I have read and heard so much about the Benefit POREfessional, I was only to happy to receive a few testers of the little green tubes for christmas and my birthday.
I have oily / combination skin and I have always struggled to find a primer that doesn't make my skin even more oily - especially my t-zone.
I've tried a whole number of other brands of primers such a the equally talked about (dupe for POREfessional) Baby Skin by nothing has seem to wow me so far, so for this reason I wasn't expecting to much of an amazing result.
Firstly I love the pop art style packaging from Benefit but when do they ever fail on signature packaging?
I have now used a full tester bottle of POREfessioinal and it does everything it promises on the packaging and more. Not only did it minimise my pore and lines it also worked great as a make up and eyeshadow base.
The primer doesn't provide to much colour to the skin but it slightly evens out your skin tone, which is perfect for a primer. The primer almost has a chalky feel to touch which is ideal to use on my oily t-zone. While on holiday I ended up just using the Benefit POREfessional on it's own with a touch of powder on top to matte my skin. This gave my skin a flawless finish all day long but it also felt light on the skin, which is just want you want in hot weather.
I have fallen in make up love with this product. It has fitted perfectly into my make up routine and has meant I haven't had to wear foundation for the past two weeks, which has given my skin a little bit of breathing time. Even thought the price tag is a little expensive I will be buying the full tube of Benefits POREfessional when I have ran out of my testers.
