this really isn't BB cream- western BB creams are just tinted moisturizer.
it went on smoothly but made my skin look very oily and my large pores were accentuated. the color turns a too dark/orange after application even though it's the lightest shade!! i bought a korean BB cream instead and i am so much happier with it
just perfect for oily skins. I'll buy this again and again!
I really Like this BB cream. I tried the original garnier BB and HATED it. It was so greasy and impossible to wear with my combination skin. I bought this, and I am in love. It reminds me of Nars Sheer Matte Foundation because of the nice light coverage, and matte finish. Keep in mind this product is very drying because of the extremely high alchohol content, but otherwise is an excellent product!
This is one of my favorite drugstore bb creams although I highly recommend Garnier's new oil control version of this bb cream just because this bb cream unfortunately left my skin oily.another con for some people is that it has a strangeish smell that doesnt really bother me because its not offensive but to others they might not like it.but this bb cream is fantastic because it has a thick, moisturizing texture and it has pretty good coverage for a bb cream.it definitely blurs imperfections besides blemishes and it lasts pretty much all day for me which is important because I dont always have time to reapply my makeup.also it has sunscreen in it which is always a plus! Overall a lovely bb cream especially for drugstore.
I've only been using this for two days but so far i am in love. Before I started using this, I had some acne that I was having trouble covering up with my makeup and getting rid of. Since I started using this I've noticed a HUGE difference, my skin is more even and toned, and all the small pimples on my face have disappeared, and one big one that i had on my chin has shrunk so much. It's amazing! But not only that, it looks great on, I've tried some other bb creams and some of them actually made me break out more, they would just collect around my acne and get flaky and make me look like just awful (the marcel bb cream to be exact) but not this one, it makes me look flawless! I dont get oily throughout the day and it lasts ALL day looking amazing. im so happy with this product. I bought this in the medium to dark because summer is coming up, and just stopped tanning beds so I still have a bit of a tan left over, and it matches really well. Some bb creams even in the darker shade are really light still and make me look pale and like sickly but this one has like some goldish undertones and make me look glowy and pretty I am so happy with this product. ONLY con I can think of so far is that you have to store it upside down because the product leaks out when its stored how you're supposed to keep it. But other than that I LOVE this. I would recommend this to anyone its amazing I am in love!!
UPDATE: I broke out!!:( I've been using it for about two weeks now, and this weekend i was out late and didn't wash my face until about 3am, i was wearing it from 11:30am-3am and the next morning i woke up with pimples on my face:(. This was not just a small break out either, its the kind thats so bad i don't even want to leave my house. I'm very disappointed. I haven't broken out like this in so long:(. so i'm going to continue using this product but only until i find a new better bb cream. lowering my rating to 3 lippies, because i think if you have less sensitive and breakout prone skin it would be okay. and of course I have to keep in mind I was wearing it for 17 hours straight, but i'm still very disappointed!! :(
also, i dont really like the colour selection anymore. at first i thought it had gold undertones, but now that my tan is fading i've noticed that it has more reddish/pink undertones, so i purchased the lighter shade but its too white for me so i've been mixing the two together. i wish it came in more shades!
It has a great coverage, looks very natural and has a beautiful matte finish. BUT it smells like an alcohol. Don't use this on your eye area! Because the alcohol will dry out the under eye area so bad. And it is not very good for your skin so i don't recommend this
Was so excited to try this product! Started out great, the application was literally flawless! Fast forward a week and a half and I start breaking out everywhere! Stopped using it and my skin has calmed down. For some reason Garnier skin products do NOT agree with my skin. Would not recommend for sensitive for break-out prone skin.
I bought this product because I saw so many good reviews on it! However when I tried it for the first time I notice that it was very very runny! I notice that when I applied it, it did look and feel amazing! However throughout the day it wore off! It did control oil at the beginning of the day but around the middle of the day I had to keep blotting my face! It look horrible! Even though my face looked oily, it was actually drying out my skin. I'm going to try it again just this time with moisturizer underneath and a different powder foundation over it to see if anything changes! I hope it does !!
Love this product! I have normal to dry skin and this oil free version of the Garnier BB cream is 100% better than the original formula. The original is greasy, offers minimal coverage and is very strongly fragranced. This oil free formula is exactly the opposite and leaves a beautiful finish with really nice coverage typical of a foundation. The only thing I dislike is the runny, watery consistancy. It tends to leak out of the tube when you unscrew the cap. Fantastic product!!
Loved this on my skin at first. It looked so good on my oily, acne prone skin with tendency for dry patches. I am 37. After two days I got 7, yes 7, new red spots on my face. Pity but into the bin it goes..
