Great face brightening product

Location: South Wales
Eyes: Blue
Skin tone: Fair
Love that it's: “Amazing smelling, Great for dewy skin”

I bought this in September after a makeover and it has become my go to product after moisturising. I find it really brightens my skin up and I have little need for a highlighter when using this. It also helps give the skin a pretty, dewy look. A definite must have in my make up bag and a product I can't live without. It also smells delicious.

Brightening & smells good too

Love that it's: “brightening, smells good”

I love this product a lot because , 1 it really brightens my complexion (without foundation or concealer)and eases redness, 2 it smells amazing . I find that it doesn't really brighten my face under foundation though so I knocked of one star .

Love that it's: “so moisturising”

I love this product because it smells amazing, makes your skin feel refreshed and moisturised, helps reduce redness and works quite well as a primer! Definitely recommend this product

I love this!

Location: Wiltshire
Eyes: Hazel
Skin tone: Light
Love that it's: “Got such a scrumptious smell”

It is easy to apply! I prefer to ware this product on its own over my moisturiser for a real fresh, dewy look. When I use foundation over it, it makes my skin look more oily! I would definitely recommend to my friends, especially ones who have dry, dull skin.

Honest review

Location: North Lincolnshire
Eyes: Blue
Skin tone: Light
Love that it's: “brightening”

I want and always like to see honest reviews about a product.Now I have to be honest and say this is a lovely smelling primer and does feel great on the skin,it is a perfect canves for my makeup.It does give a beautiful glow from under foundation of not layered on.I have found this to be a nice a primer with my normal skin,the only downside is that I do not find that it keeps makeup on any longer than if you was not to use this under your foundation.There is no staying power to this at all.I would stay clear if you have oily skin.If you have dry,normal to combination skin I think this would suit you fine.I do believe it's claims to a have a "soothing"'effect.ive knocked 1 star off due to not locking in your foundation

Good but overpriced

Location: San Francisco

I like this product a lot and would buy regularly and wear daily if it wasn't so expensive for such a small amount of product. Wish they'd make a no frills bulk version with more product or lower the price. Besides for the price, it's perfect.. minimizes poors, smooths skin, and pretty pink color does "brighten" and give a youthful look

Does not live up to my expectations.

Location: Hampshire
Eyes: Brown
Skin tone: Fair
Love that it's: “got a lovely smell!”

I find this product very underwhelming. Firstly, to be called a primer, it needs to live up to what people's expectations of a primer are, and that is to prep the skin and fix makeup in place to LAST. This product however, does not do this - my makeup actually lasts longer without using this product beforehand. Secondly, this product is supposed to "brighten your complexion". Unfortunately this also does not happen - with the primer underneath my foundation, no glow comes through! Finally, I was told that the ingredients of chamomile and soothing raspberry would ease redness. My skin is just as red, if not more red after applying this product (I have very pink undertones) . Such a waste of money! It gets one star because it smells good!

Pretty Pink Primer

Location: Scotland

Love that it's: “Natural, Pretty”

This primer really helps to brighten your complexion and looks great on any skin tone. However, I do find that if you layer foundation over it that you don't see much difference

Really brightens the skin

Great product!

Location: London

I purchased this in the duty free section of an airport after previously buying the 'do the bright thing' kit, which features this as a mini bottle. This is great- you need so little, and i love how easy it is to use... You can noticeably see a difference in my complexion now, and i often blend it with 'girl meets pearl' which seems to be a great combination. Thumbs up!

My Number One

Location: Maine, USA

This product was one of the first makeup products I've ever used and nothing has really matched up since, despite it having been several years since I first tried it. It brightens my face, brings some color to my face, and makes my skin feel so soft. I love it!! I just can't find anything quite like it and nothing even comes close to matching it.

Full Blown Reaction

Location: Undisclosed

I am usually a huge fan of benefit's face products but i had an awful reaction with this. It had both almond oil and sesame oil which are popular allergens and there was no warning!!! im very allergic to both and i had a full blown reaction all over my face!!

Apr 28, 2015

this product is AMAZING!!!

Location: chicago, illnois

i have fairly oily skin and i love this product! i was kind of nervous, but i love that this doesn't have a silicon-y texture that most primers have. it leaves my skin feeling nice and soft, and i definitely see a difference when i use it under my makeup.

Apr 9, 2015

Great product poor packaging

Location: Arab, AL 35016, USA

I LOVE That Girl Primer. I use it every day, either just the primer and a little powder or full out makeup day. I love the way it feels, it smells so good and my complexion has never been better while wearing this product. The only draw back is the tube that it comes in has no indication how much you have used. There have been many of times I go to use it and it be empty and I have to go without. There used to be a trial size that came with a porefesional too that I bought just because of the packaging. I wish I could find that again...

I love this Benefit product so much I have reviewed it fully on my blog along with two other primers! check it out and let me know what you think in the comments! the link is www.emmamariewills.blogspot.co.uk

Location: Undisclosed

This primer does its job well. It helps my makeup stay on for a longer period of time, it makes my face smoother and softer, and it smells so good! The main problem about it is that it doesn't contain much product for the price it is given. Benefit should make the packaging bigger, or make the price lower. Also, I just don't get why it is called "brightening" primer, because it didn't really bright my face that much. Anyway, I liked it but I will probably not buy it again because the price is too high for such a small amount of product inside.

Dec 24, 2014

Love it..

Location: Monterey, CA, USA

I've try a lot of primers, nothing comes to to this one. I'm so glad I switch over to Benefit.

Excellent for dry skin

Location: New Zealand

I'll admit, I had low expectations for this after not seeing good reviews for it but I was so wrong! I tried this not long ago and it was fantastic! It definitely created a smoother base for my foundation and it kept my makeup looking fresh all day! I really like the smell too.. smells like candy! Not sure how good it would be for oily skin - I used to have very oily skin but have only tried this primer since its been drier, having said that it did seem to Mattify my hello flawless foundation more than my porefessional does.

From the second the lady @ Boots putted this product on my face i fell in love with it! I mix it with my foundation for a light clear look :-)

Pretty Perfect Indeed

Location: Scotland, UK

I received this in a mini set with the 'Do the Bright Thing' set and I never really touched it as I wasn't 100% sure as what I would do with it. SO after a few months I decided to take the plunge and just use it and I don't know why I never used it in the first place. It creates a gorgeous glow on your face. I still use foundation though as I feel I am too pale and have red blotches on my skin - not nice. Thinking about purchasing the big bottle of it... hurry up pay day!

Aug 19, 2014

Not for oily skin!

Location: Los Angeles, CA, USA

I received a sample size of this item in my Beauty Score (which is AMAZING and a great deal) and I tried it out for the first time today. I applied it all over, just as I have been doing with my sample of the POREfessional and went about my morning. I looked in the mirror around noon and my face was SO oily I literally gasped. Not dewy, oily. I don't have this problem with the POREfessional, so I know it has to be this formula. Bottom line: I would not recommend this for people with oily skin. Not cute. :(

Jul 28, 2014

The perfect Primer

Location: Sydney NSW, Australia

This primer is perfect for my skin which is usually quite dry/dehydrated. It leaves a lovely dewy finish all day without looking oily. I also found that my make-up stayed on much better when using this primer. I absolutely adore it and would recommend it to anyone with slightly dryer skin.

