this product does work the same way as any BB cream does ie. it gives you coverage with a bit of additional sun protection. The Clarins version gives relatively good coverage actually, it could be considered a bit thicker than the usual BB cream. It doesn’t give super sheer or light coverage like you get with a BB cushion product for example.
In fact the coverage could be considered a little too heavy if you’re prone to blemishes or have oily skin. I found that while it was perfect when I was in a slightly cooler.
The colour looks quite dark just out of the tube, but it blends out into something that suits both the fairer parts of my face as well as counteracting the reddened areas too, so I think it will work well for a number of different skin tones.
Although the brand doesn’t specifically state that this product is good for sensitive skin, my relatively sensitive skin didn’t have any problems with liberal use of this BB cream; although I did get a couple of blemishes (as I mentioned above) but that could have been due more to the richness of the product; I certainly didn’t break out in rashes or acne.
If you have a tendency towards drier skin and are looking for good coverage this could be the perfect BB cream for you. The benefit of the high sun protection, however, it something that everyone can take advantage of; especially if you’re rushing in the morning and are looking to skip a makeup routine step.
