Hey everyone it’s time for my first product review and I’m soooo excited for this one as it’s a product I picked up on the off chance and have fallen in love with!
As you can probably guess from the post title this review is of the Garnier BB Cream Miracle Skin Perfector in the colour light. Now I’d never used a BB cream before this but had been thinking about trying one for a while so when I saw this in Wilkinson’s on offer (I picked it up for less than £5 I think) I couldn’t resist.
For anyone that doesn’t know what a BB cream does it’s marketed as an all-in-one product to replace serum, moisturizer, primer, foundation and SPF so it sounds like a miracle cream, and actually it isn’t too far off!
I’ve taken to using this BB cream as a primer underneath my foundation or on lazy days which don’t require make up as a tinted moisturiser to provide just a touch of cover and shimmer for a healthy natural glow. Anyways, for the day to day I apply a small pea shaped dose of cream to my foundation brush and blend in until there are no lines or streaks. The cream applies really easily and the colour is great; It really evens out any red patches or dry spots and I’d imagine it would suit a whole range of different skin tones. I use this as an everyday base because it’s got a lovely light shimmer without being too over the top and also doesn’t provide too heavy a coverage. This has replaced me moisturising and priming making my morning routine just a little bit quicker and easier which is definitely a win! It also smells great and feels really natural and good to the skin so I think it would suit most skin, although I’d probably be careful if you have oily skin!
Anyways to sum up, I would definitely recommend this product and would give it a solid 4/5. The only way I think this could be improved is if the finish was just a bit more matte and a little less shiny, but other than that it’s pretty much perfect. I’ll try some more as a comparison and post about those here for you too, but for now I’m very happy with this one and definitely think if you’re thinking about using a BB cream then give this one a go as it’s a pretty safe bet 🙂
