                  Comments about Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional Face Primer Mini:

                  I received this as a free Ulta birthday gift a couple years back and I LOVE it (to this day) Because the trial tube is small I only used it for special occasions, my skin would always glow. It can last be all day and all night. It needed very minimal touch ups, probably moreso because of my foundation but my T zone was nowhere as oily as it was with other primers. I would so recommend this primer!!

                      I have had trouble with other primers leaving a residue showing, this one does not. It helps reduce the appearance of my pores on my nose/cheek area. I get decent wear time with this product.

                      I've been searching for a decent pore minimizing primer for years. Yes, I've always seen this one but have always been wary of the price. It is a tiny bottle for the price, but it is worth it. I use a small pea sized amount for my cheeks and my face has never looked smoother. It really does minimize those pores! Love it! Works great alone or with foundation on top!

Apply a thin layer of this PRO balm to clean, lightly moisturized skin. Pat lightly from the center of the face outward with fingertips. Wait seconds, then apply makeup as usual. Skin appears smooth & even! xoxo B
