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.

I don't notice a difference

Doesn't do much for my pores, although it makes my skin really quite soft.

Didn't Blow My Mind

This product had a nice feel, it went on very silky and smooth. The results weren't anything special though. I really didn't feel like it minimized my pores any more than a regular concealer or good foundation.

POREFessional was great - never recieved Roller Lash Mascara

I liked the porefessional sample. It's like one step below BB cream. It made my poor look smaller and evened skin tone to a certain degree, but I would like more coverage than that. It looked really natural and felt light on. I could not rate the Roller Lash Mascara, since I never received it. If anyone from Birchbox sees this can you send me one?

love it!

I use this daily under my makeup and its the best so far that I have used. It doesnt ball up on my skin as others do and it makes the makeup go on flawless

Almost Perfect!

This product does a great job of providing coverage and serving as a mattifying primer for me. I wish the coverage was just a little bit more strong. Otherwise, its lightweight texture and smooth application make for a top-notch product!

Great mattifying primer

Gives a matte look without drying out your skin and minimizes the look of pores, great primer for those with combo/oily skin!

Benefit The POREfessional Review

I honestly wasn't sure what to make of this product when I received it in my box but I have fallen completely in love with it! The formula is silky and goes on smooth- it doesn't feel like I'm wearing anything, which is nice. It's really helped with making my makeup last, and minimizing the appearance of the large pores I have around my nose area. Overall, I highly recommend this item to anyone looking for a lightweight formula that holds strong throughout the day.

Good primer

Let me start by saying that I LOVE Benefit. I've been using their products for years, and I had tried a sample of the Porefessional in the past, but I kind of forgot about it so I was happy to see it in my box. I'm typically not a huge primer user. If I have a sample, I'll put it on, otherwise I kind of get by okay without it. That being said, this primer is nice. It goes on smooth, it's not irritating, and layers nicely under foundation. I like it better than the Smashbox primers I have tried because it feels lighter, less greasy. If you like/need primer, I would recommend giving this a try. If you're not a primer person, I would maybe skip this product, it's not a life changer.
