Excellent product, loved it!
So smooth and soft!
This balm, used alone, under, or over make up (yeah, you can do that) is fabulous. It mattes your skin but with vitamins and other good for skin stuff. And the light, citrusy smell is great.
This thing confuses me so much. First of all, it SO EASILY peels off if I already have anything on my face. Basically if I have to use this, I need to put on moisturizer, wait for five minutes, carefully put this on, wait for a couple more minutes, put on foundation. Second of all, I don't understand how this can be used over make-up? It's very hard to blend with skin and I have to rub really hard to get it on my face. BUT it does make my face look really matte the minute they are on - except that it doesn't really do much in controlling shine for more than a few hours.
Nice way to delete skin shine
An easy product to eliminate skin shine in a quick and efficient way!
This product makes my skin feel like velvet! I used the included pad to apply it, but had to make several swipes in the dish. I don't feel like this product will last very long based on just a few uses. I didn't see a difference in my skin at all after applying, but it does make your skin feel soft! Great size that you can toss in your bag & not have to worry about leaking since it's not a liquid. Not sure if I would re-purchase at this point.
good primer, just not amazing
I got this primer as the weather is getting warmer and I'll be wanting products to help control oil and shine. After scoping out the website and talking to an employee at Sephora, I got this primer. It is very easy to apply by putting product onto the sponge and dabbing on and around the T-zone. The smell is nice but not annoyingly overpowering, and it definitely makes my foundation go on smoother. My three main dislikes (even though they aren't strong at all but...) are that it doesn't even control oil until my lunch break, it is very easy for little lint particles to get stuck in the product and sponge applicator, and you do have to clean the sponge applicator like any other makeup brush. For a primer, I'd just rather apply with the fingers. Regardless, I'll finish this product and enjoy it…just probably not purchase it again!
It feels like silk
This is the best primer I have ever used! It both feels and looks perfect when I apply it either alone (mostly) or underneath foundation. I am addicted!
SOFT GLOWING SKIN
My skin really appreciates this product - it feels and looks soft, smooth, supple and healthy. When I wear this product, it will be on its own or underneath foundation - either way it gives me confidence that I have a flawless and soft look. Put simply - I feel like I have baby skin again. This product smells good, feels good and looks even better - definitely keep this one stocked!
Fast way to look just a little better
I also bought the travel size to try this. I must have just the right shade complexion, using the enclosed sponge was easy to apply just the right amount of product without it showing. The first time I used it just on fine lines to reduce their appearance. So far so good. Then I found it minimized the appearance of the little bags under my eyes. Then I found if I used it on my eyelids before I applied shadow, my eyes looks considerably younger. Very happy with this product.
This is great for oily T zones
I decided to purchase the little mini version of this to see if i liked it before buying a full size because i wasn't really sure what it would do for me. I just use this for touch ups throughout the day to control oil and any shine i may get in my T zone. Do not wipe on the face as it will shift your foundation so just do really light dabs. Its like magic watching the oil just disappear! I love 'Dr Feelgood' and will definatley be buying the full size .
I can't live without Dr. Feelgood - it minimizes small lines, creates a matte finish that lasts for hours, and doesn't cause any breakouts.
I use this everyday of my whole entire life. I have really oily skin and controls it throughout the day. Its so easy to put on when you don't want to wear any makeup because its clear and looks like you're not wearing any. You can put it on without a mirror, in the car, on the train, in the office, wherever because you can't mess up, your face looks the same as it did before you put it on. I wear this to school everyday because I don't want to actually do my makeup, I just want to control the shine and make my skin not oily.
This product feels great on my skin and keeps it matte. The pleasant light citrusy smell is an added bonus. It's a nice quick fix with or without powder.
Learning to love it, little by little...
I was at sixes and sevens with this product at first, I admit. I liked the box; the smell surprised me, I didn't believe a product for the face could have such a smell but I didn't dislike it in the least, but I kept on postponing its purchase, as if I wasn't utterly convinced of its properties. I finally bought it, but it disappointed me. I used on top of my foundation and powder and it rubbed a lot of it off, so I eventually removed what was left of it and began again, but without Dr. Feelgood. In the days that followed I tried different combinations with it, this time applying it under my foundation, but the final result disappointed me as well, because I found the result to be muddy, as if it hadn't been correctly blended all over your face. One day, one girl at the local department store applied Dr. Feelgood on me first, then That Gal (with some concealer on) and then some Hello Flawless powder) and it looked ok, but I didn't give it another try. I said to myself that I was being hasty, that perhaps I should give it that try. Well, one day, beginning my Easter holidays, I began watching your "how-to" videos, and I don't think I can't thank you enough for the Dr. Feelgood one, because it was the one that had me give Dr. Feelgood the go it deserves. I made some mistakes, though, but mistakes are necessary, because they help you learn and advance. I began applying Dr. Feelgood over one of the playsticks, and I did it by patting it with the sponge, which is how I think Dr. Feelgood MUST be applied. So far, so good. It rubbed off a little bit of the playstick, but not half as much as it would have had I done it the way I used to (sweeping all over the face with it, which isn't a bad idea if you're applying it directly on your skin and you're not wearing any foundation at all). My mistake was applying powder afterwards, the makeup looked flaky. Then, I wanted to know how Dr. Feelgood performed with HFOW and SKAG (I already knew that it performed quite alright with the playsticks, the only thing NOT to do was to add powder). I used HFOW alone and HFOW with Fine One One with Dr. Feelgood on top of both combinations, and the results satisfied me. My face looked matte but neither muddy or flakey. And neither did my face look muddy or flaky when using SKAG alone and SKAG with Cha Cha Tint on my cheeks. And I intend to keep on investigating what other possible combinations it could have. To wrap it all up, I think I'm getting the hang of this, I believe it is a very good product, something you can wear both solo and in company of foundation; if you wear it with foundation, it can go under or over it. You can carry it in your bag in case you want to sneak to the bathroom (if you're not at home) for a touchup. The fact that I can't use it with both HFOW and Hello Flawless powder without it looking muddy and flaky irks me; but, on the other hand, using Dr. Feelgood with either one, preferably the former, is another alternative when I'm pressed for time from monday to friday and want to make it to my work on time. The sponge must be kept clean for Dr. Feelgood to be efficient (as happens with most tools). I like the smell a lot and the box is quite cute. In fact, once I run out of the product, I may find another use for the box.
