POREfessional, by Benefit, is touted as a PRO balm to minimize the appearance of pores. it comes in a 0.75oz tube which is TSA friendly when you fly. As the packaging says it’s oil-free, lightweight, translucent and silky. I totally agree on all these points. It is similar to their dr. feelgood complexion balm. If I had to choose between the two (which I did at the makeup counter when I bought it) I would choose POREfessional because I like the texture better.
How to use:
Squeeze out a small amount on your fingertip and dot onto skin sparesely. Gently blend in to skin.
I like to use it under my liquid or cream makeup, but you can wear it by itself, over your makeup (for touchups). I will even where it with only a little pressed powder dusted over my face, just to get rid of any shine.
Why I like POREfessional by Benefit:
- It slightly mattifies my skin
- It smooths out the texture of my skin
- Acts as a primer
- Doesn’t mess up my makeup when I use it for touchups
Usually I will add it to the areas I feel need the most help; cheeks, forhead and nose… my pores seem to be the biggest on my nose. I can hide loose change and small pets in the pores on my nose.
Anway, Benefit suggest you use this product in addition to a primer (that’s what the sales girl said). I have used it as a primer and put a primer over it. Both work. I found using it in addition to the primer gave me a heavier look, which was what I was going for.
