Garnier BB Cream Review

Garnier BB Cream Review
Garnier BB Cream Review
As most of you's will know I have oily skin so when the weather starts to get a bit too hot I don't always want to wear a thick coverage of foundation. So a few month back I decided to try and find a base product that was lighter coverage than a foundation and would be suitable for the summer. I decided to review how I've been getting on with this product over the past month or so

Before even purchasing this I was won over by the variety of shades and types of BB creams Garnier sell: dry, oily etc etc. There was literally something for everyone's skin shade and type which told me a lot about there range. I've never had any issue with Garnier products in the past so I thought why not try it on days where I'm not going far and see how I get on. I was a little weary at first though in case the heat melted this product off my face or my oils would start to get more noticeable etc.


After purchasing this I did a little research and quite a few mixed opinions on this product, some people said it wasn't long lasting at all and some say the opposite so I was a little concerned about trying it.

The first time I did try this I was a little disappointed with how the consistency was runny and very watery - this did sort of put me off because I am used to matte, thick coverage. But I still tried it out and blending it in with my Real Technique buffing brush I was instantly blown away with the results.

I do think using the buffing brush helped but I was really impressed with the results the coverage was incredible especially for it being a 'light' coverage. I have the odd redness, blemish here and there and even those areas were covered (of course concealer helped too!). It dried into my skin really quick and it was really easy to blend in, I have to say I am really enjoying using this bb cream.


My face looks and feels a lot lighter throughout the day when I go out places, it doesn't agitate me whereas my foundation probably would. Long lasting side of things it does last a good few hours 3-5 possibly but of course after that my face will need touched up with some powder. It is a really healthy, light bb cream for the summer and I am really enjoying wearing this.


Pros

Great coverage
Buildable
Healthy, light
Long lasting
Great shades for different skin types
Affordable
Perfect for summer

Cons

Runny when first pour out of tube

Overall I am really happy I purchased and tried this out despite the mixed reviews about it. I am definitely finding bb creams better for the summer, this has already made its way into my favourites this month!

  2. I was thinking about trying it for a while but I was afraid because I don't wear foundation or anything because it feels like a second skin to me and fortunately I don't need it even though I'm curious for this one.

  6. I used to be obsessed with it, but ever since I discovered the Bourjois CC cream I tend to neglect it. For me, the Bourjois CC cream is even better than this :)

  8. They say Garnier's BB cream is the best, but it doesn't seem to match my skin tone, so Maybelline is still my favorite...