I like it.
I like it but it's not my favorite. It didn't cover all the shiny areas on my face. But it's very smooth and I personally really like the smell. Good but not the best.
I love this stuff!
I recently underwent chemotherapy, I looked terrible and my skin was a mess. I purchased this product in the hope that it might protect my skin and blur some of the chemotherapeutic nastiness. It did both and smelled great into the bargain. It felt so good it actually made me smile as I put it on! It also provides a good foundation for powders, blushes and contouring, they really stay put. I don't use the sponge, just my fingers, it keeps it clean and if I wash my hands with a medicated soap before applying it I didn't need to worry about infections, which can cause life- threatening complications if you're on chemotherapy. So kudos to you!
Why fix what isn't broken?
I've been using Dr. Feel Good since 2005, although back then it was only about £14.00 GBP! So my complain is, that it's a tad costly these days. But saying that, I've never had an issue. I'm a brit, that moved to cyprus. When I came home to visit family, I popped into boots and was after a make up product that would help maintain my make-up, whilst in a hot country and hey presto, Dr Feel good was just the prescription that was needed! The art to getting this right is a facial cleansing routine. exfoliate, moisturize, then leave your skin to soak that up for about 20 mins, THEN apply Dr feel good onto your face. This way my make up stays put. You can wear it on it's own, although it can sometimes leave a mat look to your face but with a good facial routine, with this added with a damp sponge, it will work it's magic all night long!
Not worth it
It didn't do it's job, it didn't cover up shine well with make up or with out and was pasty, the smell was too strong for my liking, and I usually love the smell of these products
i love this product!!!
I usually am not a big make up person but this product is amazing! I noticed that it made my face look fresh and less tired. It looks great worn alone and it's also a great base for the get even powder.
Didn't live up to expectations
My T-zone was still shiny after i had applied this. Plus, it broke me out. I threw it out after i had stopped using it, after 3 attempts to make it work.
Apply it every morning!
I would like to first start off by saying that I HATE applying makeup every day because it's annoying and I like to look natural. I asked for Dr.FeelGood for Christmas because I thought it was some magic cover up that made my skin smooth and perfect without any foundation. Boy was I wrong. When I finally received my Christmas gift and did some further research, I saw that it was simply to help your pores disappear. I don't have issues with my pores so I was a bit disappointed and wanted to return it. Before I returned it I thought that I might give it a try, OMG I AM GLAD I DID! This product is amazing! Even if you don't have big giant pores. I USUALLY have to apply a pound of Bare Minerals foundation to get the coverage I want, but with Dr.FeelGood I get a put the bare minimum of foundation. It's amazing because I get to apply my makeup so quickly since it settles on my skin so nicely and smoothly. It gives my skin such a nice flawless glow. My husband (who hates makeup) actually likes the way it looks! I know the description say you can apply it over your make up, but I wouldn't unless I was planning on re-apply foundation simply because Dr.FeelGood removes your make up when reapplying. Also, I would not wear it by itself. If you have perfect skin and would just like a little something on your face, then OK. But, if you actually want some coverage, this product will def not do by itself! To sum it all up, I LOVE it and it smells lovely.
I was so bummed!
I LOVE Benefit cosmetics--every other product I've purchased has been AMAZING! I have oily, acne prone skin, but a very busy lifestyle, so I was looking for something to work as a mattifying BB cream, to lessen my makeup application time each day. Unfortunately, after about a week, I broke out on the T zone portion of my cheeks, which tends to be the oiliest. This is not an area where I typically break out, so I had to attribute it to this product. It felt great on, and I loved how it worked, but I had to return it, since it made me break out.
I can't really make up my mind about this one. The tin is super cute and it smells nice when you open it. You use the sponge to apply it on your face and it looks very smooth as promised on the package but then it also suggest to use this over your foundation. I wouldn't suggest that. It mostly removes the foundation which is super annoying. Wearing it alone works fine. They should REALLY do something about the sponge. I clean it after using it but it still gets super gross. I refuse to use that more than twice. You have to buy extras at the store.
