    Effaclar BB Cream for Oily Skin Product Reviews

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Texture but needs more shades Love the texture and consistency of the product. Very little product goes a long way.nHowever, if you are Hispanic or South Asian the shade is way too light. I wish there were darker shades available.nIt is also very tricky to layer this product. It isn't clear whether a sunscreen is required or not but I assume it is because there is no SPF listed on the package.nIf you put a sunscreen ( I use Anthelios Primer 50) it just pills the product underneath. Also it exposes rough skin and broken skin which almost everyone with Acne has.nWould be great to have more directions on how to layer with sunscreen and salicylic acid products as well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing!! I received this free when I purchased the Effaclar acne kit and I'm completely in love with it! It's very light and does exactly what it says it does. It blurs all my acne scars and other imperfections, minimizes my large pores and stays matte all day. I used to put on a full coverage foundation that felt heavy and my face couldn't breathe and within a couple of hours, I would have to blot the oil off of my face. With this product, my skin can breathe and I NEVER have to blot. It really does stay matte and smooth all day and that's saying a lot because I live in South Louisiana where the humidity is off the charts! I use this as my only foundation now and I can't say enough great things about it!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Miracle BB cream! I use my Effaclar BB cream is a concealer and foundation rolled into one amazing product. This cream glides onto my skin like silk and feels so light, yet it has amazing coverage. Pores and uneven tones disappear instantly. I don't use any of my heavier foundations anymore because they feel so thick and greasy. I get natural looking coverage all day and a little bit goes a long way. Love this product and would highly recommend to anyone.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Made skin more greasy When I applied this I really enjoyed the texture and light weight feel of it, however the product never set or absorbed into my skin like similar products. I felt like it was just sitting on my face and it was getting more oily by the second. I even used the effaclarmat moisturizer that is recommended not only for oily skin but as a makeup base. My mom even said what was wrong with my makeup because it was like a slip and slide and definitely rubbed of on my clothes. I'm confused on why this says that it will control oil.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I like it a lot This product provides good coverage especially as a base product for my mineral powder which sets it & makes it last long. I especially enjoy using it when I'm in a hurry to get done because it goes on fast & easy. I don't think I'd like it as much without a setting type powder to make it last but it's perfect for that. I have aging skin with lots of red, marks, things I want to cover or even out so recommending this easy base is saying a lot. It doesn't cover EVERYTHING on its own but it still does the trick

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Beautiful Color But Mushy & Cakey on My Dry/Sensitive Skin I have dry, irritable, but young skin, and I would NOT buy this product again.nnPROs: Beautiful color. If you tend to like mousse makeup, you'd probably like this.nCONs: Kinda oily feel to the touch. Never sits down on the skin and smudges off very easily. I can feel it; it feels and looks like it's always wiping off my face and onto my hands, clothes, and phone. Looks mushy and cakes-up a bit on my skin. Makes my dry patches come-out more. I've decided mousse makeup isn't for me.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from WIN SOME, LOSE SOME I love the texture of this BB Cream. However, I have very oily skin in my T-Zone region and this BB Cream does not absorb the oil. I even tried using it as a base, because it makes my skin look so smooth, but that did not work. I think this product would work better for someone who has combination skin. Also the shades are very limited, I have a yellow undertone but the light medium gave me a ghost face which I had to cover with a medium mattifying powder foundation. (this was also after blending it like crazy). I don't think this is a terrible product, it just does not work for my skin type or tone. I am curious how the Toleriane Teint Mousse will work out, they have more shades and I hope it keeps my face matte. But overall La Roche-Posay skincare products work for me, so I was hoping to have some luck with their make up.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Base I gave this 4 stars merely because I can't use it as my sole makeup. Everything else about it is great. I like pairing this with the Effacular martifying moisturize. The two together create the perfect base for my mineral powder makeup and help keep my face looking fresh all day. Before I used the CC cream and the moisturizer my makeup would wear off as my face got oily and by the end of the day I didn't look so great. This really helps!
