On a recent Sephora haul, I picked up Benefit’s The POREfessional, a balm that reduces the appearance of pores and fine lines. I have been using this product for about a week and a half now, and I cannot rave enough about it.
There are two different ways of using it. You can either use it as a primer, which is what I chose to do, or apply it on top of your makeup. You want to begin applying it from the center of the face, outwards. I found it works best when you focus on areas where pores and fine lines are most visible, and apply upwards in circular motions. This way, it minimizes their appearance. If you have left overs on your hand, you can then apply it to the rest of your face.
What I love about The POREfessional is how smooth and silky it feels on your skin. It’s light weight, and leaves your skin matte – which in summer, is a positive. On top of that, it helps your makeup stay put and not glide throughout the day.
I would definitely recommend this product if you plan on using it as a primer or just to make your pores not as visible. It’s oil free, so it won’t clog your pores or break you out.
Give it a try, and let me know how you like it!
