Boots Botanics - Shine Away - Mattifying Gel Cream

 Botanics - Shine Away - Mattifying Gel Cream : A Review

I bought Boot's Botanics - Shine away - mattifying gel cream during the Boot's Botanics sale. I needed a new Moisturiser as the one I was using just wasn't doing it for me. So I decided to pick this one up. 

Botanics Mattifying gel cream is designed to provide balanced moisture and control shine through out the day for oil and combination skin. The Shine Away Mattifying Gel cream contains natural plant products which work to refine and tighten pores, using willow bark's as a natural source of salicylic acid to reduce the appearance of blemishes. 

The cream is a light weight gel which works perfectly as a primer. As well and controlling the skin's oil production throughout the day, it helps make up stay put and look great all day. I've noticed that the oil build up on my skin has reduced, but not to the extent where my skin looks matte. Which I actually think is a good thing, as completely matte skin can look dull and dry. 
I not going to say that Botanics Shine away is a miracle product, but it does help to keep the oil at bay during the day, as well as adding a balanced amount of moisture to the skin. 
As for reducing blemishes, it's okay, again nothing spectacular, but it does certainly help to reduce a bit of the redness as well as tightening pores. 

The best point of the product I think is the how it works under make up as a primer, the other promises are nothing to write home about. I don't think I would rush to repurchase this product anytime soon.
