Review: Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser

Hey Dolls,

Hope you are all good? It's another review day, like I told you I have alot of reviews coming up , so I will dish them out gradually.

Today's review is on Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser..... What a mouth full!
I got this product last summer.I went into Super Drug Store and as I approached the Maybelline stand, I saw " Buy 1,get 1 half price". I decided to shop my favourite products from the brand. I was particularly interested in this product, because I have never used it before, so I decided to buy it. If you check my recent " Look of the Day" posts you will notice this is the primer I have been using.

Let's get into the review, shall we?

Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser

What Maybelline Says:

This is a lightweight primer that smoothens the face and gives the appearance of a poreless looking skin. It has Insta- blur technology that visibly smooths pore away. It can be worn alone or under makeup. It is non- comedogenic and also fragrance free.

Packaging: The Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser comes in a small green tube, very similar to many other primers. It is very cute in size actually, and its contains about 22ml of product.

Formula: Maybelline baby skin is colourless, clear and smooth and has a silicone consistency.

Application: Best applied with your finger tips. Dispense the product and massage into the face, concentrating on areas with the most visible pores.

  • Easy to apply
  • Satin finish
  • Smooth canvas for foundation
  • Its claim to instantly erase pores is a little bit exaggerated. 

My overall thoughts: 

Recently, I find myself reaching for my Maybelline baby skin more than my other primers. I love how soft my face feels when I use it, like a baby's skin for real. I also love the fact that it helps my foundation glide on very very smoothly, and leaves no streaks at all.  I won't use this on a day I have to go out for long though, as it doesn't do much to keep the makeup as long as I would want. I bought this product for 2 reasons: It was on sale, and i've never owned a primer by Maybelline. I would actually finish this tube, and I am pretty sure I would repurchase. 

Purchased from: SuperDrug  Store, Westfield, London

Price:  £7.99

      Ify what do you think of the real technique stippling brush? I use it for clients and in the studio, but personally I use the buffing brush but I want to get the stippling brush for my personal use!

      Maybelline is a big brand and they have everything. It's just that Maybelline Nigeria is bringing in the products in trickles....

  5. Please what is the work of primer? Does it take the place of foundation?

    • No it doesn't take the place of a foundation rather it provides an even base for your foundation thereby preventing your makeup from creasing and your face looking super oily
