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.

So-so

I was excited for this sample as I have been considering a purchase in the past. I liked it, but didn't love it. Overall it did a decent job but with so many brands out there I might try a few more before committing. I used to only use benefit for my cosmetics but lately they have been letting me down.

Not a fan

I know this is product has a cult like following but it doesn't work well on my combo skin. It doesn't fill in pores nor makes my makeup last longer

Great Primer

I'd been wanting to try this product for a while now, so I was super happy to receive it in this month's box! I think it works great as a primer, it goes on silky smooth. But disappointingly, I feel like I didn't notice much change in the visibility of my pores, which is the main purpose of the product.

Pretty Effective

I thought it worked really well - but currently I use Kiehl's Micro-Blur Skin Perfector which I prefer.

Very Nice

I've always wanted to try POREfessional so I was very happy to receive a sample. It's awesome!! Light weight and very effective. This will become a staple item in my daily routine.

Ugh.

I loathed this product. I think it actually made my skin look WORSE. My pores aren't usually a problem, but after putting this on, they were visibly weird and gunky, filled up with glop, even under foundation. I washed it off within 5 minutes.

Actually hides pores!

I was very impressed by this product. It went on smoothly and I could actually see a difference in the size of my pores!

it's like nothing you've ever felt before
Sampled

This is awesome. It glides on like it's not there, but it is. It's like this instant new layer of skin that you can't feel. So it is not heavy, or oily at all. This is awesome.

Yeah!

I like getting a nice brand like this from Birchbox. Sometimes it's these brands I've never heard of before :) I enjoy Benefit and this primer.

Best primer

I love this primer. It's not greasy and my skin tone looks even after using this. A little goes a long way and my foundation stays put even in hot weather.
