Benefit Porefessional - Worth the Hype?

 


I'm sure you have all heard of the Porefessional, a primer that aims to 'quickly minimize the appearance of pores' by Benefit. There are many mixed reviews that I have heard, some people think it does nothing and its not worth the hype but then others swear by it and use it everyday. I have quite a mixed opinion on this primer, it does work to help minimize pores. But I just don't think the results are that amazing and noticeable to be so raved about.

I do like the packaging for this product though, there is a nice turquoise theme going on. I think the colours make it really appealing and is probably why a lot of people want to buy it as it entices them in haha. When you squeeze the primer out of the tube, it has a skin colour which surprised me when I first used it as I thought it was going to be clear. Once applied to the skin, I apply it mainly around my nose where my pores are more obvious, it blends really easily and feels very smooth.

Although there is a slight difference, I still can see my pores and there isn't a large difference. However that is probably due to the fact I only use a small pea size amount; if I used more I'm sure my pores would be gone. But I don't exactly want to waste the product.

Enough about the bad things, now onto the good. The Porefessional really helps to make my makeup last longer and when I use it I can notice that it doesn't slip and slide as easily. Not only that but it helps keep my face matte for longer, which is always a good thing if you have oily skin. Because of these reasons, I like to use it everyday and it has become a must have item for me. I also mentioned this in my August Favourites because I was enjoying it so much!

Overall I really like the Porefessional and would definitely repurchase it once mine has run out. I really recommend it if you have oily skin. Even though the whole pore minimizing thing didn't work for me, I still really think this product is worth the hype for other reasons. Thank you for reading this blog post, I hope you enjoyed it, bye!

  2. I've been through a lot of samples of this but am still unsure if it's worth the price or not. I recently bought the Body Shop Instablur primer when it was 40% off and that has been working really well for me, it was only £8 with the money off x

  5. I like it but I wouldn't say its the best for me. I don't like the amount of silicone thats in it. Don't get me wrong I use it from time to time but its not my go-to primer! x
