Review on Garnier BB Cream for Combination to Oily Skin.
Formula/Texture: SO creamy! Blends like a dream and feels super light weight on the skin. Very moisturizing. The formula is a bit watery so watch out for that when squeezing out the product. The liquidy, runny formula helps the BB Cream feel so light weight on the skin. Whenever I wear this I forget I’m wearing face makeup! It makes my skin look really flawless and smooth. Leaves a satin, slightly dewy finish. Add some powder on top if you prefer more of a matte look.
Coverage: Surprisingly awesome! Most BB Creams offer a light coverage but this gives a solid medium to buildable coverage. I can cover almost all of my scars and when I add on more product to certain areas to build the coverage it still looks natural and doesnt cake up.
Longevity: Not the longest wearing foundation ever, however it its very long lasting compared to other BB Creams I have tried. This BB Cream is supposed to be an all in one product such as moisturizer, foundation and concealer in one so skip moisturizer to help it last longer. I wore moisturizer the first time with it and I got a little oily after 3 hours, when I didnt use moisturizer I went a good 5 - 6 hours without any shine. When I use a primer or setting spray it lasts me most of the day only having to blot once.
Overall Thoughts: Awesome BB Cream! I recommend it for all skin types since it is moisturizing. Us oily skin gals will still need to use powder, primer or a setting spray to help it last longer though. It is a little more expensive than other BB Creams but you get 2 fl oz unlike most foundations/BB Creams being only 1 fl oz so you get double the product. Only comes in 3 shades which is unfortunate, I’m an NC 35 in MAC and I use the Medium/Tan shade and it’s a tad too dark but blends well! Makes your skin look super flawless and smooth. Love it :)
