      Comments about Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional Agent Zero Shine:

      I love this product. I have very sensitive skin which is oily and acne prone along with large pores. I use this paired with the porefessional primer and my foundation. Immediately controls shine and eliminates the slick feeling of my skin leaving it silky soft. Doesn't cake up or settle into my pores. Long lasting as I only applied it in the morning then light touch up after getting off work. Convenient packaging. Worth every penny.

      Comments about Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional Agent Zero Shine:

      It helps my foundation stay shine free. It is rather small for the price, but I also love how easy it is to throw in my purse to use on the go in case shine does appear.

          I bought it to control the shine, it was recommended to me by an employee to be "the best" shine control.. it was a waste of $40 and you get such a little amount it's not worth it. Drugs store powder did better, I was highly disappointed.

              I needed a good setting powder and the brow girl suggested this! It doesn't cake up in the crease of my nose or any other lines. It's great! I have super oily skin, big nose pores, and Rosacea. This powder has great coverage and lasts all day.

                    A:

                    The POREfessional Agent Zero Shine's primary purpose is a mattifying and pore minimizing sheer powder for all over application, while The POREfessional (Item #: 2219868) serves primarily as a pore minimizing treatment balm to apply and blend wherever enlarged pores are apparent. They work great together for a flawless, poreless effect. We recommend testing both products at your nearest ULTA store:

                    Benefit does not test for or claim that their products are hypo-allergenic (least likely to cause an allergic reaction) or non-comedogenic (does not cause pimples & blackheads).

                    This product instantly minimizes shine and helps smooth the look of pores. For best results, first apply Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional Pro Balm primer (Item #: 2219868) to the T-zone, then sweep on Agent Zero Shine for a flawless, mattified complexion. This product's built-in brush dispenser makes touch-ups a breeze if shine returns.
