Poor old Dr Feelgood ......... I must show my support as this product solved one of my makeup problems - namely, foundation that went patchy after a few hours on my combo skin.
Enter the Doc , and by ignoring the advice and applying it lightly BEFORE my foundation, it worked wonders , keeping my base looking fresher and more evn all day.
It is a great product for me, and I will soon be buying another tin, this one has lasted me about 9 months so far , making it very affordable.
Hurrah for Benefit !
I want to just add my few and nasty thoughts on this useless aged vaseline in a tin. Oh how the freakin Benefit packaging team dragged me in and made a fool of me again. I have spent a few years trying to figure out this product. I have not found a single practical use for it and absolutely have to agree with other reviews that said the salespeople were stymied by how to explain its use. I have NEVER gotten a satisfactory answer...because THERE SIMPLY IS NONE. What a waste. I feel so humiliated every time I gaze at the cute piece of expensive nonsense. It needs to go away and stop taunting me.
This product is great. A good primer or post makeup when you need a touch-up. It has many uses. The important thing is not to rub it in but to blot it on. A little pat w/ the sponge and you have a velvety smooth texture. Plus, as with all BeneFit products, very cute packaging.
This is a good primer, but nothing overtly special. The packaging and tagline are cute, like most of Benefit's other products. However, my main complaint with this primer is the difficulty in getting from the compact to your face. A sponge seemed a little too odd, but it isn't a liquid, so you can't squeeze it out and apply. But, since it is in a compact, it goes on a tad lighter than most primers, which is a bonus for me and my easily clogged pores. I would break this out for special occasions when I really want my face/foundation to be the center of attention, but I discovered that after a few days of regular use, I did have some clogged pores. Oh we,, I suppose primers really just aren't for me.
I got this as a gwp from Sephora, and I'm very glad I didn't shell out the cash for the full-size. This is supposed to be a mattifying balm, but for me it failed to live up to that claim. If anything, it made my skin get oily sooner! The product itself seems a tad bit greasy, so that might have contributed to the oiliness factor as well. I would suggest trying this first before commiting to a regular size tin - I think you'll be glad you did!!!
I really didn't like this stuff. It made my skin feel smooth, but then after a little while my face was really dry and flaky! And I have oily non-sensitive skin. After the initial dry up, my face would go into oil overdrive and it was nasty. My makeup (liquid) slid right off this stuff, or caked (mineral) in nice little streaks. I tried it under and then over my makeup (which grossed up the sponge, how unsanitary!). Nothing. No reduction in pore size, my teeny tiny eye wrinkles, or shine. For a primer you're much better off getting Smashbox or Philosophy's primers.
OMG!!! I love this product, am on my 3rd batch of the stuff!!!
I use it everyday, even if I am not wearing foundation and it really smoothes my skin and takes away the shine.
I agree with anotehr review - mine DOES NOT smell funny!!! In fact I have it in front of me now and I would call it odourless!
The price is fairly high but well worth it. In my experience I have found that the sponge needs replacing but you can get them v.cheaply.
I guess I'm odd man out here- but I love this stuff! At first I wasn't using enough of this stuff so I didn't get any benefit at all- and then I started really putting it on and what a difference! It really made my skin velvety and soft, and my skin does not get oily throughout the day, and I have moderately oily skin. I LOVE this stuff and I will definitely repurchase. The scent did not bother me that much. It's not the greatest scent in the world but it goes away quickly for me and it's totally worth it to be oil free all day. Love it!
I despise this product. I did smell it before I bought it, but figured there are lots of products that don't smell good but still work well and vice versa. Unfortunately the funky smell does not fade after application, it stays with you all day. Blech. It burned and broke me out badly at the same time. It did not seem to ease the application of any makeup, control oil or lessen the appearance of pores. I bought it from Sephora -not Ebay!- so the stinky scent and overall uselessness of Dr. Feelgood can probably not be excused as tainted product issues. Totally agree with kjetil_frost, this product is downright creepy.
I think may people gave this a bad name here because they bought it from Ebay. The product i have doesn't smell at all, the reason that it may smell is purely because it's out of date or fake - hence the cheap price.
I would definitely recommend this, it settles foundation/powder and gives a vevelty finish!
