Mirror Mirror on the wall, who has the biggest pores of them all?….Me! Aww shucks! Thanks 🙂
If you read my intro and said you have the biggest pores, then no no no, my dear, you ain’t got nothing on me! I swear you can see my pores from space, but I think I might have found a product that can finally make the little suckers disappear (well temporarily at least) 🙂
This is the Benefit POREfessinal
Packaging: The product comes in a squeeze tube making the use of this product very easy.
Product: The formulation of this product is a little like a balm.
A little definitely goes a long way. When you first squeeze some out, it feels like its going to be thick, but once you start blending it into the skin, it feels almost non-existent, which is a big plus because I hate the feel of pore clogging products. The product promises to reduce the appearance of pores as well control oil, so I usually apply this to my t-zone (forehead, cheeks, around nose). The product comes out in a beige color but the color disappears after applying, so it works on all skin tones and shades.
Pricing: $29 USD
Overall: I like this product. Is it my holy grail, everyday go to product? No, but I like the fact that when I do use it, it works. The product fills in your pores and fine lines therefore giving a more refined and finished effect. However, since I do have crater sized pores, it doesn’t make them disappear, but it does help them appear smaller.
As far as promising to help with oil control, it does do that but not all day. I usually still have to blot my face and apply my Rimmel Stay Matte Powder.
One suggestion I do have if you use this product, pat the product on instead of rubbing it in. The trick to this product is definitely in the application. When you pat/dab/stipple/ it on the product is better able to fill all the pores and fine lines. Whereas if you rub it on, the product just sits on the skin and doesn’t do much of anything.
I would recommend this product to girls looking for a pore minimizer that also helps with some oil control.

Sidenote: this is my last Benefit product review for a while. I miss talking about my drugstore products so bye-bye high end 🙂
