Review: One of the best BB Creams I have used to date, and great value for money too! La Roche-Posay Uvidea XL BB Melt-In Cream really does melt-in to the skin and blends seamlessly to create a medium coverage foundation with a delightful flawless finish. While I am super impressed by the coverage and overall performance of this BB cream, I too am excited about the fact that this product not only covers and conceals but also contains SPF50 sunscreen to protect my delicate fair skin from the sun's harsh rays. I am naturally fair skinned and tend to opt for light foundation shades but Uvidea XL BB Melt-In Cream comes in rather fair shades and a medium is actually light enough for me to wear so if you wish to try this BB cream, I would advise going the next shade up from what you are used to buying. This wonderous BB cream covers, conceals, prevents the appearance of hyper-pigmentation, protects skin from sun damage, and hydrates. This affordable product offers fabulous coverage on the skin and lasts all day. I can apply this at 7am and Uvidea XL BB Melt-In Cream will still offer coverage by 6pm. Having said that though this product does tend to make my slightly oily t-zone appear a little oilier through the day and so I find the need to apply face powder by around 1pm to ensure my skin looks and stays fresh as needed. The squeeze tube is easy to use and makes application simple because you can gradually squeeze out the amount needed. Uvidea XL BB Melt-In Cream is best applied with a foundation brush or egg-shaped blending sponge because they help the product to melt in to the skin and blend seamlessly along the jaw and neck. Uvidea XL BB Melt-In Cream loses half a star because of the mid-day shine factor on the skin and the fact that the product tends to wear off my chin through the day a little bit also and while others may not notice this, I tend to. It also loses another half a star because this BB cream does fail to conceal blemishes or dark circles which is a bit of a shame when compared to some of its competitors currently on the market. Having said that,  I can highly recommend Uvidea XL BB Melt-In Cream to other BB cream lovers because this lovely product really tends to do what it promises to and is a really affordable option for everyone to enjoy.
