Maybelline Baby Skin Pore Eraser Review.

Baby Skin Pore Eraser
 
First there was Baby Lips and now welcome Baby Skin to the beauty blogging world. I must admit I was never drawn in by Maybelline's Baby Lips products but they certainly took the blogging world by storm! I have read a few posts about Baby Skin for the past couple of weeks and have been slightly excited to get my paws on it as it's such a bargain and is said to be a dupe of Benefit's pricey POREfessional. So, what is Baby Skin and why was I excited to pick it up? Baby Skin is an 'Instant Pore Eraser' which is a lightweight primer to give you 'smooth and poreless looking skin'. Until I started reading beauty blogs, I never used a primer before applying foundation and now I definitely notice a difference on the days where I don't use a primer. I have tried Benefit's POREfessional and Too Faced's Primed and Poreless which are both pricey at just under £25.00 (yikes) so this is why I was hoping Baby Skin would come and rescue me from expensive primers.
 
"Translucent gel primer blurs the appearance of enlarged pores, lines and other imperfections to create a matte and flawless canvas for makeup to glide. Mattifying formula keeps skin feeling and looking fresh with a baby soft feel, improving the staying power of your foundation while creating the look of a more refined and smoother skin texture".
 
Baby Skin is a clear gel formula which can be applied alone or under makeup. As I mentioned I use it under makeup, so I simply apply this over my face and leave it for a few minutes to set. When applying the primer, it feels so silky soft and fresh. I have to admit here though that even though the primer is aimed to reduce pores, once the primer was applied I didn't actually notice a difference in my skin. I need to highlight this though as the main selling point of the product is that it is pore-reducing. This wasn't a problem for me though as I just hoped it would make a difference to my foundation and thankfully it did. It increases the amount of time that I need before retouching my makeup and this is the most important aspect to me. The packaging is cute and eye catching and you certainly wont miss it on the beauty stands!
 
 Baby Skin retails at just £7.99 for a 22ml tube and is available here. Me being me and addicted to buying beauty products, I couldn't resist buying two as Boots had a 'Buy one get one half price' offer so before I'd even tried it I picked up two! I'm glad I did though as I absolutely love it. This beats Benefit and Too Faced by miles and I'd definitely recommend this as a must have in your makeup bag.
 
Will you be looking out for Baby Skin? x

  8. Really wanted to get this but they'd ran out of it in both Boots and Superdrug when I went, sounds lovely - hope I can get there again before the BOGOHP finishes! Xx

  10. Ohh I really wanted to try this, but if it doesn't actually cover pores then I think I'll give it a miss and put the money towards a more expensive primer!

  11. Yes, I will definitely be looking out for it (: I've just started using primer as well and would love to stock up on this.

    I was actually a BIG fan of the baby lips so hopefully this doesn't disappoint.

  14. This seems like such a good drugstore product! I tend to skip my primer unless I know I'm going to have a long day or a late night! Thanks for the review!
