*Pricey for a drugstore product.
PRESENTATION: Red plastic tube with flip cap
TEXTURE & SCENT: Thick texture (reminds me of Crisco) that disperses into a standard silicone based primer. No obvious fragrance or odor.
SKIN TYPE: All Skin Types
KEY FEATURES: Opti-Blur technology and broad spectrum SPF 30.
QUICK REVIEW: Ho hum. Miracle Blur is no real miracle – pores will still fairly visible and it performed like every other silicone based primer. I did appreciate the higher SPF and its ability to smooth fine lines.
DAY ONE: I used Miracle Blur over my moisturizer and under a powder foundation. When you first apply the product there is an obvious surface smoothing of the skin, particularly where fine lines are an issue. It minimized pores a bit – but they were still rather visible. While it didn’t provide any oil control – it didn’t make my face oilier than usual. So far, no rash from the sunscreen.
DAY TWO: Confession time – I don’t like how it feels all over the face. Silicone based products are not my favorite – but I find that sunscreen products (especially those with higher SPF) are less likely to cause irritation on my skin vs. cream/lotion based products. So I switched up the application to just my sensitive area (my cheeks).
DAY FIVE: Still no rash, but I’m not very impressed by the overall results. They aren’t BAD – but they aren’t really noticeable either. This should have been marketed as a sunscreen product with perfecting benefits vs. the other way around. Then it might be genius.
I’m not a fan of silicone based anything but L’Oreal Revitalift Miracle Blur SPF 30 worked well as a sunscreen for daily use, didn’t improve or hinder foundation application and did a fair job of covering fine lines. I couldn’t shake the discomfort of wearing a heavier primer step, especially since it offered no moisturizing benefits. Overall, I would pass on this product as a skin care product – but I will use it when I need more sun protection since it didn’t irritate my skin.
