that has been able to diminish them so greatly, my skin looks like porcelain! Trust me in this, you will definitely get some compliments on how smooth you skin looks when you use this!

Hm

Well, everyone seems to love this so maybe it's just me, but it was not effective. After few hours it like pilled into whiteness on my face. Not good.

Lovely!

While I don't have any trouble with my pores, I think this product works well as a makeup prep and makes everything look a little smoother.

Works well

Admittedly, I have huge pores on my nose. After using this, I can definitely see a difference.

One of my favorites
Sampled

Though I've been using less and less face makeup lately, when I do use a primer this is the one I use. As long as I use it sparingly and wait 10-15 min before foundation, I find it works with several different foundations. I have also used this primer alone; if my skin looks pretty good but needs a *little* smoothing out I can use this primer to even out the texture. It's just one step above bare-faced.

Okay

The consistency is nice and not too thick, but this did not do much for me and so I will not be purchasing it as I like to keep my look limited to as few products as possible, and there is no room for a primer that has no visible effect

Really minimizes pores
Sampled

I received this as a sample. This is a product that I have always wanted to try but never have until now. I was very pleased with how well it minimized my pores.

Not great but not bad, kind of somewhere in the middle.
