I've got a confession, we're all friends here right? I've never actually shopped at The Body Shop before. If you follow me here on Twitter (cheeky little self-promo there) I tweeted out my virginity and the beauty bloggers told me unquestionably I was missing out. So, obviously I just had to place an order. Plus, who can deny themselves of the damn-right smashing offers.

Naturally, first on my list was the illustrious All In One Instablur, a universal primer that promises to hide blemishes, tone down those pesky pores and control shine for up to 12 hours. It's done the rounds in the bloggersphere since release day, there's probably not a blog you wouldn't find this on. Dry skin being my nemesis and having tried one or two primers previously, I wrongly assumed they weren't for me. I've tested the the Instablur a handful of times, I've got to admit it does smoothe large pores and extends the wear time of my make-up.

Hydrating my skin is a huge must for me, and it should be for you too. Did you know dehydration is the most common skin condition amongst the masses of people in this world? Literally everyone suffers from it. I'll be the first to raise my hand to admit I don't drink enough fluids but water alone isn't enough treatment. We'd be soaking up our bath water like a sponge if it was. Introducing my skin to new a routine recently, I picked up the Vitamin E Moisture Serum. Unlike it's claims to instantly smoothe skin, it's not a game-changer. My first impressions are positive, it plays it's part but I'm leaning towards gradual improvement. To put to work alongside the serum, I bought the Vitamin E Eye Cream. I've got to hand it to them, it hydrates my skin pronto. As for fine line and wrinkles, I'll get back to you in a few years. Probably just jinxed myself there.

Taking the finale in my picks is the Aloe Protective Restoring Mask. I've got sensitive skin in need of moisture and hydration and I bloody love a good face mask. Who doesn't? It's made up of aloe vera, as the name suggests, detoxifying minerals, amino acids and sesame oil - all pretty nifty for skin rejuvenation. I've used the mask twice and both times it's cooled, calmed and given my skin a nourished feel. I'll absolutely continue using it weekly.


  1. I really like the vitamin e range, I don't think I've tried the eye cream before but I think I'll give it a try soon! xx

    1. Me too, I'm enjoying using it at the moment. You definitely should. I've been trying to jump on the eye cream bandwagon, hoping my skin will thank me in a few years. So far, I'm mighty impressed! x

  3. I just picked up Instablur too and can't wait to try it! My skin is definitely more oily than dry but I've heard really good things about the Vitamin E range. I recommend the Vitamin C range as well, it's fab for brightening dull skin :)

  5. I am dying to try the instablur primer but I am so worried that it'll make my skin break out in lots of spots! I need something that will mask the huge pores I have though! This is a great post and I love your blog :) xx
