Today’s review is on Benefit Cosmetics The Pore fessional.
Let me begin by saying that I really do love the packaging for this product. I think the art work is adorable. I also like that it comes in a squeeze tube this way unlike pump bottles, when you can’t get it to squeeze anymore out you can cut the plastic and get the very last drop and for what it costs you should be able to access every drop.
As for how it works. Truly, the first few times I used it I didn’t think it was doing much and I thought “oh great, more money wasted a hyped product” but then I watched a lovely young woman on YouTube demonstrate how she uses it and yippie skippy! I used it the same way and I saw results. It acutally blurred my pores I was so shocked. So many products claim to be able to hide pores, minimize pores but I’ve never found any of them to work besides this product. What I was doing was simply squeezing some out and just lightly rubbing it on the area’s of my face where my pores look like craters on the moon. Then I learned that you have to actually pat it into the pores and once you’ve patted it in you then smooth outward.
As for the color as far as I know it doesn’t come in any colors. It’s a translucent oil free formula. Oh and the formula? Its GORGEOUS! It’s SO silky smooth. I love the way it feels on my skin. I almost wish they made a foundation in this formula.. Hmm, maybe they do? I honestly can’t say enough about the formula of this product so I will stop here because I could go on for pages.
It runs approximately $30.00 a tube for 0.75 US fl. oz. for the full size. I bought mine on HauteLook when it was deeply discounted and I got a full size and a travel size. I bought mine about 2 months ago and I am still using the travel size and I use this almost daily. Unless your face is full of pores you only use a little bit on each area per day so it does go a long way in my opinion.
I can say that although it is pricey, after I’ve used up what I have which probably won’t be for months yet I would and will definitely repurchase this product.
