Review | La Roche-Posay Hydreane BB Cream

I wanted to try this product for a while now, but since I have so many products to use up, I needed to wait before I got it. That was until the other day, while wondering around a pharmacy and searching for something else that was sold out, I saw this. So, obviously, I had to get something and I couldn't resist picking it up. My shade is Medium, which suits me perfectly  unlike the Estée Lauder one, which is a bit darker, so it needs more blending.
La Roche-Posay BB Cream is much easier to apply, even on dry skin, because it's less pigmented (and more hydrating), so it doesn't cling to any dry patches. I'd say it has less coverage than the aforementioned BB Cream, but it feels more beneficial to the skin, leaving it hydrated, plumped and radiant. It's formulated with the La Roche-Posay Thermal Spring Water and I noticed there was shea butter in the ingredients list.
Although it doesn't have a high level of coverage, it still unifies the skin tone and covers minor redness. I top it up with a creamy concealer under the eyes and around the nose. Works really well on combination skin types — just powder where you need to — and it might even work on oily ones, since it's non-greasy and suits all skin types.
The great thing about BB Creams is that they already have SPF, and in higher factors than your regular foundation or moisturizer. In this case, it's also suited for sensitive skins and it's non comedogenic, so there's less chance of breaking out. The only down side is the colour range, with only two shades: Light and Medium. On the plus side, it's purse-friendly and has 40ml of product, which is pretty good.
