Benefit The POREfessional

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.

Always a favorite

Prior to getting this product in my Birchbox I've owned and used this product. I switch back and forth between a bareminerals primer and this one. Definitely worth a try.

Acts like a primer

Good for the "T-Zone" area, not sure if it clogging my pores though! If you are planning to wear a tone of makeup, probably would "benefit" you to put on before, not usefully for not makeup.

Nice primer!

I've gotten a sample of this from another retailer before and the tiny size just always makes me laugh. HOWEVER- I don't really think this is a primer you put all over your face anyhow. I like to put it on my cheeks and chin :) I think the consistency is really nice- not oily or sticky. It doesn't leave your face feeling tight or like you just put elmer's glue all over your face. It's nice!

Great Product

I've been looking for a product that reduces pores and I found it. This porefessional goes on super smooth! It really hides those pores and gives you a great base for applying makeup with out being caked on.

Not my kind of product

I typically LOVE Benefit, but this just isn't my thing. I don't use anything like this and felt like it was covering my pores by adding more gunk to them. It's just not something I'd add to my makeup regimen.

Feels like other top brand make up primers

I don't have a problem with large pores so I can only review this product on it's texture, not how well it reduces the appearance of pores. It feels like other top brand primers. It's nice and light and didn't make me break out. I did test to see if it improved fine lines and I didn't notice much of a difference. All in all, it seems like a decent product but I will stick with my current primer.

Understood the Hype but not for me

While I understand why many people would be in love with this, for me it felt strange on my skin and it was too distracting for the positives to outway.

Great quality, as usual for Benefit

I'm usually not a fan of primers, but this is a great product. Benefit does not disappoint! Will not clog pores.

POREfessional

I have very large pores so was excited to use this product. It really did minimize the look and felt nice on the skin.
