Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser | Review

Saturday, 18 January 2014





Hello Ladies! Once again, I have fallen for the hype, this time in the form of the new Maybelline Baby Skin primer. After hearing endless reviews from bloggers claiming it was a dupe for the Benefit Porefessional, I had to check it out as I love that primer but it is a little bit out of my price range. 

The first time I saw it in Boots I walked by as the stand was so messy and all of the products left looked like they had been opened which is a little bit gross if your going to be putting the product on your skin, but now all of my local Boots and Superdrugs are back in stock with plenty left. 

This primer claims to instantly erase pores and give you smooth looking skin, much like the Porefessional. I've used this a couple of times now and it does reduce the look of my pores but it doesn't completely get rid of them. It also does live up to its claim of giving you smooth skin as my skin did feel noticeably smoother when I used the primer. However, I don't think that it compares to the Porefessional. In my opinion, it works, but just not as well which is a shame as I was hoping to find a great drugstore dupe!

This primer is also great for keeping your make up in place. It didn't really help to reduce shine for me but it did keep my foundation on my skin which is something I struggle with. 

Overall, this is a good drugstore primer but it just isn't as good as the Benefit Porefessional which it has been compared to. I did notice its effects, especially on my cheeks as this is where my pores are largest, so if you are looking for a drugstore primer that will reduce your pores then I would reccomend this, but if you have the money to splash out on the Benefit option, then I would go for that one instead.

    1. Its a good alternative if you don't want to splurge on the Benefit one, but it's definitely not as great. I guess you get what you pay for! xx

  5. I've read such mixed reviews on this so I think I'll have to try for myself as personally I didn't like Porefessional so maybe I'll prefer this x

  6. Thank you for such an honest review, I have Benefit Porefessional and have been using it for so long. I thought once that I didn't need it in my routine so didn't repurchase because of the price, needless to say two days without it and I was hot footing it down to my nearest Boots. I have been wondering if I should give this a go or not, but I odnt think I will x

    1. If your willing to spend the extra money on the Porefessional, I'd definitely go for that one. It's a much better option, just a little pricier! xx

    1. I agree - this makes my makeup lasts longer than normal but unfortunately it doesn't do much for my pores! xx

    1. I think it really depends on your skin type and the foundation your wearing, I haven't found that my make up is sliding around but it definitely isn't as good as the porefessional x

  12. I really want to try this primer - I've heard quite a lot of good things about it. I love Benefit's Porefessional but I find it too expensive to keep repurchasing! x
