BeneFit Dr Feelgood

I am quite a big fan of BeneFit make-up, I discovered it a few years ago when in Selfridge's with some friends and I have stuck with it ever since.  Quite a lot of my favourite items of make-up come from BeneFit and one of my all time favourite products is Dr Feelgood.


BeneFit Dr Feelgood
Dr Feelgood is a light balm, which is blended with vitamin C which when applied fills in fine lines and pores to even out your complexion or as BeneFit state “This is a new idea for smooth, silky, matte skin. It's Dr. Feelgood - our complexion miracle worker! This colourless  weightless balm goes on bare skin or glides over make-up to reduce the appearance of fine lines and pores while soaking up excess oil. Enriched with Vitamins A, C and E, Dr. Feelgood is just what the doctor ordered for beautiful, healthy skin!”.  Over the years a lot of people have written about this product and it has received mixed reviews, it seems people either love it or hate it and there are not many people who shrug their shoulders and go “Meh, it’s alright”.

The reason why I like it so much are quite simple.  I like the packaging  Dr Feelgood has an outer packaging which consists of a box which is a mixture of dark greens and the picture on the front of the man and the woman kissing, also features on the tin inside.  The tin inside contains 24g Net wt 0.85 and although this doesn't sound very much, my tin has lasted me just over two years and there is probably another 3 or 4 months worth of usage left and I do use this balm every other day at least.  It also helps to control your T-Zones, so you don’t have that greasy look half way through the day, if you do then you can just dab on a bit of Dr Feelgood to sort it out for you and finally it can be applied as a base for foundation and other make-up or it can be used once make-up has been applied or it can simply be used alone and it gives a lasting velvety feel which makes your skin feel soft and smooth. Finally, it is easy to use. Once this balm is applied it is amazing, your face is really soft after it has been applied and it smells kind of lemony although on the tin it does say it is odourless and it is also colourless, despite being a solid in the tin.

So when it comes to using, you simply pat and smooth Benefit Dr. Feelgood Velvety Complexion Balm over make-up with its accompanying sponge, to do that you simply need to wipe the sponge around the tin to get the balm and apply to your face, or, simply wear it alone and repeat the actions mentioned.  The sponge which accompanies this product is washable and I tend to wash mine using hot water from the sink and then leave it to dry for an hour or so.  You can also use your fingers to apply.


I primarily use this balm both as a base for foundation and on its own, depending how the mood takes me and I find that make-up lasts longer throughout the day using Dr Feelgood. The cost is £21.50 or thereabouts and although it does sound pricey, I can assure you that it does last a long time as I mentioned. I would be totally lost without Dr Feelgood, it is a regular feature in my make-up case and it goes with me wherever I am in the country or the world because it is so versatile and I tend to switch between this and Pore Professional at the minute.

Benefit products are available in places like Boots and Selfridges and can also be bought online.

  2. I love Dr Feelgood, both the product and the tin. It's a great mattifier. I apply it with my fingers if it's going above makeup, as the sponge tends to take away the makeup. How do you store yours in winter? Once, the product almost froze/wax-ified in cold weather and I had to put the tin in warm water.

  9. This product looks really neat, and I totally want to try it out! I love Benefit's face products, it's just a bummer they're so expensive. But I'll definitely be setting money aside for this one.

  10. Sounds interesting! I can see the point as a makeup base but I cant imagine it over make up for some reason, does it not make it look greasy??

    I'd like to try it, but me and Benefit aren't on great terms at the moment lol
