The product

Finding yourself constantly torn between applying brightening skin care and polishing foundation? The hybrid solution may have just arrived. And its name? The Revlon Illuminance Skin-Caring Foundation, of course.

A deeply nourishing foundation (yep, for real) that delivers both long-term skin benefits and lightweight, buildable, deliciously luminous coverage, it's basically the answer to all your biggest base dreams.

Allowing your real skin to shine through yet still blurring imperfections, the formula is specifically designed to boost hydration (thanks to hyaluronic acid and plant-derived squalane) while leaving skin supple, radiant, and silky smooth. The verdict? Well, here’s what our Review Crew® testers had to say…

The panel

Beauty Crew sent the Revlon Illuminance Skin-Caring Foundation to a panel of women aged 18 to 34 looking to increase their hydration and brightness levels. The panel identified with a variety of skin concerns including dull skin and dryness, as well as wrinkles and fine lines.

The lowdown

Here’s what the Review Crew® loved about the Revlon Illuminance Skin-Caring Foundation.

The makeup-skin care hybrid formula: Our Review Crew® were impressed to see that not only did the foundation serve as a reliable base, but it also nourished and enhanced skin below surface level, working to hydrate, smooth and plump the complexion.

The brightening coverage: The Revlon Illuminance Skin-Caring Foundation delivered exactly the kind of coverage reviewers were looking for, offering a polished face of foundation that still looked and felt natural, while also boasting a bevy of brightening benefits.

It enhanced skin tone and texture: Two of the features reviewers were happiest to discover were the foundation's tone and texture-refining abilities. Reviews mentioned a visible uplift in radiance, as well as added hydration that reduced the appearances of fine lines and wrinkles.

The verdict

"I must say, I was very excited to start using this foundation as I often struggle with dry skin. I love a medium coverage, which can sometimes be difficult to achieve when my skin is feeling a bit dry in the winter. In the time I have been using Revlon's Illuminance Skin-Caring Foundation I can really see a difference in my face staying hydrated throughout the day! The plant-derived squalane and hyaluronic acid both work so well together to ensure that the look I carefully curate in the morning lasts throughout the day and does not leave me feeling like I need to reapply. The foundation is easily buildable and I found I could achieve the right level of medium coverage that I prefer. Overall, I definitely recommend this Revlon foundation if you want to achieve natural and hydrating results that last all day!"

"I am so happy I was introduced to this foundation through the BEAUTYcrew trial. It delivers on what it claims, and even after using for a month, I have noticed a significant improvement in the texture and tone of my skin. I highly recommend Revlon Illuminance Skin-caring Foundation to anyone looking for a foundation that not only provides great coverage, and a beautiful, radiant finish, but also improves the overall health and appearance of their skin at the same time. This product is a game-changer!!"

"I have been using the Illuminance Skin-caring Foundation for a few weeks now and I am incredibly impressed with the results. This foundation not only provides great coverage, but it has also improved the overall appearance of my skin. It has a beautiful finish, without feeling cakey or heavy and I found when using with my foundation brush, it was also easy to blend. I love that this product is a hybrid of being a makeup and skin care product, thanks to the ingredients it contains that actually improve the health of my skin over time."
