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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

Perfect for everyday use.
I love this product it makes my skin feel and look great for light use when a full face isn't required.
I also like that it is has the SPF 15 .

This has to be the best tinted moisturizer I have ever used. The texture is quite thin - it's just a bit thicker than water. This liquid texture makes it extremely spreadable, and allows you to cover your face with a small amount of product. It is also very very pigmented, so you only really need one layer of it. It also looks very natural on - my boyfriend didn't realize I was wearing any base makeup until I told him! This BB cream leaves you with a dewy finish, so it's perfect for summer when you want to look fresh and glowy. However, it can be set with powder without caking up or highlighting dry spots. This matches the quality of mid to high end foundations in my opinion - it truly is excellent!

Best BB cream so far
This is the best bb cream I have come across so far. I have it in light which is quite dark for the lightest shade so I wouldn't recommend it for really pale people. It glides onto the face easily and provides a light coverage which is buildable. Its not orange like a lot of other bb creams and gives me naturally glowing, perfected skin. I also really like the scent of it as it is just a suttle pleasant scent unlike many chemically scented products.
Great for those days where you can't be bothered to put on a full face of makeup but still want to look good
