La Roche Posay Effaclar BB Blur
If you have oily or problematic skin, then you’ll know straightaway that blur creams can be a nightmare in exacerbating the situation. La Roche Posay Effaclar BB Blur has dimethicone in it, so if silicones are your enemy, it’s one to be cautious with. If not, then you will get some very good blur results.
There are two shades (fair/light and light/medium) and it’s so much a better idea to have blur and tint in one product than layering up. I find if you put blur products on with a face brush (I use Artis or MAC) you will get a better finished result. La Roche Posay Effaclar BB Blur contains light diffusers so an even and perfected finish will only do good things. Key ingredients are Perlite (said to be five times more absorbing power than talc with a bit of humidity protection thrown in), Airlicium, elastic gel polymers that absorb three times their own weight in oil, and BB pigments.
I don’t have oily skin, so it’s impossible for me to test for that – I love the finish that makes skin feel silky smooth and really think it’s a highly age-inclusive product that won’t exacerbate exisiting issues with oil and breakouts. La Roche Posay Effaclar BB Blur launches in January 2016 for £16.50.
