I always find irritating how there doesn't seem to be a way of winning against dull skin in winter when you have an oily t-zone yet dehydrated skin in general - especially coming from a gal who doesn't actually drink enough water during the day. (shame on me, I know)
I'm not the biggest fan of layering 100 products underneath my foundation because if something goes horribly wrong you just don't know what caused it. I was looking for something special to make my makeup look more flawless and protect my skin during the harsh weather since I live by the sea and the wind kills me every morning.
The Vitamin C Skin Reviver is a little gem I found extremely helpful and surprisingly GREAT. Now, I do have a thing for The Body Shop - always have - but finding a primer that would bring natural radiance to my skin hasn't exactly been my type thing since I always enjoyed a matte look. I guess it was time for a little change and I wanted to get my hands on something that wasn't going to leave me looking like a disco ball.
This product contains light reflecting particles and leaves the skin with a super smooth finish, a little like a proper pore-perfecting primer. I end up wearing it with no make up at all when I have to run some errands and it reduces the appearance of my pores significantly. When I put makeup on top the finish is just...porcelain-doll like! I love it! It's worth mentioning that it doesn't let the layer of makeup slip off or stain your clothes, especially if you have some heavy-duty foundation on.
It retails for £15 and even though some may think the price is a little steep for a 30ml bottle, you do need the tiniest amount. It's also one of the top rated products on The Body Shop online - honestly, don't know how I managed to miss it until now.
