Garnier BB Cream -- My new love.

Garnier BB Cream Review, photo, swatches
Suddenly there has been a surge of Bb Creams here in India. To be correct, a rise of tinted moisturizers under the name of BB Creams. They do provide some tint, a bit moisturization and most of them so have some amount of sunscreen. So, I do  not care of they are BB Creams or not, I I love them all. yes my friends, I have joined the band wagon as well.

Garnier BB Cream


I had bought this Garnier BB Cream quite some time ago. For the last two weeks , I have been religiously using it .

My experience: I had bought a small tube, rather, I bought the small tube to try out. The first time I opened the tube, I couldn't help noticing how nice it smelt. It smells a bit like Bourjois Healthymix Foundation and I love the scent. it is not strong so as to overpower your senses, but strong enough to be discernible and vanishes in a while.
At first I used a wee bit to cover my face. But then, I started using it say one good pea-size and that does the trick. It brightens up my face without leaving any cast and the right amount of moisture on my oily-combination skin works great! My skin looks so supple and so much 'alive'!!!
In case you are wondering, no, it does not provide any coverage at all. Since my blemishes are in check currently, I am skipping my foundation and leaning more towards this one. And since it is moisturizing, a bit on concealing and then a bit of loose powder saves my day! The SPF is not high, but still does work since my face has not tanned that considerably.

So, the Likes and the dislikes:

Likes:
  1. Inexpensive. 18 grams for 99INR ( I got a good discount) and 40 grams for 199 is a steal! I have been using the small tube for over two weeks and that too regularly.
  2. Mild floral scent.
  3. spreads and blends easily hydrating .
  4. perks up my complexion.
  5. My skin likes it. It kind of hydrates my oily-combination skin in summer. But in winter, I did need a thick layer of moisturizer underneath.
  6. Has a bit of sunscreen ( SPF 20) The PA factors have not been mentioned.
  7. Available almost everywhere.

Dislikes:
  • Doesn't provide coverage.
  • One shade for all skin tones!! Why? why? why?
Do I recommend? If you have oily or combination skin yes! But don't forget a touch of compact. If you have dry skin, wear a bit of moisturizer underneath.

Shall I repurchase? Planning to do so today since I might go out shopping. :)

    1. I think it might go with your complexion too Megha. As such the coverage is not much. So, shouldn't be a problem.

  3. Even I think they are more like TM in the name of BB's but they have fared well for those of us who need little concealing. It does makes me skin suppled and even toned. I agree with most of the points you mentioned.:)Nice review Nivedita!!

  6. Though it is just one shade, it worked better for me than Maybelline clear glow BB cream.

    1. I completely agree with you Maneeta. I wouldn't prefer creams that do not hydrate and rather sits heavy on the skin. This one saves the day by both hydrating and brightening which serves my purpose. And since it goes for my skintone, personally, I do not see why I should be unhappy about it. :P
