Garnier B.B. Cream Miracle Skin Perfector Light
Advantages: A good colour match
Disadvantages: It doesn't work!
This was one of the first Blemish Balm's that came onto the UK market and as such there was a huge marketing campaign and a lot of hype surrounding it. Like a fool, I was drawn in and thought that it would be some miracle product. It was supposed to deliver all sorts of results and I should have known it was too good to be true. The cream features SPF15, and claims to blur blemishes while slightly illuminating and evening skin tone, but without the look of heavy make up.
Priced at £9.99 (but I bought on offer at £6.99) I think that this is too highly priced for the results it gives and should be described as tinted moisturiser because It felt like this is all it did for my skin. The coverage was poor and not long lasting. Apart from this my main annoyance is that it made my face look excessively oily. Not a good look!
The cream itself felt very smooth and silky, but as I've said was of thin consistency. Colour wise I went for the light shade, which gave me a slight healthy glow, and I was quite pleased with the colour match. A little bit of this goes a long way, which would make it quite economical, but unfortunately this was a total waste of money for me, as I would not feel confident enough to go out with only this on my face. I usually get on really well with Garnier products, but they have let themselves down with this.
Summary: Doesn't deliver the promises it makes.
