      Comments about The Body Shop All-In-One Instablur:

      I purchased this based on the one reviewer that stated they had super oily skin and this worked for them...I don't know what other people's definition of oily skin is but this did not work at all for me...I have SUPER oily skin and I usually just wear my moisturizer and once that absorbs enough I blot and then add a primer for a matte look but don't wear foundation the majority of the time....I usually use the smashbox primer in the purple tube and that works but gets somewhat oily like 3-4 hours later BUT this primer made me an oil slick not even 2 hours after applying it and the worse part is I could just feel it sitting on top of my skin with all the oil...uuggghh not what you want when you buy a product that claims "12-hour shine control"

      Comments about The Body Shop All-In-One Instablur:

      This product works like it states. It creates this light-weight smooth look to your skin without looking/feeling cakey or oily. It is super weird though, in that its almost a waxy texture that comes out of the tube in solid little gel blocks. I've dropped pieces of it several times as it rolls off of my palm when I squeeze it out of its tube.

      I would suggest putting it in dish or something and then applying from there.

      Otherwise I really do love this product and might buy it again if they smooth out the consistency.

        Comments about The Body Shop All-In-One Instablur:

        As a very dark-skinned black woman, I was only looking for a product to give me a smooth, natural look -- but not add color. I've found it by wearing Instablur ALONE -- without foundation. I know that's not the intended use -- but it works for me. Also, if you've noticed flaking, it might be because you're using too much product. The simple solution is to rub Instablur in your hands together and then apply.

            This was my first day wearing this product and I already know that I will be repurchasing. I put this on before a long day at work not thinking much about it. A primer is a primer right? Then I caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror when I got home.....I was blown away. My makeup looked as fresh as the when I put it on! Im very impressed!

              This product is awesome! I watched a makeup collection on YouTube and she really recommended this stuff. Really blurs my pores and wrinkles and other imperfections. Kept my makeup on all day! Will be buying another once it is empty!

                Comments about The Body Shop All-In-One Instablur:

                It works better than the primer made by the same company as my foundation! FYI, I use a mineral foundation.

                It goes on clear; I can't tell that it hides anything until I apply my foundation. It gives me a smoother look, almost airbrushed.I don't need to use as much under-eye concealer with this. It does mattify and control my shine throughout the entire day.

                By the end of the day, my face usually feels "heavy" and I'm anxious to remove my makeup. With Instablur, I don't feel that way.

                    Thank you for contacting The Body Shop. Instablur works well with combination skin because it mattifies, and help to control shine. It also smooths the skin out, providing a flawless base for makeup. We'd also recommend our Seaweed Pore-Cleansing Facial Exfoliator that deeps cleans blocked pores, and exfoliates the skin, to create a smoother surface.