Jul 26, 2014

Gives your face a natural glow

Location: Sydney NSW, Australia

Love this product! I use it on my cheeks to give them a natural younger looking pink glow. Find it a bit expensive though for the amount you get. If I were to use it daily it wouldn't last long, so I only use it sometimes.

Jul 25, 2014

strawberry icecream

Location: The Netherlands

It smells like strawberries, has thesame colour too. This is good for under a yellow tinted foundation. Foundation lasts longer and stays in place. Doesn't do much for me without foundation on top. It's not blending or melting with my foundation.

That gal is awesome!

Location: Undisclosed

A pleasant mood comes easy with this one!

Jul 18, 2014

just all-round gorgeous!

Location: London, UK

I use this every day when I don't want foundation. It adds a subtle, healthy glow and feels beautiful. I'm a bit of an oily Olly, but this is perfect. I'd recommend this to anyone, and may even start giving it as gifts.

Jul 9, 2014

Love this

Location: Maidenhead, Windsor and Maidenhead, UK

Love how this product makes my skin feel. Perfect for putting on and not needing any make on up.

May 30, 2014

Great Product, Convenient Packaging!

Location: St. Louis, MO, USA

I love this product! It really does brighten your skin, as if you've just been to a spa all day! I like to layer this under make up, or wear alone if I'm just running out and about! I also love the packaging. It's just a nice standard type of package, nothing odd shaped or anything. Easy to get just the right amount of product out. It looks pink when you take it out, but I really don't find that it leaves any sort of pink tint on the skin or anything! The product lasts a long time as well, so its a great value!

May 27, 2014

need more shades

Location: Chicago, IL, USA

I love this product! Great consistency, lasting. However, WAY too light for me. I know it's supposed to be brightening, but this just washes me out. Please at least make a medium

Mar 22, 2014

Nice for dry skin

Location: Copenhagen, Denmark

I bought this because i needed a primer for a water based foundation for my wedding make up and this is water based with some silicone. It works well with silicone based foundation, have not got to try it with the water based one yet. It has a good smell, the pink color really helps to even out my yellow toned skin. 2 things i don't like about it is you get only 11 ml product for the price. It contains many kind of parabens.... WHY?

Feb 15, 2014


Location: Undisclosed

I'm shocked! This primer truly brightens my face. My makeup lasts all day with this. It doesn't have a strong smell. Its is my holy grail primer!

Truly brightens

My face looks fresh and healthy after applying this primer. :)

Subtle glow and best primer I ever had

Location: Singapore

I have tried many types of primer but Benefit's THAT GAL doesn't clog my pores (relatively big) and it preps my face for any foundation and blusher. I love how it smells too! :)

Jan 28, 2014

A Must Have

Location: Springdale, AR, USA

I use this product every day and I love it. I can't go without it. I mix it with my foundation to even out the color (I have pink undertones) and it helps my makeup to stay and look luminous. The tube design is awesome too because you get every drop out. This is my HG primer.

Jan 27, 2014

Best primer yet!

Location: Liverpool, Merseyside, UK

I love this product, goes on really easy and works as such a fab primer that I now don't use foundation and still look natural. I literally use this with powder and blusher and I'm ready for a whole day.

Beauty Staple - don't pass it up!

Location: Seattle, WA, USA

I've been using this for maybe four years now, and it's just lovely. The raspberry scent isn't too potent and it is deliciously girly. I love priming with this in the morning, it gives the PERFECT dewy glow and has never caused any trouble for my VERY SENSITIVE SKIN! It's such a great buy because if you never thought you would use something like this - just try it, you will not know how you lived without it.

Serves its purpose, but isn't ideal

Location: Connecticut

"That gal" certainly lives up to its claim of being a brightening face primer. It made my skin glow, without becoming oily (very important for me). However, be careful not to apply too much. Even if you really want your skin to shine, it'll just end up looking a couple of shades lighter. This primer smells pretty nice, but I tend to only pay attention to how my makeup smells if it's so bad it makes me want to throw up. I doubt you'll notice how it smells, anyway. I can't very well give this primer less than four stars because it is perfect for dry skin types. Too bad my combination skin doesn't benefit as much (see what I did there?). That Gal has a perfect texture. It's light, creamy and velvety, it goes on smooth and even, and sinks into your skin. Basically, it's smudge-proof. I hate makeup that can slide around my face or rub off. If you really want to go for an effortless, natural look (that won't need any touch-ups), stick to the types of products that leave no residue! Start with this over the porefessional, which sits on top of your face and can be messed up. Top it off with Benetint for your cheeks and lips, and Badgal mascara, which is clean and clump-free. You'll look perfect when you put it on, and your face will stay that way for the whole day. The packaging was pretty cool, too. Gotta love Benefit.

Nothing To Write Home About

Location: Dallas, Tx

It just doesn't do anything for me. I've already got a naturally rosy complexion, so that gal doesn't really add to it. Not impressed.

Dec 23, 2013

Good Buy!

Location: Singapore, SG

This primer helps to brighten my skin, especially when I'm lacking sleep and under stress. The fragrance is sweet but light enough and the texture is not oily, which is important for my combination-prone-to-breakout skin! Love it!

Nov 22, 2013

Its Ok

Location: Sydney NSW, Australia

I love the smell and packaging of this product but im not really sure whether it does anything for me. I dont think it helps my foundation stay on any longer and i dont think it brightens my face. I feel i need something under my foundation so i use it for that reason, but at the moment im still trying to work out whether its working for me.

Nov 13, 2013

Love it!!

Location: Ontario, Canada

I love this product just as much as I love the Pore-fessional! This primer is better if you don't want to wear any makeup, like on weekends when you just need to chill and run errands. It just gives your complexion that extra little boost it needs to look glowy and beautiful!

An absolute essential!

Location: England, UK

I generally avoid higher priced make-up, but after I tried this I never looked back! I've tried many other primers but none make me look and feel as good as this one! I have very pale skin prone to being both extremely dry and rather oily, and I have a tendency to redness and imperfections, this primer works genuine miracles. I use it every day and all I need is some of this, concealer where needed and a little bit of powder (I get shiny) and I have beautiful, bright, glowing skin that stays that way ALL DAY. I would definitely recommend this product to anybody looking for a healthy dewy look - beautiful! xx

Nothing happens

I have been used it for a week. I don't see any different in my face. Doesn't works.

Sep 28, 2013

It's a Staple!

Location: Texas, USA

I use this product daily. I usually use it on top of the Pore-fessional, and sometimes I use it alone, or even under my foundation (in the rare event I use foundation). It is a nice product that provides light coverage, and a nice color. Keep an extra on hand, because you are unable to tell when you are about to run out.

Aug 31, 2013

Best primer ever tried!

Location: England

i was a bit dubious about this primer especially as its quite expensive and I've been fooled before into buying more expensive products thinking the quality is worth the price- this definitely is though. most primers I've tried don't actually do anything much but this manages to make my skin look healthy and dewy, on a good day I don't feel I need to put anything over the top which is brilliant as don't particularly like wearing foundation all the time but feel at certain times I do need some cover however it is still just a primer so it will not cover everything but it gets as close if not closer than anything else I've tried, one of my best buys this year without a doubt

Aug 15, 2013

It smells great

Location: New Zealand

It smells great, but when i put it on i find it doesn't help keep my makeup on and it makes my face oilier than usual.

