Is Garnier BB Cream worth the hype?


I apologise.... I haven't blogged in what seems like forever but I thought I'd share with you my opinions on Garnier BB Cream which I have recently started loving.

The consistency of this product surprised me. As a primer/moisturizer combination, I expected this to be thin/ watery in texture. The consistency of this product is quite thick, similar to that, if not thicker, than a foundation. A little of this product goes a long way and blends effortlessly, easier than foundation.

This BB cream is available in Light and Medium, which to me is quite limited for a product. I am very fair skinned and did find that when swatching this it was quite dark in comparison to my skin. Rest assured, if I only use a little of this product, I can easily blend it to better suit my skin colour.

The finish of this product is very dewy and glowy. As someone who suffers from very dry skin, I don't often complain if something is very moisturizing or oily, but I did find that I needed to set the product with a powder as it didn't seem natural without one.

As for lasting power, this product, if used as a foundation/tinted moisturizer replacement, will not last as long but will last 5-7 hours if set with a powder.

I feel that this product reaches its claims. It's moisturizing, I leaves your skin looking and feeling health with a boosted glow.

This BB Cream RRP is £9.99 and is available in Boots and Superdrug Skincare aisles.

Hope this was helpful :D
