Hi everyone! This is my first review and I want to share with you my thoughts on this primer by Benefit called The POREfessional. This product retails for C$34 at Sephora and it comes with 22 mL/0.75 US fl. oz of product. I find it a bit expensive for how little product it comes with.
Claims: Minimize the appearance of pores, Oil-Free, Lightweight, Translucent and Silky.
Texture: The feel to this balm is almost like a cream to powder finish, it`s almost similar to NARS Multiple when applied to the face. It`s very silky as it feels like a silicon based product. You really only need the smallest amount to apply it all over your face.
- Smooths out your skin
- minimize your pores
- Very silky application
- Needs the smallest amount
- Doesn`t last more than 2 hours
- Doesn`t do anything if you have combination to oily skin
- Doesn`t help your foundation last long
Although I know a lot of people love this product, I don`t really care for it enough to want to repurchase this. Reason for that is because after one or two hours it seems to have enhanced my pores a bit, which is kind of ridiculous cause I expect it to at least last for few more hours. There isn`t much other function to this PRO balm, besides smooths out your skin/pores but you can take a small amount and mix it with your concealer to create a sheer foundation.
Before you purchase this item, you got to remember a few things so you won`t get disappointed; This is only meant to MINIMIZE your pores, not completely hide it. Do not expect this BALM to help your foundation last longer cause it won`t (At least it doesn`t for my face). I would recommend this to those who wants to give this a shot to cover your pores, but I wouldn`t recommend this to those who are looking for a good primer.
OVERALL RATE FOR THE PRODUCT: 3/5
Props for them for not claiming it`s a primer.
