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.

My only complaint about this product is that it doesn't mesh well with all liquid makeup it seems to roll off like dry skin otherwise it's good at Vanishing pores and making a skin look more smooth. Best with smashbox, not good under IT makeup.

I don't like how my skin doesn't feel like it can breathe with the product on it.

pores no more!!!

this primer is wonderful. it deserves all the hype it is getting. this smooths the skin for an easy foundation and concealer application and really does minimize your pores. its a silicone based primer but unlike other primers its very easy to mix into skin and provides a smooth and texture free canvas for further products being applied in your everyday makeup routine :)

Great!

I love this product because it goes on smooth and I forget I'm even wearing it. I use it on my nose a lot and it doesn't show or get clumpy. I really love Benefit skin products because they're easy to find in pharmacies on the run.

Only used it once, but it felt great. Love the priming action. Minimizes pore, still in the air. but it did make my skin look and feel pretty darn good.

Its Okay

I used this product after receiving in my box, I have oily skin and I wasn't thrilled with the texture it gave my face. It didn't really help my makeup stay on, nor did it really control my level of oiliness. I wouldn't quite suggest using for oily skin

Great Primer

Love this primer! I buy this primer when I don't have one on hand. It's my go-to makeup primer. It has a silicon-y feel to it.
