Daniel Sandler Retexturizing Primer vs Benefit Porefessional

4th February 2013 in Makeup, Uncategorised - 32 Comments - 3 min read

Hey Beauties!
I thought I would do a little post on this because I often see people talking about the Porefessional. I bought the Porefessional ages ago and i dont think ive used it that much maybe on a few shoots. It didn’t really appeal to me i didn’t see much difference when i applied to peoples skin it honestly for me didn’t seem like it was doing anything.

I recently bought the Daniel Sandler Retexturizing Primer before Christmas, in November i think and to be honest i have used this one every single shoot ive done. It out performs the Porefessional on every level.

They both have similar ingredients but i feel the differences that are there make a bit change to the product, Daniel Sandler Retexturizing Primer fills in lines and minimizes pores it helps to even out the skin so you get a nice base to work on so when applying foundation its a dream what i love about it is, that its an all in one its minimizes everything but its also a primer as it says so it helps to keep the foundation on longer where as i find with the Porefessional it is supposed to shrink pores but i dont really notice any big difference when using it on clients or on myself

LEFT: Daniel Sandler Retexturizing Primer
RIGHT: Benefit Porefessional

As you can see from above the Daniel Sandler Retexturizing Primer lists everything it does and lists the ingredients which i really like because i like to know what in what im putting on clients.
Both of these are silicone based which i love in primes because it fills things in and gives a silky smooth texture to work on they are best kind of primers in my opinion

I find that with the Daniel Sandler Retexturizing Primer under foundation the wear time is longer usually under studio lights things dont last long but with this it lasts longer than normally usually you dont use SPF products with flash photography but i find this photographs well so you dont have to worry about a white cast or the SPF washing you out

Daniel Sandler Retexturizing Primer contains 28ml of product for £20.50 and the Benefit Porefessional contains 22ml for £23.50 so you are getting more for your money with the Daniel Sandler Retexturizing Primer but if you like the Porefessional keep using it, i am just trying to show different products out there that people can use you by my means need to use it

You can purchase the Daniel Sandler Retexturizing Primer from and the Benefit Porefessional from

What do you think of these?
