Benefit Cosmetics has just announced that two new products are joining its POREfessional collection! This successful franchise, developed to help you minimize the appearance of pores, now welcomes the Matte Rescue Invisible-Finish Mattifying Gel and POREfessional Instant Wipeout Masks. The novelties will be available exclusively at Benefit online, on 15th January 2016, and elsewhere from January 30, 2016.
As announced by the brand, the POREfessional Matte Rescue is an invisible-finish mattifying gel that eliminates shine and absorbs excess surface oil. This lightweight, water-based gel, formulated with soft-focus blurring diamond powder, leaves a natural-looking matte finish and instantly diminishes the look of pores. The innovative formula not only eliminates shine and blurs pores, but also provides much needed moisture, to keep your skin soft and supple all day long. The gel can be used instead of your regular moisturizer, or on top of it – if your skin needs a little bit more moisture. Benefit recommends applying a thin layer of the product all over face, but if your cheeks tend to be dry, only apply to your T-zone.
Personally, since I have combination skin, I use mattifying products on my nose, chin, and forehead, to prevent excess shine. The product I have just recently started to use is SKINN cosmetic’s Orchid Gel, which proved fantastic, even though it creates a flat matte finish. If you’re looking for a natural matte look, benefit’s Invisible-Finish Mattifying Gel could be a better solution, even though I highly recommend the Orchid Gel (more about his product in a separate review). Benefit POREfessional Matte Rescue retails at £21.50 for a 50ml tube.
Benefit’s new POREfessional Instant Wipeout Masks are also joining the range in January 2016. The masks are designed for consumers with combination skin, oily T-zone, and enlarged pores. This is a dual-sided product, a sheet mask and a capsule, designed to clean out and smooth out the look of pores on your nose, forehead and chin. In addition, it also helps exfoliate skin and wipes out impurities and excess sebum. To use it, burst the capsule and apply the mask over your nose and inner cheeks, use a textured fabric to purify your pores. Let it work for about 5 minutes, and then use the mask to exfoliate your skin. There are 8 masks in a box, which retails at £24.50.Advertisement
