        Comments about Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional Agent Zero Shine:

        I was so skeptical about this product (I love porefessional primer but have been hit/miss with many other products from benefit. I have very dry skin but my nose is very oily with huge pores. Therefore, I bought this just for my nose. Every time I use it, I get so impressed and I'm shocked at how great it works for me. It completely fills in my pores and maintains the oil on my nose all day. I also love the packaging and how the top is used to pour the powder in and the brush comes out the bottom. This is a genius product and it was so worth it for me.

                  Comments about Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional Agent Zero Shine:

                  I really love this powder! I have had a hard time finding products that help tame the shine in my t-zone area and keep that matte look throughout the day! With my old stuff I was reapplying 3-4 times a day to keep the shine down on my nose, etc. With this, I am only having to reapply once a day!
                  The only thing that keeps it from having 5 stars is the built in brush and having to pour out the powder with each use. The built in brush is really tiny so it makes it more difficult to get even coverage. Pouring out the powder each time is kind of a pain and tends to make a mess.

                        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). If you have a specific allergy, please contact your physician to determine if a product is suitable for your skin.
