Review: Garnier BB Cream


      I was given another opportunity from BzzAgent to review this new Garnier facial product! I jumped at the chance! This one is called Garnier Skin Renew Miracle Skin Perfector B.B. Cream. Mine's for combination to oily skin and in the light/medium shade (there's 3 to choose from).
          Beauty Balms weren't FDA approved in the U.S. until recently, so that is why many are seeing an influx of these, questioning where they came from. Prior to this they were only available in, like, Europe & stuff. Blah, blah, blah.
      I just wanna say that I was not prepared for what was in the tube. The B.B. cream is actually tinted and reminds me of liquid foundation, but the consistency is thinner, making it go on smoother & allowing more product for usage (which is fantastic because my 2yo has already painted himself and my bathroom sink with it twice and I still have plenty left!).
     I love how this cream gives my skin a matte finish so my face does not appear oily (I have combo skin) even after a run (Yes, I am that girl who tests her makeup products for stability and performance during sweat sessions). Sure, it comes off if I dab it while sweating, but for the most part it stays.

This is what my skin looked like before using the product:

This is with the product on:

And this is after using the product almost daily for a few weeks:

       Believe it or not, it's actually cleared up my skin (and evened out my tone a bit)!  I love how quick this cream goes on! It's lighter and easier to apply than my liquid foundation, and gives me a smoother tone than my mineral powder. I have been seeing coupons for this in the paper, so it should be available at your local retailer. I keep forgetting to check our Walmart while we're there because I'm sure I have enough left in this tube to last me through summer! If you wear these types of face products, I definitely recommend trying out this beauty balm.
