Beauty Review – The Porefessional by Benefit & get it free with Glamour magazine!


I was lucky enough to get my hands on a copy of this month’s Glamour magazine, which has been very sparsely stocked in the local newsagent’s due to the fabulous Benefit freebies being given away with the July 2012 copy.


Glamour is offering a choice of 3 Benefit beauty treats including a mascara, primer and the cult favourite Porefessional pore minimiser, which is what I plumped for at the newstand. The packaging looks gorgeous with lovely ice-cream colours and retro cartoon image, really cute!

I couldn’t wait to try out the product so I popped a bit on immediately (yes, it can be used over make up) and it was a lovely silky texture that settled onto my skin nicely. When I’ve tried it before applying makeup I got even better results; it certainly does minimise pores and fine lines, and I found that I needed to use less of my foundation than normal. It lasted well on my face – a good day’s worth and although this tester product is only a 7.5ml tube you only really need a tiny squirt of the liquid so I expect it’ll still last me a while and I’m just pleased to be able to test out a product on my own skin before buying the full-size version.

So get your hands on these freebies (apparently worth at least £10 each) before they sell out! Plus you’ve got a magazine to enjoy too and this issue is Glamour’s famous Woman of the Year 2012 copy, so different covers featuring the winning ladies are available with each product – Mine has Fearne Cotton looking glamourous in a fluffy faux-fur coat!

Let me know if you’ve tried out these Benefit freebies and what you think of them – leave me a comment below 🙂
