I have been featuring Benefit Cosmetics a lot on my blog lately, haven’t I? I’ve got more Benefit make-up than any other brand (obsessed? me? no…) and as they have launched a lot of new and exciting beauty products recently, I am currently working my way through the collection!
Banish Oil And Minimise Appearance Of Pores | Benefit POREfessional Matte Rescue
Benefit’s POREfessional range is so popular that they keep adding more to the family! No complains from me, the more the better!
They have brought out a new cosmetic product, the POREfessional: Matte Rescue* which is an invisible-finish mattifying gel. It does two things which are to minimise the appearance of pores and absorbs excess oil.
Of course, it's also completely fine to apply the Matte Rescue on it’s own. However, if you choose to apply a primer in addition to the Matte Rescue gel, then I would suggest putting the primer on first and then Matte Rescue. Otherwise, the gel may rub off rendering it less effective.
Wait for a couple of minutes for the gel to absorb before following it up with your choice of BB cream or liquid foundation. This just sets everything in place as well as sorting out your pores and oils and all that other good stuff!
It is another step to take in your make-up routine, and it is another layer of make-up on your skin. I personally only use it on certain areas of my face like my T-Zone and the chin area. The formula, as you can see, has minty blue tint to it but I promise you that it dries invisible and you won’t look like a Smurf. It is completely translucent so you can apply it to areas of concern.
And did I mention that it contains DIAMOND powder? Diamond powder and diamond dust is known for it's soft-focus blurring effect on skin to give you a 'selfie-ready' flawless finish. Oh, I do love a bit of soft-focus! I think diamond powder is something we're going to be hearing a lot about this year!
