Benefit’s the POREfessional.

After writing about POREFessional, I had to go get a tube and let me tell you its better than I hoped. The product is so smooth and felt airy and light on my skin. It leaves my face silky smooth and barely a pore in sight. I find its most effective on my skin when I use it as the last step in my makeup routine. Another superb Benefit product!

Translucent, oil-free formula complements all skintones and helps makeup stay put. Contains a Vitamin E derivative, known to protect skin from free radicals.

  • Apply the POREfessional from the center of the face outward by patting lightly with fingertips…pay particular attention to the T-zone area. Keep it in your bag for touch-ups during the day.

Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow.

 

I tried the new Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow,  after a brow wax at the Benefit Beauty Bar and its amazing. It felt so light and refreshing, even though I could barely feel it on my skin it provided really great coverage evening out my skin tone.

It will be perfect for summer I can’t stand heavy foundation but at 35 I need something that will even out my skin. Not only is this foundation light and airy it really left my skin looking flawless. I can’t wait to finish my current foundation so I can justify a bottle of Oxygen Wow! If you are on the fence check out the reviews, can’t argue with that many happy customers.
