Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional Review

The beauty world can’t stop raving about it. Makeup lovers can’t stop craving about it. Yes you all guessed it right…Its the  POREfessional by benefit cosmetics
So lets get to know Mr POREfessional little more on Beauty and the Best blog Smile



Price :  USA – $30 , Australia – $52 , UK – £24.50

What Is The POREfessional ? A facial primer that can be used over or under makeup to reduce the appearance of pores and give you smoother, softer skin!

Why I need POREfessional primer ? Like moisturiser is designed to hydrate your skin, benefit primer is made to give your skin a smooth surface and mask pores. A foundation and compact alone can’t give you a flawless appearence. You need a good base / primer beneath it.

How To Apply ?
To use under makeup: Apply to clean, lightly moisturized skin. Pat on problem areas & blend with fingertips.
To use over makeup: Pat on lightly over makeup & blend.

Expert Tips : Apply a thin layer of this PRO balm to clean, lightly moisturized skin. Pat lightly from the center of the face outward with fingertips. Wait seconds, then apply makeup as usual. Skin appears smooth & even

My Experience

I stumbled upon this Porefessional primer in Sydney airport and when I swatched it on my hand, I felt such extreme softness and smoothness and I was really impressed. I wanted it ever since I saw my favourite youtube guru talking about it. The temptation kept growing stronger till one fine day I finally met POREfesional personally... So is it worth the hype or not ? Lets find out …

Number one POREfessional claim : ‘PRO balm to minimize the appearance of pores’. If you ask me I’ll shout YES ! I do have small pores at the centre of my face and this primer manages to hide them like a pro. I dab small amount on my nose chin and wherever I see pores. I’m surprised to see how my pores are virtually gone. None of the primers I had so far was able to do that. It has a great, smooth, non-oily texture, it fills my pores quickly and gives my skin a great youthful and matte finish. POREfessional is a nude-ish tinted cream, it is extremely lightweight so I don’t feel like I’ve got anything on my skin.

I’m prone to breakout easily surprisingly this one hasn’t broke me out so far. By hiding my pores without clogging them, this product gives me the perfect base.

Staying Power : Stays on for 8 hours on my oily skin.
Price : I got for AUD $52 which is expensive but the amount of product you get lasts really long -Around 3 months even if you use it everyday.
Packaging : Comes in a travel friendly tube packaging. I always admire benefit packaging, its cute….they are also pretty amazing in naming their products!
Beauty and the Best Tips :

  • Apply the POREfessional over blemishes, then blend concealer on top. It’ll keep skin looking smooth and lock the concealer in place.
  • If you are in a hurry just pat POREfessional on clean moisturised skin and dust some powder. You are good to go.

Overall, it’s simply brilliant, the POREless effect lasts long, it keeps my oily areas matte for hours along with hiding a first fine line. A little goes a long way and totally worth the money !

What I Like ? Smile

  • Blends Well
  • Easy To Apply
  • Lightweight
  • Long Lasting
  • Natural Looking
  • Non comedogenic
  • Non Greasy Or Oily
  • Smooth

What I Don’t Like ? Frown

Huge pores may need extra filling

Who Will Like It ?

  • People with all Skin Types
  • those who wear makeup everyday
  • those with less to medium pore size
  • those with Sensitive Skin
  • those who are Travelling and want their makeup to stay longer
  • Those with huge pores (you may need something more to cover )
  • those with matured wrinkled skin.

Who Might not Like It ?

Those with acne prone and very sensitive skin.

Final Verdict : It really does what it says! I use it everyday under makeup. It last all day; no fading or peeling through the day.

Will I recommend it ? YES

My Rating : 4/5

      • Hi I got some of the benefit pore fessional balm and thought it was great, I have mature skin and it improved the texture and felt really smooth. I don’t know if you have experienced this but I went out with family and we had some photographs taken and on every one my cheeks looked like I had white flour on them, it must be something in the cream, has anyone else experienced this because I really love this product but if this happens everytime you have a photograph taken, it’s in the bin!!

  2. The kind of cream I need! Going to look out for this product.
