Maybe some of you remember that I attended the Garnier BB Cream Press Lunch *click*. We got the BB cream for testing purposes and I used it several times by now and I truly like it!
Here again some pics of the cream and the two shades that are available:
My main concern was that it would be too dark for me. From the swatch above you can see that the light version is actually not that light at all..
I applied it and it adapted! It really did, that was so cool, I didn't think it could adapt that well, but it did and after that we became best friends.
I mean I gotta say, it easily could be that it will be too dark in december. I do sort of have my summer colour at the moment and it usually gets lighter in winter.
This BB cream is certainly different from my Missha BB cream. The Missha BB cream is like a foundation - just better. The one from Garnier still belongs to skincare in my opinion. It's not that pigmented, but no one ever said it would be.
The Garnier one is like a tinted moisturiser with more "effects". You have the SPF15, the skin brightening (not bleaching) effect, the anti-aging ingredients, the moisturiser and the touch of foundation/concealer.
It smells nice and fresh, like their face creams do and applies and lasts fine, but it doesn't conceal redness or pimples, so if you're looking for that, you'll need to get the cream from Missha. Nevertheless, it does even out your skin and makes it look healthy and balanced as you can see on the pic below. I'm wearing the BB cream and the Caffeine Anti Dark circles roller ball underneath my eyes:
