Garnier BB Cream - Original
BB creams are growing in popularity over foundation. The craze started in Korea and has finally made its way over here. The BB creams moisturize, provide coverage with mineral pigments, give SPF 15 sun protection while also providing nutrients for the skin such as vitamin C.
I tend to prefer these over tinted moisturisers simply because the coverage is better. Also, tinted moisturisers tend to get oily during the day and coverage tends to thin out.
The Garnier BB cream is great, it does get a tad oily though for those with oily/combination skin. The medium shade is best for those with olive and medium skin tones and looks quite natural. The shades seem darker than they actually are on the skin. The colour is not flat, it looks multi-toned and extremely natural, like a "no makeup" look. You can layer a bit for extra coverage if you need more in certain areas.
In summer, it may not be the best choice, but for the colder months it will hydrate and create a "dewy" look.
A little bit goes a long way so the bottle lasts for ages and ages. Overall, the coverage is very good and if you tend to have drier skin, this will probably be a great all-in-one skin treatment.
