Short for Beauty Balm, Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector B.B. Cream combines intense hydration with tinted minerals and Vitamin C, so you can ditch that drawn-out beauty routine for naturally more even, radiant, and smooth skin in minutes.
The Back Story on B.B. Creams:
1960: German dermatologist Dr. Schrammek creates the first B.B. Cream to soothe, protect and heal patients' skin, and to cover redness after peeling treatments and other procedures.
2006: South Korea learns that B.B. Creams are the secret behind the famed skin of their favorite celebrities, eventually making them a must-have product throughout Asia.
2011: Luxury brands start launching B.B. Creams in the United States.
2012: Garnier is the first to introduce B.B. Cream in the mass market, making revolutionary skincare affordable for everyone.
I'm a BzzAgent and I got my second BzzKit last month. I was given a tube of the Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector B.B. Cream and coupons to share with family and friends.
Comes in two shades: Light/Medium and Medium/Deep.
I am an NC42 with MAC and Medium/Deep is a little dark for me. I hope they can have a wider range of shades in the future.
Affordable. $12.99. Available at mass retailers such as Target and Walmart.
Lightweight and won't break you out.
Light to medium coverage.
Has SPF 15, great for everyday use but leaves a white cast under flash photography.
Easy to apply and contains mineral pigments which melt instantly upon application.
Moisturizing and gives a healthy glow. Great for dry skin.
Hit or miss for combination skin like mine.
I like the idea of a product that claims to renew radiance, brighten your complexion, even out skin tone and blur imperfections, hydrate for 24 hours, and protect against UVA & UVB rays with SPF 15 BUT this B.B. cream is not for all skin types. I have combination skin and I had to set it with a matte powder and still had to blot my t-zone every two hours or so. I will not use this often during the summer.
I don't recommend this for oily skin.
I hope my review was helpful.
