Here it is the most famous Benefit Porefessional full review. I think this is the most famous product from Benefit cosmetics. Basically this is a pore balm that help you to minimize appearance of your pores. This is one of my January Beauty favorite *check it here*.
This product won't minimize your pore, It's more like foundation primer that instantly help you to minimize the appearance of pores when you use it. Benefit porefessional is the first pores balm I tried.
There is so many beauty gurus talk about this product. Pores is the biggest problem for my skin. I was born with genetically big pores. First time I heard good review about this product, I am so excited to tried.
Box Packaging : nominate with mint and soft yellow color, the packaging is really Benefit signature packaging. Kinda like vintage and classy. The box packaging can be opened like a book and there is a picture of an agent and more description about this product.
Product Story : Benefit packaging always tells a story. This product story is about an agent who will help our big pores problem called as "The Porefessional Action Figure".
Product Packaging : It's come in sleek tube.. tube or pump is always better than jar.
What it's claim :
1. Quickly minimize the appearance of pores : It does... It's not like your pore will be gone.. but it does make it looks smaller that the real one.
2. Silky and lightweight formula : Totally agree. It's makes my skin feel silky, and it doesn't feel too face as a primer.
3.Minimize the appearance of fine lines : I don't have fine line, so I don't know about this one.
4. Make your skin smoother : yeah of course..
5. Oil Control : I am not really sure about this one, but I do feel it's help my oily skin a bit. I still get oily after around 4 hours.
How to Use ?
It's supposed to use as foundation primer. I use this after my moisturizer or sun block *if I use one*. On the packaging, it says you can apply this product for touch up during the day when you get oily. But I never tried since it's too expensive for this purpose *I prefer to use oil control film or power* and I am worry if it will my foundation looks cakey.
Formula : It's looks like nude cream but it's actually transparent. When you apply this product to your skin it feels very silky. It does contain silicon I think, which is not good for your pores. I suggest you exfoliate your skin if you use this product, or at least clean your face using facial fash *not only make up wipes or creme cleanser*
Result - before and after picture
