Primer is definitely a make-up essential for me as I use it every day regardless of how long I am going to wear my make-up for. Not only does it help keep your make-up in place for longer but it also acts as a base so your foundation has a perfect, even canvas. Benefit POREfessional does more than this though as it is also designed to minimise the appearance of pores.
Benefit is one of my favourites brands because no matter what the product, the quality is brilliant and I am yet to be disappointed by anything I have tried. Before purchasing POREfessional I had heard numerous good reviews so I had high expectations for this too but how would it work with my combination skin and foundation?
The formulation of POREfessional is an oil free light beige cream which turns transparent once applied to the skin so it is suitable for all skin tones. I find it provides the perfect base for my foundation because it evens out my skin tone and leaves my skin with a silky soft, matte finish. The primer absorbs quickly into my skin too and has a subtle floral scent which soon disappears on application.
Unlike other primers, there are actually two ways to use POREfessional. You can either apply it after your moisturiser and before your foundation which is what I usually do or over the top of your make-up during the day for any touch ups. I don't often do the latter but it's great you have the option and anything that helps keep a flawless make-up look for as long as possible has got to be a winner.
I really love this multi-purpose primer from Benefit and it is definitely one I would re-purchase. Ithelps keep my make-up stay in place for longer and I really love that you can use in under or over your make-up. If you want to buy POREfessional it is available at Debenhams for £24.50.
