Review: Maybelline Baby Skin Pore Eraser

I picked up a tube of Maybelline Baby Skin Pore Eraser from Singapore for approximately SGD$20 (~AUD$16-$17).


It's marketed as a pore erasing primer that makes your skin feel so soft and smooth. It is also lightweight and breathable. I was sold after reading the benefits!

The primer is a translucent gel with a rather thick consistency. However, it's extremely easy to blend into the skin. It is also fragrance free. It kind of reminds me of the Dermalogica Clearing Mattifier, which has almost the same properties.


I found the claims that Maybelline had made so true. I only have to use a tiny amount (about the size of a 5 cent coin) to turn my face into baby-smooth-goodness. It feels so incredibly lightweight as well! I actually cannot help but grope my cheeks after applying the baby skin pore eraser before slathering on foundation. It just feels so ridiculously soft and smooth...

Since I do not possess magical powers/photographic skills, I knew I would not be able to capture the softness and smoothness on camera effectively... but I tried anyway.
Please excuse the hairy hand... And no, I refuse to shave it!

Anyway, I hope you can see the difference that baby skin pore eraser has made on the skin at the back of my hand. The baby skin pore eraser seem to have erased (or at least blur) the fine lines in my skin, which provides a really smooth canvas for foundation or BB cream. It also has a mattifying effect, which seems to disappear after applying my foundations over the top. So if you're after a dewy look, then this is one for you! But this doesn't really bother me even though my face has the potential to resemble a pot full of oil at the end of the day, as the matte look can be achieved by dusting a layer of powder foundation over the top of any liquid foundation or BB cream.

My makeup also seems to last all day. But then again, I don't normally have the where-has-my-makeup-gone problem at the end of the day.

My skin does not feel clogged at all, and I'm pleased to say that I haven't had any breakouts, which is fantastic because I'm super-duperly acne prone now that I'm off the pill (I'm actually terrified of getting acne again).

So with a whole lot of pros and no cons, I have to say that this baby skin pore eraser primer is definitely HG material, and I sure as hell hope they bring it to Australia soon. I found it on Sasa for USD$11.50! I will certainly be picking another one up when this current tube nears empty!

Have you tried this primer before? What is your HG primer?

  3. This sounds amazing, I may have to pick it up!
    It sounds similar to my much-loved Arbonne primer but is far too expensive so I may look out for this in Singapore :)

    1. I have tried Porefessional... It feels similar but I think the baby skin pore eraser felt smoother and softer. But then again, I had to use a tiny sample of the porefessional to compare the two.

  10. I have tried using primer before but I always forget to use it...and they make my makeup slide everywhere.

    We haven't got this here yet, but I look forward to swatching it in store to see how it feels.

  13. Hey Abigail, do you find that it helps make your foundation last longer? This product reminds me of the Benefit Porefessional and I'm wondering if this would be a good dupe for it!

    1. I actually don't normally have a problem with foundation fading away at the end of the day. With that in mind, this primer did not make my foundation fade.

    1. No it doesn't. I'd just use a moisturiser with SPF or a separate sunscreen over the top of your moisturiser.
