Fantastic Go-To Product!
I have been trialling both the Light & Medium shades and have loved them both. The light shade is more suited to my skins natural colour so this would have to be my favourite. I found mixing the medium with a bit of thick sunscreen can help lighten the shade with does make it more greasy and you really need to use a good powder over the top to stop the shine. But in the warmer months this shade would work well on its own for me as it's not that much darker.
This product gives great coverage and smooths out the surface of your skin giving you a flawless finish without looking fake. The scent is really beautiful actually, it is like a light fragrant perfume which is quite slight but very pretty and non irritating.
I adore the lovely golden brown tube and find it super easy to use and apply. It is very affordable and I would purchase this in the future as it is my go to BB Cream for almost everyday.
It minimises my pores and doesn't make me break out even though it contains SPF and moisturiser which can feel a little slick at the end of the day. But a little powder touch up only once throughout the day is all you need and it does a great job at lasting the whole day.
A fantastic product that is great value & agrees with my skin. It is almost like the Light shade was specially formulated to exactly match my skin's colour. Amazing!

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!

Works for some
I purchased this product in the shade of 'Medium' and it works wonders on my skin! It's quick and easy to apply and you really don't need much. My sister and myself have been using it for about a year now and on days where we just want to give our faces a break from all the make up, we wear only this with a bit of lip gloss and some eye shadow. But although it work's for us, we noticed that it was horrible on our mother! Our mother has fair and oily skin and even with the lightest shade, it still looked too dark for her. Not only that but it made her look as if she was sweating, even on the coldest days. I wouldn't apply too much either if you fair, because it also looks very blotchy.
I really wouldn't recommend it for people with pale and oily skin, It'll just make you look like a hot mess.

Not suitable for oily skin
This product basically does what it says it does, no more. My skin is on the drier side, so this works well with my skin and keeps it hydrated. This can replace my moisturiser, but because I prefer a little more protection I tend to use a product with SPF 30+ underneath. Would it work for those with oily skin? Apparently not. All the reviews from those with oily skin tend to say it slides off. If you are one of those girls, check out the oil free version, the reviews for that are a little more in your favour. This offers a very light coverage that is not buildable, and I'm fine with that because I don't think that's it's purpose. On days when I want more coverage, I reach for my foundation. But for those lazy days when I want to pop into the store to buy a litre of milk, I usually put this on with a light dusting of powder just to finish it off and even out the skin tone ever so slightly. I have this in the lightest shade, which makes me look a little pale, but I think the next shade down would be too dark, so I would have to mix them together to achieve the perfect colour. For that reason I wouldn't repurchase it, but as far everything else goes, I personally think it does the job.

Wouldn't buy again
I was incredibly hopeful for this product as I had heard great things about it although it definitely wasn't the product for me. I bought the lightest shade of the bb cream, but it was still way too dark and had an orange tinge on my skin.
I have quite pale skin and was hoping this would be beneficial for everyday light coverage but the product was terrible to blend and I tried to apply it with fingers, sponge and brushes but nothing seemed to work. The coverage is very light but impossible to build upon because it becomes blotchy on the skin. It also makes my skin look oily when usually I have normal skin, even dusting setting powder over the product didn't work, I will not be buying this product in the future.

I got this bb cream in light (I actually have olive skin but it was the closest in the store's light) and it's awful. No oily skin, but it's bright orange. I literally glow, and not in a good way. Disappointing.

Not for me.
I was really excited to try this product after the good things I have heard about it. I liked how the packaging was, and that you could just squeeze the amount you wanted. When I was first put it on my skin, it was fine. I did provide a little coverage and helped even out my skin tone. But throughout the day, it started to look cakey on my skin, and smelled unpleasant. When I washed it off, my skin look very irritated and red. Maybe this product will be suited to skin that is not sensitive.

Wont leave the home without!
Since I brought this foundation I have stuck with it for about 1 and a half years now. I suffer from frequent breakouts ( especially being in my teen years now) and i found this product to be the most effective foundation in helping my skin appear clearer making me more confident in my skin. Also its very light , never feels oily or creates shine and doesn't contribute to more break outs. Cant thank this product enough!
