When given the opportunity to try L'Oreal Paris Revitalift Miracle Blur Cream, I figured perhaps I could find something new to add to my not-so-elaborate skin regimen that could help correct some of the issues I'm noticing. What I ended up was feeling confused and underwhelmed.
The side of the box touts instant gratification to visibly erase little flaws, wrinkles, lines and pores. It talks of innovative textures and light diffusing techniques to cause a "spectacular blurring effect". Maybe I need to change the lights in my bathrooms because I didn't notice instant anything. And as far as the blurring effect? Perhaps if my husband checks out my skin sans contacts the blur will be achieved. The jury is still out on the texture which reminds me a bit of Aquaphor. I don't like my facial products to be thick. On the plus side though, it was fragrance free which is a huge bonus for me. Another plus is that don't need a large amount to get full coverage.
I also felt confused as to what the product was supposed to be. While the side of the box boasts innovative blurring technology and instant gratification, the back of the box seems to indicate this product is nothing more than sunscreen. The active ingredients are all listed as sunscreen, the uses states it helps prevent sunburn and the directions are to apply liberally 15 minutes before sun exposure and reapply every at least every 2 hours.
So what is it? Innovative skincare or sunscreen?
Whichever it is, I'm not feeling the love or seeing the miracle I had hoped for. Sad to say, I won't be spring for the $19.99+ price tag and adding this to my morning routine.
Disclosure: I was provided a complimentary sample of Miracle Blur to try for the purpose of this review.
