Those with visible pores know the power of Benefit’s Porefessional primers, the way they minimize the appearance of pores and make your makeup look smooth. The original version launched in 2010! But it’s a temporary solution. Well, Benefit wants to help you get those pores in check for good with the launch of an entirely new skincare line, the Pore Care Collection. First up, two masks, two cleansers, a toner, a moisturizer and a pore tool.
This isn’t actually Benefit’s first foray into skincare. There have been a few products over the years, such as Total Moisture Facial Cream ($42 at Benefit Cosmetics) and It’s Potent! Dark Circle Eye Cream ($34 at Benefit Cosmetics), which are still available. But these are the first skincare products dedicated to minimizing pores’ appearance, even without makeup. That’s thanks to ingredients such as celery, flax seed extracts, and mineral-rich kaolin clay and sea silt.
Will Benefit’s Pore Care replace your entire skincare collection? No, of course not. But when you’re dealing with uneven skin texture, clogged pores and the like, you’ll want to add in one of these products, below. They hit Benefit’s website (along with Ulta Beauty and Sephora) February 26 and stores March 1.
The POREfessional Deep Retreat
This pore-clearing clay mask promises a 12-hour mattifying effect thanks to mineral-rich kaolin clay, sea fennel extract and bisabolol.

Have you ever seen a foam toner?! Us either. It’s easy to use and features AHAs, PHAs, lemon extract and yuzu extract to minimize the appearance of pores.
