REVIEW: GARNIER BB CREAM

Lately, as the weather has been warming up, I have been swapping my foundation for BB creams because they are much more lightweight. The one which has become my absolute favourite is the Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector for Oily and Combination skin and it has become something I use everyday. The main reason being that it is just so lightweight and breathable that it doesn't even feel like your wearing anything at all!

I use the shade Light/Clair and I find that it is the perfect colour for me except for when I'm tan in which case I just use extra bronzer so it isn't an issue. Overall the colouring is really nice, not too yellow, orange or pink.  

I find that with only one layer of this, the product has covered everything I want it to up. So it has great coverage especially considering it's only a BB Cream and not a foundation.This is perfect for everyday use to replace foundation and I just set mine with a translucent powder. Using this with a concealer really does give me flawless coverage so I think that unless you have really acne affected skin, this should give you a great flawless finish.

The fact that it is made for oily to combination skin unfortunately means that this product does contain a fair amount of alcohol which can lead to drying out your skin. I don't find this to be much of an issue for me but you can definitely smell the alcohol in it. 

The tube contains 40ml of product and considering you only use quite a small amount, it lasts you a fairly long time! I have already stocked up with a second bottle but that's just because I saw it on sale and I am not even half way through this first tube yet so won't be needing to replace it for a while. 

The RRP for this BB Cream is $13.95 which is what I paid for my first bottle but you can find it much cheaper on sale because I bought my backup bottle for only $7.99. So if you compare these prices to the cost of your regular foundation, you can see that this is a much cheaper alternative especially because it gives you good coverage!

I definitely reccomend picking this up for the warmer weather, a complete summer essential!
Thank you so much for reading :)
