What can I say about this product other than I’m sold! It took me a long time to come round to the idea of BB creams. I just didn’t get what the fuss was all about. Particularly as I am someone that suffers from lots of spots and blemishes, I was not going to be swayed from the safety net that foundation was for me. That was until I tried one of those sample sachets found inside glossy magazines.
Now don’t get me wrong I haven’t given up foundation completely but when I’m in a hurry I can rely in this baby to help me out.
I use the shade light for oily to combination skin. The colour match is perfect for my fair complexion and the oil free formula definitely benefits my skin type, (Prone to spots around chin and gets a bit shiny during the summer).
Garnier claim that this is an all-in-one solution that immediately perfects
combination to oily skin. The lightweight formula promises to mattify, reduce the appearance of imperfections, hydrate, even skin tone, give a healthy glow whilst providing SPF20 perfection.*
I would say that for me it does all these things. I feel confident enough to do the school run wearing this and nothing else. I at least look awake and perky, if not completely put together.
The consistency is quite thin so you do have to be careful not to make a mess as it does tend to get everywhere. On the plus side though little bit also goes a long way. You only need a small amount of product, if you use too much it can lose it’s mattifying effect. I’d just like to add also that if I have time I will set my chin area with a little powder just to increase it’s staying power.
The usual price of this is £9.99 for 40ml of product available from the usual places such as Boots and Superdrug. I consider this good value for money as a tube lasts me at least 4 months. It’s also currently on offer in Boots for £6.66. www.boots.com/en/Garnier-BB-Skin-Perfector-Oil-Free-Light_1262025/ .If I weren’t on a spending ban I’d be grabbing me a back up. I’m being very good though and resisting for now. This will be a repurchase in the future though.
What about you? Have you tried this BB cream? Or are you someone like me that was a bit late to the BB cream party?
