Well, it’s no secret that BB cream is a hot product these days and Garnier has one called, Garnier Skin Renew Miracle Skin Perfector B.B. Cream.
BB Cream stands for Beauty Balm or Blemish Balm.
They became wildly popular in Korea when a famous Korean actress credited BB cream for her flawless complexion. The Korean formulas are a bit more opaque with cooler undertones because in Asia they like the flawless porcelain skin.
The Western formulas that we use give a more glowing-with-health-skin. They’re somewhere between a tinted moisturizer and a medium coverage foundation.
I had not talked about the BB creams because I hadn’t tried one but I finally broke down and bought the Garnier BB cream. You can purchase Garnier BB cream at drugstores, Wal-Mart and some grocery stores for around $13.
Here’s what I like about the BB cream:
- I love the feel and flawless finish.
- If you like light coverage this is perfect!
- It goes on very easy and diminishes fine lines and wrinkles.
- It gives a radiant and healthy glow!
The down side:
- If you have oily skin it may feel too oily.
- I use a finishing powder to give it a matte finish.
- If you like a full coverage foundation this will be too sheer for you.
Because I love you guys, I’m showing a before and after picture.
Yikes! As you can see I need foundation!
The Garnier Skin Renew Miracle Skin Perfector B.B. Cream, evens out my skin tone and gives it a much healthier and flawless finish without looking like I have a ton of makeup on.
Garnier offers two shades: Garnier Skin Renew Miracle Skin Perfector B.B. Cream, Light and medium, 2.5 Fluid Ounce and Garnier Skin Renew Miracle Skin Perfector B.B. Cream, Medium and Deep, 2.5 Fluid Ounce. I’m using the medium/deep.
How to apply:
Place dots of the product on your face and gently rub in to your skin. If you have areas that need more product, add more BB cream to that area. (I use my Mary Kay Day Solution and eye cream but no moisturizer before applying the BB cream.)
