La Roche Posay BB Blur



Since January I have been religious with my skincare routine, even after really late nights where the last thing I have wanted to do is a 15 minute facial, I've stuck with it. Luckily I've seen a lot of changes in my skin. For as long as I can remember I've been that girl with bad skin, it is oily/ dehydrated with quite visible pores and blackheads, which if I'm honest, does make it difficult to leave the house bare faced. Luckily really noticeable blemishes are pretty much a thing of the past (apart from this week, there is a monster on my chin), so I'm needing a little less coverage than the usual medium coverage base I would reach for day to day.

After seeing all the hype I decided to try the La Roche Posay BB Blur (on sale at the minute on Escentual!). This is a mousse foundation that has a really light texture, I find it to blend really well with both a buffing brush or my fingers. Lots of people don't like this, but it is a silicone based formula, so on the days where my skin is really dehydrated I stay well away. However when my skin is more oily, this is perfect. It does a really good job at blurring the pores on my cheeks and nose, it is so refreshing being able to wear a foundation that isn't like a mask but just targets the one area I need the most help with. My T-Zone has a lot more excess oil than the rest of my face, so this foundation doesn't keep the shine away for as long here, but that is after around 6 hours of wear which I'm happy with considering how lightweight it feels.

So if you have dry skin I would say it's a no go, but for anyone with oily skin, add this to your makeup bag and thank me later (especially the holiday makeup bag!)

What are your favourite lightweight bases?

  1. This sounds like it would work really well in summer, sadly the weather is getting cooler in Melbourne and that means I'm getting my winter skin (aka dry as a bone) so I don't think this would work for me. I would like to try a few more things from La Roche Posay in general tough.

    1. Aw you'll have to try it next year, or maybe use a really good moisturiser under it! I love La Roche Posay, it is such a good affordable brand x

  4. Once I hydrate my skin well before hand this glides on so effortlessly. I was surprised at how much I loved it since I expected it to be suited to oily skin types only x

    1. That's so good, yes I thought it wouldn't have been as good on a dryer skin type but I'm glad it worked to you, even more of an amazing base now! x

    1. Yeah it is pretty matte, although Alina commented above and she had dry skin and said that she loves it! So maybe it could really suit you :) x
