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.

great product

I really had a good reaction to this product, it went on smoothly and made me feel like my makeup had a good base to make my pores look smaller

This primer is awesome. I never use primer but I am addicted now and will continue to use it. My makeup stayed on all day...looked fresh...polished...so pretty and the cream glides on like silk....feels so nice on my face

This primer is so nice. It doesn't feel like it is suffocating my skin, but it does a great job filling in the Grand Canyon-sized pores on my nose. It helps my makeup last longer too - I'll put a layer on if I expect to have a longer day. It's not an everyday product for me, but it is definitely a staple in my make up bag.

This brand is my favorite. I don't usually use a pore minimizer, but this works great as a primer.

Can't stand this stuff!

Yuck!! I really dislike this primer. I don't get what people see in it. I've tried it so many times thinking I might like it this time, but the same thing happens every time. No matter what else is on my face, It balls up into disgusting chunks and I wind up washing it off. I love primers and have tried a ton, many that have a similar texture and don't ball up,but this one consistently disappoints!

My pores

I have the worst biggest deepest pores, that constantly get clogged n i have black n white heads. I have to take care of them daily so they dont get clogged. I always need a good primer to use under my make up to keep the pores protected. if they are open they get greasy and start to build up oils. This is also tinted, so its beige, and you cant even tell you have it on. Soft, blends well and doesnt have a weird smell.

Heavier than I like. But felt silky and smooth after application.

i enjoy using this primer before applying make up. It leaves a smooth finish and holds make up throughout the day.

Ok

I didn't find that it covers pores and it doesn't help makeup last any longer. It did however provide a smooth surface helping my foundation blend more easily
