I first discovered BB cream a few weeks ago as I was reading a review on the latest beauty trends. I was very intrigued by the claims that this particular BB cream made, although i was very hesitant to try it at first as i've suffered with acne for years and find that most liquid make ups and moisturisers tend to make my acne flare up. I've been using I.d Bareminerals (in medium beige) for years now and have found that to be the only make up that doesn't flare my skin right up. After doing a bit of research i decided to try the Garnier BB Miracle cream and i'll honestly say i'm very very impressed. I've been using the product for about 1.5 weeks now and if it were any other liquid make up i would have broken out twice over by now... but this BB cream seems to have calmed my skin down completly. And not only has it calmed it right down, but it also looks smoother and feels incredibly soft and seems to have a healthy glow about it. I don't think this is a placebo affect, I have seen some remarkable results. I read a few reviews about people who had acne scars and found this formula too light of a coverage... I found this in the begining too but the more i use it, the less i can see my scarring. i know it's only been 1.5 weeks - but i feel as though some of my lighter scars are starting to blend into the rest of my skin and are no longer as noticable. In my view the only down side to most consumers would be the lack of colour selection. Personally the Light colour matches really well with my skin tone, but i can see how it would be too dark for most people. For those interested with my skin care routine (maybe those who also suffer with acne prone skin may be interested)... I use the Priori gentle cleanser and the Priori Barrier repair cream day and night as my primary skin care. I also use pure aloe vera gel day and night (after i cleanse and before i moisturise) and have found this to also have contributed to my skin improvements over the months. I use I.D bare minerals primer and then have been using the BB cream over the top of that. i usually don't use any other powders on top of the BB, just a bit of blush and i'm done. I hope this has been useful.
