New L'Oreal Miracle Blur Instant Skin Smoother Finishing Cream SPF30

I'm a little confused yet highly intrigued by this new skincare product, my lovelies. From drugstore.com:

New L'Oreal Revitalift Miracle Blur Instant Skin Smoother Finishing Cream SPF30
(retail: $24.99, 1.18 oz)

It's Not a Moisturizer.  It's Not a Foundation.  It's More Than a Primer:
Introducing Miracle Blur, the first-of-its-kind instant skin smoothing finishing cream.  Miracle Blur was specially formulated with a distinctive cushiony texture that instantly blurs lines, wrinkles, pores and uneven texture.  This unique finishing cream blends seamlessly into skin so it instantly looks and feels smooth, leaving a velvet-soft matte finish.  A finishing cream in the truest sense, Revitalift Miracle Blur should be the final step in every woman's skincare routine, applied after moisturizer.  It can also be worn under foundation for smoother, more even application and wear.

Keep reading for more details, plus info about which drugstore now carries this product...

Why is it Different?
Revitalift is the first finishing cream that delivers instant results.  Opti-Blur Technology diffuses light on skin for a soft-focus effect that instantly smoothes lines and wrinkles, hides pores and minimizes little flaws and imperfections.  In 4 weeks, wrinkles, lines and pores appear minimized.  Skin texture appears smoother.
The 30 Second Miracle

Instantly Erases the Look of Wrinkles, Lines & Pores
With Opti-Blur Technology
Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Sunscreen
Made in USA
Ingredients:

Active Ingredients: Avobenzone (3%), Homosalate (10%), Octisalate (5%), Octocrylene (5%), Oxybenzone (6%)

Inactive Ingredients: Dimethicone, C12 15 Alkyl Benzoate, Talc, Diisopropyl Sebacate, Silica, Silica Silylate, Glycerin, Trimethylsiloxysilicate, Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Water 

So...it sounds like this is a face primer with sunscreen, to be worn over your moisturizer. Color me intrigued, folks! I'll be adding this one to my list of "to try and review" in 2013. By the way, this product is now available at CVS per this week's ad. It retails for $24.99 there, as well as at Drugstore.com. But of course WE will never pay that amount for it, right? Coupons and sales are coming...we just need to wait patiently for them.

In the meantime, what do you think? Does this sound like a double-duty product that might fit well into your skincare routine?

  1. I was browsing Drugstore.com yesterday and I'm quite intrigued. It is rather pricey so I'll wait for reviews. I'd hate to spend that much to find I don't like it.

  2. I think I have the same reaction as you G on this product. Confused, but definitely intrigued.

    I can see the 5 different sunscreen compounds...and all the silica to fill in the pores and whatnot, and thus provide a smooth base for foundation. But I don't know what is suppose to help minimize everything in 4 weeks...

    DEFINITELY need to see how this the actual effects of this product haha

  3. I actually saw this last night at my Target (it was $19.99). It looks extremely similiar to Nanoblur. But I actually liked Nip + Fab Sheer Makeup Fix much better than that.

  5. I was visiting Arkansas over the holidays and saw this at Wal-Mart and there were samples!! I got a couple of them, but haven't tried it yet. I will try today, but thought I would let you know in case anyone would be interested in seeing if samples are available in their area. I haven't tried my own area yet, but will. I'm excited to try it.

  6. I have to say for the price I'd rather stick to my BB from Korea... it's cheaper!

  7. Sounds a lot like Nanoblur to me.

    1. The chemical sunscreens and other ingredients just don't appeal to me. I like the concept, but am going to stick with using my favorite BB creams as a makeup base.

  8. Yay I'm the first. I love this product it makes my skin really soft and does a great job hiding my pores. It's a little thick which is why it works but I haven't put foundation over it yet so not sure how that's going to go. Ill re comment after I do my makeup tonight. My only issue is I'm yet to find out if its going to clog my pores or not. Worth the money for sure.

  9. This was sounding great until "Dimethicone" was listed in the ingredients. Talk about cystic acne city for me :(

  10. I'm definitely intrigued by this! Nanoblur is on my want to try list but haven't been able to find it in the US. This sounds like it may definitely be along the same lines! Will be keeping my eyes peeled for this.

  11. Dimethicone and talc top the ingredients list- looks like a pure silicone mixed with powder and SPF. Not surprised it fills in fine lines and pores. Dimethicone is a silicone derivative and silicones are known for being used in cosmetics to smooth out the skin's surface. I'm betting this product will be similar to "perfek't" products from sephora or the clarins "instant smooth perfecting touch". Kudos to L'oreal! First drugstore brand to launch a cosmetic smoother! I'll be waiting for coupons but I definitely want to try this!

  12. My walmart has this on an endcap with some sample packets, I grabbed two to try it out. To me it seems like primer with sunscreen mixed in. Nothing special to me about it. I have pretty good but skin, but i didn't notice even a slight improvement. Maybe it will work for others.

  13. I receive a sample of this product. It felt like a regular sunscreen/moisturizer to me. The product did not seem to do anything miraculous for my skin. I have really clear, generally problem free skin, so I don't know what it does (other than prevent sun damage) for skin like mine.

  14. This product is very much like the Perfekt line only much cheaper!! Loving it so far

  15. This is $24.99 at Walgreens.com, but this week it is BOGO50 and 20% off with code PRETTY. If you buy 2, the effective price is just $14.99. If you don't want two tubes, you could give one to a friend.

  16. There are free samples right now of this at Rite Aid and CVS, on a plastic display.

  17. Yep. I tried a sample last nite. Feels and acts like a very thick silicone primer to me. If you'ver ever felt the Monistat anti-chafing gel that was popular a few years ago as a primer, the texture is EXACTLY like that. Not worth the price at all for me, just that with sunsceen.

  18. The Blur went on smooth, but when adding my own covergirl foundation on top, my face burned very badly. It felt like a chemical reaction as soon as I put combined the two. Be careful. I would never buy it.

  19. My cvs had small samples next to it so I got a couple. I dont have lines or wrinkles but with my large pores and combo skin has been working great making my skin smooth and foundation goes on very well! I think I ll give it and pick it up :)

      I read about a product on Amazon.com that does work great on African American Skin... Magic Perfecting Base by Studio Secrets, go to Amazon to read the reviews.

    2. I've been trying this for about a week now via samples that I got at Walmart and I love it so far!

      Re: April Buie: Go to Amazon.com and look at Magic Perfecting Base by Studio Secrets - reviews. A few people commented that it works great on African American skin.

  21. Hi. I wanted to comment in case people are looking here to find out more about this product. I had a horrible reaction to it. I put it on and didn't like the thick feel of it so I IMMEDIATELY washed it off. it didn't come off..and my soap did not foam. SO I washed 2 more times. After it was off..or so I thought..the burning started. After awhile it stopped but my face became increasingly red throughout the day. When I washed my face in the evening it HURT. This morning it feels and looks as if I have a BAD sunburn. The skin around my eyes and nose is raw, red, and feels like it is gone. After I had this reaction I checked on Makeup Alley and it turns out that many people had this reaction. Please be wary if you decide to try this out.

  22. I tried nanoblur and did as it stated....but left a white tinged residue when using foundation. Miracle blur is better. Put foundation on first ladues and make sure the foundation is dry. Hope this review helps.

  23. I see that they have an oil free one now. Have you tried it yet? Would love to read your opinion.
