My Initial Thoughts:
The first time I used it I expected a regular moisturizer maybe with a tint of color (remember I'm not too familiar with BB cream).This is the color of the product in Medium/Deep:
At first I was worried that it might be a bit too dark for my skin but it actually matched my skin perfectly. Pleasantly surprised is an understatement, I couldn't believe how great this stuff evened out my skin tone, better than any other primer I've used! It also made my skin look like it was airbrushed. So I used it the next day, and the day after that and so on. With everyday I loved it even more. Since I used tanning beds for years and baked out in the sun for so long I just started noticing a little discoloration in my skin, I know, horrible, right!
When I first read the back of the package and saw this I really didn't believe that I would get these exact results. However, I did! my complexion was so much more even, I definitely saw a nice healthily glow and my skin did seem smoother. I am more than impressed with this product, maybe it's because I never used a BB cream before. I'm not sure, either way I love it.
You only need a thin layer because the consistency is pretty thick even though it goes on sheer. It leaves my skin feeling dewy and its actually quite moisturizing. I thought I might have to apply a light weight moisturizer underneath because my skin tends to get dry sometimes but so far this has worked fine.
I applied a thin layer to my hand so you can see the before and after results.
You can see how much more even my skin looks in the right picture. It looks even better on my face but you guys get the idea.
- Contains UVA and UVB Sunscreen, always a plus!
- My sometimes oily T-Zone has been invisible ever since using this.
- It has a little more coverage than a tinted moisturizer but less than foundation, I've been able to leave the house with just this on my face and feel good about it.
- The color matched my skin exactly.
- Since it goes on so sheer, I don't see a problem with the color you select not matching your skin tone.
- After using this product I feel that $12.99 is a bargain for what your getting.
- If you have sun spots/discoloration or freckles that you want to hide, this will help.
To be honest I couldn't think of anything negative to say, Garnier really did a good job at stepping up their game with this new product.
Have you guys tried this product or any other BB creams, if so what do you think about them. I would love to hear your opinion.
