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.

Works well

This product works well at hiding pores. My only personal issue is that I have oily skin and felt that my skin got oliy quicker after using it. But it did a good job of blending out those pores!!

Pleasantly Surprised

I've used primers before and I'm not exactly a fan -- however I am a fan of apply a CC cream before makeup. I think this is the perfect balance of the two. I like the extremely light weight texture. It didn't feel like it was sitting on top of my skin, but that it actually blended in and I think my makeup went on smoother. I honestly didn't expect much from the product so this is definitely a happy surprise! I plan on purchasing the full size product.

Nice product

I like the silky smooth consistency of this product but I like the Dr. Brandt version more.

Nice

I received the Benefit Cosmetics POREfessional product in my sampling box. I think I enjoyed this product but the sample was so tiny (.1 oz) that it is hard to make an informed decision. It seemed to work as well as a primer would. Doesn't shrink the pores but helps to minimize the appearance of pores. Went on silky like most primers do and did not leave my skin feeling oily. I just wish the sample was larger so I could really get a better feel of this product.

Just okay

This product does what it says, but I am not hooked on it. I feel that I can find a better product.

Didn't work for me

This is one of the most touted product on Birchbox and elsewhere, so I was excited to give it a try. However, it didn't really work for me. It didn't blend into my skintone, and it didn't stay when I put my BB cream on top of it. I wish it worked on me as it did on everybody else.

It really works

I don't have huge pores or a "pore problem" but I tried this sample and it does really minimize the appearance of your pores. It creates a smooth finish to your makeup application.

POREfessional - Smooth!

I have used face primers in the past, and this is definitely a quality one. If you're looking to minimize the look of pores, this absolutely does the trick! It comes out of the tube tinted, but doesn't transfer color to your face. The texture is SO silky smooth. In regards to improving the lasting power of foundation, I didn't see much of a difference when using the primer vs not using one at all.

Love this stuff

Tried this product before and loved it...glad to get it again. Really helps minimize my pores, as well as fine lines on my forehead. Not too greasy for my skin and very smooth application.
