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.

Magic eraser for pores
Sampled

This stuff works great to perfectly cover large pores - completely erased them and smoothes skin for a perfect matte finish. I love the texture - super silky, easy to apply, blends in quickly.

Love Benefit!

I love this product! I have tried it before and love the way it preps my skin before I put on make up. Would highly recommend it to all the gals out these that need a primer before they apply their makeup.

pore smoothing benefit porefession

I like the idea of this product, but I use a similar product that does the job better for my skin type. This felt smooth going on, but didn't seem to last on my skin. I don't like putting things on my face that seem like they simply disappear in 5 minutes :(

I got a sample with another Benefit product. It's only enough to use once but it seems to work!

Feels so smooth!

I put this on before putting on my CC cream and it made my face feel so smooth! It also helped to make my pores look smaller and my CC cream looked more natural.

This brand is awesome! They can do no wrong in my opinion. I already owned this product when I received it in my box and was happy to have more! It's part of my every day make up routine
