Fabulous Freebie



I love freebies, as soon as I saw that Elle had a free mini Benefit Porefessional I knew I had to get it. I'm not sure if this will still be available now as I did get it a couple of weeks ago.

I've never really been into primers, I got the Baby Skin primer but I'm not too keen on it so I wasn't sure what to expect with Porefessional but it totally changed my opinion of them, now I'm wanting to try other primers that aren't as expensive as the Porefessional as the full version is a little bit out of my price range.

Benefit's Porefessional claims to 'minimize the appearance of pores' and that is does, the primer also keeps makeup on a lot longer than without it and keeps my skin from looking too shiny too which I really like, I don't mind a dewy finish but it does tend to get past that if I've worn my foundation for a good few hours.
I like to use the Porefessional either with full makeup or with just concealer and powder (to stop that oily skin) and either way works well with me.

As for the price of the Porefessional (full size) it is £24.50 for 22ml which is a bit too much for me, I worked out that my 7.5ml is worth £8.35 which for such a small bottle is a lot of money. However it does work some amazing magic on those pores so I'm trying to use the least amount possible to make it last.

You can buy the Benefit Porefessional here

Ta ta for now

    1. I'm no expert but it seems to work for my pores on my nose, everyone is different though, the only way to know is to try it

  2. I wish they sold smaller samples so we could try before committing to a huge tube. This is a brilliant freebie to get in a magazine. I'm on the hunt for a good primer for dry skin and I was wondering how the Porefessional would work out. Dammnn I missed out. Gonna keep my eyes peeled from now on. Rosemary x

    1. I agree, that's why as soon as I saw this I knew it was good to buy, it is a really good primer but I'm not sure if it's worth the price tag

  3. I wish I had know that earlier, I would definetely buy it! The price of a full size isn't really convincing ;p

  4. I got this little freebie too and loved it! Although I do think it's a bit pricey too I may be tempted to splash out for the summer!

    1. I have got another mini version of it from a mini benefit kit so I'll see if I really miss it after they've both run out. I need to find another primer that's just as good!

  6. I bought the magazine just to get this freebie :) When your sample runs out, I would definitely recommend the new Instablur primer from The Body Shop, I bought it about a week ago and it is very similar to the Benefit primer :)
