I reported on the La Roche Posay BB Cream which was released in Asia last year and it was priced really expensive at about 49,000 wons! As you might not know, La Roche Posay is also under L’Oreal and coincidentally, L’Oreal’s other brand Lancome upgraded their BB Creams this year and introduced a new shade because there was a lot of complains about the clay grey tone of their BB Creams.
La Roche Posay is also doing the same this year. They will be introducing a new warm toned shade like Lancome – and chances are this is going to be pretty similar. Like the Helena Rubinstein BB Cream , the Lancome BB Cream and the newly released L’oreal Perfect UV Max BB – the new La Roche Posay Uvidea XL BB Cream will contains the Mexoryl XL & Mexoryl SX filtering system. Priced at 3570円 ( Japanese Yen ). All 4 BB Creams have the same shade, tone, texture – so if you’re on a budget choose the L’Oreal UV BB which is the cheapest of the lot. Only Lancome and the La Roche Posay has the new additional beige tone.
The BB Cream has been Asia-exclusive for more than a year, and there are no plans to bring it to the West YET.
Check out the official description below :
