La Roche-Posay Effaclar BB Blur Anti-Shine Unifier

Suitable for combination to oily skin, the new La Roche Posay's Effaclar BB Blur associate the unifying action of a Beauty Balm with a breakthrough optical effect (BLUR). This product is supposed to mattify skin all day long and blurs the look of pores and imperfections!

The BB Blur is available in 2 shades, Light and Medium. I have the shade Medium which is a bit light for me at the moment (Medium is similar to NC30) but I can make it work with some bronzer. If you are familiar with La Roche-Posay's Hydreane BB Creme, the Medium shade is darker and more pink than the BB Blur in Medium.

When I used it for the first time, I was surprised to find out that this isn't a cream or liquid foundation. The texture is pretty cool, it has a mousse consistency! It blends on the skin easily and has a silky smooth finish, but it's important to note that the main ingredient in this product is dimethicone (silicon).

The La Roche-Posay Hydreane BB Creme I tried 2 years ago didn't give much coverage and didn't impress me either (let's just say it wasn't the best formula for my oily skin). This one was a nice surprise though! It gives medium coverage so I need to apply some concealer on blemishes, but it unify the complexion and provides a beautiful velvety matte finish.

Despite the fact that this product contains silicones and vitamine E (these 2 ingredients can sometimes feel oily on the skin), it did help to mattify my skin and instantly blur the appearance of pores! It's not a foundation that has enough staying power to last all day on its own though, so I suggest to set it with powder, especially if your skin is very oily.

The La Roche-Posay Effaclar BB Blur Anti-Shine Unifier retail for $30 CAD for 30ml.