Jun 30, 2013

One of my makeup staples

Location: Australia

This is the 4th tube of 'that gal' that I've purchased - and for good reason! I usually don't regularly buy the same product, but 'that gal' is just that good! It always makes me look brighter and more awake and has a lovely scent that cheers me up. Not sure if I'm just biased, but I also think that this holds my foundation in place better than other primers I've used!

Jun 7, 2013

Love this!

Location: London

I adore this product. I suffer from red patches and my skin is blemish prone. I mix this product with equal amounts of porefessional and apply evenly. The result is incredible. I'm not a professional so cannot say this will work for everyone. However for the first time in six years I went out with no foundation on. There was no need. The results are flawless.

May 13, 2013

chin breakout

Location: HONG KONG

ok not sure what happened. Nothing breaks me out ever ! anyway I wore this over my Clinique Turnaround serum and bang bang bang...tiny erruptions around jaw and chin. Burning and red bumps. I didnt touch it.....or put anything over it. Let it be. after a while it all disappeared. strange Pinkish undertone might cause ashyness to NC40/42 skintones

May 12, 2013

Not sure if it beats porefessional!

Location: Australia

I love that gal, but I also use porefessional and think that gal might not be as good. It's a lot stickier than porefessional and has a nicer scent, but they are fairly on par with each other and I think I get more value for porefessional, they're both great though!

Apr 23, 2013

Works for me

Location: Melbourne VIC, Australia

I have used quite a few primers from Smashbox Photo Finish primer to Yves Saint Laurent (Matt Touch) Oil free primer (and loads of other brands). I found "That Gal" made my skin glow with a subtle but fresh radiance. I really like how my face looks when I wear it with or without a foundation. Don't know about others but it certainly works for me.

Mar 30, 2013

Not for blemishes.

Location: Kent, UK

I can see how this product COULD be amazing, but for someone with pale skin with very red blemished it looks terrible, makes my skin even more red, gives it an oily texture that can rub off makeup easily and i personally thought it gave me more blemished, definitely not worth the price BUT if you do have clear, dry skin i can imagine it works really well.

Mar 10, 2013

fresh face looking

Location: Chelsea, London, UK

This primer gives a really nice natural, un-cakey finish. Its great for every day and really easy to apply. Its masks redness and scars really well before you've even applied foundation or concealer.

Feb 21, 2013

Not bad

Location: Ohio, USA

I just got this and I had to try it out. After one use I'm not sold on the product just yet. I have read and heard reviews that it smelled like strawberries, that wasn't my experience. It wasn't fruity in any way in my opinion. It wasn't a horrible smell but definitely didn't smell like fruit! It is a very sheer product and very slightly tinted pink. I applied it under my foundation with my fingers and I felt like in order to cover my entire face I had to apply a decent amount. I didn't feel that the container was that large and I'm not sure how long it will actually last when you need to use two twists, at least for me, to cover the full face. I didn't notice a drastic change in my appearance but I noticed a slight one. I think I will only purchase the product again if it lasts me for a while. I think at this price that if it doesn't last long I won't repurchase! Not a bad product!

Feb 19, 2013

Gives a lovely glow

Location: London, UK

I use this when I can't be bothered with a full face of makeup - it really brightens up and evens out my skintone, i find it great for brightening the under eye area and just giving myself a dewy, healthy look which is very natural.

Feb 14, 2013

Nothing special

Location: Portland, OR, USA

I don't think it was anything special, didn't last very long.

not bad!

It brightend my appearence slightly,but not majorly. My makeup stayed on for quite a long time, but no longer than if I had used a primer half the price. Probaly won't re-purchase, but I did like it.

Bright and beautiful simplicity

Location: Paris, Texas

This is a lovely little product, but it definitely may not be for everyone. That Gal is a simple primer with a very faint pink undertone to give dull, sleepy skin a little kick of brightness. If you're like me and you have a natural pink undertone, this is great but if you're more yellow or brown, be careful to blend this in so you don't have pink streaks! For me, the product did not add much in the way of brightness or color because I always have a pinkness to my face even if I haven't slept in a week and have the flu but if you're prone to dullness and grayness, this will add a nice little zing to your tired skin. I would recommend this if you're wanting a dewy look. If you're aiming at a matte look, you'll have to do some serious powder work because this primer does go down very dewy and moist. I always use this product on minimum makeup days only - when I use this, I put it down, let it dry, and then apply a tinted moisturizer over it. It's great for a very low maintenance look but I would recommend something more heavy duty for a full makeup look - I recommend giving The POREfessional a try for that. All in all, I use this product a whole lot because it adds smoothness, moisture, and brightness for minimal makeup days. Give it a try, you will love it!

Not amazing value but a lovely product

Location: Undisclosed

I have very sensitive skin yet despite the fragrance, I have no bad reactions. It makes my skin appear brighter and healthier - particularly helpful when ill or hungover - and creates a really nice base for other products, like concealer and foundation. It does run out surprisingly quickly though.

Dec 26, 2012

Beautiful product

Location: Kent, UK

I have got 'confessions of a concealaholic' which I absolutely love. It was the trial size and once it ran out I just had to purchase the full size one of this! It is so lovely and leaves a lovely feel to your skin. It smells of strawberrys and lasts for absolutely ages! I also find that because I am pale, the lovely pink glow in this means I dont need to apply blusher all the time if I am just doing a small amount of makeup. Definately worth investing in...its a great product

Dec 24, 2012

Great for making me look younger!

Location: Akron, OH, USA

I started using it because a sample was given to me as a free gift. I have a round, oily face, so I don't like to use a ton of blush, but certainly as I get older, I like some brightening on my cheekbones to make me look younger. But I can't add anything to my T zone, which is already oily. I put this on the tops of my cheekbones, on the inside corners of my eyes, and brow bones, underneath the rest of my makeup. It just brightens the areas that need it to make my face sparkly in the right places. Its pricy, but a tube will last FOREVER, with the small amount I use on a daily basis.

Dec 22, 2012

great for a fresh-faced glow

Location: Staffordshire, England

I dont wear foundation as my skin is generally clear but i do mix thi with girl meets pearl to create a pretty pinky glow all around the face. It helps hide imperfections and when i've tried it with foundation it really gives good staying power!

complexion brightener which smells delish!

Location: Melbourne VIC, Australia

'that gal' gives my skin a lovely glow and although I am not one for smelly cosmetics and skin care, I love its fragrance. However, using it every day, I go through one every 4-6 weeks! I like it but even for its price, I wish it lasted longer.

This product really brightens up my appearance. And is my...

Location: Undisclosed

This product really brightens up my appearance. And is my favourite stage in my makeup routine! The consistency is really smooth and silky and is a delight to put on your face. The product comes in a really cool bottle, it's fun to twist! The reason that I did not give the product 5 stars was that I feel as though you do not get enough of the product for the money. But I still feel as though it is worth it as it has now become a crucial stage in my makeup routine, as it creates a really smooth surface to put my foundation on! The colour can be quite off putting because light colours can sometimes look weird on medium skin tones, but it looks great, it blends in really well. I'm nc 35 or beige in the hello flawless range, and it does not make me look ghost like which were my initial thoughts when I first tried it

Nov 29, 2012

Received Sample via LBB & Loved It!

Location: Milwaukee, WI, USA

My sample via LBB (Little Black Bag), a very generous one I must say, hooked me forever and I couldn't wait to order it. This must have product is delivered like a roll on deodorant so nothing is wasted. On some days you only need this, a little powder, some eyebrows and off you go. This is truly a must have in your make-up bag. I've got my sister, my nieces and several people at work hooked on this.

