I love this bb cream! It glides right onto my skin and gives a very natural texture. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone who has bad skin. This product is more for someone who just wants to even out their skin tone to give that flawless look! I would buy this product again because its really subtle and natural!

I have a love hate relationship with this product. I love my Sephora bb creams, but I wanted a cheap one for my vacation because I knew between the ocean and the sun I would be using it like water! My skin is acne prone, oily, but also gets dry if not properly moisturized. This has a very dewy finish, so for my oily skin I did top it off with a little powder. I found it blended well and oxidized very quickly compared to most bb creams, especially the asian ones that look ashy or orange for 10 minutes. Because of the super shiny finish, I'll continue to use it but only as my back up option. I have to say though, my skin improved drastically from using it. It didn't overly aggravate my acne (I noticed a couple small bumps, nothing major), and over all my complexion is smoother, and my redness has really toned down, from using this. It's decent coverage for a bb cream (they aren't foundation and won't cover like one), not the best but certainly not the worst. For the price it's an unbeatable product.

I honestly don't understand the hype of this. It's thick, doesn't blend well, sits on the skin, and sweats off my face. Ick.
BUT, I have found a way to make it work. I mix it in with a lighter, more luminous (Too Faced Beauty Balm ((Which I don't like by itself))) BB Cream. Together, they make a very pretty, dewy BB Cream. It makes me look healthy and radiant. I have an oily T-Zone and surprisingly enough, I don't set these products with a powder. I wait until I get oily, blot, then dab on Milani's Mulitasking Powder. I love the combination.
OVERALL: I wouldn't use this product by itself. If I didnt find a way to use it, it would be in the trash can. I dont reccomend this for oily skin ladies (or men), at all.
I absolutely hate this . It NEVER sinks into my skin. I ended up LOVING the TF BB Cream, and using it by itself. I hate this, a lot. A complete waste of 15 $.

First of all this is not for someone with oily skin. I have combo skin with a yellow undertone. I've been out in the sun a few times this summer so I have developed a nice little tan, I needed something to get me by till I am back to my normal skin tone and able to use my regular foundation again. During the summer months here in Florida it gets really hot and humid, so a BB cream was my go-to option (nothing cakey or heavy please). I have used Estee, Clinique, Smashbox, Bobbi Brown, and a few other ones I can't remember (must not have been that good if I can't remember them right?), but for the price of this one, I think it is pretty good. I will say though it does oxidize a bit. And as for for that heavy cakey look, you gotta blend blend blend. Use your fingers and work that product in!

When this first came out, I was in the drugstore within seconds, practically drooling over this product and doing a perfect impression of 'ShutUpAndTakeMyMoney'. When I first started wearing makeup in early high school, I plunged into research about alternatives to heavy, fussy skin bases such as foundation and concealer, and found out about Asian BB creams. I purchased a couple from Amazon and such, and despite the hefty shipping price from Asia to London, they were fantastic. So when Garnier released this, at around £7, I was pretty excited. I bought the lightest shade of three, 'Light', which matched my pale-outdoorsy complexion perfectly - but I imagine the shade range must have been trouble for many. However, once I applied this, wore it out for a day and returned home, I threw this right back into the back of my makeup box and returned to my favourite Asian BB cream. THIS WAS NOT GOOD FOR ME. Having oily skin, even as I applied the cream, the texture is thick and oily, and leaves a heavy residue. The coverage is minimal, and the Garnier BB cream has an odd, almost glittery/shimmery finish, which even for someone who had perfectly clear skin, like I did at the time, did not complement anyone's skin. It looked greasy. It felt sticky and strange. It faded and left orangey streaks of oxidisation. Honestly, this is a product that works differently for every person. But I will certainly not be buying this again, and I think many have had the same opinion, because not long after the launch of Garnier's BB Blemish Balm Miricle Skin Perfector, they launched a Oil Free version, which is, hopefully, an improvement on this terrible mistake of a product.

I liked it, but something you'll definitely want to try to see if it works for you. It's really hard for me to find something that matches my skin tone and this was a miracle for me haha. It covered my imperfections really well and gave me just the write amount of color.
As a tip to anyone who already has it, if the color is a little strong blend it with your daily facial moisturizer. It tones it down a bit and makes it less cakey on your skin :)

This product is really bad. I got a sample of this, I am glad I could try this before I would have any crazy idea to buy it! First of all, it made my face really shiny and sticky (and I have normal skin type) and it was rubbing off too. I also do not think it has the best ingredients, but I wont bother about looking into it, as I do not like this BB cream!

