L’Oreal have released their latest BB Cream, the Luminosity Code BB Cream, an illuminating BB Cream that evens skin tone and covers imperfections and for me it’s right up there with my all-time favourite, Garnier’s BB Cream.
For women in their 30’s this BB Cream adds a youthful glow to your skin. A dream to apply onto the skin, it hydrates with skin with a moisturiser and illuminates with a pearlescent foundation that does indeed melt into the skin and keeps it hydrated and protected all day (they say 24 hrs but who’s not washing their faces before they go to bed? Naughty naughty!!). The ultra-fine mineral pigments blend onto the skin easily to immediately even skin tone, and give that flawless look we love!