LOVE IT!!! no more oil on my face^^
really good, especially for those oil skin, no more oil!!
dry and muddy
I bought it coz so many people says it is good. But I don't feel that way. The smell is nice when I first open the lid and the smell would be gone after sometime. The big problem is it really dried my skin badly. Besides, the product gets dry itself after sometime and is really difficult to apply on the face. It touches like dry mud.
Good - strong smell though
To be honest, the only reason I don't wear this anymore is because of the scent. My boyfriend thought the patchouli was too much. But, it does work really well. It mattifies and smooths. And I love the way my skin felt when I used it. It lasted a long time, both in terms of wearing it and how long the product itself lasted in the container. My skin felt and looked so smooth! I had a lot of trouble with acne and redness when I was a teenager and that's why the Benefit ladies recommended this product to me at the time, and I'm happy to report it never made me break out. So, if you can handle or rather like the scent, go for it, you will love it!
Having more good skin days thanks to Total Moisture, I'm wearing this instead of foundation to just smooth and protect my skin. When I got this product, it honestly wasn't what I expected. I didn't think it would actually be a balm per se. Nonetheless it is definitely a favourite of mine now. It prevents my skin from slight oiliness/flakiness occurring mid way through the day. I put on a light coat with the sponge after my moisturiser - that's it. Velvety complexion achieved!
Great Pore Filler!!
I am addicted to this product and it has changed my life as superficial as that sounds. I have huge pores and this product fills and smooths better than any pore filler. I scrape a bit off with my nail and rub it in. I truly hope Benefit never stops making this product. I think I'll cry if they do.
it was "eh."
At first this product was working great but as time passed it would feel cakey and flakey on my face and the sponge got all dirty and gross as well as the primer itself. maybe i didn't take good care of it or maybe i didn't use the product correctly (i would pad it under my make-up instead of on top) but i don't know if i would buy this again.
Really makes your skin feel great
This is one of my first Benefit addictions so many years ago. I don't use it daily any more, as I've started using other Benefit products as a base for my makeup, but I do still love it. When I originally began using it, I applied it to my clean face, then applied my foundation, then powder, and so on. My routine is now to use Benefit's toner, then That Gal, then You Rebel/Hello Flawless Oxygen/Some Kinda Gorgeous (whatever I feel like that day), and so on. That having been said, I still use Dr. Feelgood on days where I don't wear a full face of make up, or I'm in a hurry. I'll just swipe on just Dr. F (or maybe I'll add a smudge of You Rebel after), a little mascara, and some Benetint and I'm out the door. It makes my skin feel soft and refreshed every time I use it, and it's mattifying powers are rivaled by few. It also has a really pleasant smell that I can't really place (maybe tea tree?). My only complaint with the product would be the packaging. I love things in tins, but it just doesn't really work with this. You need to either leave the sponge applicator out of the tin, or you need to leave the little vellum (I think it is?) insert between the two. Since I lose things, leaving the vellum between the two worked best for me, but the divider is SO frustrating and gets dug into the product, and the sponge can be hard to get out. Still with the problematic packaging, I adore this product. It definitely has a place, still, in my beauty habits...I just don't use it as often. If you're a minimal makeup kinda person, then I think this would DEFINITELY be great for you.
I was so excited to order this. I wasn't that impressed. I didn't really even like the smell of it and it doesn't make my skin super silty smooth like the reviews stated. I actually felt that I had more softness just by adding the Porefessiona (which I love by the way and I don't really have excessively large pores). I think that at this price I should have made my face feel like a baby's butt- however, not the case! I wouldn't repurchase this product.

I prefer this on it's own rather than under foundation as it feels a bit heavy.
When i was at sephora i was hesitant to buy it and it was a big mistake. i tried it at my friends house and fell in LOVE i bought two! its such a perfect primer and its so silky smooth. i absolutely recommend this to everyone
Dr. Feelgood makes me feel great!
I always use this as a primer because it makes my skin feel so smooth and silky. However, it doesn't really seem to reduce the appearance of fine lines. But minor gripe aside, Dr. Feelgood makes it so much easier for me to apply my foundation and/or powder.

This is the most perfect product ever! It leaves your face with an amazing velvety feeling. It makes easier to apply my tinted moisturizer and the best thing is that you can use it solo if you wish. A must have!
Versatile, easy to use
I took off one heart because I can't use this product on my face when my skin is dry, so I would suggest making sure your face is well moisturized so the balm doesn't make the dry patches on your face even drier. Other than that, I love this product, and it's a plus that it goes a long way. This was one of the first products I started using when I got serious about makeup, so I like that I can wear it alone for shine control, but it also works if I want to use it with foundation and other products. I think one could almost stay up at night trying to figure out how the heck this balm makes your skin so soft and smooth, but hey, it works! Tip: store the sponge that comes with the product with the used side facing up. When I stored the sponge with the used side against the product, I think the oils picked up on the sponge dried out the product.
Been using since 2006 and it makes my skin feel like silk. Extremely lightweight and cannot feel it but know it's working since my skin is never clogged and makeup (powder and creme blushes) glide on with no drag. I wear this under my makeup as a primer to benefit from the ingredients. My skin is mature and is combination but dry in the Winter season. Great product!
