Birchbox Breakdown

Of all the beauty minefields out there, visible pores are one of the trickiest to dodge. Foundation alone doesn’t do the trick, which is why we turn to the UK's no.1 bestselling primer• to shrink our pores. We use the translucent balm as a primer in the mornings or as a touch-up treatment throughout the day. Perfect T-zone, here we come! The silky, oil-free formula diffuses pores and fine lines for an “airbrushed” finish. It goes on sheer, leaving skin even and smooth. Don’t we all love instant gratification?

How to Use

As a primer, apply a fine layer on clean or moisturised skin, starting from the centre of your face and working outwards. Pat to blend. Feel free to use for midday touch-ups too — just dab a pea-size amount over your make-up and blend.

Deserves the hype

The texture of this is a little thick, but it blends in wihout too much effort. In my experience of using this, Porefessional makes a great base for a mousse foundation. My pores stay camouflaged for the 9-5 and it's pretty difficult to sweat this stuff off, even on a commute!

Love it

This is a must have product in my make up box, great on its own, with tinted moisturiser or full foundation. My skin feels great after use it and does not dry it out like other primers can.

Great at mattifying
Sampled

I have oily combo skin and this blurs pores and mattifies skin for a flawless foundation finish. The texture is lovely, it's a soft velvety cream to powder kind of texture that feels smooth.

Does what it says
Sampled

I find that this little gem really does work! My complexion looks much smoother when applied as a primer under my foundation. It did make my nose area slightly more oily but that was easily fixed when I skipped the moisturiser out!
