I never thought I would see the day when I would be reaching for something other than my Benefit Porefessional, I have literally sworn by it for so long that I never bother to try anything else. This is where this beaut comes in from the lovely people at Escentual, I don't think I would have tried it otherwise. La Roce-Posay is a brand I love for skin care, but I haven't really delved into their beauty range before, I'm not really sure why either.

The Effaclar BB Blur is a BB cream mousse (which is £14 by the way), it's so different compared to other BB creams I have tried. The majority have a foundation/liquid consistency and this has a mousse feel a bit like the Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse if you ever remember that?!

What it does:

Blurs your pores, blemishes and lines
Creates a smooth base/complexion
Absorbs the oil in your skin
.. it actually does these too!

You can use this either as a base for your foundation or just on it's own, but it obviously depends on what sort of coverage you like. Myself I like medium to full coverage, so a BB cream doesn't cover me enough. I just have too many scars and blemises that neeeeed hidden before I expose myself to the public. It creates the perfect base and makes my foundation last hours longer without a touch up and that's with my super oily skin.

I'm really impressed with this, it literally does exactly as it says it does and I love products like that. I know my Porefessional will still be around for simple make up days as I still love it, but if I know I'm having a busy day or a night out I'll definitely be breaking this out. It even blurred out my humongous spot at the gym tonight, phew.

Have you tried this before? What is your favourite primer/BB?