I don't really like heavy makeup (even foundation seems too much for me). But I couldn't even apply moisturizer, as my skin became oily in like 30 minutes, with or without it, however some places stayed dry to the point of peeling. Dr. Feelgood is something I can't live without now. Problem solved.
Does wonders for my skin!
A makeup artist originally gave this product to my mom, but I quickly snatched it from her. It does wonders for my skin! I have a lot of discoloration/un-even skin tone from the sun, stress, etc.. as well as some minor acne scars. not only does this make my skin that much more bright, it soothes it when looking dry and tired and fills in my scars! i love love love it!
Love it <3
I just apply this every morning, and oh! I feel baby-skinned definitely love it
Dr. Feelgood to the Rescue!
I have weird skin that manages to be both dry and oily, so I use Dr. Feelgood not as a primer the way some do, but as a halfway-though-the-day makeup pick-me-up. When the makeup on my nose and forehead starts to feel like it's sliding off, I gently pat Dr. Feelgood on my shiny spots and it's like I've washed my face and reapplied (or better, because it's not nearly as time-consuming). I know my reviews say this all the time, but I'll caution users that a little goes a long way. Don't swipe on gobs of this stuff; it'll be a terrible product if you do. Just lightly swipe the sponge across the balm, then gently (and I mean gently) pat onto your skin (yes, right on top of your makeup). Don't rub it or anything. Pretend you're the daintiest little flower in the world and pat your face with the applicator like they always do in old movies. This stuff is a dream if you use it right! Also, this smells fantastic, and while this is neither here nor there, the girls at the Benefit Counter I didn't even know we had in Winston-Salem until today (!!!) were fabulous and adorable when I admitted I felt like I might faint from sheer joy. So I'll grant you my love for this product comes with some emotional strings attached, but it truly is a must-have.

i do love this, wore it for the 3rd time yesterday on a very hot day and even after many many hours my make up still looked fantastic. Great product, i just hope it doesnt dry out like some of the others have said.
this product is fantastic,it makes ur skin very velvet,and make u feel very mat,u sure will be mat all day!!!
i bought this for the first time last year and was amazed!!im a teenager so oily skin is a problem this instantly mattifies my skin and reduces the look of pores!!!!it also smells fab and is small so handbag friendly the only down side is the sponge can get a little dirty quickly i wash mine regularly and just us the chemist brand sponges job well done benefit <3
This product delivers on its promise
I do not exaggerate when I say I have extremely oily skin. I've tried every product under the sun and have been disappointed with them all. I have recently discovered Benefit Cosmetics and Dr. Feelgood. I am in love with this product. I feel confident in my skin again with Dr. Feelgood and I'm not embarrassed to go out in public anymore. I am loving the way my skin looks and feels now because of Dr. Feelgood. I also wrote a review about it on my blog, The Curve Style. http://thecurvestyle.com/blog/?p=128
Perfect for oily skin!
I'm a teenager who gets quite oily skin on my nose, and it would only be about 2 hours before the shine would come through pressed powder that i wear. I was looking through Benefit with my mum one day and she just so happened to bring it up, and the lady on the counter suggested Dr Feelgood. We didn't buy it at first because of the price...but a couple of weeks later my mum gave in! I was amazed the first day i started wearing it; no oil at all! It was right at the beginning of the summer, too when it tends to be worse because of the heat. I'd definitely recommend this product to people with oily skin. My only tiny little error is that it crumbles a bit after a fair bit of use, but that might just be me! ;)
Love, love, love this product. Helps cover imperfections and leaves my skin soft. I would have given it 5 hearts but the packaging is terrible. It comes in a metal can with a metal lid without a twist thread to screw onto the can. If your hands are wet or have lotion on them it is impossible to get the lid off. Please make this can easier to get into. I have to use towels, facial tissue, or even a T-shirt to separate the lid from the can. The description on the bottom of the can says it "helps to smooth away the appearance of fine lines while leaving skin feeling and looking more silky, flawless and matte to the touch." This is true!! A really great finishing product that I swear by! I have repurchased many of these hard-to-open cans simply because I love this product so much! I would give the product 10 hearts and the packaging zero.
Great for Touch Ups
I love to use this as a touch up product on the go to take away shine instead of a typical pressed powder. Just be sure to dab it on and not swipe so it won't disturb your make up. I can apply it numerous times and it will never look cakey, chalky or heavy. Just gives you that natural matte finish. If I can make a suggestion to change the packaging I would included a mirror and a separate compartment for the sponge ;-)

After reading some of the reviews on the site I had to try it. I have the most oily skin ever and I really thought this product would live up to the hype. I probably should have even tried it at the counter but I was so eager to get home and try it out for myself. The packaging is super adorable, it makes you almost not want to open it! I don't like the sponge that is inside of the canister and I feel it didn't applicate well because of it. I probably got about hour of wear before my face began to shine through. About 3 hours into wear you could probably see your own reflection on my forehead! I tried MAC's prep and prime and that worked so much wonder for me! I wouldn't suggest this product to those with really oily skin. Those with normal skin would probably enjoy this more than I did.

