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 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic product for acne prone skins I recommend everyone to try this fantastic product. I have an oily skin with a few acne scars. After applying this cream, my skin stays mate and smooth all day long. A miracle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I love this BB cream. It's smooth, light and it does cover simple redness and uneven skin colours. I don't use make up and I'm too lazy to find a perfect foundation, therefore this product is perfect for me. It feels and gives very organic look:-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best foundation for older oily/combination skins I love this foundation. I’m 55 and still have an oily zone and breakouts so I’m always trying new foundations which claim to work for oily skin, but aren’t too aging for me and I just end up spending money and coming back to this one as we’ll as L’oreals Mousse. The Effaclar is lighter but still gives a good coverage and doesn’t look too powdery in the skin. I use a stubby foundation brush to apply it which spreads it out well and gives a lovely finish. In summer I go up to fair/medium but that is quite dark for a fair skin so the light /fair is good for me although if you have really fair skin this might still be a bit dark. I use a powder on top and find it stays on all day, I end up powdering my nose a few time though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent cover and finish I think it's amazing. It goes on smoothly, is light on the skin, and has better coverage than most opaque, heavy foundations. I am in my 50s, have normal skin which can get a bit oily on the t-zone, and a tendency to get red patches on my cheeks. This is light, covers the red without being cakey, and seems to last. It's quite flat, so I usually add a bit of highlight on the cheeks. Also seems to stay on in summer, which is great because of the built in SPF>

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best product ever! I started using the Effaclar range two years ago after switching from Clinique. My acne has resolved and I hardly get any breakouts. The BB Blur is incredible...comes out like a mousse and has great coverage. I am glad it seems to be back on the shelves!!
