I was a lil skeptical putting this on because the color looked ashy. I have medium skin tone (I bought the light/medium) because my skin gets lighter during winter and it actually turned out pretty good. The coverage is light to medium. I put on another layer and used powder to settle the liquid and its been 5 hours and it looks great. It matches up with my skin tone. I'm going to try to finish this whole product to see if I get the actual results but if I do I would definitely buy again or try another BB cream if I can afford it by the time it runs out haha. This was actually pretty cheap compared to other BB creams thats why I went on a whim to buy it.
So far so good. Will update in a few weeks to see if there are any changes in my skin.
This was my first BB Cream.
Absolutely hated it.
Although i have it in light, and the colour looks like a match, this turned my face orange, covered nothing, and made my skin feel really greasy. Only pro is that it's easy to apply.
Would never recommend this, there are so many actually decent BB Creams on the market.
I bought this cause i wanted something easy and fast for school, so when i got this i loved it but after a while it oxidation started to happen so i looked pretty orange and it took a while until it looked normal on my skin. It was pretty greasy which i didnt like and it seemed liked a thick foundation rather than an actually BB cream. I feel like it didnt moisturize(especially during winter where i dont actually drink any water), this actually made my skin look worst by showing the driest sports in my face a little more..
I dont know, i personally didnt like it but i will try and find a way to use it, maybe in the summer where im a little more darker..but all in all, im not so happy of my purchase, i used better and way more effective plus around the same price..
I've been wanting to try a BB Cream for a while, having grown a bit tired of my tinted SPF moisturizers for being too chalky/sheer. For full coverage I use Bare Minerals, but for daily wear I wanted something more simple and less dramatic.
I have fair skin and red hair, and I have freckles, and some redness around my nose, which this product balanced out nicely.
I really like Garnier BB Cream. It smells nice, gives good coverage without looking too cakey, and while I wish the SPF was higher, I'm pretty pleased overall.
I really loved this stuff when I first started using it last year. The smell is pretty strong but I like it. The coverage for me is fine, I don't have too many things to cover, I just like having and even skin tone. After using this almost everyday, and half way through the tube, it started applying really thick. My mom said the same thing after she had been using it for a while. Not really a big deal, I just mixed it with a bit of thin moisturizer and it worked, I could ALWAYS use extra moisture.
And then what little bit of a tan I had faded away and I went back to having almost porcelain skin. Seeing as how I already have the lightest shade in this, there is no where to turn. No amount of blending or moisturizer can make this light enough for me to continue using for now. For me, it's a decent product to use in the summer but not worth the $$ for a product I can only use a few months out of the year.
This was the first one I tried. It was easy to apply and gave my skin an even-toned glow and a dewy finish that muted my imperfections while still giving a no-makeup look. In the end, it was just too much for my oily skin though. Most if not all of these bb creams (American and Korean) have many silicones and consistency agents that clog my pores. I would be pretty shiny within a couple hours, and even though a dusting of powder does help delay that to an extent, I started breaking out from it so stopped using it. Too bad because they actually have colors that compliment western skin tones. Probably better for dry skin.
A big boo hiss to this! It gave hardly any coverage, yet I did find it managed to colour my eyebrows a charming orange hue. It has a gel-like consistency which is quite nice but again, it does seem to stick to any hairs so I found I had to be really careful when applying around my eyebrows - wasn't impressed about that. It's general colour on my fair skin did tend to be slightly orange too. I didn't feel that it gave me a bright or healthy glow, which is what I had hoped for. I wanted a light fresh look, I ended up orange and dull. Because I found the coverage so poor I also noted that it did nothing for evening out my complexion.
I think it's far too expensive for what it is, as it really doesn't do much. It has a very sickly chemical floral smell.
Pros - SPF, more face products need a basic SPF in them.
Cons - smell, poor coverage, orange hue, doens't really do what it says on the tin for brightening and freshening complexion.
Nice product. Refreshing, fruity scent and light, cool texture. It hydrates skin but not for many hours. It didn't provide much coverage and it was somewhat greasy. I will not repurchase.
I bought this BB cream because it was 1/2 price at Coles. I really wanted to like it, but having persisted with it for a few weeks I'll be throwing it in the bin. The colour (I bought it in 'Light') is a bit too orange for me but the main problem is the texture/finish. I didn't have any issue with the coverage, after all it's not a foundation. The coverage is more like a tinted moisturiser (maybe a little bit better), and that's all I expected. But I found it really accentuated any fine lines on my face. I have dry skin so I wore my normal moisturiser underneath, but this still felt quite tight on my skin after a while and made my skin look crepey. I won't be using it again.
Love this product very light but slightly sheer sadly i picked up the wrong shade but can make it work by plending it out more very good dont like the pacaging though makes it very clumpy and dry on the end so i have to squeeze out a bunch of it so i feel like im wateing it but it does its job
