Garnier Skin Renew Miracle Skin Perfector BB Cream, Combination to Oil Skin Review

By now I'm sure most of us have tried bb creams, if not at least heard of them. I recently received a free sample from bzzagnt to try the Garnier BB Cream. I honestly had low expectations from this product, but boy was I wrong!

The packaging is basic, nothing fancy but that's ok. One minor problem is if this is left upside down and you go and open it, it's going to drip out. This formula is very thin and runny.

Here's a swatch of the shade I have in Light/Medium. This color is a great match for me at the moment but I'm not sure how well it's going to work in the summer when I have a bit more color. The great thing though is this comes in different shades so I can pick up a darker color if I need to.

This product is amazing! It provides great coverage and isn't cakey. I have been using Urban Decay Naked Skin for was my hg foundation but since I've had the Garnier BB Cream I haven't touched my Naked Skin! It lasts all day and doesn't fade away or oxidize.

It contains an SPF 20 which is great. It claims to reduce shine, even out skin tone, minimize your pores and hydrate your skin and I have to say it definitely does all of those for me. I have very oil skin and find I don't get very shiny throughout the day but I do set with powder. I have some discoloration on my chin and redness on my cheeks and it covers that up great. This leaves a nice satin finish to the skin. I also haven't had any breakouts whatsoever.

The Garnier BB Cream comes in three colors, light/medium, medium/deep, and deep.

Here's a pic of me wearing my Garnier BB Cream in light/medium. Taken with iphone sorry it's grainy. Please excuse my fly-aways lol!

I definitely recommend you check out the Garnier BB Cream because it's aaaaahhhhhmaaaazing!! I will be repurchasing this for sure!

You can find this at your local Target, Walmart, or drugstore for about $12 to $13.

Thanks for the review. I have been using this BB Cream for almost a year - and yes, like you said it's amazing. Great coverage and flawless color. Although I want to try other BB cream, I'd love to re-purchase this again.

When you get a chance, please take a look at my beauty and skin care blog. Thanks!

I wished this would have worked for me but it didn't and scent was really strong for me it gave me a headache :(

From what I've seen, this is the best drugstore bb cream for oily skin. I need to try it! lol
