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

    I have very oily skin and this is a godsend! I put it on as a base layer and usually skip primer and just used BB cream with it under my foundation. Seriously though, this stuff makes me a matte goddess all day and my makeup stays a good 10 hrs with it.

          This has to be the best product I have ever used. I have tried several different products and by mid day I feel like my makeup is looking oily and coming off. From the get go this product has been amazing I apply after the moisture and base and my makeup stays and looks natural all day long. Highly recommended.

                    I get REALLY oily after about 2-3 hours after wearing foundation (to the point it looks like it will slide off). I was using the other porefessional and hated it because it almost made me seem oilier! I was hesitate to buy this but I bought the travel size and was not disappointed! I don't have to touch up my foundation at all during the day and its not oily looking at all! I love the texture of this product, its smooth and easy to use!

                        Hi gorgeous!

                        The POREfessional: Matte Rescue is not a moisturizer. It's a lightweight, water-based gel that overpowers shine and absorbs excess surface oil. We recommend applying Matte Rescue after your morning skincare routine (which should include moisturizer!).
