Review: Maybelline Baby Skin instant pore eraser

Maybelline Baby Skin - £7.99, available here

When I heard that Maybelline were bringing out a foundation primer, I was excited. I'd previously been using the Smashbox Photo Finish Primer but at £25 or £12.50 for a smaller tube, that was way too pricey for me to consider repurchasing. I'd tried a couple of other primers which had broken me out so I was reluctant to shell out a lot for another one which might potentially do the same. 

When I went into Boots and saw that they'd started selling this, I tested it out on the back of my hand and saw that it was very similar in consistency to the Smashbox primer and at £7.99 and on a "buy one get one half price" offer, it was a bargain. I picked it up along with a new nail polish and couldn't wait to try it. 

I've been using this every day for  almost three weeks now and the good news is it hasn't broken me out! In fact, I was right when I first tested it - it is very much like the Smashbox primer. I'd even go so far as saying that it's a dupe. I find that it really helps to minimise my pores and it makes my foundation go on a lot smoother than it would if I wasn't using a primer. My makeup also tends to last a full day which is great. I highly recommend this product and will definitely be repurchasing.


  1. The name of this really puts me off but every time I go into Boots I pick it up and have a look so I guess I need to try it!

    1. Yeah, it is a bit weird! I almost mentioned how creepy it was in my review but thought I'd best not haha

  2. The name definitely is a bit creepy! I've been using it for a couple of weeks but I've found that it doesn't last very long, I've already had to buy another bottle!!

  3. It sounds like a good product and not too expensive.

  4. Every time I've passed this product I've put some on my hand to test it, I don't know why I don't just buy it because I'm obviously going to end up doing so haha. The comments above saying the name is creepy, I don't really find the name creepy but the 'only for adults' bit I find really odd hahah! Like I get that it links in but it sounds well sinister and dodgy haha! x

  5. Don't think I've seen this in store? It sounds promosing! Will have to look harder next time i'm in boots, ha!



  6. i can't wait to get my hands on this!


  7. I'm putting this on my list! I haven't been crazy about Too Faced's pore less primer!

  8. I really want to try this. I have quite large pores that make me feel rather self conscious! I usually use Benefit's Porefessional but hate how expensive it is x


  9. I really want to try this! I've heard such good reviews on it.


  10. im currently looking at getting this tomorrow , its being raved about soo much x
