I’m already a huge fan of the Benefit POREfessional primer to smooth skin and keep shine away but I still need something after a few hours. Blot on the Spot is an instant oil-blotting stick that claims to keep shine away for 6 hours. I love the idea of this but am always skeptical of products like this so I was keeping everything crossed for this one. The application is really easy and I love the point on the product which makes it really easy to get down the side of the nose and under eyes which is where I always get shine! You just slide it across your face and then I blend.
It’s quite thick and waxy but I’d expect that from something that was going to hold shine away. At first I wasn’t sure about the consistency but it felt quite soft when it went on and didn’t clog my pores up. It actually made my skin look smoother but you just need to get used to the waxy feel. In terms of shine, it instantly mattified my skin and kept it looking smooth for about 4 hours. I tend to prefer blotting papers for getting rid of shine which don’t tend to affect the makeup but as anti-shine products go, this is pretty damn good. Becky x
