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.

Customer Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Medium/LIGHT!! This is a great product for oily skin. You only need a tiny amount and the mousse blends in well! The coverage is good and it does keep oil at bay more than the similar products I have tried. BUT... although this product is titled "Medium", the description and the tube itself both say "light/medium", which is definitely a more accurate description. I have light, olive skin (Type 3 on the fitzpatrick scale) and this still washed me out! I had to wear a darker setting powder or bronzer over the top. however it was still wearable with these products on top. I mainly recommend this product for those with Type 2 skin that is oily/combination - Type 3 at a push! :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for oily acne-prone skin I have oily skin that is prone to breakouts. This BB cream gives the skin a wonderful smooth feel and visibly blurs the appearance of the skin by evening the skin tone. It has surprisingly good coverage for a BB cream although you need to build up on blemishes. Keeps skin looking matte and stays put. Last but most important, it didn't cause breakouts! Recently wore it while travelling for more than 12 hours in warm weather and my face was still looking decent at the end of the day, which is pretty amazing. Once again La Roche Posay doesn't dissapoint!

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 1 out of 5 by from Effeclar BB blur I was so excited when I spotted this product and couldn't wait to get my hands on it. Unfortunately the products doesn't last all day, I work between 8.30-1.30pm in an office so I'm not doing anything extra energetic yet by lunch time my face is shiney, it also feels cakey by this time and doesn't sit well in large pores. I have the medium which is still very pale. I have olive skin and it just does not suit me. When first applied it does feel soft and velvety, buts it is heavier and full coverage. Not for me- and defiantly not worth the price tag!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Product! La Roche Posay is my ultimate skin care range and am SO HAPPY I can add them to my makeup bag too! This BB Cream is more like a foundation. Amazing coverage (light to medium but buildable) lasts ALL day....which I have rarely found in even very expensive foundations. Absorbs oil and covers imperfections incredibly well (I have oily spot prone skin and swear by the Effaclar range). The shade Light/Fair is perfect for my skin tone (English rose super fair), no orange oxidisation after a few hours either! Applied with the Tweezerman flat foundation brush the coverage is PERFECTION! I would highly recommend this product and for everyday use I cannot find anything better......IN LOVE!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not good for combination skin I imagine this is good for people who are super oily, but as someone who has combination skin it's kinda horrible. It sticks to and exaggerates any dryness on my face and makes it look cakey, even after moisturiser. The colour is also really orange and anyone who is super pale would probably struggle with it. I'm disappointed because I'd read such good reviews.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soft as velvet I was pleasantly surprised by this product. I now realise why it costs what it does and that's because of the quality. It's so soft and airy. It doesn't clog my pores and it doesn't look caked on the skin. The only issue I've had is if my skin is oily, it does seem to move around on my face if I accidentally wipe it. Overall, a wonderful-feeling BB with great coverage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent I adore this it's so good, it's a bb cream and it really does blur imperfections, it covers pores and redness and makes your skin look matte and very smooth. I think she the best bb cream you will come across as it has the coverage of a light foundation, I have the lightest shade and it blends in well with my medium skin tone. A must have.
