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.

Works great!

Worked well as a primer under my foundation. I plan on purchasing a full size product from Birchbox in the near future!

I feel like this did not make my pores look smaller. Just felt greasy and too shiney

Ok

I didn't think the tint gave any extra coverage and it didn't feel as smooth as other primers I've used.

AMAZING

I never really thought about my pores before and while I've used primers in the past I love how matte this is and how it feels so incredibly light. It works alright as a primer, but just the feeling of this product on my skin is enough to buy the product.

Wanted to Like It

I've been wanting to try this for a while, so I was excited when it came in my Birchbox. But it acted like more of a primer. I have very fair skin so it didn't really reduce the visibility of my pores. Made my skin slightly smoother in touch, but could still see pores.

I love the super creamy consistency of this primer. I don't know that it hides all of your pores, but it does help to even out my skin tone

Diminishes pore appearance
Sampled

I liked this product, it was comparable to Smashbox's primer in texture & performance. It does minimize pore appearance and glides on with a silky texture. I'm not sure it really improves my concealer or foundation's staying power any but I haven't noticed caking or any negative factors.

Always a Treat

This is one of those products that I LOVE getting samples of, but haven't actually purchased. Not sure why though, as it works really well. If you're a little oily this doesn't help with that situation, but it does minimize pores without adding oil, so it works well for my purposes. I do really like this.
