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

    I like the smell and that it feels like nothing is on but it claims to be a mattifying gel and makes me super oily! Also breaks my skin out so I don't recommend this product I rather stick to the original works better

                  This is a life changer. I've always had blackheads on my nose and I pretty much gave up on making them go away. I got this as a sample and I literally couldn't believe my eyes. I still noticed my blackheads without makeup on, but once I put on my foundation they were gone!!! This product is amazing!!! Definitely exceeded my expectations!!!

                        This does nothing for me. It just leaves behind a wet and sticky residue and doesn't mattify my skin at all or "diminish pores" as it said. I love the brand Benefit and I've heard good things about this primer, so I thought this must be good. I can't believe I paid around $30 for literally water it might as well be. What a waste. If I could rate this 0 stars I would.

                            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!).
