Benefit – The POREfessional
This post may contain affiliate links.
I recently ordered some make-up items from Benefit (reviews of these coming soon!) and received this free sample of The POREfessional with my order. The POREfessional is a face primer balm that helps to reduce the appearance of pores & fine lines, and is the UK’s best-selling primer.
I have combination skin with an oily nose and chin, resulting in some open pores on either side of my nose, so I was very excited to try out this primer. The POREfessional is a lovely smooth, velvety skin-coloured lotion and I have been applying a little on either side of my nose whenever I do my make-up. It applies really nicely, feeling silky-smooth, and gives a great mattifying effect and also reduces shine. Open pores do seem less visible after applying – I think this is due to a combination of reduced shine and the lotion sitting inside the pores and filling them up. The images below show what my open pores look like without and with The POREfessional.
Benefit The POREfessional can be worn alone or under make-up, but you need to be careful if you are applying liquid foundation over the top that you don’t wipe off the primer that you have already applied. The POREfessional is oil-free, making it ideal for any skin type, and it also works like a regular primer helping make-up stay put for longer.
The POREfessional definitely works and I think it’s a great product for use in Summer when the skin can be slightly more oily due to higher temperatures.
This little mini sample tube is ideal for keeping in my handbag for touch-ups throughout the day. I do love Benefit cosmetics and their quirky product names and packaging, and I will have some more reviews of Benefit products coming soon.
Benefit The POREfessional is priced at £24.50 for 22ml and is available from Benefit Cosmetics.
