avene 3

Being someone who has troublesome skin, I’m always on the look out for skin products to help me along the way a little for clearer looking skin. I am currently on medication for my skin, but it’s always nice to have an extra helping hand. A new addition to my make up collection Avène’s Insta Skin Perfector* is something new to try, and I’ll let you in on a very badly kept secret, this stuff works!

avene 2Lets get the technical formula stuff out of the way first, its SPF30 which makes this great for when you are out and about, or even when on holiday.

It contains light reflecting mineral pigments, so it can match up the best it can to your own skin tone, which is pretty cool if you ask me. Its main aim is to fill in lines and smooth skin to help blur and imperfections for a flawless finish. The fact that it is also tinted makes this a great layering product or something that can be used on its own. It also contains ‘Hydrance’ which gives it its hydrating properties, when I first applied this it didn’t just sit on my skin, it blended really well, with just the tint of colour left to see. No cakey texture.

Avène is a relatively new brand to me, and you know me, I’m always up for trying new products to show you! I’d say this brand is slightly more high-end. This is definitely going in my holiday make up bag, with all that sunshine my face is going to need all the hydration it can get to stay nice and healthy. Would you try a product like this? Perhaps if your complexion isn’t at its best, would you want a little help to get it looking the best it can be.

The colour of this cream is so bronzed and gives a really lovely glow, I’ve tried it with just some highlighter to create a sun kissed look.

Avène is currently available in some Boots stores/online and on lookfantastic.com. The Insta Skin Perfector is £16.50 which I think for a skincare product is a pretty reasonable price. Especially for something so unique as a product aimed for making your insta photos look flawless.
