With all the buzz around BB creams the past year, I obviously had to try a few out for myself. I’ve been using the Garnier BB Cream for months now and figured I’d write a review of it. Since I have fairly good skin, I didn’t feel the need to splurge on an expensive version of BB cream. Out of all the drugstore choices, I knew Garnier was the first (I believe?) to come out with one, so that was the one I tried.
I picked up the light/medium shade in the regular version (they now make separate creams for oily skin). The squeeze bottle is easy to use and the formula is much thinner and creamier than most foundations. It goes on easily and blends nicely with just my fingers. A thin coat gives you enough coverage, but I’d suggest applying a little more if you need it or want to look darker. I’ve found that it covers any redness or imperfections very well, and even minimizes my pores a bit. The finish is a bit shiny, but in a hydrating way. If you have oily skin, it may look too greasy on you, but for regular skin, it looks great.
I think this will be my new go-to during summer months when my skin is a few shades darker and I don’t want to load on foundation. This BB cream is easy to apply and stays on all day long. I raved about it so much, my Mom even bought some for herself, too!
