I love this BB cream! It left my skin feeling clean and fresh! It is really lightweight and I love the way that they put it in a squeezable tube.

I really like this! It has quite good coverage for a BB cream (especially considering what terrible coverage the original Garnier BB cream had). It also looks very natural and doesn't give a thick foundation-y effect no matter how much you apply. It also feels very good on the skin, not gross and heavy, but instead light and fresh. Also on my skin it is just the slightest bit dewy, not too much, but in a very natural way, which I like.
....However there are a few downsides (although to me the positives easily outweigh the negatives) First of all the packaging is not very good. Mine always leaks product out into the cap, making it quite messy. Also I find that it does not have amazing lasting and mattifying power, its still not bad, but I do have to touch up within a few hours.

Shade selected: medium/deep (I'm an NC37 for reference)
- light to medium coverage
- satin finish
- stays on
- very runny consistency
- does not control oil more than 4 hours
Comments: This is a pretty good foundation (which is what it is). It's lightweight, covers well, has a good amount of product, and stays put in warm weather. It has a very runny consistency, so store this upside down and you'll be fine. It doesn't offer much oil control (an hour less than most foundations for me), but won't stop me from using it.

I like the new and improved formula of this BB cream. The former formula was very greasy, and very harsh on my acne-prone skin. This new formula feels much lighter, smoother, and looks very natural. It can be a little crusty on the dry spots of my skin (acne scars/scabs included), but that's easily taken care of with a little facial moisturizer prior to application.
I use this product as a liquid foundation, even though it's more of a tinted moisturizer. (Followed by a light powder to set). I'm actually scared to ever try a liquid foundation again, given the break-outs I always seem to develop using them. I can wear this BB cream up to 10 hours before I start to break-out. Basically, it gets the job done when I need simple, natural coverage to last through a regular work day.

A really solid drugstore bb cream! Many I find are just too greasy and even with my slightly dry skin I find many just look oily, but this product is so great since it has a little moisture added to it but it doesn't make me look shiny. This would be an excellent product for any person with oily, combo, or normal skin who is looking for a BB cream with good coverage and just great overall performance!

Have only bought high end foundations for years because I was under the impression that they were the only ones that work...I was wrong! The coverage is just as good as any light to medium coverage foundation and it has a matte finish that LASTS. I dont bother with primers or setting powders or any of that fancy stuff but when I apply this at 630 AM it looks just as good at 10 PM when I take it off.
You get a big tube for only about $12, so comparing that to what I've been paying for years, its a steal!

Terrible packaging. Feels like liquid foundation, if i wanted foundation i wouldnt be looking for a bb cream....it makes my skin "matte" but my face overcompensates because of the lack of moisture that this product has created. Too drieng, horrible liquid foundation-like texture, cakes up on dry spots.

Satisfactory. Bought this in "Deep" hoping it would be a good match for my skin tone, and I won't say I was disappointed with the match but it could definitely be better if darker shades were offered from this line. I set it with my L'Oreal True Match pressed powder (C8 Cocoa) which helped and in defense of this BB cream: it is pleasantly blendable; therefore, I will say that I'm not terribly disappointed with this purchase. Coverage, oil control, and longevity of wear is good...especially for those of us with oily skin who don't want to wear a liquid foundation on those super hot and humid summer days. This is a good alternative IF it is a good match for your skin tone. I would purchase this again ONLY if Garnier adds a few more deeper shades to this line. This is a good buy overall, however, given its claims...it stays true to what it claims but for us with darker skin it may not be a good investment simply because the color match will likely be too far off.

