Benefit The Porefessional

Price: $53 from Myer

Obtained: From ABC giftbag


Pores are something I’ve never really thought about. When ever I think of pores I imagine Daria’s sister Quinn voice in my head from the 90’s cartoon ^_^ So I didn’t think this product would be something I would ever use but after trying it for a while I can admit I might have been wrong.

It is lightly coloured but transparent when rubbed in and feels like velvet. It dries super smooth and has a matt finish, I used it in place of a primer over my t-zone. When looking closely I couldn’t see much of a difference but after actually applying foundation over the top it certainly looked a lot smoother than usual. That said, because pores are not a thing I’ve ever been self conscious about I don’t know if this is something I would think about enough to use again other than as a primer.

I do think it works, I tested it on James’ nose and I could see a difference on his skin but at around $50 I wouldn’t buy it again if I was just going to use it as a regular primer. You only need a tiny amount to go a long way so if it was an area I was concerned about it would probably be cost effective. I would recommend it for those who are self conscious about their pores.

Would I buy Benefit The Porefessional again: I wouldn’t because I don’t have problems with my pores and it makes an expensive primer… but I would recommend it for people who are concerned about their pores.
