Benefit The POREfessional Primer Review -- Does it work?
Packaging - Benefit is known for its irreverent product names with cute and chic packaging. The benefit primer comes in a pretty sea blue plastic tube with a black cap. It has a small nozzle to take out the product and helps control the amount to dispense quite well. The Benefit Porefessional Primer tube is smaller than what I expected but it is certainly travel friendly.
Texture- Benefit Porefessional Primer claims to have a balm like texture which pretty much holds true. It has a very silky finish which applies easily on the face. You are supposed to dab it onto your problem areas instead of rubbing it in as directed. The face primer certainly has a very silicone-y texture hence I wasn’t surprised to find the ingredient list to be full of them! This would definitely be a deterrent for those who have sensitive skin or are allergic to silicones.
Does it work on open pores? The Benefit POREfessional Face Primer evens out the complexion, fills in pores to a good extent but certainly does not hide them completely. As you can judge from the pictures, the benefit the porefessional primer evened out my complexion a bit, the broken capillaries around my nose looked less prominent and the pores were blurred out.
Efficacy as a Primer- As a primer, it does a decent job. Keeps my makeup from sliding off for 6-7 hours even in hot and humid conditions. As for mattifying the face, my combination skin remains shine free for about 8-9 hours if I use the MAC Pro Longwear Foundation but only 4 hours if I’m wearing the TBS BB Cream hence it might not perform so well for those with oily skin.
Deal Breaker- Now coming to the major issue- breakout. I guess it’s because of all the silicones it contains that must be clogging my pores. However, I found a way to make it work. Instead of applying it all over my face, I only apply it to the problem areas- nose, under eye area and the chin which is where I primarily have enlarged pores
Verdict - Benefit The Porefessional Pore Minimizing Primer was neither a hit nor a miss for me. Though I absolutely love it for how well it minimized my enlarged pores but it clogged it and broke me out and my skin rarely does!
I recommend you try out a sample before investing in the full sized product. If it does not break you out then you’ll surely love the results!
