Benefit Porefessional Review

Thursday, 27 June 2013

I can't actually believe I've never reviewed this product on here before. Ever since Benefit's Porefessional was launched a few years ago, and I tested it on my hand at a local counter, it has been my go-to primer. I'd had a few small love affairs with a couple of primers previously, but when I set my sights on this baby I knew I'd never look back. I was originally attracted to the product after learning that it supposedly minimised pores and mattified skin. Now, I suffer with big ol' pores and horrible oilyness, so I'm always looking for ways to combat them. Along came Benefit's Porefessional and I was sorted, seriously. 

I've been using this product for about three years now I think, so I've definitely had a long time to review it. Does it do what it says it does? Yes, absolutely. It feels like silk on my skin, makes my pores invisible, gets rid of my oil and creates a flawless base for my foundation. If I don't use this primer I notice the difference dramatically - without it my skin looks blemished, dull and oily. When I pop some of this on it's suddenly transformed to looking like it's been airbrushed (with foundation over the top, obviously). I honestly feel like Porefessional makes my skin look the best it can possibly look, and that's the reason why I'll never go for any other primer. Okay, so I occasionally dabble in new releases, and like to test out primers as part of the fun of blogging, but Porefessional is a product that will always sit firmly in my makeup bag, and I'll continue to purchase for as long as Benefit decide to make it (which will hopefully be forever!)

Have you tried Benefit's Porefessional before? If you suffer with large pores or oily skin I seriously suggest you try it!
