Tried and Tested: Garnier BB Cream


Did you know you can get freebies and make product reviews without being a blogger? Several German beauty brands give you the possibility to try their newest products and all you have to do in return is to make a little online evaluation. The drugstore dm regularly informs about new product tests on its Facebook page and Garnier announces recent product tests on its web page. A few weeks ago I discovered the Garnier product tests and applied for a BB Cream testing. After trying it I decided to share my opinions on the product with you as well.


Garnier BB Cream Miracle Skin Perfector 5 in 1 Blemish Balm (matte-effect / for oily and combination skin / light)

What does Garnier say?
- anti shine
- blurs pores and imperfections
- evens tone and boosts glow
- moisturizes
- SPF 20 UV protection

How did it work for me?
First of all I should say that I have tried a Garnier BB Cream before which I didn't like so I was super curious to see whether this one was better or not. And it definitely is! I think the texture improved a lot and after using this BB Cream for the first time I was already convinced. The anti shine effect works super well and after applying the cream my skin looks as if I had used a face powder. Pores and imperfections are indeed blured (but not covered as obviously this isn't a real foundation). After applying the cream I really feel that my skin looks way better and I dare to leave the house with just the BB Cream on. That it gives my skin a certain glow is true as well, I have particularly noticed this when applying the cream under my eyes. When it comes to moisturizing the cream is quite okay as well, my skin doesn't feel dry after using it but there could be just a hint more hydratation. As you can see I am really satisfied with the cream and the absolute highlight is that the light shade of the cream suits my skin tone perfectly! I have seen expensive foundations that come in 4 or more shades where no shade suited my skin tone and now we have this simple BB Cream which only comes in 2 shades and the light one is perfect for me!



With all this positivity you might be wondering if there isn't a weak point about this cream as well, right? Well for me it's maybe just the price because it costs as much as my foundation, which would be okay if it could really replace my foundation and my other face creams but I will still use my foundation for bigger events and I still need a regular face cream to use at night. But that's just a small weak point so I'm really likely to rebuy the cream for myself and I am also on the lookout for the Garnier BB Eye Cream roll-on which must be gorgeous as well.
Have you been able to try any Garnier BB Cream product? If not, which other BB Cream is your favourite?

  4. Don't you think it's a bit too "orange" that's why I don't like BB cream it never works for me, I think it gives too much the sun skin impression...

    1. Hey dear :)
      Well in fact I haven´t been trying many BB Creams before so in fact I can only talk about this Garnier one. I didn´t have the impression it looks orange at all, probably I should also add the the colour looks better on my face than on my hand which I used for the picture. It´s hard to keep the real effect in pictures anyway ;)
      However I hope you´ll be able to find a BB Cream that matches for you :)

  8. Ich hatte früher die BB Cream benutzt, aber jetzt nicht mehr - wegen der Inhaltsstoffe usw... benutze jetzt nur noch die frei Tagespflege :)

  9. Great review Carmen!!! I haven't had much luck with BB creams. I need a lot of coverage, so I always find them too light for me. I wish I could wear them instead of foundation. HaHaHa That would be great. I so appreciate your comment today. When I saw it, I thought the same thing. That they could pick someone warmer. Instead they went with popular. I wanted to see if someone mentioned it. And YOU did! So that was awesome.
