Benefit Pore Professional Primer Review


Benefit Pore Professional Primer


Hi Makeupholics,

In recent results of the Loreal poll – nearly four in 10 women feel there pores are big, nearly half of U.S women would give up something in exchange for smaller pores- 23 percent would give up alcohol for a year, 17 percent would give up social media for a year, and 11 percent would give up shaving their legs for a year, nearly one in ten women avoid taking selfies due to pore size, more than one in ten women think about pore size while on date and admit to thinking about the size of their pores at least once a day, every day.

So now you can understand well that today’s review is about a product related to large pores.

About Benefit Pore Professional Primer:

Quickly minimizes the appearance of pores and fine lines and help makeup stay put with this priming phenomenon. The silky and lightweight formula can be worn under makeup to create a smoother-than-smooth canvas or used throughout the day to mattify shine and touch up problem areas. It’s so translucent, no one will know you’re wearing anything! The oil-free formula contains vitamin E, which is known to protect skin from free radicals.

Directions to use:

To prime in the morning: Apply a thin layer of this PRO balm to moisturized skin from the center of the face outward. Wait a few seconds and apply makeup as usual or wear alone.
-To touch up over makeup: If pores come out of hiding, pat delicately over makeup on problem areas and blend. Remember, just a dab will do ya!
To smooth on a brighter face: Give your POREfect complexion an instant perk-me-up! Layer the POREfessional smoothing balm over “That Gal” Brightening Face Primer.
To lock down your look: To help foundation stay put, always start with the POREfessional.

Then blend Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow from the center of the face, out. Skin will look smooth and flawless all day long.
To spot-conceal: Apply the POREfessional over blemishes, then blend Boi-ing on top. It’ll keep skin looking smooth and lock the industrial-strength concealer in place.
To rock the photo op: Prime face with the POREfessional to minimize the look of pores and mattify skin. Apply your favorite Benefit makeup products…then reapply the POREfessional. The lens will love you!

Price:    $31.00 for 22 ml.


Benefit Primer Pore Professional


Packaging: It is a blue color sleek tube with black color cap. The screw mechanism cap fits tightly and assures no leakage while travelling. I love benefit product packaging; they are completely different from others. Totally chic types!

My Experience with Benefit Pore Professional Primer:

I had seen this in Sephora so many times but never thought of trying it. As I don’t actually have large pores, so what is the point of using pore minimizing product!!!

There was a time when I visited Sephora just for time pass when I somehow applied this on my face on the nose and  couldn’t believe the amazing effects. As I already had makeup on so I just patted this on my face and Voila! Magic! I couldn’t stop myself from buying this professional primer.

It has very light weight formula with mild fragrance which fades away immediately after applying. It is ultra smooth, non- greasy and makes my skin look matte upon application. I usually apply this under my foundation and it covers 90% of my pores. Well,it doesn’t make my makeup stay for  longer durations.

I use this alone on normal days when I don’t apply foundation or BB cream and it works like a charm. Just a little more than pea size amount is sufficient to cover all the pores on my face.

It covers my pores for 8-10 hours on my combination skin. I can say on oily skin, it will stay put up to 6 hours and on dry skin probably more.

It can layer over the foundation, so if one wants more than 10 hours staying power, then top it over the foundation just as I prefer to do sometimes. In one sentence, all I can say is that this is a pro to minimize pores and imperfections smoothly.
