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.

This is the best, i use it alone or under my foundation. Its so silky on your skin, and lightweight.

Ok, but not great
Sampled

I think this primer is fine for a primer. It goes on well and doesn't feel greasy at all. I don't see the point of it because I can't tell the difference between when I'm wearing it and when I'm not.

not a fan of face primers
Sampled

I really do not see the point of face primers. I use cleanser, toner and moisturizer by the time I apply my makeup my face is primed already.

just ok
Sampled

this was just ok - I typically don't have issues with my pores so I would not buy this for myself. I know this is a good brand and typically like their products but not something I personally would need or use.

I've tried other pore reducing/matte finish products, and this is the one that works best. I love it. Always excited to get it

Really liked this a lot.
Sampled

I liked how it went on smooth and a little went a long way. Felt like it worked really well around my nose area and just to even out my skin tone.

very effective

while this is the 5th sample Of this product I have received, I'm not mad about it! It works very well at concealing pores and ensuring foundation goes on smooth. It smells fresh and isnt too heavy

it's very specialized
Sampled

I'm sure this primer works wonderfully for people with large pores and/or fine lines, but this just pills all over my skin and makes my dry patches stick up.

Love this product. I'm about to be 40 & definitely feel the need for a good primer. Have used several primers & I keep coming back to this one. Goes on smooth without feeling heavy, does not dry out my skin either. I work 12 hour shifts & it manages to help keep my makeup on for almost the whole shift!
