Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser Review

 In my "What I got for Christmas" post last week, I showed a few face products that I recently have gotten. I was planning to do a review on either one or two of the products and I had a few people ask me about the baby skin instant pore eraser from maybelline and how it compared to the Porefessional from benefit. I personally have never used the porefessional so I can't do a comparison, but I will do my best to review this product!

Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser Review
I decided to test the instant pore eraser out after doing a bit of research on it. From what I have figured out, the instant pore eraser has recently just hit the U.S. stores late last year. The product claims to instantly give you a poreless complexion. There has been a lot of hype around this product and in fact, the whole baby lips/skin line from Maybelline is quite successful! I definitely had my doubts about this product, but it was my sister in fact, who persuaded me to try it and I'm glad she did!

The first thing I noticed when I got the product was the way it was packaged. The product comes in a squeeze tube with a nozzle to get the product out. I like the idea of the nozzle as opposed to having to stick your hands into it to get the product out. The little nozzle makes things much more hygienic and cleaner. At the same time however, you have to pay attention to how hard you squeeze the tube because if you push too hard, you might find yourself with more product than you need. (yes, it happened to me and you cannot get the product back inside hehe!)

Another thing that I noticed was the size of the tube. For some reason, I thought that the tube for this product would be huge... like the size of foundation. I was wrong. The size of the tube is similar to the length of a tiny hand sanitize from bath and body works. Each tube contains 20 mL/.67 Fl Oz and cost anywhere beteen $5-8. The positive thing though is that each time you use this product, you only need to use a tiny bit to cover yourself. Therefore, this product will be able to last you a while.

As I put the clear, translucent gel on my face, I realized why they put the word instant in the product title. Right away, my skin turned from rough and dry, to being smooth and velvety like. This smooth finish is very nice for those who have dry skin and wear foundation. The smooth finish gives your skin a really nice base for your foundation.I could not stop touching my face afterwards because of how nice it felt. The gel blended very nicely into my skin and felt very light on my skin. It didn't feel sticky or greasy at all. I could immediately tell that the pores, bumps, and lines on my skin were minimized. There was absolutely no scent to the product which I was okay with because I would rather have a product smell like nothing than to have it stink.

The main question that you guys probably are asking right now is, does it live up to it's claim of completely erasing pores?
  - My answer to that question would be no. Though the product does minimize your pores, I wouldn't go as far to say that it gets rid of them. It definitely does help blur them, making them less viable though. For me personally, I would only use a small amount of this product on specific areas of my face where my pores are the most visible. This would be my nose and the area around my nose! (I have crazy pores there!)

I never knew my skin looked so rough/bumpy till I took picture of it!! I've always thought of my skin as smooth and flawless! hehe. oh well.
Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser Review

The instant pore eraser is very nice and had lots of pros, however, there were a few cons that I found with the product. One thing that I found with the baby skin pore eraser was the fact that it contains a lot (emphasize on a lot) of dimethicone A.K.A. silicone. I'm not sure how I feel about this, but I know that all this silicon might not be good for someone with sensitive skin since silicon is known to trap everything under it so you might end up with breakouts, blackheads, and possible dry skin. I personally have not experienced any of these negative effects and I do really love the product.

Summary- I personally love the product and find the pros to outweigh the cons! The fact that it is a cheap alternative to the high end products is a huge selling point for me!

Pros- "Blurs" your pores and lines.                                            Cons- Contains a lot of silicon
           Gives you super soft skin.                                                          Not the best for sensitive skin
           Affordable                                                                                 Doesn't control oil well.
          Convenient packaging for travel and use
           Lightweight

  12. Hi Mindy!

    I actually saw this product in the store just yesterday and I picked it up and wanted to buy it SO bad, but decided to wait and read a few reviews first. Lately I've been buying products that I don't really *need*, so I'm trying to save my money wherever possible. Lol. I'm so happy you wrote a review on this product because I've been looking for a pore minimizer. The reason I really want to try it now is because of how smooth you said it made your face, and how it instantly visibly shrunk your pores! Thanks for the awesome review. :)

    xo, Sarah
    Hustla, baby.

      hehe I am the same way with products! I had to do some research before deciding to buy it, but it was mainly my sister who told me it was good! (she is obsessed with beauty products and youtube gurus !!.. I actually go to her for makeup product advice !)

  18. This looks fantastic; thanks for sharing! I think with all we do to keep our skin healthy we often forget about how shaving affects it. A lot of irritation is a result of women not using quality blades or changing them often enough. But who can blame them--have you seen the prices for replacement blades? We're a shaving company called Dorco and we want to change all that. Our quality razors cost up to 70% less than leading brands. And you don't have to sacrifice quality to save that much. Read what others think about our products and our prices at DorcoUSA.com. With Dorco, you can afford to change your blades often, and that means happier, healthier skin. Thanks again for such a great post, and for hearing us out!

  27. it does actually look pretty good on your skin! But I'm terrible when it comes to using a primer! I only ever wear it like once a week if I know that I have to stay out till the evening or something….

  28. Thanks for the review Mindy! The difference it makes on your skin is visible in your photos but I don't know how I feel about a product with that much silicone since my skin tends to be sensitive.

  34. Oh, what a cute product! I just love Maybelline, but I never do the fancy product stuff. For me, it's just cleanser, exfoliant and ocassional blush and eyeliner. But glad you gave us such a thorough review. I'll be sure to remember in case I ever consider pore minimizers!

    By the way, CONGRATS on your acceptance and scholarship. You go, girl! And your vacay to NY looked so fun--I really want to visit sometime. Fingers crossed for both of us as we hear back from schools! Can it just be April, please?

    Haha have a great week, Mindy!
