Product Review: Benefit Cosmetics - POREfessional Balm.

Benefit Cosmetics: POREfessional Balm

Keeping in mind the innumerous pore reducing balms available in the market, i came across this one while in transit. The Sales Associate was kind enough to give me a sample of the product to try out. I have to admit that i am easily attracted to cool packaging, and looking at the above picture you can see how cute this little tube looks.. She also told me that this product doubles as a primer , you can wear it over or under make up and is totally oil-free.. I love oil free products as they don't make your skin shine after having make up on for a few hours! I decided to try this product on my friend for her graduation and it looked fabulous (Hi, nikita! :D ) She has an oily T Zone and after using this product, her graduations pictures looked fabulous! I tried it on myself before going for parties and my skin didn't look dull or oily at the end of the night! Super impressed! I went out and bought the full sized tube immediately! Also this primer is tinted, its a little beige and blends very well with the skin. Overall this product works fabulously on all skin types and all skin tones which is fabulous!

Size of the product compared to price!

Would I repurchase it?: I would definitely like to repurchase it but ill reserve it for special occasions, and also its a bit expensive for daily use, more importantly  I would like to try other brands too.
