The Garnier BB Cream was 1st introduced in India and the advertisement really attracted me but till the time it came to Pakistan the hype of BB Creams had lowered and the reviews ive read were fairly OK and not very impressive. So my mom really wanted to try it out as it has SPF 24 and it claims to be a tinted-moisturizer, that why we got an 18g tube to test the product as the bigger bottle was quite expensive.
On the box it says that it will give u fairer, glowing, smooth, even toned, moisturized skin…. Well lets find out if it is really worth all ?
The product is in a plastic squeeze tube with a twist on white cap. The tube comes in a box with all the benefits of the products printed all over the box.
Contains= SPF 24 + Vitamin C + Almond Extracts + Minerals for Brightening.
The product itself is a thin creamy texture which blends in quite smoothly into the skin and keeps it moist and hydrated thanks to all those good ingredients.
My experience and opinion of the product:
It claims to be a light tinted cream but for me il say it’s a very very light tinted cream, as ive got a bit patchy skin around my cheek area also ive got freckles. So this cream does not give me that flaw-less fairer even-toned skin that it claims of which was annoying because even after 2 coats of the product I could still see my freckles n patches. And apply too much extra product makes it greasy/oily and it’s a waste of product in my case.It’s like applying moisturizer, zero color just hydrating.
My moms experience and opinion of the product:
She has a much even Skin tone then mine, no patches so the product fairly works as a tinted moisturizer on her skin. No doubt the product is smooth and leaves the skin hydrate and fresh looking and glowy. That’s the reason she likes it as she dosnt like heavy based foundation and the SPF 24 in it is a plus point. The only thing she dosnt like is that it’s expensive for a moisturizer.
I use Garnier’s Skin Renew (Anti Dark- Circle Roller) for my under eye concealed and simply love it !! But this particular product didn’t do wonders on my skin. Maybe I will for you, its always good to try because we all have different skin types like what dosnt suited me suited for my mom 🙂 Wont recommend for oily skin as mentioned above. A bit price for lesser product in tube.
Let me know your thoughts on it… if it’s YAY or NAY for you 🙂 share by commenting below.
Until next time beauties,
