The only thing this will do is make you skin look shiny. It does not provide any mattifying properties.
i loved this, the smell, the packaging, the way it made my skin feel it gives you a lovely velvety smooth face! too much however could probably feel a little heavy and oily so you dont need a lot of product. i dont use it all of the time because i worry about it breaking out my sensitive skin but i do really like this product.
I love this product! My roommate started using it after she tried a sample at Sephora and told me about it. Though I don't wear any foundation, my skin tends to get oil throughout the day. But when I wear this product over my moisturizer in the morning, my skin magically stays matte the entire day without an oily t-zone. No product has ever been able to do that for me before so it has been a miracle worker for me.
The only drawback for me is the way that this product is packaged. It's in a tin can with a thick consistency and it comes with one sponge applicator that you're supposed to use to spread it over your face. It's not very clean but otherwise I absolutely love this primer!
This is terrible... It smells nice but that's the only thing it's got going for it.
It does NOTHING. Yes, NOTHING. I have oily skin and it does NOTHING for it at all, it doesn't keep it matte, it doesn't refine my pores at all.
When I apply it, it balls up on my skin and the sponge barely picks up any of it, I have to dig the sponge right in to get any product.
As I walk around, I can smell the nice lemony scent. Apart form that, it was a complete waste of £19.
Completely stupid product. I'm begining to think that BeneFit are a bunch of lying charlatans.
I have had this product for months but have only recently begun to use it. I was confused at the instructions, which suggest it is used over make up, and I found the sponge applicator completely ineffective. The sponge deposited barely any product on my face. However, I recently came back to it and now like the product as a primer. I apply it with my fingers to areas where I have visible pores, and this allows my foundation to be much smoother. I also love the fresh scent of this product. I would be unlikely to buy it again, only because there are more effective and reasonably prices primers avaliable, which is what this product essentially is to me.
I don't know why this doesn't get more love. I think this is the best foundation primer ever. It's not advertised as one, but that is how I've used it. I mostly used it with MMU and it made my skin look flawless. I can't live without this product. Period. For reference I've got fairly normal that tends to get slightly oily.
I tried this product a couple years back. The premise seemed good. I tried it on my nose and t-zone at the Sephora in Las Vegas and it went on beautifully. After a couple of hours though, I got extremely oily. This did not help my already prone to acne skin, so yes, I broke out. I wish this product worked for me but alas, it does not. The smell of the product is great. The container is okay, sometimes hard to open and you really should get rid of that sponge often if you don't want to spread bacteria on your face. If Benefit came out with a product that worked better on oily, acne-prone skin then I would try it once more.
Sadly and unfortunately, I was not blessed with good skin. I have rough, uneven texture skin and I also have HUGE pores=(
Before I tried Benefit's DR. FEELGOOD, I never even knew a primer that would fill in pores existed! So I was thrilled to try it out and I am so glad it did. It doesn't make the pores dissappear but it almost looks flawless and I was SHOCKED by it...not only that but it mattified my face and it felt soooooo soft to the touch. Ready for liquid foundation skin...I'm so impressed. It seems to EVEN out my complexion and makes pores look small!
I have sensitive skin and allergic to Cetaphil, and chemical sunscreens, and all sorts of things. I TRIED MAC'S PREP AND PRIME SPF 50 and I broke out. But Dr. Feelgood is amazing.
I love this product for 'no foundation' days. It leaves the skin feeling wonderfully smooth and irons out pores and tightness. I use it with well- blended YSL touche eclat on my eye bags and the nose-to-mouth lines and it makes me look fresh without a hint of any make up at all. Professionally I have sometimes used this combination on young brides who want a nude look (with a bit of blusher and minimal liner/mascara duo). It is not concealing but acts a little bit like photoshop's "healing brush' tool and blurs imperfections very subtly. Lovely but not for crepy or older skins.Smells fab.
I got this product as a sample from my sister when she was working in a Makeup shop. It is too expensive that I would have bought it myself without being really convinced of the products.
And I have to say, I really wanted to like it. I'm a huge BeneFit Fan, I love their packaging, think they have funny ideas with their products and usually keep their promises. Usually...
I didn't feel this primer did ANYTHING for me. It didn't make my foundation glide on better, it didn't control the oil on my face, just nothing...
It didn't do anything bad neither though and I do like the smell a lot.
I'm not that big on foundation primer yet anyway and this was only the second I tried, so maybe it's me.
But I just couldn't see much of a difference, so why would i use or buy it?
