This is my first experience with a BB cream. I feel it's more of a tinted moisturizer. Not bad, but not what I was hoping for in regards to coverage.
Update: definitely not recommended for the acne prone. Skin still recovering from about 2 weeks of daily use.
Also seem to oxidize on my skin, leaving me with an orange cast.

Well first let me say wow! My sister actually bought this and I used it and now I'm going to buy my own! I actually went and bought an expensive BB cream by skin79 and was so disappointed, it made me so white and went on cakey! After that I was pretty hesitant to try the 'cheap' version - how could it be any better? So I was definitely surprised when I liked it so much. It went on sooo nice - I used a sponge - not cakey at all, nice and even. Not patchy in the dry areas. Not orange or anything, I have the 'medium/deep' color. Matched me so good! I like that it's so light, I usually wear just some light powder or no makeup at all, I can't stand the heavy makeup feel on my skin and how cakey makeup can look. But I definitely don't have perfect skin, I just had a bad break out that left me with some icky spots and those little zits that are so annoying. This definitely covered those up enough that I felt good about my skin but didn't feel like I had this heavy layer on. I let it dry then apply some powder on top after about 20 minutes. Perfect. My skin looks nice and pretty. I actually think it stands up pretty good, I have fairly oily skin on my forehead that I always have to worry about so I did a 'test' and waited 6 hours to see how oily it got. Not very much! I just had a tiny little bit. I definitely think using a makeup sponge helps so much in applying it - if your getting oily and your just using your hands or a makeup brush use a sponge instead! I've been using it about a week and i haven't broken out, my skin is extremely sensitive so I would've known very quickly if it was going to. And I will say my skin does actually look better! I definately update if it breaks me out or makes a huge improvement in my skin, but right now I'm loving it and I think I found my HG makeup!

This product is flat out horrible. I hate the texture, and I feel like it doesn't go on evenly. After 2 hours my face was oliy all over! the next day, I noticed blackheads and pimples in areas of my face that I have never had them in! And I have had pretty clear skin lately and no breakouts! This is probably the first product that I only used once and threw out! The store does not take refunds if the product is used, and I would not bother to swap it because it's so awful! I will never touch this stuff again!

This was a great introduction into BB creams, but I don't think I would stick with it. The smell of it reminds me of terribly cheap foundation, not a product that cost about $21. It didn't cover my breakouts that well, but did help to heal them throughout the day. A little bit.
I will definatly use BB creams in the future, but will not go back to this.

This is a sad excuse for a bb cream. More like a tinted moisturizer. It was so light and offered barely any coverage. I don't have many blemishes that need covering, but could use something to even out skintone. This didn't do much of that. I'm NC20, and this was too dark and left me orange. It also felt tacky and oily on my face. And last but not least, it reeks. What a waste of $14. Save your money and get something else.

I had high hopes for this, thinking that a US bb cream might be something fantastic (and I do love a lot of the Garnier skincare). It was $13.99 at Walgreen's ---and thank God I bought it there because the Light/Medium shade, while sheer, was actually much too dark/orangey for my NC20 skin. I ended up returning it after trying it twice...I liked the feel of it and the scent was pleasant, but really the shade was awful. And, as others have stated, this is NOT a true bb cream but a glorified sheer TM. For that much $$ I'd rather use an actual TM that matches my skintone.
Age: 18 & Under Skin: Sensitive, Fair Hair: Brunette Eyes: Blue
Worth a try if you want sheer, glowy coverage. I mean sheer.
This BB cream is just okay...I agree with others in that it acts more like a tinted moisturizer than anything else. I have sensitive combo skin and this didn't make my skin appear greasy or oily...but that's with nothing on top or underneath. I tend to wear sunscreen every day under my makeup and coupled with the BB cream my skin was very dewy, bordering on shiny. Since this product can't play nice with another, I don't think I'll repurchase.
Age: 30-35 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium Hair: Blond Eyes: Brown
Not a good product. Stayed on my face for only an hour and made me look really oily eventhough I was setting it with powder...plus even the lighter shade was a bit too dark for me.

This is my absolute favorite skin product. I am 35 with fair combination skin, a little redness but nothing major. This product does exactly what I was hoping for- light coverage, mousturizing, no oiliness. It just makes my skin look fresher and healthier and more even with no heaviness. And I love that it contains sunscreen! BB and a light dusting of loose powder are all I need. I will be very upset if it gets discontinued!
Age: 18 & Under Skin: Combination, Medium Hair: Brown Eyes: Brown
This smells fantastic. I actually like the scent! It matches my skin tone and the coverage is fairly nice but this "bb cream" never seems to dry! It feels so heavy and sticky on my face i just know it's clogging up pores. Not good. It's waay too oily.

