Review: Garnier Skin Renew Miracle Skin Perfector BB Cream (Combination to Oily Skin)

For a while now, I've been on the hunt for a good drugstore BB Cream. Especially now for summer... Sometimes you just don't want to walk out with a full face of makeup on a hot day (Am I right?)! So, I finally decided to pick up the very buzzed about, Garnier BB Cream. I've already had it for about two week and thought that I was ready to share my take on it with you.

You should know:

  • This review is only on the combination to oily skin version of this BB Cream.
  • It's oil free.
  • Contains Broad Spectrum SPF 20.
  • Comes in four shades: Fair, Light/Medium, Medium/Deep, & Deep.

Its claims: Immediately mattifies, minimizes pores, and conceals imperfections to give skin a naturally smooth, flawless finish. 




Pros:
  • Feels very light on the skin (you forget you have it on).
  • Does not clog pores or cause breakouts.
  • Has a matte finish.
Cons:
  • Does not conceal redness or imperfections.
  • Does not minimize the appearance of pores.
  • Does not have buildable coverage.
  • Is runny & watery (be very careful when unscrewing the cap, product may disperse).
  • Does not stay matte for more than an hour.

This product may not have worked for me but, there are still a lot of people who do enjoy it . If you look at the box it comes in, it states under "purpose" of the product: "sunscreen" (which is very interesting). It gives me the impression that it is more of an "in-between step", and not meant to be used on its own (and substitute foundation). 

Regardless, let me know if you enjoy this product and why it works for you! But for now I think I'll just stick to my Jouer Matte Moisture Tint. 

Thank you for stopping by!

Until next time!

  1. Hello! I'm so glad I've found a blogger from Puerto Rico!

    I've heard so much about BB Creams but I'm thinking about making one myself rather than buying one. Just like this one, they don't tend to cover imperfections that much.

    Anyways, good luck with the blog. And it would be lovely if you visited mine at www.bohemica.co. We're just starting out, but I hope you enjoy it.

    Thanks.

    :)
