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...

Pros
  • Moisturising
  • Good Colour Match
  • Little bit goes quite far


Cons
  • 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!
