So I recently purchased this BB Cream. I've got to be honest, I'm more of a heavy coverage kind of girl but from time to time I do like to lighten my foundation (usually when the weather picks up). Therefore when I was shopping in Boots the other day I picked up a tube of Revlon's Photoready BB Cream to see whether it was any good.
It retails at £9.99 from Boots.
Now Revlon say the following about this product:-
- HYDRATES like moisturizer- SMOOTHES like primer
- COVERS like foundation
- BLURS FLAWS like concealer
- PROTECTS with SPF 30 like sunscreen
Here's what I say...
- Good Colour Match
- Little bit goes quite far
- Makes my skin look greasy
- Feels heavy and greasy on skin
- Does nothing to smooth complexion or cover imperfections
Ok, so I wasn't expecting miracles here. I mean, I am a heavy coverage girl because my skin isn't so amazing. Particularly now that I am hitting the gym everyday. Let me tell you sweat does not aid the complexion.
However, I would expect more of a smoothing effect from this. To me this is nothing more than a tinted moisturiser, which is why I would only wear this under my foundation.
I would not recommend this product unfortunately, despite ordinarily being a big fan of Revlon. Sorry - this time you just didn't do it for me!
