Product Information:

This ultra-light gel cream delivers balanced hydration and visibly tightens pores. This ultra-light gel cream refines and tightens pores and reduces the appearance of imperfections. The clarifying formula delivers balanced hydration to troublesome skin, to reveal skin that is mattified and healthier looking. Non pore blocking.

Oily skin is characterized by an over-abundant secretion of oil from the sebaceous gland. Excess oil secretion can cause shiny patches on the skin surface. It can also combine with dry, dull skin cells to clog pores causing blemishes. Some products or ingredients can cause irritation to the skin by being too harsh or trying to dry out the oiliness The bark of the willow tree is a natural source of salicylic acid which helps to refine skin texture and actively target imperfections. Our beauty scientists use active plant extracts approved by Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, to bring you beautiful skincare that's proven to work.

We've taken steps to reduce our impact on the planet at every stage in this product's journey.

Boots Botanics Shine Away Gel Cream is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 25.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great daily cream The consistency is like a gelly serum and it sinks into skin immediately so it doesn't contribute to oily skin. I definitely feel I get enough moisture without adding to shine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good mattifying moisturiser Despite some of the previous reviews saying that you can't wear foundation over this - you can, but you have to leave adequate time for the moisturiser to dry on the skin properly first. I wash my face, moisturise and then go and have a coffee, before putting on my make-up and I find doing that my foundation goes on smoothly and my skin stays pretty matt throughout the day - until around 4pm at least, which is great for my skin (normally oily within a few hours). I don't use this at night as I use more of a treatment moisturiser but this is great during the day in the hot weather at least - not sure about Winter yet, could be too drying even for my oily skin, but we will see. If it is too drying I recommend the All Bright range as I use that in the evenings and on weekends when I'm at home. I've had no adverse reaction from using this and it does seem to be drying out the spots that I have (skin went nuts after giving up smoking and possibly a few hormone things going on, due to age!!) but it is looking clearer the past few days of using this and the red marks that the spots leave behind seem to be going faster as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best for people with oily skin who get spots often An amazing product!! I have tried so many skin creams and washes in order to try clear up the oily look I get on my T Zone as well as the small spots I get on my chin that seem to scar easily! This gel has worked wonders!! It has cleaned up my oily skin like a dream and any spots I get are gone the next day, and no scars! This is a wonder cream/gel and for the price should be the top of the market! It does need to be used both morning and evening in order to see results :)

Rated 1 out of 5 by from PRODUCT HAD SEPERATED AND LOOKED COOKED! Just got this product. Got home and opened it to find the inner seal that should be stuck to the base of the lid (as it's jar packaging) had come away. Once I peeled it away to get to the contents I noticed the product was all rubbery looking as if it had been cooked. I got a cotton bud and moved it to one side and i could see the actual cream gel underneath the rubbery clotted film. I wanted to like this, and start using it. But i just chucked it into the bin. I called Boots Customer Service to tell them and they were very apologetic. However i just hope no one else gets the same cooked rubbery film that i did on there cream gel. I think it could have something to do with the bright HOT lights on the shelves, and of course the poor plastic packaging that is not fit for purpose. It literally cooked the contents. I would think Boots should really look into this as people out there really do want to buy honest budget skincare but i can't see they will if the quality is so poor. I may just go to other stores to buy my designer skincare in the future which means i won't be loyal to Boots as they may like. Even though they did show good customer care it isn't much help if the products are effectively faulty. Regards.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wow! Can I just say, after one use of this I saw a difference! I have blotchy, red skin, quite inflamed and very spot prone but after I applied this there was a considerable difference in the redness of my skin! I have honestly been looking for a product that does this for many years now. I am very impressed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally! Something that helps other than makeup I haven't used any of the other shine away products yet, but I'm so impressed with this gel i'll probably buy the whole range. I've got quite oily skin around my nose,chin and forehead and i'd always relied on oil balancing foundation before, but now i 'd happily leave the house and know my face wont be shiny after 5 minutes without any makeup! It makes my skin look bright, and the whites of my eyes pop, and it's so cheap! I'm not a fan of the woodland smell but others tell me its nice. I came to review because it's well worth telling people about because i was so impressed, so go and buy some!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not really sure what to say I think the problem is that i've been used to using premium branded skincare, when my skin became slightly more oily I decided to give this a go. The smell of it is pleasant enough, the consistency / texture of it is my main issue, it's like rubbing glue on your face. I didn't really find it all that mattifying, but as a night cream i found it had a positive effect, my skin woke feeling pretty good. Not bad on a budget.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works wonders on my combination skin! I decided to give Botanics a go based on reviews and was a little worried about this product because the star rating wasn't that high! My skin is very red on my cheeks and can be dry I suffer with rosacea acne yet my t-zone can be oily. I started using this with the brightening foaming cleanser and brightening toner and I love all three! The first couple of days my skin got worse but I find that happens with new products, within a week it had settled completely and I also swapped my MAC foundation for NO 7 stay perfect and I am so glad I did, overall my skin is now starting to look flawless, its never looked so good.
