Rated 5 out of 5 by TeriT Fountain of Youth in a tube!
I am a beauty influencer for TBS and take the task at hand very seriously. This new product is amazing, to say the least. Only takes a small drop of product (it is clear, kind of thick, no odor) and you just smooth where it is needed. My eye wrinkles disappear, any uneven skintone diminishes and all else just blurs away, seriously...blurs away. I did an experiment and put insta-blur on one side of my face and none on the other and asked both friends and family if they could tell a difference and everyone instantly chose the side with insta-blur as the smoother side.Was at an informal class reunion and I received soo many compliments on how healthy and young looking I was! This was in 90 degree slightly humid weather!! I have also used with mineral make-up and my complextion is completely smooth. This is a winner!

Rated 5 out of 5 by emeraldia This is essential
First, I apply the Tea tree pore minimiser. Then, I follow with this stuff. You only need a small amount, as it spreads very easily across your face. It mattifies and makes my makeup glide like butter. My only small gripe I have about this stuff is the size it comes in. I wish it came in a bigger tube!

Rated 4 out of 5 by ChloeAndTheRex Love it for Mineral Foundation!
I got this to review from The Body Shop. I have OILY skin. I tried it with my liquid foundation and I was very shiny in a few hours.
I decided to try it with my Bare Minerals compact foundation. It works really well with that. It makes the foundation apply very smoothly and helps give it better coverage. Yay! I will keep using it with mineral/powder foundations.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TLM1 I love it! Period.
OVERALL: i love it. it works better than the primer made by the same company as my foundation! i'd definitely recommend it to a friend.
PERFORMANCE: (i use a mineral foundation) for me, it really does all that TBS describes it's suppose to do! it goes on clear, so i can't tell that it hides anything until i apply my foundation. i don't need to use as much under-eye concealer with Instablur. i don't have to use blotting tissues for shine control as much; only toward the end of my work day which is about 10 hrs after i initially apply my makeup, and that's only in my nose area. usually, my shine is all over my face. i didn't have to retouch my makeup throughout the day. it gives me a smoother look, almost airbrushed.
by the end of the day, my face usually feels "heavy" and i'm anxious to remove my makeup, even though all i use is the mineral foundation and a bit of mascara. with Instablur, i don't have that feeling. so that light & silky nothingness feel lasts throughout the day.
LOOK & FEEL: it LOOKS like a cloudy gel substance and you only need about 1/4 of your baby finger full to cover your face. i rubbed mine in first then applied to my face, but you can also apply small dots of it then rub it in your skin. it FEELS like silky nothingness on my skin! lol it's so light but with a slight feeling like i'm prepping my skin for makeup. it's weird to explain, because it feels like something and yet nothing. it's like magic!
APPLICATION: personally, i wait about 5 minutes between each product: moisturizer, primer, makeup. this helps ensure my skin is absorbing what it needs to before applying something else. in the case of a primer, i want to make sure a proper "barrier" is formed.
SCENT: i don't smell anything.
DISCLAIMER: i received this product free from The Body Shop USA as part of their TBS Beauty Influencer Program, but that doesn't influence my review.
