I really like the consistency of this and it gives me really good natural coverage! It makes my skin look so even / I love it!

I love that it has SPF. I was thinking of using the one for oily skin but I decided to try this since it has SPF. I use it everyday and stock up when it's on sale. I get compliments on how even my skin is and it's basically because of the light natural finish without having to do so much in the mornings. Definitely a staple to me!

I use Garnier BB miracle skin perfector daily. I love it but I picked up the one for sensitive skin by accident as I didn't notice the little pink stripe at the bottom of the packaging. I don't have particularly sensitive skin. This sort of balled up into clumps and I put it on instead of covering my face. At first I thought maybe my moisturiser hadn't absorbed properly when I applied it but no, I was careful to make sure that didn't happen and then I kept having these horrible skin coloured smears on my face. I had to abandon pretty much the whole tube. I have not abandoned the non-sensitive version though - I still wear it every day.

I bought this BB Cream as it was on sale and the usual BB Cream I buy was not.
the first day I used this, I noticed that my face was unnaturally, overly shiny. It also is not long lasting at all, which is a shame. I really wanted to like this.
I'll be going back to my trusty Maybelline Dream Pure BB Cream.

True to it's name, it does work with my sensitive skin and it's moisturising enough for normal to slightly dry skin.

In terms of application, It dries to a weird consistency quite quickly, which makes it cakey and hard to blend giving a patchy finish. The trick to using this is to never ever put this on in poor lighting and make sure you work QUICKLY only putting on little bits at a time. Do not try to attempt to do your whole face at the same time.

The finish isn't too bad but I prefer a more natural finish. It's a "people can tell you're wearing foundation" sort of look. Light-Medium coverage.

Given you use this BB cream right, it's not that bad but there's a lot better options out there which you just put on quickly and walk out the door. I feel I have to work to hard with this BB cream to not make it look cakey and patchy so it's not worthy enough for a repurchase.

Wow, this is quite bad. My skin wasn't irritated at all by this BB cream and the coverage is ok, if you don't mind having a bright orange complexion. Also, the cream absorbs very poorly - it formed balls on my face, particularly along the jaw line. I just couldn't keep using it and threw it away - at least it wasn't expensive.

I saw this BB cream on sale at the shops, and because I had heard all the good reviews about its coverage and the even skin finish it provides, I thought I'd give it a go. I put the 'light' tester on my wrist and loved the soft creaminess, coverage and how perfectly it suited my skin colour, so I made sure I picked up the bottle that was the exact same as the tester and took it home.

However I was extremely disappointed with the results. The bottle I had bought was definitely in the shade 'light', however it seemed a bit too orange and dark for my skin. I applied it on my face using my fingers, as I prefer to do with all BB creams, and noticed that the cream had a horrible, almost cakey consistency to it. It was very difficult to blend and dried quickly, turning into those horrible, sticky balls all over my face. The finish was nowhere near perfect - an unnatural looking glow, looked shiny in the wrong places, felt a little sticky and a huge lack of coverage.

I've been trying to get my moneys worth with this product - first I tried applying it using a brush, which made my brush look and feel disgusting, and had to be thoroughly washed so that I could use it with other foundations. Then I tried mixing it in with other foundations and BB creams, but it brought the cakey consistency into the mix, and just makes each new mix look even worse on my skin. So far the only thing thats worked is putting 4 small dots on each corner of my face and blending - then covering with another liquid and then powder foundation. This technique has surprisingly helped with coverage on bad skin days - however its a bit unnecessary and in my opinion, is way too much makeup for my face.

Even though I bought this when it was on sale I wish I'd spent my money elsewhere. I don't recommend this BB cream to anyone, and I've learned not to trust the testers!!

Really disappointing!!! I've loved other garnier bb creams in the past but this one was nowhere near comparable! The colour (light) was alright for once, and felt quite creamy and moisturising but the coverage was awful!!! It wasn't even a -light- coverage, which I would have been happy with. It could work if you had next to perfect skin but with all of my acne scars I don't think this made any difference to them. I'll be able to use it up if I add abysmal amounts of concealer over it and use a setting spray to make it look less cakey but other than that I don't think I'll repurchase...

I have a sensitive quite dry skin and I had thought this would be a great option: cream and sort of foundation all in one. The foundation part is quite okay. It gives my skin a little bit a more even tone. I have some freckles and a few little moles, but it doesn't cover them. Doesn't have to, but it really doesn't as well. The cream part is really not enough for my skin. It makes my skin feel itchy and dry and hard. I don't have eczema or other skin problems, only a little bit sensitive dry skin, but nothing special. Maybe I will be good with this during the summer, but during the winter my skin can not handle this every day.

This review is for the Garnier BB cream miracle skin perfector in the sensitive skin variety. I am on my second tube of this and for the price point I think this is a very, very good product. I do have sensitive skin, it is combination to dry and is easily irritated by sunscreens, fragrances etc. I find that this BB cream does not irritate my skin, whereas I tried the normal skin variety and it did not suit my skin at all. It provides light coverage like a tinted moisturiser and stays put all day. It is fairly moisturising and I find I don't need a moisturiser underneath in summer, although it might be required for those in dry cold climates or with very dry skin. I took off a lippie for the colour range, there are only three options. I have pale skin and the light colour is verging on being too dark for me so I have to be careful to blend. I also took a lippie off for the packaging, as I bought one tube that had exploded out the wrong end in the box, which does not fill me with confidence! Overall, I recommend this product to people with sensitive skin that are looking for a tinted moisturiser that is cheap and will not irritate. Those of you wanting an Asian style BB cream will probably be disappointed with the coverage.
