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

          I have oily skin and I love the traditional Porefessional primer so I was hoping to get that in an oil reducing form and this was not it. I have enlarged pores on my cheeks that this did literally nothing for. It may have helped control my oil to a hardly noticeable level, but it did absolutely nothing for my pores hence my disappointment. This may be the product for you if you're slightly oily and don't have enlarged pores. I will say it was lightweight and felt refreshing on my face.

                  Works well for oily skin. Goes on easy, stays pretty smooth under makeup. A little pricy but a little goes a long way so it will last a long time before having to replace it.

                  The first two times I used the product it worked great but then when I went to use it a third time it burnt my skin. My whole fact turned red and I felt a burning sensation for over an hour even after taking it off. I does work really well at mattifying the skin but it over drys.

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

                  My skin has been getting oily again since finishing a course of Accutane, so I thought it was time to start using an oil control gel again. I ordered this with high hopes, but I was more than disappointed ! I applied the product, and about 15 minutes later sat down at my makeup mirror to put my eye makeup on, and my entire face was an oil slick. There was more oil on my face than there is first thing in the morning, 8-9 hours after washing my face. I almost couldn't believe it. I had to wash my face before I could apply any makeup at all.
