I’ve been using the Garnier BB Cream in place of foundation or tinted moisturizer for a few weeks now, and I love it. It works well for me as an alternative because I find foundation to be too heavy much of the time, and tinted moisturizers tend to make my skin super shiny and gross, which leads to breakouts and general icky-ness. I do tend to have an oily t-zone, so I’ve been using a bit of powder to set the BB cream if needed. I’m loving the fresh, natural, flawlessness BB cream gives my skin. Partnered with Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush in Hot Tamale, it creates a great glowy effect perfect for spring and summer. The scent is also really nice, in my opinion. However, in a recent conversation on the subject, I was told that the Garnier cream smelled bad. But, I was speaking with a rep from Smashbox, who has its own BB cream (for about 3 times the price), so maybe she was biased. ;)
I have been raving about this product to everyone lately, and the proof is in the pudding; the past few days I haven’t even felt the need for any concealer! The moral of the story is, this is my official stamp of approval. The cream comes in two shades, and I use the light/medium, which provides a perfect match for my skin tone. Garnier’s “Miracle Skin Perfector” is available at drugstores nationwide or online for around $10 to $13. Check out Garnier's Facebook Page - they're running a sweepstakes for a year's supply!
