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 our pores. 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.

Nice smoothing effect
Sampled

While I probably won't turn away from my BB cream, this product did make my skin look extremely smooth without looking like I had put on too much makeup.

Good for what it is
Sampled

If you are primer happy, this is a good choice. The texture is nice and it goes on with out streaking.

Happy to sample, not buy
Sampled

It went on smooth and had good texture. I think it minimized pores, but I couldn't tell if it did so more than my normal products. I'm glad I was able to try it, just to see what it was like. But it just seems like an added step to my everyday routine.

Felt really good going on
Sampled

I use this under my moisturizer and I really like the way it goes on. I haven't really noticed a difference in my skin but it could be due to the number of times I've used it.

Works, but may not be for those prone to acne
Sampled

I did not use this sample because I have bought this product in the past and it made my acne prone skin break out. It works well for its intended purpose, but it's not for me. My friend with better skin than mine loves this stuff.

Sample size to small
Sampled

I couldn't tell a difference between my skin before and after using this product. My pores looked the same and it didn't seem to clean them out particularly well, also face product samples need to be at least 2 weeks worth to see how your skin will react.

Wonderfully smooth
Sampled

As someone with an oily T-zone, I love products like this. It went on as smooth as possible, and I really saw a reduction in the size of my pores. The light tint is perfect for reducing redness, too. Overall, even though the sample was a little small, I had a great experience with this product.

Sadly Disappointed

I was really looking forward to trying this product, because I really respect a lot of what Benefit offers. Sadly, I don't notice any textural difference in my skin when wearing this vs. my regular primer, and Porefessional is noticeably less effective an maintaining my make-up throughout the day.

Does what it claims
Sampled

A little of this product goes a long way. I noticed that my pores disappeared and my make-up went on more soothly.
