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.

Smooth product

This product goes on super smooth, and dries nicely. I didn't really notice any effects though, so I don't think I would buy it.

Decent Primer
Sampled

I can't say it minimized my pores or anything, but I certainly thought it was a decent primer. It did not clog up my skin like some other primers do, though my face did look a little shiny after.

Love Benefit Products

I love Benefit products, but this is not something that I would necessarily use. I don't have a problem with big pores or feel that they need to be concealed or made smaller?!

Dries out skin
Sampled

I bought this product to try a while ago, and it does hide pores beautifully. However, over time through out the day my face becomes dry and Mattie. Especially when using under my foundation. I have a very dry T zone and the matte formation causes my under eye and forehead to look very wrinkled and dry. Thank you for the sample though. I have a friend my really benifit from this product.

Doesn't stay on well
Sampled

It's effective but it doesn't last and come right off on my glasses. Bummer because I like the way it makes my skin look.

Nice primer
Sampled

This is a really nice primer and goes on smooth and matte. I don't know if it minimizes the appearance of pores yet, as I haven't used a bunch of times, but I hope it works ;)

Love this stuff!
Sampled

Love this product! It goes on great and is very smooth, and minimizes the appearance of my pores, as well as fine lines around my eyes. It also seems to help my foundation go on more evenly and smoothly. Definitely recommend!

I own this primer already and I love it. I have some large noticeable pores on my nose and this product works great to help disguise them.

I wish that they would stop sending tiny samples. From what I could tell the product worked well
