It contains cornstarch and wax, ingredients to avoid if you're acne prone. Cornstarch is food for acne bacteria and wax will clog your pores.

I've used this product before and I've never broken out, but when I used Biore, i noticed I had white heads on my forehead when I barely had any before. Every skin type is different. You have to test it out and just use this product for 2 weeks and see if the same this happens on your skin. Try to use Biore before you use this product and then two weeks after. I stopped using it after that.

I have combo skin. I had used Dr.Feelgood a few years back. The first month that I used it, it made my skin look flawless. However, after I used up the product and purchased a new one I majorly broke out. I don't know why that happened, but it did. I would still absolutely recommend this product though I mean it probably depends on your skin. If you find that you're also breaking out fyi, I'm currently using Smashbox's primer in green to minimize redness and blotches.

answer 5
products are different for everyone's skin. Generally, when trying something new your skin needs an adjustment period that is anywhere from 2 to 4 weeks. if you continue to have trouble after that period stop the use of the product.

Dr. Feelgood is actually perfect for oily/acne-prone skin types though because it mattifies and stops oil in its tracks. if you have an oily t-zone this could actually help prevent break-outs. You should always listen to your own skin though- and remember a little goes a long way with this- if you do break out you might be using too much.

I love this product but it made me breakout. I have tried it on several different occasions and used it for several weeks but I breakout in places that I never break out! I am finally giving up with it, I cannot take any more spots!!

answer 7
Some products make others break out and others do not. Keep in mind that when you try a NEW face wash, and/or makeup and/or mositurizer (or anything for your face) your skin is trying to get usto the NEW ingredients and you could suffer from minor breakouts for a while. But if the product helps otherwise for you then STICK IT OUT and wash that pretty face really well BEFORE bedtime and use benzoyl peroxide to banish dirt or impurties to PREVENT blackheads. Good luck!!

Please, avoid using this if you have acne prone skin. There are so many products that work wonders besides this. Start with a really effective moisturizer that addresses your acne or combination/oily skin. I've tried Murad, Peter Thomas Roth also has a great line as well. And let your skin breathe, use lightweight primers, Laura Mercier oil-free is a good one. The Bare Essentuals line Prime Time works great too. It contains silica which is a natural mineral that absorbs and controls shine.

No, I have slightly acne prone skin and Dr. Feelgood never gave me breakouts. It is a mattifying balm so I would think it would help reduce the oiliness of your skin. Just be sure to change the application sponge once and awhile and you should be fine.

Question
Does it flake/roll into small pieces when you apply it?
1. When I apply this product with either fingers or w/ the sponge, I don't get a lot of product out...how much product do you use?

2. If I run over a place on my face that already has product, it seems to bead/flake/roll into small pieces...any ideas of how to avoid this or what I'm doing wrong?

Thanks in advance for any advice!!!

Yes it will roll into balls and flake off if you're not completely moisturized. So pile on the face lotion, give it a couple minutes to soak in and then you shouldn't have that problem.

I do not use it all over my face - just as spot treatment. I have found that if you use too much it will turn into small clumps. I use my finger tip and make sure that the product is warmed up. Once you put it on smoothly, leave it alone - just like anything else.

I've found that I only need a TINY amount....basically swipe the sponge over the stuff once, and that can do your forehead or both cheeks, then one more swipe for my nose. If it's beading up you're using too much.

I use it under. I apply it, then put on my eyeliner while it sets and dries completely, then apply my foundation or face powder. It mattifies the heck out of your face and leaves it super smooth, so it's the perfect canvas for foundation.

I've used this over and under make up and alone. It leaves skin with a velvety look with nothing. I've also used this both under and over tinted primer and tinted moisturizer. This seems to be one of those products that no matter how you use it, it's going to look great. I love it.

It's funny that everyone has a different experience with this. I find that if i apply it under foundation, the foundation wont go on evenly. However, blotted over foundation (note blotted, not spread) and under powder, it works GREAT. It's also great to blot over powder on your shiny areas. Used with benefit powder, it keeps my oily skin looking nice and my make up in place all day (without emphasizing my fine lines)....amazing stuff.

The directions say you can apply it under or over foundation, but if you apply it over foundation, it rubs off your makeup so I'd recommend wearing it under foundation.

You can use this product under or over foundation powder. It will reduce the appearance of pores and fine lines, and will give you a smooth, silky, matte complexion. It’s also great for touch-ups throughout the day to reduce the appearance of shine.

i was told you can apply it either under or over your makeup. though, i've noticed applying it over your makeup just turns into a mess. if you're going to use it at all (it didn't work for me) it's best to use it alone or under your makeup.

Absolutely! I can truly vouch for this. Use it beneath your foundation or powder, if you use it. I use Perfekt's Skin Gel over it for a lightweight, smooth finish. I DON'T use any powders on my nose, as that's where my pores are a problem and powder will just undo the good that Dr. Feelgood has done. For your best, tiny-pore look, go for healthy and smooth, rather than dry-as-powder.

I think this seems to fill in any imperfections. Depending on the size of the pores, it might fill them in totally, or perhaps just reduce them. It seems to make my skill look velvety soft, almost like baby skin. I love this product.

I'm not sure if it is non-comedogenic or not, but I have not had any issues with it and I have sensitive skin. On the one hand it conceals your pores, which may not be the best thing if you have recurring acne. On the other hand, since it does matt the skin, I will assume there are no oily clogging ingredients that would contribute to break outs. As with any product, I think the results may vary from person to person.

It's made to fill in imperfections. A scar is raised, so I can't see how it would help. Erase Paste is really good at covering things up, so you might want to try that, or try Lemon-Aid which covers up anything that has a reddish tint. Try it out at your Sephora store first.

This product can be used over or under makeup or alone. It seems to perfect the complexion. I've used it with primer, by itself, mixed with primer, mixed with tinted moisturizer, under primer, over it - it's fun to fool around with it and see what works best. It also seems to act like a magnet for powders, helping them achieve a perfect application. I love this...(It lasts a very long time, too).

Not only does this give your skin a dewy-matte look it helps reduce your pores and fine lines. I love it so much because my skin feels so soft and smooth and really makes my skin healthier after using this for a while. I usually wear this with make-up but when i had a break out one day i just wore this and my skin honestly looked good still. The pores on my face were less noticeable and also my t-zone was not oily or shiney looking at all! Dr. Feelgood does what is says.

Some people were writing that this is a primer. No, actually, it's not. It is a mattifying face balm that takes away the look of oily skin and is supposed to make skin seem smoother. (I tried this and didn't like it. I recommend Dr. Brandt's Pore Effect.)

That's EXACTLY why I bought this. I have lines on my forehead and make-up only accentuates my flaws! Dr. Feelgood is so great that I want to kiss him on the lips ; ) for making such a great product. I do not wear foundation or powder over the top of Dr. Feelgood though, only blush and it appears to create somewhat of a primer or barrier between my skin and blush making it last longer and applying more even without the need to blend afterwards.
