                  While wearing this I did not notice any difference in my pores are oily skin. The claims that this product will make pores look less visible are false for fair skin. Certain areas of my face are lighted then other areas. The tint was slightly darker then my skin tone making this hard to wear all over my face.

                  You can drive a truck through my pores! I found a retinol moisturizer helps but this Benefit product really ices the cake! I love it. I can and do use it with and without foundation for much smoother looking skin.
