When a person like Deepika Padukone confidently takes your through the top 5 benefits of the Garnier BB cream, you know we all think of getting our hands on it.
I’ve never really used Garnier skin care products much (Except for some flavoured cleansers I loved in the past) so I didn’t have any clue about how this BB cream.
Garnier BB (Beauty Benefit) claims to be an all in one daily moisturiser that instantly beautifies your skin and spreads evenly for a flawless finish. It helps in fairer looking skin giving a healthy glow with zero imperfections keeping up to as long as 8 hours moisturisation with SPF 24.
Garnier says that this BB Cream is a new generation of skin care. It combines multiple beauty routine steps in one and hence saves time. It is enriched with Vitamin C known to have antioxidant properties. It is an 8H moisturising formula with almond extracts.
It comes in this beige coloured slender tube packaging with a silver cap to enclose it from the top, it is a convenient, light weight and travel friendly product. It fits into my hand bad easily and it doesn’t look cheap at all!
As soon as you open the cap, you smell something refreshing, its beautifully scented. Thankfully, not the chalk-ish, boring smell. Hence, it didn’t disappoint me with the fragrance part.
The texture is a lightweight formula which is more like a tinted moisturiser, with a normal thick-liquid consistency.
It stays put for a pretty long while -it does brighten your tone a bit and ensures it stays on your face for 6-8 hours.
It doesn’t moisturise upto the level my skin needs so if you have a very dry skin like me, prior moisturisation may be required but one thing that I like is that it quickly gets absorbed into the skin.
Pigmentation wise, it scores average but manages to even out my skin covering minor imperfections minus the under eye area. After all it looks natural, almost like a second skin and that’s what I really need. It is ideal for those who have near about flawless skin and do not need much coverage. I like this as a great daily wear substitute for the foundation on top of which I apply the concealer under my eye area to cover the dark circles because I feel that this BB cream is not sufficient enough for my under eye darkness.
It also managed to keep my skin soft and smooth for a long time.
The conclusion of this Garnier BB Cream depends on how much coverage you need, how much moisturiser you need and whats your general preference about an everyday SPF routine. I think for college girls on a budget, this is quite nice actually. This is priced at INR 169/- for a product size of 30 gm.
