Benefit POREfessional - it's about Prime!



Any new readers coming to my blog right now will think I have an infatuation with Benefit. I won't apologise for all the reviews of this brand as I just adore it. I'm using a lot of their products lately. The brand is so cute and all the vintage inspired female drawing they use are right up my street.

 
The POREfessional is the UK's No.1 best selling primer (Benefit have a lot of UK no. 1s). I bought the smaller version as part of the it's about Prime! essentials kit. I've always wanted to try this as it's had superb reviews but as it's expensive for the full size I opted for a kit to get more value for my money. Funnily enough I haven't even tried the Triple Preforming face emulsion yet so I can't review it. I don't really now a lot about it to be honest so if anyone has reviewed it please leave your link for myself and others to follow.

I have very large pores and trying to cover them is a constant battle. I found this product didn't work for me as it just sat in my pores instead of smoothing them. I'm sure if I had finer pores this would be a perfect product but I wouldn't recommended it to those who have skin like mine. I decided to go back to my much cheaper primer by Avon. Sorry Benefit maybe I was hoping for too much, damn my genes!
