Benefit - The POREfessional

I'd heard a lot of good things about this product and really wanted to try it for myself so I headed to my local Boots store to pick one up. I wanted to get a sample first because £23 was a lot to spend on something I wasn't 100% sure on getting but low and behold could I find a sales assistant, no I could not! I used to work for Boots so I know they keep all their samples in drawers or cupboards underneath each brand but because this wasn't the store I used to work in I didn't feel comfortable just jumping in and rummaging around!

My husband was with me and hates shopping so I just grabbed the full size one and decided it would be a treat for myself as I got some money for Christmas and it has been on my wish list.

Well I must say that it was the best decision I've made in a long while. I'm totally in love with it. I thought that it wouldn't last five minutes because the tube was smaller than I thought but you only need a small amount and you can cover your whole face.

The texture is really silky and it just glides over your pores. My make up sat so much better and I noticed a difference straight away.

You can also use it over your make up for a shiny finish although I haven't tried this yet.

When it comes out of the tube it is a tan colour but when you apply it, it just disappears.

I'll definitely be purchasing this again and I'll be looking out for 3 for 2 offers so I can stock up on this and points.

Have you tried The Porefessional? Were you pleased with it?


  1. I've been trying to decide whether to splurge on this for a while now, and after reading your review I think I'm going to go for it! It's good to hear that you only need to use a small amount!xx
