Product Review: Vichy Idéalia BB Cream *

Vichy 1

   I have tried several BB creams in the past - some samples, some that I bought. However, I have never come across any that have lived up to the BB cream 'hype', apart from Vichy's Idéalia BB Cream. This BB cream is available through Escentual.

   There are several reasons why I love this product. 

   The first is that the company use thermal spa water from the town of Vichy, France, as an ingredient in their products - which I thought was such a unique concept. I'm all about natural ingredients, but this is particularly exciting!

   Secondly, the product itself is so slick and easily blended. It doesn't streak or cake, it just melts into the skin. Not to mention, it blends so well with my skin tone (a yellow/olive tone) despite its initial pinkish colour.

   Thirdly, it does exactly what it says on the packaging. It illuminates by giving my skin a brighter sheen, it hydrates (probably where the thermal spa water comes in), it smooths wrinkles and refines skin texture, it reduces dark spots by evening out the skin tone AND it has an SPF of 25 - perfect for this time of year.

   In terms of coverage, BB creams are well known for their fresh-faced, no makeup concepts. Vichy's BB cream, when applied in a fairly generous amount, provides better coverage than other BB creams I've tried, yet it still gives a gorgeous 'no makeup' look.
