REVIEW: Garnier Skin Renewal Miracle Skin Perfector B.B. Cream
Garnier Skin Renewal Miracle Skin Perfector B.B. Cream is the first BB Cream to hit drugstore shelves. It is a multi-benefit product that combines intense moisturizing skincare and immediate skin perfecting coverage.
To correct, brighten, even skin tone, provide UV protection and hydrate for 24 hours, all in one easy to use product.
I think the packaging is great. It's flip top is just as easy to use as a pump would be and I like that the product dispenses from the bottom so I never have to deal with the "ketchup bottle" problem when the bottle is almost empty.
It has a nice scent to it, a light perfume/fresh scent. Nothing overpowering or that lingers after you apply it.
It feels a lot like a lotion, not to thick and not watery or runny. That's what makes it so easy to apply, because its so smooth, it just glides right on.
The coverage is very light, it wont cover a pimple but it will even out your skin tone. It claims to brighten you skin and it does, but beware of pictures because the UV protection elements of the product will make you look WHITE in photos! So be sure to bronze it up if you plan on taking pics.
I have oily skin so the longevity of this product will vary depending on your skin type. I do lightly set my face with powder but in about 2 hours, my face does get shiny and if I touch my face, the product will smear and rub off on my hands or clothes. I don't mind this to much because I love how easy it is to apply every morning when im in a hurry. All I do is blot my face and reapply some light powder. If you want something that will last you the day without retouching and you have oily skin, this is not for you.
At about $13 at CVS, I think it is in a great price range since I do use this product on an everyday basis. Most drugstore foundations run around this price range.
I have oily skin so most foundations I use will start breaking down within a few hours. This one breaks down fairly quicker then my full coverage because it is so moisturizing and has a dewier finish unlike my matte foundations.
How It Applies
This is my go to face product because of this very reason! It applies SO easily and blends effortlessly! Im always in a hurry to get out the door in the morning so it only takes me a few seconds to apply.
This has quickly become one of my favorite products. It does have its drawbacks because of my skin type but it doesn't bother me to much. I have seen both positive and negative reviews on this product but I believe it all depends on what your skin type is and what you are looking for in a product. If you want long wearing, full coverage, this is not for you.
Have you tried Garnier BB Cream? What did you think?
