Broke me out terribly. I was super excited to try this product out, and my skin never reacts to primers so the fact that it broke me out was surprising. I bought mine for 12$, you do get a good amount and it really does fill in pours! Probably one of the best primers i have ever used, i was actually impressed when I looked in the mirror. The consistency is just as most primers, similar to silicone & no weird smell. It also makes a great base for makeup as it creates a smooth canvas & does not stick to dry patches. I wouldn't say it made my makeup last all day or mattified me, but it doesn't claim to do so, thats understandable. If i did not break out from this product I would recommend it to everyone. I recommend this to everyone as long as they don't have sensitive skin.
I am in love with this primer!! I am already on my third tube. When I first bought it I was really skeptical because of all the reviews I have read. So I finally decided to try it out for myself. Best decision I made if I must say!! Its so lightweight and makes my face feel so smooth unlike other primers that made my face feel sticky and stiff. The price is amazing it usually costs about $4-$5 at Walmart. The downfall is the packaging…The tube is so small and I feel like I go through these really fast. Another downfall is at the end of the day I notice I get really oily but overall I love this primer and I recommend it to anyone.
This is amazing. I've heard many people say this primer is a dupe for Benefit's Porefessional, but it's not. I'm going to get this out of the way now: Porefessional is better. For the price and quality, Baby Skin is the more economical buy. I've bought three tubes of this primer for the price of one tube of Porefessional. With that comparison aside, Baby Skin is an amazing primer. I frequently use this instead of bb cream or foundation. It keeps anything else I put on my face for a substantial amount of time.
Buy it. It's cheap and it's a really good primer.
this my definite back up primer for when my elf primer finishes. my fav is elf out of all the primers i hv tried. buth this one comes close enough. i live in the tropics so its very hot and humid and the only primers dat ever kept my makeup intact are these two babies. i would definietly recommend this one
This didn't blur my pores but actually primed my makeup (foundation and concealer) to last all day! This is the best primer I have ever tried and I really love the silicone feeling to it that some call greasy. Anyways, great primer!
This product was an impulse buy. It felt realy good when I first tested it. When I got home and tried more of this, I realize it contains tons of silicone. Silicon, when applied onto your skin, will give you a smooth texture. It could be comdegenic? But so far, it didn't cause much problems to me.
Does it live up to its claims?
1. Baby smooth skin: Yes
2. Lightweight: Meh
3. Moisturises all day: Meh
4. Pore eraser: No
The primer is really nice and smooth on the skin, however I didn't really notice a difference in my face makeup
Just bought this to try, not an big outlay (less than $6 where I live) so if it's not great, not a big loss. Dabbed a bit on the cheeks where I want pores minimized (no makeup, just sunblock). The effect was immediate-- no pores. Now, I have dry skin so the major complaint about it being bad for oily/acne skin shouldn't apply to me; we shall see. It's a primer, not a base, so I do not plan to use it all over, but just on the cheeks. I think I will apply immediately after the sunblock to act as primer on the cheeks tomorrow, then apply foundation. I'll edit my rating (up or down) once I see how the makeup lasts.
The after wearing with makeup report: I tried it yesterday under my Jane Iredale PurePressed foundation. It was hot, I had to walk from a train station to an appointment, and still my makeup looked good, with pores minimized. In fact, the makeup looked good after 12 hours.
Today is a no-makeup day and I decided to see if it blurred the couple of reddish spots I have. It blurred them only a little, not surprising, since it's not a concealer. But the job it does on pores is impressive. And I tried it on a couple of fine lines, and those seem a bit less noticeable too.
Summary: For the price, it's a reasonable product to help minimize pore and perhaps some other imperfections. I notice many gals with oily skin disliked the product; perhaps the formulation works better with drier skin types like mine. I have now raised my rating to 5 lippies.
Don't know if I really love it or not. Check out my review on Instagram! (@beautybylala). Sure, it's affordable. But is it really great?
Pros: It's affordable and it comes with a good amount of product. It actually does a pretty good job at minimizing pores. And believe it or not, my face actually feels soft and smooth with it on!
Cons: It doesn't really help in terms of longevity for my makeup. And although my skin feels smooth and all, it also feels oily. Not good. It feels greasy and silicony! Ew! My thoughts? Maybe it contains SILICONE to clog your pores and make them appear smaller. I've heard that some of L'oreal's skincare products contain silicone, which is why skin looks so good.
I like to let it sit on my face for about 5 minutes before applying, because it's so greasy. I feel like if I apply foundation or concealer right after, they literally slide off when it gets hot.
It's not super amazing, but I don't hate it either. I won't purchase again, though. Silicone on my skin doesn't sound that great. Check the ingredients list ladies!
Not a stellar product, but certainly not a bad one either- at an affordable price. I've found that the trick to using this product is to apply it directly after moisturizing, not even giving the moisturizer time to soak into the skin- this way the products mix together and create a sort of moisturizing primer
