Fantastic Go-To Product!
I have been trialling both the Light & Medium shades and have loved them both. The light shade is more suited to my skins natural colour so this would have to be my favourite. I found mixing the medium with a bit of thick sunscreen can help lighten the shade with does make it more greasy and you really need to use a good powder over the top to stop the shine. But in the warmer months this shade would work well on its own for me as it's not that much darker.
This product gives great coverage and smooths out the surface of your skin giving you a flawless finish without looking fake. The scent is really beautiful actually, it is like a light fragrant perfume which is quite slight but very pretty and non irritating.
I adore the lovely golden brown tube and find it super easy to use and apply. It is very affordable and I would purchase this in the future as it is my go to BB Cream for almost everyday.
It minimises my pores and doesn't make me break out even though it contains SPF and moisturiser which can feel a little slick at the end of the day. But a little powder touch up only once throughout the day is all you need and it does a great job at lasting the whole day.
A fantastic product that is great value & agrees with my skin. It is almost like the Light shade was specially formulated to exactly match my skin's colour. Amazing!

Simple & effective
So easy and simple to use. The tint of the cream easily absorbs into your skin and easily matches my skin-tone which I've found that other BB creams are either too dark or too light but this one is pretty much perfect.

One of the greatest
I have to confess, this was the first bb cream I had ever purchased, so I was really excited to see what the buzz was all about, and I was not disappointed. The cream blended really well into my skin and even though I have combination skin, this worked to cover my pores efficiently. The light shade suited my skin amazingly. Even though I don't use this anymore (the oil-free one works better for my skin-type), I recommend this to everyone to use.

Amazing all in one
This is the first time I have tried a BB cream and I was quite surprised at how such a simple product could make such a huge difference. As a busy mum of two I don't have time for a complicated skin care routine. This BB cream is quite light on skin and made me look like I had spent some time getting ready when I'd only spent a few minutes. The only downside for me is that I tried the medium shade and found it a touch too dark for my skin colour.

My alternative to foundation
I'm not a big fan of foundation especially in summer as I sweat a lot on my face in certain spots and after sometime my face becomes patchy. I found garnier bb cream about an year ago and its my summer alternative to foundation. It's light and smooth. I don't need to put on layers on my face anymore. It's quite handy, fits in my handbag ready to be reapplied when needed. Even though it doesn't make my face look eventoned like a foundation but still something is better than nothing. Also it tends to leave a slight shine which I don't like so I just dab on some translucent powder.
I brush translucent powder on my face after applying it to get rid of the shine.
Sweaty summer when foundation becomes runny.

Nice and Simple
Easy to use product, it is mosturising and leaves you with clear looking skin. The product is smooth and easy to apply, I used it in stead of foundation for a while and it worked well.

Best BB I've ever used!
Previous BB creams I've used, (I won't name & shame) have not only made me break out but also caused my skin to feel rough. I received some free samples about 6 months ago of the Garnier BB cream and I've never looked back! I've purchased a 50ml tube since using all my samples, and it has lasted! The tube is a perfect fit in my make up bag AND my daily skin care routine. I will never ever ever use another BB cream!

I was quite disappointed with the colour output for this cream the shades that it came in are not labelled appropriately for the colour that comes out of the tube.
For my fairly light skin after application of the light shade I was left with fake tan look which is not attractive if I am not continuing with the fake tan down my neck and over my chest area.
Other than that I found that the feel of the product to be great. A pea sized amount of product covers my entire face and it blended well giving a smooth and even appearance.
The bottle is also nicely designed so that it sits upon its lid therefore there is always product ready to be squeezed out of the tube.
I would give it more stars if I could but for the fact that the colour types/range is really misleading and it does not have a colour option for fair skin.
a pea sized amount is enough to cover your entire face

