Decleor’s Hydra Floral SPF15 BB Cream

A QVC Exclusive

When I heard that one of my favourite brands, Decleor, were bringing out a BB Cream, I was over the moon. And to hear that it was exclusive to QVC, one of my ultimate sources for beauty? I was so excited to get stuck in!

Decleor’s BB Cream is exactly as you would expect – it is as rich, light and fresh as all of their other products. The floral scent is just divine but not so strong that it will overpower your fragrance of choice, and the added SPF 15 makes it ideal for day to day wear and protection.

What I love…

The formula is gel-like, meaning that there are no unsightly lumps and clumps and that it sinks effortlessly into the skin. The claim of 24 hour hydration is absolutely correct; once applied, your skin will feel dewy and hydrated with no oil or shine. I love that this is so light – if you’re after extreme coverage this may not be for you, but for a summer-in-a-bottle glow you can look no further. Often I’ve applied a little extra as the day has gone on and you can build it up very easily. Finished with a highlighter (try MAC Vanilla Pigment or Bobbi Brown’s Shimmer Brick) this is a youthful summer base.

What I’m disappointed by…

I have to say I’m a rare example because my skin is especially pale, but unfortunately this is just too dark to match up to my skin. The premise of having one shade is that it melts into the skin and lightens slightly when applied, giving 80% of users a great colour match. For my especially pale skin it just isn’t happening, but when I have a bit of tan on it blends in just beautifully. If you’re very fair like me (e.g. my other base shades include Lancome 010, Bourjois 51 and Illamasqua 3.5) you might want to try this before you buy. Here’s hoping it flies off the shelves and Decleor decide to create a few more shades.

A stunning BB Cream, this is a brilliant addition to an already wonderful range. You might as well give it a go given QVC’s 3o Day Money Back Guarantee, but something tells me you won’t be in a hurry to return this one…
