A tinted BB cream that blurs the appearance of pores and blemishes.



Moisturising BB coverage for oily skin that blurs the appearance of pores and blemishes.


Specifically formulated for oily, blemish-prone skin that needs coverage. The cream-mousse formula controls sebum production, excess shine and sweat. Contains blur technology and shade-adapting BB pigment which adapts to the colour of the skin on application to visibly blur the appearance of pores, fine lines and redness for a matet, unified, velvety finish all day long. Available in two shades; light and medium.

  • For oily skin prone to shine
  • Controls sebum production
  • Reduces the appearance of enlarged pores


Enriched with aircilium, a cutting-edge ingredient used by NASA, that forms a supple and resistant film over the skin and smoothes its surface whilst letting it breathe. Aircilium absorbs 3 times its weight in oil, keeping the skin matte and unified with a velvet finish. Perlite (composed of silica) is five times more powerful than talc, and protects against humidity with its continuous blotting paper effect.


Effaclar has been through rigorous dermatological testing to ensure it is suitable for use on even the most sensitive skin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does what it says and hide my pores completely! Wow, this product really does what it claims. I have large pores especially on my cheeks and it's very difficult to cover (hide) them. This product does an amazing job! My pores are hardly noticeable and my skin looks airbrushed with a nice smooth blur effect. A very happy customer! :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for blemished skin! I’ve always had acne prone skin and even since it has calmed down through medication I’ve got enlarged pores and scar marks! This product allows your skin to have an even finish without looking or feeling caked at all! I would compare it to something like benefits porefessional in the way it evens out the texture of the skin, and a higher quality foundation in the way it evens out the tone, just without feeling or particularly looking like you’re wearing anything! My only problem with this product was that, as I’m very pale, even the light colour is a little too dark for me if I’m not wearing any fake tan or if I haven’t caught the sun naturally.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for covering acne, just use moisturiser too! I love this product! It's really helped me out as a guy trying to cover my red acne/spots without looking like I'm wearing makeup. This product does have a chemical smell and a greasy feel when you first apply, but it does its job and soon turns matte. The colour at first may be dark but if you keep gently rubbing it in it magically fades to your skin tone (in my experience anyway, I have freckles too), and it also covers pores on the nose perfectly. At first I was anxious to use it thinking it will block my pores and give me more breakouts, but trust me.. it really doesn't! Just make sure to use a non comedogenic moisturiser (won't block pores) 10 minutes before using this, as it will make dry patches more apparent if you don't. This may not help cover huge whiteheads, but it covers my red acne bumps and redness around my whiteheads, and has made me a lot more confidant to go out when my skin is bad. And trust me when I say you really can't tell you're wearing anything, it blends in for me really well, just let the product settle in for 10 minutes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for oily skin Tried so many of the cheaper foundations for oily skin which either blocked pores or still oily. This is a little more expensive but keeps the oil away by far the best of any product I have used, looks natural as well. I still use a little bit of powder over the top but I have very oily skin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Feels great on oily skin This bb cream is so good for oily skin, it feels like velvet when applied. It blends perfectly with my skin colour. I initially thought it would be too light, but it’s great. It has a medium coverage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A game changer for me I’ve suffered with oily skin for a long time but developed rosacea and enlarged pores in my late 20’s. I’ve tried multiple things to help it, but have resorted to covering it up. Nothing really worked to cover the redness except Estée Lauder’s Double Wear, until I found this! I’ve used La Roche-Posay moisturiser for a long time, and have tried the CC cream, which only made my skin feel more oily. I bought the BB a few weeks ago to give something else a shot and initially applied it with my fingers. It was awful, smudgy, and did nothing for my rosacea: barely covering it and clogging my pores. However, after leaving it for a few days, I went back and tried applying it with my foundation brush instead. WOW! Instant transformation- I can’t express that enough! It’s better than any foundation I’ve used (cheaper too), I can build it up, it blends beautifully and doesn’t feel like I need to scrub it off by the end of the day. It’s covered my rosacea and definitely blurs my pores. I can’t believe what a difference it’s made. Absolute game-changer for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! I have been using this product for 2yrs now and I honestly can’t fault it. I have combination skin and it smoothies away all my open pores, covers my old acne scarring and makes me look like I have perfect skin. It really does stay put all day even when I swim and doesn’t look like I have foundation on. I really couldn’t recommend this enough. I use the light medium shade which looks quite dark when u first put it on ur face but blends in lighter. Everyone I have recommended this to after commenting on my skin now uses it every day. A must try product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes my skin look lovely. I've been using this BB cream for a couple of months now. I've got oily skin, prone to clogged pores and shines. This cream gives my skin a slightly more even tone, a bit of color, and keeps unwanted shines under control. When I clean my face at the end of the day it feels soft and not oily.
