Review: L'Oreal Paris True Match BB Cream 'G1 Honey'

The BB cream craze has definitely reached its pinnacle in India. With the bouquet of BB creams *where BB stands for Beauty Balm or Blemish Balm* available in the country from majority of skincare and beauty brands, we're kind of spoiled for choice. The latest to join the BB wagon is the L'Oreal True Match BB cream which comes in 3 shades especially created for the Indian skin tone and a number of claims.
So let's get on to the review then.



Disclaimer: The following product was sent by L'Oreal for the purpose of a review on Style File. The thoughts and opinions that are expressed below are honest and of my own.





Packaging:

The BB cream comes in a cream tube with a metallic gold screw on cover and a thin nozzle inside. The outer packaging is attractive and sophisticated with black and gold lettering and contains 30 ml of the product.

Price:

Rs.550/-



Product:

The BB cream has a smooth, creamy texture which allows it to be applied and blended easily. It does not have any fragrance to it which is great for those who tend to be sensitive to product fragrances. It is portable and non-fragile which makes it easy to carry around with you.



Results:

* Pros:

- The texture of the cream which makes it easy to apply.
- The instant brightness and smoothness once the cream is blended.
- The attractive packaging.
- The way it moisturises the skin without making it greasy *even on my oily skin!*
- SPF 35 + which makes it perfect for sun protection.

*Cons:

- The cream needs to blended in well or else, will leave a whitish cast
- Only 3 shades being available. I think a couple of more options would have been better.

Rating:

 7.5/10

My advice:

While it does not live up to its claims of 24 hours moisture and re-toning the skin, I think it does a great job in terms of skin protection and texturization. So if you're a BB lover, you should give this one a try as well !
