"Porefessional" Benefit Review

I'm not going to lie, before I started using this product (about a year ago), I had never used, or considered using a primer before, then one day I was in Debenhams stocking up on all my usual Benefit make-up when the beauty consultant offered me a free makeover. The first thing she did was apply the "POREfessional" primer to my face, and since then I have used this product religiously and can't image how I never thought of using a primer before.

According to Benefit, this product "quickly minimises the appearance of pores & fine lines for smoother-than-smooth skin! The translucent, oil-free formula complements all skintones and helps makeup stay put. It contains a Vitamin E derivative, known to protect skin from free radicals", and for me it is very easy to see how it is the UK's number 1 best selling primer. I apply this silky lightweight balm over my skin before I put my foundation on, and it really does make such a huge difference. Not only does it completely even out your complexion and hide your pores, but it leaves your skin feeling like velvet, and your foundation glides across it so easily for a completely even application! I find this product is great at keeping your makeup in place too, and leaves your skin feeling much fresher and breathable as you are no longer applying your thick foundation directly onto your skin.

Priced at £24.50, like most Benefit products it is slightly more expensive than you may pay for a high-street brands equivalent, but the product does last a very long time and since it is applied it directly to the skin, I would much prefer to pay more for a better quality product that won't leave me looking greasy and shiny. The "POREfessional" leaves a beautiful matte finish, meaning foundation is effortlessly applied, and due to its shine reducing qualities it makes your whole makeup look seem far more natural.

  11. I was debating to try this product for a long time! I haven't ever used primer (Hope no one judges me right now haha) but I think I will start, is it visible that you've put primer on or is it light weight and natural? :)

    Also just stumbled on your blog and I love it so much posts I want to comment on :') x
