Unless I am leaving the house for meetings, work, or going out on errands, I don’t wear all that much makeup. While I may not spend time covering, and finishing my face every day, I do like a smooth, even look on my face – even without makeup.
Revitalift Miracle Blur by L’Oreal Paris claims to instantly blur lines, wrinkles and pores. According to L’Oreal,
Revitalift Miracle Blur is not a moisturizer. It’s not a primer. It’s not a foundation. It’s the first-of-its-kind, an instant smoothing Finishing Cream.
You can use Miracle Blur alone, without makeup for a matte finish, or under makeup for a smoother, more even application and wear of makeup.
Revitalift Miracle Blur retails for $24.99.
Review of Revitalift Miracle Blur by L’Oreal Paris
Since I don’t wear makeup on a daily basis, I thought this would be a good way to try L’Oreal Revitalift Miracle Blur.
My two biggest problem areas on my skin are:
- Rosacea, which makes my skin look blotchy and red on my cheeks and chin.
- Big pores. Well, I think they are big, doesn’t every woman over 35?
So, since Revitalife Miracle Blur claims to instantly “blur” problem areas like wrinkles and pores, I thought it would be a good test on makeup-less skin. And the matte finish would help with the rosacea.
The box and packaging, to me, was misleading. It looks more like a sunscreen. Had I not been given it for a review, I might have bypassed it on the beauty shelf.
My first impression was that it was… thick. Like, really thick. Here is a photo of the moisturizer, on the right, and a daily, lighter moisturizer I use on a daily basis on the left.
It’s thick almost like a dryer Vaseline, if that makes sense. It took some work to smooth it on to my skin, but when I did, I noticed an instant matte finish that, yes, did smooth out my skin.
Despite the thickness of the cream, it felt smooth and silky once it was on my skin. That was a plus to me.
I didn’t notice “instant” smoothing of wrinkles and fine likes. Though, to be fair, most of my “fine lines” are around my eye area, and I felt like the product was too thick to gently place under my eyes.
The cream itself smells… like sunscreen. But it has 30 SPF, and to be honest, I don’t think I have ever used a product with SPF that doesn’t smell like sunscreen. Small price to pay for sun protection, so it didn’t bother me at all.
I did like wearing this alone, without makeup. And I like that it has sunscreen built in.
All and all, L’Oreal Revitalift Miracle Blur is a great product to add to your arsenal of face creams and products, but don’t expect a real miracle.
