The Benefit Porefessional Primer is a product that many people swear by to fill in large pores but it’s $32.00 for 0.75 ounces and more importantly, it’s not cruelty free. I was very excited, however, when I got a sample size with an Ulta order. My goal was to try it and find a more affordable and cruelty free dupe, which I believe I have done.
There is one primer that I use daily because I can actually see a difference in my pores when I use it and that is the Hard Candy Pore Defense Primer Serum. This primer is available at WalMart and is $8.00 for 1.62 ounces. It’s obviously a much more affordable option than the Benefit Porefessional but does it work as well?
In my opinion, it works better. I have very large pores and I didn’t notice much of a difference when I used the Benefit Porefessional. The Hard Candy Primer not only fills in my pores but it helps my makeup to last longer and is oil and silicone free.
I have tried so many pore filling primers and the Hard Candy Primer Serum always comes out on top. If you’re looking for a cruelty free dupe for the Benefit Porefessional or just a good pore filling primer in general, I don’t think you’d regret trying this one. I’d love to know what you’re favorite pore filling primer is! Thanks for reading and have a great day!
