I’ve seen good reviews, I’ve seen bad reviews, and the point is that I’ve seen a ton of reviews on Benefit’s most hyped product–the POREfessional. So when I received a sample after winning a contest with fellow blogger, Caryl Almelor, I knew I had to chime in with my two cents on the product. What did I think? Keep reading.
What It Is: A pro balm that goes on sheer, but minimizes the appearance of pores and fine lines. Can be worn alone, under or over makeup.
My Experience: I’ve read mixed reviews, but for me, this did exactly what it claimed. My pores are only visible on my cheeks and the bit of forehead between my eyebrows, so I limited my application to that area. It was amazing to watch my pores disappear.
But Do You Need It? As amazed as I was with how effectively this made my pores disappear, I was questioning how much I needed it. I honestly can’t see myself bothering to apply this on foundation free days, and when I wear foundation, I tend not to notice my pores. If your pores are very noticeable with foundation or if your foundation sinks into your pores, then I would recommend this product. Otherwise, it might be a pass.
Price: $31.00 for the full size
Cruelty-Free: Benefit’s policy is to not test on animals “except where required by law.” That last part generally means that yes, they do in fact, test on animals and are CHOOSING to sell their products where animal testing is required by law (China) or that they are using ingredients that require animal testing.
