I am on the fence over this product. I would give it 3.5 stars if possible.
First off, I am fair skinned and have issues with redness, tend to have patches of acne on certain spots, and am 21 y/o. Oily/combination skin.
I was using the Garnier BB cream for a while but it was so runny I decided to try this BB cream.
PRO: I was first attracted to this BB because it has SPF 30, and many of the other creams only have 15. However, it also tends to apply just like sunscreen.
CON: Application is difficult. It is the complete opposite of runny and is very thick. I would NOT say that it is cakey at all, but it is not easy to blend. If you don't mind spending two minutes trying to get the layering done perfectly on your face, you will probably love this product, as the end result is very nice.
PRO: It leaves a very dewy complexion, which I thoroughly enjoy.
CON: It is also relatively sheer, which was surprising since it was so thick. The sheerness/dewyness of the product left my skin very shiny and my zits popping out instead of covering them. I applied some loose powder on the t-zone areas, my chin, and my cheeks, and the shininess definitely calmed down. However, the redness of my zits did not go away.
I give it 3.5 stars because the end result could be wonderful for someone without severe redness or patches of very red acne on the skin. If you have that, go with the Garnier. The end result was quite nice everywhere (after powder) except for the acne splotch I have.
