So one of my fabulous blogging buddies, Nicole, did a post about the Garnier Skin Renew Miracle Skin Perfector BB Cream a few weeks back over at her blog. So since its a widely known fact that I'm obsessed with any and all beauty products, I decided to give it a try too!
Now I've never tried any sort of BB cream before so I didn't really know what to expect. My skin can get pretty oily throughout the day so I never used to like putting moisturizers or creams on my face especially with the brutal humidity here on Guam.
Anyway, so Garnier says that this product instantly renews, brightens, evens, and hydrates your skin. Also, it has SPF in it so it protects some harmful effects of the sun. Okay, so let's try this sucker out, shall we?
My first impression: Goopy. Yes, goopy. Definitely not as creamy as I thought it would be. Its very thin and I would consider it to be a bit runny. I guess I was thinking it would be more like a foundation because it is pigmented. Guess not. Lol.
Okay, so here's my bare face
Now half of my face (my right, your left)
Now the whole face
And in even worse light
I really can't say that there was a dramatic difference, but I did notice that my skin tone was a bit more even and the cream did conceal some of the redness in my cheeks as well as lighten a few of my pimples a bit. But since I wear makeup almost every day and it covers my face anyway, I can't say that this product was really worth it. (I bought this for $16.49 at Kmart, by the way.) Oh, and don't mind my tan, we went to the water park this weekend again. Lol.
I guess this could be a great product for those who don't wear makeup all the time, or for the weekends when I usually give my face some breathing time. Other than that I'm not sure how often I'll use this. I'm going to try using it under my makeup and see how that works out. Hopefully it doesn't make my face even more oily. But if it does, I also picked up these babies:
So there you have it. That's my review of Garnier's BB Cream! Hope you found this helpful in some way. And if you've got any products you'd like me to try out, I'd love to hear about them!
