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.

Awesome Primer!

This primer can be used in so many ways. Alone. Under makeup. Touch up without smudging!

Amazing!
Sampled

I have always been skeptical about primers because I have acne prone skin, but this product is simply amazing. Keeps makeup perfectly set on my face almost all day long and prevents that shiny look that you get after a couple hours of wearing foundation. And does not make me break out! Especially great for summer. I will definitely buy the full size once I finish the sample.

No difference
Sampled

I didn’t see a difference in the makeup wear or pore size. I have texture and large pores in my t zone. The product visibly reduced the pores on my nose, but that was hit. Wasn’t worth the hype for me :(

Quality = Pricey
Sampled

I love a good primer but the price tag can be a bit much for me. It's a really high quality product from a really great brand, but for me personally it's not worth the price tag.

Great pore product!
Sampled

OMG, THE BEST. I loved this product. It does wonders for faces that have slighter bigger pores and draws them out. It’s a great product to use if you’ve never tried it but also one you should definitely keep buying!

Works well
Sampled

Primes nicely without create a “flat” matte appearance. Wasn’t greasy, and also didn’t dry skin out. I used it around my eyes, and it primed my eye makeup nicely and it stayed in place all day. $30 is a lot, but I’m still considering buying it.

It worked ok
Sampled

It didn’t exactly make my pores vanish, but it did work well for what it is. I used it as a base with finishing powder and was happy with my results.
