I used to hate this primer. It's literally the only primer I own now and continue to buy. I use a pea size amount and put it where my pores are the biggest and spread it outward. Then the key I...

I generally like or love Benefit products, so bought a tube of this at Ulta hoping this would be a reasonable alternative to the primer I had been using that is available only by mail order. I...

Definitely has a silicone-y feel to it, so keep that in mind when pairing with foundation/BB/CC cream. Has a tint to it that is a decent match for my AAB/NC25 skin, and goes on sheer. Has a very...

I found this was pretty much useless, unless worn on its own, with just a little loose powder on top. It did a minimally ok job of smoothing out pores and making my skin look slightly more even....

When I first put this on, it seemed to hide my pores really well and impressed me. As soon as I put on my foundation it began to get patchy instantly. I gave it another shot and used my bb cream on...

This product is alright. I didn't notice any real difference when I used this because I could still see the pores on my nose. The product itself feels weird when it goes on your face. It feels like...

Porefessional minimizes my pores and mattifies my skin at the same time, without causing breakouts, something no other primer could do for me in the past. I find it's best to apply it to my fingers...

This is the first face product I have tried from Benefit. The price is around £20-27 here in the UK. I consider this expensive for a primer. Packaging is cute. Product feels very siliconey. I...
