I purchased this product in Light/Medium for combination to oily skin and this is the 2nd time that I have purchased it & it has worked great on me. I have oily skin & at 1st I didn't expect it to work on me at all. I have used this product during the summer & even harsh winters & it has never failed me. Of course it won't last me an entire day (it's BB cream) but I can get a good 8 hours from it. However, if I do prime before applying the BB cream I will get a full day from it. The coverage is light & it can be buildable but only to a certain extent. My choice of color is a little light on me so I do have to mix it with the darker shade (Medium/Deep), but its only a tiny bit. If you're looking for something that gives you full coverage, this is not the product for you. This product is definitely something to use on a daily basis & like it claims, it does improve your skin. On a daily basis, I apply it with my Real Technique expert face brush or, most of the time, a damp Beauty Blender. I do use concealer and powder after it (MAC's pressed blot powder in Medium Dark/Dark or Ben Nye banana powder) without a problem.
Overall, I will & do recommend this product to everyone. The product itself is $13 USD & will last you for a good 4 months+ so its definitely worth the price.
Ok let's start off with the bad and then good Cons: -just like any other bb cream doesn't provide the best coverage (but is very build able and will cover up well) -in my opinion the smell is good (flowery scent like all other garnier products) but it might bother other people -can be slightly expensive for some people Pros: -it left my skin feeling beautiful -I noticed my blemishes slowly disappearing (I have been using clean & clear pore cleanser since I have oily skin with dry patches) -covers up my redness great So in conclusion I'd definitely buy this product again! It really does work like a miracle and hides my imperfections well and you can blend it with you're fingers, sponge, or just use a brush!
I have had this product for a couple of months and i realised that it does not work for me.
HOWEVER, there are more cons than pros
-not very good coverage..feels like theres nothing at all because i need to cover my acne scars
-extremely oily; i can add setting spray, powder, and in 2 hours, il be oily again. I even bought the one for oily skin
-a bit expensive for me because it does not work very well
I think that this would be a very good bb cream if you just need some skin brightening and awakening. However, i do not recommend this if youre looking for a bit more coverage but still light, like I was.
this product works great if you mix it into your foundation. i found that wearing this product on its own makes my skin very oily.
I wanted to love this bb cream so badly, but unfortunately I have yet to find a perfect one. Although I love the consistency of this bb cream (compared to Olay's dry pasty one), I find that it turns orange way too quickly. I applied it straight onto my skin, and at first it seemed to blend in well, until it oxidizes into a total mess. Same things happens if I use a primer. It also becomes too oily after about an hour, even when I set it with powder. Maybe my skin just isn't made for bb creams.
WOW. This stuff really works! Love, love,love the way it goes on my skin, love how it conceals everything, I actually love the smell, very unique!
I used to use (haha) the Garnier BB cream for oily skin, and I switched to this one because that one made me really orange, and I can say, it's working amazing for me. If you have medium skin like me, go for a light, because the bb cream adjusts to your skin tone, and it's so much to go lighter than darker. If that's a problem for you, you can always add bronzer or some sort of contour.
I'm really into the dewy look lately, and this bb cream, it just does it all for me. Blurs discolourations, brightens the skin, just works so well.
I like this product. The only thing I have to say against this is the lack of SPF (which isn't a problem, I just apply sunscreen underneath. but sometimes I'm lazy.) and that it's horrible at covering redness and acne. What I love is how light it feels, I generally wear this when my skin needs some refreshment and if I don't care about coverage. but if I do want a fuller coverage, I mix this with another BB cream until I have my desired coverage. This doesn't work for everyone, but it does for me. Two thumbs up, I will be re purchasing.
I'm very pale and despite the reviews saying it's orange and dark, it suits my skin very nicely. The consistency is a little odd, kinda runny, but it spreads well on my face. My only gripe is that it has a shiny finish and I have oily skin already so that's a problem, but I just dust on some powder and move on. 4/5 stars but I would not buy it again because I don't love it.
Runs VERY orange like most Garnier products. I'm not a huge fan of BB creams but i was hoping it could be something quick for school. I saw a You Tuber raving about this so i went and tried it. Definitely can't wear this until summer when I am tanner. If you're fair you should not purchase, it is made for people with olive toned skin. I also don't like the consistency or the coverage. It's very runny and covers next to nothing. To be fair I like Medium to Full coverage, so if you have olive toned skin and like light coverage this would be the product for you.
I love the thought behind a BB cream, but have yet to be impressed by any of the claims. This is a tinted moisturizer at best. I don't see "blurred imperfections" nor does it "even skin tone." I had to really shake the tube well before squeezing it out because it separated--had droplets of what looked like olive oil come out of the tube first. Perhaps because of that, I felt greasy after using it (even after shaking to blend it). This color is not for me either. It's not light at all--this is full on for medium tones. It appeared dark on me and rubbed off on everything. Though it didn't make me breakout thankfully, I'm not using this again.
