Reviews for Miracle Skin Perfector BB Cream Original by Garnier
Rating: Aug 24, 2014 11:30pm
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.

A good backup Plan
I have quite light skin and their lightest shade was simply too dark. It did even out my skint one but for anyone looking for a lighter shade I would recommend MAYBELLINES BB cream

Great BB Cream
I received this BB Cream in a Bellabox and had been meaning to try it for ages so was pretty happy. I have the Medium and find that the colouring is a true medium. It has a really lovely scent, almost like perfume. Personally the cream isn't thick enough to cover blemishes however is close enough to my foundation (NP Set 2 Medium) that a few dots of foundation and a full face of BB gave the same result as a full face of foundation.

I love this!
I love garnier products and this one is amazing! i use the one for normal skin and it's great as a last minute foundation! reduces the redness in my cheeks and covers most of my freckles. Great for a no makeup-makeup look. Will definitely buy again!

I don't often use foundation in this form, only mineral powder but I got a sample of this and I am in love. It literally takes any uneven skin tones and pigments right out of your skin, leaving it smooth and flawless! It smells amazing, not heavy with sunscreen like some others. It also doesn't seem to make my skin greasy throughout the day which is amazing. I tried the medium tone which blended perfectly with my skin. Amazing!
