Baby Skin vs The Porefessional

I received a sample size of the Porefessional and I loved it.  It was a great primer and made my skin feel very matte before putting my foundation on.  It make my foundation go on smoothly and helped it last all day. And then I went to look for more and found that it cost 31 dollars!  So I went in search of something similar.  I came across Maybeline's Baby Skin., and for just 6 dollars I bought it!  It is in every way the exact same as the higher priced primer.  The only differences?  The Porefessional is a skin colored cream and Baby skin is a clear gel.  Baby Skin went on just as smoothly and made my skin feel just as matte as The Porefessional did.  All in all I think that these two products are so similar that it just makes sense to buy the cheaper version of it!  There are some products you should purchase high end, but this just is not one of them!

From the Porefessional's website: Quickly minimize the appearance of pores & fine lines for smoother-than-smooth skin! Apply this silky, lightweight balm alone, under or over makeup. Translucent, oil-free formula complements all skintones and helps makeup stay put.

From Maybelines site:  Insta-blur technology visibly smooths pores away. Can be worn alone or under makeup. Non-comedogenic and fragrance-free. Smooth a thin layer under foundation for a smooth-looking finish. Or use alone for flawless-looking skin, smoothing onto areas with visible pores.
