The POREfessional primer from Benefit is a key player in my makeup routine. Ever since I began wearing foundation I have always put a primer underneath it but it wasn't until about seven months ago that I decided to take the plunge and invest in a slightly more expensive primer. After reading lots of positive reviews of The POREfessional I decided that this was the one - and it could be the best decision I've ever made!
Being unfortunately graced with larger pores than normal made this primer seem like the perfect solution to all my problems and, although it doesn't make them disappear completely, it definitely minimizes them and makes them less visible. My skin verges on the oily side - particularly on my nose - but The POREfessional reduces how oily my skin gets through the day so I no longer need to bring a loose powder with me whenever I leave my house. Obviously this primer doesn't stop oil completely but I'd say my face lasts around eight hours before it starts to get oily, which is when I'll apply a powder. The great thing about this primer is that my foundation goes on very smoothly and it lasts for hours without me needing to reapply the foundation or concealer (the current foundation that I'm using is Nars Sheer Glow - it's AMAZING!). The only problem I have with this primer is that I have to use more than I thought I would to cover my whole face; a little bit doesn't go a long way in this case! Despite this, a tube of The POREfessional manages to last me about six months with nearly daily use.
In conclusion, I absolutely adore this primer and can't imagine my makeup routine without it anymore! Let me know what you think of this primer if you've tried it and if not then tell me what your favourite primer is.
