Best in Beauty 2014 - Simply the BEST!
This is hands down the best BB Cream I have come across. I use it on everyday basis and its my third tube now. It gives a sufficient coverage which is totally buildable. It evens out my skin tone, covers the marks and smoothens out my complexion. It instantly beautifies my skin by giving it a healthy illuminating effect. No dryness, no oiliness. The texture is very light and blends easily and perfectly. Skin feels hydrated and moisturised. The added bonus is the SPF 15 factor for sun protection. True to its claim!

Love as a base for mineral powder
I use this product as part of my daily morning ritual. I'll moisturise my face, quickly followed by the BB cream. I know it is not recommended but basically I use this as my liquid foundation and then apply Nude by Nature mineral powder over the top. The reasons I do this are as follows;
- The BB cream is light in weight and makes it feel as though it is only a simple moisturiser
- provides quite a good coverage for a tinted moisturiser but does not look 'cakey'
- definitely a better alternative to full cover foundation in regards to your skin
- only need a small amount = cost effective

Don't believe it's reputation!
I know that this is a product that gets a bad rep for being ridiculously bad for your skin but I have never, in two years of using this product, had a problem. It slides on smooth and it lasts for the majority of the day.

I found this perfect for my skin, and it made my skin feel absolutely soft and fab. It applied quick and easy while feeling light and sweet smelling.

Not great for combo skin, looked orange and sheered out.
I chose to buy this in "medium", which was my first mistake!
There was no option to try this before I bought it, and I figured (after reading reviews) that the colours ran light, so I picked up the medium instead of light.
It looked presentable after application (although I struggled to blend the thick formula into my face) but after a couple of hours, I looked like a slippery orange mess!
I gave it another shot, and this time applied a primer and a setting powder to control the oil, but by the end of the day, I still looked fairly orange, and my nose and cheeks had almost no product left at all, and I could see every blemish on my face. It seemed to sheer out a lot on my skin.
It seems to be the only product from Garnier that doesn't agree with my skin type!
I did love the packaging (simple and easy to use!)
Not for me, but I'm glad so many others have found their go-to BB cream!

Better products on the market...
I only just realised there's one for sensitive skin, so I probably should have tried that, I remember a little burning with this one. Also found my skin getting a little oily my midday (and I have dry skin!)
For me the colour worked (I have an indian background, but on the lighter side) which was a bonus, as my colouring lies between medium and dark usually.
Wouldn't buy it again, found the Maybeline BB to suit my skin type better.

One of the better ones.
I've used a few BB creams (Olay, Nivea and Garnier) and this one, while not my holy Grail BB cream, is the best of the 3. It's a good colour for my very fair skin, it blends nicely and it provides moisture without feeling oily. It gives my skin a lovely healthy glow. I'd still like to try La Mav's BB cream, but until then, I'm happy to keep using this one.

Not for combination or oily skin
If you have combination or oily skin, you are better off getting a different bb cream. I use this once when it was spring but it makes my face look very oily and shiny which it didn't like. However, when I use it during winter, it was decent but you would always have to use a moisturiser before applying. Otherwise, it wouldn't look great since the moisturiser component in the bb cream is not enough. I got the light shade one but it was still too dark for me but I didn't mind it because when I use it during winter it doesn't make my face look like a ghost :)

Not for me
I found it didn't blend in, the colour was orange and the product was oily (I don't have oily skin). I have found much better BB creams. It wasn't for me.

Overall, a great product
I have been using this for the last month now and I love it. It has a pretty strong smell I guess you could say, but I don't mind because it doesn't smell bad. I love that it feels so lightweight in my skin and it blends in so well with my stippling brush. I don't feel like I need to use much product which is great. The packaging is simple, cute and easy to get out of. I purchased this in the light shade and it's perfect for my skin even though I am not pale at all, but not dark. Also the coverage is perfect for my teenage skin. It evens out my skin time which is great and hides blemishes with the help of concealer. Anything more would be too heavy for me. The only thing I would say is it is on the oily side, fortunately for me it's not very oil because I don't have oily skin to start with, I have dry skin. But I still find that my forehead especially can be quite shiny when applying
, but I use a pressed powder over my makeup anyway so I don't mind. Overall I love this, and I will be repurchasing.
