When adding a photo or video to your Instagram stories it’s often tempting to apply the Paris filter for good measure. The Paris filter doesn’t overdo it, it essentially makes you look like a yourself just with a bit more of a blurred perfection effect.

It’s so hydrating you don’t necessarily need to apply a true moisturizer before it, but for me, the more hydration, the better, so I double up. The packaging is so cute and compact, making it easy to tote around with you for reapplication.
