    Comments about Benefit Cosmetics ""That Gal"":

    I have lupus & with that comes the red rash across the cheeks & nose. I have bought several things over the last few years to cover the red up & nothing has ever worked. I went into ulta the other day & done a facial at the benefit bar & the lady introduced me to that gal & it was amazing. It completely covered up the red. I bought it right then & there & will continue to buy as long as it is available.

          Love "That Gal"!! This is my go to primer. I use it under a mineral foundation and it does great. I've used this product for almost 8 years now. Just wish they put it in a squeeze tube and price be a little lower. No matter what I'll continue to buy this product

              • Q:

                I'm looking for a primer that will minimize pores, but also extend the wear of my liquid foundation. Which would be better for this, That gal or the porefessional. I've never tried either yet and I don't know which one to go with.

                  Hi gorgeous!

                  We have two primers that would be perfect for you! First, apply stay flawless to freshly moisturized skin. This instant PRO-long primer acts like a magnet to lock on your foundation for 15 fresh & flawless hours. Next, apply the POREfessional to quickly minimize the appearance of pores & fine lines for smoother-than-smooth skin (you can even mix the POREfessional with your liquid foundation and apply together!). You'll love how your makeup looks flawless all day :)

                  You can find both primers here at ULTA:

              • Q:

                I am loving my Benefit skin care, and thanks to your generous sampling program, have purchased the entire line! However, I am hoping to understand the difference between "That Gal", "Watts Up", and "High Beam". They all seem to be brighteners, so what is the difference?

                  Hi gorgeous!

                  So glad to hear that you love our b.right! Radiant Skincare line! We're fond of it ourselves ;)

                  "That gal" is a brightening face primer. The silky pink formula contains light-reflecting pigments to help brighten all skin tones and raspberry & chamomile to soothe skin. Wear "that gal" alone or under makeup for smoother makeup application!

                  Watt's up! is a soft focus highlighter. The cream-to-powder finish and delicate champagne glow are ideal for soft focus highlighting. Watt's up! can be applied solo or over existing makeup.

                  High beam is a luminescent complexion enhancer. The satiny pink liquid formula accents cheek & brow bones for a dewy, radiant glow! Use high beam as a spot highlighter over makeup or wear under complexion products for subtle luminescence.

                  xoxo, B

              • Q:

                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!!!

                  A:

                  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!

              • Q:

                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.

                  A:

                  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.
