Rite Aid BB Cream, Miracle Illusion, Razors and Makeup Remover - Review + GIVEAWAY!

So last week, my fiance and I got into an argument because he found this jogger stroller we actually both really liked at Burlington Coat Factory. It was perfect: jogger (like he wanted), came with a car seat (like I wanted) and was super light (like we both wanted). Until I saw who made it. Actually, that's the whole issue: I never heard of the brand. I was immediately turned off and told Ant we should keep looking because I didn't feel comfortable using a brand that wasn't greatly talked about. Until Rite Aid showed me the light...

Now, Rite Aid itself is obviously well known but I rarely hear anything about their own beauty brand products. Let's see if they match up to name brand products. 

  • Rite Aid Renewal BB Cream - Comparable to Garnier Skin Renew Miracle Skin Perfector BB Cream
  • Rite Aid Renewal Miracle Illusion - Comparable to L'Oreal Revitalift Miracle Blur
  • Rite Aid Renewal Men's 5 Blade Razor with Trimmer - Comparable to Gillette Fusion for Men
  • Rite Aid Renewal Women's 5 Blade Razor - Comparable to Venus Embrace
  • Rite Aid Renewal Nightime Calming Makeup Remover Towelettes
Rite Aid brand products offer the same quality as a national brand at prices that are 30% less. I'm always up for a good dupe! They're always 100% guaranteed so if you're not satisfied, you can always take it back (with a receipt of course!).

Rite Aid Renewal BB Cream in Light/Medium
This BB cream is an all-in-one beauty balm. It helps even skin tones, brightens, moisturizes, protects and contains Vitamin C and mineral pigments. Contains SPF 15. Right off the bat, I noticed it's definitely more "medium" than it is "light" pigmented which is a bit of a bummer to my pale friends (myself included). The color really only worked for me when I was self-tanned. That being said, when I was self-tanned, the coverage was nice and light and left my skin feeling smooth. Unfortunately, I've never tried Garnier's BB cream so I can't make a comparison.

Rite Aid Renewal Miracle Illusion
The Miracle Illusion works as a primer to blur the look of wrinkles, lines and pores - all with an SPF of 30. I had much better luck with this! It has the same consistency of of the L'Oreal RevitaLift Miracle Blur (thick) and takes some time to blend in. It did seem to "blur" the pores on my face a bit or at least make them appear smaller. It smells a tiny bit like plastic but it isn't really significant. My nose could just be super sensitive. 

Rite Aid Renewal Men's 5 Blade Razor with Trimmer
Unfortunately, my fiance doesn't use real razors because he breaks out easily but I use men's razors as often as I use razors made for women so I decided to test this out. This razor is a 5-blade razor with trimmer plus extra cartridges. I really liked shaving with this and would say it is comparable to the Gillette Fusion. No nicks, no burns.

Rite Aid Renewal Women's 5 Blade Razor
The Venus Embrace is actually my go-to razor (when I'm not using men's razors) so I was pretty excited to compare the two. I actually fell in love with this. It was smooth to shave with and I didn't experience any nicking or burning. Love! Unfortunately, someone threw it out on me (#livingwithparentsprobs) so I don't have a picture of it but I highly recommend trying this out before dishing out money for a Venus!

Rite Aid Renewal Nighttime Calming Makeup Remover Towelettes
These are my new favorite makeup remover wipes! I've used just about every kind of towelettes out there to remove my makeup but it always seemed like they left makeup behind. After wiping my face with one of these, I was surprised to see how much was on it! It even removed my waterproof mascara and eyeliner. I loved that it didn't leave my face feeling raw or stingy but rather smooth and refreshed. I don't know why I spent WAY more money on towelettes that do less of a job for more money.

Now I want to know what YOUR favorite Rite Aid beauty favorite it is and why you love it. Comment below with your answer to enter for a chance to win a year's supply of a Rite Aid brand beauty product for my readers. Giveaway will run from 3/20 - 3/30!

  22. We don't have Rite Aid in Florida. :( I do know though that "generic" type products are usually made by the same companies that make the regular products. So, the quality probably isn't that bad. I do use the CVS face wipes & they're really good! Thank-you!
