Benefits POREfessional is a primer that also minimises the appearance of pores it’s a neutral colour and blends with your foundation to match your skin colour. There website http://www.benefitcosmetics.co.uk/product/view/parentsku/THEPOIB184?intid=comp_00000002DR is one of the most useful I have found. It claims to minimise pores and smooth the skin. It can be applied on top of or under make up and will help your foundation stay in place. The main thing I love about this product is the fact it contains Vitamin E derivative which protects the skin from free radicals. It's translucent and oil-free which means you can hardly tell its still there.
Benefit products are a little on the expensive side so I do suggest doing some research before purchasing but if the product sounds good you can always go into Boots, Debenhams, or elsewhere and they usually have a counter that you can test the products (or have one of the lovely ladies help give you a make-over.) Now there are a lot of products available on the website
My Personal Experience
Now I am a fan of Benefit but I have to admit I only brought this product out of guilt (and pressure) I was having my make up done by one of their representatives and at the end she asked the dreaded question "so can I interest you in any of our products" now after this free makeover I had to by something and I do have noticeable pores on my nose and chin so I thought why not. Now I will admit it does not completely make your pores disappeared but it does reduce them and it does make your skin feel so soft it’s unbelievable. Overall I do like this product but if you’re looking for miracles it probably won’t be here however if you’re looking for a nice primer I would suggest this (after some own research.)
Clinique's take the day off make up remover is the 2011 make up remover winner (SHE magazine Beauty awards) is for "lids, lashes and lips" Clinique's website http://www.clinique.co.uk/product/1673/5380/Skin-Care/CleansersMakeup-Removers/Take-The-Day-Off-Makeup-Remover-For-Lids-Lashes-Lips/index.tmpl allows little information about the product but does say that it loosens the grip that some make up prides itself on. It also says that it has a unique two-way formula but provides little information on this only saying it loosens and gets rid of unwanted make up.
Clinique are known for their fragrance free and for being allergy tested although they are kind of pricey in comparison to others on the market there product do just the job and you do get what you pay for. Clinique products are available in boots and some department stores however what’s different about them is that they do have their own shops placed around the place however if you are unable to go to these you can order online at
My Personal Experience
Now I started using this product not that long ago and to start with I really disliked it I found it oily and it left a layer on my skin however when I actually read the directions of use I learnt that you had to shake it before use and I have to admit when I did this I found that I wasn’t left with any problems in fact I found it wonderful it did everything it said and if I’m honest it is now my personal favourite. I would recommend it to anyone and you only have to use such a small amount per day it’s more like an investment. It not only leaves your skin clean but fresh and revived.
