The French Pharmacy brand La Roche-Posay has to be one of my favourite skincare brands of all time. I am a regular user of their Serozinc mist, and their very well known Effaclar Duo skin serum. I think I will be forever re-purchasing those!
But when I got the chance to review their BB cream, I must say I was a little sceptical...and that was because I have never found one BB or CC cream I liked, they never worked with my skin, always looked patchy and even the lightest shades looked orange on my skin and i'm not even really that pale.
So I did kind of give up on trying them, but seen as it was one of my favourite brands it was worth another shot right?
This La Roche-Posay Effaclar BB blur claims to do the following ...
- Blur the appearance of pores, blemishes and fine lines.
- Absorb oil.
- Control shine and protect against humidity with it's blotting paper effect.
- Active colour match pigments to match your skin
- Erases imperfections while leaving a radiant, flawless finish.
This is suitable for even the most sensitive of skins, which is great if you suffer from breakouts and dry skin like I can.
I have been testing this for a few weeks now to see how my skin reacts properly to it, and i'm very impressed. This product has a very light, almost whipped cream texture to it and applies easily to the skin. At fist glance of the shade I was like oh no this lightest shade still looks too dark for my skin, but once rubbed in it was perfect ...YAY! it is very much a matte finish and feels very velvety on the skin, almost how it would feel when you add a primer.
