Bonjour wonderful readers, I really want to tell you about this product!
Benefit's Porefessional primer is a great product, its silky lightweight balm is created for translucent pore coverage and smoother skin for make up application.
I have combination skin and the pores on my nose area can be quite prominent. Using this primer really helps to create a smooth base for a longer lasting make-up all day.
The product description says this primer is suitable for all skin types, but to be honest I don't think this would work very well with dry skins. It can feel quite thick and when applying the oil absorbing properties, which are great for keeping excess oil away, can make it hard to spread around the face. So if you do have dry skin just make sure to properly moisturise before using this product.
The primer has a light foundation colour to it which I was surprised to see when I opened the tube, but as you apply the cream it disappears into the skin for a translucent finish. As I am very fair skinned this works well for me, I'm not sure how good this is for darker skins. But the colouring of the primer is great to reduce any slight redness you may have on your skin.
I don't apply this all over my face, but only to the area's that need smoothing and calming. It leaves my skin feeling great and creates a lovely base for make-up application. The primer can also be applied throughout the day for touch ups on oily area's to reduce shine.
Although this product is quite pricey and sells at £23.50 for a 22ml tube, it does last quite a long time as you don't need to apply too much each time.
I would recommend this product for those with oily skins and large pores as I think you will really be able to feel a difference in your make up from the first application.
