6 Beauty Lovers Spill on the Best Pore Products Out Now
Whether I’m trying to blur them, unclog them, or shrink them, I spend a good amount of time in my routine each day paying attention and treating my pores. But it makes sense, right? When they’re left unattended, I’m dealing with an increased chance of breakouts and then an inevitable bad mood.
And when I find a good product that blurs or minimizes their appearance? It's like a Snapchat selfie marathon up in my apartment.
Need some new product suggestions? I reached out to a few beauty lovers, pros, and bloggers to get the lowdown on the products they love for their pores.
dermalogica Daily Microfoliant
"dermalogica's Daily Microfoliant is magic... pure magic! It minimizes pores, removes dirt and debris, and evens skin tone, revealing brighter, smoother skin. I've never in my life seen a product produce such drastic results after just one use. It's a unique rice-based powder formula that activates upon contact with water, and the rice acts as an incredible exfoliant for the skin," says blogger Taylor-Rae of Style Souffle.
Kiehl's Rare Earth Deep Pore Cleansing Masque
"My favorite pore minimizing product is Kiehl's Rare Earth Pore Cleansing Mask. This product really does work. It's a cleansing mask that will visibly minimize pores and purifies the skin. It has detoxifying Amazonian clay to draw out impurities that clog pores," says makeup artist Robert Sesnek.
iS Clinical Active Serum
"My all time favorite product for minimizing pores. It works fast, you see results in a few days, and it not only minimizes pores, but reduces fine lines and brightens the skin. I'm obsessed with it and use it every day," says makeup artist Georgie Eisdell.
Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional Face Primer
"I have tried over a dozen pore-minimizing primers and this one works the best. Plus, it comes in two sizes," says blogger Elle Sees.
Lancôme Visionnaire 1-Minute Blur
"This formula instantly minimizes and perfects the appearance of skin, and it offers anti-aging and skin smoothing ingredients that improve the skins texture and tone over time. One of my favorite uses for this product is on the back of hands. It softens the look of the skin and makes the hands look young and fresh," says makeup artist Vanessa Scali.
Cosrx One Step Pimple Clear Pads
"I find that the pores on my nose need extra attention, and I'm always looking for an exfoliant that will help cleanse and unclog. I rub these mini pads, which are soaked in glycolic acid, lactic acid, and tea tree oil, among other ingredients, over my nose to exfoliate and minimize the chances of breaking out," says MIMI Editor, Victoria.
