Review: Maybelline Baby Skin Pore Eraser

Pardon the delay but I was finally able to find the time to review this item which I got last April. Maybelline Baby Skin Pore Eraser is a primer designed to make pores appear smaller. One is supposed to put this on before BB creams or foundations, and should make the face a smooth canvas for makeup application. I got this at Watsons Greenbelt 1 for Php399 (22ml).

When dispensed, it comes out as a clear gel-like stream.

One is supposed to apply this specifically on the parts of the face with obvious pores. On me, that’s on the nose and cheeks mainly. Here’s my cleansed face, nothing applied yet.

And a close up on my nose and cheek pores.

I applied a generous amount of Baby Skin Pore Eraser on my nose and cheeks. It goes on silky and settles into the pores as a smooth blanket.

It may not be very clear, but the pores appear blurred. Most notably the small pores near my nose are almost invisible. Unfortunately this product can’t really perform well on the larger pores, which is maybe not something it is designed to do. However, it does deliver on making a smooth canvas, and made it much easier to put on my favorite BB creams.

Definitely I would repurchase this. It is quite a good cheaper alternative to the much-vaunted Benefit Porefessional. It’s also gentle and doesn’t irritate my sensitive skin.

Pros: affordable; availability; gentle on the skin

Cons: none really!

  1. Been thinking of trying this out myself but I just have too much primers right now that I just have to finish them off before I buy a new one. I don’t like wasting products. Haha! 😛 Thanks fore the review! 😀

    1. I tried the Benefit Porefessional before too, and it’s really an eye-opening experience. It’s just too expensive though, which is why this is such a great find. 🙂