1.BEAUTIFUL COVERAGE 1. NOT THAT MANY SHADES FOR WOMEN OF COLOR
2. LOOKS NICE IN PICTURES
4. DOES NOT OXIDIZE
Age: 18 & Under Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium Hair: Blond Eyes: Blue
I do like this product. As past reviews say, it does come off darker than you would expect. Coverage wise this is great! If you have acne or acne scars, just use a little concealer before applying it. It does get a kind of oily feel after a while of wearing it though, so maybe use a toner before applying.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Acne-prone, Fair-Medium, Neutral Hair: Blond, Straight, Fine Eyes: Green
I bought this in the winter, but it was a bit too dark for me at the time. I found it covered very well, but some days sort of oxidized on me. I have used Too Faced BB cream in the past and this has a lot more coverage than that, which I like because I have acne and acne scars. I would say this is product hasn't wowed me, but I don't completely hate it. I am going to try it when I go to the beach this summer and see how it performs.
Age: 36-43 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium, Cool Hair: Brunette, Straight, Fine Eyes: Hazel
Not happy with this. Light/Medium is too dark (I couldn't find Light) and it's too drying for my combination, acne-prone skin, even after moisturizing. Makes me look old, so I'm back to Neutrogena TM for now.
Age: 30-35 Skin: Acne-prone, Dark, Warm Hair: Brown, Kinky, Coarse Eyes: Brown
I purchased this in Deep and was happy it was a good match for my NC 42-45 skin tone. I love that his comes in an oily skin formulation, since Maybelline's BB cream broke me out terribly. It gives nice sheer coverage; it covers up most of my skins imperfections. I did need to use a bit of concealer on the hyperpigmentation left over from the aforementioned break out. Older smaller marks and the dark circles under my eyes it handled no problem. It holds up for a long time and to me jogging in muggy 80 degree weather.
The only cons for me is that it does settle into fine lines. I have a frown crease on my forehead, and it makes me look like Frankenstein's gal pal. So not attractive. Also the formula is on the thin side and makes for a messy experience coming out of the package.
Still, I'd recommend it to anyone with darker skin looking for some lightweight coverage.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Acne-prone, Fair-Medium Hair: Blond Eyes: Green
I have to say I absolutely ADORE this BB cream. I have light acne, large pores, and hyperpigmentation from extreme acne during my teen years and I have tried every foundation (mineral, liquid, mousse, etc..) and no foundation has ever made my skin look prettier than this BB cream. Let me also say, Garnier's original BB cream was HORRIBLE, I HATED it. It made me greasy and no coverage and just yuck. This one, however, keeps my face looking fresh for most of the day and has excellent coverage. I think those people who say it doesn't have good coverage and compare it to a tinted moisturizer aren't using enough. Not saying to cake it on (not that I think it'd get cakey anyway) but try using more. Even if your face feels wet at first, it has a lot of alcohol in it and it'll dry quickly and your face will look beautyful! Thank you Garnier for making this! I'll keep buying it as long as its available!!

Bought the light/medium. It is a little light. Only complaint is that I wish they had a medium shade. Do love the coverage it provides (light-lightmedium). Did not make me break out. Stayed matte all day without any powder. I have combination skin and my tzone normally gets oily by mid day. Would recommend.
** update- the more I wear this product the more I love. I have had this BB cream on for 11 hours... it looks the exact same as when I put it on this morning.
I have combination/oily skin. In every other foundation/bb cream I have ever tired (a lot) I have to do at at least 1 touch up through out the day. I don't have to with this!
Age: 25-29 Skin: Acne-prone, Medium, Warm Hair: Brunette, Wavy, Medium Eyes: Brown
I suffer from moderate borderline severe acne problem,I have lots of hyper pigmentation spots also. For everyday I feel comfortable just wearing bb cream since it has enough SPF to prevent my dark spots to darken even more and evens out my patchy skin tone.I don't mind the spots showing through. I tried the Lioele beyond the solution bb cream and I enjoyed it during the colder months because its also pretty moisturizing but during the hotter months it was just too much for my oily combo skin and thought I will give this one a try and it was perfect! The formulation is very liquidy and light. If you have dry spots make sure to exfoliate and put extra moisturizer on those dry spots so the bb cream won't cling. Compare to other western bb creams this bb cream coverage is the best,it's buildable light to medium (by 3rd layer). The only complaint i have is the packaging,I wish it has a pump considering its so runny and can get very messy if you're not careful. So far this is my HG for western bb cream and will repurchase it again.

