I was so excited about this product when I first bought it. I had a friend who swore by it! However, I have not been as impressed as she is. Mostly because of the lack of color choices. I'm very light skinned (usually the 2nd lightest shade offered in other foundations) and Garnier only offers light/medium or medium/dark colors which is very unfortunate. The light/medium comes out a little orange-y looking on me. However, the formula of this stuff is great! I love how it makes my skin feel! Of course it is very sheer and if you are looking for coverage, this product is not for you. I will probably not buy again until the summer when I'm tanner and will use in the place of a tinted moisturizer!
Didn't like this at all. Barely covered the skin, just left it feeling greasy and oily. Save your money and buy a decent primer!
Back when I purchased it, the product had just been released and had very good reviews. I was not impressed, the color was nice and looked not to bad when first applied but an hour later any my face was an oily shiny mess (and I do NOT have overly oily skin). Used for about 2 weeks to give it a chance. Fairly poor coverage as well.
I actually LOVE this product! I was a bit weary to try it because of the reviews on here, but I am so glad I did. I bought this for $12 at Target in the lightest shade. I had previously tried the Mabelline BB cream which was the same price but about 3/4 of the size, and it was way too watery and had poor coverage. First of all, this Garnier BB cream's consistency was much better. It's very thick and creamy, which I like because it's easier to rub on your face. It is kind of dark but after I blend it and apply my pressed powder the color goes away. And it has amazing coverage, way better than my Covergirl foundation. A little really goes a long way. It also lasts on my skin a long time.
Some people complain that it's too greasy; It is greasy, but nothing a light dust of pressed powder won't fix.
I haven't noticed any overall difference in my skin, but I've only been using this for about a week so far.
It smells like most typical Garnier products (kind of like fresh flowers) so if none have bothered you in the past this won't either.
In short: I would recommend this 100%!!
At first I really did not like this product but now I love it! It's perfect for if you're in a rush because it acts as a foundation and moisturizer. Its basically just a tinted moisturizer and not an actual BB Cream but that's okay with me. I always wear MAC Mineralize Skin Finish Natural on top and it makes my skin look flawless but not cakey at all!! This is my new everyday combination. I definitely think you need a powder on top of this to add a little more coverage and set it. I apply the this with my foundation brush as I would apply a normal foundation. There is a smell to this but it does not last long, only when you apply it. I'm going to purchase a backup soon!
My first try of a BB cream and I was disappointed.
I have oily skin and I thought that this one would work for me, but unfortunately it didnt. Within the hour, my skin was an oily mess, so much so that I wouldnt even use it on the weekend as an around the house tinted moisturiser.
Not on my repurchase list :(
I love this stuff. It is perfect for summer or when you need light coverage...more than just moisturizer but less than full foundation. It's easy to apply with fingers and I've had no breakouts.
This B.B. cream is great for a light coverage on a warm day. It has SPF protectant and it gives you a fresh glowy look. With a good powder, it stays for a while. It smells pleasant and applies easily with your fingers. It's my go to foundation/cream when I'm in a rush and can't do my whole makeup routine. I love it.
i can understand why the low rating for this product when i got it i got it with th main purpose of using it as a go to product when goin to the supermarket or having family at home anyway it was way better than i thought. i think that garnier launches the product differently in different countries but this bb cream smells like orange which is nice has agood coverage i have frackles that most foundations dont cover except after adding 2nd and third layer and it does stay fresh after 3 to 4 hours. however it has very narrow color match that if u cant find a close match it is not for u i myself think it needs a pinkish tinge to suit me better
No me gusta nada.Brilla en exceso.Creo que hay otras bb cremas mucho mejores que esta.
