Benefit That Gal

This primer is good for more than just keeping our foundation going strong. Loaded with light-reflecting pigments, the dual-purpose formula creates a luminous base layer that can be worn alone or under makeup. We like to reapply it throughout the day to crank up the skin-brightening effect.

Not daily for me

I'll use this when I do a full face of makeup for the day, but otherwise I just don't use it a lot. It is comfortable on and doesn't cake up with other products.

Brightening

This was the first primer that I have ever used and I loved it!! It was brightening and it removed the redness that I had on my skin. However, I realized that if you put too much, it can be a tad bit oily.

Too Pink

Personally, I don't use compact or concealer because my skin is pretty clear. So I put on this product on my face using a standard moisturizer first, then the product. Once on, my skin it felt extra soft (felt extra moisturized) but it was too pink for my face. If you're going to use this, I recommended it for just highlighting one's cheeks.

A smooth and soothing primer
Purchased

I'm usually on the fence about the necessity and effectiveness of primer, but after some time away from using That Gal I've added it back to my daily routine. Benefit's formula is soothing--almost cooling!--on the skin, and creates a great palette for your day's makeup.

Amazing but small amount

I loved benefit and this was also an amazing product I have used. I felt that the amount was a little less or maybe I was using a little too much on my face? But overall it's a good product.

Great for minimal makeup days
Purchased

I never got a sample from Birchbox but I had a small tube from years ago. Benefit makes some great cosmetics and this is a great one. I love wearing it when I only want to through some blush and lipstick on and go out, really helps for a natural look.

Nice brightening primer that does the job
Purchased

This primer has a lovely creamy berry scent that is very pleasant and isn't overpowering at all. It's a pleasure to apply! I use it to brighten up under my eyes before applying make up. I wouldn't say it's life-changing stuff, but it's nice to have.

Not for oily skin

I like this as a basic primer but considering I have a ridiculously shiny face I can't use this. Good for a few hours though

Bright Complexion

I love this stuff! It gives me a "glow" that lasts all day and shows up in pictures. It's a little thick to apply, but I really do enjoy using it.

pretty good
Purchased

I like this product because it does give you a nice dewy look, but if you put too much makeup on with it can feel kind of heavy and greasy. It doesnt go on as smooth as my clinque primer that I was replacing. I got this product because of the great reviews. I like this as a product to use for a nice glow, not so much for a daily primer which is what I was looking for.
