Really didn't like the consistency, colour or the finish of the product and it reacted with my skin.
1. Consistency- was very liquid and if I tilted the bottle it would just drip out. very messy to use especially in the morning. Opening the cap it was everywhere.
2. Colour- I have slightly yellow-neutral undertone skin and the colour appeared very orange and fake. As well it was too dark. The orangy fakeness is what bothered me the most.
3. Finish- It is advertised to "perfect skin" but I found it would just dry really quick to a slightly sticky finish and it did not make anything smoother or have a natural matte finish. It looked more like a subdued glowyness (some people might like though).
4. I have sensitive skin (comes with eczema) and this product caused some dry flaky patches the day after I used. I stopped using it and it went away. Unfortunate but I run into this problem often.
Didn't finish the bottle and discontinued using it. On to the next one!

WARNING ORANGE FACE EXPERIENCE also an Australian reviewer!!
Just bought this the other day from my local supermarket, it was on sale for $11 and new (and supposedly improved).
I wasn't impressed to find that it only came in 2 shades here in Australia Light and Medium. I bought it in Medium. It has great coverage and a great matte finish for me.
the packaging it horrible as encourages leakage and worse-
IT TURNED ME ORANGE! Noooo.
After that i immediately removed it- i went online to research- Wayne Goss from Gossmakeupartist recommended blotting my face with 1ply tissue before and after application- sadly this didnt help!
I was still orange- perhaps slight less orange but still orange nonetheless.
Have any of you fixed/managed this issue? Help will be much appreciated!

-easy to blend
-gives natural finish
-needs setting powder
-only has 2-3 shades
Overall, I enjoy this BB cream. It gives a slight glowy natural finish. If that's not your thing, you can always use a setting powder on top. I used ELF HD powder and it works wonderfully.
The packaging can use some work as it leaks out very easily, wasting product. Also the shade choice is very limited: light/med, med/dark, and I think I remember seeing dark. During the winter months, I have to mix the light/med and med/dark. During the summer, I can just use med/dark.
It is a bit on the pricey side, at least in Canada. At a drugstore it's about $23. I got it on sale for about $13.
EDIT: even with a setting powder, it will fade...especially if you touch your face a lot throughout the day

This was on sale for 10 AU dollars at target which is very cheap. For a bb cream it is very good coverage. It offers a flawless finish and blends very easily. I have acne prone combo skin and I do look dewy but not oily when this is worn with no touch ups for at least 5 hours. Maybe with a setting powder would be better but that defeats the purpose of wanting a bb cream for when you want to wear less foundation but still cover up. I cannot say this broke me out although I may need to update in a week or two. The colour medium is a little orange which if I had a tan would be a much better colour to blend but its not that bad. I would probably purchase again.

I bought my first tube in France and just bought a second. Conceals, matifies perfectly. I use it also as a concealer and in the inner corner of my eyes. I am a portrait photographer and recommend it to clients (then I add other stuff for glow).
The only problem is that although I am fair and blonde, the light washes me out, and the medium is too dark. Sometimes I combine them.
Use a good makeup remover and sponge if you are blemish prone.

I love this product, it gives great coverage and has a dewy-matte finish. As opposed to the regular garnier bb cream this is not greasy at all and has waaay better coverage. I sometimes don't even feel the need to set this woth powder. It's the best bb cream I've tried so far. However it's very runny so you have to be careful when appliying.

I have previously used the Garnier BB cream for normal skin, but found it to be very greasy on my combination skin that is prone to getting oily throughout the day. This new BB cream is a revelation - I absolutely love it. My skin looks matte throughout the day, the medium shade matches my skin colour very well and my skin feels softer and smoother after a week of using it! It also has SPF which is a bonus. Was previously using the Loreal Nude Magique BB cream and this Garnier cream has much better coverage for a smoother finish, which I prefer. Have not been using it too long, but from my experience so far, I will be re-purchasing.

I've used this BB cream for many months and all throughout the summer, but for being an oil control version it definitely doesn't cut it. I find myself with a slick of oil on my forehead halfway through the day, even when I set this stuff with powder as an extra step. It has light, semi-buildable coverage that lasts about 4 hours on me before it starts to break down and it hasn't caused me to break out. When I used it as a primer under my foundation, it simply caused it to last less time. Overall, for the amount of product you get, it's in the same price range as the foundation I've used for over a year and I can't bring myself to pay $12 for something that doesn't do nearly as well as my foundation, even if it is nice to have something with a little less coverage for good skin days. Plus, THIS LEAKS LIKE NO OTHER. I have to store it with the crimped end down or the product somehow finds its way out through the cap. I won't be repurchasing, at least this formula. Maybe the normal version would be better, even if it does seem backwards.

I've tried so many BB creams and nothing is like this one. I do like it very much. I have very oily skin and have tried Maybelline and Loreal's BB cream but it seem to make my face more oily than it already is. I like the fact that this says "oily or combination skin". It is the only BB cream that I have found that is made for oily skins. The packaging is OK but the liquid goes everywhere (literally). If your not careful it will run everywhere. I don't squeeze anything from the tube I just apply what is on the cap (and is enough). I would buy it just because it is made for oily skins and with my mate powder and primer (of course) my makeup lasts longer.
