1. The Body Shop Vitamin C Skin Reviver, £17

"I use it as primer and it's amazing. It instantly smoothes my skin and it's so light. You don't have to wait for it to settle, you can put makeup on straight after you've applied it. I have dry, eczema prone skin and this has never bothered me, I've never had a reaction to it. It smells like oranges but it doesn't linger and you only need a small amount for your whole face. I still use it when I'm having a no make up day and it makes my skin look brighter." – victoriatorsgGet it from, The Body Shop, £17. Get it in the US for $17.40.
