The Body Shop does it again! Instablur All-in-one

The Body Shop is really bringing it in terms of new and epic releases. I am a massive fan of their Vitamin E range (blog post to follow!), and they just keep launching new and exciting products. I decided to try the Instablur All-in-one 5-action perfector, but then my eye caught a similar, but smaller tube: Instablur All-in-one Tinted Concealer + Primer for Eyes.

Both products are primers and have the same type of texture as the Clarins Instant Smooth Perfecting Touch primer. The Instablur for the face is a colourless silicone primer that glides onto the skin to smooth and mask pores. It doesn't feel greasy or weird, just smooth and soft. I've been using this under my Bobbi Brown foundation stick as well as BB creams and it works a treat.

The Instablur for eyes is a tinted product with the same consistency as the Instablur for face. The amazing thing about this product is that you can use it as both an eyeshadow primer, as well as an under-eye concealer. Yes, I also had to pick my jaw off the ground when I read that the first time. Granted, girls with very dark circles under their eyes will still need to use a concealer, but how convenient is it to use one product instead of two? I can definitely tell that it prolongs the wear of my eyeshadow, and it might even be *whispers* better than my Urban Decay eyeshadow primer potions.

The Instablur for face and eyes retails for R190 and R120 respectively. If, like me, you want to save a bit of money you can wait until The Body Shop has one of their cool sales where you either get 20% or 50% off, or 3-for-2 (might I recommend a Colour Crush lipstick or the honey bronzer as a third product?).

Have you ever used any of these products? Let me know in the comments section!

Until next time!
