Viral Beauty: Level UP Your Winter IT Girl Routine with Benefit

Beyond their iconic hoola bronzers and revolutionary brow range, Benefit’s new POREfessional skincare range was crafted by masters in pore care to precisely and effortlessly treat enlarged pores and uneven skin complexions. 

But what exactly are pores?

Pores are the tiny openings in our skin that house hair follicles and sebaceous glands – they help us sweat, cool off, and keep our skin looking healthy. Pores are as unique as your fingerprints are, and as much as they’re an essential part of our skin, when clogged, they can lead to acne and breakouts. 

Jared Bailey, Benefit’s global brow, beauty authority and licensed esthetitian, cites that whilst you can never completely get rid of your pores, there are many ways to visibly shrink and reduce their appearance, and doing so has a myriad of benefits for our skin, not just aesthetically (you can read more about what causes pores from Jared here). 

Over the past 30 days, I’ve been trialing the complete Benefit Porefessional range, and as someone who struggles with an oily T-zone and visible pores, I can confidently say I noticed a clear difference in my skin after using the complete range. Designed to work effortlessly in-line with each product in the range, Benefit’s total Porefessional line-up has changed the game for those dealing with oily skin patches and acne. Post-treatment, my skin now boasts a smoother, more refined and even texture, with visibly minimised pores and a flawless skin canvas to pop my make-up onto. 

Weather you’re after a total skincare routine refresh, or a single targeting treatment, Benefit’s POREfessional range is the Winter glow-getter you need to pop on your radar this season.

Porefessional Deep Retreat Pore Clay Mask

Benefit Cosmetics
Price: $62.00

The hero product of the range and my personal favourite, the porefessional deep retreat clay mask gets to work on your skin in just 30 minutes, leaving behind clog-free, mattified and healthy-looking skin. This mask is unique in that you can see it working from the moment it’s applied, visibly drawing out oils and gunk from your pores as it dries, and leaving small dots on your face behind from its work. Made with sea fennel extract and mineral-rich kaolin clay, it’s mattifying without feeling tight, so your skin is soft and comfortable throughout the whole process. Rinse off and repeat weekly for long-term minimised pores and your softest skin.

Porefessional Wow Polish Triple Pore Exfoliating Powder

Benefit Cosmetics
Price: $89.00

Exfoliating shouldn’t feel like scraping your face with sandpaper or rocks; if it does, you’re not doing it right. Benefit’s triple pore exfoliating powder is a water-activated pore polish that gently combines 3 different fine powders to create a foamy, smoothing, and purifying wash – Seriously, once you’ve tried powder exfoliants, you’ll never go back. Simply tip a small amount into damp hands (a little goes a LONG way) and lather with water until completely mixed. Then, using circular motions, buff it into the skin and rinse off with warm water. Enriched with perlite to help absorb excess oils, and lactic acid to visibly reduce pores, It’s the at-home pore minimizer that evens skin tone and texture without the skin-stripping feeling. Use once weekly for long-term oil and enlarged pore control.

Porefessional Hydro-Pop Hydrating and Smoothing Pore Essence

Price: $110.00

The epitome of skincare magic and the ultimate addition to every IT girl’s morning routine, a skin essence is the “essential” step to elevate your morning routine for plump, bouncy skin. This water-based, gel-like hydrating essence glides on the skin to effortlessly prep it for skincare and make-up, with oil-based nutrients and microbubbles working overtime to plump up and smooth out the skin. Apply with your fingers onto clean, dry skin as step 1 of your routine, and follow up with your standard skincare ritual for a more evenly radiant skin complexion. With Rose Hip extract to visibly reduce pores and fermented camellia flower seed oil for extra nourishment, you’ll feel pampered and perfected with every application.
