Couple months ago, I received a sample of Garnier Skin Renew Miracle Skin Perfector BB Cream in the mail, which I signed up for via Facebook. As it was my first time trying BB Cream, I was a bit excited since it seems to have many skin-helping properties.
Firstly- this BB Cream is said to
- even skin tone
- brighten skin
- hydrates 24 hours
- renew skin
- SPF 15 sun protection
I used it last month and I just got around to reviewing this. For this product, a little bit goes a long way- a pea sized managed to cover most of my face. I wore it for a day (approximately 10 hours) and here are my thoughts:
- It didn’t dry out my skin, but it did feel a bit sticky at the end of the day.
- Minimum coverage, but it reduced a bit of redness around my nose
- Although I received the Light/Medium colour, I still felt it was a bit darker compared to my natural skin complexion.
I didn’t really see any effect in “brightening” or evening in the skin tone, as I looked fairly the same after, except a bit darker. I think is easier to dab the product around then using a finger and blending it in.
The cream also had a floral-fruity smell to it, similar to the shampoo. If I closed my eyes and smelled the product, I wouldn’t have thought it was BB Cream. To me, this is more of a tinted moisturizer than an actual BB Cream. I don’t think this BB Cream was worth the hype!
Anyone else experienced this product? What BB Cream do you use?
