I received this in my July Birchbox. I’m always happy to receive benefit product. So when I opened up my bag and saw this, my face lit up. I’ve wanted to try it for ages but could never justify the full price label. This primer has won many awards, which always bodes well!
Quickly minimise the appearance of pores with Benefit The POREfessional PRO Balm Primer! Apply this silky, lightweight balm for translucent pore coverage and smoother-than-smooth skin. Pores… now you see ’em, now you don’t!
This primer has a tint to it, which I like because you can use it over your make up, as well as under.
Apply the POREfessional from the centre of the face outward by patting lightly with fingertips…pay particular attention to the T-zone area. Keep it in your bag for touch-ups during the day.
I’m quite impressed with this little primer. It really did minimise my pores! I have a problem with pores on my nose, and I’m still trying to battle to get them to shrink. But while my battle continues, this little gem is helping me out while I’m getting there! It’s non oily and doesn’t look shiny after you’ve put it on. One thing I am a bit dissapointed in is that it doesn’t really seem to be filling my fine lines, which is a bit annoying.. Otherwise, this is a great product. It goes on like a dream, makes my skin feel silky smooth and makes my make up stay put most importantly! I like that the formula is tinted too, so it can be applied over make up for a quick touch up if you get a bit shiny. Gotta love products that are multi functional!
I’ll most likely be buying the full size of this. The one thing that I did mention though I was dissapointed in was that it didn’t fill my fine lines. If anyone has any hints or tips to resolve this I would be grateful for the advice! Otherwise, a cracking product. I’ve got to add too, when I’ve read some reviews on this, some people have been complaining that it doesn’t reduce there pores. This item doesn’t reduce pores it minimises the look of pores!
You can buy the full size of this product for £24.50 here.
