Garnier BB Cream Reviews

Hello girls, what’s up? I recently bought the Garnier BB cream. I know a bit late as BB and CC creams became an instant hit as soon as they were launched. Actually, I had been sticking to my sunscreen and foundation combo for daily use. I picked this bright benefit cream on recommendation of my cousin who swears by it!! Read on below to know more about this multi-tasking product which gives light coverage, is skin tinted, gives protection against UV rays, moisturizes and smells good too.

My experience with Garnier BB Cream:

I am really happy and satisfied with the multitasking BB cream. This BB cream is sadly available in a single shade in India. Luckily enough for me, the available
shade matches my skin tone, pretty well.

It instantly gives a kind of healthy glow and a light coverage suitable enough for a workplace or a casual hang out with friends. It works well as a day cream as it also contains an SPF of 24. It would be an ideal moisturizer for oily skin. However, my skin needs an extra dose of moisturizing lotion which I apply beneath this BB cream but I am not complaining as I still get to skip my sunscreen and foundation. This BB cream smells pleasant, somewhat citrus and since the fragrance vanishes within minutes of application, it would not irritate your nose. It sets with a matte finish and stays as it is at least 4 hours in an indoor environment. I have worn it outdoors for a couple of times and it is partly, sweat resistant, too.

It is available in a small trial pack costing just 69 rupees and you should give it a try. Even if it does not impress you, you would not waste a lot of money. It did not break me out and in my view, you are quite likely to go and grab another pack for sure!

Would I recommend this product again?

Yes, I really recommend it as it is an all in one product. However, if the shade does not match your skin tone very well then you might go and try Lakme CC cream which offers two shades.
