Hello everyone. I know this BB cream is quite old and was released a while back but since I heard one particular blogger I admire rave about this, I decided to give it a try.
Firstly, the Vichy Idealia BB Cream contains SPF 25 which is great as I just use this after my moisturizer and I’m good to go, eliminating the need to use a separate spf. It is also paraben-free which is a plus point. It’s quite scented so for those of you are bothered by scented products, you might not like this.
This BB cream applies smoothly, feels hydrating and is a beautiful texture (not too thick and perfect for all skin types). As you will see from the swatch below, it gives a beautiful, natural glow and what I noticed is that it photographs beautifully. It does not really require to be topped up with a powder, however I do need a touch of powder on my t-zone after about 5 or 6 hours of wear.
I have been using it every single day for work ever since I bought it and I love it. Although it is a drugstore brand, it is not too cheap. I bought it for Dhs 170 from Boots. Unfortunately, it comes in only 2 shades- Light and Medium. I got the Medium shade which fortunately matches my skin tone perfectly.
Have any of you tried this BB cream? What are your thoughts? What is your favorite BB/CC cream?
