La Roche Posay Effaclar BB Blur Review

by Eugenia Lung of


This product is used to even complexion and conceal blemishes, absorb 150x its weight in oil, instantly absorb sweat, and provide sun protection. La Roche Posay Effaclar BB Blur contains shade adjusting pigments, airlicium, perlite, and titanium dioxide broad spectrum SPF 20 to make all this magic happen! This product is best for people with enlarged pores, excess shine, and blemish prone skin… WOW I feel like this product was made just for me! This costs around $29.99 for 1.01 fluid ounces of product. 


I love the La Roche Posay Effaclar BB Blur. I’ve been using it as a primer for the last couple of weeks. I could wear it alone but I like full coverage most of the time. Also, it looks kind of streaky on me when I wear it alone. I was sooooo amazed to see my huge pores disappear right in front of my eyes!! A little goes a long way!! I can usually see my face starting to show my oils around hour 2 of application. It sucks and I am forever blotting and/ or powdering. When I use the La Roche Posay Effaclar BB Blur I can last 5 hours without look like an oily pan of bacon!! WONDERFUL! I found the best way to use it was to use my fingers and rub it in. Unfortunately it only comes in two shades, Fair/ Light and Light/Medium. I am curious if this would work for a primer for darker skin though. This also provides sun protection which is great for me since I live in sunny Florida. SPF is so important but I do forget sometimes :/ which is why having it in my makeup is a plus for me!


Is the La Roche Posay Effaclar BB Blur worth the $29.99 price tag? YES ALL DAY LONG. A little goes a long way and it really is amazing and I was shocked at the way it kept me shine free for the most part. THIS IS A VERY HARD TASK!! Also if you think about it, you are getting benefits of a skincare item PLUS a makeup item, two for one!
