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

I bought this primer because my T-Zone was oily recently. I was so hyped for this product!! I used it once, and my skin was matte. After three times of using this product, breakouts appeared on my forehead. Very disappointed with this product.

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

      I had high hopes for this product since I love the regular benefit porefessionals primer. This just went on super sticky and didn't dry right and then it didn't even fill in my pores like the original. Also I have oily combination skin and i feel like this product wasn't matte at all and it felt like it actually made me more oily than without it.

              I have oily skin.
              This stuff keeps the oils at bay ALL DAY and when I say all day I mean all day.
              It's usually 13 hours before I can get my makeup off and I'm not an ounce shiny

                This product was not good for my combination skin and did not provide the mattefying effect that it claims. Very disappointed. I tried to make this work for about a month and my T-zone was oily even after an hour of application.

                    This product is AMAZING. I got it because I have ridiculously oily skin and usually my makeup won't even stay on throughout the day without blotching. This makes my face more matte and helps keep my pores looking invisible. I definitely recommend.
