My Best Kept Beauty Secret? Revlon’s BB Cream

Sometime last year, I was introduced to a fabulous product, BB cream. It seriously changed my beauty regimen for the better. Recently, BlogHer introduced me to Revlon PhotoReady BB Cream™ Skin Perfector. I quickly learned that this product would take up permanent residence in my makeup bag. I absolutely love to find great drug-store brands. photo 2

Let’s talk for a minute about BB creams and why they should be a part of your makeup routine. Revlon PhotoReady BB Cream Skin Perfector is truly an all-in-one makeup product. I use it as my first step when applying makeup, as it gives me the hydration of a moisturizer with the protection of an SPF 30 sunscreen, while the smooth and even coverage blurs blemishes and spots like a concealer. During the summer, I spend my days running errands and chasing a toddler in the park, the temperatures consistently hover in the 90’s and the humidity takes the heat to a whole other level. It’s nice to apply Revlon PhotoReady BB cream and still look put together.

Of course, if I’m going out or have someplace special to be, my makeup routine changes. I still use the BB cream first–it takes the place of primer, moisturizer and concealer. I’m amazed at the base it gives my mineral powder foundation. Unlike some of the other BB creams, PhotoReady BB Cream™ Skin Perfector comes in 4 shades. That means the BB cream comes in enough shades to find one that is perfect for you without having to overanalyze or test out a ton of different shades. I apply mine with a cosmetic sponge and feel like the coverage is better and more even than applying it with my hands.

I also love the long lasting coverage it provides. I can easily apply this in the morning and still see the benefits of coverage in the afternoon. Even with the heat and humidity, it does a great job. I found that it hydrated my face instead of drying it out and I think that added to the length of time it stayed on. Revlon PhotoReady BB Cream Skin Perfector is my new go-to in the BB cream department. And at a price point you’ll love, I think it might become your new favorite, too.

If you see me working out at the Barre early in the morning, this is my secret. I like my skin to look effortlessly flawless and covered, so I apply this before I leave the house.

    Love this stuff, got a trial sample, and used it twice, would love a full size! Pretty the differnce it makes!

  2. says

    Urban Decay primer (can’t think of the exact name) is my secret weapon, but it’s pricey. I’ll be looking for the PhotoReady BB cream tomorrow! Thanks for the heads up!

    Well I would say my best secret was my BB cream of a different brand, but I would LOVE to try the Revlon brand BB cream. I love that it has the SPF!

  4. Gay says

    Blinc mascara! It never smudges. It coats the lashes with tiny tubes of color. Comes off easily with warm water.

  5. says

    My beauty secret would have to be my Spa Sonic Skin Care System. I just purchased it a few months ago but my face has never been so smooth and my makeup covers so much better. I use it daily and I’ve seen soooo much improvement!

  6. Jenna says

    I have never used this BB cream, it will be the next one I buy though. I love that you can find it at drug stores at a reasonable price.

  7. says

    I don’t wear a ton of makeup on a day-to-day basis. My best secret (maybe not really a secret) is SPF in any face lotion I buy, that’s always a must and then if I’m going to run errands during the day or don’t have anything major going on – I believe a girl can usually pull it together if she has a wand of mascara and a tube of lipstick or gloss. It detracts from other things.

    I always keep Revlon spf 15 foundation powder and a Victoria’s Secret lipgloss in my car and purse so that I have my “essentials” wherever I go.

    Have a blessed day!

    My mom always told me to moisturize my face and my neck. Now that I am older, I truly appreciate her advice. She still has beautiful skin and she is in her 70s.

  10. Megan says

    Well, I love mascara! My eyelashes are almost white without it so it is definitely my must have makeup item. My other beauty secret is fish oil. I started taking it and my face has never been so healthy!

  11. Andrea Frank says

    My beauty secret is Retin A (acne prescription), but I use it to prevent wrinkles now that I’m 30. My dermatologist says is exfoliates skin to keep it smooth and wrinkle free.

  12. Lisa Brown says

    My best kept beauty secret: don’t stress. Stress is so hard on skin and can prematurely age you. Hard for any makeup to look good, if your face looks stressed.

    Moisturize early and often. I’m sure that’s not a real secret but I’m not really good at beauty!! :)

  14. Karla says

    My best kept beauty secret is to sleep with a clean towel over your pillowcase every night before bed. It really
    helps reduce acne.

  15. Anastasia says

    My secret is… I steal ideas from my daughters! I tend to get stuck in the rut of doing what I’m familiar with, so I look to my daughters and “borrow” from their ideas and styles to update and have fun with my own :)

  16. says

    My best beauty product lately is coconut oil!!! You can use it for so many things. I love it as an all over body moisturizer. I’ll have to try this BB Creme as well.

  17. Suzanne K says

    I gently exfoliate with my washcloth every time I was my face, keeps my skin renewed and younger looking

  18. Nicole Newby says

    My secret is LESS IS MORE! It’s not really a secret, but some women still don’t get it.

  19. LAMusing says

    For the occasional blemish: grind up a cheap aspirin tablet, add a dab of honey and smear it on the blemish at night. One or two days and it’s gone!

  20. Stephanie Larison says

    My secret is moisturizing before anything else. I step out of the shower and put it on, let the steam soak it into my skin perfectly.

  21. Wild Orchid says

    My best beauty secret is to use a primer before applying foundation.

    Thanks for the chance to win!

  22. Stephanie G says

    I live in a dry climate so I have to drink lots of water and use daily sunscreen and moisturizer to keep my skin looking and feeling healthy!

  23. Ashley Morrissey says

    Confidence is beauty. A smile is the best thing a woman can wear. Oh, and always wash your face before you go to sleep at night! 😛

  24. ky2here says

    Use witch hazel as toner, it’s the primary ingredient in Clinique Potion #2 and way, way, way cheaper.

  25. MannaB says

    For extra coverage instead of caking on the foundation, I first do a layer of tinted moisturizer and then do a layer of foundation.

  26. Angela W says

    Use a foundation that has a combination of sunscreen in it. This helps to prevent your face from getting burnt.

  27. kathy pease says

    To avoid mascara smudges, hold a plastic spoon under the upper and lower lashes to shield the rest of your eye makeup.

  28. susan smoaks says

    My best kept beauty secret is neutrogena sunscreen, i wear it everyday to stay safe and it gives me flawless skin too!

    Sometimes I use my lip color to use on my cheeks in a pinch.
