I was generally pleased with Garnier BB Cream. It definitely blurred my freckles and evened my skin tone. My only hang-ups about it is 1. the fragrance is OBNOXIOUS and overwhelming. 2. it felt a tad sticky, or perhaps heavy, within the first hour of application. 3. there are only 2 shades available. I would NOT recommend this product if you are prone to oily skin, it will melt right off your face. I have very dry skin in the winter, so it suited me well.

This stuff was not meant for me. It made me orange and it was splotchy and just over all did not give enough of a nice finish for me to even use it occasionally. After a while I would have dry spots that the bb cream would cling to and exaggerate, and then other spots where there would be no foundation at all. It did apply nicely and looked ok for the first 5 minutes of wear. The colour "light" was also far too dark for my nw15ish skin.

This product seemed nice on the shelf but when I brought it home and used it was a different story. Once I put this on I immediately noticed that my skin was very oily, and even after going through my makeup routine I had to wipe down areas of my face. Also, it seemed too dark for my very light skin tone.

I like this product but i dont LOVE it. The consistency of this product is very thick but glides on very easily. there is no enough color though. This is the first ever BB cream that I owned. It doesnt cover blemishes.its very sheer. and can feel a little bit heavy. The feeling of, yes u can smell that u have something on ur face makes u feel that the cream is heavy? and it transfer easily to ur shirt. It has nothing to do for what is has claimed for like invisible imperfections or what not.
However i dont regret buying this product its great for everyday tinted moisturizer if you just dont feel like putting on make up.

This was the first BB Creme I ever purchased and I honestly hated it. After experimenting with other BB Cremes ranging from dirt cheap to high end, I can honestly say this is the worst one I have ever used.
PRICE
The price for this product is £11 (or $17) which seems pretty hefty for a drugstore product especially considering there a lot better BB Cremes out there for a cheaper price.
PACKAGING
There's nothing to really say about the packaging, it is a squeeze bottle that often clogged with me.
COLOUR
The colour range of this product is absolutely atrocious, all of the shades seem to be some obscure shade of orange as an undertone that leaves you with a horrible seam between the makeup and your skin no matter how much you blend.
FINISH
I hated the finish to this product as it was incredibly dewy, with or without powder this product always feels wet on your face and never seems to dry, it transfers incredibly easily. This broke me out multiple times.
OVERALL THOUGHTS
This product is a total train wreck, there are no skin benefits that it promises. I'd would rather smear my face in butter than use this product again. Butter would probably work better.

A must have! I am totally in love with this product. I cant understand the negative reviews as this is a Beauty Balm..not a foundation, its not going to give you full coverage. My skin is pretty decent, just abit uneven sking tone, large pores and undereye bags. The Garnier BB cream fixes all the above problems with the exception of underyeyes, i have to use a concealer there. Overall for the price it does its job! It blurs imperfections and looks like my skin...The apckaging is great as well. My only Con would be that it leaves a somewhat sticky residue behind and a slight white cast, also can get oily but i have oily skin and can deal with the cons, great product, will definately purchase again.
Edit. This works well in Winter, too greasy for summer

A staple in my make up bag. The cream is of a nice thick consistency, a little goes a long way and it blends really well. It smells fresh and citrusy like all Garnier products, and is really pleasant to put on.
The coverage is just enough to even out skintone and not look like you're wearing something on your skin. It moisturises very well and has SPF which makes it great under make up for those that are put off by conventional greasy/ opaque white sunscreens on the face.

I like to apply this product to freshly cleansed skin, with a bit of concealer under the eyes for a very natural and glowy look. It's a great way to "detox" from heavy foundations, and great for day time wear on weekends!

**April 2014 Update**

Having used this product for almost two years now, I think I am no longer that in love with it. I think this is because BB creams and CC creams have now completely overtaken the moisturiser market, and there is a lot to choose from. I think for the price, this product is fantastic. However after having tried the Chanel CC cream, I can't see how I'll ever go back.

This product has been very good to me! Blends nicely and doesn't make me oily. Although my skin tone is more on the medium side rather than fair....I should have bought the fair-medium instead of the medium-dark. This product has a lot of yellow in it...so I wouldn't recommend it to someone with very fair skin. My skin feels hydrated and looks brighter.

I have very oily and sensitive skin. I bought the BB cream because a friend recommended it. Its not the best product for oily skin. 2 days after usage my face was covered wit whiteheads and massive breakouts.
It provides very less coverage on my medium colored skin and it has an irritating conditioner like fragrance as well. Very unhappy at the moment. Have to take a medicine to get rid of the zits.

Firstly I will say that this product left my skin feeling greasy after a few hours, but I'm guessing this is down to my skin being combination/oily so I will purchase the Oil-Free version next time. That is the only bad thing.
When I first put it on my hand to apply I thought wooow this is going to be way too dark but it turns out fine with proper blending and making sure you blend into your neck because it is slightly darker but not too obvious (I used light). It matches my skin tone really well!

It brightened my complexion, slightly helps dark circles, makes my face definitely look more flawless but in a natural way and is a good product to buy if you don't want to spend too much time messing about with your skincare and make-up routine because it's an all rounder.

Just make sure you get the right one for your skin type.