I never, ever buy drug store foundations or tinted moisturizers because they tend to make me orange. However I bought this product on impulse one day and I am so glad I did!
First of all, a little bit goes a long way with this stuff. A little dime-sized dollop of this covers everything, even my five-head.
I have pretty problem free skin so I wear it alone in place of a traditional moisturizer and it really helps to even out my skin tone. It gives me a dewy glow with out turning me orange or making me look oily. I don't even have to put a powder on top of it.
I think for the price it's an excellent product for people that don't need a lot of coverage and just want a nice one step product. I will definitely buy this again!
Age: 19-24 Skin: Oily, Fair, Warm Hair: Brown, Wavy, Medium Eyes: Hazel
Lots of people say this product doesn't work well for oilier skin, but I disagree, as long as its set with a powder I don't have too much of a problem with it. I love the fresh scent to this and the glow it gives to my skin. It is a very light coverage, but actually ended up being more coverage than I expected.
For those who don't like this product, try mixing it with a foundation, it gives it a little lighter coverage and also a nice glow, which is good for summer. I generally need more coverage, so I don't think I'd repurchase it, but I think this would be really nice for those with already good skin.

I did not purchase this, fortunately. It was an insert in a magazine with a coupon. Although I was surprised that the light/medium color was acceptable on my fair skin, this stuff looked like a greasy mess. When I put loose powder on, it made it cakey and gummy. I am all for saving money when a product is worth it but this one definitely isn't.

I am usually one to buy department store brand make-up because I am very picky because I don't want to harm my skin. However, lately I have been purchasing items from the Garnier line one piece at a time. I use 4 of their products in my daily skin routine which is shocking for me and one of those products happens to be the BB cream. This BB cream is amazing! I love how it has sunscreen in it and so many other great qualities such as: brightening, hydrates skins, both UVA/UBA protection, Vitamin C for evening skin tone, non comedogenic so it won't clog pores.
I have fairly good skin; I have minor blackheads on my nose/chin area, I get a few blemishes during that time of the month, and the only redness I have is in the creases around my nose. If you have severe acne and/or redness the BB cream will NOT provide you with enough coverage. But then again you could try it because it is only about $12 at Walmart and it has great qualities for the skin.
When using this product you have to set it, especially in the summer time because it will look super shiny! I use a cheap setting powder from Coastal Scents or I just throw some matte powder on top of it and it looks perfect and stays put!
I did not break out from this product! Yay! In addition, this product is gentle on my skin. The packaging of this product is okay, the way it dispenses is sanitary. However, it makes me nervous to travel with it because its a pop top dispenser. But the plus side of that is that it stands on its head so all the product falls towards the nozzle so you get more of the product! Think of a tube of toothpaste but with a hinged top. This product is worth a try considering how inexpensive it is and how many great skin helping qualities it has in it!

First of all, I will just point out if you are purchasing in Canada it is a pretty good price for the amount you get. I paid $20.00 CAD at Shopper's Drugmart for a bottle that will last me probably for a good 6 months. (I have had it now for about 3 months and still have quite a lot left.)
This product is very good for people with dry skin, because it is VERY hydrating. I used to have very dry skin on my face and it has gone away after using this product. The smell is a bit strong, but I think it smells nice. It leaves a nice shine, but I would use concealer spot-treatment underneath it because it definitely won't cover up redness or under eye circles on its own. I find that it overall brightens my face and gives it a good moisture balance.
The only thing that disappointed me about this product were the skin colour tones it came in. There were only two choices, which were Medium/Dark and Light. I am very fair skinned, so I was hoping the light would work out for me. Well, it turns out the "light" is a lot darker than they lead on. I started using this product in the late spring so my skin was still very white (from a long Canadian winter), so I had to use a powder on top of it for sometime. However, now that I have tanned throughout the summer the colour is perfect for my skin tone. I will definitely buy this product again because it worked out so well for me. Cheers!

I really like this product. It does not make me look greasy, unlike some tinted moisturizers that I used before, it doesn't react with any of my concealers, it doesn't change color, it doesn't settle in my fine lines, and it has SPF. It's been my favorite face makeup this summer.
Age: 18 & Under Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium Hair: Brunette Eyes: Brown
I have combination skin. This product made me SO OILY. It had a "sticky" finish and no amount of powder, loose and pressed, made it any more matte. Don't like it, but my friends mother who has dry skin really enjoys it. So this wan't the product for ME, but good for people with dry skin! :)
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination, Fair Hair: Blond Eyes: Green
Good easy to use product. This has turned into my secret weapon for gym make up. No one knows you're wearing anything and you feel a bit better going out without your face on...
When i've worn this people have commented on how good my skin looks.
I would recommend if your skin is blemish free but a little dull.
Avoid like hell if your skin is greasy!
Mix a bit into your foundation if you want a more dewy finish.
Age: 36-43 Skin: Acne-prone, Fair-Medium Hair: Brown Eyes: Brown
This is basically just a tinted moisturizer, so certainly not for anyone with oily and blemish-prone skin.

Goes on smoothly and blends well. A little goes a long way, and it evens out my skin. I don't have problem skin, so the light coverage is perfect, especially during the summer. It seems to hold up well against heat/sweat, and moisturizes my dry skin more than some tinted moisturizers I've used in the past, including the very well-reviewed, and rather expensive, Laura Mercier TM. I even think it matches my skin tone better than Laura Mercier's TM in Sand, which I think makes me look a tad orange.
