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.

Really great product

This stuff is so smooth and silky. I'm never sure if it actually makes a difference in the appearance of my pores though, so I have always been on the fence about it.

Fantastic Product

After using this product, I definitely noticed a difference in the visibility of my pores. It's great because it doubles as a primer and you can even reapply as needed throughout the day. I haven't used many other primers, so I don't have anything to compare it to, but I love the way it made my skin look and would definitely use it again.

Great!

I really liked the light feeling to the product and the fragrance was so delightful. It was a great addition under my foundation. It made my skin feel extra smooth.

Unsure if it works

I've never really understood the visible pore problem - maybe my pores are visible and I'm not dealing with it, but then that means I don't notice yours either! That being said, not sure what it's supposed to be making less visible, I can't definitively say if it achieves its claim.

So-So

This did an OK job of covering pores, I don't think this is something I'm ready to commit into my beauty routine.

Honestly A Great Product

I was skeptical over this product and I still slightly am, but that's mostly because I don't notice or use products geared towards treating pores. Aside from that, this product touches on the new style primers are taking on-- blurring. It worked like a charm and felt exactly like Smashbox's. Fantastic

Maybe it's me...

This just didn't do much for me when I used it. I wore it one day and my makeup didn't seem to go on any better or last longer. Normally I would try it a few more times, but right after using this I got a really nasty blemish right where the product was applied. I never break,out there, so it seems an unlikely coincidence. I think I'll steer clear.

Benefits are amazing

Lately I have become obsessed with this brand. I love using the primer before I apply foundation, especially in the summer months. It helps my makeup stay in place

Oily/combination skin type

This product worked for me. It covered up most of my pores as well as kept my skin oil-free for about 7 hrs after applying. My favorite thing about this primer is that I can apply it on top of my makeup for touch ups. This is the first primer that I've tried and I am still on the lookout for other primers for my skin type. But this is definitely going to be on my list of "to buy" products if I don't find another primer that works better than this.
