Product Review: Garnier BB Cream – Light on Coverage & Heavy in Weight
I was recently sent the Garnier BB Cream in Medium/Deep to review. I have always wanted to try using a tinted moisturizer and this one claimed to be a great one-step product but I was not impressed.
**Warning: Horrible No Makeup Pictures Ahead!**
I found the Garnier BB Cream in the Medium/Deep to be a poor fit for my skin and my makeup routine. The cream smelled nice but that’s where the pros ended for me. I was very excited at the possibility of combining my moisturizer, concealer and foundation application into one easy step and was disappointed when the coverage from the Garnier BB Cream was subpar. As you can see in the pictures above it only covered portions of my face.
In addition to not being a good color match, it did not give me adequate coverage. It left my skin splotchy as though I had nothing on and didn’t help even out my skin tone. At the same time it also left my face slightly oily. The cream was very heavy on my face and I found that irritating because it felt as thought I had a lot of makeup on…and yet my face felt exposed. I considered putting on another layer but it was already so thick I just wanted to take it all off.
All in all, it will certainly not replace my usual makeup process – all those steps provide results and I’m happy to do them for the coverage.
