It's been a while since I have reviewed a beauty product, but I have a new one for you, and it was worth the wait. The product? L'Oreal RevitaLift Miracle Blur, and it's a winner!
I was recently offered a free sample of this while out shopping, so I grabbed a couple to give a try before I really even knew what it was supposed to do. No matter- it was free, and I do use (and love) other L'Oreal RevitaLift products, so I took it home to figure out.
After a little light reading about this new product, I discovered that it is primarily touted to blur out the appearance of fine lines and other skin imperfections. As I have mentioned before, my primary skin imperfections aren't really fine lines (yet- fingers crossed) as much as skin tone imperfections. I have dark circles, and a face full of freckles. Now, I'm not a huge fan of either but after 30-some years of living with them, I've become pretty adept at figuring out how to make my skin look as flawless as possible- thanks in large part to quite a bit of spackle that I will never give up. But let's face it, there are some situations where a fully made up face just doesn't make sense- the beach, the pool, the gym, working in the yard, etc.
And that's where this product comes in. I used my samples for a couple of early morning gym visits, and I have to say that my bare face has never looked better! It literally blurs out all of the skin imperfections and makes your skin look (and feel) really fabulous. Usually, I have to be on my death bed before I will leave the house without makeup- and I guess if I were on my death bed, I wouldn't be going anywhere anyway, but you get the idea- this product is a game changer. Now, to clarify, I will NEVER show up at the office, a speaking engagement (what I do for work), or most any other worthwhile venture without being made up first. But for those trips to the gym or the pool, I have found my new best friend! Oh, and It does contain a fair amount of sunscreen too, which protects your skin on days you are outside.
Other reviewers have also said that they use this as a makeup primer because it also makes your skin feel incredibly smooth, so I can certainly see why people might decide to use it for that. But for this reviewer, I am more than content with using it alone and letting it work it's magic all on it's own.
It is relatively new to the market, so you may have a little trouble finding it in stores just yet. I did. So I ended up ordering my full size product from Amazon. So head's up just in case.
I'm so glad I gave this product a try; it's one of the few that really does all it says it does.
I'm a happy girl. :)
