Revlon Photoready BB Cream Review India

Everyone who has a different ‘Photo Ready Face’ as compared to their normal face raise your hands ! You know what i mean right- like in normal life you guffaw out loud with no pretension (some even snort out loud) and smile with your gums , teeth and everything else showing. But suddenly someone says “Smile for the Camera!“, and you freeze- just tilt your head that exact 30 degree angle, give a coy smile, suck in your breath (and your tummy)  and give that perfectly ‘Posed to be natural look‘. Well Revlon claims, that with their Photoready BB Cream you shall always be photoready atleast skin wise  (ofcourse you will still have to suck in your tummy, no bb cream can help you with that girlie).

According to Revlon this Silver bottled cutie will take you to the moon and back (if you beee, if you beee my baaabyyy!- I miss Savage Garden) . They claim it “hydrates like a moisturizer, smoothes like a primer, covers like a foundation, blurs flaws like concealer and protects with SPF 30 like sunscreen”

What i say:

Hydrates like a moisturizer: For sure !!! Consistency is actually thicker than usual lightweight bb creams and it definitely hydrates, but probably for oily skin girls i think the consistency may be too heavy and may cause shininess. For dry skin like mine, the hydration is a welcome relief

Covers like a foundation: Are you kidding me? It hardly gives ANY coverage. Like minimal bare amount, tinted moisturizer equivalent of coverage- it can cover up some redness but very little else. I did try to build up the coverage but zip- nada-no can do mister !

Blurs flaws like a concealer: No Way.

Smoothes like a primer: It does blur pores which is nice

Protects like a sunscreen: Yeah, with SPF 30 i guess it does that !

Shade i got: Medium



  • For dry skinned cuties, you will like the hydration it provides
  • Does tend to blur some open pores and cover redness
  • SPF 30 is an added bonus


  • Very sheer coverage that cannot be built up – results in a bild up of product but not coverage.
  • The texture is on the thicker side, and for oily skinned girls it might be  is too hydrating and can cause oilyness



Scary No makeup face:revlon-photo-ready-bbcream

Verdict:  B

Price: Rs 550/-

Recommendation: The Revlon Photoready BB Cream gives very very sheer coverage that cannot be built up. If you have dry skin and are looking for just a barely there tinted moisturizer that covers mostly redness  you may want to check this out because it also has SPF 30, but otherwise  skip this. Too sheer, and too hydrating for oily/combination skin.

Even i disliked it so much

I think it will suit me fine. I have dry skin and I don’t need lot of coverage.
I like the moisturizing part. Coz many BB Creams dry me out. Yes some CC Creams works coz of the formula.
How many colors are they available in?

Looks like a very sheer tinted moisturizer. You know, I wish the BB creams from the Korean brands were available here. I somehow feel like none of them work as they do. xx

I wish these brands will stop selling tinted moisturizers as BB creams!


Shreya October 1, 2013 at 12:50 pm

You look so pretty even without makeup. Would love to try this BB cream as I like sheer coverage products


Bipasha October 1, 2013 at 1:38 pm

Yeah this is not for oily skin, it made me so oily that I thought I might put some pakodas in my face and them :D

I wish I had perfect skin like you to be able to get away with such low coverage :( Not for me!

Supria October 1, 2013 at 3:31 pm

I can hardly see a difference between your before and after which means no coverage whatsover! Not that you need it, you have pretty good skin :)

sadly this does not live up to the mark of revlon’s base makeup which are otherwise cult favourites. :(

Anybody tried the Body Shop BB cream? I have it and I like it. I’ve got oily skin and it doesn’t make it any oilier than normal. Gives a nice just-washed-face kind of look. Does tend to rub off on tissues though which can be an issue if you’ve oily skin and wipe your face often. Doesn’t do any concealing job on my dark circles, though I can’t say much about coverage on the rest of the face, I don’t need much there.

when I was looking for a BB Cream, I was confused between Revlon one and L’Oreal one. Thank God I went for the L’Oreal one :)


Tiny October 2, 2013 at 3:36 pm

I am yet to find suitable BB cream for me, so far I tried maybelline BB cream which was such a dud. then I switched to Loreal Dermo Expertise UV perfect spf 50 which gives somewhat coverage like tinted moisturiser, yet it makes my skin pretty oily ! Recently I got F&L BB cream, but haven’t tried yet though!
I was thinking of getting the newly launched Loreal /Revlon BBs..but now I need to think again.


Sangeeta October 2, 2013 at 6:15 pm

So many BB creams in the market these days. Would you compare it to L’Oreal UV Perfect?


mehak October 2, 2013 at 10:39 pm

Loreal UV perfect bb cream? iv heard good things abot that on actually


Sangeeta October 2, 2013 at 10:51 pm

My bad. Was referring to the even complexion cream.
That aside, I’m quite interested to try their BB cream as well.
