There 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.
As 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.
Perfect 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.
It 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.
