Meet my new best friend...
'The Porefessional' from Benefit is one of my newest products to be introduced into my everyday make up routine. I love Benefit and the play on words that they have applied to this particular product (but my autocorrect hates it).
I first tried this product when I get it as a gift with one of my favourite fashion magazines. I found that it helps minimise the appearance of pores, helps the skin smooth out for applying foundation and it also helps me with a skin issue that I have. Now, like most people, I have a "combination" skin type. I have certain areas of my face that can be dry, but with the likes of my nose and chin, I do have oily patches. I found that with The Porefessional, my foundation seemed to last a lot longer on these troubled oily areas.
When I decided to replace my usual primer I went for this because I found it to be light on the skin and extremely easy to apply. Whilst at a Benefits counter in town I noticed this little pink box that contained a tube of The Porefessional along with a mini bottle of their Triple Performing Facial Emulsion for around the same price for the primer alone. Not only is the bottle for the emulsion cute and beautiful, the emulsion itself is lovely.
Just like the primer, it is light on the skin and it has made a difference to the dry skin that I have around my face. It contains SPF15 which I love, because you should always protect your skin from sun damage.
So all in all, it was a lovely little treat to come home with it.
What primer do you use?
