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.

One of the best!

POREfessional is one of my favorite primers. I love the matte finish it has, and it really absorbs oils throughout the day. I like to mix it with my moisturizer in the mornings before I put on makeup. It seriously holds up all day, even through a workout. This being said, it doesn't seem to clog pores, or not mine at least. I have pretty sensitive skin, so other products cause breakouts the very next day. I highly recommend this primer for anyone with combination/oily skin.

It's ok
Purchased

I don't know why this is rated so high. It doesn't really refine pores and it rubs off very easily. It does have a great fresh scent and makes my face soft.

best primer for large poors/ uneven skin texture

It filled in the pores on my cheeks, chin and t-zone well. It melted onto my face and dried nicely, no weird lube feeling on my finger after :)

Smooth finish
SampledPurchased

This is a great product for the price. I have large pores so this products is important for me. I think it gives me a smooth surface to work with when applying makeup. It reduces the appearance of pores but doesn't seem to clog them. I have washed my face as usual and didn't see any increase in blemishes. Creates a smooth surface without being greasy.

I much rather prefer the smashbox pore minimizing primer. the porefessional is too silicone feeling and doesn't really do the job.

8 out of 10

I really do like this primer, it goes on effortlessly and leaves a pretty good finish. But I just don't think it's worth the repurchase!

Works well
Purchased

I have HUGE pores and this product helps cover them up. It also smooths out my skin and seems to take away some redness. I like to wear this when I am not wearing makeup as well. Even though it's pricey it will last you FOREVER so it's worth the buy.

Holy Grail

This primer does exactly what it claims to do. I have combo/oily skin and this is one of the only primers that actually minimizes the appearance of my pores without turning my face into an oil slick.
