A while back I tried Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector BB Cream (the ‘normal’ one) in Light and was disappointed with it as it was very sheer. I’d read various reviews that said the Garnier Anti-ageing BB Cream gave more coverage, so I thought that I’d give this one a try and see what it did for my uneven complexion.
To be honest, I wasn’t expecting much as I’d already been disappointed by Garnier’s ‘original’ BB Cream but I didn’t see much difference between these two and this one also gave a very light coverage. The Anti-Ageing BB Cream does even out my skin tone a little and disguises most of the pigmentation marks but it doesn’t hide them completely, like foundation would, although it does even them out enough for me not to worry about looking “patchy”. It also covers the odd blemish, leaving me with a much more radiant looking complexion and a barely there, “not wearing make-up” look, which is great for those days when I don’t really want to be wearing full-on make-up (like going to the beach, etc.) but still want to feel confident and comfortable in my own skin.
One thing that I don’t like about this product is the slightly scented smell and the oily texture. Once I’ve applied this to my face, my skin feels quite greasy and I have to apply powder to try and combat this. It’s not a bad sheer or light coverage BB Cream but it’s not the right one for my oily skin.
I don’t think I’ll be purchasing or recommending this one. Unfortunately for Garnier, I’ll be going back to using Oasis BB Cream!
Garnier Anti-ageing BB Cream is available from selected supermarkets, department stores, pharmacies and online.
