Vichy Normaderm BB Clear Balm: A quick review

Vichy Normaderm BB Clear Balm: A quick review

What it is: A one-stop Beauty Balm system that conceals and reduces the appearance of imperfections on skin — while also boasting acne-fighting properties that will help banish blemishes.

Beauty bonus: Having battled longterm acne scarring as well as ongoing breakouts, the addition of pimple-fighting properties is a HUGE bonus!

Beauty bummer: Although this cream claims to conceal, be prepared to have a backup plan if a pesky pimple pops up. This BB cream is indeed light coverage, which means your skin secrets are not fully in the witness protection program.

Overall: This BB cream has a light, fresh scent that is invigorating and calming.

It succeeds in blurring imperfections while being non greasy. When worn on a good skin day, this cream will give you a non-cakey finish that lasts all day.

But as mentioned in the beauty bummer above, this cream offers relatively light coverage, so a spot concealer was required on especially bad breakout days. 

Would recommend: Yes, but the slightly expensive price tag and the light coverage mean this balm may be best saved for only the best skin days.

Price: $19.85
Where to buy: Vichy and other mass retailers
