When I was in Paris this past spring, I made my mandatory visit to one of my favourite places - City Pharma in Saint-Germain - a mecca for any beauty product lover.
One of the new products I picked up was La Roche-Posay's Antihelios Smoothing Optical BLUR. This has quickly become a new favourite. This amazing product has a high SPF (50), which is essential in keeping your skin healthy and free from harm, premature aging, skin cancer risks and burns, but also acts like a BB cream. Because, who really wants to wear makeup on a hot beach or while exploring a city in blazing sunlight? This cream does the trick.It really does create a smooth, matte blur effect and is gentle on skin. You just need a little dollop to start with (don't squeeze out too much at first because a little goes a long way and you can always layer). Warm it up between your hands to make it even creamier and easier to spread before smoothing on your face and neck. It's incredible to see how smooth it makes your complexion and how light it feels on. A warning though - wash your hands well after applying because it will sink into your hands and can stain your clothes or towels otherwise.
Check out this unique product in your local Shoppers Drug Mart / Rexall / PharmaPlus / favourite drugstore or chemist. You won't regret it!
