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.

Was just OK
Sampled

I thought this worked just fine--but was pretty similar to the drug-store brand that costs $6 instead of $30.

Too Dry
Sampled

This primer goes on smoothly and feels nice, but with my ageing skin, I am concerned with moisture. This product made my face feel dry no matter how much moisturizer I used; a shame because I wanted to like it.

Primer

I really like this primer but don't use it all the time, mostly after the gym because I like the matte texture.

Decent primer
Sampled

I have received a different formulation of this primer in a previous box and both are fairly good primers. They go on smoothly and don't crease. This was very light which is good for a primer. I didn't notice any breakdown or break out after using. I have used other primers that worked a bit better in hiding my fine lines and wrinkles but this one was decent.

The texture is so smooth and satiny, and the fragrance is wonderful.

Great Matte Finish!

I tend to have shiny skin in the summer months and this product immediately got rid of the shine.

Okay primer
Sampled

This primer feels good going on but it didn't seem to help my makeup stay on through the day. I also got shiny towards the end of the day.

Reduced pores perfectly. Goes on smooth, non greasy. I've used many other primers and this is my favorite so far!

Love love love this Primer. it being translucent is a big plus as I don't like the tint in others I have tried.It totally erased my enlarged pores like no other product of any kind has and lastly..omg it gave my face such a soft and supple feel I just could not stop touching it.This product is simply amazing.

This actually works amazingly. I have large pores on my nose and my chin both and with this under my foundation I hardly see them.
