Garnier came up with a B.B. cream and I was very eager to try it out!
I've heard a lot of good things about B.B. creams and about their healing properties on a sensitive/ blemish prone skin!
So what is exactly a B.B. cream?
BB cream, also known as Blemish Balm, Blemish Base or Beblesh Balm, is a cosmetic item sold mainly in East and Southeast Asia.
BB creams come in a variety of different formulations and qualities. Some are said to have skin whitening or brightening properties. Others are anti-acne, some are anti-wrinkle, some are intended to even out skin tone, and yet others to lighten blemish scars. BB creams are sometimes used like a primer under foundation, and if tinted may even replace foundation and some newer ones will have functions of primer, foundation, moisturizer, sun block, pore minimization and skin refining together which can save time and money in make-up.
In recent years BB cream has gained a huge following for its skin-regenerating functions and is now also widely used in Asia to provide natural-looking skin coverage. It has been named "the secret of Korean actresses", which gained it large exposure in Asian markets.
Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector
Daily All-in-one B.B. Cream
Immediately perfected skin:
- Evens tone & boosts glow
- Blurs imperfections
- Smoothes fine lines
- 24 hr hydration
- SPF 15 UV protection
For perfected skin in just one step, Garnier has combined a Vitamin C derivative known for its antioxidant and illuminating properties, with mineral pigments to unify the complexion, for a sheer and natural look.
Garnier B.B. cream provides a good coverage and a good level of hydration.
When I use this product, I don't need to apply my daily moisturiser and my foundation, as this B.B. cream is both these things in one!
Garnier B.B. cream comes in two different shades:
light and medium.
At my local drugstore (Drogerie Markt), where I bought this product, they only had it in medium.
Even though I'd normally go for the light shade, I bought it anyways, because I was so eager to try it out!
Luckily, I can definitely make it work even on my light skin tone, but if I were to repurchase it, I'd look out for the light shade!
Overall, I like this product, as it really does give you an illusion of a perfect skin, it blurs imperfections and smoothes the fine lines, while providing a good level of hydration!
However, there is one thing this product failed to do :(
I've had really high expectations that this B.B. cream would clear my skin from the blemishes (I was going through a really bad skin period!), but what it did was, it only gave me the illusion of a perfect skin, once the make up was off, my blemishes were still there!
And it didn't even help to make them dry and clear up faster, or prevent the forming of a new ones!
So keep this in mind when purchasing this B.B. cream!
I'd say it's actually suitable for all skin types, especially for a dry skin, as it is very good at providing a 24hr hydration and smoothing the fine lines (dry skin types are usually more prone in developing wrinkles & fine lines!).
