Birchbox Breakdown

“Let it shine” is a great motto—except when it applies to your skin. For those who prefer a matte look, there’s this oil-absorbing balm from Benefit Cosmetics. Completely sheer and surprisingly weightless, the formula soaks up excess grease throughout the day—without mussing up your makeup. Bonus: It works as a silky primer too.

How to Use

Gently blot your face with the formula using the accompanying sponge. Wear alone or under makeup. For touch-ups, apply over makeup throughout the day.

Amazing product
Purchased

After reading the description of this product it was not exactly what I expected when it came in the mail. But after using it I'm hooked. During the day, especially a hot summer day, my t-zone becomes oily/shiny, I was using blotting papers to try to help but this has eliminated the need for anything else!

Literally, I rarely leave home without it.

I live in New Orleans. It's hot and wet about 80% of the time, and when it's not hot and wet, it's cooler and wet.
Key word: wet.
We're always humid, which is great for looking younger than we are, but it also means as someone with combination/35 year old/somewhat acne-prone skin that the majority of the time my face shines like I just rubbed it down with olive oil.
I think I got Dr. Feelgood in a sample kit or with a gift card or something about 7 or 8 years ago, and it was a revelation It's my safety measure for ensuring I don't look a mess in the galleries on White Linen Night in August, when it's roughly 90 degrees outside at night with 80% + humidity.
I put on this silky balm when I'm going out, and if I don't follow it with makeup, my skin looks naturally fabulous and smooth, and keeps the greasy/sweaty/shiny away. If I do wear makeup, (I put Dr. Feelgood on before applying makeup), it stays in place so I don't have a liquid eyeliner semicircle under my eyebrow or smeary smudgy wings on my temples from simultaneously wiping moisture & liner off of my face.
So I now have a tiny one I keep in my purse, another tiny one I keep in my overnight/carryon luggage in case I forget, a large on I keep in my desk drawer at work, and another large one I keep on my vanity at home for regular use.
And PS, my skin uses any excuse it can find to make the zits, and Dr. Feelgood doesn't make me break out.
Plus, it reminds me of the Motley Crue song, and that's kind fun.

Miracle Worker
Purchased

I'm a native Floridian who moved up north, thought my skin became wonderful by itself, and have recently returned to the sunshine state and realized that my skin was just as oily as it always was - the only thing that has changed was how the humidity effected it. I have tried everything to combat my oily skin and this is the only thing that will do the trick.
I won't leave home without it!

This does not smell nearly as nice as the other Benefit products. It works okay as a mattifier over makeup but I feel like it smudges my makeup a smidge.

Great Product - Pricey
Purchased

This is a great product that gives an overall polished look to my everyday makeup routine, and it makes me feel cleaner. It keeps makeup from melting even in heat. It is a little expensive for the size, but it is an excellent primer.

Nostalgia and nice product for sensitive skin
Purchased

I've been using Dr. Feel Good since I was 14. That's nearly 14 years now!

Maybe it's nostalgia..but I really think it's more than that. My skin is incredibly, surprisingly reactive, red, and sensitive. Dr. Feel Good has zero reaction on my skin. It smells nice. It looks nice. It feels nice. It really is a wonderful product. Give it a try. It matte-fies without goopy product. I can almost never wear makeup because I hate the way it looks. But with this, you may not even need make up.

It's amazing
Purchased

My skin recently has been getting very oily and this stuff works amazingly. I felt like my makeup lasted twice as long on top of what it already does

Does the job
Purchased

This product definitely controls oil on my forehead but my chin must be super sensitive because it broke out horribly after applying it. It smells nice and is silky soft feeling on the rest of my face. I don't think it's a must have but I don't feel like it was a waste of money either.
