My views on Benefit The Porefessional:

Primers have been a must have in my makeup routine not only for the easy application of makeup but also for it to stay longer. Benefit is one brand that has fascinated me because of its quality and packaging. While I had been to Sephora in the UAE I had tried The Porefessional and was very convinced I needed it but unfortunately for me it was out of stock and I got it through my maasi.

I adore the Benefits fancy packaging quite a lot! I absolutely love the light blue and white plastic tube with black cap. It comes with a tiny nozzle which is enough to squeeze the required amount of product. A very little product is required to cover the face. 

For me Primer becomes an absolute must have mainly because I have many pores that needs to be 
minimized, and Benefit The Porefessional does reduce the appearance of the pores without clogging them. Though the result is temporary, but I like it. Mainly because this does cover up my imperfection like a pro and makes the application of foundation easy. The make up does last longer with primer underneath.

The Benefit The Porefessional is slightly tinted but then it is fully translucent once applied. I feel its a great primer for oily skin girls because the finish is matte. The texture of the primer is silky, oil-free and is very light-weight like most primers but it does not have any kind of shimmer. This primer is a silicone based which might irritate a few but for me its absolutely perfect. This product has not caused any breakouts. It does not have any particular fragrance though!

1. Temporarily reduces the size of the pores.
2. Makes the application of the makeup easy.
3. Makes the makeup last really long.
4. The texture is silky, light-weight and absolutely oil-free.
5. The finish is velvet-like and matte.
6. The packaging is fancy and cute.
7. Travel friendly since its a small tube.
8. Did not break me out


1. Has silicone. It may bother some but for me I am okay.
2. Pricey! 
3. Availability is the biggest con.


Benefit The Porefessional is a good primer to all those having pores as a major concern. This gives an illusion that the pores are reduced. The makeup lasts longer with this under. You can also touch up over the makeup too.
