Shine No More! Benefit the POREfessional Agent Zero Shine

 

Shiny can be good.

Glitter, sequins, a clean car, all shiny things that are appealing.

Shiny can be good, but not on your face.

I’ve always been one to get oily and I’ve tried pretty much everything to help combat it. My latest attempt is trying Benefit’s the POREfessional Agent Zero Shine. It’s a powder that claims to reduce shine when applied under or over your makeup.

Here’s what it looks like:IMG_9682

 

It comes with it’s own brush, that tucks away neatly at the bottom of the container. The powder itself is a beige color, not exactly translucent but that wasn’t a concern since it matches my skin tone.  IMG_9684

It retails for $30 and can be purchased from Sephora, Ulta and the Benefit website. Is it worth $30? Well, I decided to put the product to the test and show it in action.

“Love it” or “Leave it” | Benefit’s POREfessional Primer Review

If you’re a woman over the age of 18, chances are you hate your pores. You’ve probably even tried a variety of cleansers, toners, creams, etc. that all promise to minimize the appearance of pores. You’ve probably also been disappointed.

Bad news is, once your pores are enlarged, there’s not much you can do to shrink them.

Good news is, there are products out there that can temporarily make your pores less visible… like Benefit’s POREfessional.
