Review: Vichy Idéalia BB Cream

You are all aware of my ongoing search for the perfect BB Cream, because I love the idea of what they claim to achieve, but as of yet none I've tried have quite lived up to the mark. Until now...

Okay sorry for the dramatic intro sentence, but seriously, I think the search for the perfect Bb Cream. could be over for me! Introducing, the Vichy Idéalia BB Cream! This cream claims to have a 6-in-1 formula, providing luminosity, hydration, wrinkle smoothing, texture refinement, reduction of dark spots and SPF25 with advanced UVA/UVB protection. That's a lot of benefits, and I have to say, I agree with them all!

The texture of the cream is nice and smooth and fairly thin, making it very easy to apply and blend in. It also takes very little product to cover your whole face because it really stretches far. It is easily applied with any brush or even your fingers - my favourite method is my Real Techniques Buffing Brush because it helps me to achieve a flawless, natural look. Coverage is also amazing, blurring out most minor imperfections and dark under eye circles even without concealer! For fuss free days, I love to apply it quickly and go without worrying about imperfections peeking through. The shade I bought is "Light", which I think will match most light skin tones because it appears to blend in wonderfully. The other option is "Medium", which is quite a few shades darker.

When applying this BB Cream, it feels refreshing on the skin and actually feels like moisturiser when you touch your face after it is applied. It really doesn't feel like you're wearing makeup at all. It stays on all day without budging, which is pretty impressive for a BB Cream, and gives your skin a flawless, natural look. I find that less is more with this stuff, because it can be almost imperceptible if you apply only what you need, but it can definitely be built up for more coverage.

As for the finish, it illuminates the skin in a very subtle way, so it looks as though you've just moisturised your skin. Don't worry, there's no horrible glitter action going on, just a nice dewy finish. I have combination skin, so I always feel better after applying a little powder over any makeup I wear. Although this BB Cream doesn't make my skin oily, it doesn't mattify it either, so powder is necessary. You can also powder over it to adjust how dewy you want it to be.

I mostly use this BB Cream alone as my main face makeup, but it also works really well as a base for other makeup too. The high sun protection factor makes this product an absolute essential for me throughout the summer, and I can even see myself using it in the other seasons too.

Essentially, this lovely little pink tube provides you with effortless, natural skin, and I think it's safe to say my search for the perfect BB Cream could be over! A 40ml tube costs £21, but you can find it cheaper on various websites.