Perfect mixer!

Location: New South Wales, Australia

I love mixing That Gal with my liquid foundation, about half/half mix. It gives the loveliest glow! On quieter days when I'm not wearing foundation I mix it with Porefessional to even out and brighten my skin. Perfect!

Nov 26, 2012

Love love love

I don't wear a lot of make up, so this is perfect for me to use instead of foundation - it really does what it says, which is brighten your face and make you look fresh. And it smells lovely too. It's also great underneath eyeshadow as a primer, every time I wear it the eye shadow doesn't smudge or clump at all. Highly recommend, but if you wear a lot of make up don't expect this to cover like a foundation.

Great Primer, doesn't brighten.

Location: Manchester, UK

I was really excited to get this as a free sample because I wanted something to brighten my complexion, that I could wear without foundation if I was just popping out. I found there were good sides and a bad sides to the product. The good sides are that it is easy to use, it smells lovely, and it literally keeps my foundation on ALL day. As in, I can put it on at 6.30am and it's still perfect at 9pm when I take it off. The bad sides are that it does nothing to brighten my complexion and it doesn't feel as nice on your face as Porefessional. It feels heavier, more like a moisturiser. I do feel that it is great as a primer though and will definitely be buying the full size one when my sample runs out!

the perfect primer... always

Location: San Francisco, CA, USA

I have exceptionally oily parts of my face, that do not respond well to most make ups. I either end up with a rash, or clogged pores. This product, never feels greasy, always washes away clean, and leaves my skin looking perfect. With a tiny dap of Erase Paste on that weird spot near my nose and "that gal" I've got a perfectly smooth look without having to use another make up product whatsoever. Benefit...your products are always the best.

Me (17) and my mum (44) both use this product!! We both loooove it! It's so hydrating and silky smooth but not oily! This goes perfect under any concealer/foundation as me and my mum both use different ones. Deffinately will be buying this again! :D

Location: United Kingdom

I have a friend who knows everything about Benefit! (She was the one that told me about it). She recommended 'The POREfessional' primer for me because I was complaining about the size of my pores. We went into debenhams a few days after that and I wanted to buy it, I also wanted a colour match for 'play stick'. The lady removed my makeup and said that my pores were tiny, and that it was my foundation that made it look like I have huge pores! She offered me 'That Gal' because Im quite young, she said it would brighten up my face and make it look natural! After she used it and did my makeup with 'hello flawless oxygen now' as there wasnt a light enough shade of 'play stick' my face looked amazing! Never looked as good before! My face was flawless! Now benefit is the only makeup company I trust! I would definetely recommend this to a friend! My 'huge pores' dissappeared! Thanks so much for this! :)

The best product I use!

Made me oily

Location: Mountain View, CA, USA

I am beginning to think Benefit products just don't work for my skin type or maybe it's my age. Since the Porefessional did not work for me. It was recommended to try That Gal and again my skin became very oily. Sorry Benefit I wanted to love your products but it just does not work for me.

'alright' but not very necessary

Location: Sydney, Australia

I give four stars coz the texture of the product is good, light, moisturizing and easy to apply. And the smell is nice, light strawberry, i think. But I don't see any point of using this product. It is a primer but without SPF. And I don't think it can keep the make-up last longer. Basically, it just brightens the skin a bit, which however, can be totally done by foundation and blush. If you want moisture, why not using the hydrating lotion? So nice product with good design but not really useful.

Brightens my face and mood - lovely scent!

Location: Traverese City, MI

That Gal is a product I don't use all of the time, I actually only use it when I wake up on the wrong side of the bed so to speak. Why? Well, it looks great on it's own, and so when I'm in a rush it's quick. Another great reason is the smell is irresistible! It smells a bit like strawberries and cream. It smooths my pores a bit and just lightens up my face. I can't help but feel a bit better on those wrong side of the bed mornings after using that That Gal!

Just that little extra

That Gal subtly adds a little extra pinky glow to your skin. I use it on my cheeks and as a primer for my eyeshadow and dark circle concealers. A little goes a long, long way and it smells great!

Location: Undisclosed

I give this rating not because of the product itself, but the service and the package. Well, yes, I'm officially writing to complain. This primer I bought seemed used by someone. Or for other reasons, the package was open and the liquid was smeared onto the lid, immediately disappointing me. I hope for better and quality service, BENEFIT could check the product before sending to customers. Very very disappointed!

Jul 24, 2012


Location: Fayetteville, NC

I have tried every high-end primer in the book, but this one beats them all. Despite having very oily skin, this keeps my makeup in place all day long. Although I didn't necessarily buy it for the brightening properties, the first day I wore it, a co-worker told me my skin was "absolutely glowing". I was surprised because my foundation is medium-to-full coverage and I didn't think it would show through. It does, however, create a very subtle brightening effect. Thanks Benefit for yet another fantastic product!

This product was a little bit of a let down for me! i bought it last year before christmas to treat myself and the product only last 2 weeks max. I used the same amount of the produuct as the lady in the shop told me to an it still was used up in no time at all. This product was a waste of money as it only made a slight change to the way my skin looked for the highly expensive price that it comes with. I will never buy this product again as it was just a waste of money!

This product smells lovely and gave a nice smooth base to apply foundation onto but that was about it. I cant say it made my skin look amazing and my makeup last all day because it didnt. For the size and the results i thought it was pricey and will be trying a different primer instead of buying this again.

Best primer on the market!

Location: Charleston, South Carolina

I instantly fell in love with this product the first time I used it. I went from dull to glowing within seconds! I purchased it because a my friend's makeup is always awesome and she uses this product. I apply it under my fave powder foundation and it makes my skin look flawless. This lightweight primer is soft and creamy which allows your makeup to go on smoother as well as last longer. So go ahead...buy it!

Amazing in only 2 seconds

Location: Dumfries, Scotland

I just bought my copy of Glamour and received the free sampler. I suffer with very dark circles under my eyes and the Erase Paste is amazing but I still feel like after a few hours they are beginning to show again. 1 dab of this amazing product and it instantly brightened up my under eye area which helped divert attention from the dark circles. Absolutely amazing! Only given it 4 stars because I haven't used it much but I will definitely be carrying it in my school bag and hand bag until it runs out when I will definitely be buying the full bottle!! :D

"That Gal" is amazing, honestly best thing to put on your face before wearing foundation. Love the brignting effect it leaves my skin glowing. I highly recommend it, I have been buying it for the past 3 years.

Love it!

Location: Australia

I bought That Gal duty-free on a flight to Italy, and throughout my entire time in Italy it was my best friend! I don't wear makeup much at all, and so I used this alone, and found just by itself it made my face look really healthy and dewy. As soon as I noticed how pink it was I was unsure (since I'm snow-pale and I thought I'd end up with a pink face), but lo and behold as soon as you put it on your skin it blends in and 'magically' gives you a gorgeous glow! And, this being Benefit, the smell is nothing short of DIVINE, and the packaging of course.

A staple in your beauty arsenal!

Location: Houston, Texas

This is absolutely a necessary for me when it comes to a full face of makeup. Visually, after applying That Gal, the difference is almost unnoticeable, except that your skin will appear a little more evened out. Don't give up! One you apply your full face, you get amazing staying power, which I haven't found in any other full face primer/brightener. I get easily 12, if not 18 hours out of an application makeup. Additionally, That Gal leaves your skin feeling silky, smooth, and cool. It's easy to use, as it can be applied simply with clean fingers. My preferred method of application, though, is with a foundation brush. You don't need to slather this on thick, either. My only complaint with this product would be the value. It's an alright value, but even just 25% more would make it just right.

