Benefits the Porefessional primer REVIEW!!




Primers in general are used under makeup and help create a smooth appearance to the skin. They help minimize pores, wrinkles, and fine lines. Some also contain sunscreen and mattifiers as well as some that lighten pigmentation and hydrate the skin. Benefits Porefessional Primer claims to reduce the size of pores and fine lines as well as help makeup last on the skin. It says you can use it underneath,alone, or above makeup. It also states that it is oil-free and has vitamin E. This product comes in a squeeze tube. It has a silky feel to it and it has a lemon scent. This looks like a light beige color and it goes on and blends into the skin tone. I have to say after I used this product I was amazed. It really does help minimize the pores. Its the best primer that I have used so far. It helps my foundations stay on longer than the other primers. The vitamin E is close to the bottom of the ingredient list which makes it uneffective in the skin. There is also fragrance in this primer, so if you have sensitive skin this might not be the best for you. As well as the lemon extract. This is a skin irritant. This primer doesn't help cancel out oil, so if you have oily skin, you might want to look for one that mattifys to help prevent oil. This Primer is $30 and you can get it at Ulta, Sephora, or Benefit Cosmetics.com.

Pros
- Helps minimize the appearance of pores
- Foundation stays on longer
- silky light weight feel on the skin
- blends into the skins color

Cons
- Contains fragrance
-Contains lemon extract
- Vitamin E is at the bottom of the ingredient list, so it is not effective



Overall I do like this primer it works very well. However due to the fact it contains fragrance and it has lemon extract in it, I would look around at other products. This does a great job at minimizing the appearance of pores, fine lines and wrinkles so I will give this product a 7/10.