Let me start off by saying that the color Light/Medium worked perfect for my Combo/Oily, MAC NW20 ish skin (I say "ish" because I use a concealer that matches my facial skin, but usually a foundation that is a shade or two darker so my face will match my body). I've read several negative reviews about this product but I have to say that for what it is, I like it a lot more then I expected to! I have seen that most people who are unhappy with this "BB" complain either about it not controlling oil well enough, or that the coverage wasn't full enough. I am really happy with this product for MY skin, it seems to work quite well for me. I treat this "BB" as a light foundation and use it in conjunction with my other everyday makeup products....
First, I ALWAYS lightly prime my face.
Then I spot conceal with my HG concealer: MAC Pro Longwear in NW20.
Next I apply this "BB" with a flat top brush (usually my Sedona Lace one).
Finally I set only my T-Zone using Rimmel Stay Matte.
Contour/Blush/Highlight as usual.
Last I ALWAYS use a setting spray (Currently using De Slick by Urban Decay).
My skin looks even, fresh and glowy without being cakey OR shiny. I tend to get oily on my nose first, then my forehead with ANY foundation. This is no different, definitely no "worse". Even though my skin can get pretty oily (plus I live in Hawaii) I've never been one to powder my face throughout the day, as to avoid getting that cakey look and/or feeling. I ALWAYS carry Clean & Clear oil absorbing sheets to remove the oil. I usually blot about 3.5 hours into the day, then I'm good to go!
Overall, I love how this performs on my skin. I honestly didn't expect to like this so much. I'm SOOOOOO glad that I picked this up! It is a little runny, but covers good for me when used in conjunction with my concealer. My main skin issue is unevenness and a few blemishes here and there. I don't think this would be ideal for someone who has very problematic skin. My only complaint is that I wish this was in a different package. Something with a pump is always nice! The price was mediocre... $13 for me at Target but I saw this for as much as $18 in Longs! Look around for the best price because I would definitely recommend giving this product a try.
I noticed my skin acting up a bit... I had a few more breakouts than usual. I'm still not 100% sure that THIS is the culprit but after reading that another reviewer had noticed it caused her a massive breakout, I decided to try mixing this with a tried and true foundation. (So far I've tried mixing it with Covergirl 3 in 1 Saty Fabulous-832 and Loreal True Match-W2.) One pump each of BB and desired foundation mixed together seems to be working well for me at the moment. It helps my foundation not look too thick or noticeable... I REALLY liked how this BB evened things out and covered well without being visibally noticeable on the skin. Now that I'm used to the finish of this BB, I don't even like using my foundations alone anymore lol. I guess this is why I'm testing the "mix" theory. Hope this helps!

This BB cream is a lot more fluid than most BB creams I've tried; it's definitely not a cream texture. Because it is so watery the application can get a little sloppy especially when squeezing it out of the bottle. I agree with the previous reviewer that it has a coverage between a foundation and a tinted moisturizer, which can be either a good or bad thing. It has to be applied and worked very quickly because it dries really fast. It smells a little like alcohol so that could explain why it dries so fast. I got the oily skin formula even though I have dry skin because I live in Miami and I don't need any additional moisture on my skin. I can definitely use this over the summer but I don't think I'd be able to take the dry-powdery feeling during the winters.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Acne-prone, Fair-Medium Hair: Brunette Eyes: Brown
Pleasantly surprised by this!! The original formula did not work well on me, most likely because it was not aimed for oily skin and I am oily. This gives a little hydration, which now in the hotter weather, I don't need an additional moisturizer. In the winter, I would use a separate moisturizer. It gives more coverage than a tinted moisturizer but not full coverage like a foundation. I still need to use concealer over it and top it with powder. It does have a slight sunscreen smell but it fades once you are done applying. Very happy with it so far!!

A while ago I tried Acne.org's BP treatment lotion and it wreaked havoc on my skin--as did some travel. My skin was clearing up but not quite fast enough, so I thought I'd try out this whole BB thing. I have Garnier's similar under eye concealer and I love it, so I thought I'd try their oily skin version of the BB cream.
It's very light, spread easily, and covers FLAWLESSLY. I looked airbrushed. And I think it lasted without getting too shiny during the day. Tragically, it also made my face break out. Badly. In the kind of hard, painful bumps that I haven't experienced in years (my acne is moderate, just 5-10 pimples constantly in a state of turnover, some post-acne redness, but mostly smooth).
Now I am trying to get my face back together, sampling other BB creams. Probably I should just go back to only using my Origins powder, but as of now my cheeks, temples, nose, and forehead areas are still pretty traumatized and I wanna cover it up! So anyways...this product could work for you if your skin is not acnegenic/sensitive. But if your skin is high maintenance like mine, DO NOT BUY THIS!
