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.

Expected more
Sampled

I had high expectations for this product based on what I'd heard, and it did work nicely with just a tiny bit of color, but it didn't hide my pores the way I thought it would. Good primer, not as good at concealing pores as I'd hoped.

Amazing!

I love this product! I've used bare minerals powder for years, however, I've heard it is very drying to skin so I've recently switched to using a little of the benefit Boiing airbrush concealer. I use a little of the POREfessional Face Primer first and the concealer just glides on after. Very lovely and light, I highly recommend.

Average

I wasn't real impressed with the feel or coverage of this product. Maybe you need to have a problem with your pores to see an effect but I didn't find it to be superior to other primers.

Good

I have used pore professional in the past and loved it then. I do feel it minimizes the look of pores and evens out foundation, but it can have a greasy feel to it. :-/

I received it as a sample several months ago. I just ran out of my usual so tried this. I will be switching and purchasing this product.

Doesn't do everything the description claims
Sampled

I really like the Benefit brand but this isn't a great product for me. It feels/looks nice and makes my skin very smooth at first, but after a couple of hours, my skin becomes very oily-looking/feeling where the product was applied. The product claims to be oil-free but it doesn't feel that way. Another big downside is that it is not a noncomedogenic product and it definitely clogs my pores.

Shine Control
Sampled

This product was pretty well at controlling shine as a base. It is a little pricey though. A little goes a long way.

I've actually had this before in my makeup case and like it, makes your skin super soft. Especially nice for around my nose area.
