My addiction to Poressional!

In the month of January, it has now become an annual event named "Pore O Clock" by Benefit
This is promoting their Number one best selling primer the Porefessional.

Before last year, I had used the Porefessional primer, but not really understood the benefit's (excuse the pun!) of using a primer. 
But, then in January 2014 this happened...

I only went and won the Benefit Cosmetics UK Pore O Clock weekly competition! 
And my life changed... Sort of...

Well, my life of make up bases change, and now I cannot live without it!

I know that the big price tag on Porefessional of £24.50 puts a lot of people off straight away, but it lasts me about 2-3 months per tube and I wear make up 6 days a week. So, I think that is pretty great value.

The Benefit Porefessional is to minimize pores, which I had no intention or care about erasing. However, it also acts a fabulous make up base for foundation and powders, and is a non greasy formula. I need the latter as my face is an oily mess by lunch time!

By using a pea size amount squeezed from the tube, and applied all over my face; cheeks, chin, nose and forehead, It is a lovely silky coating.
So silky in fact, that I have got my manager addicted to it, and on the first day of use, she ran in shouting "feel my face" ...!! It is delightful and silky though, so the statement was understandable, sort of.

In all honesty, the coating I put up on 7.30am lasts me all day, with no need for touch ups. Even in summer when I am sweating my bottom off, it still sits proudly on my face.

Pore O Clock comes from the "touch up" times at 4pm, where usually we all are powdering our noses, and checking we still look office fabulous for the last hour or so of work.

This is my cannot live without product now, and I rarely go a day without it.
It also doesn't clog up my skin, I have never had a reaction to it and I have tried many other primers, such as Smashbox, No7 and Illamasqua, all being jelly types, that just don't last as long as this!

I recommend this to everyone, and you won't be disappointed come 4pm!
