the beauty post | garnier bb cream

garnier bb cream in light - £.9.99 (currently on offer for £6.66) - superdrug


this is my go-to face product in my daily make up routine.
i always wear bb creams during the day rather than foundation as i am lucky enough to be able to wear lighter coverage during the day. i first used this bb cream years ago when it first came out before going on to try other bb creams on the market, but i have always liked this one the most.

the actual product is much more a moisturizer than a foundation, and is of a very thick substance. although it is very thick, once on the skin it sinks in quickly and offers light coverage. it obviously isn't very good for blemishes and spots, so you need to use a concealer as well  but i find this makes my skin look really glowing and even in tone.

it only comes in two shades, which is a bit annoying as i can't see it suiting a lot of people as it can sometimes come out as orange on me if i use too much by accident. they really should expand the range a little, but the fact that they have been out for quite a while means that chances of that is pretty unlikely.

i've also seen recently that they've brought out a bb cream for oily skin which i think i will definitely try once i have finished this tube (which takes ages as you get 50ml!) as i have combination skin and would like to see how an oil free one works.
