Excellent primer that helps with smoothing the skin so that the foundation is applied nicely without it settling into the pores. I would highly recommend it for oily skin. As for those who have big pores , I personally do not have this issue and therefore cannot say if it does minimise your pores. My foundation also seems to last longer with this on ☺️ It is however on the pricier side hence why I took a star out.

I forgot how much I loved this! Recently found it in my makeup draw and its great! My face feels silky smooth after applying it and it minimises my pores. My foundation just goes on so much better when using it and I find my face isn't as shiny either.

This primer is good for in the summer, it’s minimises the size of pores on your face and helps makeup apply better to the skin as the skin doesn’t look as texturised. For me, this was good in summer where I tend to get more oily skin. However, I felt that the primer didn’t last me that long and that it was very drying on my skin so it was more difficult for me to apply foundation on the top. If you have more oily skin then I’d recommend but any dry skin then I’d steer away as it did make my foundation crack in certain places.

This is a wonderful primer! I absolutely love it! The application is very smooth and makes my skin feel so soft! It also lasts a very long time and a little bit of it covers quite a large area of the face. I would definitely recommend anyone looking for a primer to get this product.

Now don’t get me wrong I LOVE benefit cosmetics but this product was not for me :(
I feel as though when I applied it under my concealer it made it look rough and bumpy and when I went to apply concealer or foundation to my nose after priming, it felt like it slipped off and didn’t last long at all :(
It feels quite greasy when going onto my skin, this isn’t because of oil however because it tends to only be my forehead and eyelids that are oily; my nose is quite normal, although the product itself isn’t my favourite the packaging I can’t falut whatsoever if you buy the full size one it lasts a very long time depending on how much you use it, before you buy the full size one you can buy the mini version as more of a tester. With this product I would definitely recommend doing that because of the mixed feelings people have, altough lots of people swear by this product it just isn’t for me :(

Although I am oily around the nose and dry around the rest of my skin, this product dried my nose and caused irritation. It did not prevent shine in my opinion and gave a rough texture below foundation and powder. Although others swear by this primer, girls and boys around me who have used this agree with me and would not buy again.

Great for T-zone to control oil and minimise pores. Foundations sit nicer in skin when I use this primer. I am honest I am not reaching for any other since I bought this primer and for texture skin is great. I give it 4 star because I think they exaggerated on the price, a tube goes a long way... oil free and doesn’t clog pores so it’s a safe option for acne prone skin. But it’s not a miracle... if we use an amplifier mirror we can still see our pores and we need to accept them cause we need them to exist.

This primer has a nice texture and does somewhat minimise the appearance of pores however I can't wear this with foundation all day without having to re-apply powder as the oils in my skin become really prominent throughout the day starting to break apart my foundation; as I have combination/ oily skin. I don't think this primer is best suited for people with oily skin but would be good for people with normal skin.

This is probably my favourite primer. It's a cute peachy colour but goes onto the skin clear and makes my skin feel silky like Smashbox's best seller. I wouldn't say pores are an issue for me and this didn't do a lot, but it did do more than others to make them look smaller. My makeup stayed smooth for hours with this so it's great for longevity. I've knocked a star off for the price, I think I'd look around for discounts rather than pay £27! But this is a primer I'd recommend and can see why it's a best seller.

This came with me in the benefit beauty school knockouts kit and it was my favourite thing there! It really helps minimise your pores and feels light on your skin. It also feels really smooth when applying and I absolutely love it!

This is a really nice primer and I love to use it however I have had to stop using it on my nose as it made me go quite oily and shiny there throughout the day. I think it does a nice job at filling in my pores and makes my foundation look even better as long as its not on my nose.

I used this from my friend and it made my makeup go on so flawlessy. It is a perfect base and you dont need much either! Its very smooth and isnt tacky atall, great at filling in pores and evening my skin out!

This is a good primer. It makes your skin feel silky and smooth and does blur the look of enlarged pores but as with most other primers you can still see them but this is one of the best I’ve used. I have and would repurchase this product.