Something extra for the 'Light Makeup Brigade'

Location: Uk

I don't wear a lot of makeup and certainly don't like the feel of a foundation, this is ideal for evening out skin tone and creating a base for light makeup. It smells lush, is a glorious rosy pink and puts exactly that on your face. It's perfect when you're looking a bit jaded! I recommend moisturising well beforehand so your skin doesn't suck the moisture from the product, I find when this happens it starts to go bitty and rolls off. I finish off with Get Even powder and it leaves me with a natural, uncaked and flawless look! The only downside is, as someone has mentioned before, the packaging hides the fact that there's very little product to it. A mere 11ml, pour that out into 2 medicine spoons and it really isn't a lot for what it is!

Apr 23, 2012

Makes me look alive when I'm not feeling it!

Location: Birmingham, West Midlands, UK

This primer is the best thing since sliced bread. It was a present but I wouldn't hesitate to buy another - haven't had to so far as it has lasted me over a year with daily use. I use it over my cheeks, forehead and brow bones - it adds radiance without looking artificial. Blends beautifully too! Would definitely recommend.

It smells lovely, it blends easily, and it is smooth! That Gal really does brighten my face no matter what I put on over it. Just remember not to use too much, a little will do the job, and it leaves face silky smooth! My makeup doesn't slip off one bit throughout the day!

Apr 19, 2012

simply gorgeous

Location: cardiff, uk

When you see how pink this looks you might worry that it will look odd on your skin. As soon as you blend in a small amount all over you look radiant. I like to wear this as a primer underneath foundation and powder or everyday on it's own with eye bright in the corners of your eyes. Simple and looks naturally pretty!

Apr 13, 2012

Pleasantly surprised

Location: California, USA

When I saw the pink tone to this, I was worried that it would only cause my face to seem more red. Instead, when I put this over my porefessional and under you rebel, my face had a rosie refreshed glow that lasted the whole day! Just remember, a little goes a long way.

I was so excited with the packaging of this product and enjoying using it while it lasted. I was horrified when i managed to use all the product in less that 2 months! that said it has a lovely smell and lovely to use under make up as it gave me a rosie look however if i had bought this product for myself i would have felt cheated. I realised the packaging actually concealed how little was in the tube.

Mar 26, 2012


Location: UK

Pinks my favourite 'thing'! I think this primer does keep my makeup stay but but I don't really see any brightening affect! I gave this a 5 star because my boyfriend thought I was going crazy & thought I was putting glue on my face & made a joke about it saying that I need glue to make my makeup stay put all day long? LMFAO! So every time I use this product I laugh out loud & think of what he said! But I love the smell of this product & it's so refreshing & I definitely would repurchase this! However I don't use this on a regular basis as I'm so lazy, so when I go to school I don use it but when I go out I would use it. But sometimes I would wear that alone with Porefessional & some eyeliner & mascara without any hello flawless! It all depends on how my skin is that morning :)!!

"Is that it?".

Location: Kent, UK

My hopes were so high for this product as i have a limited budget for make up, this was a big treat. And I really wish i hadn't bothered. It hardly brightened my skin at all, and ran out so quickly. I was surprised as I love the Benefit range, I pinched my moms benefit supply constantly and now have many favorites. But this could have been a lot better. It brightens if you are wearing a very fine layer of foundation with no pressed powder or blusher, but barely. Boo you, That gal, from this Disappointed Gal.

Mar 21, 2012

Wonderful if you don't wear lots of make up!

Location: Essex

I LOVE this product as I never wear foundation and usually just put powder on when I'm going out. This product gives my face a even complexion and minimises all imperfections. I wasn't sure at first as I tried it as a Benefit event but I swear by it now and was so disappointed when it ran out the other day!

I came across "That Gal" when I purchased my "Confessions of a Concealaholic" I am really glad I did! That gal is a primer but I use it as a blush/touch up. I dab a little on my cheeks to give my pale complexion a nice lively look. The smell is also to die for

Super Awesome

Location: California

I was really underwhelmed by That Gal until I really put it to the test. My skin reacts badly to waxing, and I had a big fat ugly breakout on my forehead after getting my eyebrows done (not by Benefit- ill never stray again!) Anyway, I had a terrible breakout and i finally admitted that I would have to go out in public like that. I found myself in the bathroom with my full array of concealers and foundations in front of me. By habit I reached towards my Benefit products, primarily Confessions of a Concealaholic. I decided to go ahead and retry That Gal, because I new I would need some big guns for this breakout. I put That Gal under my concealer and the rest is history. Wow! It is now about six hours later, and my concealers have stood up to rain, Pilates and shopping. They never last this long without budging! Plus, as always, it smells wonderful and application is easy. Love!

Basic must-have product, at least for me

This product disappointed me

Location: London

i'm honestly really surprised at the number of reviews of people saying how much they like this product as i was expecting people to say what I'm about to say now. when i put this product on i just feel incredibly disappointed i purchased something that does not make any difference to my face aside from making it smell nice. i have combination skin, so i have some dry areas around my face, i know this isn't a moisturiser but i used this product before putting my foundation on and my face looks dry. very disappointed. definitely won't be recommending this to anyone nor will i ever purchase this product again.

Mar 2, 2012

An Amazing Primer!

Location: Toronto, ON, Canada

I bought this about a year and a half ago for the first time after having someone working at the counter apply it on me. This is a great product and it really makes your face perfect for applying foundation or even just to reduce redness, I haven't bought it again in a while just because it it pretty pricey (I bought this in New York last time and I live in Canada so there is a price gap that is kind of the tipping point for me) but I have been considering purchasing this again, the only thing stopping me is that there is not a lot of product in the tube. My father actually took it apart to see if it was just not coming out or if there was still a bit hidden somewhere but it was completely gone! I did share this with my mother so I can see why it disappeared so fast! It is a great product if you use it sparingly (perhaps try it with a damp sponge?) and if you are willing to pay for the little amount that you do get it is really a fantastic product. I am definitely considering repurchasing and I would definitely recommend this!

Beautiful color, nice texture, good primer

Location: Undisclosed

There is a lot I love about That Gal. 1) Color: I love how this pinkish hue goes with my olive skin. It doesn't overwhelm or clash with my natural skin tone, but rather gives me a healthy, natural, brighter complexion. I wear it under Hello Flawless powder (in beige), and the coloring works out very nicely. 2) Texture: It is not runny, not oily, nor like a paste. It goes on like a light moisturizer, i.e. it spreads evenly and is easy to control. My skin is neither dry nor oily--somewhere in the middle--and this does not make me affect the quality of my skin. 3) Works well as a primer: Hello Flawless powder is definitely more natural and softer looking when I have That Gal underneath. It also stays on all evening. I don't typically wear makeup *all* day, so I can't say whether it lasts for more than the length of an evening. I think you'd have to do a midday/early-evening touch-up if you wanted to stay made up from morning until night.

Amazing product - I have very dull, greyish skin and usually look like death without foundation - and even sometimes with it! - with this product I didn't NEED foundation, just a bit of Erase Paste and a sweep of Sugarbomb and I was done, brilliant for daytime! Skin tone looked healthy, bright and even. Not sure it did a lot for my pores but that really didn't matter, you don't notice pores when your skin looks this good! A miracle product for me.

