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.

Wonderful product!!!
Sampled

It went on like silk and just melted into my skin. It visably reduced my pores and felt very light on my face. It lasted well and was easy to blend with other products. It has a very slight clean smell. I loved it.

Best pore minimizing primer out there! I love this product and especially the travel sizes. I would love to get some samples of the newer ones benefit has come out with.

Meh...

I am not really a fan of this product. I don't typically use a primer and I feel that the formula was greasy on my skin. I wouldn't purchase this in the future.

Sheer pore minimizing primer...

I liked how sheer this primer went on, especially after seeing that it had a tint to it, as I usually use color free primers. It helped even out my skin tone before I applied my powder foundation which was a nice side benefit. My make up stayed fresh looking for most of the day without needing a setting spray as well.

Ok, but not great

I think this primer is fine for a primer. It goes on well and doesn't feel greasy at all. I don't see the point of it because I can't tell the difference between when I'm wearing it and when I'm not.

not a fan of face primers

I really do not see the point of face primers. I use cleanser, toner and moisturizer by the time I apply my makeup my face is primed already.

just ok
Sampled

this was just ok - I typically don't have issues with my pores so I would not buy this for myself. I know this is a good brand and typically like their products but not something I personally would need or use.
