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.

good, but gives horrible acne
Sampled

I know everyone’s skin reacts differently to different products, but this one was exceptionally irritating. My theory is that it works to minimize pores by clogging them and my skin just couldn’t deal. Looks beautiful though.

I would wear this alone!
Sampled

I'm not a huge fan of foundations/powders, so I'd actually use this product alone, it has great shine control!

Nice but freakin tiny
Sampled

I tried this product this morning. It was smooth and cream colored. The sample bottle is the tiniest bottle I have ever seen. To the point of being laughable ridiculous. I'll have to see how my skin reacts to the product over a couple days (if there's even enough product to last more than two) before I decide whether to buy a bigger bottle.

This product was great for a base to add foundation, smoothed out any lines and imperfections. Really nice texture and didn't clog pores,

This is the BEST!
Sampled

I'd received a sample of this about a year ago and I loved it so much that I went out and purchased it. So tickled to get a sample in this month's box! Works very well for dry or oily skin and doesn't leave my skin feeling gross. Awesome stuff!

LOVE!

I was surprised to find out this was tinted - it didn't say so in the Birchbox description. BUT - it was a fantastic replacement for foundation, nice and light, evened my skin tone and totally blurred out appearance of pores.

Great Product

Its a very small sample but since its a primer, it will last for several uses. I love how soft it makes your skin feel when applying and it smells really good.

Bought it at Sephora and love my new sample
Sampled

I bought this at Sephora a couple months ago and really liked it so I am glad I got it as a sample in my box this past month. I am going to buy the big bottle of it at some point but the smaller size and sample are perfect for now since a little goes a long way.
