This is one product which impressed me at the very look of it. I have always heard good things about Loreal skin care products and wanted to try this one because it is a BB cream. BB creams are currently the most happening products in the market due to its various benefits. Almost all the brands are coming up with BB creams and most of them are turning out useful. L'oreal Paris Youth Code BB Cream Illuminator claims to even skin tone, illuminate it, provide moisture and helps correct the appearance of skin imperfections. It has a very big ingredients list which scared me at first but still I went ahead and tried it. I use this cream when I am in no mood to go for foundation or concealer.

My Experience With L'oreal Paris Youth Code BB Cream Illuminator:

This product is very appealing to the eye and credit goes to its packaging. It has a classy look in vibrant transparent silver color tube with a flip cap. I felt this was pricey compared to Garnier BB Cream but then it is okay because these creams last for a long time. I have been using it now and then from many months. Only a little quantity is enough to cover your face and neck. Whenever I don't feel like using any foundation or concealer, I end up using this cream. This has UVA/UVB SPF 15 sunscreen which works good under the sun. There is no need to apply separate sunscreen or moisturizer as this does the work of both. The cream is thick in texture and has a mild fragrance. It provides great coverage on application and hides the skin imperfections. I had some pimple marks and this cream concealed them perfectly. It gives the skin a refined and smooth look thus making you look young. It stays on for more than 6 hours even when you are out. I think that is pretty amazing. This BB cream has got only 2 shades and I picked up the light shade as it suited my skin tone. I really wish they come up with more shades so that it caters to more people. I was having dry skin due to climatic changes some time back and that is when this cream caused skin break out. That was the only occasion when I was disappointed with it. Otherwise its been working great for me!