The primer itself, it's amazing. It smells divine, my skin's never been that smooth before and even though it looks a bit greasy, miraculously mattify your complexion with 2 or 3 pats. However, the way Benefit pulls off this product kind of bugs me. The packaging, though it's gorgeous, isn't very practical and it ruins a very decent primer. You have to apply it with a sponge, wich gets dirty SO quickly. You always have to place the little sheet that comes inside the pot so carefully otherwise the primer will dry out in the corners and get all crumbly on your face. If you do your makeup routine in a rush every morning, like me, this might not be your ideal primer.

This is my "I don't feel like wearing makeup" fix. I just use this over my face toss on some mascara and lip balm and go. It gives your skin that soft feeling yet it keeps it from looking oily and greasy so it's perfect when you're running errands on a busy Saturday and don't feel like being overly done up. I've also used this just after putting on my foundation and it helps it stay in place especially when dealing with the heat & humidity which can make your makeup try and run away.
balm is perfect for COMBO skin!!
Aside from its velvety smooth feeling when you first put it on, it ALWAYS feels like that EVERY time! It smells great, keeps my face from getting oily. A little goes a long way, all you have to do is apply a light amount and you are great. Be sure to wash the sponge occassionally if used constantly and the sponge keeps the balm from drying out.
When I don't have time for base this is my go to product. Makes your skin feel like velvet and it last the whole day! Defiantly worth every penny and the product its-self lasts for ages :o) Works better for me when I use my fingers, don't throw the sponge away because it seems to protect the product from drying out on top.
I never could understand why nothing I did made my nose...
I never could understand why nothing I did made my nose less shiny- Until dr. feelgood. Thank goodness- mattify without powder!
i love using dr. feelgood under my foundation. i don't apply this all over, rather just the top portion of my face. i use my dr. feelgood on those days where i have all the time in the world to apply my face!
i found it to be a little to greasy for me........

It Makes My Skin Look SOOOO Nice
It really is hard to explain why I love this so much. 1. When I first bought it the smell was loverly. 2. I have fine crows feet and it irons them out wonderfully. 3. With continuous use my pores look smaller. 4. It gives my face a nice dewy glow. I love love love this and will be buying it again as I am touching pan.
This is a great way to smooth out uneven skin
I don't wear much makeup because I have such sensitive skin, but this with a little brush of dandelion is all I need!
I love this balm. It works great as a primer over my dense pore areas and keeps my makeup from settling into fine lines. It has a smooth finish, not at all sticky or shiny. I also use it throughout the day under my eyes, around my nose and mouth to keep it looking freash. Make sure to only blot if you have makeup on already, or it will pill (roll) and won't look smooth. I do with there was a mirror on the inside lid ;)
I very much like the finish this gives. Matte, smooth, dewy. On days my skin is feeling drab or just pathetic-looking, I like to use dr. feelgood, hello flawless, and dandelion! I have one complaint though: The product has a strange odor to it. I can't really pinpoint what it is but I'm not fond of it. However, it doesn't linger so it doesn't prevent me from applying it.
smooth skin & shine free skin!
This product works great when you apply it with your fingertips. Get rid of the sponge and you'll get the right amount applied and the matte effect will last for hours.
dr.feelgood makes my skin feel good! My skin has not yes adapted to the high altitude in Utah yet so sometimes I will be very dry and other times I will be very oily and shiny. In conjunction with Dear John I use dr.feelgood to control my skin's radiant glow :) It only takes a moment to apply and can easily be used under or on top of existing makeup. I use dr.feelgood under One Hot Minute to give my skin an effortless sexiness.
This product is really greasy. It gives the matte finish, but it's greasy. It's decent though. It gives skin a dewy finish

If i think i look good with my other benefit products, i just pat this over the top and instantly look a million times better! Also, when im on an off day, just swiped over the top of That Gal primer, takes 1 min and makes the natural me that bit more presentable!
I use this over makeup and I just recenty tried it under makeup as a primer and WOW! The only primer I've ever used that absolutely keeps the shiny face away--all day! And I've tried plenty, I'm 55 years old. I do not have to touch up at all during the entire day when I use this. It makes my skin look and feel petal soft, and diffuses fine lines too. A fabulous product as are all Benefit products. Thanks!

I love this balm! I have trouble with dry spots on my face and this is a perfect corrector!
I have combination/oily skin that is also sensitive with red undertones (lucky me, I know...) I wanted to love this product... I just can't! I really like the way it makes my skin feel, but on the days I use it, it seems I get more oily faster. I first tried That Gal, and it also made my skin look gorgeous at first, but a few hours later it was like triple the oil factor of normal. I read the reviews for Dr Feelgood and decided to try it... I just didn't get the results of most of the other reviewers. Its been a few months now, and most days I just pat a little on my "wrinkle" areas to keep them smooth. I so want to use it all over and get the results everyone else does, but it just isn't meant to be.
