Rise And Prime With The Two New Additions To The Benefit POREfessional Family


New Benefit POREfessional Review

There are certain products that are synonymous with certain brands and that's exactly what the POREfessional Face Primer is when it comes to Benefit. It's one of those products that is universally raved about and quite rightly so. So when they announced that they were expanding the POREfessional range that's when things get really exciting. They added the POREfessional Agent Zero Shine to the POREfessional family in 2013 and the POREfessional License To Blot last year but they've not stopped there. This year marks the release of two brand new POREfessional products; the POREfessional Matte Rescue* and the POREfessional Instant Wipeout Masks*. So let's see exactly what these two new releases bring to the table;

Benefit POREfessional Matte Rescue

First up we have The POREfessional Matte Rescue. Unlike the original POREfessional, this isn't just a primer, this is a lightweight gel based primer and moisturiser hybrid. And unlike the original POREfessional Primer, it doesn't have that silicone feel to it. The blue gel sinks into the skin to become clear instead of sitting on the surface like a traditional primer would do and this makes for real easy foundation application thereafter.

Matte Rescue has been designed specifically to simultaneously absorb surface oil and shine, blur imperfections and pores and hydrate, all at the same time and I have to say, I'm certainly impressed with the way it's worked on my pores and T-Zone in particular. And don't be put off by the word matte. This definitely leaves you with a natural looking matte finish, instead of a flat matte one, thanks to the hydrating quality of the gel.

Benefit POREfessional Instant Wipeout Masks

Then we have the POREfessional Instant Wipeout Masks. First of all, how fantastic is the packaging when it comes to this product? Benefit always tend to hit it out of the park when it comes to the look of their products but this is on another level for me. And the packaging isn't just all about aesthetics. The little press button on each individual sachet releases the formula onto the sheet mask. You then peel the packaging apart to reveal a little Batman bat signal shaped mask. Due to the shape of the mask they do work best on areas such as the nose, forehead and chin but there's nothing to say that you can't use it on other areas of the face. They're also specially textured so one side of the mask is smooth whist the other has more of a woven texture to it and this means that you can use that side for some gentle exfoliation.

For me these work best on my nose as that's the one area where I get the most congestion when it comes to my pores. I love the added benefit of having an exfoliating side to the mask and these are a real hit for me. You receive eight masks in each pack so it works out at about £3 a mask which isn't too bad considering the fact that they're pretty revolutionary when it comes to the UK beauty market. I haven't seen anything even slightly similar in the drugstore or the department stores here. Have you?

If you want to try out the two newest additions to the POREfessional range but don't want to fully commit to a full size of each of them just yet, Benefit have released a brilliant POREfessional set named PORES AWAY. This includes mini tubes of the original POREfessional Primer and the new POREfessional Matte Rescue and one POREfessional Instant Wipeout Mask for just £15.50.

So what do you think about these two new additions to the POREfessional range? Do you struggle with enlarged and congested pores? And are you a fan of the original range of POREfessional products?

  5. I have the matte rescue, have done for week over a month now and I really do like it! It has helped my Porefessional last longer, and I don't feel the need to touch up my t-zone with powder as much as I used to. :)
