Benefit’s POREfessional really needs no introduction – chances are, you’ve already come across at least several rave reviews in magazines and online about how this is the “holy grail primer”, with the ability to smooth over enlarged pores, and keep your makeup looking fresh for a longer time.


If you haven’t had the chance to try it (but why???), the October edition of the NYLON Singapore x Vanity Trove Beauty Box is your chance, since a mini version of the POREfessional is included in this month’s offerings.

Let us just verify all that’s been said of this product, that it really is worth the hype. What we like most about it is the texture, which feels slightly denser than a gel, yet still goes on really light on the skin. When the opaque, flesh-toned balm goes onto the skin, it immediately blurs enlarged pores so your makeup can go onto a canvas that’s as smooth as possible. It has a mattifying effect as well, which you can immediately feel, so you know your face will stay shine-free throughout the day.

So if you’ve never given the POREfessional a shot, we can’t think of a better time than this edition of the Beauty Box (since it comes with so many other trial-sized goodies as well).


Try out the Benefit POREfessional in the October edition of our NYLON Singapore x Vanity Trove Beauty Box. $38, available here.
