Where do I begin with this product? Do I start with the "dewy finish" that translates as "I just ran a 5k marathon" on the face? What about the chemical scent? Or how about the absolute lack of color range? Garnier should stick to hair.
I got a TON of these from the "I Love my BB" promotion that Garnier was doing on their FB page. I was scared at first because all of the other BBs that I have tried have delivered such minimal coverage that I had no use for them. This one is the closest to an actual foundation with regard to coverage that I have used, and for that alone, I am a fan! It does have a scent to it, but it is light and fresh, so it is not overwhelming. I have very fair skin and the Light/Fair color is a little dark on me, but I can work with it when I use a light transluscent powder over it.That being said, I suffer from acne and scarring. While this is far from full coverage, I do leave the house while wearing it, so it covers enough to make me feel confident in my skin while also providing all of the benefits of a BB (of which, the SPF is my favorite).
I just started using this product and overall I like it pretty well. It's like a tinted moisturizer with more coverage. I don't see myself using this as much in the winter time because it can look a bit too dewy, but for hydrated summer skin I really like it :)
This product goes on very nicely and gives a nice dewy look to your skin. I have dry skin and it hydrates my skin very well! The only problem I would say I have with it is that although upon first application it gives create coverage for a BB cream it fades pretty quickly.
I found that this product made my face very greasy and break out. It was also a orangish color. It was also expensive.
This BB offers just the right amount of coverage. It's better than a tinted moisturizer. I have very fair & oily skin, so the cream didn't work out well for me. It was too heavy & left me a little too orange. That is a common problem for me though. I think it would work well for people w normal to dry skin.
Got a sample of this in various shades to find the one that was right for me. I love the coverage and how it leaves my skin moisturized.
I buy and try this and I don't like . because where i live (AZ) in the summer are very hot so your sweating a lot and this is look on your face .. that why i change to another one this don't like in my opinion ..
I pair this with my Mary Kay liquid foundation and it is amazing. A little goes a long way and theirs no strange scent associated. Its perfect for an everyday look and lasts for a long time.
This is a VERY light coverage BB cream. It covers your minor imperfections. I haven't tried other brands yet, but that is my next plan. I know that CC creams are supposed to do more, so that may be my next step.
