Review: Garnier BB Cream in LightMedium

5 years ago

Hi everyone! Recently I purchased the Garnier Skin Renew Miracle Skin Perfector in Light/Medium from Walgreens and now I`ll be doing a review for you.

Price & Availability
- $13.99
- The displays that I`ve seen have a $1 off coupon tear pad
- I`ve only seen this at Walgreens so far, but I`m sure it will eventually make its way to other drugstores

Shade & Finish
- Two shades: light/medium and medium/dark
- Dewy finish

- Tube packaging
- The opening is not flush with the rest of the packaging, so product gets trapped after dispensing. (see picture #6)

- This does have a floral scent to it, similar to Physicians Formula`s Happy Booster Blushes

How to apply
- Fingers, brush or sponge

- Relatively inexpensive (it`s $14 for 2.5 fl oz, as opposed to other BB creams that may come with only 1 fl oz and retail for $30)
- Will probably be widely available
- Hydrating
- SPF protection
- Covers light redness and uneven tone fairly well
- Easy to apply
- Light/medium was a pretty good match for my NC25 skin

- Only comes in two colors (light/medium works for me, but it`s probably too dark for fair ladies and the medium/dark is probably not dark enough for some ladies)
- Doesn`t cover up hyperpigmentation
- Scent may bother some people

- My face felt really oily while wearing this, even after blotting
- The packaging gets messy for me because of the way the opening was created

Please remember this is a review based on my experience with the product. Your results may differ based on your skin tone and skin type

I was really excited to try this product out because BB creams are really popular in Asia, but are pretty expensive to buy here in the States so it`s nice to see American companies following the trend. What makes BB creams so popular is that they are touted as all-in-one products that primer, protect, cover and heal.

Every time I applied this product I used my fingers, because the consistency of it is a little thicker than a liquid foundation, more along the lines of a tinted moisturizer.

The first layer was pretty good at covering up redness, but it required lots of layering for any of my hyperpigmentation spots. It doesn`t specifically say that it will cover those, but it does claim it will give you `instant coverage and correction.` So, not really so instant if you have skin like mine.

Because this has a dewy finish and I`m already oily, I set it with a powder to get rid of the shine. However, a couple hours later my face felt very oily and greasy, and even after repeated blotting my face would still shine up. This may be better for those of you who have dry to normal skin, though.

To me this didn`t strike me as a traditional BB cream, but really more of a tinted moisturizer. The coverage was enough if you only suffer from some uneven skin tone and/or light redness. Because the finish is so dewy and the product is hydrating this would probably be best for those with dry to normal skin types.

Have you tried this product yet? Will you?

Thanks for reading!
