Benefit The Pore-Fessional Pore Minimiser
I have over the past year been trying out new make up products to make sure that I am using the best available to me. Some products I have thought are a complete waste of money and some have been absolutely fantastic and I was glad to find them.
Benefit The Porefessional is a base coat and it is the first thing that you apply to your pores before applying any of your other make up. The Porefessional comes in a 22ml tube and the product inside is a cream/balm, which is a skin tone colour which makes it easier to apply and blend to your skin ready to apply your foundation and powder.
A minimal amount of the balm is needed for each application and it can be applied with either a brush or your finger tip, which ever you find easier. The balm is then placed on your T Zone, your chin and forehead, or wherever you have any open pores. The balm is then applied and it minimises your pores and to allow your skin to require a minimal amount of expensive foundation soaking into your pores.
The porefessional is oil free so does not give you greasy skin, it is also lightweight and once applied leaves your skin feeling soft and silky to touch.
This is very expensive at just under £25, although I purchased mine in the Debenhams sale where I got a further 10% off the marked price. The tube does last a long period of time and you need a small amount, so it works out quite cost effective in the long run.
Once applied you will have great soft skin and without the feeling of your face having layers of product on. Using The Porefessional I have also noticed that you require half the amount of foundation that you would usually use as my pores have already been looked after and the foundation just glides over the top of it.
If you are a little reluctant on the price of this product as you are unaware if this will work for you there are smaller sample sets with this in so you can try before committing to spending a large amount of money on the larger expensive product.
I am glad that I found this Benefit product and I will be using this for years to come, this is an essential item for any make up bag that has foundation in. It covers my pores well and leaves my skin feeling soft to touch.
Summary: great product