Love the product
I have extremely oily and shiny skin and this product works perfectly for me my foundation stayed on and not even a tiny bit of shine and my redness has gone down considerably. The only complaint I have is the sponge because it gets dirty quite quickly which can cause infections in acne prone skin. I tried washing it with regular soap but it did not get completely clean. Would be 100% perfect if there was some better way of applying it but would definitely buy again even if it means buying a new sponge every two weeks.
great for oily skin
This is a great classic benefit product...for people with oily skin. I personally have dry skin and it just doesn't work out on myself. I love the smell and texture but it seems to emphasize my dryness and when i put my helloflawless on over it got cakey in some areas. HOWEVER!! I am a makeup artist and i adore using this on my oily skin clients. It soaks up oil and leaves their skin supple and ready for a smooth non greasy makeup application. For dry skin people i would recommend the pore-fessional. Im obsessed with that.
Dr. Feelgood and That Gal
I love benefit primers. I have very oily skin, so I'm sorry ladies if you have oily skin like I do, no primer in the world is going to keep you oil free all day. I received That Gal in the Fab Lane gift box that I splurged on for myself. It was wonderderful. The pink tint did really brighten my complexion and it felt great on my skin. After about 3 hours that pesky oil began to break through. Then I read a few reviews about Dr. Feelgood. So I asked the lady at the Ulta benefit bar what she thought. She said I should try the Dr. Feelgood and that it was really good for longer lasting mattifying. She was was right! I really love the Dr. Feelgood, it doesn't feel heavy, it smells nice and clean and I love that it can be applied with it's own sponge. I only had to blot my face with a kleenex once at about 3pm and I had applied it at 6am. In my book, that's miraculous and after I blotted, my make-up still looked perfect. As for That Gal, I will continue to use it for times when I know I'll only be wearing make up for a few hours like at a party or just to run errands, but for work and longer hours, Dr. Feelgood it perfect!
Highly recommended for women of color
I have dark complexion and reserve wearing face powder for special occasions - because the powder is a darker color, I tend to smear it on EVERYTHING (especially papers - not a good look when it's for work lol) My time is also valuable (and don't have much of it) so I like something that is quick, simple, and gives great results. This Dr. Feelgood balm does it. I use this as a primer then follow it with the You Rebel tinted moisturizer. It's literally full proof, and my skin feels and looks so soft, while I still maintain my natural look.
Pore stealth experts
I like benefit Dr.feelgood so much.Many of my friends are using this product, said the effect is good, especially in summer, for easy to take oil friends, it is the savior. Finished using it, and narrow pore really have skin becomes smooth. This product in isolation breasts with, and use after pressing the means daub, again on block defect and powdery bottom, will make makeup effect very durable, before I'm half is oil T word, now at the end of the day will not give oil, makeup will fall. It feels very slippery, like silk different, but the freeze, coated in the face is very easy tu2 open, besmear after will feel like to play on his face was covered in a thin transparent waxy, can let the facial skin shangqu very smooth, like pores are getting didn't like. This suits summer oily skin or t-zone compares oil girl with, if be drying skin better don't use, that estimate the country in the dry it. Summer morning on makeup before use it render, besmear again cosmetics will compare docile, and won't make oil.
A great primer!
This product controls oil, minimizes pores and fine lines, and makes your face feel soft. It works great under your makeup as a primer, but if you have an exceptionally long day and begin looking a bit shiny you can just pat a tiny bit on top of your makeup; it's very lightweight and never feels thick or greasy.
Silky matte feeling that stays
Very unusual for me to put something OVER make-up! But pressed lightly into the skin with the sponge - dab and pat, no sweeping! - , it fixes foundation and powder and keeps it stay and matte. Perfect for an evening make-up without incessant anti-shine powder touch-ups. Little advice: do not apply near to the eyes when your eyes (like mine) are extremely sensitive, the camphor, one of the purifying ingredients, might cause an uncomfortable feeling.
although it looks like oily, it really makes my skin no more oily!!! even a whole day! my oily skin really gives me a lot of trouble. and i am too lazy to clean it every 2 or 3 hours. and now i dont need any more with this product!!!haha
if u onec have it,i am sure u'll love it forever. it makes my skin looking more silky just like baby's.every girl merit it.
great smell, good for sensitive places!
I usually use this at night before going to sleep, mostly during the winter. I put it around my eyes (cause the area is thin and more prone to damage) and my lips! I tried using it around my face, but it just doesn't work. It smells great, does look greasy, and goes on smoothly.
I love this product <3
This is the best cosmetic i ever used ! I said about it my friends and they bought like tons of it ! It makes me skin looks so nice and fresh ! I think the price is good and it works really well ;) i am using it every day
I love this product. It leaves your skin feeling velvety soft. You do not feel sticky or cakey when you put this on. This is a must for any make up bag.With the holidays coming up this is perfect to have on hand to put on before you go out or just a little makeup pick me up. And would make a great stocking stuffer.
i can't live with out it
I can not really live without it, I'm someone else, my face looks great, now I can be more comfortable during the day because I know that i look great, is very light and brightens my face, makes my skin look smoother
it makes my face really silky!!!!
based on the silky face, it is easy to blend foundation, and it avoids the oily skin until the late night. I love this product, it is third time for me to buy it!!!Cheers!!!
