I love being forty. Strange, but I can honestly tell you I never imagined I would say that.
I vividly remember my mom’s 30th birthday. I was nine years old. I made her a cake, decorated it and proudly helped her celebrate. When you are nine, 30 seems light years away. So 40? Well, 40 is bordering on ancient. 40 is the muse of the middle-aged. She is white-haired, wrinkled and WHAT?
40 is ME and I couldn’t feel further from any of that. I can’t even imagine referring to myself as old, unless you are comparing me TO a nine year old. In fact, I’m happy being 40. That isn’t to say that I don’t occasionally stare in the mirror wishing for the hands of time to be kind to me – especially to my skin. I know that my years growing up in the California sun did their damage, so I’m diligent now about taking care of my skin. And it’s fair to say, I’m a bit of a skin product ‘junkie’.
I LOVE trying new products – especially from brands I know, use and love. Just recently, I was given the opportunity to try L’Oreal Revitalift Miracle Blur.
As someone who loves and experiments with products, I have tried moisturizers, primers, wrinkle creams, fillers, and so much more. Most need 4-6 weeks to see results. But this product was different. It’s promise? Miracle Blur is said to be more than a primer - a product you use AFTER your moisturizer AND “the first-of-its-kind Instant Skin Smoother that instantly erases the look of lines, wrinkles and pores”. Now…. pores are something I CAN see…. especially on either side of my nose.
The cream is thick, but goes on smooth….and it delivers as promised. After putting on my moisturizer, I moved to Miracle Blur. I applied it with my face just inches from the mirror, watching for the ‘instant reaction’. The first thing I noticed is that my skin felt like velvet. Within seconds, my pores were visibly less noticeable and the faint lines around my eyes equally less obvious. Though the product does say that you can wear with or without foundation, I chose to continue with my normal regimen, applying concealer and powder as needed.
As an added bonus, L’Oreal Revitalift Miracle Blur is also SPF 30 and runs about $19.99. Enjoy. Let me know what you think if you try it.
