Garnier B.B. Cream

So my curiosity finally got the best of me and I gave in and bought a B.B. Cream. So I've been hearing a lot about these creams. A lot of people seem to like them. Well I looked into high end and low end creams and they all seem to claim to do the same thing. They're suppose to help even out skin tone some claim to help heal certain skin issues and they're suppose to have decent coverage. Some claim to to be and all in one. They claim to moisturize, conceal and give coverage. 

Well, I chose to go with a less expensive cream. To be honest it wasn't that cheap. Luckily I got it on sale. I have some mixed feelings about this product. I tried this out for about a week. I tried applying it with my beauty blender and a brush, it applies nicely either way. It gave me light coverage. It feels light and once your skin absorbs it it feels natural. 

Now the reason I only used it for about a week is  because I noticed my cheeks were starting to get more irritated. My usual face makeup routine requires concealer on my cheeks to even out the redness. Its not bad but I don't like the redness. So I also tried this cream with concealer and setting powder and I hated it! 

Now I wouldn't go as far as saying I won't purchase this again only because I found great use for it. I've been on a hunt for the right foundation color that matches my chest. Yes I said my chest. I don't like matching my foundation to my neck I feel like it still makes you look like you're wearing a mask. With that said I am now using this cream on my neck and it works great! I like that it blends my foundation color to my neck to my chest. Its a great median. 

So if you re looking to try B.B. Cream go ahead just be sure to buy it somewhere that allows you to return it, incase it doesn't work out for you. Just keep in mind it's not for all skin types. If you prefer full coverage makeup this probably isn't for you either. I can't speak for the higher end creams but this B.B. Cream offers medium coverage at the most.

  1. Awesome =] didn't know it's better to match your face color to your chest. I guess your neck is definitely a different color...considering it doesn't get much sun... So, it makes sense. =] It sounds like it'd be a good cream (with the sunscreen). But, I suppose they're trying to make it do too much. Nice article ;]
