              The container is deceptively large. There is very little actual primer so you will run out very quickly. I find this with a lot of Benefit cosmetics. I was happy with how it worked but it was empty in about a month. I'm not going to pay $25 - $30 a month for primer.

                I have found with using this product, it isn't always necessary to wear foundation. A little of this product and nice bronzer/blush and I'm good to go with a natural look.

                  I love to use this everyday to brighten my face before I put on foundation. It feels like ice cream for my skin its soft and fluffy and refreshing and I notice a lot of brightening and creamy texture, adds a dewy glow.

                        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!

                                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.
