This pproduct actually works for me.. well to an extent. I tried it as a primer and also over my makeup. I don't think it keeps my makeup on any better than it already is, but it really does help mattify my skin and make my pores less noticible. It's pretty expensive though, but the tin'll last you a long time. I don't think it fills in wrinkles or anything, but it does mattify quite well, which is what I need it to do.
I've read alot of the se reviews and I feel that the best way to summerize the feeling of this product on your skin and the overall "concept" of it is : creepy. It's a creepy product. Ask them what it is for. Go ahead. Ask them. More than one and you'll see the trend. "Oh it's a mattefier" one girl says "Oh it's a moisture lock primer" says another, "Oh it makes your pores dissapear" says one "It's a wrinkle filler upper" says another. Whats the trend? What's that, that you don't know what it is? No. No, the trend is that they, the Benefit chicks who sell the stuff don't even know what it is. Some say you put it on before your foundation, others say after. Y'know what it is? It's damn Vicks vapo rub with corn starch in it. It's good old shin grease. Save 30 bucks a whip up a tub of your own and maybe then you wont feel so bad about putting something useless on your face.
I don't know why I always fall for Benefit...I think this may possibly be the most useless product I've ever bought and I'm calling it "Product" because I don't actually know what it is! It's not a makeup primer because the package says to wear it alone or over makeup...but if you wear it over it's so thick that when you try to apply it all it does is wipe off your freshly applied makeup...hmmmm totally lost on me. Another product in the back of my cabinet...cute packaging though!
This is a skin-clogger. It is also very flaky on the skin. It is only suitable for those with no skin issues. But then what is the product good for?
it did not suit to my face. it made me have pimple on my face.
The packaging is terrible, but that really didn't bother me too much. The product itself went on smoothly and to a limited extent controlled the shine on my T-zone. It made little to no difference on the appearance of my skin. Smelled yummy though. Way overpriced. Yet another winner from Benefit!
Got this as a gift. It's unimpressive. Definately not worth the money.
So I gave it to friend who was dying to try it. She hates it too.
Says it feels creepy on.
I realized that the previous product review I wrote would be helpful to no one because of the information I left out. I should have included that I apply this product only to the part of my nose that gets shiny. I also only dab on the tiniest amount. As far as the sponge, which can get gross over the long haul, I just throw it away. Maybe differences in usage styles have something to do with the wide range of ratings.
For me this product works wonders in mattefying my shiny nose! The trick is just to use a tiny, tiny bit. I just touch the surface of the product with my finger and apply it to my nose. That way, no melt, no mess.
I received this in a swap, almost brand new - I had been dying to try it. First of all, it took me a week to wrangle the lid off -- that thing was ON there. Second of all, the included sponge was big and awkward and floppy. Thirdly, the product itself was so dry and crumbly -- reminded me of shoe wax. Seriously. I also hated the smell. I ended up throwing this away, it was so dreadful.
