Surprised this got so many bad reviews. Wondering if users were choosing the correct shade range. I am light/medium (light tan) and I thought this was perfect for me. It's really light, tinted moisturizer. I have no idea what a BB cream is, but I like this one. It is a little oily - but it doesn't turn colors, and it doesn't make me break out. Will repurchase.

My two biggest complaints about this product is that unlike BB cream(The real stuff) it likes to start out Orange on my skin for one thing and takes 10-20 minutes to adjust to my skin...which is not good on the go. Then on top of that it barely covers anything well its adjusting...so you won't even know how much of it is covering something until you've had it on for atleast 5-10 minutes. It also tends to look very powdery when you set it and if you don't set it it looks extremely dewy.Unlike most products it actually sorta stays on my skin though which is quite impressive...so I'm quite on the fence with it. Another plus to it is that when it does adjust it perfectly matches my skintone which is near impossible considering I am practically white but not white enough to be white...this means with almost every foundation out there...they are all too dark. So this is a 50/50 for me

this broke me out terribly along my jawline. Its coverage was alright, it didnt make my skin greasy, it just broke me out??? I am 32, and have maturing skin, it shouldn't have broken me out. I haven't used the Korean BB creams yet but have a bottle on the way. Hope they are better than this.

At the risk of sounding disturbingly enthusiastic, this is the skin product that flat-out changed my face. I know a lot of ink has been spilled on this product already, so I'll cut to the chase: This might not be a "true B.B. cream" in the South Korean sense of the phrase, but guess what? It still works magic on my combination skin, so semantics can go fly a kite. It's basically tinted moisturizer, I guess. That's not a bad thing! I used to pay $7.99 for 1 oz of CoverGirl foundation that was packed full of talc and hideousness. Compare that to $12.99 for 2.5 oz of Garnier, and I'm saving about $2.79 per ounce of product. (I used to get the CG stuff because it had the lowest sticker price. Go figure. Math > Everything.) Regarding talc . . . it's not in the Garnier product, so you can expect your combo skin to clear up like mine did. Like, within a week. It's pretty exhilarating to have clear skin for the first time in over a decade, let me tell you internet. You can get the last drop of cream out of the container without resorting to lunatic measures! The CoverGirl foundation I used to sue comes in a glass (or glass-like plastic) bottle, and the product stuck to the sides even if you held it upside down for a week. You probably lose $1 worth of foundation per glass bottle just because it won't come *out*. Not so with your squishy plastic tubes. Thanks, Garnier, my neurotic side appreciates it. I'm not sure what "shade" my skin technically is, because I am still pretty new to this whole "makeup" thing, and also because I get different answers each time I ask the nice ladies and gents at Sephora -- but let's just say that it's about as pale as Snow White's legs at the end of a long winter when all she's worn are sweatpants. And this stuff looks natural on my skin. Yeah, it looks orange in the container, but it blends out on your face. Honest. If they discontinue this . . . I'm going to cry.

Really love this stuff. Its really easy to put on and is nice and light. I am very lucky as I have good skin so i dont like wearing foundation during the day so this is perfect. I just throw some bronzer over it for a bit of a glow and im done.

Greasy, disappointing and very underwhelming result. It looks okay with a bit of powder on as well, but you could achieve the same look with a less greasy moisturizer and just regular foundation. A pointless moneymaking scam.

Orange greasepaint. Left my skin muddy looking. It took about a month for me to finally buy this, because it kept flying off the shelves. What a joke. Did not cover any imperfections at all. Suffocated my complexion. Made me look streaky, cakey, and shiny. All I wanted to do was immediately wash my face after slathering my pores in this strange stuff. Ew.

DISCLAIMER! I've never tried a BB cream before! A free sample and the promise of an affordable bb cream had me so excited for this product! Unfortunately...it fell way flat. It left my skin feeling....dirty. Greasy even! And while it did slightly "blur" imperfections I felt like the dewy finish and mild coverage could be achieved by other products in my bag without the grungy feeling on my skin.

I bought this hoping for a light coverage that wasn't heavy and would benefit my skin, and was severely disappointed. It feels great going on but after adding powder and getting on with my day, a peek in the mirror revealed the horror. It turns colors (not that with two shades there's a lot to choose from, but it shouldn't oxidize like that) and my face looked like I could deep fry chicken on my forehead. Not cute. It feels light but it made my skin incredibly greasy and I didn't really get any 'perfecting' benefits when I had it on. I got this on sale so I wasn't too sore about the waste of money but regular price it is way way to expensive for the product. As far as the packaging that's the only thing I loved! I like that it's a tube so you're not double dipping into it and spreading germs, and that you can really get a lot of the product out (and honestly it's pretty generously sized) but the package shouldn't be the high point. I'd only recommend this for someone with DRY skin who wants a tinted moisturizer.. Because that's what it is.

This BB cream is just awful. The color selection is a joke, and on top of that it turns kind of orange during the day. It's really a mess. It also makes the sin really oily wich is a problem for people like me. The packaging itself looks a litlle cheap. I am disappointed at Garnier for making a BB cream so bad.
