Body Shop Sundays: All In One Instablur.

11.1.15




Well it was only a matter of time before I posted about a Body Shop product wasn't it? And because my collection of their products is growing with every shift I work I thought I would start a little mini series called Body Shop Sundays! Which isn't my most inventive series name but these things happen...

Instablur is a Body Shop product I had been lusting after for months and for some reason it took me actually getting a job there before I got my hands on it. But boyyyy am I glad I did. Instablur is a 5-in-one primer that smoothes skin's texture, prolongs makeup, minimises the appearance of pores, controls shine and conditions skin and comes in one universal shade. The face perfector gives you photo-ready skin in an instant and provides the perfect primer for any foundation or BB cream. 

I am a girl who cannot go a day without a primer, and it's safe to say I've spent a fair amount on them in my time. From high end to high street I'm pretty sure I've tried them all, but at the minute Instablur is at the top of my pile. This silicon based primer gives the skin a soft velvety texture. Although it has quite a thick texture it doesn't feel heavy on the skin and blurs my pores amazingly. It leaves my skin feeling smooth and well prepped for any foundation, although I've personally found it helps my liquid foundation last longer than any creams I've tried. The formula reduces my oiliness throughout the day and if I pair it with translucent powder my base is full-proof for up to 8 hours!

I am obsessed with this product and I use it everyday. I realise I'm a little late on the bandwagon with it but I'm glad I've discovered it now! Have you ever tried Instablur? What are your favourite primers? I'm always buying more! Aisling. xo

  1. I've been on the hunt for a good primer that will make my makeup last longer and minimise my pores but have no idea which one to go for. This one sounds amazing! I can't believe it made your makeup last for 8 hours! Will definitely need to pick this up :-) xx

    1. It is amazing! I think it's the silicon that makes it you know. My skin feels like a dream before I've even put any foundation on so it stays put amazingly! Hope you like it :) xx

  2. I've only just started going back to the Body Shop, I don't know why I ever stopped!! But I'll make sure I pick this up next time I'm in town, I've just ran out of primer and I've read so many good things about this :)

    1. I know I didn't use it half as much as I do now and I am so impressed with the products, especially the skincare section it is to die for! xx

  3. I always have to wear a primer too! I really like how this one works though I hate how hard the texture makes it to apply! xx

    1. I know majority of my primers are Illamasqua/Benefit! I don't mind using them for special occasions or extremely long days but this one is perfect for everyday use :) xx
