Birchbox Breakdown

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.

How it Works

The silky, oil-free formula diffuses pores and fine lines for an “airbrushed” finish. It goes on sheer, leaving skin even and smooth. Don’t we all love instant gratification?

How to Use

As a primer, apply a fine layer on clean or moisturized skin, starting from the center of your face and working outwards. Pat to blend. Feel free to use for midday touch-ups too — just dab a pea-size amount over your makeup and blend.

This product provides great coverage and reduces appearance of pores. It is a light color which works well under my base.

I've tried this product before and enjoyed it. After getting again i realize how awesome it is. i have really big pores and this does a great job at minimizing them. It is definitely as described a "translucent balm to shrink" pores

POREfessional is killer!
Sampled

Wow! I've tried quite a few primers and usually disappointed because of my sweaty, large-pored skin. I put on my nose first and instant smoothness with great matte. I was surprised to see a color, but it blended in perfectly without any chalkiness. I'm going to try this more this week when our weather hits 80+. I love an idea of a touchup during the day without cakiness. There is a perfumy aroma, but it didn't bug me as much as it did others. Decent size sample and I may just end up purchasing. Thanks, BB!

Good for under makeup. Felt a lot like Vaseline on.

My new foundation
SampledPurchased

I typically don't use foundation since it is challenging to find one for oily skin. This is the perfect texture and color for my skin. It blended in easily, smoothly, and helped keep my makeup set all day. It actually made my makeup look better. The concentration is perfect, nice and light. Noticeable difference in just 1-2 uses. It doesn't feel like an extra step, this product is a necessary step to having your makeup look fresh, natural, and even all day long.

Benefit's the Bomb....

I have tried a lot of pore minimizers and LOVE this product to wear alone or under makeup! Benefit does it again.

New primer!
Sampled

I love this pore reducer, not only that it really does minimize my pores, but because it has doubled as a primer for me! It's so soft and silky, I apply it all over and then go on with my normal makeup routine. It allows my skin to look clearer while providing a base for my foundation. Love it! Will be purchasing the full-size when my sample runs out (which may take a while because you don't need a lot of it to get the job done)!
