La Roche-Posay Effaclar BB Blur

There are so many amazing products coming from La Roche-Posay right now, it is hard to decide what I love more. There is one product that I have been wearing daily since we were introduced and that is the BB Blur.

Having tried numerous BB, CC and DD creams, I have never really settled on a BB cream that I have wanted to keep on purchasing until now. Effaclar BB Blur is said to not only blur the appearance of pores, blemishes and fine lines but also absorb excess oil all day long - something which excited me incredibly and it has SPF20!

So, I already love that this product has been specifically tailored for oily skin and from using it for the past 5 weeks, not only does BB Blur provide all day-long control of shine, I don't even feel the need to re-apply it. It comes with an impressive list of sciencey sounding ingredients such as Aircilium and Perlite but thankfully they are a little easier to explain their function than it is to say their name. Aircilium is described as being a cutting-edge ingredient that forms a supple and resistant film over the skin that smoothes its surface whilst letting it breathe and it is said to absorbs an amazing 3 times its weight in oil,! So the secret is out as to how I manage to keep my skin looking matte rather than a shiney oil slick! Perlite is composed of silica that is 5 times more powerful than talc, and protects against humidity with its continuous blotting paper effect. Suitable for the most sensitive of skin, the skin-perfecting formula contains blurring technology that scatters light to visibly fade pores and fine lines. Add to that, this cream mousse contains shade adapting pigments that work to colour match the skin on application, whilst providing medium coverage that will erase imperfections and leave a radiant, flawless finish. What's not to love?

It is currently only available in two shades Fair/Light and Light/Medium and I have Fair/Light which is pretty perfect for my skin tone and I am very pale. With a mousse like formula, this product is one of those that I begin to apply using my fingers and then use my buffing brush to complete the application. It is easy to apply and for me, it gives just the right amount of coverage that I am happy with and if I am in a rush and haven't had time to finish my make-up, I am confident enough that this BB Blur is enough for me to wear.

I have also mentioned in a few reviews that I have a love for blemish covering products, be they from Primark or Makeup Revolution, and this BB Blur goes some way to be its own little blemish cover and it is working progress to get to the stage where I am happy enough I am covered fully.

So the time has come to bin all of your BB and CC creams and head on over to La Roche-Posays BB Blur because I am yet to try anything that comes anywhere close to being as amazing as this is and it is currently on offer for just £11 on Escentual, which is an absolute bargain that has seen me multi-purchase it so I don't run out!
