Friday Favourite #10 Benefit’s The Porefessional

Hey Guys! About six months ago, I went to Benefit to repurchase some makeup that I’d run out of and was given some freebies with my purchase to tryout. One of these freebies was a mini The Porefessional. Now I’d heard of The Porefessional before from other people and had seen it in-store but it never had much of an appeal for me. My pores are pretty okay so why would I need to spend €34 euro on something to hide them I thought. They weren’t that big of a problem for me. I quickly forgot about my freebie over the next few weeks and left it thrown aside somewhere with the rest of my makeup. That was until my older sister came home one day and was saying how she had heard such amazing things about the porefessional and that she wanted to get it. That’s when we decided to try it out to see if these things were true and I was surprised to find that they were.

The Porefessional makes your skin feel so silky and smooth and it certainly makes your complexion a lot more flawless looking without any makeup. I had Benefit’s “That Gal” primer before and loved it but I have to say that I think I prefer The Porefessional to it. The main reason for this is that I feel The Porefessional makes your skin look and feel more moisturized and this is very important for me as I have quite dry skin. Although “That Gal” does make your face look brighter and give it more of a glow, The Porefessional does this and also make your skin look more flawless and even toned. It has a sort of silky feel to it even if you just rub it between your fingers and I find that this makes sure that when I apply makeup over it I don’t really get any dry patches, though I did notice some when I used That Gal.

I really love this primer and have since bought a bigger version of it in my duty free Paris haul  (even though a little of it goes a long way) and gave what was left in the small one to my sister. We both love it and I think that she will probably repurchase it once she runs out. The one thing that I think that could be a problem is that it feels quite oily on your skin (but it is oil free…you’ll know what I mean if you feel it :P) which I like because its very moisturizing and just glides on to your face but this could be a problem for people with oily skin although I’ve never heard any bad reviews about that, I just think that from the feeling of it that it mightn’t last as well on oily skin.
