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 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.

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.

I love the POREfessional

This is basically a makeup primer that doubles up because it seriously reduces the visibility of pores. Ever since trying it, I don't go a day without putting this on under my makeup. You can also put it on during the day as needed too!

Deserves to be tried

My sister recommended this product to me (I had been using Smashbox's Photo Finish primer for a few years). This product is AMAZING! By far the best from Benefit. It's incredibly smooth on the face and doesn't give you a greasy feeling. I usually wear under foundation but somedays I wear it alone - it's that good! Makes me feel delicate and clean.

good stuff, but nothing different

I think that this was a good product -- it really did make my pores invisible and make my skin look very smooth. That being said, I think this is pretty much what each one of these products does. Makeup Forever's primer, as well as most other primers I've ever used, do the exact same thing.

Good Stuff

I love trying new primers, and as I've gotten older I need ones that help minimize my pores. This one definitely did the trick.

Fav Primer

This primer actually DOES everything it says it does! It's silky texture dries to a matte finish, masks pores and evens skin tone leaving a beautiful finish that is great worn alone or as a base for makeup.

Loved it!

I don't usually use a product like this but I will definitely start! It really reduced the size of my pores around my nose and forehead. It also worked well as a base for my concealer. I loved it!

Multiple uses!

I love that this can be used under or over my make-up. It was perfect for eliminating shine on my face when I needed an afternoon touch up. I also like the formula how it feels on my skin.

Noticeable difference

I love all benefit products especially this one. Super lightweight and doesn't feel heavy on my skin. My pores look smoother and I can use less foundation after using this for a week

I love Benefis pore professional. It makes your skin feel incredibly smooth/soft and actually does dramatically decrease the appearance of pores. Smells great. Wonderful product.
