Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser Review

Available At Boots For £7.99
Hello lovelies I picked up the Maybelline  baby skin primer the other day because I saw a lot of reviews of this floating around so wanted to give it a try. 




I'v been using this underneath my nars sheer glow and i'm in two minds of this product. When first applied onto the skin I immediately felt my fingers feel a little greasy which was not a good sign, however it went on the skin smoothly and didn't make my face look oily or greasy apart from my nose area which was the most visible where the product sort of sat there in the sides of my nose.

After applying unfortunately I failed to notice it covering my pores like the product suggests it will, but it did make my skin feel really soft and made foundation apply on effortlessly. 


With Primer On Under Make- Up


While I was wearing this through out the day it didn't really make no difference to my foundation as I still got oily a few hours into the day but this is because I have very oily skin so for those with dry skin this would be better suited to you.  

Good points 

- Gives a nice soft smooth base for foundation
- Makes skin really like "baby skin"
- A good value primer for £7.99 
- Great primer for those who haven't used a primer and want to see how it's like without splashing out
- Not drying at all which was a disadvantage to me but is definitely  an advantage to you dry skin girls

Bad points

- Didn't cover my pores at all 
- Felt greasy on my skin (nose area) as it didn't suit my already oily skin type
- Didn't make a difference to how long my foundation lasted 

Overall I would not repurchase this product but I don't mind finishing it because I do like how it makes my foundation go on because it makes my skin so smooth. I recommend this product to dry skin girls who want a nice base and for those who want to try out a primer but not spend £20.


Have you tried this primer? What were your thoughts?

  1. I'm currently on my 2nd day of testing this primer. I find it very slightly blurs the look of my pores around my nose but not very drastically. I love how smooth it makes my skin though!

  2. Thanks for sharing lovely, firstly I think you have beautiful skin without the product! But I've found when trying products like this they improve the texture but don't give the results they promise unfortunately!

  9. I have really dry skin, and have read many reviews where people have said it made dry patches even drier so I've avoided it so far. Your hair is stunning, I love the colour! xx

  16. I found the same with the Look primer I bought, it just doesn't seem to make that much difference to how long makeup lasts which to me is what I would want it for

  17. The main reason I would buy this is to help cover pores, but I haven't heard any good reviews about it actually doing that so it's a miss for me :( xx

  19. This sounds like Maybelline's Fit Me foundation. It sat on on t zone and my whole face and made my oily skin go insane. It's such a shame because after reviews I've read, I'm not convinced Maybelline products for the complexion work at all.

    I suppose at least there are some perks of this. The name creeps me out a bit though.
