    Comments about La Roche-Posay Effaclar BB Blur:

    I received a sample of this somehow and was not expecting the amazing results I got with it. I've been hunting for something to help control my oily nose forEVER- I don't even know if that's what this is specifically meant for, but for the first time my highlighting is actually effective because it's not competing with the shine coming off my face. I could not be happier- I've finally found something that works!

        The only complaint I have is that it is a dark color, even the light/medium is too dark for my fair skin. I blend it with a little lotion or concealer to lighten it up and that solves the problem for me.

          good but not amazing

          By tor

          Comments about La Roche-Posay Effaclar BB Blur:

          I got this as a sample and fell in love. It is a very unique product with a very moussey and light texture. It does feel like it sits more on the skin than absorbs into it like my it cosmetics cc. I was hoping this would be amazing for summertime for my extremely oily skin, however it just doesn't have the lasting power. Great for a quick go to the grocery store as it blurs great. Since it does sit on the skin it moves around a fair amount on my skin too. I will be using the rest of it over the summer as I don't think it's a bad product at all- just don't expect it to last all day (even with setting with a powder) and it only kept my oil at bay for maybe an extra hour.

                I have oily, sensitive skin. I use Retin-A from my Dermatologist. I was looking for a cream with a tint and SPF that would blend easily and look natural. This did not work for me because it stays on top of your skim and gives you no moisture for the dry patches.

                    After buying YSL's BB cream for 50$ I figured that nothing would compare, but I was completely wrong. An Ulta employee told me she uses this when she goes to the gym and even though I trusted her opinion I was skeptical. This creamy soufle like makeup only needs a small amount for your face. I use it every day and every day I get compliments I kid you not. I have acne and red bumps and black heads all alike and this erases it all and leaves me with a photoshopped smooth finish on my face.

                      the only problem is the limited shade range but can be used before mineral powder foundation and color can be adjusted if you add cover fx custom cover drops. Its a mousse texture like Tarte's amazonian clay foundation and Tarte's bb primer.

                      • 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?

                          Yes, you can absolutely layer Effaclar BB Blur over Effaclar Mat Oil-Free Mattifying Moisturizer - this is a great combo for combination skin! Both products are lightweight, so you won't experience any heavy or greasy feel.

                          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!
