Dry skin might have La Mer in its corner, but oily skin has the classic benefit Porefessional Pore Primer. 

Anyone with large pores or combination/oily skin has likely tried their hand at the classic oil-sopping primer at least once. It smooths, blurs and zaps excess oil like no other pre-makeup step, continuously proving to be the brand’s best selling makeup product. It’s so popular, benefit also blessed us with a radiance-boosting rendition of the tube years ago, the POREfessional Pearl Primer, which targeted problematic pores and dull skin for those days when skin needs a little extra oomph.

However, there’s been one problem looming overhead since those launches: both only kept those with oily or combination skin in mind. Now, the brand decided it’s time to show the normal-to-dry skin types some love with its third rendition.

Launching officially on December 10, the new-and-improved Porefessional Hydrate Primer ($32) is here to blur and smooth your canvas, but hydrate it, too. Expect the same smooth finish we’ve come to love from the original, but with the addition of hyaluronic acid and shea butter to keep things plump.

If you’re after poreless yet dewy and bouncy finish—hello, everyone suffering from flaky, confused winter skin—look no further: this is one product that finally roots for both teams.
