Clarins Skin Perfecting BB Cream


My skin is combination/oily and although I get the odd breakout it is generally pretty clear. I do however have small areas of dark scarring on my chin, as this is generally where I get spots. It is easily covered but because of the purple undertones in these areas it can sometimes look a little ashy, even under my foundation.

I tried this new BB Cream from Clarins as it promised to correct dark, shadowy areas through it’s 3D radiance and light correcting pigments and was so happy with the results.

 A light to medium coverage is given and the pigments really did bounce the light off of my skin and helped to warm up the ashy looking areas around my chin and mouth.

It is oil free so good for a combination skin. I do think if your skin is particularly oily you may find it a little too much of a radiant finish.
 It also contains SPF25, which will help to protect any pigmentation from getting darker also.

Available in 3 colours of Light, Medium and Dark. I am usually around an NC25/30 and normally would go for a medium in colour but the colours came up a little darker so light was perfect for me.

Great for people who want natural skin but need a little help with scarring and pigmentation. For darker scarring you would probably need a little help from a concealer also.

Can be used under a foundation by people who like a full coverage.

Gorgeous product and something I will purchase again.

45ml is £28.00 and available from May 2013 from


  1. I like all the BB products !!! Light color is the best!!!

  2. I have tried a sample of this in medium and you're right, it is really dark! However, I loved the texture and finish, but most of all I found it to be the first BB cream I had tried that looked good all day. I would like to try the light shade. x

  3. I was going to go for medium but I'm so glad I tried a sample first, it's much darker than some of my other "medium" shades.

  4. I really liked the formula but even the 01 Light shade left me looking like I'd been Tango-ed. Shame, as I love Clarins' stuff.

  5. Wow this looks gorgeous, maybe I will get a sample!

  6. So disappointing! I would love to try this product but I am NC10/15 and there is no way I will find a match :(