长草很久的东西，话说真的可以让完美底妆，而对于我来说，最吸引人的还是控油功效了呢。不久前终于败下。 有点类似于肥皂的膏体，很结实的感觉，基本上每次用粉扑左一圈右一圈的用量就够了。 在手背的右侧按压上猪油膏 记住，使用的时候一定是以按压的方式，如果来回摩擦，会出现泥条条 修饰毛孔的效果一般，可能是因为膏体偏向于透明色，不是很明显，控油效果不错，基本上冬天的话可以维持大半天，T区会稍微有点出油。涂开之后的手感有点类与于Fancl的那款T区控油精华，涂过之处脸上会非常的光滑。后续再上隔离，粉底，上妆效果会更加自然。 是一款很不错的底妆产品，后续还会继续做它的粉丝呢 缺点就是没有防晒指数
Love this balm but maybe not an essential
Dr. Feelgood does feel beautiful on the skin -- I use it underneath my foundation and it fills in my pores and gives a softness to my skin that I otherwise wouldn't have. Even on days I don't wear makeup, I still reach for this product to control shine and give me that smooth-skin feeling. Love it.
Great product for combination/oily skin.
Wearing Dr.Feelgood is like putting on a colourless foundation, the skin appears smooth and has a matte finish, and you can go all day without worrying about shine if you have oily skin. The smell makes you feel pampered and beautiful, and the packaging is so cute!
Makes my skin FellGood at last!
I had mixed feelings before buying this item after having read some negative reviews. I'm so pleased I did though! I have quite oily skin and this is fantastic for giving a matte finish that lasts for several hours. The smell is a light lemony scent that lingers on the skin for a while. The balm also creates a soft smoothness to the skin that you can't help stroking!
It is really an amazing product!! I love the smell, just...
It is really an amazing product!! I love the smell, just like the fresh rose. It is best for oily or combo skin!
It looks and smells great!
This is a great product and helps me throughout the day with my oily face. I've also noticed that it is not as oily as usual. I also love the scent. It's great and calming and adds the perfect touch.
This product makes my skin feel soo smooth!
First, I really love Benefit.. It makes me feel like a little kid because of the cute and unique packaging. I love wearing this product as a primer. It sets a smooth canvas for my face and I love the smell. After I put it on, my face feels and looks flawless. I really think it is good for my skin because of the vitamin C. I don't put it over my makeup because I like to set my makeup with a setting powder when I am all done instead. I recommend this product a lot!
mattifies and silkifies!
This is such a lovely product for if you get a little oily in the t-zone and you need a mid-day touch up but don't want to use anymore makeup. Just pat pat this on and no more shine. Also works well with bald men that have shiney heads! And it fills in fine lines, too. Also, I love the smell and the packaging!
I love this stuff!
Dr. Feelgood does more than make your face feel fantastic. It seems like it "seals in" your moisturizer and leaves your skin feeling smooth like a baby's you-know-what. I absolutely love this stuff!
This product is amazing, it leaves skin soft tot he touch. It is weightless. You can wear under and/or over makeup for a refreshed look.
This product smells heavenly!
I love the smell of Dr. Feelgood, it wakes me up each morning, and the finish is so smooth that my foundation glides on it effortlessly! The tin packaging is so vintage and I love it!
Such a great texture! This product feels great on the skin.
good for oily skin
Dr. Feelgood has a matte effect that would be great on oily skin-it took every ounce of shine off of my face. But for dry skin like my own, it also took a bit of the mojo out. I would recommend that it is best for oily to combo skin.
Makes my skin look flawless. It smooths my wrinkles, minimizes my pores, and takes away my shine. It is extremely light weight. I am 36 years old and Ive had 20 year olds tell me that I have beautiful skin when I wear this.... I use it to touch up and take the shine down throughout the day.
This smells great and feels amazing. However it gets kind of hard in the tin and need to heat it up to spread it better.
Dr. Feelgood looks good.
Dr. Feelgood is a multi-tasking product that works well under or over makeup or for touchups. Try tucking the attractive compact in your make-up bag for a quick refreshing mid-day. I wouldn't be without it!
Makes me oily
They are always pushing this at cosmetics counters, but if you have oily skin this is the worst product. It did not keep me matte and I had to keep reapplying. It felt heavy on my face even when I was very sparing with applying it and eventually I started breaking out. I would avoid this product if you have combination or oily skin.
This product works well!
I love this stuff. It makes my skin feel smooth and keeps it from looking shiny. It was recommended to me by a friend and I LOVE it.
It "feels" good, doctor.
