I find this product to be very useful and since originally receiving a sample of it about 2 years ago, I have now repurchased it twice.
I use it on pretty much a daily bases and find that it does wonders for my skin. It covers any visible pores and smoothens my skin. It creates a base for my foundation and I find that y make-up stays on longer because of it.
I like the packaging and find the tube easy to use.
However, I do think that this product's price lets it down. Although Benefit is a fairly high-end brand, I believe that they have priced this product too highly for what it is. I live in Ireland and it costs me about €30 to buy it if I didn't find the product so good, I definitely would not be willing to spend that amount of money.
Overall, a really good product. I would recommend it to anyone out there who would like their skin to be smoother and softer and their pores to be visibly reduced.
I don't get the hype.
Saw it promoted so heavily and so much hype by beauty "gurus" and so thought it must be the best product ever!! So guess who went ahead and ordered the big jumbo size!!
IT feels nice on but gives a really dull appearance on the skin, catching every little imperfection, Have only kept it on my face all day a couple of times. I usually take it off after a while because I don't like the look of it. I have not used it on its own only under liquid foundation and im not super impressed. I don't hate it.. I just don't feel like it does all that much for me other than mattify a bit. And my makeup doesn't feel like it "sticks" to my face
I don't HATE it but its just not as good as so many of their other products. Definitely a miss for dry skin types.
Will stick to my smashbox one
I wanted this product for months, and finally, I bought it. I was so excited. I ran right home and applied it over my -- smooth as butter, and my pores were all but invisible!
Then ten minutes passed. Suddenly, my pores were back, and my face was half an inch lower. I tried it a few more times, but no dice. It's a slick, oily mess.
I'm so disappointed. I thought I'd love it. What I mean is, I threw out the receipt. Argh!
I was so upset with this product!!
It did absolutely nothing for me.
Although it did feel good, it did nothing for my pore size or appearance. The staying power was so bad too!
Expensive pore clogger. The product gives an instant result but does not last. Pores are filled immediately but after some time the pores are showing. Makes me think that the primer has sink deep into the pores. Very drying.
I dont get it. AT ALL. Feel like ive tried everything with this, used my 20 foundations on top of it, both oil based, water based, wax based and mineral ... and i cant feel or see a difference. I have combination skin with visible pores ... I wish i could make it work, but this is rubbish on me.
As much as I wanted to love this because of the packaging, it just didn't work well
The powder texture didn't feel right and it is too creamy and too thick.
It doesn't feel natural enough for me. I recommend buy other skin smoothing pore hiding product instead of this one. this doesn't worth the money.
I swear by this primer! It really does reduce the size of my pores & fine lines. Sometimes if I don't feel like putting much makeup on I will put some of this on & a little concealer & I look tons better lol! I will keep buying even though it last me forever you only need the size of a pea!
Love this product!! Not only does it reduce the appearance of pores, but it's a primer too - what more could you want?? I wear this everyday, I find it goes on very smooth and helps with easy appliance for my foundation and helps it stay on all day. It lasts for a very long time, as you don't need much to make a difference. When first applied it doesn't seem to have made much difference, however after foundation your pores will be virtually non-existent!
LOOOOVE this stuff!!!
As I've gotten older, my pores have gotten somewhat visible on my nose, forehead, & apples of my cheeks. I heard/read this is very good for filling them in, so I gave it a try when I saw it at Ulta with a little "bonus" of the "It's Potent" eye cream (will review separately). It's a little pricey, but you don't have to use much, so the tube should last a while.
This stuff does what it says! It fills in my pores making them invisible. I've even used it to fill in a hole from a pimple that I had picked at (I know, my bad!) that was healing & it even filled in that hole. Awesome! You can use this under your makeup or over it, so if you find that during the day, you need a touch up, you can apply it over your makeup. I've tried it, & it worked just as well as it does when I put it on under my makeup.
This is not meant to be an all over face primer. If you look at the little insert that comes inside the box, it even shows where it's intended to be used. I still use a separate primer on the rest of my face.
I adore this, & will continue to repurchase. :)
