Vichy Idealia BB Cream


by Ellie Balfe
07th May 2013

It’s official; you can now abandon your heavier, more wintery foundation in favour of a lighter product. At least during the day anyway. We all lust after skin that looks as though it’s wearing nothing, skin that looks even-toned, bright and glowy. Vichy have just brought out their latest addition to the (excellent) Idealia range – a BB cream. No, it’s not a new idea, but a new interpretation of a BB, and one that is very good indeed. It contains a pearlescent effect that literally bounces light and makes skin look super-glowy, all the while working (as they do) on dark spots, upping hydration levels and protecting from the sun’s rays with an SPF25.

We’re hooked!
