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.

Didn't think this was all that's great. Made my face look too matte, and very dull.

Not the greatest.
Sampled

Not the greatest primer that i've ever used. It wasn't bad. It just wasn't great.

This is just OK

I like the texture of this cream. The way it leaves your skin feeling, however, I didn't see much of a difference.

Pores?

Love. Love. Love. This primer. Great coverage, makes my skin feel silky. Powder and liquid foundation are great over it. Plus, I love the cute bottle!

Great Results

There's a reason this primer gets so many raves. It does all it claims to do. Feels silky on the skin, not over-drying like some other pore-refining primers can. Keeps my face shine-free all day and keeps my makeup in place nicely.

Not for me
Sampled

I use two serums on my face, then moisturizer, then I tried the porefessional primer. It smoothed on just fine at first, but started balling/piling when I blended my makeup in and I felt like I had too much gunk on my face. Also, it smells like an old woman who wears too much perfume.

Finally Flawless
Sampled

Received this as a sample and really did not think it would make THAT much of a difference on my skin, but it really did. It went on sheer and felt very lightweight. The true magic, however, and the proof that it did make a difference was when I applied my foundation. It seemed to 'hide' my larger pores so well that i couldn't even see them once my foundation was applied. This is normally not the case for me. It even filled old scarring from my having the chicken pox. I felt flawless and even younger.... a more perfected face forward, so to speak.The best part is I had no oily shine all day and my makeup always looked fresh and just applied. Great product.

Love this product works great

This product works like magic. I really didn't believe it would work as well as it claimed too but it did. Will be buying the full size once my sample is done. Thanks Birchbox!!

It did the job, but I'm not used to using a product like this. I will continue to use my sample and figure out if it's for me or not. It was thicker, but it still looked nice with concealer and cover up over it.