This cream makes my forehead look like a mirror by the end of the day - so oily! I like the colour but that's about it. Back to Cover Girl Smoothers Tinted Mousturiser I go!

I had read about BB creams and saw this one one day when I was at the drug store. I decided to try it out being that this was inexpenisive compared to the dept. store brands. I bought the med/tan one, I have an Olive skin tone and tend to get tan during the summer. I liked this cream so far but haven't used it long enough to see any benefits. It does give you a dewy look which you can tone down with powder. So after trying this out for a week, my face completely broke out. I really liked the dewy finish of this product but being that we have a heat wave this BB cream made my T-zone feel like an oil spill. Sad to say I won't be using this anymore, maybe I will try it out again during the winter months when my skin tends to get drier.

I think B.B creams are definitely a product you'd want to try before buying. There are so many bad reviews on this but I honestly thought this was good on my skin type. My skin gets a bit oily and shiny, but this cream applies very very smoothly and did not accentuate my pores. Unlike the Marcelle BB cream, this did not feel heavy but rather quite breathable. So I say get a sample and give it a try.

I don't like this. It feels really cheap: the packaging, the smell and the texture. It's really not a miraclecream.
Looks ok on my skin but I would not by it again.

I've read so many good things about B.B. Creams that when I seen this in the store, I had to give it a try! Alas, I was let down by this B.B. Cream. I was surprised at how watery it was and it didn't give me an even all over coverage. For what little it covers/corrects the product really made my face feel oily while wearing it. Which wouldn't be so bad if it worked B.B. wonders on my skin. BUT, it didn't.. in fact after 5 mins of applying the product it was so oily that it wanted to melt off. So overall, I wouldn't recommend this! *If you're in the market for B.B. Creams look around online for reviews to get an idea before you buy!!

I have used Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer in Sand (and Nude) and like this almost as well. At first it seems that the color is off but after doing the blend blend blend it's okay. And then I deal with ... is it too greasy, oily... but then it actually absorbs in and looks great. Must be my age. LOL... Later in the day I look at my skin and I always say to myself - hey it looks pretty good..... I did buy a back up so I must like it.
EDITED: Gave backup to my daughter. I just find it to be too oily for me. I noticed Garnier has a newer formula for oily skin so that might be the ticket

One of the worst BB Creams i have bought! 1) it "melts" as soon as I apply powder 2) it pills on my face 3) its extremely oily and moisturizing.. TOO moisturizing.
My skin type is combination, but sometimes during the summer i get really oily. I used this the other day, and I decided to use some translucent powder on top of the bb cream because it was a warm sunny day. A few seconds after apply the powder, i was starting to apply other makeup products and I noticed that it was melting and pilling. I was really upset because was so expensive (for drugstore makeup). The shade was a perfect match for me (medium/dark).. i just wish it wasnt so oily and moisturizing. I geuss i can try to use it during the winter as it gets really cold and dry.

This is overall a good BB cream, it just was not for me. I have oily skin, and when I tried this, I immediately felt sticky and oily. All day I had the urge to wash my face and start all ove, almost like my skin couldn't breath! It has great skin benefits, I wanted to love it- however with my skin, it just won't work! Maybe I will try again in the winter time, but for the rest of the year, sadly it's a miss for me!

I have super oily skin and acne scarring but wanted something lighter than my DW for summer days, tried the first BB cream and it left me shiny even with finishing powder, then I got the new oily skin one which is soo much better, matte effect and lasts way longer, I use matte moisturiser then BB then LG balance and brighten, and it will last about 5hrs before touch up. Its non-ccomedogenic so great if you have open large pores like me. Would buy again.

I use this product on days when I don't want to wear foundation as it is a lighter alternative. It certainly gives a 'dewy' appearance, although sometimes it looks more oily than dewy so I always dust a bit of power over the top! I have very dry skin caused by my acne treatment and this works as a good tinted moituriser that doesn't cause breakouts. However the staying power isn't great and as a BB cream it is quite heavy so I would be wary of using it with a foundation.

I loved the way this made my skin look--dewy, smooth, and clean--like I had natural luminous skin. Unfortunately, it slides off in seconds if your skin is just the tiniest bit oily or if you sweat just a little. I was just starting to sweat but not full on sweating one day and in the 3 minutes it too me to walk outside to my car, the BB cream had already started sliding off my face and looked really gross. That particular day wasn't even a hot day, just a normal summer morning. Seems to me that this will only work for those with perfect skin who never sweat, which is no one I know. I am also not happy with the limited shade selection of BB creams. the Light/Medium was a little too pink for my olive-toned NC-25 complexion.
