The Porefessional and That Gal Primer Review!

Monday, June 04, 2012

These products are probably the most blogged about over the weekend. As you probably already know by now July's Glamour magazine (out now) had Benefit products as a free gift. I decided not to get the Bad Gal Lash mascara as I have had it before and I desperately wanted to try out the other two products!

The POREfessional claims to "Quickly minimise the appearance of pores & fine lines for smoother-than-smooth skin! Apply this silky, lightweight balm alone, under or over makeup. Translucent, oil-free formula complements all skin tones and helps makeup stay put. Contains a Vitamin E derivative, known to protect skin from free radicals"

I suffer from large pores and after hearing so many good things about this product I had to try it. And I have to say I am impressed. My pores have disappeared. Which is incredible. The POREfessional costs around £23 and I think it's worth every penny. And I think I may even splurge out on it and for me that's a big deal!

It's rare for me to buy two indentical magazines but when you get some amazing products free I had to. So I picked up That Gal Primer too!

"That Gal" Primer claims to "take your complexion from dull to darling! Simply blend it on for the look of brighter, smoother skin. Contains light-reflecting pigments to help brighten all skin tones and raspberry & camomile to soothe skin."

I have never used a primer before so testing this product out was going to be exciting. Again I was really impressed. The primer keeps my make up on all day which is great when I am at work and don't have time to retouch my make up at all. Would I buy this primer? I have to say I much prefer The POREfessional it too keeps my make up in place and minimises my pores perfectly!

Now go out and buy your copies of Glamour magazine!!
