One of my biggest frustrations is my skin. I have a bad skin. Lol. I mean, I have oily skin, my skin is prone to pimples, I am acidic and to top it all, I have big pores! And yes, I am living in a tropical country with nasty pollution and unbearable heat, so ugh. You can just imagine how I always struggle to keep a decent face on. LOL.
I have heard/ read about Benefit Porefessional but I am not willing to shell out 1K+ for small tube. I've been on the look for a pore minimizer/eraser and I am so happy that Maybelline has one now!
WHAT IT CLAIMS:
♥ Poreless smooth skin
♥ Lightweight & breathable
♥ Instantly erase pores, imperfections, lines and creases
♥ Skin is shine free, even and baby smooth
WHAT I THINK ABOUT IT:
♥ PACKAGING - I love, love the packaging! I love that it's in a tube and easily squeezable! The translucent gel comes out easily and you can really control the amount that comes out of the tube. Plus, it's pink and green, so just the packaging alone is a good enough reason for me to buy it! Lol.
♥ PRICE - This is just for 299PHP. Very affordable. So worth it! I've been using it for more or less a month now and I can still feel that it has a lot inside!
♥ EXPECTATION/REALITY - One thing that I learned in life (haha!) is to never expect too much from anything or anyone! So when I saw this, I was like, Oh that's cool and the packaging is pretty. Why don't I go ahead and try this? But yeees, I am not gonna expecting anything. I wasn't expecting too much but I was hoping that it will deliver what it claims to do. And guess what, it did! I am so happy I bought this product.
♥ CONCERNS/DISAPPOINTMENT - Well, there's one thing. It didn't keep my face shine free all day! HAHA. I actually was not surprised at all, because like what I have mentioned, I have a terribly oily skin and Manila can be unbearably hot! So there.
♥ OVERALL THOUGHTS - Of course, this does not magically erase pores, but it minimizes the appearance of my HUGE pores! I love it to bits and I am so thankful that we have it here in the Philippines!
♥ REPURCHASE?- Heck yeah!
♥ RATING - 9/10
Anyway, here's a photo so you'll have an idea. I wanted to take a photo with just the Maybelline Baby Skin Pore Eraser, but I am not too comfortable with my bare skin up close - ulk. HAHA So here. You can see on the left photo that I have very visible pores, even liquid foundation and setting powder. Like what I have said, it did not magically erased the pores and imperfections, but I can definitely see the improvement when I have it on. :)
This is my first ever review. Please let me know what you think. I don't know if I did it right. Heehee! Thanks, everyone!
