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.

Doesn't do everything the description claims

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

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.

Made For Me

I love what this product does for my skin with regard to creating a better foundation to apply the rest of my makeup to--it definitely helps smooth and minimize. I have to admit that I needed a little more help with regard to oil control, so I simply mixed it with a primer I was already using that's strictly mattifying, and the results were amazing.

Porable

The first time I tried this product, it did cover my pores, but then after using it more it made my face feel unclean. I used it during the day to touch up my skin because my face gets red spots throughout the day on occasions. It did not change the redness nor diminish my red spots on my face which I was hoping it would do.
