Typically, I use a heavier foundation because I have blemished skin and scars left from acne during my teenage years - however recently I have been trying and testing lighter foundations and BB creams which help my skin look smooth and clear without clogging up pores.
I previously reviewed La Roche-Posay Effaclar Mat (three years ago now - where has the time gone?!) and I really enjoyed using the product which in turn converted me to be a fan of the brand. French Pharmacy at its best, La Roche-Posay has over 30 years of experience working with dermatologists throughout the world to invent skincare and makeup products which meet the needs and requirements of all types of skin. The brand has become a leading player when it comes to developing products specifically formulated for sensitive skin - high tolerance and safety come high on their list when working with new products.
The Effaclar BB Blur works like a real life Instagram filter - it blurs the appearance of pores, blemishes and fine lines whilst absorbing oils throughout the day.

BB Blur is specifically tailored for oily skin (works great for someone like me who has combination skin) - using Aircilium, a cutting edge ingredient which forms a supple yet resistant film over your skin. This film allows skin to breathe - so don't be afraid of clogged pores! In fact, since switching to BB Blur my skin has less blemishes and spots.
Effaclar BB Blur is suitable for the most sensitive of skin, and the formula contains shade adapting pigments that work on application - now this was really interesting for me.

When I first applied BB Blur, I was so disappointed that the shade was so dark and I was pretty sure I would not be able to wear it. But once applied on to my face the shade blended in to my skin to perfection! It's magical, honestly.
La Roche-Posay Effaclar BB Blur is paraben and oil free, and non-comedogenic, scoring it a massive 10/10 from me. I used this BB cream every day and especially am loving it now that the weather is getting hot because it keeps my skin looking healthy, smooth and best of all glowing - but never p
