I bought this on a whim while shopping at Aldi's yesterday. To be honest, I have no idea of why other than the fact that it was only $6, and I don't have any SPF 15 products just for quick trots out to the shops or stepping outside on lower UV ray days. Whatever purpose this would serve, it was a complete and total miss for me. I was shocked to find that the colour 'Fair' was bronzer brown, but that turned out to be a non-problem and it spreads so thinly that it covers nothing, smears any concealers underneath, and leaves a yellowish-brown hue to the skin that looks completely unnatural. I went for reapplication of my concealer/s (I use Lancome for the eye area and another for the occasional blotch/blemish elsewhere on the face), but it was to no avail as it all wore off in the oily mire of this BB cream, despite having used a heavy-duty setting powder and blotting away with rice paper all day. Conclusion: I've tossed it in the bin and am not going to bother trying any other salvage attempts. It isn't buildable - yes I tried a few layers to try to use up the small amount I'd doled out - and yet it leaves enough colour and grease behind for the entire face to dribble off in a couple of hours. Honestly, the only Lacura product I've found that seems to be okay for me is the Naturals Anti-Aging Day Cream with Liquorice Extract Oil & Silk Protein. I don't even know what this BB cream is actually meant to be A very oily tinted moisturiser you couldn't that barely makes the 'tint' stakes. An SPF15 to thin to provide the kind of coverage needed to be effective (remembering that you need about a teaspoon of a standard SPF cream to cover the face effectively against all UV rays). Greasy. Marge Simpson yellow skin doesn't do it for me. Now I don't dare try their foundation lest I break out (as I've done with their face powder and other products), Maybe I try out their products at a time when my skin is particularly prone to breaking out...
