    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 :)

            I really wanted to love this product, but I just couldn't. It didn't seem to do anything to my face at all. It didn't brighten like it claimed to. It just felt like I was putting another moisturizer on top of my moisturizer. I kept trying it. I used it for a week before just giving up on it. Maybe its just my skin type( I have oily skin) that it didn't work with(though, on the bright side it did not make me more oily either). Overall, especially for the price, I am very unimpressed.

            I use this product almost every day. Either by itself with a little bronzer for a more natural summer on the go look. Or as a primer under my makeup. It's really easy to use hut I find that at times it doesn't blend very well and on my tan skin kind of gives a white streaky/washed look.

                    I got this in a sample size in another kit of benefit minis and wasn't really expecting anything from it. One day I pulled it out on a whim and I will never ever go back. It smooths my face, evens my skin tone, and makes me look healthy and flawless. I never saw the point in brightening primers, I figured my full coverage foundation (Estee Lauder Double Wear) would cover it anyway. I couldn't have been more wrong. It adds a healthy natural look to a full coverage foundation without sacrificing the coverage. I would even venture to say that it is better than the Porefessional. Definitely an unsung hero!

                      • 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!

                        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.