Dr. Feelgood goes on so smoothly and softens the fine lines and wrinkles. I was switching off with another and much pricier lifting cream. Both were running low and "BAM!" - I got an idea. I applied Dr. Feelgood to one side of my face and neck and the lifting cream to the other. Using a lighted magnifying mirror, I compared results. The Dr. Feelgood side looked remarkably better. Anyone would see the difference. It will only be Dr. Feelgood under my makeup from now on. Thanks Benefit cosmetics!
a good first step
i love the way this feels on my face -- i am a surgery resident so ease and quickness is key in the morning -- the dr can be used on its own and makes me less shiny and feel more put together immediately
a good step before makeup
I use it as a primer on T-area before makeup, and it is good to conceal the pores while making a balanced tone. Meanwhile,it contributed to the long stay of makeup. It is perfect if your skin is oil or you have an oil T-area.
my only go to make up!
im not a huge make up person and dont take the time to do my make up every morning, but this gets put on, without fail everyday, and always gets thrown in my purse on the way out the door, love it!
very unique product
I think this is a very cool product. It's a little retro, it even has a retro medicinal scent and I like it! I use it on my neck to and it makes it feel really smooth. I pat it around my eyes (using the thin edge of the sponge) to kind of blur the little lines that are starting to show. I don't need to use much of the product to get the desired effect. If I use the included sponge, I can pat it on very lightly, its easy to apply. The thing I like most about it is that I can use it wherever my foundation (I use mineral makeup) looks too powdery, to make the texture look more natural. And I can use it to mattify my T-zone.
Perfect -- makes my pore invisible
I love it. I use it before I apply the foundation. It makes my pore invisible. Highly recommend you this product.
I absolutely LOVE this stuff! It not only is velvety, smooth & light, it also keeps shine at bay! A purchase that is always well worth it...A little goes a long way!
once you have got rid of all the flake it is good
I'm oily skin, before make-up, using this product can control the oily skin and make my skin smooth. I also love it's smell which can make me happy.
I guess I've tried just about every primer out there but this is the one I always come back to! Your skin really does feel like velvet when you use it and without ever feeling or looking greasy.
I've tried several other primers, and Dr. Feelgood did the best job of smoothing out my skin both under and without makeup. It also seemed to last better than the others... still felt at the end of a work day that it was still doing it's job.
needs to get better
This is the only product so far that doesn't work for me. I think it could go a long way if the formula is further developed. It just doesn't deliver the promise, it actually makes my skin oilier after applying it. Maybe it's the fact that it's a balm instead of some sort of powder, which I'd prefer, because when you apply the blam with the sponge, you sweep away the undelying makeup. I don't wear it anymore. Kept the tin, though, it's lovely.
Perfect for oily skin to apply under makeup
My skin is pretty oily, but with Dr feelgood, it looks good. At first I thought it'd be too oily for me.. I could not imagine at apply a layer of oil on top of my oily skin. However, to my surprise, it's a matt layer. It doesn't clog my pore, but provide protection of my skin. I've been using it for years. Really feel good!
Amazing Skin Balm!
This product is amazing. I have very fair skin that is not prone to breakouts. I rarely have marks or acne, but I do have very large pores on my t-zone as well as shine on my cheeks and forehead, as well as fine lines. This product cures all of this. Dr. Feelgood diminishes the appearance of pores, fine lines, and completely erases shine, all in a smoothing, great-smelling balm. It makes my skin truly soft, supple, firm and matte. I would recommend it as a make-up "softener" for anyone who requires foundation, concealer or cover-up. Just apply it over your foundation, and BAM- instantly your makeup is softer, less apparent, and much much more natural!
Great product for skin that can stay 'nude'
I love the product. The smell, the packaging (as with all benefit products)....But unfortunately, i can't really use it. My skin needs concealer because I'm very prone to acne. I don't like putting it on before using Boing because with the two products on top of each other, it feels like a thick layer on my skin. On days when I don't have a care in the world and I don't use my Boing, I like putting the Doctor to good use. He does make your face feel very soft and it is an enjoyable cream to wear. I have oily skin and i thought Dr Feelgood would be bad for it, but it doesn't really affect it. In summation: great product for nude days.
Silky and delicious)
Dr. Feel Good was my first product from Benefit. It's has a great smell and very pleasant texture. But I still can't understand when I should apply it! Before make up - it's not for my oily skin, after make up - all my powder disappear because I erase her with feelgood sponge! But if u have a perfect skin, u can just apply it to "naked" skin without make up)
Great if not used everyday
Dr. Feelgood is the best foundation primer I've ever used. It works well over or under powder and/or powder foundations, and it fills in lines, covers pores, and makes my skin feel like silk. Unfortunately, if I use it everyday I break out, and I think it's because this product is waxy. Therefore, I can't incorporate Dr. Feelgood into my daily routine. I do not like the scent of this product as I'm applying it, but the fragrance does fade quickly and doesn't irritate me throughout the day. Dr. Feelgood makes me look ten years younger, if used alone, over sunscreen, or as a foundation primer. Overall, compared to liquid silicone primers, this "waxy" primer causes less breakouts, and it never makes my makeup flake off my skin. It's fantasic, especially, in filling in my pores, but never drying out my skin.
Very nice product to mattify the shiny places
This balm is pretty good to mattify the T-zone. I use it nearly every day as I'm not a foundation lover. The smell is also nice - smells like a chamomile. The only con among pros is that the sponge gets the product out of the tin unevenly.

I LOVE "Dr. Feelgood"! I have very oily skin, and before I had this product I would keep reapplying powder to try and mattify my skin. But now?

My face does not feel cakey and looks fresh! I LOVE this product!

I wish this stuff had more instruction. I looked up EVERYthing about it and ways to use it and I am still unsure if it honestly makes a big enough difference - but it does smell good and make your face physically feel smoother.
