BB Cream

I was so estatic when this product came on the market and so keen to try it. Lucky for me Garnier gave plenty of opportunities to try out this product for free and I was so thrilled to win a full sized cream (one medium and one light) from a blog I regularly read.

I have acne prone skin so I was very keen to see what was so good about this new Blemish Balm that is taking the beauty world by storm. After trying it for about a week I was not so impressed.

I found the smell was overpowering and a bit off-putting. Also the formula itself is thick and greasy.- For acne skin this is a big no-no as we do not want to encourage breakouts.

The coverage was fairly average and a bit too heavy for everday use. I was very disappointed in this new product that everyone apparently loved.

I found what helped a little was applying a very lightweight foundation powder over the BB cream to help set it and take off some oiliness. I may not re-purchase this one but I would be very inteerested in seeing how other BB cream brands compare to this one from Garnier.
