Benefit || POREfessional || Review




Hey Beauties...
So you may remember for Christmas I got quite a lot of goodies, well I'm finally getting round to reviewing them for you all (hence the Christmas candles in the pictures) I thought I would start of by sharing with you all my thoughts on Benefits POREfessional. I have now been using this for a while so I feel I have my true opinion on the product.

Benefit POREfessional is a pro beauty balm to help Minimize the appearance of pores, so it doesn't completely erase them. I have recently noticed my pores around my cheeks and forehead have become more visible, so I was really excited to try this product to see if it really did make a difference.
The balm comes in a squeezable, screw cap, tube allowing easy dispense of the product. The tube itself has a silky touch to it which immediately indicates to me that the product itself is going to have a similar texture to it. 

Benefit claim that POREfessional is;
- Oil Free
- Lightweight
- Translucent
- Silky


At a first glance the product does appear to have a tint to it however once its on the skin, it doesn't have any colour at all and is completely translucent.
The texture of the product is definitely silky, light weight and oil free, so its safe to say Benefit have well and truly delivered on their word with this one.

I find it best to use this product over a moisturiser, before applying foundation, focusing on the problem areas, blending it in, over the rest of the face. You can use this over the top of you make-up by patting lightly on the areas, and blending out.

I really noticed a difference in the appearance of my pores immediately. They were still slightly visible if you looked closely, however they were greatly reduced, which is what the product claims to do. I even noticed that after a few days of using the product, my skin felt smoother and softer, even without make-up on.

This product is slightly on the pricey side, for £24.50 you receive 22ml of product, which doesn't seem a lot however you really only need a small amount of product for each use so I can see this lasting a long time.

Overall I am really impressed with this product and it has very quickly become a major factor in my everyday make-up routine. I do even like to wear this on its own on days I don't feel like wearing foundation as it leaves my face looking smooth and even.

Have you tried POREfessional before? What are your thoughts on the product? I'd love to know.

Much Love
