I don't seem to get on very well with Benefit products and this one was no exception.I have oily skin and I was advised that this would be great for me.I don't like anything about it and it was a complete waste of money. Using a sponge applicator you put this over your face. It feels like a horrible greasy layer and it did nothing that it promised. I don't think that my skin could breath under it and I got spots the same day. It felt horrible on my skin and kind of dirty. I couldn't wait to take it off. I would never buy it again and I won't use the one I have again. I really wouldn't recommend this to anyone.

Oh boy, it's called Dr Feelgood but it makes me feel the complete opposite. I went to the Benefit counter asking for a powder to keep my skin matte throughout the day, and the lady recommended I try this balm, I blame myself since I was in a hurry I picked it up.Firstly, it claims that you can use it before or after makeup. So I tried it before makeup, after moisturizing my skin I applied this to my face. Note that you have to press this onto your face very hard so it fills in the pores and attaches to your face, if you try to blend it or any other method, it balls up and gets very flaky! It made my face a bit matte and a tiny bit smooth but that was it, it doesn't control oil very well though.Trying it on top of makeup to try and keep the oil and shine at bay throughout the day makes it look like a complete disaster. Every application I try, whether it's blotting, dabbing, smearing, it always leaves specks and flakes of the product and it gathers at the sides of my nose making it look VERY unpleasant! I've tried so many times to make this product work for me because there is a lot of product in the pot and it was quite pricey but I just can't do it. Also, the way it's packaged is strange. If you use it on top of makeup and press it back into the product, it transfers and stains your balm which makes it very unhygienic and can break you out with the bacteria that has gathered between the sponge and the balm.Also, it smells like a cleaner with a very strong unpleasant citrus scent. I'm sorry but even after multiple tries I just cannot make this balm work, it sits at the bottom of my makeup stash untouched, maybe I've missed something?

So, I actually got this product to work on my skin. It didn't ball up or anything, it actually applied smoothly on the back of my hand when I was trying it out in store, so I bought it! I got home and was so excited to apply this on my face, so I applied a nice layer all over. My skin felt so soft and amazing during the day. I wore it alone without any other makeup on my face. I do have oily skin so at the end of the day it started feeling weird and I was ready to remove it. Later that night, I washed my face with my natural gel cleanser. I felt my face after I patted it dry and felt that the Dr. Feel good product was still on my skin and my cleanser hadn't removed it at all. So, I took some makeup remover and rubbed it all over my face with a thin cotten pad. I was feeling my face and that had not removed it either. I didn't want to irritate my skin with another wash, so I just went to bed. The next morning, I washed my face, and after I patted my face dry, the product still hadn't washed off. I started getting really worried because I have very oily, cystic acne prone skin and I breakout very easily. I used makeup remover AGAIN but that still dodnt remove it. Remnants of this product have been on my face for three days. I just cannot remove it fully with the natural products that I own. I will never be applying this to my face ever again.

Not a big fan. It really doesn't play nice with sunscreen (literal white streaks across my face). It does fill pores so that's nice.

Yuck, did not like this stuff one bit. Gave it to my Mom after one use. I used this as a primer before applying any makeup and it made my skin feel like I had rubbed a layer of car grease over it, I could feel my oiliness immediately and my skin felt uncomfortable. I do have oily skin though, so that may be why this did not work for me. The smell was nice and I did like the packaging.
