              This makes me feel more oily versus matte. Often my foundation flakes when I wear this underneath. I'll finish the product, but won't buy again.

                I am already a huge fan of Benefit Cosmetics and love it even more! I use Benefit Porefessional face primer daily. Add a little of this under your primer and you stay matte all day. I'm running around at work all day even if I sweat and blot it away I still have that wonderful matte finish as if I just applied my makeup.

                Didn't like, peeled off when you put your make up on top. Maybe I didn't let it dry long enough. Will keep trying. Fine when worn alone

                    • 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?
