The newest member to the Porefessional range is Benefit Porefessional License To Blot – an oil blotting stick. The stick itself is in a triangle (eek.. am sure there is a proper name for a long triangle but I’ve no clue what it is – any geometary fans please do dive in!).
I thought it would be interesting to see how much ‘stick’ you get hidden away in the packaging and as you can see, it’s about half the amount that you’d expect if you looked at the packaging alone. At £15.50, this is a very expensive way to blot. The triangle thing is a good idea though, it seems to hug the contours of the nose nicely.
In many ways, I’m not that impressed with this – the materials I have here are giving claims based on a very small group of testers (in one case, 10) and it’s a lot of money. However, like all the Porefessional products, it gives good matte, it’s completely chuck-in-your-bag portable and it’s good to have more oil control options.
Look out for Benefit Porefessional License To Blot from June.

Prism, Jane 🙂
What a strange product…think I’ll stick to blotting sheets
The shape is a triangular prism 🙂
Interesting. It seems worth a try but I wonder if it’s more gimmicky than anything.
I think it’s a ‘handy’ product rather than an essential.
I don’t understand how this works! Surely a sticky blotting stick makes you look more oily? It’s £15 I won’t be spending for sure!
i have my doubts… it might harbor bacteria and all, those chuckable papers are better
Looks odd (and expensive). They should have just brought out some normal blotting sheets!
Yup, it’s quite expensives but it’s Benefit. All of their things are expensive. Nice post 🙂
I like the idea of this …but blotting sheets are way better value!
Such an odd product, I am such an avid user and lover of Benefit products but I’m not sure that I’ll be buying this one!
I really don’t understand why Benefit is so expensive… They look and feel and have contents like brands that are a third of their prices…
