For over a month, I have been using the Benefit POREfessional Face Primer. I decided to try this after reading amazing reviews online and also ranking highly on Sephora. Furthermore, the awards this primer has won as well also had me intrigued. Large pores are a problem for me, so naturally, this jumped to the top of my wishlist and I had to try it for myself.
Benefit claims that this primer minimizes the appearance of fine lines, pores and it is oil-free. This translucent primer can also be worn alone, under make up or over make up for a smooth finish.
There are currently 3 different size options which is great if you just want to try it for the first time and if you do not want to risk the price of a full size tube. The options are; a travel size mini which is 7.5mL / 0.25 US fl. oz., a regular size which is 22.0 mL / 0.75 US fl. oz. and also the larger value size which is 44.0 mL, 1.5 US fl. oz.
I have a combination skin type, so for me, finding the right primers and foundations can be a challenge. This primer though, feels like it was made my skin as its not completely mattifying or too hydrating.
The formula itself has a thick texture. However it does not actually feel heavy on the skin. As I purchased the small travel size, I only applied the primer on my cheeks and nose at first to make the product last longer. Although I have recently been using this primer for my whole face.
When I applied the product to my pores, I was so pleasantly surprised! It filled in my pores and blurred them like it was photoshopped. Another thing I loved about this primer is how long it lasted. I can wear this primer underneath my foundation all day without my make up separating like others I have tried.
I think Benefits POREfessional Face Primer is 100% worth the money and it definitely lives up to the hype! You can purchase the POREfessional Primer directly from Benefit Cosmetics, Sephora and heaps of other stores which makes this a great primer to invest in as its so easily accessible.
