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

I really do not want to rate this product without trying it a few more times.. But I did do a first impressions and I found: Compared to my current primer: This is a lot stickier than the typical primers I have tried. It does feel sticky on the skin, and I would think that makeup would stick to that better but I have heard mixed reviews.
I did not notice anything horrible with my makeup, or my skin looking extra beautiful or matte. I do prefer the feel of my old primer, but I will continue to use this and update my review as I become more accustom. :]

            I have oily skin and this was recommended to use under Benefit's Porefessional to tame the oiliness. However, one application and my skin became so dry it looked like a cracked desert. I can't imagine anyone that can successfully use this. I will be returning it.

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

              I have a dry to normal skin type right now and this stuff is great! It minimizes my pores while creating a smooth base to apply my foundation. I put lotion on my face first and let it sink in before applying the primer to ensure it's mattifying properties do not over dry my skin. I highly recommend it for all skin types including sensitive skin as my skin is sensitive and it does not irritate my skin at all.

                      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?
