Pros

Comments about Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional Agent Zero Shine:

I live in the south with a lot of humidity and have a very oily T-zone. This product looks great when you first put it on, but it did not prevent that oily buildup during the day. Not worth the expense.

    Comments about Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional Agent Zero Shine:

    I use this product as a dusting powder to set my make up. When I have a 12+ hour day I need to reapply after about 8 hours but it does a great job of keeping the shine off my face. I use this everyday and so does my daughter. It leaves a nice finish that isn't cakey, it feels natural and definitely helps with the shiny T-zone.

    Comments about Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional Agent Zero Shine:

    I have very oily skin and it does keepy skin matte and believe me when I say my face turns into an oily mess. But it caused me a horrible horrible breakout. I don't have major acne problems I get small bumps here and there. But this caused one of the worst breakouts I've ever had.

      Comments about Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional Agent Zero Shine:

      I naturally have VERY oily skin and have been looking EVERYWHERE for a product that did not make me break out or make my face look cakey. This product works like magic, yes you may have to touch up but other than that it is amazing. Can't leave the house without it.

        Comments about Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional Agent Zero Shine:

        okay, people who say this is messy are not using the porduct correcty. first, the product is meant to be poured into a container, like the cap that comes with it. then you swirl your brush into the container, coating the brush evenly as you swirl. then you swipe it on your face. the brush that comes with it sucks, invest in a good stippling brush. this product looks the best when you stipple it on rather than brushing it. it's a great product, that I can vouch for. How you apply it, though, is very important.

                A:

                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.

              My face is super oily and after about less than 2 hours my face is so shiny! I use nyx shine free and maybelliene baby skin to control shine that doesn't even work very well. Right now I use the maybelliene fit me concealor all over, would this product control shine all day or what is one that would?

                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.
