Primers: The Porefessional vs. Sephora Smoothing primer
In today's beauty post, I want to talk about primers. I have never really used any until a year or two ago. I discovered Benefit's The Porefessional through a sample that I was given, and I instantly became a fan. Then a few months ago, I was at Sephora and a sales assistant convinced me to try their smoothing primer. Now, how do these two primers compare and which one do I like best?
As the name suggests it, The Porefessional targets the minimization of pores. To a certain extent it keeps this promise and this is the reason why I was so impressed when I first used it. The appearance of pores is reduced, however, they don't disappear entirely. What I like less about this product is that I have the impression that it dries my skin and since it targets the pores, I only use it on the lower part of my cheeks.
This primer works a bit like the Photoshop skin smoothing brush. I apply on the lower cheek part to reduce the pores, as well as on the forehead and a bit on the chin. It instantly smoothens the skin. Unlike The Porefessional, this gel is transparent and does not dry my skin out.
Conclusion: The Porefessional vs. Smoothing primer: 0-1.
