My Take On The Product :
I am much more satisfied with Garnier BB Cream. It comes in a sleek squeeze tube with silver colour screw cap. I need a very small quantity of it for my whole face and neck. It is just like tinted moisturizer with some extra beauty routine. I use it when I don’t want a heavy makeup or when I am lazy to use too many products on my face. This Cream is not too runny in texture nor thicker. It is light weight and creamy in texture. This comes in only one shade and Garnier claims that its specially formulated for Indian skin tones. Thus its apt for medium skin tones also. But layering technique won’t work cause it may make you look ashy.
It does give a medium to sheer coverage. Within 3 to four hours it may turn oily a bit. So I suggest you to use loose powder to have a matte look. personally I like such dewy look so I use loose powder or compact only on my T zone as turns oily more quickly. Its really helpful to create a natural look with a sheer coverage but it doesn’t cover the blemishes. you will need a concealer to cover your dark circles and blemishes. And to have a full coverage you can go with two layers provided you set it your makeup with loose powder.
It stays for 5 to 6 hours only. It does moisturises my skin, since I have oily skin I don’t use additional moisturizer. Dry skin people really need a good moisturizer below this BB Cream. It doesn’t turn greasy. It has SPF 24 / P+++ which protects skin from UVA / UVB.
Good About Garnier :
- Convenient and handy for travel.
- Has SPF.
- Light weight and creamy texture makes it easy to blend.
- Affordable and easily available
Bad About Garnier :
- Comes only in one shade
- Dry skin people need extra moisturizer.
- It doesn’t cover any dark spots, dark circles or any kind of pigmentations.
My Verdict :
This BB Cream gives a medium to sheer coverage giving a natural finish to your skin. But calling it a miracle Cream will be in vain cause it doesn’t give instantly perfect skin. For me its like a tinted moisturizer with little brightening effects which is apt for daily use.
I would recommend this to people who don’t like using makeup on daily basis. This will hydrate you skin and also acts as a sunscreen.
