L'oreal Paris La Creme True Match BB Cream

Sunday, May 31, 2015

The BB Creams , CC creams and the tinted moisturizers have taken the world by the storm. Almost all the beauty brand have their version available in the market. If you are not too keen to use foundation on a daily basis, but still require some color and coverage to pep up your skin then BB cream is your answer. These have so many things jam packed in a tiny package. They have good moisturization, sunscreen a hint of foundation what else do you need. I got this from my recent visit to NewU, I got the shade in Gold which matched my skin tone and I am ready with the review now.

L'oreal Paris La creme True Match BB Cream

This is a Skin Idealizing BB cream with SPF 35 PA +++ and provides 24 hours moisture.

Product Claims : The 1st BB cream with 360 degree skin care to idealize a natural flawless skin tone and texture, inside out.

The box details about other information like how this product re-texturize, retones and protect the skin which I am feeling very lazy to write. I am going to go to the review straight ahead.

The BB cream comes in a cream colored tube packaging with a golden screw cap which is hygienic and travel friendly and looks elegant too. This has a long list of ingredients which is almost similar to any other BB creams. Again I am feeling lazy to type them down. But the ingredients of notice would be Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin CG. The product has a very runny consistency and smells a bit chemical.


I have a little imperfections here and there which are the remnants of previous acnes, and I wanted something which would provide some coverage to those imperfections and also keep my skin moisturized without very heavy feeling, which would be fast and simple without much effort.So BB creams are the perfect solutions. 

I apply the cream after cleansing and toning my face. The texture is light weight gets absorbed but I have noticed that this leaves behind a white cast on the face and does not photograph well. If you apply too much your face would look white washed, or too little then it would not give any coverage at all. If applying in a very hot and humid climate, then the product starts to melt off, you would definitely need a setting powder to set it. This settles in pores and creases. As part of the moisturization, it did fair well in that section. If you have an oily skin and wish to use this in summer, then you would not like it for sure. The dry skinned ladies might find it good.

The perfect way to use this to avoid white cast is to dab on a little concealer over my imperfections and then apply a very little quantity of this BB cream all over face. I set it with my Kryolan translucent Powder. I don't find time to do all that every morning before heading out for office. So this did not serve the purpose I was looking for.

The choices of shades are very limited, and the shades available would not match for dusky ladies. I just wished they had more options.

Price : Rs 595 for 30 ml.

I have heard that the Maybelline BB stick is good and provides good coverage, I might try that one out.

To sum it up, if you have dry skin and you are very fair, then this BB cream might suit you. If you have oily and flawless skin then you can use this only during the winter or in climate controlled area. If you have imperfections that you wish to hide it a bit, then this would not work for you. It did not work for me the way I wanted it to, so I am not going to re-purchase this again.
