THE BEAUTY: MAYBELLINE 'BABY SKIN' - INSTANT PORE ERASER


A few weeks ago my gorgeous friend Zoe, who you will probably know better as 'MammafulZo'
wrote THIS blog post comparing and contrasting two face primers, the Benefit POREfessional and the Maybelline 'Baby Skin' - Instant Pore Eraser.

If you have read GGMH for a long time you will know that around two years ago I had an absolutely horrendous experience with The POREfessional if you want to read about what happened 
if not, lets get back to the point in hand, I hate The POREfessional.

Some people can take primers or leave them, personally I really like to include them in my everyday make-up, the Murad Skin Perfecting Primer being an old favourite.

After Zoe told me that she didn't get along with the Maybelline primer she very kindly offered to send it over to me to see what I thought of it.

I really wanted to give it a go myself having never touched a greasy feeling primer since The POREfessional incident two years ago.

The Instant Pore Eraser is marketed as a lightweight primer to create smooth, poreless looking skin creating the perfect base for your make-up.

The primer retails at £7.99 in Boots and Superdrug which I think for 22ml is a little on the pricey side of drugstore products.

The product itself is a transparent, gel like substance that blends nicely into the skin unlike The POREfessional the product doesn't feel greasy on my skin although it is high in silicone content.

I have quite oily skin so I was surprised that this worked as well as what it did as usually there are some serious oil slick issues going on.
I found that my pores did appear blurred but my main focus on the product was how well my make-up applied on top of it.
My foundation applied effortlessly and although the primer doesn't market itself as a product to make your make-up last longer, it does certainly do that.

Overall, I really, really like this primer and would go as far as to say that I prefer to use it in place of my beloved Murad primer.

Have you tried the Baby Skin primer, what did you think?
