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.

Not for me

Let me preface this by saying, I do not love Benefit products as a general rule. I feel that they are not high quality and long lasting. I've had this primer before and it makes my face feel too weird. I also don't need something to reduce pores.

I've always liked this product, although it doesn't necessarily "hide" pores completely. I like it's light feel.. a little bit does the trick. It looks tinted, but blends nicely. It feels a bit greasy , and trying to figure out if I should apply it before or after bb/cc cream- using it alone doesn't provide enough coverage

Will definitely purchase this product. So light, perfect under foundation, really minimizes your pores, hides your small lines and makes your skin look flawless. !!!

Great product

This product was amazing on minimizing my pores. Great for dry skin. I wouldn't recommend it for oily skin.

Love this product! My foundation went on very smoothly. It's very light and doesn't cause makeup to cake up in spots.My daughter tried it as well and loves it.

Meh...the ubiquitous sample

I have too many minis of this product and haven't been able to decide if a) it helps my skin or not, b) if it makes me break out, and c) if a person really needs a primer at all! Could have done without this one very easily.

It's better than drug store primer but not so much I'd pay the price tag.

I wish they would come out with a darker tint...I love the formula but it's so light on my skin.
