The Body Shop All-In-One Instablur

The secret to the perfect selfie is here. No retouch needed! I've talked about The Body Shop's All-In-One Instablur launch here, now it's time for a full review.

The Body Shop All-In-One Instablur

5-Action Perfector:
  1. 12-hour shine controlling
  2. Pore smoothing
  3. Blemish hiding
  4. Complexion unifying
  5. Makeup extending

Contains Vitamin E and Community Fair Trade Marula Oil. Use alone or before foundation.



  • It comes in a universal (clear) shade.
  • It blurs out fine lines and minor blemishes - giving skin a soft-focused effect.
  • It has no scent.
  • It has no SPF, hence no white cast, making the skin photo-ready even with flash photography.
  • It has Vitamin E and marula oil to moisturize the skin.
  • It has powders to mattify the skin.
  • It feels velvety smooth on the skin.
  • It controls oil for a long time - no shine even after 6 hours. When my nose starts getting shiny, I just blot with an oil-control film and I don't top if off with powder. My makeup still looks fresh by then.
  • It makes my makeup last longer.
  • Very recommended for oily skin! 

  • It has no tint or coverage.
  • It contains dimethicone.

I'll share with you a really simple look using just 4 of my favorite, trusty products from The Body Shop.

The finish is poreless and matte, and I can just add on a highlighter if I want a dewy finish.

Products used:

I don't use Instablur every single day, since it still contains silicone. Silicone (which came in the form of dimethicone for this product) is inherent in most makeup bases/primers, as it fills in the dips and craters on the surface of your skin, resulting in a smooth, even surface for your base to cling on to. However, it may clog pores when it's not thoroughly removed at the end of the day.

I like using The Body Shop All-In-One Instablur when I know I'm going to have a long day ahead, when I know it'll be hot or humid and I don't want my makeup to melt off, or when there are special events I have to attend. Can't risk an oily face when there will be lots of pictures taken! I love how easy it is for me to achieve a perfect base makeup whenever I use Instablur.

Price: P1,195.00
Available in all The Body Shop stores nationwide

  1. I think your product is also effective for wrinkles. Hehehe. Wonderful!

  2. Ang ganda naman ng FOTD :) Ang funny ng itsura nung swatch wahahaha!

    1. Weird yung swatch, hindi photogenic. Hahaha! :D

  3. Blur creams are <3! I don't get reactions to silicone, but I'm also quite stringent with makeup removal. I double cleanse and even use a scrub when I have particularly heavy makeup on that day. Just to be sure.

    1. First time I've used one and I like it. :) Ooh I have yet to learn that. I'm so lazy when it comes to makeup removal.

    1. I saw your post nga! Galing ng Instablur ♥

  5. This sounds funny, but I can actually see the blurring effect in the FOTD. Parang may soft glow effect. :D

    1. Haha. Tama ka. ;) Galing ng concept and effect ng Instablur. :D
