Benefit Porefessional First Impressions


If you saw my post about the Benefit Gift Set that I recently bought, you will know that it included a mini size of Porefessional. I had never tried this before, but had always wanted to, so I was very pleased that it came in the Gift Set.

I haven't been using this products for long, maybe 3 or 4 weeks, but so far I have noticed a big difference. It makes my skin so much softer and smoother and makeup is easy to apply over it. It has definitely improved the lasting power of my foundation, as well as making pores a lot less visible.

I have always been unsure about buying this because it does seem a lot of money for a primer, but after trying it out, I have realised that it is definitely worth it. Another thing that worried me, is that I would spend the money on it and then it would run out very quickly. After using this for a few weeks, there is still loads left, even though it is very small and only contains 7.5ml of the product. A little amount of this primer goes a long way, which is one of the reasons it lasts for a long time.

Also, as it is a coloured primer, you can use it alone if you are having a minimal make up day. I love the fact that it is tinted (unlike a lot of other primers, such as Maybelline Baby Skin) because it brings some subtle colour to your face.

When applying the product, it feels unbelievably silky and makes my skin feel so much more hydrated and fresh. One of the things that I love about it, is that it does not appear oily or greasy, in the way that many other primers do. This is especially good for me because the place I get most oily is my nose and obviously that is where most of my pores are, but the product doesn't increase the appearance of oily skin at all.

I really love the packaging because even though it is just a sample size, it still looks like the packaging of the normal size tube, which is something that some companies fail to do with their samples. Finally, I have heard a lot of people say that they don't like the smell of the product, but I think it smells fine.

Have you tried this before? What did you think of it?
