You might be familiar with la Roche Posay and their famous skin care line. I am a big fan of most of their Effaclar
line and use them regularly in my skincare routine, so I was excited
when I was given the chance to test out their new BB Cream and see what
they did with the concept.
La Roche Posay Hydreane BB Cream moisturizes, soothes, protects and evens out sensitive skins while concealing
redness, calming, comforting, and brightening complexions. The product
is the first of its kind to contain thermal water.
The BB Cream is available in two shades: Light and Medium. I am a light
and the colour seems to be a close match for my NC20 skin. Speaking of
colour, the shade has a slight pink/neutral undertone and it actually
looks very natural and flattering on the skin. The cream is very rich,
making it suitable for dry skin types. At first I was nervous when I
applied it, it felt so rich and I feared it might be a way too
moisturizing for my combo skin. The cream turned out to be hydrating yet
it lasted reasonably well through the day, it didn`t melt or break apart even in my dangerous T-zone area.
pigmentation of the product is light to medium. I like how I can work
the cream in with my fingers and manage to get a decent natural
coverage. You can still see some of my imperfection,s as it lets the
skin show through, but everything is blurred and a bit of concealer
usually takes care of the major problems. I found I don`t need to
bother with any sort of moisturizer under this. The cream is rich enough
as it is.
This is a product I like to apply when I go to the library or grocery
shopping, on days when I don`t want to spend more than 5 minutes on
evening out my skin tone, when I want my skin to look nice and youthful
and fresh but not have that made-up look.
Overall, I enjoy this BB Cream. It`s not HG status but I can appreciate
it now, during the cold weather when my skin gets all dry and needs
extra moisture. The finish and coverage are light and natural, it
manages to blur and cover small imperfections and it is very rich and
hydrating, making it a great option for those with dry and dehydrated
