Benefit Cosmetics the POREfessional + Giveaway! OVER

Benefit the POREfessionalThere are so many products that have garnered a classic status, and Benefit the POREfessional is on its way there. Bloggers have been raving about this stuff since it hit store shelves, and I’m no different. When I first tried this stuff I was hooked!

The formula is super lightweight and leaves my skin feeling smooth and flawless! It helps minimized the appearance of pores and fine lines creating a smooth canvas for you to apply your make up.

Benefit the POREfessional 2As you’ve all probably heard me complain, my skin can be really oily (especially once summer rolls around) and this primer helps to mattify my skin. Best of all, although it comes out of the tube in a sort of beigey colour, it applies translucent so it won’t really appear as if you’re wearing anything at all! If you’re worried about breaking out, I personally have not experienced any blemished skin while using the POREfessional. However, it does have a silicon texture so it’s always a good idea to try it in one area on your face to see if you have a reaction.

Apply to clean, moisturized skin, under your make up to prime your skin. Blend it into your skin using your fingertips anywhere you have visible pores or on your whole face is you want to create a smooth canvas. Pat the areas where your pores are noticeably larger to help the product sink in.

Benefit The POREfessional 3Perfect for hot days, it helps your make up stay put and aborbs in no time. It leaves skin feeling silky and soft, and the oil-free formula contains Vitamin E which is known to protect your skin from free radicals! They don’t called it the POREfessional for nothing, because the formula helps to blur imperfections, but it won’t hide everthing completely as you can see in the photo below. It simply helps even out your skin tone, and creates a nice base.

Benefit Before and AfterIt is a bit on the pricier side, but I find that I don’t need a lot of product for my whole face. Use it sparingly in the areas where you notice that your pores may be larger (like your nose for example). Of course it’s available in a mini for a fraction of the price, so you can always give it a try before dropping the extra dough.

  1. I’ve heard that POREfessional can do three things: minimise appearance of pores, act as a primer, and ‘mattify’ the T-zone area. I’m a fan of any product that simplifies my beauty routine by limiting the number of products to buy. I’ve recently started to notice that my pores around my nose are enlarging so I would like to see how well POREfessional can create a smooth canvas and how well makeup applies and stays on my face. :)

  2. I would like to try because I have heard great things about this product and would like to minimize my pores around my nose area. I go for the natural look and don’t like putting on layers of makeup.

  3. I want to win because I have super large hideous pores on my cheeks and nose. They are so embarassing and I cover it up with lots of foundation that ends up very cake-y at the end of the day. I’ve heard so much about this product and would LOVE to try it out but the price scares me a bit. Thanks for the chance! <3

  4. I really really really want to try this as I have big enlarged pores that I hate,,woud love to see if the Benefit the POREfessional actually works and covers them up!

  5. I have never heard of this product but I would really like to try it ,as Im getting older im having a harder time trying to find great product to help things like large pores , which I have . It is a little pricey but when i fall in love with a product I stick with it !

  6. I would love to try this product as I have enlarged pores and nothing I’ve tried so far shrinks the look of them!

  7. I’ve had samples of this before but given them away untried. I never wear foundation, and so didn’t see the benefit of primer. I’ve learn the error of my ways, and would love to try this again.

  8. I would love to try this because I have relatively large pores and would try any product that can help with minimizing my pores.

  9. That’s a lovely giveaway! I bought the Maybelline version of this today and I would love to compare both brands! Plus, my pores are gigantic!

  10. Right now I use the Nyx pore filler and it seems to work quite well with camouflaging my huge pores! Have always wanted to try Benefits POREfessional, just to see how well it compares to the Nyx one I use! Everyone raves about it, so I’d love to try it too! cheers!

  11. With age comes not only wisdom but large pores unfortunately :( I’ve tried many products but found out that none was really good at camouflaging large pores. I heard so much about POREfessional and would love to try it, especially after seeing a demonstration where it was applied on a lemon skin. In a blink of an eye, the holes on the lemon skin disappeared. Seems like one of the only products that would hold true to its promise :) On top of it, would love to simplify my beauty skin routine by skipping using primer. Thanks so much for the opportunity!
