Benefit The POREfessional

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 am always searching for a product that will make improve my complexion but not hide my freckles. This is that product! I now use it basically every day as a base. My pores disappear and my skin even feels softer! It feels like you are spreading cashmere across your face. This is one of the first products I IMMEDIATELY bought after using the sample.

the original primer could use some updating

porefessional primer was the first primer i ever used on a regular basis. since then, however, primers have come a long way - color adjusting, illuminating, spf, etc. while the porefessional still does the job, i would rather use products that serve more than one purpose.

Not a fan

I was excited to see the primer in my May box but upon use I wasn't impressed. I have used a few other primers and liked the results or how they extended the wear of my makeup but this benefit primer didn't impress me. I did try this primer with 4 different foundations (I like options) but I did not like it with any of them. Also this review moved into the benefit rollerlash mascara -- which I did not receive or try. I only tried the primer.

Doesn't actually work as a primer...

I can't speak to whether or not this reduces pores, but I can say that this does the opposite of what you want a primer to do. Rather than make my foundation (Bobbi Brown) go on easier, it made it go on patchier. I am still looking for my go-to primer and this isn't it.

Works rather well

I like this product and feel like it works really well, but fortunately for me, pores aren't really a problem, so I don't use anything like this on a regular basis. The texture is really nice, though, and for someone who needs it, I would recommend this product.

Love the way this feels. Goes on super smooth. Evens out my skin in certain area like my T zone.

Didn't work for me

I know nearly everyone loves the Porefessional, but it didn't stand out to me. I have combination skin, which was made greasier by this product, and I didn't notice a difference in the appearance of pores.
