Review: L’Oreal Revitalift Miracle Blur.

The L’Oreal Revitalift Miracle Blur is a unique product. The product itself is very dense, it felt like a non-greasy Vaseline. For how dense it was it worked nicely into my skin and instantly left a matte finish. My skin felt silky smooth and my pores were less visible. 

I like how this looks with or without makeup and the fact it has SPF 30 makes it great for days where I don’t want to wear makeup but just need a bit of perfecting. Definitely a unique skin product and for the warmer months this will be great in lieu of foundation.

L’Oréal Paris presents a breakthrough for your skin: NEW RevitaLift® Miracle Blur

What Is Miracle Blur? It’s NOT a moisturizer, it’s MORE than a primer; it’s the first of-its-kind Instant Skin Smoother.

What Does It Do? Miracle Blur instantly erases the look of lines, wrinkles, and pores. Skin instantly looks and feels smooth, leaving a velvet soft matte finish

When Should I Use It? Apply daily after moisturizing as the final step in every woman’s skincare routine. Wear alone for a matte finish, or wear under makeup for smoother application and wear.

 

 

Review: L’Oreal Paris Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream

Review: L’Oreal Paris Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream
If you’re new to “BB Creams”, don’t let the name scare you it’s simply stands for an all-in-one “Beauty Balm” . A product that works as moisturizer and/or skin treatment, primer and foundation all in one tube. The trend of BB Creams started in Asia and over the last year have gained popularity in the US. 

This all-in-one beauty solution primes, corrects, hydrates and perfects, while resulting in a beautiful bare skinned look. The secret to L’Oreal’s Magic Skin Beautifier B.B. Cream Meet is the Beautifying Beads (see photo adove); encapsulated pigments infused in an ultra-light lotion with antioxidants Vitamins C&E. This multi-tasking skin beautifier delivers 4 beautifying actions in 1: hydrates, corrects, evens and perfects. Instantly transforms to your perfect shade for a flawless, bare skin finish. Over time, leaving you more beautiful skin.

With the L’Oreal Paris BB Cream I can  skip my normal facial moisturizer and my face feels hydrated all day. It leaves a nice matte, yet natural, look to the skin, without feeling heavy or looking cakey. The product goes on white, but as you blend the beads are broken and pigment is released creating your own perfect shade. The cream provided and natural evening out of my skin leaving it perfected but still natural looking. I  would put it in a  light-to-medium category,  but the formula is build able if you need a bit extra coverage.

Magic Skin Beautifier comes in four shades to match a multitude of skin colors. I use Medium, which suits my self- tan well. Choose from Fair, Light, Medium and Deep.

Beauty 911: Skin Cancer Doesn’t Discriminate

Now that summer is here, it is important for all ethnicities to protect skin from harmful UV rays—dark skin does not mean immunity from skin cancer. According to a recent survey from the Archives of Dermatology, 65 % of ethnic individuals believe they are not at risk for skin cancer, and therefore, often do not get their skin checked until it’s too late.

A recent L’Oréal Research & Innovation study brought to light that darker skin tones are certainly not exempt to the sun’s harmful rays. In fact, the study demonstrated that the highest risk of DNA damages was in light to tan skin, which includes most Hispanics and some African-Americans.

Need proof? The well-known reggae star, Bob Marley, eventually died from a melanoma on his toe, which he originally believed to be a soccer injury. His legacy will always live on in the music world, but his untimely death also serves as a reminder that skin cancer does not discriminate; it occurs in all populations, regardless of skin color.

To ensure proper care of fair, tan, dark, and every shade of skin in between, make sure to protect skin with SPF before heading outside! La Roche-Posay Anthelios 60 Ultra-Light Sunscreen Lotion Spray ($35.50, laroche-posay.us) offers broad spectrum UV protection in an alcohol-free, 360 degree aerosol spray lotion.

L’Oreal being sued because one of their products if flammable???

I was really shocked to read this news this morning – doesn’t seem like this could be true! Apparently L’Oreal is the subject of a new class action lawsuit claiming their product, Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine Anti-Frizz Serum is flammable!

Women’s Wear Daily reports today that the lawsuit against L’Oreal is on: A judge granted class action to four plaintiffs on Thursday who filed the motion for class certification on Feb. 2. The plaintiffs are seeking recognition for any person who purchased the Garnier serum from Feb. 4, 2008, to the present.

According to the lawsuit and Top Class Actions law blog, the Garnier serum’s two main ingredients are cyclopentasiloxane and dimethiconol, chemicals that can ignite at 171 degrees Fahrenheit. (Flat iron temperatures typically range from 300-450 degrees Fahrenheit.)

A copy of the original lawsuit, filed in June 2011, can be found here.

OMG. We’ve totally used that stuff before, without any bonfire-type incidents. But of course, flammable products are not exactly something you want coming between your hair and a high-heat styling appliance like a blow dryer or flat iron, which most women use on a regular basis.

We’ve contacted L’Oreal for comment on this lawsuit, and we’ll keep you posted on whether the Garnier anti-frizz serum will be yanked from the shelves, but in the meantime, check out some other controversial beauty products below.

Imagine how scary that would be! A class action lawsuit means that this has happened many times. Scary!!

Might want to beware of this product, ladies!
