Comments about Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional Agent Zero Shine:

I really like the product and will buy it again. The only down fall I see, I feel like I have to put a lot on and reapply at least twice a day. Could just be my excess oily skin, but it's kinda expensive and I don't want to use much of it.

              Love this stuff! Always gets thrown in my purse for days out or when traveling out of town. I apply it after I finish my makeup and usually don't have to reapply for the most part of the day. It's a nice way to touch up/freshen up my makeup before going somewhere new. Keeps my face looking matte and minimizes the look of my pores. I've already recommended it to a friend! After using it once she pick it up for herself LOL

                                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.

                                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.
