”Love that it’s: “Only a small bit needed””
”I had oily skin (particularly on my forehead) for so long and didn’t know how to treat it. I tried this primer and from the first use, my skin wasn’t oily at all. Only use a small bit and it lasts from 7am to 7pm easily. I will be buying in bulk!”

Prime in the A.M. Apply a thin layer of this PRO balm to clean, lightly moisturized skin. Using fingertips, pat lightly from the center of the face moving outward. Apply makeup as usual. Reapply whenever pores come out of hiding. Pat delicately over makeup and blend.
Founded by successful models-turned-makeup artists Jean and Jane Ford, Benefit was built on the premise that “makeup doesn’t have to be serious to look good.” For the twin Fords, laughter was always the best cosmetic, a belief they infused into each of their products from the get-go. Just check out the quirky packaging and cheeky labels that accompany Benefit’s beauty boosters and you’ll get the drift! Today, the mega-brand is known for its insta-pretty solutions and ever-playful approach to beauty.
Although this is being compared to Quick FX [drug store brand], this works way better in my opinion. This flawlessly hides my pores, and stays on my skin despite humidity and it doesn't make me oil that much. This also doesn't make my nose itchy like the other brand mentioned. It feels like silk when being applied then turns to sort of like my second skin once it's on.about 1 month ago
On my 2nd or 3rd tube of this cult fave already and no other product comes close to how this works! It quickly blurs out my blemishes and imperfections which makes it perfect for a makeup base. It works like a charm with people who are problematic with their pores too. Really recommend this!3 months ago
I love the matte feel of the product, it's not sticky and heavy on the face compared to other brands. it really helps to keep my makeup on and smells great! it creates a shinny but not oily effect on the face. my face feels smooth and fresh. I don't use too much make up, but I would def recommend this.3 months ago
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!4 months ago
Quickly minimize the appearance of pores & fine lines for smoother-than-smooth skin! Apply this silky, lightweight balm alone, under or over makeup. The translucent formula contains a vitamin E derivative known to protect skin from free radicals. It's as good as everyone raves about. Porefessional Face Primer is an awesome product.4 months ago
Put this on and your skin feels velvety smooth. I love how it also controlled oil for me, although I use a matte foundation so maybe they just work even better together. I've been blotting less and less. I've read about the rave reviews for this for years but only bought it recently. After experiencing the velvety feel from the smaller travel size, I went full size. Yas. Gave the travel size to my sister, haha. May be too drying for dry skin. I noticed dry patches on me and my sister in our U areas. But we solve that easily with a nice moisturizer (COSRX 96% snail serum).4 months ago
