Reviews for Miracle Skin Perfector BB Cream by Garnier
Rating: Dec 2, 2013 4:58pm
I have heard a lot of ranting and raving about this product, for its affordability and in general 'how good it is'. I picked this up on special. I don't have anything overly bad to say about it, though it did not blow me away. It's very basic, with very basic colour selections. Once again, only hues which companies believe to be "average" are included here. I think there might be a total of 2? Which completely excludes those darker than "medium" and lighter than "light". This is not great for oily skin. My skin is dry, and it made it look oily. I do not recommend this for summer. Perhaps in Winter, if your skin is very dry. It will melt right off your face. The texture is not pleasant either.

Not for me
This bb has okay coverage but the consistency is NOT okay. It literally clung onto my dry patches and accentuated the pores on my nose. (sobs) It made me break out like crazy and tiny bumps appeared on my cheekbones. Everyone seems to love this product and I don't know why. I guess my skin is ultrasensitive. Just try it...I reckon this product drastically varies on individuals.

After hearing a lot of hype about the new BB Creams coming out, I decided that I wanted to give it a go. The thing that drew me to it was the fact it had colour in it, as I barely ever use foundation because I guess I'm too lazy to ever put it on if it isn't a special occasion.
So I made my purchase of the 02-Light/Clair cream and was excited to give it a go.
Note: I have fairly fair skin with some freckles, and sometimes my face gets a bit greasy around the edges of my nose and my T-zone.
I did my usual cleanse and tone and then applied the cream to my face. After applying, my skin felt really greasy and disgusting, looked really shiny and the colour was really obvious around my hair line, despite applying only a small amount!
I always try to use moisturizers that have a 'matte' effect as I mentioned before my skin gets a bit greasy around my nose and T-zone. So I was totally disappointed at how this "miracle skin perfector" made my skin look and feel.
Ever since then, this BB Cream has been thrown far in the back of my product stash just gathering dust, I even forgot I had it until now. I have not looked at other BB Creams since in fear of the same results and loss of money :(

Nice even light coverage for when youré in a rush!
I like this product, its light weight and good for when you want light coverage, possibly on one of those days where your skin is being nice to you!
Having oily skin I usually avoid dewy finishes, and although this is a dewy finish BB cream I do feel like its bearably dewy. I do have to apply powder on top through for oil control.
Overall its a decent BB cream, not the best ive tried (I prefer my Maybelline dream pure) but definitely not one to pass up if you like a light coverage dewy finish.

I find it has the most coverage compared with other BB creams. I usually use a pore minimising cream with a beauty blender first then use the beauty blender to apply the bb cream, this give me a foundation like finish.

Not what I expected
I didn't like this product. I received a sample sachet and I was quite disappointed.
The formula was too thick, even thicker than foundation consistency, there was a shimmer/shine that made my skin look like I packed on shimmery bronzer and I looked like an oompa loompa. There isn't a good range of versatile shades, the light was too light for my skin and the darker/medium was too dark.
It accentuated my large pores and any other imperfections on my face. When I had dry skin around my nose or after cleansing, it magnified that problem and looked very cakey.
I don't recommend this for people with major skin problems, dry skin, large pores or very oily skin. It seems to be for people with minor flaws or blemishes.

Definitely makes a dramatic improvement very quickly while looking looking really natural.

good for my dry skin
Garnier BB cream comes in 40 ml tube packing with box. The light shade was perfect for me but it will be little bit dark for Caucasian girls. It has creamy velvety texture. I needed to squeeze more than pea size amount to cover entire face. It is highly fragranced, even I could smell its fragrance after its application. I gave me light coverage with illuminating effect. My skin felt hydrated, soft and fresh. I did not highlight dry areas of my skin and did not settle into my pore and fine lines.
I used face powder over it to complete my look. Garnier BB cream and pressed power give me flawless natural look(as I always like natural look). It had decent staying power, on my face it last for 4-6 hours with compact powder. It did not cause break out and any other reaction. I was very satisfied with this product

Good go-to product for when you're in a rush
So, as one of the first BB creams to come out in Aus, I instantly bought a tube. It purports itself as a 24 hour moisturiser, that it will even out tone, correct blemishes, boost a healthy glow, and has a low SPF. Also, it's economically priced.
For me, it offers basic moisture (I have to put something on underneath to ensure I'm appropriately moisturised; I work in air conditioning), and it definitely evens out my overall skin tone (although seasonally the colour can be a bit too much when I'm in a winter fade). That being said, I'm not so sold on the correct blemishes part; I definitely have to add in concealer should I have a spot.
