REVIEW: Maybelline Baby Skin Pore Eraser

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.  :)


P.S.
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!

Great review! :D

Same thoughts! I have oily skin too, and this product doesn't keep my face totally oil-free. BUT I like how it blurs my large pores. Actually I like the pore-blurring power nito better than Porefessional's. The latter has too little coverage for me but I love the silky, powder finish it gives! This Maybelline one has more of a gel texture kasi.

Yay! I know I'm not the only! ;)

I was gonna buy the pore minimizer of Benefit but then I saw that Faceshop has it for a cheaper price, so I grabbed it. I'm happy I read this post because I'm a Maybeline fan and I didn't know that they have it until now. Thanks 4 posting this! :)

Wow, sounds like a very good product for acne relieve, although have not heard of this product. I see before and after picture, looks like it really does it's job.
Ishna said…
Really, wow! Just the fact that someone thinks this has better blurring effect than Porefessional is a,azng! Way to go, Maybelline!
Ishna said…
I actually miss The Face Shop! The last item I bought there was a an eyeliner! :)

Thanks for visiting!:)
Ishna said…
Yes it does! I am so happy that I bought this product. Hope it becomes available at where you are, too. :)

I like the idea of a pore eraser, but yeah, my expectations aren't too great for it either. Especially because I have oily skin too. It's impossible to find things that work with our skin type!

Sincerely,
Sabrina

Magalawa Island in Zambales - 2016

To kick off Philippines' Summer 2016, we headed to Magalawa Island in Palauig, Zambales. Travel time from Manila is more or less 5 hours, depending on your stop overs if you go there by a private car. Boat ride to Magalawa was quick. I think it was between 10-15 minutes.
I did my research before going to the island. And yes, I have read about the feud between the two resorts in the island, Armada and Ruiz. The person in charge for reservation first inquired at Armada but they were fully booked already.  Since I did my research, I knew that I shouldn't expect much. I was looking forward to it, but definitely, I had my expectations set!
So, we arrived at Ruiz, the staff are really nice. People are really helpful and kind. As for the shoreline at resort, I was not disappointed because, like what I have said, I knew what we're going to see. It would have been really better if there were no seaweeds. The water is really clear but the seaweeds are really annoying!  I enjoyed st…

The Neutrals & Nudes (MAC Siss, Yash, Mocha, Taupe)

I took these photos of the lipsticks months ago, but apparently, I would always end up not posting it. Here I am again, drafting an entry but unlike last time, this is not going to be a failed attempt! So let's start!
Lipsticks are my favorite make up! It's the easiest to apply, the most convenient to bring and that make up that can easily give you a transformation from daytime to night time look! My make up kit which I bring to work everyday has a lot of lipsticks in it. I do not even know why I carry a lot of lipstick with me always, but that's how girls are! We bring all the make ups that we can (or is it just me?)!
These are four of the liptsicks that I tend to carry with me everyday. Well, I do not change lipstick every 3 hours, but I like bringing them because I love mixing them lippies! :D


LA Matte Pigment Gloss - Fleur

I think I have mentioned a lot of times how I am a matte kind of girl. I have been seeing a lot of people posting and raving about the LA Matte Pigment for more or less a year now. I was really hesitant to try it because I had an impression that it would be like the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams which I didn't really like.
What made me decide to finally give it a try is when I saw one of my officemates wearing it. It looked really pigmented and I noticed how it has a long lasting effect! There is a stall near my work place which sells the brand so I bought one. I forgot how much exactly did I but it for, but I'm sure it's not more than 350php.

I decided to get Fleur. I was initially thinking of getting Dreamy because I loved it so much when I swatched it but I got talked into getting Fleur because the staff told me that it looks better on me! Lol.
It's really pigmented and I can vouch for its staying power! It doesn't have a weird smell, too so plus points again! It&#…
