L'oreal Skin Perfection BB Cream-A Review

The Skin Perfection Series is the newest addition to the L'oreal skincare line.

It's hot pink, girly, offers plenty of benefits in a bufget friendly price. So what's not to like?

I got the BB cream, as I was really into trying something from this line, but I've already got a stash of creams and serums.

First of all, it comes in a tube, with a twist lid; you must unscrew it; not the most practical packaging, ever.. It contains 50ml, which is not bad at all and costs 12 Euros.

It's made for younger ages, so from the early 20s to mid 30s and is suitable for sensitive skins also, apart from being non-comedogenic. It's supposed to help with  imperfections, enlarged pores and an uneven skin texture while protecting from premature aging with an SPF of 25.

According to L'oreal "The tinted lightweight formula perfects complexion for a healthy-looking glow"

It is indeed lightweight. Although really moisturising, it does not feel greasy.

It has kind of a weird smell, though. I mean, there's no artificial perfume, so what comes to mind is a pharmaceutical cream. It does not smell of alcohol like the Garnier one for oily skin. It's a completely different smell, not necessarily bad, but not pleasant, either.

I got the lighter shade, "Light", it comes in "Medium" as well.
I must say, it is just a tad darker than my skin-great, regarding that most of the others out there are either too dark, or too yellow, or too pink!

Now, for the negatives:
I see no improvement in the appearance of pores and a really light coverage. So, any imperfections shine through. It does give a smoother, even skintone, but then again I don't really have any obvious discolorations.

All in all, it keeps you hydrated, smoothes out your skin but "Skin Perfection" isn't achieved. 

It does have good elements to it, so I use it as a sunscreen/moisturizer and continue with my foundation, concealer, etc.

I don't think I'd repurchase, though. Perhaps another product of the series!

Have you tried anything?


  1. Χμμμ πολύ βοηθητικό το post.. Γενικά οι ΒΒ νομίζω οτι είναι θέμα μάρκετινγκ, παρόλα αυτά θα τη δοκίμαζα εννοείται πρωτα σε δείγμα.

  2. I dont really like BB creams, I'm a medium-full kinda gal coverage, so mostly I stick to my foundation. This one however was one of the best I've tried with a light coverage, moisture and didn't feel greasy on my combination skin. Nice review hun!!

    1. Thanks, luv! We're totally on the same page! :-)

  3. Σ' ευχαριστώ! Μ' αρέσει ή λογική "ενα προϊόν για πολλά", ειδικά όταν υπόσχεται τέλεια επιδερμίδα, η αλήθεια είναι όμως οτι λιγες ΒΒ το καταφέρνουν..
    Γι' αυτό και σίγουρα συνιστω να δοκιμασεις πριν αγορασεις! :-)

  4. Φαινεται φοβερη αγορα! Οταν παω hodnos center θα το τσεκαρω και μαλλον θα το αγορασω ;)
