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, but you can get L’Oreal Miracle blur here on Amazon for less than $15.
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.
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.
