Garnier B.B. Cream
I just adore being a Bzzagent! They came through for me once again and offered me a great product to try and review! I'm not by any means saying that it's perfect, every product such as every individual has its flaws. This was the first time I had ever tried a B.B. cream. In fact I wasn't even sure what a B.B. cream was until I read the description. I am a loyal fan of Garnier products, hair care and moisturizers, so I was really excited to try their new B.B. cream also. B.B. I now know stands for beauty balms. They are "skin perfectors" which brighten,even skin tone,hydrate and provide SPF! B.B. creams are all the rage in Asian countries and the word has spread around the world! Garnier B.B. cream contains SPF15 uva/uvb sunscreen to help prevent skin damage. I personally would have preferred a higher SPF because I'm very light-skinned, but it's fine because you can just apply SPF before applying the Garnier B.B. cream. This cream also contains vitamin C and mineral pigments. The vitamin C is known to promote collagen production in your skin and it also gives it a fantastic glow. The mineral pigments even out your skin tone. Garnier B.B. cream is available in two shades, light-medium and medium-dark. I had no issue with this at all,but if you find that you are too light for the light-medium shade, then I would suggest you try mixing equal parts non-tinted moisturizer with the B.B. cream before applying. If you have dry skin like myself, I would moisturize your face a little before applying just enough to promote an even and smooth application.
To sum it up, I love this product. It's fast and easy to apply, it's leightweight,non-comedogenic(won't clog pores) ,it goes on sheer so your face doesn't look plastered, and I feel much more "put together" with very little time and effort! Pick one up today!
