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.
Opinion: I 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.
