REVIEW: Benefit Operation Pore-Proof Kit

Introducing the new Operation Pore-Proof from Benefit!  I swear they make the cutest little kits and gift boxes and this is no exception!

This is perfect for those who suffer from oily skin and want a little bit of added protection throughout the day to help their skin stay matte and their makeup on for longer.
It includes miniatures of 5 of their products, the perfect handbag and travelling sizes.

Pore-Fessional Primer: This primer needs no introduction as it already has a cult following in the blogging world so I’m happy I now have a mini size for my makeup bag!

Pore-Fessional License To Blot: I love this new product – it’s almost like a little prit-stick (without the glue!) which you can wipe over your T-Zone to instantly blot.  Full review coming soon.

PoreFessional Agent Zero Shine:  Simply tap this powder into the lid, swirl with your brush and buff into the skin for an instantly matte complexion.

Dr Feelgood: I think this must have been the first Benefit product I EVER tried when I was around 17!  I haven’t used it since but remember loving it – it’s a velvety balm that removes shine and leaves you with super soft skin.  You can wear it under or over makeup which makes it the perfect handbag accessory!

Shy Beam: This is possibly my favourite out of the bunch and it’s only currently available IN this kit!  Shy Beam is a matte version of High Beam which looks so pretty on the skin, leaving you with a  natural looking glow.  I hope they realise a full size version of this soon!

This kit retails at £28.50 and is available online and in Benefit stores/counters!  If you haven’t tried any of these products before it might be a good idea to invest in this and try them out to see what works best for your skin, and this also makes a lovely gift for Benefit fans!

What’s your favourite mattifying beauty product?

    I am such a sucker for products aimed at pores, so this looks amazing to me!

    I've seen so many good things about this set, I really need to get my hands on it! I love the idea of trying out a whole selection of their products in one hit

    Absolutely gorgeous – as always!!
    Really wanting to try out Shy Beam, hopefully they bring out a full size like you said! Benefit are about to relaunch here in South Africa next month, so flipping excited. We have been without Benefit for two years!
    My absolute favourite mattifying beauty product would be the affordable mattifying CC powder from Catrice 🙂

    Love the look of this kit! It's so cute. Shy Beam looks awesome, I wonder if they will release a full size version if this little one gets high praise x

    What a cool kit! The only one I have is POREfessional primer which is great. I'm currently using blotting tissues! X

    I don't have very oily skin at all, but I want this just for the packaging. Benefit has some of the cutest packaging out there!

    Just ordered the Benefit Does the Hoola kit, and this beauty is first in next month whishlist !
    I love poreprofessional I have full size (well finished it and re bought it several times) and always have a mini in my bag, I am always looking for the perfect primer, setting powder are lovely too the Laura Mercier pressed setting powder is magic and Sephora Smoothing and Brightening powder is quite nice (and cheaper).

    I just love the look of all the Benefit miniature kits, but I always have to tell myself to 'put that down!' as i'm not much for beauty on the go and prefer full sized products! I have the porefessional primer, but I don't really think it is much more effective than the Rimmel and Revlon primers I have used in the past. I have gigantic pores and was hoping that it would do the trick, but no such luck! 🙁 Lovely post!xx

    This looks like such a fabulous kit! Cannot wait to get my hands on it 🙂

    The temptation to snap this up right now! I've been eyeing up the full sized versions of Pore-fessional and Dr Feel Good for a while but my skin is so temperamental and reactionary, I scared myself out of splashing out the cash. Thank you for reviewing this, you are an absolute star! x

    Lovely review! I am certainly adding this to my list, a little of everything and the Benefit gift sets are always a tremendous value 🙂

    This is something that we all go through in one way or another. The information on this kit is dead on and seems to match what is needed. Will be looking into these kits.
