        Comments about Benefit Cosmetics ""That Gal"":

        The product is pink, has a nice scent, & feels like lotion on the skin. It does brighten my complexion initially but the problem is the effect is lost once I apply the rest of my makeup so I just do not see the point in using a brightening primer. Plus it really didn't help keep my makeup on longer than any other primer would have so it isn't amazing in that aspect either.I will stick to my Smashbox primers. If you want a brightening product I would recommend Benefit's Girl Meets Pearl instead because it can be mixed with foundation/BB cream to brighten the complexion OR can be worn under or over makeup.

              Ok so I got this primer to put on under my foundation. I really like how the product is pink and smells good but since this is called a brightening primer I was expecting it to Add a glow or something to my face. It works like an ordinary primer, keeps my foundation on but does absoluty nothing to brighten my face. For 30 I was expecting wayyy more. It is way to expensive for wat it does

              It left my face a little greasy if I applied a little too much but if you use very little it holds the makeup great!

                This provides a great base, evening out and brightening skin. I have very sensitive skin and am allergic to many products. Haven't found a BB or CC cream to which i don't somehow react but this is great. Smooth as silk and picks up my skin on even the worst days

                  I use once a day in the morning before I put on my make up. It instantly gives me a confidence boost! On the weekend, this is all I use. It gives me a very natural look and it does wonders for me.

                    Comments about Benefit Cosmetics ""That Gal"":

                    A sales girl at Ulta recommended That Gal to me, but she told me to also buy the Porefessional along with it (which I had already tried as a sample a while back and didn't like) and then literally mix the two primers together on my hand before applying to my face. She said it was a trick some trainers at Ulta used....so I went ahead and bought both. Quite spendy if you ask me. After doing as instructed I realized how I didn't absolutely hate the way the primers felt on my face, a total shocker because the Porefessional drove me nuts the last time I tried it........I could definitely still feel that wet but smooth texture of the Porefessional on my face though. Yuck! Its like it just doesn't dry. My makeup wants to slide off because of it - rather than stay put -which is one of the reasons I use a primer in the first place. I decided to just try That Gal on its own and it has totally surprised me!! I am SO picky about my makeup, I spend hours and lots and lots of $ looking for what works. This works for me!! Yay! A rare few words I get to use!! The pink shimmery color is lovely and it brightens without looking oily which is amazing - I almost didn't buy it because I don't need any more shine to my already oily face. In fact this has helped some with oil control. I love how well it blends into my skin. It hides some of my pores, it doesn't leave behind any uncomfortable residue type of feeling, it just melts away while continuing to look fabulous. Easy to wash off, easy to apply. I have medium tan skin thats neutral in tone but I have a lot of red spots, large pores, some acne and acne scarring. This is a perfect base for my CC cream and then for my powder on top of that. I like light coverage that I can't feel but that actually covers and evens out my skin....I can't stand feeling my makeup! That Gal rules :)

                            Hello, I have freckled skin--which I like-- so I don't use fondation, but I LOVE using a matte bronzer and powder over top. I would like to try That Gal to prolong my bronzer. Can I wear this alone with only bronzer? Also I have normal but sometimes dry skin, is That Gal going to hydrate my skin? Thanks in advance!!!

                              You can certainly wear this alone for a natural glow and to extend the wear of your bronzer! It will brighten and even your complexion without covering your freckles.

                              "That Gal" isn't super hydrating, so we'd recommend applying a moisturizer first, especially if your skin is on the drier side!

                            Will this product be okay with sensitive skin? I have eczema and usually tend to stick to fragrance free products. I have a heard a lot of good reviews on it however and wanted to give it a try but just need to make sure it is suitable for very sensitive/dry skin types.

                              This product does contain fragrance, so for extremely sensitive skin, spot test a small amount of product on an inconspicuous area of your skin first to make sure you have no adverse reaction before using as directed. This product contains raspberry & chamomile extracts to soothe skin. For dry skin, gently exfoliate and moisturize skin before application of this product for best results.

                              This product and Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional (Item #: 2219868) can certainly be worn together for a flawless complexion. The order of application would be: "That Gal", blended all over the face, followed by The POREfessional, applied to problem areas, and lastly, your foundation.
