Erase the Years: Revolution Pro Blur & Fine Line Filler – The Age-Defying Miracle for Your Skin - A Tried and Tested Product Review

Updated: May 19


Want to Erase the Years? In this article, I will be introducing you to the Revolution Pro BLUR & Fine Line Filler from Revolution Pro. It's something we could all do with (unless you are under 25 of course) So can it really live up to its claims? Read on to find out more

putty like formula - that melts and soften fine lines
Revolution Pro Blur & fine line filler -

Whenever - I do a wedding party of Makeups, the mother of the Bride or the Groom, or the Grandmother, or the Aunt take a look at themselves in the mirror, say 'wow, that doesn't look like me, can you do my makeup everyday and shame you couldn't get rid of these these wrinkles..." pointing to their crows feet, or lifting up their eyes.

But I know what they mean. Those blummin filtered images really don't help us not-as-young types in how we feel - see my post on The misuse of Filtering Photographs and skin retouching Apps (perfectionnailandbeauty.co.uk)

And it certainly doesn't help when Uncle Bob walks through and hollers  'ere, have you got enough polyfilla for her....?' (Northern humour)


So I have been on the lookout for something. Something that could at least soften and 'blur' out fine lines and wrinkles. Just even a little bit. I don't expect miracles. I am realistic. Something that can make them look less obvious. (Or just botox the hell out of our faces)


So I decided to give this little 'miracle ' in a pot a go, because I needed something to just soften and blur my fine lines as well as my clients.


#1: My First Impressions of Revolution Pro Blur & Fine Line filler


Very reasonably priced at £6.99 for quite an attractive 4g pot and small and dainty enough to pop in your bag.


It looks and feels like a non-greasy clear lip balm and is completely fragrance free (great for those who can't tolerate fragrances in products especially around the eyes)

And bonus - its Cruelty free & Vegan.


"Swipe. Blur. FILL. Perfect your base with the Revolution Pro Blur & Fine Line Filler - it's airbrushed skin in a pot! "


I was excited to give the Revolution Pro Blur Fine Line filler a try due its claims of 'its airbrushed skin in a pot!" I'm assuming this means as close to skin blurring as possible in actual real life. (I use Airbrush makeup in Bridal Makeup -so its not quite the same). 10 Benefits of Airbrush Makeup for Your Wedding Day (perfectionnailandbeauty.co.uk)

But the blurb states that its infused with Vitamin C & E, great for acne scars, good for smoothing pores and scars and lightweight and breathable

#2: How I used the Revolution Pro Blur Fine Line Filler


So, as instructed, I scooped a little of the Blur & Fine line filler onto my fingers and warmed it up first then lightly applied it with my ring finger (this is the most gentlest of your digits and won't drag at delicate skin) around my eyes, on the little scar on the side of my mouth, a little on the scars under my neck and onto the open pores on my chin and sides of nose/cheeks. Then proceeded with a tinted moisturiser and concealer. Personally, I think it can be worn over makeup too, in the places that really bother you more, or if you have forgotten to apply it before base/foundation. It lies over the skin like an invisible veil. I also found that it does work as a nice base around the lips if you like to slightly overline them. And true to their claims, it is incredibly lightweight and non drying (unlike some line and wrinkle smoothers I've tried in the past). I think it should be worn over your current primer and used in target areas only. I have yet to try it out on my brides families or my slightly maturer brides (I am in that bracket too).

#3: Pros and Cons Of Revolution Pro Blur & Fine Line Filler


Pro's

The Revolution Pro Blur & Fine line filler does indeed smooth and 'blur' skin imperfections, especially fine lines, open pores and mild acne scarring.

Lightweight and easy to use

Non greasy so no product slippage.

Non drying - it doesn't look like a film on the skin.

Seriously reasonably priced. There will be higher priced products that will do the exact same job. Worth a try at £6.99 - you can find it here if you're interested https://tidd.ly/3UMnJ8q



Con's

If its cold it can be quite difficult to soften in fingers.

Will lightly blur deep lines and deep scarring but not completely smooth these kind of skin imperfections (be realistic with your expectations)

It is a 'fine line' filler not a 'wrinkle' filler.

For deeper lines and large open pores/ deep scarring - this might not give you the results you were hoping for.

As its a supple, pliable product - if you smile, the lines around the eyes or lips will still be visible (its not botox - again be realistic in what you expect from the product)

Struggling to find any more cons with it.

Revolution Pro have paired the 'Blur' with Revolution Revolution Pro Blur Foundation Stick Light. Something I may try in the future.



#4: My thoughts on the Revolution Pro Blur & Fine Line Filler...


I'm a fully qualified Beauty Therapist, Makeup Artist and a Nail tech has been, and have been part of the beauty industry for, um, years. Like 30 years now.

I love to find solutions to problems. Because I need them too. So if I like something. I will spread the word. my deep scar is still visible, but it is 'blurred' So I would say the Revolution Pro Blur is something I would definitely recommend to try. It feels nice, it lightly diffuses those fine lines and smooths out those pores and would definitely use it on my wedding parties. It's-not quite the polyfilla that Uncle Bob suggested and sure the Mums, Aunts and Grandmothers will still pull themselves to bits and say 'wish I could get rid of these jowells' cos hey, it's what we do. (I go back to my earlier comment on filtered images that makes us hate ourselves sometimes.

But I know they will look fabulous and love themselves when they see themselves in the professional pics.

I give it 3.5/5 Canny good. (which is good) and I've since purchased some for my Mum.
