Review amp Application: Garnier Skin Renew BB Cream in LightMedium

Finally, an affordable American version of BB cream.
As some of you might have noticed, a few brands have released BB creams in America (namely Clinique, MAC, Dr. Jart, and Boscia) but they are all over $30, which is more expensive than just ordering an Asian BB cream on Ebay or Asian beauty websites.
I was very excited to see this for $10.99 at Target, and gave no second thought before snatching it up.

I don`t know if you see a difference... But I don`t. It slightly diminished the redness just a teensy bit, and if my skin was yellow toned I wouldn`t have to blend it out so much, but such is the life when they only have 2 shades. It does say "sheer coverage" among the plethora of description and claims about the product, but it`s a little too sheer.

Right off the bat, I saw that this BB cream is very yellow-toned, which is good and bad depending on your skin`s undertone. On my NC20 skin, the yellow-tone is easily blended away, and looks very natural on the skin... Although once blended in to fit my skintone it doesn`t give enough coverage. I suggest really pale or really dark gals steer clear of this.
This is also advertised as somewhat of a skincare product, but if you use it without a moisturizer beforehand, the yellow undertone might be a little hard to blend away.

If you don`t have much discoloration and spots on your face, you can easily use this and get out the door. On my acne prone skin, however, it only minimizes a little bit of redness and I need to go over with a lot of concealer to conceal my active acne and acne scars.

For the price, I think it`s better to just go with a drugstore foundation. I`d rather spend $20+ on a real BB cream, like my L`egere White Multi BB cream (review here for better coverage and lasting power.
