As you may already know, I am far from waking up every morning with a clear complexion. Some days are better, some days are worse. My skin seems to go through phases, and on days when I need a little extra help from my friends (aka the makeup stash), I like reaching for products that offer a bit of coverage to still look presentable and not scare people away. Jokes aside, I have become much more comfortable in my own skin and now often go out without any makeup on, but of course I always get that confidence boost when I know my imperfections aren't the main focus when people see me. Insert the new La Roche-Posay Effaclar BB Blur*, an anti-shine unifier that promises to blur the appearance of pores, imperfections, while keeping the skin matte. This soon to be released, all-in-one product definitely caught my attention as I could definitely benefit from its claims - so on top of this review, I decided to film a first impression video so you can see for yourself how it works!
Not too long ago, the brand came out with the Rosaliac CC Creme (reviewed here), so I was intrigued to see how Effaclar BB Blur would compare. The main difference between the two is that the first one is a cream, whereas the new BB product is a cream mousse - a consistency I have yet to try all over my face. I got mine in the light shade, however it also comes in a medium shade. It is targeted for those of us with combination to oily skin, and is oil-free, non-comedogenic, and paraben-free. See for yourself how it worked for me below!
Would I recommend it? Yes - it does what it claims, and I personally think it is one of the best BB/CC creams I have tried. It is on the pricier end for the amount of product you get, but considering the results, I think it is still worth a shot.
Interested in giving it a try? La Roche-Posay Effaclar BB Blur will hit shelves March 18th at all drugstore retailers carrying the brand here in Canada. It will retail for C$30 for 30 ml worth of product.
