Let’s take a break from skincare this week. What I like about makeup is you can tell if it works great even after one use. I got these samples few months ago. How? I read Benefit Philippines’ post and they were giving away samples. You just have to present the screenshot to their SAs. I claimed mine at Rustans Makati. I suggest you like their facebook page because they have random giveaways.
I’ve never tried anything from this brand. Youtubers and bloggers are talking about their Porefessional line and mascara. I grabbed the chance to get some samples. Who knows, I might like them and I’ll buy the full size? 🙂 Let’s start:

It does what it claims to do. It minimized my pores. I like that it doesn’t feel heavy on the skin. You can definitely use makeup over or under it. ☺️
I recommend this to any skin type especially for oily skin. It’s very easy to apply because of its silky texture. This has matte finish and I like that. It gives extra moisture as well. This can be used alone/without makeup. 😊
Will I buy the full size tube? Yes, I’d get it if I already have a budget. I dont use primers at all but this one from Benefit is really good!! Now I know why this product is raved by a lot of people. 😊❤️
