I have never used a BB cream before and I thought that since this is cheaper than most Asian BB creams, I would try this out first. Normally, I hate putting on any kind of tinted moisturizer or face makeup in general because I break out really easily. When I first tried this, the smell was flowery and the finish on my skin looked dewy.. I definitely did not like that it was not a matte finish. It did however cover up any minor dark spots and evened out my skin tone. But because of that dewy finish, (I have combination/oily skin), by the end of the day my skin looked so oily and gross. Not only that I hated constantly smelling it everywhere I went.
This is my secret weapon. I was looking for something I could slap on and go without having to worry about coverage, SPF, etc. The fair/light is a little dark on me, so I mix a dab of my daily moisturizer to thin the color out. Other than that, I have nothing bad to say. I apply this with a flat top foundation brush and go. It's that simple. I don't need concealer on days that I am just being casual. Because I have dry skin, I love that the coverage/clarity is just enough that I don't have to add a layer of powder on top. I have heard from friends that the lack of color hues is problematic. If you are a darker complexion, expect some issues
I've used several other higher end BB creams but this one still beats them out- great coverage, makes me look natural but covers my flaws, stays on great all day!
I purchased Garnier's BB cream last summer when all you kept hearing about was BB creams all over.When I used this during the summer my skin was oily and it would look cakey and made me look like I had constant shiny face. During the cool winter I decided to give the product another chance. It works amazing in covering blemishes and redness and doesn't make my face produce any more oil than ordinary. I might blot like once a day, if that. I use a powder to set it and it lasts all day. I've unlocked the secret, at least for me, when it comes to using this cream.
I use this bb cream everyday! I have acne prone skin that is normal to oily. This bb cream is perfect for school, work, I even use it when going out! It does not break me out, I believe it actually improves the look of my skin when I take it off. I always set it with a powder, but it doesn't need anymore coverage than that. Medium coverage, does not get shiny, doesn't break me out.. All around good product
This is a great BB cream for all skin types. I love how it gives me a light coverage that last all day. I don't like using foundations because they're so heavy and don't protect against oil or shine. This BB cream is great for a more natural look and glides on super easy. I love how it has spf in it to protect my skin throughout the sunny day. Its non greasy so i don't get oily skin or break out from it. Over all its a great product not the best because there are more expensive brands that do better. But for the price and amount of product its really good.
This, for me, is a holy grail product. I have referred so many people to this product and they absolutely love it as well. I use this every day and it's the if-i-lived-on-a-desert-island-and-had-to-bring-one-beauty-product, this would be it. It's very light on the skin. I have rather sensitive normal skin so I was worried that this would make me break out, but I've used it for 3/4 years and I've never had an issue. The best part about this product? It stays on all day!!!!
Just incase you couldn't tell by my title, I LOVE this BB cream!! I've tried NUMEROUS BB creams, high end and drug store, and this is my all time fave!! The consistency is perfect for me. I can't stand the BB creams that are so thick they almost feel like spackle! This one is not too thick and not too runny. It does a great job evening out my skin when I just need light/natural looking barely there coverage. I'm combo-oily skin and this does not leave me feeling or looking greasy at all! Not to mention I love the smell. For those who are particular about scents, this does have a light floral scent.
I LOOOOOOOOVE the Garnier BB Cream. It is a great product to use for a quick and easy makeup application. I use this more in the summer time because it is a light to medium coverage, very lightweight! Feels nice on the face. I always set with a light powder. This is what I use daily in the spring and summer time. I noticed my skin clear up when I used this product daily. I tend to use other products with a medium to full coverage in the winter. But, you could cetainly use this in the winter time. It's a great daily use prodcut. Highly recommend!
My skin is so volatile and sensitive I was getting to a point where I couldn't find ANY makeup that wouldn't contribute to my breakouts. Then I found this amazing BB cream recommended by a friend. It also managed CLEAR breakouts. For $9.00 you seriously can't beat it. Lighter coverage and easy to apply. It has a refreshing light scent and stays on for a decent amount of time (I would say about 5-6 hours). Naturally dewy look that doesn't overdo it on my oily skin.
