Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector BB Cream

BB Creams are hot right now. They've been popular in Asia for ages, and just recently made their way onto the European market. The "BB" in BB cream stands for "blemish balm". It's a cream that is a light-coverage foundation, while at the same time being a nourishing moisturiser for the skin, preventing rather than causing blemishes. In addition to that, it also contains a SPF15 sunscreen, and works as a make-up primer for the rest of your make-up. So, it truly is a cool all-in-one product.

This is what the cream looks like. It's actually light enough for my skintone, which is rare for me with foundation-type products. (Also, have fun counting the freckles.)

So, here's me before applying the cream. As you can see, my skin is slightly splotchy with redness, and has a couple of impurities as well.

After applying a single layer of the BB cream, and then another 1-2 coats underneath the eyes, since I still had a little left over. The cream evens out my skin tone, and makes it fairly matte while still maintaining a healthy glow. It doesn't completely cover up the blemishes that I had, but it does make them less apparent.

What I really like about this product is how light it feels. It pretty much doesn't feel like I'm wearing anything; it's even lighter than the moisturiser I've been using lately. Pretty impressive when you consider this is effectively replacing a layer of moisturiser, sunscreen, primer and foundation. It's also a good primer. My eye make-up looks better and lasts quite a bit longer when I'm wearing this cream underneath. All in all, I really like this product. See, in the colder seaons, I don't mind using foundation, but when it gets warmer, just wearing my moisturiser can start to feel hot and sweaty, never mind using my foundation on top. This looks like it's the perfect product for those days! :)
