I am always on the lookout for new face primers. With combination skin, I tend to get oily, especially on my nose. Add in a dose of New York City summer heat and I am suffering from paranoia over my pores! That brings me to my latest find, Benefit Cosmetics’ the POREfessional, a balm that minimizes the appearance of pores.
This balm glides on as smooth as silk, leaving a flawless foundation for your makeup. I am impressed by how light this oil-free formula is. You can use it over or under your makeup. And sometimes I even use it when I am going makeup free. It leaves a matte finish and your skin feels velvety smooth all day. I recommend this primer for after your moisturizer, with touch-ups throughout the day. I find that it even helps control oil. One of the best things about the POREfessional is that it works well on all skin tones, so you can use this balm year round, regardless of seasons when you may have more of a tan.
