REVIEWS & QUESTIONS
Is Dr. feelgood hypoallergenic? is it good for people with allergies to use?
Is this product oil free?
Hi gorgeous! Dr. feelgood does not contain oil ingredients. xoxo, B

Dr. Feelgood does not contain animal derived ingredients.
Do I need to use make up remover to clean dr. feelgood? Do I need to use make up remover to clean dr. feelgood?
No, you don't need to use makeup remover for Dr. Feelgood. Your normal facial cleanser will remove it.
So what IS dr. feelgood? I mean like I know it's a weightless balm . . but when you apply it over makeup won't it rub it off? Or under would be sticky? I mean what do you REALLY use it for? (sorry for so many questions! :) ) "With the heartbreak open, So much you can't hide, Put on a little makeup, makeup Make sure they get your good side, good side!"
HI! If I apply it over makeup, my makeup totally rubs off. I apply it every morning BEFORE i put on my foundation. This is what it does and in chronological order: 1. Makes skin smooth (make sure you apply lotion before I Dr.FeelGood.) 2. Fills your pores so it’s a little less noticeable 3. It captures your foundation so you don’t have to apply a lot and it totally reduces the chances of you looking cakey. 4. Makes your make up look smooth and flawless and totally natural! I would def recommend you ty it. It is not a concealer. So if you want to look flawless, apply foundation over it.
Dr. Feelgood is a balm primer that you apply with your fingers or the accompaning sponge. It doesnt slide off and it is not sticky due to the very matte finish of the product. hope this helps!
Dr. Feelgood is a complexion balm that will help mattify shine, while keeping your skin silky soft. It won't rub off your makeup if you apply it with a sponge and press it onto the skin with a patting motion.
For acne? I've seen many reviews on the skin softening results of this product but how does to affect the acne your trying to cover up? I have sensitive skin with acne and some scars on my cheeks. Would this be too thick or cause breakouts ?
This balm is very lightweight. it does not cure breakouts and i have not heard of many people with it causing a breakout. Hope this helps
If you're prone to acne, you may want to try something like The Porefessional, which will absorb the extra oil and give you a really nice finish, with or without makeup.
What is the difference between Dr Feelgood and POREfessional? Hello, I am in search of a matifying primer, since I have very oily skin that gets greasy on the T zone. What is the difference between POREfessional and Dr Feelgood? Which is best for my skin? Thank you
Dr Feel Good was the first primer I purchased here and it still serves me well since 2006 as a primer or standalone product. I am now 49 but at 43 my skin was wrinkle-free and very oily. I never had an issue with my oily T-zone getting out of control when I used this product. I've tried the Porefessional and like it as well. My skin is sensitive, combination (but dry in the winter months now that it is mature). Try either product as neither has caused any hypersensitiviy in my skin. Dr Feel Good is a great balm and lasts a long time. Porefessional is delivered in a tube but works equally well.
Dr. feelgood mattifies shine, is a weightless balm that leaves skin feeling silky-soft. Fabulous for mid-day touch-ups... this makeup artist fave can be worn alone, under or on top of makeup. Contains Vitamins A, C & E to help smooth away the appearance of fine lines. POREfessional Quickly minimizeS the appearance of pores & fine lines for smoother-than-smooth skin! Apply this silky, lightweight balm alone, under or over makeup. Translucent, oil-free formula complements all skintones and helps makeup stay put. Contains a Vitamin E derivative, known to protect skin from free radicals.
what first dr feelgood or stay don't stray? My skin is mature, pale, oily in Tzone with lots of reddish areas; I start w/ Stay Don't Stray in problem areas then use Boing in same areas, top w/ Get Even and that seems to work. Once I apply Dr Feelgood coverage seems to decrease even though it does mattify when shine returns later in the day...what am I missing??
Stay don't stray is for your eye area whereas Dr. Feelgood is for the complexion. Have you tried the porefessional balm? it is a lightweight balm that smooths out pores and has a matte finish as well. Hope this helps
Is it fine to use dr. feelgood on eye area? (not eye lid)
Your eye area is very fragile, I do not recommend using a face primer for your eyes. If you would like a primer for your eye area, try "stay don't stray".
Is dr. feelgood for older gals? I am in my early forties, and in the past I loved "that gal". Since then I have developed a bit of rosacea and find that it makes it look worse. I want a primer that will hide my little wrinkles and tame my rosacea. Is this the primer I need? I do love using LemonAid for the really red spots but I want an allover primer.
In my personal experience, this does really nothing to hide wrinkles, pores, or laugh lines. I'm in my late 20's, but I have always had small laugh lines by my eyes, and my pores are impressive (in my opinion at least! lol), and I've never noticed this product to have hidden any lines. The pores, on the other hand, can sometimes appear slightly smaller, as, for me, this balm leaves my skin feeling smooth and relaxed (maybe it's just mental?). For the rosacea, I have found that this will help almost 'cool' the feeling of your skin, so it can even the tone the slightest bit, but if the redness is pronounced, as rosacea generally is, this would not be my choice. If I were in your shoes, I'd stick with my lemon-aid for the redness, and the porefessional or primed and poreless for pores and small wrinkles. Now, if you're looking for something to tame greasiness and keep the shine monster at bay, this may be for you. I don't use it daily, but when I'm going out with minimal makeup, I use this as an all-over face balm, and just add a little benetint & mascara with it. It's great for your minimal days, for sure!
