      Worked for a few days

      By kzlong

      from San Diego, CA

      Comments about Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional Agent Zero Shine:

      I have extremely oily skin. After an hour of putting on makeup, the oil bursts through and I'm shiny again (yes, it's disgusting). This worked for about a week - I could go 4-5 hours without getting shiny, but then it stopped working and my skin went back to normal shininess after about an hour. The price is way too steep for this to only be a temporary fix.

                        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.

                        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.
