Garnier BB cream 5 in 1 : Miracle skin perfector

Hello Sweethearts,
Today I'm reviewing the BB cream 5 in 1 by Garnier.

I got this BB cream in my first glossybox ever. I wasn't sure if I was going to use it or even like it. After using it for the past few weeks I decided that it's time to review it. I have the 02 in light skin.

The first claimes I see on the packaging are: Directly perfect skin. Followed by hydrates 24 hours, smooths out the skin, blurs fine lines and imperfections, gives a radiant complexion, protects UVA / UVB SPF 15.
With vitamine C + Mineral pigments. Dermatologically tested.
There are more claimes on the packaging but I'm not going to write them all down because you can easily read that when your in the store or something.

What I really liked about this 'foundation'/moisturazer is that you can't apply to much of it. I remember when I first started to use foundation I automatically used to much. Leaving my skin with more unevenness than without the foundation. I actually went in and tried out what happend if I added another layer of this cream after I already applied one. Nothing actually happend at all, you couldn't even tell I applied more. So I would so far recommend this bb-cream to everyone who just started using foundation.

I also tried it with concealer underneed this BB-cream and it may felt less like wearing a cream but it did look very nice. And the most important thing it stayed in place the whole entire day.

My hands are a little bit darker than my face. I also took a picture of the blend out but their is not point in posting it since you can't tell if I'm wearing the BB-cream on my hand.

WARNING: I'm going to show a picture of my skin without anything on it. I took a part of my face with a LOT of acne to really show you the working of this cream. If you don't like those kind of pictures please scroll down to the end result.

The before picture.

The after picture.

As you can see it gives a almost perfect coverig. I didn't use any concealer. I also like about it that it doesn't look like your wearing foundation or something unnatural.
What I think is a huge minus is that it makes my skin look extremely shinny after I applying it. It takes 15 minutes before the shinniness is less/gone.  I have normal to sensitive skin but if you have dry skin it wouldn't be a problem. If you have oily skin I would recommend to not apply anything underneed it, like I did, & to apply a little bit of powder foundation on the problem areas.

I give this BB cream a 7.5 out of 10.

What would you give this bb cream?
Have you already tried out a BB cream?
So yes which one?
Would you recommend it?

  1. I currently use the Maybelline BB cream and am in love with it, but got given this one the other day, I've not yet tried it out but by the looks of it, it does a really good job! The Maybelline one is the same in that it leaves the face a bit shiny, but that normally goes away after about 5 minutes :)


    1. You should deff give it a try C:
      And thanks I will check out the maybelline BB cream ^^
