The Review: La Roche-Posay Hydreane BB Creme

La Roche-Posay BB Creme (£15.00) has everything I crave for in a foundation. Here are the deets:

The plastic tube contains 40ml of product, a standard amount. The tube is handy for traveling, as it is light and the lid shuts down securely (no unpleasant surprises with this one) *insert Ross' shampoo explosion*. The product has SPF 20 and comes in a light and medium shade.

"Melts in the skin for an immediately unified, even and fresh-faced complexion". It does all of this and more. Usually, BB cremes' lasting power isn't that great. This one lasts all day. Perfect for Summer, when things get a little bit oilier - read greasier - on the T-zone front.

You can use this as your moisturizer, but I tend to put some on before applying this product with my fingers. I take a pea-size amount and rub it into my skin like moisturizer. Then I go over it with a buffing brush to make sure there are no nasty streaks.

Verdict: yay or nay?
Yay, yay, yay. This is a gorgeous product. So far, I have found not one flaw in it. It gives the right amount of coverage, is the right color match and stays put all day. What more can you want?
