Today I'm showing you a Benefit cult product: the Porefessional! 

Benefit always has original packagings. They can even make a pore balm look great. The box looks like an action figure box. How original is that? She even comes with a pore-zapping ray gun! The tube itself is -like the box- in a striped, light turquoise color. 

The Porefessional is, of course, a balm that minimizes pores. But next to that it also has some other purposes: mattifying shininess, priming the skin for make-up and smoothing the skin. The reason I wanted to try this out is to cover some fine lines. 

You can use it under your make-up on moisturized skin. Just focus on the problem areas and blend it out with your fingertips. But you can also use it over your make-up, then you better pat it on and blend again.

The Porefessional has such a lovely texture. At first it's a tinted balm like you see on the swatch, but when you pat it in, it becomes very powdery. There is a mix of various silicons in this balm, because the Porefessional fills little holes in the skin. 

It feels very pleasant, and you only need a little bit to cover fine lines. It covered mine very well, and mattified the shiny spots. It also is a great make-up primer for those places, my foundation stayed much longer. (Foundation and oily spots do not go together.)

There is also a little manual with some tips and tricks included, which always comes in handy with products like these.

I'm pleased with the results of my Porefessional. It does a lot for me: priming, mattifying and covering fine lines. That's quite a lot for one little tube!

Have you ever tried a Benefit product?
