There’s an exciting new Benefit launch, and it’s the Benefit The POREfessional Lite Primer, which is the latest addition to join the Benefit POREfessional primer collection.
Right now, there’s already the original POREfessional, POREfessional Pearl and POREfessional Hydrate, so this is the fourth addition to the primer range. There’s also the POREfessional Matte Rescue Gel, but that’s a little different to the other primers.
The original version of Benefit POREfessional is a beige coloured gel cream, which feels quite slimy due to how much silicone there is within the formula, as it’s the silicone which blurs the skin.
I find the original to be amazing for its blurring benefits, but it’s very drying and mattifying for my dry skin. The Pearl version isn’t my favourite, as it’s shimmery rather than being luminous, and the Hydrate version is OK, but again, it’s not my favourite.
So this new Benefit The POREfessional Lite Primer might be the perfect alternative, offering the amazing blurring benefits of the original, but with a lighter formula, and I can’t wait to try it.
Just like the original, the Benefit The POREfessional Lite Primer is going to be available in two sizes; the full size and a mini, which is ideal as we can try the mini size before splashing out on the full sized tube.

So the Benefit The POREfessional Lite Primer is described as being silicone free, but still works to blur the appearance of pores, whilst prolonging the longevity of your makeup.
- feels breathable
- translucent on skin
- natural finish
- 98% said it feels weightless**
- 98% said it feels like nothing on skin**
It’s supposedly got the same “power” as the original POREfessional, with a special blend of pore-blurring powders to blue and refine the pores for twelve hours.
It’s a 73% water-based formula, which gives the product its cloud-like lightness, and that really appeals to me, as it sounds like it’ll be super hydrating too. It is now officially available across the world and you’ll find it right here.
