I know this product has been out for a long time now but I just had the perfect opportunity to get one for myself last week when I was at Mall of the Emirates and Benefit had a kiosk outside Wojooh and the sales lady enticed me with a free bag if I get three items!

No, I did not get three items and I did not get my free bag but I thought to myself, oh well this could be a nice addition to my kit since my Face Atelier Ultra Matte Mattifier is almost finished.

To get to the point, is The POREfessional a worthy replacement to the Face Atelier Ultra Matte Mattifier?

I’ve used The POREfessional for over a week now and I’m not too happy with the results. Yes, it left my skin smooth and yes, it gave that blurring effect but after 4-5 hours, I noticed that it makes my skin look like it’s peeling unlike when I use my Face Atelier Ultra Foundation on its own. (Read post about Face Atelier Ultra Foundation here)

I have combination skin and even though the weather is changing here in Dubai, my skin doesn’t really get affected and doesn’t go dry. In fact, colder weather makes my skin look better.

The Verdict

I still think that Face Atelier Ultra Matte Mattifier is a better primer especially for people with combination to oily skin. The product is a multitasker, it could be used before and after make up. It’s the perfect primer to vanish out shine and a spritz after make up helps your make up mattify and hold longer. It also claims to be the first silicone-based spray mattifier.
