{Product Review} L’Oréal RevitaLift® Miracle Blur Finishing Cream

Sunday, February 10, 2013
L’Oréal's latest addition to its Revitalift® product line is Miracle Blur, an instant skin smoother finishing cream that promises to erase the look of wrinkles, lines and pores. {Retail value $24.99}

By using "Opti-Blur" technology, Miracle Blur diffuses light on the skin for a soft-focus blurring effect. It promises to fill in pores and fine lines to create a smooth, flawless look. As an added bonus, Miracle Blur contains a broad spectrum SPF 30 for protection from the sun's harmful rays.

I was excited to try Miracle Blur. As a sufferer of rosacea and a forty-something with a few fine lines and wrinkles, I was ready to put Miracle Blur to the test. Before I started using Miracle Blur, I read the box. Once I saw the words "instant gratification", I was ready to apply it!

Rosacea can be very frustrating as it is not curable, but it is treatable. Some days my skin looks flawless, and other days not so much. It's difficult to manage unexpected triggers which cause flareups. I had high hopes that Miracle Blur would come to the rescue on days when my rosacea was not being cooperative.

L’Oréal Revitalift® Miracle Blur

  • It was thick without being sticky.
  • It offers great coverage without having to use more than a dime-sized amount.
  • It gave my skin a smooth, silky feeling.
  • It diminished the appearance of pores.
  • It helped to reduce some of the redness that results from rosacea, but I still had to apply concealer and a small amount of foundation.
  • It is fragrance-free.

  • I didn't notice a significant difference in the appearance of fine lines or wrinkles.
  • I didn't get the instant gratification that was promised. Results weren't instant, but the box promises further results after 4 weeks of use.
  • All the active ingredients are sunscreens. There were no active ingredients that actually target wrinkles or redness.
  • Directions for use are for the product to be used as a sunscreen rather than as a finishing cream.
  • It was a little pricey for what it offers. It's basically a $25 sunscreen.
Overall, this was a disappointing product from a valued name in skin care. I have used other products from the Revitalift® product line and have been very pleased with the results. But the Miracle Blur did not meet my expectations.

I certainly will not discourage anyone from trying Miracle Blur (all skincare products work differently on different skin types after all). Others may find the product to be effective. I will continue to use the product to see if my goal results are achieved after 4 weeks (as promised on the box). If they are not, I'll move on to the next big thing.
