Benefit Porefessional Pro Balm: A quick review

Benefit Porefessional Pro Balm: A quick review

What it is: Benefit Porefessional Pro Balm is a smoothing balm that helps to reduce the look of pores and fine lines. 

Beauty bonus: The silky texture leaves skin feeling velvety and not at all greasy. 

Beauty bummer: This balm is good — but it’s not magic. You have to approach this realistically, realizing that pores will not completely disappear. 

Overall: This balm feels great on the skin. 

We used it alone without foundation over top to get a better feel of whether or not it lived up to its claims. 

It did not look cakey or greasy throughout the day. This lightweight cream is billed as a primer as well as a pore minimizer, and by the feel of it (think a little like eyeshadow primer), it would also do a great job keeping foundation looking fresh. 

Would recommend? Yes 
Price: $37 
Where to buy: Sephora
