Maybelline Baby Skin Review ♥

First there was baby lips and now we welcome baby skin! Baby lips took the blogging world by storm, so of course I had to try this! I was so excited when my superdrug order arrived as this bargain product (£7.99) has been compared several times to Benefits POREfessional but without the price tag. I was actually thinking of buying the POREfessional and then Maybelline brought out Baby Skin. So what exactly is Baby Skin? Baby skin is a lightweight primer which states to give you "smooth, poreless looking skin". I myself suffer with large, visible pores so I was hoping that it would make a difference.

The first thing I noticed when I unwrapped my order, was the adorable packaging! I love the colours and the size (22ml) is perfect for my makeup bag! Maybelline have stuck with the baby lips logo, just changing lips to skin! It comes in a convenient squeezy tube that has a nice sized nozzle so you don't waste the product.

"Translucent gel primer blurs the appearance of enlarged pores, lines and other imperfections to create a matte and flawless canvas for makeup to glide. Mattifying formula keeps skin feeling and looking fresh with a baby soft feel, improving the staying power of your foundation while creating the look of a more refined and smoother skin texture".

I squeeze out a tiny bit of the formula onto my finger tip and apply to my face. After that I wait a couple of minutes to set and carry on with my normal foundation routine. The product is a clear gel based formula that glides onto my skin with ease, however I have found that it can be slightly "Slippery." I must say that when I first used it I was not majorly impressed, I didn't notice an amazing difference in my pore size. However on the second use, I noticed that compared to without it on, my pores actually looked visibly smaller! 

Even though it does technically do what it says on the tube, I won't be rushing out to buy another one. The formula did nothing to improve the longevity of my makeup and neither did it give me a matte finish. However I would say that if you have dry to normal skin you should definitely try it out! Overall I think that if you are looking for a pore minimizing primer, go check this out!

Have you tried Baby Skin?


  1. Hey loved this post, I reviewed this recently this on my blog and loved it but for the exact reason you mentioned, I have very dry skin and it helps me SO much. Nice to see the view of someone else who doesn't :)

  2. great review x


  3. I haven't tried this yet, but I was really hoping it would be good in the summer when my skin is oily and my makeup likes to slide off my face! I still might give it a go when it gets warmer just to say I tried!

  4. The before and after pics are good, you can really see a clear difference! I did like it when I tried it, but wasn't amazed. I think for the price, you can't get much better, but it's not exactly a life-changer of a product! x

    1. I completely agree, It's definitely something to try but I won't be re-purchasing xx

  5. I don't think will work for me as I have oily skin *sighs*

  6. GREAT review! I tried it and wasn't totally blown away like I thought I would have been. Good to know I'm not alone!

  7. This really interesting.
    Can actually see the difference in the photos!

    Great post :)

  8. I really want to try this even though I have oily skin - I love the Pore-fessional and many oily people don't; this would be such a god alternative if i liked it! Lovely review, the pictures do show a difference :) xx


  9. I love the cute little texts you put on your pictures! What do you use to put those on?

  10. We've heard so many great things about this and it's meant to be a good dupe for Benefit's Porefessional right?!! It looks like it's doing wonders for your skin! We'll have to hunt it down once it hits Australian stores!


  11. Wow great post and really impressive photographs. I was so impressed with how effective this was on your pores that I will be rushing out to buy this.I have followed on bloglovin' and can't wait to read more. Would love it if you popped across to see me on http://www.lippylikes.com

  12. Great review. It is nice to see reviews also on affordable makeup! :)
    Can I ask you about which program did you use to do the picture collage?

    1. I use pic monkey for all my picture editing xx

  13. I love how you included a closeup so that we could see the result for themselves. It does look like it made a difference, although I don't know if I would be getting one either.
