Review | Revlon Photoready BB Cream

Revlon was the next drugstore brand to bring out the current fad product, BB cream. I have been wanting to try out a tinted moisturiser for when I go on holiday in June that had a high SPF and would be easy to just slap on at the beach etc. I had read/watched reviews about lots of different drugstore BB creams and just wasn't that interested because I usually like a medium to high coverage foundation and was a bit scared of wearing something as sheer as a BB cream. 

But I was in Superdrug the other day and saw a Revlon one, I love the Revlon Colorstay Foundation so I put my faith in Revlon and just bought the BB cream on a whim. I got the shade 010 light, which is the lightest colour out of the three. 

I was pleasantly surprised to see it gave a decent amount of coverage for a BB cream/tinted moisturiser. It has a nice thick creamy consistency that blends out nicely and feels really moisturising. 

It gives a natural glowing look, and with some concealer it gives perfect coverage for my skin at the moment because my skin is fairly clear at the moment *touch wood* but I do have minor scaring on my cheek area which needs concealer. I also love the fact it has a high SPF of 30 because I burn in the sun so easily so I really need high SPF!

I don't take notice of all the claims about what BB creams do for your skin, I just think they are the drugstore version of a tinted moisturiser really because hardly any drugstore brands have tinted moisturisers. They have just re-named them BB creams so everyone buys into the whole fad/idea of it. 

I will definitely be taking this in my suit case for hoilday!


  1. I absolutely hated the L'oreal BB cream I had, and thought i'd never try anymore... but might have to give this one a go! xx

  2. Is the loreal one the one with tiny beads in it? Yeah it's worth a try :) and I forgot to mention in the post it's £10 x

  3. Yeah, it's kind of like a rough texture... i didn't like it because it was a bit smeery and came out really dark xx

    1. Ew doesn't sound good! This one is so smooth and I have super pale skin and it doesn't look dark! Xx
