As you know from my post earlier this month I got to receive L’Oréal Paris Youth Code BB Cream Illuminator for review. Now for starters I am a low maintenance kind of a gal. I don’t go around wearing full makeup like you see folks do. I tend to wear as little makeup as possible. So for me I wear mineral foundation because its light on my skin. I also wear sunscreen, so I am pale as they come. When I got my L’Oréal Paris Youth Code BB Cream Illuminator in Light I was surprised I guess at just how light it really is. As in light in color as well as light in how it feels on your skin.
Here is a recap of what is in it and the ingredients.
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.
When I first put a little on my hand to see what it looked like, also to see how it feels. I really dislike heavy foundation of any type. After applying it to my hand I rubbed it in to see. It really is a light color.
I could see what it would for most of us that are really light skin. It has a almost mousse like feel to it. When I applied it it went on smoothly and gave me very light covered which is good.
Here is what it looks like after rubbing it in..
See what I mean about coverage? Super light for sure!
Nothing I dislike more than anything that feels like cake on my skin. It soften the feel of my skin and help even out my skin tone. I have some redness around my nose and under my eyes. It help cover it.
Now I don’t know about the rest of what it says it will do, I will have to wear more than a few times to really see. To me personally I have to agree with most other reviews I have read, it does feel and look like a tinted moisturizer.
