Hi lovelies, I’ll attempt to provide you with a pithy review of the Guerlain Lingerie De Peau BB Beauty Booster cream in 01 light shade which I picked up a few days ago. Today, with the myriad of products explosing on the market and with the thousands of critiques flooding the internet, laying your hands on the perfect BB cream is no safe bet. So, I will try my best to come clean with my rating here because I don’t want you to be in sackcloth and ashes after your purchase. See, how much I love you?

Now, let’s get started…

Product description on the official website of Guerlain

Guerlain creates the 1st Lingerie de Peau Beauty Booster cream for the illusion of a perfectly nude complexion.

As light as a summer negligee, it promises a perfect complexion thanks to the combination of five actions: hydration, protection, radiance, correction and an even skin tone.

Intangible and secret, Lingerie de Peau BB becomes one with the skin to make it more beautiful than ever. Its secrets: the Bio-Fusion micro-mesh, an unprecedented combination of smoothing and shaping stretch fibres and natural linen and silk fibres in complete affinity with the skin.

Imperceptible and subtly tinted, it blends in like a second skin to reveal the natural perfection of your complexion.

The skin tone becomes invisible, like clinging lingerie.

The Lingerie de Peau Beauty Booster cream comes in a 40 ml tube. SPF 30-PA +++

Plus Points

First of all, it looks too sexy. Don’t we all love stuffs that are pleasing to the eyes? Well, the cream is packaged in a sleek beige tube with a pump dispenser that doles out the ideal amount required for a full face application with just two shots. You can thus be sure there will be no product wastage. It is also very easy to use, travel-friendly, hygienic and classy.

It contains SPF 30 PA+++ which filters out approximately 97% of the UVB rays we are exposed to. Since we, girls, cannot get out of the house without our sunscreen, the Guerlain BB cream does a decent work shielding us from the harmful radiations.

Another thing that I absolutely fancy about this beauty balm is its texture. It weaves an imperceptible veil of sublimity onto the skin, giving it a perfect silken finish which gets gorgeously dewy after a few hours. It also stays on the skin for an incredibly long period during the day.

The Guerlain BB Beauty Booster creates a flawless complexion by instantly covering scars and blemishes. You can chuck away your primer, eye concealer and toner because this cream does all the wonders. And truly, who has got the time to put on distinct products on the face when one has to rush to go to work in the morning?

Its signature scent is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G -a naughty blend of freshness and luxury, making your skin feel rich and oh-so-pampered.

Negative Points

The Guerlain Lingerie de Peau BB Beauty Booster provides excessive coverage. It neither allows the skin to breathe nor does it give it a natural look. Even if you take all the precautions of the world to apply the littlest amount of the cream on your face, the end result is always cakey. Dear Guerlain, why d’you over-egg the pudding?

Moreover, it comes in only three shades-01 Light, 02 Medium and 03 Beige Naturel. The first one suits my skin tone but many of you might be disappointed at the limited choice.

“The idea of a well-formulated BB cream is that it’s the only product you’ll need after you wash your face”, says Ni’kita Wilson, a cosmetic chemist at Englewood Lab in New Jersey. Guerlain claims that their BB cream moisturizes. However, I somehow still find the need to apply a moisturiser before the latter.

And what’s the damage? Ah, it costs big bikkies. The BB cream may have all the bells and whistles but it is not worth the fortune, in the end. There are so many cheaper alternatives that do a better job, like the Garnier BB cream and the L’Oreal Magic Skin Beautifier, to name a few which I have tried in the past.

If I had to appraise the Guerlain Lingerie de Peau BB Beauty Booster cream, I’d probably give it a 3 out of 5 stars. I don’t really recommend you to buy it unless you’re rolling in money and are in it just for the brand!

My soul is an enthralling mystery, delicately concocted with some chaos and a little glee.


  1. And your review started so positively! I have been trying lots of Guerlain foundations lately and love BB creams but haven’t tried this one. How much is it? They do lovely stuff but it is quite expensive and yes there are lots of cheaper alternatives. Still, lovely products. Great post! xx

    1. To be all frank Lucy, unlike you, I was a first-time customer for Guerlain when I purchased their BB Beauty Booster for approx MUR 2500; so I’m pretty sure that you know your onions more than I do. When I use the product, I find that it works more like a foundation than a BB cream which is supposed to be light. It therefore depends on your personal taste- while some prefer their BB cream to provide adequate coverage, others want it to look more natural on the skin and going by this, I would not advise the later group to buy the Guerlain BB Beauty Booster.

      Have you tried their perfumes by the way, sweetie?

      1. Hmm very interesting. I guess I do like a BB cream with more coverage as can use all year round and on its own but I can appreciate not everyone does. No I haven’t tried their perfumes although have admired the lovely bottle and packaging of the little black dress one. Are they good?

  2. With a schmarmy smile shuttering my face, I must point out the GLEE I had misreading the words. “Cosmetic Chemist” becomes “Cosmic Chemist” it is harder to mock GUERLAIN but early favorites are gluerain or a bad quote from “Captain Ron” (Kurt Russell, Martin short ; early nineties film) “no. You said gorilla not guerilla HUGE difference” but alas my powers of delightfully English diversions are fading. .. But new Jersey… Love canal three mile island fallout?… And cosmetics? I didn’t research veracity of location – smear here so, um… Might be courting or carting b.s. again. And with my best schmarmy smile… “See, …” um that is an interesting comma choice in that sentence ending the last sentence of the first paragraph.–I mean, poor you, to hear it from me, Mr. Never edits. I hope you giggle imagining me making a farse only because I really just do not consume makeup.

  3. Eh, bien voilà, un article qui permet de ne pas jeter son argent par les fenêtres car je ne me roule pas dans l’argent 😉
    Et surtout de ne pas acheter lingerie de peau de Guerlain, parce qu’avec un si joli nom, on aurait tendance à vouloir l’acheter à tout prix !

  4. A very timely review for me, since I’m in the market for a face powder/cream. I never wear it but with lots of projects on the go, I’ve got a definite doesn’t-get-outside-much appearance.

    This has been helpful. Thanks for this honest review! 🙂

  5. I bought this little tube of green goo at Sally’s. It’s supposed to take the red out and give you an overall BB, but I’m not seeing it. I have light (and troubled) skin, so I usually have to buy almost translucent. I’m middle-aged, so I’m searching for that perfect, dewy look but something that covers (yucky) occasional acne. I’m also a s-a-h mom, so I don’t want to pay too much, at the same time.

    Any recommendations?

    Thank you for visiting my site, sweet lady!

    1. Hi there, sorry for my late reply. What is this green goo? Is it an organic product? I have never heard of it. I would advise you to purchase the Garnier BB cream or the L’Oreal Magic Skin Beautifier, as I’ve mentioned in the review.

      I hope it helped. Take care 🙂
