Flawless-looking skin

This primer makes my makeup base looks smooth and flawless. It has a very smooth and light consistency, which I like. I use this often with the Matte Rescue Gel, since I have oily skin (on the T-zone, forehead, and chin) and my makeup will last the whole day without looking shiny and cakey. Definitely restocking!

This product really makes my skin look smooth and fair! I bought two of it! I love it and it really makes my pore minimize! I use it together with Benefit pore minimize primer to get a fantastic result. The texture is also really good and it gives me the poreless effect. Love it very much.

Amazing Product

I have really been loving this product.I feel like it's perfect for summer. It's super lightweight, evens out your skin, and is not oily at all ( I do set with powder). I have very large pores and I don't find that it really minimizes them, but it doesn't emphasize them either. Everyone is upset by the applicator, but I feel it's like the brush that comes in eyeshadow palettes... no one ever uses hem because they are junk. I've been using my Sephora total coverage sponge and haven't had any issues with it soaking up all the product. All in all I love this for a light summer foundation and I wear it to work all the time. It looks natural and never cakey. I wouldn't wear it in a night out or when I want fuller coverage, but I like lighter coverage foundations in warm weather. The shade range is a complete joke, but if you can find it in your shade, I think it's worth a shot.

Like it!

This is more like a tinted primer than an actual foundation. The texture is watery and best blended by the sponge attached to the product. The effect is smooth but not entirely "poreless', it looks like your skin but better. Coverage is light and sheer tho I haven't really tried building it up. Works best with the porefessional mattifying gel to make it last until 6 hours. I'm an NC40 and I have shade no. 3.

Good BB

As a brand, Benefit is already established for having quality make up, as well as exceptional services in their branches. One of their bestselling product lines is the Porefessional. This product is great because it promised to blur imperfections. It is a great product and it really minimizes the appearance of pores! I am very happy about this product.
