L’Oréal Youth Code Luminizer BB Cream

Hi there! Today’s post is about L’Oréal‘s Youth Code Luminizer BB Cream (light shade, import from Germany) which I picked up for £4.99 at my local B&M Bargains store. This BB cream with SPF 15 promises 24-hour hydration and luminous skin.

It also claims to cover up blemishes and to make skin discolourations appear less visible. L’Oréal also says that, after 2 weeks, the skin looks more radiant and more even.

I’ve been using this BB cream almost every day for just over a month now. And I’m satisfied that it hydrates my skin well. It does cover up minor skin discolourations, but it doesn’t replace a foundation. In addition, the light shade is way too dark for me, so I wouldn’t be able to wear the bb cream on its own anyway.

Having said that, this BB cream sits well under my foundation. No issues at all! However, I don’t think that my skin looks more radiant or more even. But I’ve been using all sorts of brightening products for some time now, so at this point I wouldn’t expect a random day moisturiser to pack a punch.

All in all, this is a nice BB cream. I would definitely recommend it to everyone who’s looking for a rich day moisturiser that plays well with foundation. The 50ml tube is £4.99 only (B&M Bargains) which is a total steal!
