Hello , hello and hello !!
Christmas has passed now just the new year to come by and we can finally say pheww. Today i decided i would write to you all about Garnier's BB creams and if you would like the chance to win 5 , yes thats right 5 BB creams then keep reading.
If you know me well or read my blog a lot you will know , i try to stay away from liquid foundations and tend to wear mineral powders due to my skins condition (oily and acne prone). I was so excited to try this out because it was my first time trying a BB cream and i didnt know what to expect - everyone was always raving about them. I was kindly sent this to try out and i loved it...
Packaging: I found it be really simple and customer friendly but i do think the outer box is a little too much , i think it confuses you a lot . The actual packaging for the product itself is very good , its simple , waterproof and you can make out how much product is in your tube which is a positive thing for me. The process of getting your product out is also a really easy and convenient way.
Price: At around 10 euros (Hondos Center) i thought it was fantastic. The truth is i expected it to cost a LOT more but im so glad Garnier managed to keep their prices low and in fact its even cheaper than what Feel Unique is offering it for (by a euro or two but still). Loved the price and totally worth it!
Product: The product comes out like a thick foundation and when applied to your face it is very light looking and offers more coverage than what you would think it would. For my everyday makeup routine i just add a bit of concealer with this and im happy with the results. The one problem this does have is that its so oily !! You MUST apply a translucent powder with this or its just not going to work. Im thinking in Summer when skin is more oily whether its going to be an even bigger problem then... We will have to wait and see i guess!
Consuming the product: It doesnt finish quickly neither slowly , i would say normal. The only thing i noticed with this is that its not full right the way to the top which i do think is like a mini trick to make you think youre getting more than what is actually in the packaging. It doesnt bother me though , i will still buy another one.
02 light ( i use) 03 medium
Changes in my Skin: I didnt really notice any huge changes but it certainly didnt break me out in any sort of way and neither did i find it irritating. I think this is perfect for someone who has dry skin but i also thinks its great for someone with oily skin and acne because its a light and healthy way to keep things covered.
Overall i would definitely buy this again and it is something that i believe once you try it , it will instantly become a staple in your makeup routine. I think the price is great along with it and it is easy to find. The translucent powder i use with my BB cream is by Bare Minerals Mineral Veil , its natural so no clogging pores!! Once i apply this powder on , i find it stays the way it originally was ( its not something i have to keep topping up).
