Garnier Skin Renew Miracle Skin Perfector B.B. Cream

I've be eying this Garnier Skin Renew Miracle Skin Perfector B.B. Cream for a while now. Saw that it was on sale at CVS, so picked it up. I've never tried a B.B. Creams before so this would be my first time using one.

To get started let me tell you my skin type. I have combination skin, which gets oily on my forehead, nose and chin. I also get dry patches on my cheeks, around my nose and chin. Almost every thing I try seems to not help out my combination skin type. That's why I'm always looking for something new that will have lasting power. So I decided to give this a try.

If your not familiar with B.B. Creams, they originally formulated in Germany and then sold mainly in East and Southeast Asia. B.B. Creams provided a solution to a common skin problems. (from wiki)

From my experience I really believe in what this product claims. It' very moisturizing and goes on smoothly. Stays put all day and evens out my skin tone. The coverage is light-medium, which you can build up. I usually just use some concealer to cover up blemishes. Since I do have combination skin my cheeks, nose, chin and forehead gets oily so I do use a matte powder around these areas. I still use a moisturizer prior to this. It comes in two shade Light/Medium (which is the one I have) and Medium/Dark. Light/Medium seems to blend well with my skin tone. Also very hydrating.

Swatch on the back of my hand. I did a heavy swatch so you can see how well this B.B. Cream blends and also how it's leaves you with a healthy glow.

Here's my before and after pictures!



 As you can see my skin tone has even out, redness in my cheeks covered up pretty well. Also loving the shade, it almost looks like I have a slight tan. The before picture was taken a few days later. So that's why my shirt and hair is different. In the after I'm just wearing the Garnier Skin Renew Miracle Skin Perfector B.B. Cream. No concealer. A little goes a long way. I applied this B.B. Cream with clean fingers.

Over all I'm happy with the after! As you can see it blends really well with my light skin tone, and it's pretty hydrating on the skin. I say give this try! Great for normal to dry and combination skin. I would say if you have oily skin to use very little. You don't need much and powder up your oily zones.

What B.B Creams are you certainly using?

  1. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Garnier BB Cream. it smells nice too. However it gives me a dewier look than I like which i neutralize with a matte powder. it is also not very blendable so i use a buffing brush to apply. but overall, i love it! I hear the BB Creams from asia are THE best. i need to get my hands on some from Asia.
