*Product Shoutout* - Garnier BB Cream

4 years ago

I bet you`ve already seen tonnes of posts on BB creams. In actual fact BB creams were first launched in the Asian markets and it`s an abbreviation of Blemish Balm. Due to it`s multi tasking properties one doesn`t know the exact definition.. you can even call it a tinted moisturiser with SPF (since most of them contain sun protection factor). Loads of companies have released BB creams such as Garnier, L`Oreal, Smashbox, Clinique, Stila and too many more to mention them all.

This post will contain a small review on the Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector All-in-one BB cream. I know the name is too long so we`ll just say it`s a BB cream :)

I got this BB cream from E-bay cause I couldn`t find it in Malta. Apparantely Garnier`s BB cream is more wallet-friendly even though some prices are still crazy high on E-bay! From Boots you can get it £7.49 It comes in this boxed package which doesn`t actually have any use to it whatsoever, but anyways, the product itself is in tube form and it`s quite convenient cause that means if the product`s about to finish you can always cut off the end and scoop out lots more product which is stuck to the sides of the tube.

Since BB cream is tinted it comes in different colours to suit most skin tones. I got the one in 03-Medium as my skin tone is not too dark and not too pale either so I thought that this would suit me best. You can see in the photo above that the product is quite blend-able and it`s got a creamy consistency.. Once blended it develops into a nice tinted glow and can look quite nice cause it gives this nice subtle bronzed look. It lasts pretty much all day on my face and since I used to get dry patches here and there this acts like a moisturiser so it keeps away those flaky patches. However, I don`t think this is suitable for oily skins as I`m sure this has got quite a bit of moisturising agents in it and it would be too shiny on those skins who are already oily!
One more positive thing about this product is that it`s got SPF15 so it gives you some sun protection too! I have already swapped this with my foundation and for the time being I`ll keep on using this as it`s less heavy than foundation.

Beauty tip: Use some translucent loose powder if you hate the shiny look and you`ll still get a nice glow if powder is applied with a light hand.
