I still love BB creams – if you remember my series from the summer, I had a ‘Battle of the BB Creams’ where I pitted various brand name BB creams against each other to determine the best of the best. Now, I’ve come across another yet another amazing BB cream. Does it stand up against the other BB creams out there? Read on!

Available: Exclusively at drugstores and pharmacies across Canada
What It Claims: “…evens skin tone; boosts radiance; conceals redness, flaws and imperfections; reduce the look of pores and fine lines; SPF20; hypoallergenic…”
Available In: Two Shades (Light & Medium)
Review: Vichy Laboratories is one of those brands that puts so much scientific analysis and dedication into their products. Therefore, I knew the quality of these BB creams was going to be substantive. And, as I anticipated, I wasn’t wrong – this BB cream is great!
The cream almost glides onto the skin – it’s not as thick as foundation, but it provides just enough coverage to cover up imperfections and flaws (as always, for major marks, you may need a bit of concealer overtop / underneath). The BB cream is airy enough to allow your pores to breathe. I also enjoyed the fact that it almost ‘mattified’ my skin – it evened out everything I wanted it to even out, without making my skin an oily mess. As the day wore on, the product stayed put, and my skin seemed ‘soft’ and ‘dewy’.
|(R) to (L) – Light and Medium|
Lucky for me, the Light was a perfect match of my skin (I’m immensely pale). The Medium is just a tad darker than the Light (almost like a self-tanner), so the only drawback is that there is a very limited range of tones available. I’m hoping that they release different shades in the future.
Final Verdict: Very good BB cream! I enjoyed the long lasting coverage and the dewy, soft look it gave my skin. I think Vichy has provided a solid BB cream in a growing market, and I think it provides a little bit more ‘bonus’ items that others creams (i.e. SPF, hypoallergenic, paraben free, etc). Check it out!
