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.

I was excited to get this in my box because I've been wanting to try this product for a long time, but I just never got around to purchasing it. As a person with oily skin and large pores, I was hoping that Porefessional would be the miracle primer that so many people claim it to be. Unfortunately, after using this, I noticed absolutely no difference compared to applying no primer whatsoever. I also tried this on one half of my face and a different primer (that does not claim to reduce pore size) on the other half, and the Porefessional side actually looked worse. I'm happy for the ppl that this product works for, but unfortunately I am not one of them.

This worked So much better than the competition! I have oily skin and it doesn't make it worse like most, it may even help keep the oil down, or maybe it just looks so much better I think that. I plan on adding this to my daily primping- even without makeup it makes you look beautiful! Love it!

This primer is very moisturizing and makes applying makeup so much smoother. I will definitely buy once this sample runs out.

It's just Ok.

I couldn't really tell a difference, and it kind of felt a little cakey.

I have always had large pores and I am a little self conscious about it. I love that this product makes my large pores less noticeable. I'm so glad this came in my box!

Not a good match with my foundation

I'm not a huge fan of how this paired with my mineral foundation. Much more likely to wear it on its own.

I love this primer, it's not too greasy and really fills in the pores without making the skin look too cakey!

I will certainly be purchasing this product when the sample runs out - THANK YOU!!!
