Review* Maybelline baby skin instant pore eraser ❤

Hello beauties,

So as promised, I bring to you my thoughts on the maybelline baby skin instant pore eraser which I purchased the other day, there’s been a lot of controversy over the quality of this product so I hope I can help clear some of that up but also remember not every product works the same way for each person!

Maybelline baby skin instant pore eraser is a silicone based primer with ‘instablur’ technology, it claims to remove the appearance of pores ‘instantly’, leaving you with a smooth flawless finish. You can use the product alone or in between your moisturiser and foundation.


The packaging is really simple but at the same time eye-catching with the bright pink writing on the Turquoise tube. I really like the idea of the squeezy tube as very little product goes to waste, however, if you accidentally squeeze too much out then there’s no way to put it back again, which I realised when I opened it and ended up with it everywhere, you do only need a small amount.


The product itself has a really weird feeling to it, it’s like a slightly textured gel as it comes out but almost feels like a very soft powder as you’re applying it. I personally think it feels slightly greasy but at the same time it dried my nose out again (which unfortunately happens quite often with me anyway). It is however very lightweight and my face seemed to stay in place a lot easier than my normal primer.


I didn’t realise how hard it is to get a good photo of my pores! So from left to right we have bare skin, instant pore eraser on it’s own and with a thin layer of foundation over the pore eraser. The results looked so much better in person than in the photos but you can see that although it doesn’t ‘erase’ my pores it does in fact blur them and makes my foundation cover them so much better than before! Close to flawless, I think with the right foundation it’d be almost perfect.

A definite 4.5/5 from me!

Have you had any experience with this primer?? Let me know your thoughts in the comments! Also if you have a review of this leave the link so I can check out your results.

  1. I tried this and hated the greasy feeling. I kept giving it a try, but I don’t find it did anything for me. I don’t have large pores anyway, but I don’t feel like this helped my makeup stay on. If anything the greasiness just made my skin feel worse. I just didn’t like this as much as other primers I’d used. I don’t think it did anything for me, unfortunately!

          1. yes, I really love it. I used to use the GOSH velvet touch primer, but wanted to try something new (thats when I got the baby skin and wasn’t too impressed – I really wanted to love it). I picked up the Rimmel one as it was on offer and I really love it – it gives a lovely dewy finish too 🙂 x
