Elf Poreless Primer* - First Impressions ❤


When this arrived on my door step the other day, I let out a little squeal of excitement! I have been wanting to try a new pore minimising primer for a long time as I kept running out my benefit Porefessional and it has a hefty price tag!  I have been on the hunt for a cheaper alternative for a long time now with little success so I was glad to be able to try this.

When I first pumped it on the back of my hand, I was relieved that it is more like a creamy moisturiser consistency rather than a clear, silicony sort of primer like the Maybelline Baby Skin which felt horrible.  It is quite a light, almost moussey formula which glides onto the skin.  It is very similar to the porefessional primer in the way that it feels velvety on the skin and glides on to your skin, filling in your pores and fine lines.

The smell of the primer screams tea tree and spot cream which I suppose is a good thing really.  I am very particular about smells so I thought this best to mention for all of you smell freaks like me! It claims to be infused with tea tree and vitamins A&E for anti-aging and restorative benefits.  When I read this, I immediately fell in love with it even more.  The fact that it makes your skin look amazing as well as improving the overall condition of it makes the product a whole lot better.

I didn't find that my makeup lasted longer with this, but I never had that with the professional either.  It doesn't mattify the skin and keep shine at bay as much as I hoped but its not a huge deal when you consider all the other benefits of this product.

Overall, I think this is actually better than the porefessional and I will definitely be repurchasing!  At £6.95 compared to the porefessional that is priced at £25.00, there really is no contest!  Elf have recently come out with many new products that are available to all of us Brits and you can find them all here so I definitely suggest you head over there for a mooch around!

Let me know if you try out this product and what your thoughts are!
