REVIEW: Maybelline Baby Skin Primer.

Hey guys! Today I have a review for you all on Maybelline's Baby Skin primer. I'm not really into primers all that much, I do notice a difference when I use them but they don't really interest or excited me. However, this one did catch my eye for some reason and for the past few weeks I've been trying it out and so I thought I'd share with you my thoughts on it.

Maybelline's Baby Skin is a lightweight primer that promises to instantly erase your pores and to make your face look 'poreless'. The product itself has cute packaging as you can see like all the 'Baby' range does, bright colours reminiscent of the Summer.

The product is transparent and fairly thick in consistency, there's no tint to it on the skin and there's also no fragrance. A little bit of this goes a long way so you don't really need a lot at all. It spreads evenly and nicely - there's no difficulty in applying this across your face with your fingers and it doesn't gather in any particular area.

It also doesn't cause any irritation or breakouts in my skin. My skin is very sensitive and can be quite dry or oily at times but I've had no problems with the condition of my skin with this product. This may be because this primer - like many others, is silicone based. Though opinions on silicone varies, it sits on top of the skin and therefore protects the layer of skin and locks in any moisture whilst filling it uneven textures. Due to this, it doesn't clog up your pores which would cause breakouts to occur. Because of this though, it also locks in any sebum or dirt you have may have on your skin so of course it's important your face is as clean as possible when using any silicone based product. It doesn't really do anything for oily skin in terms of oil control - it doesn't make it worse, but it doesn't really mattify either so this may be something you want to consider if you have very oily skin.

I think it does definitely minimise the appearance of my pores and I do see a differencein how my foundation looks when I have applied this. I also feel it helps my foundation to apply more smoothly and look more flawless. For that reason, I do like this primer but I wouldn't say it will make your skin look completely poreless. It does exactly what you need a primer to do and for that reason I think it's a good product and one that I would buy again. While it's not amazing or a miracle product, it does make a difference to how your makeup looks and I would therefore recommend it. Of course, it all depends on what exactly you want your primer to do, but I think Maybelline's Baby Skin is overall a good option.

You can grab yourself this primer here for £7.99.
