Too many BB creams are swarming in the market nowadays and I don’t know which one is the best for me…hence this constant search has led me to try all of them. Today I am going to review the Garnier BB Cream Miracle Skin Perfector. Yes Garnier claims it to be a miracle skin perfector…is it really one?? Well lets see
Product Description and Claims
Garnier describes it as an all in one cream which combines multiple beauty routine steps in one. Infused with the goodness of Vitamin C which keeps your skin cleansed and free of acne and blemishes, Almond extracts which improves cell rejuvenation and Brightening Minerals, the Garnier BB cream gives you a deeply moisturised and visibly radiant perfect look. In addition its SPF24 filter helps to protect the skin from UV rays too.
Overall Garnier claims that use of this BB cream gives
– Healthy Glow, even on dusky skin
– Even skin tone – but not as good as other BB creams in the market
-8 hour moisturisation
– Reduced Imperfection
-Sun protection with SPF 24
- Rs 99 for 18 g
- Rs 199 for 40 g
My Take On The Product
Garnier BB comes in a cute beige coloured tube with a screw cap. It has a long tip dispenser nose so there is no chance of the cream oozing out and causing a mess. It has a sweet flowery fragrance which lingers for some time.Coming to the cream itself, well the texture is somewhere between liquid and a cream, definitely a little more liquidy/runny than the other BB creams I have tried so far and hence it doesn’t feel heavy on the skin.
Now, this BB cream blends like a dream and doesn’t get patchy at all.It decently evens out the skin tone and imparts a subtle glow to the face like it claims, yet looks very natural.Now, personally I was very happy with the moisturizing part. It does moisturize my skin well including the drier areas. But for people with extremely dry skin all around the year, use of an extra moisturizer is advisable on the contrary people with oily skin will have no trouble of shininess or oiliness for 3-4 hours atleast. One of the biggest drawbacks of the cream is its coverage. Unfortunately the coverage is low, and it doesn’t cover up age spots, blemishes, acne or under eye circles, you will need an extra concealer for that.
I don’t believe that any cream can actually make you fairer,and the same applies to this one too. It will not miraculously make your skin instantly fair but yes, it does impart a nice glow to the face like mentioned before. One of the biggest positives of this cream is that it stays on for a very long time. It easily it stays on the face for 6-8 hours, making the face look reasonably fresh.
- Blends easily
- Evens out skin tone pretty well
- Not greasy
- Imparts a soft glow
- Stays on for a longer time
- Moisturizes well
- Doesn’t make Oily skin too shiny
- Low Coverage – Infact less coverage than Pond’s BB Cream
- Comes in only one shade
- Doesn’t lighten your skin tone much – slight let down for girls looking for instant fairness
Garnier BB Cream is definitely not a Miracle Skin Perfector but not very bad too. It is a good as an everyday make up product. It gives a good glow to the face and stays put for long hours. Girls having combination skin and the ones requiring less coverage will love this BB cream. As for the rest, its more of a tinted moisturizer than a BB Cream.