My dr.. feelgood has lint stuck to it I have taken really god care of it never left it open i dont know why all this lint gets on the balm?
One of the things I learned early on is to either keep your sponge in a container of its own sealed & separate, or to leave the little piece of vellum/paper separator between the two IN the tin. If you don't do this, and if you don't police your sponge applicator after every use for specks of dust/lint/eye sleep stuff, every tiny little piece of debris that MIGHT have been on your face will become embedded in your balm. Next time you buy a new one, try one of those tricks; I bet it cuts down on your lint a LOT.
Will dr feel good works well with dry skin? Saw many good reviews about this product,and thinking to get it. I have very dry skin and wondering does dr feelgood help to mousturize my skin?
i have very dry skin as well and it isnt a moisturizer but it defenately helps relieve some of my dry flaky patches. Hope this helps!
Yes, I've seen my gfs who have dry skin use this product sucessfully. It's so light that you don't know you have it on. The added benefits of the ingredients soothe skin and if you're already exfoliating and keeping your skin fresh and clean, this product helps you to keep it that way.
Washing sponge? Is it possible to wash the sponge that comes with Dr. Feel Good? If so, what is the best way?
Definitely! And it's recommended. As another answer said, bacteria can grow more easily that you'd probably like to think. Local beauty stores sell products made specifically for brush or sponge cleaning, but my old (& inexpensive!) fallback is Johnson & Johnson baby shampoo. Really, anything mild works well. Work a small amount into your sponge under warm water to remove as much build up as possible, rinse completely, and either hang up, or lie out to dry in a place with good airflow. You want to make sure they dry as quickly as possible, so bacteria and mold doesn't begin to grow & undo all you've just done. You can use this same method with your brushes, too. Just make sure, with brushes, that you re-form them to their original shape, so they remain next to new. Oh, and with your sponges, don't be alarmed if they seem a little bigger than they originally were. These kind of sponges seem to spread a little over time. With proper use & care, you'll get plenty of use, but don't expect them to last a lifetime!
It's hygenic to wash the sponge since bacteria can accumulate and cause breakouts on your face. The best way I've found to clean my sponge is by using a skin cleanser that you would normally use for your face. In my case, it's usually a creamy milk cleanser or a foaming cleanser (all gentle formulas).
Of course you can! Just use a gentle hand or dish soap.
I have combo-oily skin, will this product make my skin shine even more?
My skin is both oily and dry, but I've never had problems with dr. feelgood. In fact it's the only primer that mattifies my skin instead of making it shine more. But I recommend you try it out before bying.
No! It'll get rid of the shine completely! My skin is the same as yours, and Dr feelgood is probably the best thing i've ever bought!
Dr. Feelgood is an invisible, weightless balm that will help mattify shine and leave your skin feeling silky-soft. Fabulous for mid-day touch-ups... this makeup artist fave can be worn alone, under or on top of makeup. Contains Vitamins A, C & E to help smooth away the appearance of fine lines.
Is Dr. Feelgood a long-lasting primer? Dr. Feelgood is meant to leave skin feeling great, but does it actually keep your make up on for long>
For those with normal skin, yes. For those with oily-dry skin, no.
yeah ive tried it and it does last for long but you need to reapply it for a night out
dr. feel good or bo-ing i have combination [oily & sensitive] skin, and i want to hide my enlarged pores on my cheeks. Also my skin tone is not even. So my question is: shall I get the complexion balm? or the concealer? thanks!
Enlarged pores and oily skin tend to go hand in hand. I'd start with this to matte your skin and reduce oil. Then blot your skin with some porefessional. Finish off by evening out your skin with Some Kind-A Gorgeous. Now your skin should look less oily, but you probably feel like you're messing something. Take a powder brush and dab your skin with girl meets pearl. Viola-- you're all set!
Both, but start with Dr. Feelgood. It will make your complexion look matte and will kind of "fill in" your pores (without clogging them), which will certainly help a lot on its own. However I would purchase the concealer as well (at a later date if price is an issue), because paired with Dr. Feelgood, your skin will look amazing. Just be sure to use both with a light hand!
I suggest you go with POREfessional. It will quickly minimize the appearance of pores & fine lines for smoother-than-smooth skin! Apply this silky, lightweight balm alone, under or over makeup. Translucent, oil-free formula complements all skintones and helps makeup stay put. Contains a Vitamin E derivative, known to protect skin from free radicals.
How do you apply dr. feel good balm? How do you apply the dr. feel good balm?
I just started using Dr. Feel-good and I apply it as a primer before my foundation (around my nose where i have bigger pores). Then I keep it in my bag and use it underneath my eyes, and any places that seem a little drab during the day. It helps keep my makeup looking fresh throughout the day, without reapplying more power/foundation. Hope this helps beautiful!~
blot it on over or under makeup with the accompanying sponge, but DO NOT drag the sponge on your face- it might pill! instead use your fingers to softly smudge-tap and blend it out. i like it best underneath fdtn xo
