Vichy Normaderm BB Clear Clinical Trials

Vichy Normaderm BB Clear Before & After Photos
As you can see, it gives a super light and natural looking coverage. It covers redness and has an excellent minimising effect on the pores. It feels really comfortable on the skin and moisturises without exacerbating shine. I wore this without powder (my favourite thing to skip if I can) and it lasted really well with minimal shine. Although I don’t suffer with spots I do sometimes get congested skin and salicylic acid is very helpful for keeping that under control and this gentle formulation leaves my skin really radiant looking.
