Benefit Cosmetics Dr Feel Good
I've rediscovered an oldie but definitely a goodie - Benefit Cosmetics' Dr Feel Good! When I first started really getting into make up and finding out about the wonders a primer could do for one's complexion, Dr Feel Good (one of Benefit's top sellers) was the first face primer I dabbled in. Since then, I've repurchased this at least 3 times over the years. But being a beauty junkie, I've strayed away from it for several years now for the sake of trying other primers... but recently I decided to repurchase it and I've been using it ever since! On my first use/rediscovery, I asked myself "Girrrrl, why did you ever stop using this?!"
It's a lightweight invisible balm, containing vitamins A, C and E, that can be use before or after makeup and even on its own to help mattify the skin. I generally use this before makeup as a primer with the sponge that it comes with (the only time I ever use the applicator that comes with Benefit products... I never use the brush that comes with their blushes!).
I find that it gives the appearance of velvety smooth and flawless skin since it fills in any enlarged pores, pock mark/acne scaring, and smooths fine lines - a perfect canvas for foundation and the rest of the makeup. I have yet to use it over makeup just because I don't tend to carry it around with me but I'm pretty sure it would do a great job at mattifying the skin throughout the day. One thing I would point out is to make sure your skin is well moisturized before using the primer because I find that it does tend to make my occasional dry patches more prominent (but I mostly have oily combination skin).
This is definitely Holy Grail status for me! I personally feel that it beats a lot of the face primers I've tried in my years (and I've tried a lot), in terms of giving the skin a smooth finish, mattifying the skin and helping the makeup stay in place and last a good 12 hours or more! I'm definitely going to be repurchasing this from now on and making sure I don't stray away from it again! I also reuse the beautiful tin as a container for little elastic hair ties, bobby pins, stud earrings, rings, the options are endless! Simply put, Dr Feel Good will definitely make you "feel gooooooood" (har har...)!