Re-evaluated, now it's a must have
I have a confession to make, Garnier BB cream, I didn’t treat you fairly. Two years ago I reviewed this product as average and underwhelming, but after receiving the full sized product in my 2012 Glosscars box, I have been using it almost every day non stop, repurchasing it multiple times. I use it as a base underneath my foundation, the light shade seems to blend well with the pale shade of my liquid foundation. It helps to smooth out my skin and creates a more even toned complexion. I wouldn’t say that it’s a “blemish banisher” and it doesn’t really do anything to conceal any kind of blemishes. It goes on a little greasy, depending on how much you apply, I tried not lather it on too thick under my foundation, but I usually give it a couple minutes to settle before I put anything on top of it and that seems to help. It has a creamy consistency and goes on smoothly, it can go on a little streaky if you put it on too thick. It feels nicely moisturising, but I do have to sometimes be a little careful as the tint can stick and accentuate dry patches on my face, ewwww. It’s a great product to even out your complexion if you just don’t feel like wearing any makeup, whilst moisturising and adding a little sun protection (mind you, you need to use about a teaspoon of product to get that level of sun protection, and that much of this product would leave you looking like a grease puddle). I’ve tried some of the other BB creams that are on the market now and they just don’t really compare, I keep going back to this one. I can get it for about $8 a tube at my local chemist, and it lasts for ages. Even when I think the tube is completely empty, I always seem to be able to squeeze just a little more out. It is kind of fragrant, so if you’re sensitive to smells, I probably wouldn’t recommend it, but it’s not bad. It’s nice and moisturising without clogging up my skin, and overall I like how it evens out my skin before applying my foundation. I will continue to buy it as a base for my makeup.
Don't apply too much or it will look greasy, don't expect great coverage, but it is nicer than some other tinted moisturisers.
Anyone looking for light coverage without the caked on look of foundation.

Best in Beauty 2014 – Even, smooth, and fresh complexion
The Garnier miracle skin perfector BB cream comes in a golden beige tube with a flip top cap. The squeeze tube is great because it gives me control on the amount of product that is dispersed, and the secure cap makes sure there is no spillage. This means I can keep the bb cream in my bag and have peace of mind that it won’t leak or spill. The first thing that I noticed about this BB cream was that it had that signature Garnier scent. It is sweet and fruity without being overpowering at all.
The formula of the BB cream is quite a heavy liquid. It has a slight mousse texture to it in the way that it feels quite fluffy. With there only being two shades to choose from, light and medium, I was quite worried that either shade would not be suitable for my skin. I picked up the BB cream in the shade light as I am quite fair. When I applied it directly from the tube, the product looked a little too dark for my skin. This was not an issue though as the BB cream blends seamlessly into my skin without making my face look like a different shade from my neck and chest area. The BB cream does not have an overly strong warm tone or cool tone to it, it lies somewhere in the middle and it is almost a tan colour. This is great as it ensures that the cream accommodates so many different shades and tones of skin.
In terms of coverage, I love the Garnier BB cream because it provides more coverage than any tinted moisturiser that I own. While it does not have the coverage of a foundation, it is much more lightweight on the skin than a foundation has ever left my skin feeling. The coverage of the BB cream is sufficient to even out my skin tone, diminish any redness, and it covers any minor blemishes that I am experiencing on the day. I do not need to apply as much concealer as I do with a tinted moisturiser. I usually set the BB cream with a loose powder because it can look a bit shiny on my t-zone throughout the day as I have oily combination skin.
The Garnier BB cream manages to add a small amount of moisturise to my skin. It leaves my skin looking smoother, more even, and brighter which I put down to the fact that it includes Vitamin C and mineral pigments. I am comfortable wearing this every day because it also offers UV SPF 15 protection. This BB cream does not rub or wear off easily and transfer is very minimal.

Best In Beauty 2014
I have heard so many great things about BB creams so could not wait to try the first one released in Australia! I used the colour "medium" and this suited my skin tone perfectly. The cream comes in a simple beige tube containing 50mls of product and is a great size for traveling. I only needed to squirt out approximately a 1cm line of product to give all over coverage to my face. The cream smells fresh and floral with no obvious sunscreen scent. The BB cream is easy to apply, absorbs quickly with no greasy residue and feels lightweight on my skin. My skin had a healthy glow after applying, whilst not looking like I had makeup on. While it did not eliminate my pigmentation, skin redness etc, it diminished their appearance. This has become a bargain summer staple for me. I have purchased many tubes and will definitely continue to repurchase in the future. Very highly recommended!
