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.La Roche Posay Effaclar BB Blur
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.

I really want to try this out i did a blog post on this when the press release came out and it sounded great because i have super combo skin so thought maybe this would be good for me
I have this but haven’t tried it yet, I have normal skin so don’t know how great it will be on me
I have oily skin and get oily with everything, but I want to trust this bb as La Roche Posay do amazing skincare! Thank you for this preview!
I really love this! I do wish they had more colours though..
I’ve got a tube of this and I love it. It does sit nicely on my 50 year old skin that’s still a bit greasy and occasionally spotty. Gorgeous matifying effect and just right coverage for me – I’m not a fan of foundation and would rather go barefaced. Until recently I have been relying on Laura Geller’s baked foundation powder.
I have the Light/Medium and it’s yellow-toned and OK on my pallid winter skin, warming it up fractionally. Once I’ve seen a few rays of sunshine it will be ideal.
Equally, it’s an ‘adaptive’ cream, so once you start to rub it in there is a terrifying orange moment, but it quickly blends out evenly.
It’s a strange texture – very siliconey and moussey – but it works very well and I’m glad I have it. I think it is going to be very useful in the spring.
