Benefit POREfessional, is it worth the hype? i believe so!
I first ever used this product in a teeny tiny sample.. only just enough in the sample to stretch and cover your face, and from that very moment as soon as the silky formula of Benefit POREfessional touched my skin i knew i needed to have this in my make up bag!
Now I’m actually unsure whether this is supposed to be used as an actual primer or whether it’s soul purpose in life is only to be used on the ‘problem pore areas’ to reduce the look of pores? its pretty out there in the whole ‘what is it’ debate. I think its a little of each to their own use it how you like if you want to use it as a primer.. go ahead. I tend to use mine just around ‘problem pore areas’ – straight down my nose, a little to each side of my nose & whatever is left over goes on my forehead, i like to use mine sparingly along with my usual everyday primer.
I think my favourite thing about this product is just how silky it actually is! Yes its super soft! Once I’ve applied it i find myself just wanting to stroke and touch my face (… Creepy… but hey its my face!) As with most benefit products this too is slightly scented but not at all over powering and once rubbed into your face the POREfessional completely disappears. It doesn’t leave your face feeling at all greasy just super duper soft and strokeable (trust me… you really will want to stroke your face!)
At £23.50 its quite pricey for the amount you get, but i only use the tiniest amount each day, I’ve had it for a while now and still have alot left – a little really does go a long way with this product! I think it’s done a really good job at minimising my pores and giving my make up a smoother finish, i honestly don’t think i could live without it in my make up bag now.
Have you tried Benefit POREfessional? What was your thoughts?


  • I really like this! I use it weirdly I think – put on my base then add it to the areas where my pores are more visible, like the side of my nose, to reduce shine! X

  • I really like this as well :) I go in and out of using it, but I agree that it makes your face feel super silky and it helps with pores :D

    Great post <3

    I have had a 2ml sample for ages now! I love it! I will get the full sized one when im done! :D xx

  • I find if I put too much on, it ends up turning really greasy. So I stick to putting a tiny bit around my nose and that's it. I do like it though!

  • This is one of my must have make up items.


  • I LOVE the POREfessional! It is so smooth and silky! My next best fave is Benefit's That Gal Primer. It is perfect for my super pink skin :) Great review!

  • I had a couple of the samples and I love the porefessional xxLucy Loves To Blog

  • I LOVE this, I can really tell the difference if I don't wear it. On the Benefit website it lists it as a primer, but I use it the same way you do!

  • I haven't really given porefessional a good trial yet – I just use it here and there in a rush but I definitely need to try it more.xx

  • I ADORE this stuff! I get mine from Debenhams though – I try to buy all of my MAC make-up from Debenhams online because you can gain the beauty card points which equal money off.. So last time I had to stock up on POREfessional, I only had to pay £18.50, which is still crazy but so much better than £23.50

  • I have huge pores and this doesn't help at all, so disappointing!

  • I bought this and it was awful on me. I only put it on my problem areas but having dry skin it just dried around the dry areas and looked horrible, so I gave it to my sister and I think she likes it but then again she does have oily skin. Nice review :) xx
