Review: Garnier B.B Cream

I've never tried a B.B cream before but i have heard many good things about them so when I saw this at Rite-aid i decided to give it a try.

I got mine is the shade Light/Medium. It has spf 15, Vitamin C + Mineral Pigments. It is Non-comedogenic (won't clog pores), gentle to skin and non greasy.

It claims to Instantly:
Renew radiance
Brighten complexion
Even skin tone and blur imperfections
Hydrate the skin for 24 hours.

My thoughts:
When I first put this on my skin it blended perfectly, matched my skin tone (looks a little dark in the picture but that is because I didn't fully blend it in so you could see it),felt light weight and smooth. I also noticed like the claim that it instantly brightened my skin. My skin had a really pretty glow to it but did not look greasy. After a few minutes my skin felt hydrated and soft, not sticky like a foundation would feel. Now since this is not a foundation it did not cover any imperfections. Which is fine with me my skin has been better then ever and I have little to cover up anymore.

On a everyday basis this is really nice with some concealer and a little powder over. However I tend to wear just a tiny bit of this under a light layer of foundation. Just because I love the flawless look of foundation.

I have very oily,acne prone, sensitive skin and this product worked pretty good for me. It didn't break me out or make my face any more oily.

However, I haven't noticed a huge difference in the look of my skin over time from this product. I also saw that it only came in 2 shades which is a little downfall but between the 2 shades it might work for most people. It is also a little pricey. Around $12 at rite-aid ( I think I got mine for around $10 with my wellness card) but I feel like you get a ton of product.

Overall I really like this product. I'm excited to try it in the summer when i wear less makeup! I love the glow it gives my skin and the hydration.

Let me know if you try or have tried this!

  1. Haven't tried the Garnier one but I've got the new Estee Lauder one (review on my blog if you were interested!) and the 17 one, I love both of them but similarly to you I don't know if they've changed my skin in the longterm x
