Now I know that there are a lot of BB Creams out there. I am yet to try one myself but it looks like I am going to get to!! I have only heard of the version that started the craze which is out of Asia.
Just what is L’Oréal Paris Youth Code BB Cream Illuminator all about? From what I understand from doing some checking around its one of the newer ones to hit the market. People who have tried say the biggest issue seems to be that its only SPF15 which is a bummer. I wear sunscreen SPF25 so yea that is a bit light on the sunscreen side. (easy fit wear skincare with SPF in it as well)
L’Oréal Paris Youth Code BB Cream Illuminator:
Inspired by the BB cream and beauty balm trend in Asia, this innovative all-in-one skincare solution evens, illuminates, perfects, corrects and moisturizes in one step, ultimately revealing beautiful, luminous skin. With light-reflecting particles and a hint of tint, Youth Code BB Cream Illuminator provides instant luminosity, while visibly improving uneven skin tone. Instead of simply camouflaging imperfections, the multi-tasking formula also provides 24-hour hydration and SPF 15 protection against damaging UV rays. Over time, skin tone and texture are improved and skin is healthier looking. The soft, creamy texture of the Youth Code BB Cream Illuminator provides even-looking skin from day to night.
Vitamin B3 – Skin-brightening ingredient Vitamin CG – Active antioxidant to help brighten skin Pro-Cysteine – Antioxidant that works to protect skin from daily exposure to environmental aggressions Chestnut Seed Extract (Recoverine) – Promotes natural skin exfoliation Bismuth Oxichloride – Provides an immediate lightening effect Hyaluronic Acid Microspheres – They retain and absorb water even under low humidity conditions
· Instant Luminosity – Light-reflecting particles immediately illuminate skin · Skincare Benefits – Broad spectrum SPF 15 protects, while Glycerin & Hyaluronic Microspheres contribute to 24-hour moisturization · Premium Formula – A fresh, light floral scent and creamy texture offer a luxurious skincare experience Safe for All Skin Types – Formulated for daily application on all skin types, including sensitive skin · Universal Tint – Two light-coverage shades work for most skin tones
Now I don’t care for the fact it has Bismuth Oxichloride because I don’t believe it needs to be in skincare products, but that just my opinion. It comes in only two colors. Light which is the one for me, and medium. Its going to be interesting test it out for myself.. From what I been reading as I was looking around some feel its just a tinted moisturizer others can’t stop singing its praises.
What do you think? Have you tried it yet?
