The MAGIC of Blur (Revitalift Magic Blur by L’Oreal)


All the stress of driving, looking for directions, and finding a parking space yesterday in BGC was taken away by a relaxing 30-minute facial at Neo Day Spa with L’Oreal Paris Philippines.

I was very intrigued about the newest addition to the the number one anti-aging franchise Revitalift by L’Oréal Paris. It launches its first instant anti-aging skincare cream, “Magic Blur”. A critical step that follows regular cleansing, toning, and moisturizing, Magic Blur perfects every woman’s daily regimen for younger looking skin by instantly blurring away pores, dullness, and facial lines of early aging.

The name itself got me excited as I knew it would somehow be similar to that of a makeup primer…and I was correct!

I vlogged about this day on my YouTube Channel – will have the video embedded here as soon as it goes live!

The facial consisted of the following steps with, of course, products from the Revitalift line:

STEP 1. CLEANSE – The Revitalift Foam instantly removes makeup residue and thoroughly eliminates impurities. It has Glycerin that gently smooth roughness, for a visibly revived skin.


My experience: It was my first time using this product, and I must admit it stung my face a tiny bit. But it did go away after a few minutes. I thoroughly enjoyed its scent—very mabango!


STEP 2. TONE – Make your skin feel softer, smoother, freshened up and retightened with L’Oreal Anti-Aging + Firming Milky Toner. Powerful Dermalift conceived to help retighten skin and Pro-Retinol A, known to reduce wrinkles.


My experience: This toner felt really light as opposed to its ‘lotion-y’ look from the bottle. It’s actually very milky! Slight tingling sensation, but went away after a few minutes!


STEP THREE. MOISTURIZE – Moisturize face and neck in gentle, circular motion and intensely nourish and restore youthful appearance with the Revitalift Day Cream with SPF 23 PA+++. Dermalift and Pro-Retinol A stimulate your skin’s natural lifters and work on the eight facial lines for restored elasticity and firmness.


My experience: I love how this moisturizer ISN’T thick. It left my skin really plump—which is a sign that it was thoroughly moisturized!


STEP FOUR. PERFECT – Perfect your 4-Step Regimen with Revitalift  Magic Blur! Magically blur lines, pores, and imperfections in a flash! Opti-blur Technology, Pro-Retinol A, and Dermalift leave skin feeling and looking younger and velvety, INSTANTLY!




My experience: This has got to be my FAVORITE step. I am so in love with makeup primers as it does so many wonderful things to the skin and the makeup. And now the Revitalift Magic Blur made me fall in love since it has features that of a makeup primer + it has other skincare benefits! SKINCARE+MAKEUP in one = PERFECTION!


I really enjoyed the facial massage, it almost sent me to sleep! I tell you, therapists at Neo Day Spa have magic, massaging hands. I could get used to these kinds of facials EVERY DAY!


The Revitalift Magic Blur definitely delivers INSTANT results.

It magically blurs away facial lines in seconds. With a unique non-greasy, non-sticky and weightless cushiony texture, Magic Blur works like magic on the skin reducing facial lines visibility, pore visibility, and skin roughness in just a matter of seconds.

And here’s more good news!

…more than just temporarily erasing facial lines, Magic Blur also reduces appearance of lines and enlarged pores over time with regular use!

A Must-Have this Summer Season! (Nivea Gentle Facial Cleansing Wipes)


This summer season, one thing you MUST definitely have in your bag is the Nivea Gentle Facial Cleansing Wipes! (P140.00, Watsons)



I’ve been a user of Nivea products for the longest time, and this has got to be my favorite amongst the newest products they have!

Not only is this a makeup remover, it also is, primarily, a facial cleansing wipe!

If you watched our recent trip in Balesin Island, you’d know how DIRTY we got from all the gold cart rides around the island—dirt and grime all over the face, for sure!!! No need to panic, since the Nivea Gentle Cleansing Wipes got it all handled!

“The Nivea Daily Essentials Gentle Facial Cleansing Wipes – enriched with natural Almond Oil & Hydra IQ:

  • Gently cleanses, removing makeup and waterproof mascara
  • Leaves skin feeling hydrated and soft
  • The formula with Almond Oil is mild & nourishing and is suitable for dry and sensitive skin”


1 pack contains 25 wipes and I honestly only need 2 wipes to remove full makeup off my face.


What I love about this Nivea Cleansing Wipes?

  1. It thoroughly cleanses and refreshes your skin, giving you a fresh finish!
  2. It is really hydrating, but does not feel grimy/sticky on the skin. It leaves a squeaky clean feel!
  3. It smells pleasant!
  4. It removes makeup easily!
  5. It’s very convenient to use, bring it wherever you want to!
  6. It’s really affordable! Only P140.00 at Watsons


This will come in handy this SUMMER TIME—tag it along with you to the beach and effortlessly remove makeup at the end of a fun day/cleanse your skin from all the dirt and grime—no matter how tired you are!