Nice texture, great smell

Location: Jakarta, Indonesia

I have grown to like this primer more and more. First off, I love the smell, it's so sweet and refreshing. I like the texture too, easy to apply and blended out. Now as for the brightening effect, I didn't see it as much at first, but I've noticed that the redness on my face seemed to diminished a little after applying this, as if, my face is awaken a little bit. I usually use this whenever I just want to have a lighter make up on that day. It has a pretty good oil control too, at least on me :)

Jan 15, 2012


Location: Belfast, UK

I think this is a really good product, but it it is not right for me. This smells gorgeous and the packaging is so pretty. But when I applied this, it messed up and removed my liquid foundation. However, it works brilliantly on bare skin or powder foundation. Unfortunately, my skin isn't good enough for so little makeup. It gives a nice dewy glow and is completely natural looking. My one complaint is that it does't seem to last very long (as it is designed for all over the face). I instead use 10, which is a bit more noticable, and as a powder does not destroy, but set my makeup.

Too Subtle

Location: Manila, Philippines

I'm not sure about this product. I was surprise because before I bought this product I read first the reviews which has a very positive feedback, to my disappointment this primer is too subtle for my skin tone. I didn't see any difference wearing this and not wearing this under make up at all. But that will not change my love for Benefit, I'll just use this up and try another product...

I was skeptical about this product and decided I would give it a try due to reading some great reviews. I couldn't be happier with my purchase! I wear this product both under my makeup, and by itself. It gives my skin a radiant glow that seems to be coming from within, and makes my face feel so soft. I find that it also smoothes out my face and really adds to a flawless finish! When I wear it under my makeup, my makeup stays on much longer without needing touchups! (and you can still see the radiant glow "That Gal" gives me shining from under the makeup!)

this is amazing. works as a great base FOR EVERYTHING. if you don't have it already, get it now, you will be happy. if you're shopping online at benefit and getting different products, this has to be one of them! and if you're only getting ONE thing, GET THIS! Even if you don't own a lot of makeup/cosmetics, you should own this.

Perfect if it weren't for the fragrance

Location: Massachusetts

I always hesitated to try this primer because I wasn't sure how pink would work on my fair, freckled skin. It does come out of the package looking pink, but once it goes on, it's sheer and light. The color reminds me a little of Erase Paste, actually. It doesn't make me look any more pink, but it does give my skin a very slight, dewy, fresh look (that's the brightening part). The only thing that I don't love about this product is that it has a very strong fragrance. I thought it would dissipate quickly, but I kept catching whiffs of it throughout the day. It's not a smell I find pleasant, so I won't repurchase, which is too bad, because otherwise it's a great product.

i tried out this product in my local benefit counter , can't believe the amazing effect on the back of my hand after applying it , it creates a darling complexion and i bought it. I have combination skin , and i have tried out other premiers , some are too oily and some are too dry , "That gal" is perfect for my skin and it has this awesome scent and i'm hooked with it.i have dark skin , but it gives me a natural pink complexion , unlike other premiers that make me look fair but pale. The only problem is it's a lil' too pricy.I am still using my first bottle , but it will be a problem to get my next because of its expensive price , 11ml for the price is pretty expensive , But it's worth it , i'll recommend this product to all my friends and start saving some money to get my next bottle.

Great, but not out of the ordinary.

Location: Undisclosed

One of the first makeup items I bought was a primer, so I am used to having my makeup last for a while. This primer has very cute packaging, and it smells like sweets. My makeup stayed on as long as I was expecting, and I really have no major issues with this product. My only slight complaint is that I can never get the right amount of product out of the container. One turn of the bottom is not enough liquid and two turns is too much. Other than that, this primer preformed well and I do recommend it.

I got this product about a month ago and I honestly do not know what I did before this. It is light weight and super effortless. Has enough coverage that you can wear it alone if you please. Great for evening out your skin tone.

I'm not sure about this primer. It's very lovely and it smells delicious, but the effect is quite subtle. It's a bit expensive for 11ml of product. I would go for a tinted moisturiser insted to brighten my skin.

Location: Burnet, TX

I just adore this lightweight babypink primer. It goes on beautifully and evenly, and the slight smell is divine. It isn't heavy, but it does what it should and doesn't budge. The only primer I use, after trying MANY.

Smells sweet & looks sexy

Location: Sydney,Australia

I love That Gal. It is super easy to use and has multiple uses. First and formost as a primer, to smooth out the skin and even the tone. Secondly I love to mix That gal with a heavier foundation to sheer it down. Thirdly, if I am feeling a little 'afternoon flat' a dab of this mixed between my hands and patted onto my face lights me up instantly! Thanks Benefit

Satisfactory, But Not Too Impressive

Location: Lincoln, NE

I love my other brightening products by Benefit Cosmetics like "Girl Meets Pearl" and "High Beam" so I thought I'd give this a try. Using it as a primer, I wasn't terribly impressed with the results. It might make skin appear smoother, but it definitely doesn't make skin smoother. It doesn't smooth over spots that are a little dry or help control spots that are oily. I also found its texture to be difficult to blend, which is really not good for a primer. As for the brightening effects, they are very subtle: too subtle, in fact, to make any difference in how foundation looks when applied over this primer. So since it doesn't improve skin's texture much and doesn't brighten under foundation, I don't use this as a primer at all. However, since the brightening is so subtle, this product is good to use on days when I don't wear makeup. Many complexion brightening products look much too shiny when applied to my T-zone and chin. but this one is perfect and not too over-the-top. The pinkish color also looks nice on my very fair complexion. So on days when I don't wear makeup, I like to use this product on my T-zone and chin and then "Girl Meets Pearl" on my cheeks and eyelids for a natural-looking glow. But since this primer falls far short of doing what it claims, I doubt I'll buy it again.

It gives you a brighter more natural complexion and is also usefull when you dont want to (or dont have time to) put on a full face of makeup. It smells great to and feels very light on the skin. Perfect if you have sensetive skin or don't like the feel of makeup on your face.

I rated this primer "pretty perfect", but in fact it's absolutely perfect! Not only do I always get compliments on the natural pink glow it gives to my cheekbones and rosey delicious scent, but it's so light on my skin that I feel refreshed everytime I use it. Every girl should use this primer if they want their face to look flawless with or without makeup!

happy days start with 'that gal'

Location: San Diego, CA

So I know it's going to be a bummer of a day when I go to twist the bottom of my 'That Gal' and I realize that I've run out. I don't know exactly what it is about this stuff, something about the light strawberry scent, and the tingle and freshness it gives my face. I use it in the am after moisturizing, and sometimes towards the end of the day to freshen up for a second wave. I love the way this feels, and the radiance it delivers. This is an ESSENTIAL.

Big Fat Flop

Location: Yorkshire

OK so the only good thing about this is its smell. Other than that I do not enjoy it at all. I think it feels heavy and on the few occasions I have tried to have another go with it I seem to break out. Probably the worst benefit product I have ever used. Oh and to add insult to injury you seem to need allot for the desired effect and the reason I love Benefit normally is because it lasts for so long.

