Review: Benefit – the Pore fessional Face Primer

Alright – so I have been eyeing Benefits Porefessional Face Primer for the last couple of years, I have heard great things about it, and known about its cult following. I never really had a problem with big pores, but now that I am in my early 30’s, the pores are starting to show. I bought the smaller size of this product from Sephora to give it a try. I have been using this product for about a month now and here are my thoughts about it. 

Product Claims: The product claims to minimize the appearance of pores and fine lines. It also claims to mattify shine.

This is the texture of the primer.


OpinionI really wanted to love this product. I honestly can’t say it minimizes the appearance of pores. My pores looked as visible with this on than without. It does have a nice matte texture and comes on very smooth to create a lovely canvas for your foundation. Given the product’s main claim of minimizing pores, it doesn’t work as promised. If you are looking for a primer, you are probably better off using Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer, which I have been using for years and really like. I won’t be purchasing this product again.
