This product is suitable for all skin types. It is oil free which makes it suitable with oily skin or skin prone to acne. We tested this product on sensitive skin.

Effect:

We tested the “POREfessional Face Primer” by Benefit Cosmetics on its own and under makeup. The product was easy to apply, and its effects were visible within moments of application. When we tested the “POREfessional Face Primer” on its own, we found that it minimizes the appearance of pores, it reduces redness and the appearance of blemishes and erases fine lines. The product also evened out the skin tone and gave an almost airbrushed effect.
When tested under makeup, the “POREfessional Face Primer” prolonged the hold of makeup and prevented it from fading quickly. It also provided a clear face for makeup application. The product also smoothed out the skin and gave it a nice glow.
We recommend treating primers like instant fix products and not as long-term solutions for the reduction of blemishes. Instead, we recommend a steady moisturizing routine and using face care creams.

Price:

The “POREfessional Face Primer” by Benefit Cosmetics retails at a market price of $45.3/22mL which is pricier than other products in the same range such as Max Factor’s “Miracle Prep” which costs $24/30mL. It is also pricier than products in another range like Maybelline’s “Master Primer” which sells at $12/30mL.

    It leaves my skin feeling softer and more matte, I haven’t used it with makeup yet, so will have to wait and see. But used alone it does actually minimize the look of pores and gives a soft matte look to the skin.
    I did not feel that it is THAT special as a primer to match it’s price point. It’s quite expensive for a primer (19$ for the mini tube of 7.5 mL).
    However I’m attracted to beautiful packaging and Benefit do know their business when it comes to pretty packages, plus i heard a lot about it that’s why i got it, but I don’t think I would go for it again, I think I would try other primers till I find the one for me.

    Experience with this primer

    I was super excited to try this primer out, as I have heard lots of positive reviews about it, but it was a nightmare to ny skin, especially on the cheeks area.
    It made my foundation so greasy and didn’t set at all.
    It is a good primer, but it didn’t suit my combination skin.

    Yes Maya eter was the inspiration for me to try this primer and I fell in love with it. It definitely hides pores and has a nice finish. A makeup artist used it on my face and tbh I loved it but I think there are other primers that have the same effect and are much lower in price!
