Everyone who is everyone has a BB Cream or two up their sleeves these days. Revlon is no different. Well actually...they are. At least a little bit different. Revlon’s Photoready BB Cream Skin Perfector isn’t a tinted moisturizer, like so many other BB creams on the shelves at the pharmacy. I find this one to be thicker, creamier and to give more coverage than most drugstore BB Creams. Take a look at my half and half.
Not bad, right? The coverage lasts for a full work day, which is something tinted moisturizers don’t do. It gives more coverage than your average drugstore BB Cream and it blurs fine lines and imperfections. It gives me dewy, close to perfect skin. Plus, it boasts a 30 SPF, which I’ll almost never turn down. (SPF can reflect strangely in photos, so if it’s a big day, make sure your foundation is SPF free, or do a screen test first.)
This product lack the skin care that a BB Cream should offer up and it has no whitening properties, so it's not quite a BB Cream by technical standards. However, the Revlon Photoready BB Cream makes your skin look like you are wearing a much higher end product at a much lower price. I'll take it! Revlon's Photoready is only available in three colors, so if BB creams normally ignore your skin tone then sadly, this one probably does as well. The colors available are Light, Light Medium and Medium.
For a drugstore BB, it’s pretty great. Even better, pick it up at CVS Pharmacy and use your Beauty Club Card to earn towards rewards. Don’t forget to check your Beauty Club Card at the scanner for additional coupons. It’s my favorite way to save!
