84-year-old Boots shopper says 'magic' £10 moisturiser is her secret to making wrinkles 'disappear'

Boots has slashed the price of a popular anti-ageing primer down from £17.95 to £10. The £10 Boots primer, which people also use as a moisturiser, has been hailed an 'airbrush in a bottle' by some shoppers, who have been impressed by its abilities to smooth over fine lines and keep makeup in place for hours on end.

No7 Instant Illusions Airbrush Away Primer promises to make pores and fine lines disappear, claims to put winkles into soft focus leaving skin perfectly smooth and even all day. 30ml tubes of the N07 Airbrush Primer usually cost £17.95, but have been reduced down to £10 on the Boots website for a limited time.

One 60-year-old shopper explained how her 84-year-old mum uses the primer as a moisturiser, and is blown away by how it makes 'fine lines disappear on application'. The £10 anti-ageing primer has had several glowing reviews on the Boots website.

One five-star reviewer raved about the £10 Boots primer, writing: "This Primer is the best I have ever used. Covers all fine lines." Another said: "I have used this for 3 years and love it! Certainly leaves your skin looking good and does smudge some lines. I apply on top of sun block or moisturiser, then use skin illuminator, a little concealer where necessary and a little foundation. It doesn't irritate my sensitive skin and feels comfortable. A tube lasts a few months."

A third person wrote: "I love this stuff!! always had problems with make up disappearing before the end of the day, this stuff keeps it on all day." A fourth said: "I have been experimenting with various primers for year, mostly high end expensive products. I came across no 7 primer a few years back & can honestly say that this is very high up in being 1 of the best. I would highly recommend you try this. I use Estée Lauder all day wear foundation & it glides over this primmer beautifully. I have also recently bought Charlotte tilbury magic foundation & it glides on perfectly with this too."

"I've used this primer for years & love it. Compared to other primers it's very good value for money. The product has a nice scent & does a good job of giving that airbrushed look," said another beauty fan.

Somebody else said: "Excellent product lines just disappear my mum 84yrs old wears it as a moisturiser she can’t believe it when her lines disappear on application can’t be without this product just amazing I’m not 20yrs old I’m nearly 60 it works buy it."

You can buy the No7 Instant Illusions Airbrush Away Primer for £10 instead of £17.95 on the Boots website for a limited time. Similar primers are available from NYX for £15, and from Too Faced for £34.
