      Use as my everyday foundation. Mouse texture blends out quickly and blurs imperfections. SPF is good for everyday. Wish they had more color options but the light to med works well for me.

        I was debating at first to purchase this because of the price but since I saw good reviews I gave it a try. I don't regret buying it at all, the one thing I really do like is that it doesn't leave my nose oily like the bb cream covergirl does so that's plus. It's a small tube but it goes a long way cuz you don't need much. I been using it everyday.

                    Comments about La Roche-Posay Effaclar BB Blur:

                    I absolutely loved how this BB cream looks and feels, it has amazing coverage which is important because I have really bad acne scarring. It actually does blur the imperfections like my usual foundation which is Mac Matchmaster (I use it with Mac studio tech concealer and Benefit porefessional primer). It did not cause breakouts either which almost everything does for me, even smashbox BB cream Maybelline dream cream (with 2% salicylic acid) makes me breakout sometimes. But there are only two shades, none of which is good for my brown skin, I've used the medium and it just looks wrong. Which is why I am giving this a 3, if there were more shades this could be the best BB cream I've used till date.

                      I was very happy with this product when I first put it on. It went on really easily, you don't need a lot at all. It provided a nice matte finish and did appear to "blur" any tiny wrinkles and evened out pigmentation. It did not, however, remain a matte finish. My face appeared oily within the hour and the evening of pigmentation did not last either. I was very disappointed in this product.

                      I love this. I use it in an everyday basis. Although I admit it doesnt replace your typical foundation due to its poor coverage. Its a good product if you dont want to use foundation everyday (thats my case). My dermatologist recommended it because I wanted a foundation that wont break me out. Its great for acne prone/oily skin.

                      • Q:

                        I am close to 50 with combination skin - dry on the edges and by mid day, very oily in the T-zone with very noticable large pores. (Acne is not a problem.) I'm looking for a skin routine that will give me the hydration I need for my aging skin, but not make me look so greasy. Can I use the Effaclar Mat as a moisturizer and then the BB Blur on top to help hide my pores? Or is there another combination of products you would recommend?

                          Effaclar BB Blur provides moderate coverage on its own when worn alone. It can be layered underneath a foundation for fuller coverage, often desired for special events photography. When worn underneath foundation, it provides priming benefits to help ensure smooth application of foundation and to help extend foundation's wear. It is compatible with foundation of all formulas. We hope this extra info helps!
