La Roche Posay Effaclar BB Blur

I could never wear foundation on a daily basis for a number of reasons: 1. Pure laziness, 2. Foundation has previously caused breakouts on my face, and 3. I like my skin to be able to breathe. However, I do suffer from the odd spot so I do need some coverage every now and then to conceal any marks. 

La Roche Posay's Effaclar BB Blur offers a lightweight coverage to conceal the appearance of blemishes and dark spots. I've been using it for 3 days and I think it's fantastic!

The first thing I noticed was that the colour is very forgiving and so it matches perfectly on my skin despite the colour of the formula itself. When I first applied some on the back of my hand, I thought it would be way too dark for me, but it was absolutely fine). I use it as a concealer for the blemish marks on my cheeks and it doesn't look mismatched at all. Initially, I used a buffing brush to apply it but then I found that there's no need as I can just use my fingers. 

The formula contains 2 key ingredients: Airlicium (to combat skin imperfections and shine by mattifying the skin), and Perlite (to tackle humidity, and soak up sweat and shine). 

I also apply it on my t-zone as it can get quite oily during the day, and it kept this area matte and controlled shine for a lot longer than usual. The Airlicium allows the product to absorb 3x more oil from the skin. I did have to re-apply a little in the evening, but the BB Blur has made a big difference as my t-zone usually became oily by lunchtime.

Whilst offering a natural look and glow, BB Blur also conceals the appearance of fine lines and pores. The feel to it is incredibly lightweight so it doesn't feel too heavy or greasy, and absorbs the oil from your skin for the majority of the day. 

This is definitely something I'll be stocking up on. I spend a lot of money and time on my skincare routine to tackle my oily and shiny skin, and it was so annoying that my skin would become oily and shiny during the day. But now- thanks to La Roche Posay's BB Blur- my skin looks and feels amazingly matte. 

La Roche Posay's Effaclar BB Blur is priced at £16.50 and can be purchased from
