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.

The POREfessional Face Primer
Sampled

This silky, oil-free primer applies easily to the skin, leaving it smoother and more even looking. It provides a nice base for the foundation or powder to be applied on. I didn't notice much difference when it comes to fine lines, though. Overall, the skin did appear much smoother when I was done applying all the makeup.

Smaller pores

This made my large pores disappear and best of all I did not break out from it. Other primers have caused acne and a weird texture on my face. This went on smoothly and looked great all day.

Smaller pores indeed!

This product does what it actually claims to do, which is to shrink visible pores. I have tried several products that made this claim and none have been as effective as this one. It also makes my skin look better without any foundation. I definitely recommend this product.

Primers... yes or no??

I have never been a big fan of primers, just an extra layer to add to give you can face. But this goes on smooth and works to reduce pores and lines. Not caking up my face and feels smooth!!!

Covers pore flawlessly!

I've been using this as a primer the past few weeks as a substitute to my normal routine. If you like a more matte look, I recommend it
