Prime Parent

Since becoming a parent 9 weeks ago, as expected I have less time to put my face on in a morning and less time or should I say less interest in topping up my make up throughout the day. So this week on the blog in reviewing make up primers! I need something that keeps my make up attatched to my slightly tired skin all day. 
The two products which have come out top of my research is

Benefits Porefessional and Macs Prep and Prime.

Starting with the Mac Prep and Prime which retails for £21.00 for 30ml of product this item claims to be....

An ultra-fluid lotion formulated with special-effect silicones. Calms and soothes the skin, blots away excess oil, and evens out skin redness. Improves the laydown and application of foundation or powder.

Does it do all of the above? Yes! It's keeps away oil and shine reduces the size of pores amazingly, my only criticism is that it seems to be quite drying on the skin but this maybe just my dry combination skin reacting to the product. Either that or the miserable winter weather setting in!

Next up Benefits Porefessional which retails at £24.50 for 22ml.

This product claims to....
Quickly minimise the appearance of pores & fine lines for smoother-than-smooth skin! Apply this silky, lightweight balm alone, under or over makeup. Translucent, oil-free formula complements all skintones and helps makeup stay put. Contains a Vitamin E derivative, known to protect skin from free radicals.

Again this product does everything it claims but I feel it offers a little bit more, where as the Mac Prep is clear silicone the Benefit Porefessional has a nude colour tint to it so it almost could act as a BB cream if you didn't want to wear makeup. 
Although it costs more and get less product I would definitely say this is the product that has kept me looking neat tidy and put together 14 odd hours after applying my make up!
Give them a try or feel free to recommend more for me to try!
Love and Hugs
