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.

Not for me
Sampled

This just makes my face look dull and papery, without any noticeable improvement in my pores, and unless I'm really aggressive with exfoliating, I get little whiteheads all over after using it. Your mileage may vary; my skin can be sensitive at times.

Decent primer
Sampled

I tried this for a couple of days and thought it did a decent enough job of covering up some of my problem areas. I did feel like it was a little greasy, which was annoying but sometimes that's just how my skin reacts to things (unfortunately!).

Great for under foundation
Sampled

The product on its own will not eliminate the need for a foundation. However, the foundation applies more evenly over the product and does have a better finish.

Good Primer
Sampled

Good primer in which it does reduce the appearance of pores but I find it settling on some of my dry spots and looks flaky sometimes.

There are better primers
Sampled

I have sampled several different face primers out there, searching for one that will minimize pores and delay the inevitable onset of oil. This wasn't terrible but it didn't make me look "pore less" at all and I already use a primer that is more effective. I wouldn't spend the money on it.
