Kate's Product of the Week - Benefit's Porefessional

My second instalment of product of the week is one of my favourite products EVER! Benefit's Porefessional

I've literally been using this for years! I first discovered this in 2011 in Las Vegas, the girl in Sephora was insistent on me getting a special cute little primer pack, which did come in handy and I did love all the stuff inside. 

I've been a keen Porefessional Lover since!! Porefessional for a big tube costs £24.50 for 22ml. I usually get the Benefit Sets which are like £20+ with a small sized tube inside. 

It is a pore minimizer and it's a balm so it's not greasy and it quite airy on the skin. It is meant to reduce the appearance of pores, making them less noticeable. As a person who has rather large pores (brace yourself for some hideous pics). For me, it takes away a lot of shine I get on my nose. 

As you can see the pores on the end of my nose and cheeks are nearly fully covered up. This isn't properly pigmented either so you could really just wear this on it's own with a tinted moisturiser or BB cream. 

I mentioned the sets I get before and my most recent set from Benefit is "How to Look the Best at Everything" in Medium, which I received as a gift for Christmas and it's an amazing little set which includes The Porefessional, Hello Flawless Foundation, 2 Boi-ing Concealers and Hello Flawless Powder. It really is a set I'd highly recommend to any Benefit basic make-up fans.

Hope you've enjoyed my 2nd product of the week. If you have any suggestions for products of the week, let me know in the comments below.

  6. Porefessional is an incredible product - I've been using it for about 2 years now and wouldn't be with out it. A full size tube lasts ages too.

  7. Never heard of these before, but the results look fantastic. It is definitely my new year's life resolution to make more effort! Actually today (you would be dead proud) before I met my friend to take the babies to Story Time, I sat and did my hair and make up! I only put my hair in a bun, put a bit of pore minimising stuff on, bit of light foundation (dream matte mousse), mascara and a bit of light eye shadow. I filled in my eyebrows and put a slick of vaseline on my lips and I was good to go! Definitely enjoy having clear skin and looking decent! xxx

  8. OMG I didn't know there was a product to reduce pores - I have really wide pores too so I'm rushing out to buy this porefessional product as I know it really works - glad I found your post !!

  9. That looks like such an awesome set ! xo
