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 our pores. 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.

Breaks me out
Sampled

I've owned this in the past and tried it again when it came in my box, but it still breaks me out. Works really well, but hiding pores doesn't mean anything if it breaks you out in the process.

Nice base
Sampled

It is a fine base for make-up, but I didn't necessarily notice much difference to my pores. I have other products I like better.

Ho-Hum
Sampled

I don't have issues with large pores but decided to give the free sample a try. I do think it did give me a slightly smoother appearance, especially around my nose, but I didn't notice a huge improvement. Not looking to add another unnecessary step to my beauty routine, so I'll pass on this one.

Good primer, but no better than the rest

The POREfessional went on very smoothly, and did a good job at making my skin appear more even when worn under my normal foundation. However, I didn't think that it was any better at doing so than similar products on the market.
If you are looking for a pore minimizing primer this is a good one. But, if you already have a tried and true favorite, skip it.

Good primer
Sampled

I really like that this product is slightly tinted. I don't wear primers that often but I like this one for when I do. I think it is a bit pricey and I probably wouldn't purchase after I use up my sample. But it is definitely a good product.

Nice primer
Sampled

I found that this product worked as a nice matte primer under foundation. I didn't really find that it minimized my pores though.

Perfect Matte Finish
Sampled

This is great around my nose where I get the oiliest. Creates a perfect matte finish and I stay shine free for hours!