Definitely part of my make up routine. It brightens my otherwise dull skin, especially when I did not get enough sleep. I use it more often on it's own with one of the box o' powders. It's very light on the skin and the effect is instant. So many times I have recommended this product to friends and family and they are amazed with the result every time they try it.

one place all day

Location: SLC, UT

No other primer or setter has given me the permance in my makeup like "that gal" has. I put in on under my makeup in the morning and my makeup stays on all day long- through all of the blood, sweat, and tears :) If you are willing to spend $30ish on a primer with complexion benefits (I also use it by itself, skin brightener) I would put my money towards "that gal."

Great for those "blah" skin days!

Location: Virginia Beach, VA

I purchased this primer as it was part of a Benefit gift set, and I was at first reluctant and unsure as to how and where to use it. I had never used a tinted primer before, and I was concerned that the pearly pink sheen might make my skin look more oily or shiny. I have since found that this is not the case! Especially on my tired or "blah" skin days, it makes my skin look and feel so much more radiant when I use it under makeup. On days when I don't feel like wearing makeup but wind up having to venturing out in public, I apply it to my bare skin as a quick fix so I don't look too haggard!

Prime Example

Location: Chicago

I really love the idea of this primer. I'm not sure I would wear this by itself, as I am older with blotchy skin. I have fair skin on the cool side and this gives my skin tone a bit of a lift. I used it under my regular base and it helps make my skin look fresh. I also use the dandelion face powder to mat and add to that all over glow. My only complaint would be that it could go on a bit smoother and act more traction-less like some other primers. But overall, I love the glow I get.

Feb 16, 2011

Toning primer

Location: San Jose

I love the packaging, I love the smell, I love the colour and I really really really love the way my face feels when I put it on. Other than that, I have very fair skin and was a touch worried that it would make me look all pink and piggish but I just sort of gleam which is pleasant. My foundation also seems to last and last and last nowadays seeing as I hardly have to put any on and what I do apply seems to spread a lot easier and further.

I was hesitant to buy this, since i've had bad experience with pink primers{a weird tint}, but this sinks in and gives anywhere you put it a nice, healthy, radient glow. Use this for your cheeks, and the POREfessional for hiding pores on the forehead and nose, and your covered! tip- mix that gal with high beam... It's GORGEOUS!

amazing product.

Location: Sugar Land, TX

I love this product more than words can describe! I bought it over the summer and it has not run out yet. You don't need to use a lot, I find that a few clicks (when the product JUST starts to come out of the dispenser) will do the trick and you can use half of it on both sides of your face and then do an extra click for the top and bottom. I don't know, I found that it was easy to keep it from running out, so I wouldn't let that stop you from buying it. As far as the product itself, I love it. It's great as a primer because it truly does keep your makeup on longer, AND under foundation it creates a beautiful, healthy glow. It makes your complexion look absolutely amazing and perfect, and you will be amazed at what it can do.

I look perfect in all last New Year's Eve pictures thanks to That Gal! It could certainly be oil free, but my trick is not to apply it all over the face.

A great product but it's on the small size

Location: England

This has made a great little addition to my makeup bag and will do for years to come. The light silky smooth pink primer helps creat a lovely flushed natural look and can be used for everyday use or on a night out. It's easy to use because of it's twisty bottom and you don't need to use alot. I do recommend using it with a foundation though as on ita own it does not give the same effect as it does mixed. The only down fall I give it is that there isn't alot in there for the price and may run out fast depending on how much you use it. Other than that though it is definitely worth trying out, you will be surprised with the results

Great and pink

Location: va

I bought this last year and I used on christmas at first I felt flawless and smooth, which was good. The only problem was I don't wear foundation so it made me look pink/pale. I know most people would cover this over with foundation or powder but since I like the naked feel to it so it was bad for me. Overall I think next time I'll just add some bronzer to my face to create some color on my face :].

Definitely made me feel I was 'That Gal'!

Location: West Midlands, England

I bought this product mostly because- it looked amazing and felt almost like a moisturiser when I tried it on at the BeneFit counter. I wanted my complexion to look a little less dull and a little more darling... And this primer claimed it would. So the next day, people were saying my skin looked really nice. From then on I've used it nearly every day. It's silky and smooth as a pearl, gives my skin an almost luminous feel and, as I said above, feels just like applying moisturiser. It's a great way to give your look a lift, either on its own or under or over make up. A definite must, well worth the money!

Nov 20, 2010

Location: Portugal

I love this primer. The smell by it self already makes me feel good, fresh and clean. Love it. Smells like raspberries. It blends very easily and also keeps make up in place all day. My skin is oily and I have no problem with this primer. I also think that it is great value because it lasts and because of the packaging you won't waste any product like many that sometimes you pay for something that you may think that is great value because it has lots of product but in the end half stays in the packaging. So overall i really recommend this product. Great smell, feels awesome, brightens up your face, leaves your skin very smooth, keeps your make-up in place and the packaging is great and handy!

"That Gal" primer really makes the make up go on smoother, and also gives the skin a more flawless look. I have really sensitive skin and to my surprise, it actually does not give me any allergic reactions. The other benefit of using this is that my pores don't get clogged with make up any more, reducing black heads and impurities in my skin.

Good, perhaps not worth the price.

Location: lexington, VA

I got this product in a value set, and I like it a lot. I'm not sure I would buy it full price, but it's a good product and I think it works really well. I am buying makeup on a college student's budget though, so if you have that kind of money to spend on a primer, go for it. I especially liked this because my skin has pink undertones and it looked really good because of that.

Nov 17, 2010

fantastic base/primer

Location: Washington, DC

This product is a fantastic base/primer to prep your face for the rest of your makeup. I use it all over my face and on my eyelids - it helps eye shadow stay put and not crease. The scent is a little strong (kind of grapefruit-y) which I don't love, but it's bearable, especially considering how well the product works.

Nov 17, 2010

Location: New Canaan CT

I use this before my airbrush tan and applying make up. Really prepares skin for whatever treatment/ makeup you need.

Nov 17, 2010

A definite must have for your collection!

Location: Meridian, MS

I'm always skeptical when it comes to items that say they can be worn alone, under, or OVER makeup but this item does all it promises! Creamy texture that works even when using a very small dab. I use it for extra coverup or as primer when I want the air brushed look. It lasts all day and seems to help even out my skin tone on those cold - make your cheeks pink - kind of days. I have some redness in my skin anyway so this product is wonderful!

Nov 17, 2010

Go from tired to wired!

Location: Alamogordo, NM

It was a few years ago that I first tried That Gal at a department store in London. One of the sales assistants was offering to do make-up, so my friend and I sat down. It had been a very long day of shopping but when the sales assistant had put That Gal on half my face I was absolutely astonished by the difference! One half of my face looked like I was awake and brimming with energy, while the half without That Gal on looked way overtired. I bought the product on the spot and have loved it ever since!

Nov 17, 2010


Location: Austin, TX

I have pretty nice skin so this is my go to product instead of foundation. It gives me a nice awake glow and is so light and great for my skin. It's versatile and makes a great highlighter.

what doesn't this stuff do??

Location: Edmonton, AB, CANADA

This stuff is great, I can put it on parts of my face that need a little more pink so that I don't look as tired as I am. I also put it anywhere I need to use concealer because it makes the concealer go on smoother and stay on longer. It seems to make eye and cheek colour last longer too. Best of all, I don't have to use much product to make it work! The one downside: if I use it alone, around and under my eyes, it creases wherever it can. :\

My everyday primer

Location: South Carolina, SC

This primer is great for those who wants a brighter looking skin. It does brighten your skin tone and makes my skin look healthy and less tired. I apply this primer everyday and I don't think I can live without this primer. It also smells really good.

