Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser Primer Review

The Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser claims to be a lightweight primer that transforms your skin. By that, it means it’s meant to make your skin feel smoother, softer and appear more refined. It can be worn alone or with make-up. It also claims that foundation will glide on seamlessly. The Instant Pore Eraser retails at £7.99 for 22ml. The Pore Eraser comes in an adorable baby blue tube. It keeps the primer nice and safe and looks super cute.

A product that makes the skin feel smooth

Basically, I’d heard this was a dupe for Benefit’s famous Porefessional. This is something I’ve never tried, mainly because you get so little product for the price you pay. I’ll be honest here, if this is anything like Porefessional, I’m glad I haven’t spent my money on it as it’s not as good as I’d hoped it to be. Firstly, this did in no way, shape or form do anything whatsoever to my pores so I feel the pore eraser name is a tad irrelevant. However, I will say that it did leave my skin feeling lovely and smooth which helped when applying the rest of my makeup. Did it increase wear time? Nope. Did it make my skin look absolutely flawless? Nope. Did it do anything miraculous? No. Personally, I don’t get the hype over this product, to be honest.
 
I mean maybe it’s my skin, maybe it’s a dud product or maybe it’s just not as good as it’s made out to be? Who knows. What I do know is that this does pretty much the same thing for my skin as the MUA Pro-Base Primer but it’s not AS good as the MUA product. Sorry Maybelline, you haven’t impressed me this time. Overall, although this product isn’t bad, it’s definitely not something I’ll be rushing out to buy once I use it up as I feel like the MUA product which retails at around £4.00, is much better. Sorry, Maybelline!
 

Update: July 2017

This post was originally written three years ago. I recently repurchased this product and gave the Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser Primer a second chance. I don’t know whether it is because my skin has changed or if my first tube was a dud. However, I now absolutely love Baby Skin. It just makes my skin feel so smooth and really helps with foundation application. It blurs my pores nicely and helps when I want to create a flawless finish.
