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

                This product went in very easily but it did not "immediately" combat oiliness as it claims. Not more than an hour after applying, you could not even tell I had put anything on at all. I returned the product.

                    • Q:

                      The instructions state to apply over freshly cleansed face. My face is oily and pores are large and the sales person suggested this product. Should I still apply my moisturizer (Cervae) and if so before I apply the porefessional or after or not at all?
