Revlon PhotoReady BB Cream Skin Perfector Light


I’m really starting to think that pale girls and American BB Creams just don’t go together. Every one that I have tried just hasn’t been a good match for my skin tone. This Revlon PhotoReady BB Cream was a better match than others I've tried but still not close enough for me to be able to use on a day to day basis.

I wore this around the house because you all know I’m not going outside with my face looking a different color from the rest of me. This product goes on smooth and does help to even out the skin tone. I would say that it has sheer coverage and hides minor flaws. If you’re looking for more coverage I would add a concealer or powder to go along with this product. I also noticed that it had a tendency to emphasize dry areas on my face and took a bit more work to get a natural finish in those areas.

It contains an SPF 30 and the scent from it is very strong right out of the bottle. I really can’t stand the way sunscreen smells but I will say that after about 30 minutes or so I could no longer smell it as strongly.

At the end of the day I did not feel oily or like the product was sliding off my face. It also didn't oxidize and get darker on me like others I've tried. Even though this wasn’t a match for my skin tone I do think that the formulation of this product is very good for its price point.

  1. Honestly, I haven't ventured into the BB cream mania.... I just feel like they do a munch of things ok and nothing great. Maybe if a great organic version comes out I will give it a shot. But until then....
