Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser Review

Friday, 18 April 2014

This product hit the shops and blogosphere a month or two back and I've finally got round to reviewing it. Primers are definitely becoming a lot more common in the drugstore make-up range and the Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser became all the rage when it was released. I resisted for a while, before finally caving in! It claims to 'instantly blur the look of pores, without clogging them and smooth and refine the skin'. 've read that this is a dupe for the Smashbox Photofinish Primer, so if you fancy giving a cheaper version a go first, maybe you should give this a go!

The packing is small and quite pretty, definitely something which would attract teenagers like myself or younger, and you get 22ml per tube. The product itself is a clear gel with a thick consistency which glides very well onto the skin. I only tend to use it along my nose/cheek in order to cover my pores. It doesn't feel greasy and smooths the skin beautifully. On application, it does blur the skin slightly, although I found it didn't really cover my pores when I applied my foundation. I have fairly oily skin and find silicon based primers don't always work as well which could be why this didn't have much of an effect on me. It retails at a price of £7.99, which is fair, however I wont be repurchasing due to it not doing a lot for me!


  • pretty packaging
  • leaves skin feeling smooth 
  • possibly a cheap dupe of high-end product


  • no effect on my pores


  1. I found the exact same thing with this! Great post xxx

  2. I love how to the point this review is! I'd really like to try this primer, but they have yet to release it in Australia :(

  4. It's so disappointing when products don't do what they say!

  5. For some reason this didn't really appeal to me when it came out! It's a shame it doesn't erase pores when that's what it claims to do! I'll stick with the babylips :) X

  6. That's too bad you didn't see any effects! Primers are tricky in that it might take a bit of trial and error to find the right one for you ... often I skip primer altogether. I've heard mixed reviews about this product but I don't think I will be picking it up when it becomes available where I live.
