The Porefessional

I am sure everyone is familiar with this product as it has been famous in the blogging world for quite a while now. I got this for my birthday back in February and at first I couldn't really see a difference so I stopped using it.  It was only when I stopped using it that I noticed how much difference it had made to my make-up. 

The application of my make-up felt much smoother as did my skin with this product. I do have oily to combination skin so I do need a primer especially in my t-zone otherwise my foundation doesn't last for more than a few hours. I have definitely found that my make-up is staying in place more with this product and my skin doesn't look or feel as oily. 

The main thing that attracted me to the porefessional was the claim that it minimises pores. I hate it when my pores can be seen through my make-up therefore I was desperate to get my hands on this. While this product does not hide my pores altogether (does such a product even exist??) it does minimise them and I have noticed the difference. This product will be a permanent feature in my make-up bag for the foreseeable future. 

One gripe I do have about this product is the price, it is £23.50 for 10ml which is a little bit ridiculous, I think that £15-£20 would be more reasonable. That said, I will definitely be repurchasing this when I run out as I really do love it. While the product is expensive for the small amount you get, it has to be said that a little goes a long away. On days were I am not going to be wearing make-up for a long period of time I just tend to put it on my t-zone so you don't need to smoother it all over your face. I would really recommend this product and if you are not willing to spend £23.50 on it then you can get your hands on a travel size in next months Glamour magazine. I will definitely be stocking up a £2 an issue.
