A little while ago I skipped along to the fabulous Walford Hilton Hotel for the launch of Garnier's latest offering Perfect Blur - a product promising to 'Blur the signs of ageing in seconds' - needles to say, I was intrigued and myself and the fellow Beauty Bloggers at the event raced over to see for ourselves the effect of this potential miracle in a tube. Bowled over after just one use I decided to continue testing it out over time including using this on it's own, under makeup and over makeup, and became so enamoured with it I picked up a full size tube from my local Boots yesterday (£12.99) and snapped a few before and after photos...
I think the photos really speak for themselves. The quickest of glances shows a massive difference between the left (before Perfect Blur) and right (after Perfect Blur).
The product contains never-seen before skin retouching technology from the Garnier labs in Paris. It's s a highly concentrated formula of light reflectors to create the optical effect of blurring the skin's surface making it appear younger, whilst absorbent silica reduces shine and tightens pores.
Garnier 5 Sec Perfect Blur promises to:
-Diminish Open Pores
I think you can clearly see it really does do all of the above (perhaps not the 'hide blemishes' as, surprisingly, I don't have any at the moment - knocks repeatedly on wood, throws salt over shoulder and clutches a rabbits foot!) and it does it bloody well. Another big thumbs up from me is the feel of the product on the skin, the velvety, slightly whipped-mousse-like texture of the product is instantly absorbed, feels divine and leaves the sumptuously smooth to the touch.
I adore this as both a primer used under makeup to conceal my pesky pores, shine and increase the staying powder of my foundation. and also to dot on over makeup for touch ups to decrease my shininess throughout the day. I'm definitely going to be throwing this in my suitcase for when I jet off on my holidays next month as I just know it will be perfect for those 'no-make-up-but-I-actually-kind-of-need-a-little-help-here-because-I'm-not-a-super model' days on the beach or lounging around the pool.
I highly recommend this product and it is available now for £12.99 from Boots.
