Benefit 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.

Like putting nothing on - in a bad way
Sampled

Maybe I am just not in-the-know enough about makeup, I don't usually bother with foundation or coverup or bronzer/blush etc, but I figured since I had this sample, I should at least give it a try.
The consistency is airy and ultra light, which seems like it would be great for,something that goes on your face, but when you put it on, you look absolutely the same as you did before. It blends so well that there aren't actually any smoothing/blurring/plumping benefits. I understand this isn't a foundation, but it seems like it is meant to at least disguise or minimize the look of pores. It doesn't. Save yourself some money and maybe try something else.

Smooth

This pore minimizer has a wonderful texture it is really so smooth you can't even feel it. My downside with this product is that I didn't really notice too much difference on my pores when I looked in the mirror.

Best primer for sensitive skin
Sampled

This pore minimizer is great for sensitive skin. No break out or rash. Smash box hurts my face, but this one glides on nice and smooth and make my face feel amazing. Make up holds well too.

Magic in a tube
Sampled

This stuff is the fountain of youth, ambrosia in a tube, completely magical. You smear this junk all over your face before you do your foundation and you are poreless! Its real life Photoshop and I can't get enough of it.

I'm not so sure...

OK so I thought the product did what it was supposed to do. It did minimize my pores, however it also left my foundation looking cakey after a few hours.

Great product!
Sampled

I have enjoyed using this product, it goes on smooth and helps my make-up stay how I want it to. I'm a stay at home mom, sometimes I just use it without makeup and it instantly makes my skin look clearer.
