  • "i really did enjoy this product! for a bb cream, it had a great amount of coverage and i was pleasantly surprised by that. of course, if you have oily skin keep in mind that this will not dry down like a matte foundation would. but if you are someone who has dry skin, this would be perfect. the only reason i didn't give it 5 stars was because the color selection wasn't as great as i would like, i couldn't find a perfect shade because i was too light for medium but too dark for the lighter shade up. it also smells really good and clean!

There is so much fuss about this product. Maybe I am expecting too much from this due to all the positive reviews. For me, this product does feel pretty good when absolutely nothing else is on my skin. When I use this with my primer and moisturizer it is a hot mess. Talk about pilling, ugh it pills up so bad. Let’s talk about shade range. Short conversation. There is no shade range. Olive girls are neglected anyway so no biggie GarnierUSA. Having only one or 2 at best shades no biggie, really.
I do like the size of the product you get 2.5 oz, this is huge.
I do like how the product feels on my face after I learned not to use anything at all and apply it to a clean, dry, face.
I personally like the scent, however please be aware of a very strong scent.
Honestly y’all the only thing that I can use this for is for those occasions that you don’t want to be completely sans makeup, but you want to “look” like you don’t have any cosmetics on. Long story short yes I have it and for the FEW times that I find myself reaching for it I also find myself wishing that it matched my skin tone better.
I honestly think I would love it if it matched my skin color.
If you really want a good B.B. try Misha.

I love this B.B. cream and hate it at the same time. 

This B.B. cream (oily version) was probably one of the best ones I’ve tried! It’s so light weight, just feels like a moisturizer- however it’s buildable and FULL COVERAGE?!?! 

What a gem. Seriously. I’m someone who likes for my skin to be skin.. normally I opt for a nice concealer for all my acne spots and under eyes with some powder but this is just great.

Only downside is I think it might be breaking me out? Every use I find 2 new spots in my face. It sucks. Other than that this is a phenomenal product

I seriously love this stuff for just an everyday fresh face. The only problem... they need a lighter shade or just more shades in general. The pigment in this product is so good it could be worn as foundation. It covers up acne and hyperpigmentation. Because it is too light I have to mix it with my moisturizer or add white mixer to it. This is a very thin formula, but like I said it packs on the pigment. I used this when I had SUPER oily skin and I will say it made me quite shiny but now that I am on Accutane my skin is dry and it looks perfect - very skin like. It carries 2 FL OZ, which is double the size of a foundation and is the same price. GET MORE SHADES GARNIER!!

I live in Texas very close to the border to be specific, it’s always hot and so humid down here and 10 times worse during the spring & summer. I needed something that was heavy af like a foundation, I went through a few duds before I came across this B.B. Cream on YouTube. I saw so many reviews raving about it and I decided to give it a try. You guys this B.B. cream is amazing! It has amazing coverage isn’t heavy and doesn’t make you feel like you have a lot on even though the coverage is great! My skin is able to breath unlike the times where I used foundation and living down here in Texas where it is hotter than hell all year around is literally a blessing. If you want something that’s light but gives you amazing coverage and works great with combo oily skin I suggest this. It’s crazy affordable I will warn you though it is liquidy and you have to shake it a little bit and the shade range isn’t that great there’s only two shades that’s the downside.

For a drugstore B.B. cream this is pretty good! It is a sheer finish, so I don’t need to use concealer in certain spots,but overall it evens out my skin tone fairy well. I use the oily skin version, so it’s not super greasy and I find whenvee I use this my skin seems to be less oily throughout the day? Shade wise I wish they would expand overall, and my fair/light shade still runs a little too orange (I’m a fair neutral skin tone), but I use blue chromatic drops to counteract the orange tone. Overall I really like this product.

I got this at Ulta for about $12. The thing I love most about this product is how lightweight it is. It is very watery compared to other B.B. creams, but that also makes it easier to blend.
I also love how it has a SPF of 20, which is outstanding compared to other B.B. creams. B.B. creams with a greater SPF are usually oilier, but this doesn’t make my face oily at all!
I would say this is a light to medium coverage, which makes it perfect for everyday makeup!

At first I was hesitant on buying this because it only came in 2 shades, but the light/medium shade fits my skin perfectly! I usually can’t find concealers or foundation that match my skin because I have such a yellow undertone.

I definitely recommend this product. It is a perfect foundation for an everyday look + SPF to protect your skin!

this is a great tinted moisturizer! i used to hate b.b. creams and such because they had no coverage and they would come off almost immediately and just overall made me feel greasy. I figured this one would be the same but i was mistaken! it isn’t full coverage obviously but it covers a lot and i use concealer as a spot treatment if i’m trying to go for a full look, but usually i don’t need to. this is my go to base for my everyday look and i never would have guessed!

Maybe BB/CC creams just aren't for me, but I hated this product. It was runny and, despite being "oil-free", sure seemed oily to me. It went on streaky, did not absorb or blend at ALL, and did none of the things I thought a BB cream was supposed to do! It gave zero coverage, not even a light level, and made my face look weird, shiny, streaky and just altogether terrible. I would not ever buy it again, and I ended up just throwing it away because it was so useless.

I like the formula of this product, it is really light, but buildable. My biggest complaint is the color options. I am very fair skinned and wasnt able to find one that matched my skin tone. I looked orange, even during the summer when I spent more time outside. I could get away with mixing it with moisturizer, but then I still had to be sure to add enough of each product and I felt like I was losing the benefits of a BB cream by that point.

I’ve been using this B.B. cream since high school! It’s defiantly very lightweight and doesn’t give much coverage but with a bit of concealer, you’ll like very natural and like your skin but better. It’s even better because it has SPF in it. However that does mean that it oxidizes pretty heavily so make sure you blend very well. It doesn’t break me out as most B.B. creams do. I would definitely recommend this to anyone!
