Nanoblur-Save your dollars

As a mom of two babies, I obviously have little time to get myself dressed, but as I’ve mentioned before, I put extreme importance on making sure that I do get a chance to put on some makeup and clothes that make me feel good. I’m always looking for things that will shorten the process. After seeing way too many advertisements for a product called Nanoblur-I decided I needed to give it a try. Supposedly, this “light as air” product can take your face from blotchy and uneven to peaches and cream complexion within 40 seconds. It insinuates that it can make you look 10 years younger by eliminating the look of fine lines and wrinkles. Sold!

Could it be that something could really do this? All the before and after pictures look like it could be possible, so off I went to purchase it. I didn’t have to look too far, I found it at Wal-Mart. The idea is that the technology reflects light in such a way that it makes your skin seem perfect. I was excited. It is clear, and has the feel of a primer, kind of a velvety texture.  I love makeup, but simple and quick beats out pretty and colorful these days. If I can look even toned and well rested (minus a few fine lines) in 40 seconds, I’ll take it!

I opened the box, and read the leaflet (I always read leaflets, I don’t know why, but I just need to know everything there is to know about the product I’m about to use). It seemed simple enough. I applied it on my face as directed, waiting for the blotchy skin to even out, the pores to fade into nothing, and the wrinkles to disappear. My peaches and cream complexion was just seconds away! But nothing happened. Well, one thing happened. It absorbed any extra oil I may have had on my skin so it made it look matte. That’s it. It LOOKED like a primer and it FELT like a primer. It turns out this product is pretty much a primer. I didn’t throw it out as I do with many of my trial bombs, because I actually DO use primer before I put on my makeup, and I’m just about out of what I already use so this will do just fine in the meantime.

If you see the advertisement, keep flipping the page, it will not do what the pictures promise. If you are looking for a good primer that acts as a nice base for the rest of your makeup, then at about 20 dollars a tube, this could be cheaper than a lot of good ones out there. Most primers (including this product) can also be applied OVER your makeup as a last step to mattify and perfect the skin.

Thanks for visiting today, hope everyone has a great weekend!
