I usually review things for the kiddos, but today’s review is for a product for mom because, afterall, I am a mom.
My friend Sheila from Pieces of Mom sent me a full size sample of L’Oreal Revitalift Miracle Blur Instant Skin Smoother Finishing Cream. It’s a new product from L’Oreal, retail $24.99.
Miracle Blur was specifically formulated with a distinctive cushiony texture that instantly blurs lines, wrinkles and pores. This unique finishing cream blends seamlessly into skin so it instantly looks and feels smooth, leaving a velvet-soft matte finish that lasts from morning to night. You will discover smoother, softer, flawless looking skin.
With my sample bottle, I did a little experiment – I only used it on one side of my face. I wanted to see and feel the difference between using it and not.
As instructed on the bottle, I washed my face using my usual cleaner then applied Miracle Blur to the right side of my face. It is thick so you need to spread it with your finger tip to rub it into the skin.
I have visible open pores on my face on both sides of my nose. After applying Miracle Blue, I could see it filled in my pores a bit and made them less visible. I also noticed it made my skin less shinny. Looking at the mirror from across the sink, I couldn’t really see a difference, but when I got up close to the mirror I could. Even though I couldn’t see the difference from afar when I ran my finger across both sides of my face I wasn’t able to feel my open pores as much as usual making a slightly smoother.
Although the cream is thick I liked that it was not greasy. I think this is part of the reason it can be used as a foundation, which I haven’t tried. I also liked that I didn’t need to use a lot of it to cover one side of my face. Two small droplets was enough for me to spread across one side.
So, for me the product did what it indicates. Fill my pores, give a matte look and feels slightly smoother when using my fingers to touch. Over the last week, I did notice by end of day the effects are gone.
Miracle Blur is great for when I need to leave the house in a hurry to smooth out my pores a little quickly. I just wouldn’t rely on it to solve my pores issue long term meaning I don’t think it’s meant to “heal” my skin.
