I’m not usually one for primers, especially mattifying primers. I have dry skin so I usually apply a super hydrating moisturizer before I put on my foundation and skip the primer. But if there’s one primer I’m crazy over, it’s this: Benefit‘s The POREfessional! I’m always happy with Benefit products, so I figured this was definitely worth a try. This lightweight cream goes on and leaves a very velvety smooth finish; you can almost tell that your pores aren’t going to show once you put your foundation on! After I applied my foundation over ThePOREfessional, my skin looked downright flawless. Not a pore in sight, and here’s the really incredible part: I didn’t even need to use a setting powder!!
This would be an ideal product for those of you with oily skin and large pores… What a difference! I’m very impressed with this balm. Even if you don’t have a problem with your pores, or your pores are very small, that’s even better! They become virtually erased off of your face… And if you do deal with large pores, this stuff will drastically minimize their appearance. As we know, there’s no way to actually “shrink” your pores, but ThePOREfessional is my pick for the best pore-tackling product!
Oh, and don’t let the color in the photo throw you off: These don’t come in different colors, and it goes on completely sheer.
