    Comments about Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional Agent Zero Shine:

    I have very oily skin and have tried everything in the world to stop it. I saw this last sat and thought what the heck, I havnt tried this. This product is amazing, it truly works. I put it on before my foundation which is Tarte liquid matte finish and I have NO shiny skin, no oil to pat off all day. Even when I'm just sitting at home with no make up on I will just run a little over my face to stop the oil and I'm good till the next day. Wish I had seen this yrs ago.

    Comments about Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional Agent Zero Shine:

    This stuff is truly amazing. My face starts getting oily about 30 minutes after I apply my makeup and I have to blot all day long. NOT WITH THIS. No shine. Major oil control for most of the day. I can hardly see my pores. And it feels so soft! Can I buy this in bulk?!?!

      Comments about Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional Agent Zero Shine:

      I am 53 years young, and haven't used a powder makeup for years. Normally I just wash, moisturize and then use oil blotting cloths to control the shine. Recently I've become unhappy with the way my skin would become shiny a few hours in, so I decided to try the Porefessional Agent Zero Shine, and so far I have been very happy with the product. It controls shine while giving me a more even, softer look. I also like the packaging, it doesn't cause a lot of powder waste. I think I've finally found a powder that works perfectly for me!

        It's ok, but doesn't prevent oil.

        It is easy to carry on your purse, and comes with a great little brush in the bottom. However, it does not absorb oil or prevent further oil.

            This is a great product and packaging is genius. I keep this in my purse 100% of the time and when I do need it on oil days I usually only ever have to apply it once and that's it. It is a keeper.

              I like the powder and the concept of the packaging. I was excited to try this because I like this brand and have had good results with other things in the line. While I do like the product, I think the brush is a little rough and feels harsh on my skin. I do think the powder is long lasting and shine reducing tho. Just wish the brush was softer.

                What is the difference between the Porefessional Agent Zero Shine and the regular Porefessional?

                  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.
