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

      I bought this product over two months ago. I didn't try the sample when I first purchased this product so I didn't use it until I was able to go into ULTA again. This week I stumbled across an amazing Ulta and decided to give the sample a try. When I first applied it on my hand I LOVE IT. It covered ALL fine lines and pores. So after getting home I decided to my bottle and try it on my face. It had the same effects as in my hand. However, it created a white cast effect. Once I applied my NARS foundation on top it wasn't visible. The cast didn't hinder my finished look but it scared me for a minute.

          This is one of the only primers that makes me less oily throughout the day. I have very oily skin so no product works 100% on me but this did such a good job! I have to apply translucent powder less during the day because this primer keeps the oil controlled. I love it.

          Not good for really oil skin

          By Taylor

          from Maine

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

          I have extremely oily skin (after about 2-3 hours my face is already extremely shiny) when I tried this product I bought the large bottle because I thought it would work wonders but unfortunately did nothing more than putting no primer on my face at all. I would not recommend this product if you have really oily skin but if you have less oily skin it might work for you.

            This is the first mattifying primer I've used that has kept my face fairly matte after wearing foundation all day. Although my really oily areas (forehead, chin) got shiny after around 2 hours, the rest of my face oily started to look oily after 6 hours with no touch ups. Absolutely recommend if you have super oily skin!
