REVIEW: New Garnier BB Cream for Oily Skin

Thursday, September 06, 2012

Now I know a lot of people were disappointed with the original Garnier BB Cream and I have to say because of the negative reviews I never got around to trying it so I really can't compare this with the original. I do however know that the formula has completely changed and after swatching both in the store, there is a huge difference and as far as the swatches go I prefer the new one:)

I'm sure a lot of you know by now that I'm a great fan of BB creams but what I really loved about this one was that it gave the consistency and feel of a BB cream yet left a really nice foundation finish. This BB cream has quite a runny consistency but I find this makes it glide on easier, it then soaks into the skin and leaves a matte, yet natural finish. It leaves a medium coverage but a light medium coverage (if that makes sense!) the coverage is medium but it has a light feel on the face. I love that this gives such a soft, smooth finish and so far it is my favourite BB cream (compared to the Maybelline DreamFresh and 17 BB cream). Best of all its oil-free and has SPF 20!! I think I'll defeinitely carry on using this into the winter because its quite a bit of coverage yet while still be natural.

If you hated the previous one, definitely give this one a go because it really is a lovely BB cream!
