beauty | benefit pro balm the porefessional

Benefit PRO Balm Porefessional - £24.50

I've only recently become a lot more interested in beauty products and having bought the YSL Le Teint Touche Éclat foundation last week, I thought it only best to buy a good primer to help keep it in place. I'd heard so much about the Benefit Porefessional PRO balm, that while browsing the counter in Debenhams I decided to bite the bullet and buy it, taking advantage of the VAT-free day! 

The idea of the Porefessional is to minimise the appearance of pores while helping to keep your make-up in place. This is technically not a primer as its main purpose is to lessen pores and to help combat minor redness, but for me, I don't tend to get oily skin anyway so this is all I really need rather than a full on, heavy duty primer. I'm mainly just looking to reduce the large pores I have on my nose area, so this product is perfect! 

I apply this all over the face before my foundation, starting from the centre of my face and moving outwards with the remaining product. It does appear as a dark nude colour at first but this adapts to your skin and leaves a semi-matte, translucent look. This product provides a great, smooth base for any make-up and considering you only need a tiny amount to do your whole face, I can see it lasting me a really long time.  

Have you tried Benefit Porefessional? Thoughts?


  1. I've tried a mini of this and I really loved it. I just don't wear foundation enough for me to justify the price x

    1. I do wear this just on its own too and find it really 'hides' any pores or redness you only use the tiniest amount so will last ages!
