              I got this as a sample and after putting it through the ringer by being out in the hot 90 degree weather yesterday, all I have to say is I'm ordering the full size of this right now! I'm an oily girl and I didn't see a speck of shine on my face for 10 hours after apply this under my makeup. Color me impressed Benefit, you may have just turned me against my favorite Nyx Honey Dew Me Up primer.

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

                Originally I hated this product because I was using it as a mattifying primer under my foundation and it was a no go from the get go. My foundation slid right of my face and I have VERY oily skin. But, when I started using this product first, and then using an actual face primer (I use the original POREfessional) it started working out for me. This product definitely isn't meant to be used alone as a primer under foundation but once I figured out how to use it, it did a great job of keeping my skin from getting too shiny even when I used a more dewey foundation on top.

                    I have always had extremely oily skin in my T zone. For 20+ years I have tried everything I heard of and still struggled with the embarrassing oily look. Although this does not keep me completely non oily, it does work amazingly all day long. I am now minimally oily at the end of the day which I never thought I would experience.
