    Comments about Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional: Matte Rescue Invisible-Finish Mattifying Gel Mini:

    I like to say I'm extremely oily. I bought this thinking it would be an amazing product for me and sadly it wasn't. Also I've never seen a blue primer so I wasn't expecting that.

        I applied this everytime before I would start my makeup. Smells great and really works. I was skeptical at first because throughout the day I get super shiny and I wanted a product that would help. THIS IS WORTH IT.

          My pores aren't even that large but I'm just getting into makeup and wanted to start with a high end primer. I notice no difference at all. I mean it feels good to put on and I guess its a good base for my foundation, but after putting it on I dont feel as though my face has been mattefied, or that my pores are less noticeable. Smashbox or even ELF seem to work better. Btw I have oily skin but I only use on a freshly washed and moisturized face.

            Comments about Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional: Matte Rescue Invisible-Finish Mattifying Gel Mini:

            I like the regular POREfessional primer. It does well around my eyes so I thought I would give the gel a chance. However, after drying and when I try to apply my concealer and the gel peels off and makes it look like I have dry skin around my eyes. I plan to return the product and get the regular kind. I was very disappointed.

              I have used this product a couple of times and it just didn't work for me at all. In fact, I couldn't tell that I had even put anything on my skin at all as the day went on. It didn't control shine for me. I wouldn't buy this again.
