Beauty Review: Garnier BB Cream Miracle Skin Perfector
Garnier has picked up on a trend from Asia creating a BB cream, short for ‘blemish balm’ which combines makeup and skin care all in one product. This Miracle Skin Perfector is said to even, cover, hydrate, illuminate and protect with just one cream. These cream are already a huge craze in Asia, but will Garnier BB Cream make us a convert singing their praises in North America.
THE HYPE: The whole idea of an all in one makeup product that can do everything your skin needs sounds pretty amazing.
THE TEST: Wear the BB Cream on a daily basis to see what it does for my skin.
THE VERDICT: The jury is split in sentencing Garnier’s skin care cream. As an illuminator, moisturizer and protector we are sold! This new cream feels great one your face. It has helped to hydrate our face through the tough winter chill and kept our faces look radiant. As soon as you put it on you can see how it helps to illuminate your natural glow. Since we started wearing it, our face has just felt overall better. That said, it is lacking in some of it’s claims. We were most excited about the fact that not only will it do those things, but it is also a makeup products which will even out your skin tone. So far, we haven’t seen the brilliant evening makeup results yet. It is supposed to reduce redness, but there doesn’t seem to be any effect on redness at all. As for being a concealer/foundation it is so light that it is more like a tinted moisturizer than true coverage. If that is all you want then it’s fine, but it’s not really giving you true coverage. Most other women will still have to wear a foundation and concealer over top. So depending on what you need Garnier’s BB Cream may be what you are looking for, but it’s not what we would call a miracle product.
