Vichy Idealia BB Cream

I love the idea of BB creams, they sound lovely for the summer months. A light base with lots of added extras, they can include skin care benifits, SPF and much more. More recently you can find BB creams with a variety of finishes, something to meet the needs of every skin type and finish. I am more of a semi matt - matt finish girl,  a girl with combination skin I stay well clear of the dewy look, it does nothing for my skin type.

On first impressions I liked the packaging, a slim tube, this type of packaging travels well. I travel a lot with my job, so I like to take items that work well in that situation. I also love the colours used, my favourite colour is pink, this looks so feminie. The shade is perfect for me, I am in the shade light. I find that with some BB creams can be dark, and no amount of blending can work with my skin tone. I apply a thin layer using my F80. The finish is great, my pores look perfected, slight imperfections are covered and my skin generally looks even, glowing, but not shiny. Yippee this is the finish I want, this can be hard to find sometimes.



The added beneifits that I like about this product are:-
  • Added SPF25
  • Deeply hydrates
  • Advanced UVA/UVB protection
  • Smoothes lines, wrinkles and pores



I have blended a small amount on the top of my hand and some not blended so you can get a feel of the shade. Like I said earlier, shade 1 is perfect for my skin tone, I am fair with blonde hair. I would hightly recommend this for you pale skinned friends. If you are a darker skin tone there is a medium shade avaliable as well.




Now I hate selfies, I rarely post pictures of myself, its just not me, In fact I feel like a numptey.  But for the purpose of this post here we go. As you can see its a perfect match for me, it blends so well, covers my pores, fine lines and imperfections. It provides an even base, that smoothes my appearance. I have been enjoying the beautiful luminous finish, its simply superb. I complete my make up with a dusting of my beloved by Terry Hylauronic powder. I find my make up lasts up to 8 hours.





 

 
 I have throughly enjoyed trialing the Vichy BB cream and will certainly be repurchasing when this runs out. You can pick this up for an absolute bargain price of £16.80 at the moment due to the 20% discount at Escentual. This is the first product I have tried from the brand Vichy, I am really impressed and would love to try more from the brand.