Location: Chicago, Il

I have a medical condition that cause rashes on my face. I've tried many products in the past, but they never covered my rash like I wanted or they would leave my skin so dry and would cause me pain. After being introduced to "that gal", I was instantly hooked. It covers and hides the redness and bumps and leaves my face perfectly flawless. I love it.

Love it!

Location: san francisco, ca

I have very fair skin and this primer adds just enough of a hint of radiance under my foundation to give me that perfect glow. Smoothes on easily, doesn't feel heavy or greasy. Applicator is a little strange but I just use fingers or a liquid foundation brush to apply.

Location: Undisclosed

This product brightens up the face, evens complexion tone, and adds a bit of color to the skin. Sometimes, if I'm in a rush or I don't want to wear a lot of make up, I'll use just this primer and instantly it makes a big difference without the heaviness of wearing foundation and concealers. Great product! And I like the scent because it's not too perfumey like certain primers and foundations.

Warms up my very pale skin

Location: Midwest

As I've gotten older, my skin just seems to have lost all natural color. That was the original reason for trying this product, but now I am sold on the benefits (pun intended!) of primer. This primer has restored some color, but I also love the pore reducing effect, the ease of applying foundation, and using less foundation overall. This comes in a fun little applicator but the downside is that you have no idea how much product remains - the applicator just...stops. I have also tried the Smashbox peach colored primer. I like the super smooth, slicker feel of Smashbox but it doesn't give me as much glow. When comparing the volume of product in each container the Smashbox works out to be quite a bit less expensive but I think I'll stick with That Gal for the color.

Really Makes a Difference

Location: Cahuilla, CA

This is something that is sorely missed when I don't use it. It makes any foundation, liquid or powder, go on smoother and it's great for my oily skin. It doesn't make my face feel greasy or clogged.

quick perk-up

Location: Brooklyn, NY

That gal is the best! It has a wonderful (and not too strong) smell, and it's amazing how much of a difference it makes to my complexion. It gives you a bit of a glow, but without any work and without making you look obviously made up. Very natural and pretty.

simply a must

Location: Louisville, KY

I absolutely love this product and cannot go without. Once I smooth this baby over my skin, it looks and feels fabulous and fresh with or without foundation! The best part is when I layer "That Gal" over my cream foundation it does not leave any tiger streaks on my face and evens out my foundation as well.

Dewy Fresh

Location: Boston, MA

Do you want your face to look dewy fresh and smell like cotton candy (like you just woke up from the best nap of your life while laying in a hammock on a Caribbean island). Well this is it. I received a free sample from Benefit when I ordered something else from them and was skeptical of it's performance. I tried it once and couldn't stop looking in the mirror all night to see if my face was still glowing. The only negative is I wouldn't recommend using it under your foundation in the summer. It's better to use in colder months when your skin isn't as naturally shimmery.

Silky, sweet, and lovely

Location: Atlanta, GA

In the past I never liked primers, but for the past two years I have been a huge fan of That Gal. I'm hooked on it. It has such a sweet, subtle scent and makes my skin so silky and smooth. It is PERFECT when worn with my mineral foundation. Also, mixing it with You Rebel or liquid foundation will give you a beautiful glow. Furthermore, you can wear it alone for a nice little shine on days when you go without makeup. I love this!

Fantastic--even for my oily skin

Location: Salem, OR

I wasn't sure I'd be able to use this product because I have oily skin that is pretty sensitive to new products, but I was so pleasantly surprised! That Gal didn't make my skin feel oily, and it added a subtle but gorgeous glow to my skin. I wear it under and sometimes over my foundation

This product is perfect under my make up. I have a pretty even skin tone but this just makes everything that much clearer. I love this product and when I do my friends make up I use this and everyone loves it!

makes me feel fresh, clean and cute

Location: Brussels, Belgium

A great product when you're dashing out the door and don't have time for the full facial routine. The smell and texture makes you feel fresh and cute all day. It does get a little bid too greasy on my oily skin but I'm happy with the product. Although, I would not label it as a primer. A primer is supposed to help with the process of applying your make up but i don't feel like it makes my Boing slide on. So no as a primer, great as a general face balm.

Great primer...smells amazing!

Location: England

I've been using "That gal" for a while now and really like it. I put it on under my foundation and concealer. I find my foundation is still on hours later and hasn't gone cakey either. Like a lot of my other Benefit products, it smells amazing too. I don't find much of a colour change in my face after I've applied it but that doesnt bother me. Overall I love this product and will continue to use it!

Location: queen creek, AZ

this is by far the best primer out there...the moment you put it on your face it feels so fresh and smooth. whether you wear it alone or under your makeup it is a must-have staple. it's a perfect go-to item when you're about to run out the door and have no make-up on, but want to look refreshed and natural. my heart broke when i reached the last 'clicks' on my tube...order two because you will not want to be without this product! i have problem skin and never got complemented on my skin until i started using this primer. it's an instant esteem boost! i tell everyone i know about this primer. the way it smells, feels, even the adorable packaging--i am hooked for life!

Location: Virginia

I sampled "that gal" primer for a few weeks and noticed that in the summer heat my foundation lasted longer than it would have lasted without a primer. I concentrate the primer on areas where my foundation tends to become dull throughout the day, which are my cheeks, forehead, around my nose, and my chin. The brightening effect also prevents these areas from becoming dull. Personally the only downside to this product is the smell. I would describe it as a candy-like, bubble gum, sickeningly sweet smell. I would much prefer a scentless primer.

I'm a redhead with slightly blotchy skin, and was worried that a pink-tinted primer would make me look, well, pink! Honey, let me tell ya - this stuff makes me look FANTASTIC!!! My skin looks smooth and even-toned. Plus, it smells yummy.

Location: Kansas City

I really truly love this product. Quick & easy it applies lightly and provides a nice soft pink (healthy not fake) glow and brightens your skin. I love it and use it all the time, even when I take time to put on foundation too. Plus it's great for your skin; has antioxidants and no fillers. Wonderful. I would recommend to anyone at any age! I used on my special night out for my birthday and when my fiance seen my makeup he said I looked so beautiful and glowing! Now that's the response I was looking for and it showed, this is my go-to product! I love benefit!

This is another product I had to try to fully appreciate. I use it as a primer for sure. But now with POREfessional out, I mix You Rebel and That Gal together to get complexion perfection on those summer days. Talk about luminous!! That Gal is great solo for a "no make-up" look on those busy mornings too! And you can pat it on thoughout the day for a perk-me-up. I love a midday make-up break!!

Great for on the go, smooth and silky, cute colour, scent and package, but it truly is a crime paying such a large price for a tiny amount. Quality or not, quantity does count for customers who are the midst of a GFC! Step it up Benefit, many ladies would love this but have probably kept away b/c or price reviews!

Location: Sugar Land

I love how this feels on my skin and I love how it smells, but I feel like there's not much of a difference when I use it. I notice a difference if I use it over my makeup, but if I use it under, I feel like nothing changes whatsoever. Over makeup, it gives my skin a nice silky pink sheen which is a good slight blush, but I guess it just depends on the person. Will I buy it again, I'm still not sure. It's a bit expensive for being just so-so.

That Gal didn't live up to my expectations, but I still like to use it occasionally. The smell is too sweet for me, and with my fair, cool-toned skin, I don't really need any pink added, but it's nice when mixed with tinted moisturizer, for a really light and dewy look.
