Benefit Porefessional License To Blot Review

Benefit Porefessional License To Blot Review

Hello Lovelies, 

If you're a regular blog reader or social media lover or both, I'm sure you'll have heard about Benefits new addition to their POREfessional range, Benefit POREfessional License To Blot. Today I'm going to share my thoughts on it. 

What Benefit Say About License To Blot

BLOT on the spot! This instant oil-blotting stick with tiny invisible blotting spheres mattifies shine for up to 6 hours after application.* The specially designed triangular tip targets shiny zones…the sides of your nose, forehead and chin. Oil has finally met its matte!

My Thoughts

I have very dry and dehydrated skin so when I received the POREfessional License To Blot I thought it may not be for me because I don't have an oily skin and it is an instant oil blotting stick,  but that said I do have issues with shine control, because of my super dry skin and having to use rich moisturisers and skin care products my skin can often look very shiny so I wondered if it would help with that and also help with my pores which are an issue for me. 

The License To Blot comes in a triangular shaped tube with a wheel at the base so you can twist the product up to use it, the triangular design makes application easy and I did find it super easy to use. I apply the product over my make up before I powder to my forehead and chin where I find I look most shiny and to my nose, the sides of my nose and my cheeks where I feel my pores are visible.

I find the best way for me to use the product is to use a light hand and either apply straight from the tube or use my ring finger and rub it around the top of the product and then dab the product onto the areas I want it, I do have to say my make up does come off onto the product and this is something I don't like so for me using my ring finger is my preferred method when using the product and although my make up does come off onto the product my make up doesn't slide or move when using it which is something I did have concerns about. 

The product is colourless on the skin and did a great job of concealing my pores and banishing the shine from my forehead and chin, I wouldn't say I agreed with the product lasting 6 hours, for me it was more like 4 but it's a nice compact tube and can be easily stored in my handbag should I need to touch up on the go. 

Overall Thoughts

The License To Blot is mostly targeted at oil control but for me it is the ability to conceal my pores I am most impressed with, it did do a great job of eliminating shine but the effect it had on my pores was extremely impressive, I really liked it and think for the amount I need to use the price isn't bad either. 

Obviously I can't speak for oily skins but for me it's a great little product for my pores and shine control. If you would like to try the Benefit License To Blot it is available from the Benefit website, Boots, Debenhams and Feel Unique and is priced at £15.50. 

Thank you for reading, much love as always,
