Benefit Cosmetics 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.

Creates a smooth complexion before foundation. Filled in my pores nicely.

While I do think this primer worked well, it didn't seem to react with my moisturizer well. When I put it on it would kind of pill and flake off.

This primer made my skin seem smoother and seemed to erase my pores! I would definitely buy this in the future.

best primer

This stuff is amazing. Best primer I have used. It goes on so smooth and is soft to the touch, not greasy. You can't really describe how soft it is until you try it. Definitely minimizes pores. My only issue is that it made me break out a bit. And it is pricey.

Good Primer
Sampled

I have never used a primer before and I like this! I think for my skin personally, I would need the matte one...but overall this product is good. I like the feeling of my skin after I apply it. I also feel like my makeup goes on smoother.

I use this primer in place of my foundation now. It goes on light and smooth and evens out my skin tone. I also have very breakout prone skin, and this does not break me out whatsoever.

Looks good but didn't last

For the sake of an honest review I have to say off the bat that I don't use primers so I have little to compare it against. With that disclaimer out of the way...I liked the way this product went on smoothly and initially made a visible difference in my pore size. I have enlarged pores and I have heard once they become enlarged you are pretty much a lifer unless you can splurge for laser treatments or peels, therefore, I really don't waste time trying to change that outside of cleansing and using masks. Well, I was happy to see that this primer left my skin looking smooth, almost like I had used a really good filter on my phone or airbrushed it. Sadly after I applied the rest of my make up it soon disappeared (or maybe my monster pores just sucked it up!). I could see my pores again within a half hr although I do have to say they looked a bit smaller. Bottom line is I wouldn't spend my own money or time on this product, but if primers are something you like I would recommend it.
