BB Cream Review

Happy Monday everybody! Last week I received a tube of Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector Oil-Free BB Cream courtesy of BzzAgent. I've been waiting for the chance to use it since BB creams are the new thing nowadays. I was even more excited since it's oil-free and I tend to have super oily and acne prone skin. (Boo) 

Here's what the tube looked like: 
  The tube is pretty good size so I bet it will last a long time. 

The BB cream itself was a thinner consistency than I expected, but it went on smooth and blended pretty well. It comes in three shades. Light/Medium, Medium/Dark and Dark. I was sent the Light/Medium. The color is a little dark for me just coming out of winter, but I'm paler than most on a good day #gingersunite

I'll probably wait a few months to see how it matches with my skin tone, and if it's still too dark I'll give it to a friend. It's really not a drastic difference though so it might just end up being my summer BB cream.

As far as how it wore, it did make my skin feel nice and smooth. Having a not so great complexion to being with, I definitely need the shine control and pore minimizing that this BB cream provides. It hydrates just like most BBs without feeling heavy or sticky, and has SPF 20, which is a plus since it cuts out a step from my routine. (Insert redhead joke here)  

Here's a before & after:

I look super excited to be posting a pic with no makeup don't I? But you can see it does even out the redness in my face.

And please let's not even talk about my haircut. I made a super last minute appointment last week and went to whoever was available. She never used scissors only a razor to cut it and I pretty much hate it. Who knew you could mess up long layers? I feel like it looks so ratty :(

Overall I think the Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector Oil-Free BB Cream worked out really well. I usually use a mattifier under my foundation and I didn't with this just to test it and it really did keep my skin pretty shine free. The tube is a good size value for the suggested price of $12.99 as well.

So any of you oily skin gals who are still trying to decide what kind of BB cream is right for you, I recommend the Garnier!
