Garnier BB Skin Renew Cream – A Review and Giveaway! CAN 10/19

| September 25, 2014 | 69 Comments

Garnier BB creamA couple of months ago I reviewed The Body Shop’s All-In-One BB Cream. Overall I was impressed with the product and had continued to use it, but when I was presented with the opportunity to review Garnier’s BB products, I was anxious to see how they compared.

As you may recall, I am not a big makeup person and I don’t like to spend too much time fussing with my face, so BB creams, with their combination of moisturizing and cover-up properties greatly appeal to me. They save time and can save money.

Garnier Canada was nice enough to give me the following products to sample, each with a suggested retail price of $19.99 CDN: Garnier Skin Renew BB Cream Miracle Skin Perfector Anti-Aging, Garnier Skin Renew BB Cream Miracle Skin Perfector Combination to Oily Skin; Garnier Skin Renew BB Cream All In One Miracle Skin Perfector, and the Garnier BB Eye Miracle Skin Perfector Eye Roller. Unlike The Body Shop BB creams that are sold exclusively at The Body Shop, Garnier’s BB creams are available at most drugstores as well as leading retailers nationwide making for convenient replenishment.

As a thirty (cough) something year old woman, the anti-aging formulation really appealed to me, so the Garnier Skin Renew BB Cream Miracle Skin Perfector Anti-Aging was the first one I tried. The cream is not as runny as its competitor and comes out in the skin-tone marked on the package. Garnier offers various skin tones including light, light/medium and medium/dark. The cream applies smoothly and evenly and my face instantly felt softer. This cream claims to reduce the look of wrinkles, firm skin, even tone, and hydrate for 24 hours. While I didn’t leave it on for 24 hours, it did smooth my skin’s appearance and evened the tone. It also didn’t leave an unpleasant residue on my hands or make my skin feel oily.

Garnier BB creamThe next product I tried was Garnier’s BB Eye Miracle Skin Perfector Eye Roller. I will admit that I had my doubts about people wanting to pay $19.99 CDN for a 8ml bottle that claims to correct dark circles, minimize puffiness, awaken skin, even skin tone, and hydrate, but I will also admit that I liked this product. It was a convenient size to travel with and to carry in my purse. Each application did not use up a lot of product and it really did reduce the puffiness under my eyes caused by seasonal allergies (darn ragweed). Garnier’s BB Eye Miracle Skin Perfector Eye Roller is perfect for the woman on the go who may be suffering from lack of sleep, but doesn’t want it to show under her eyes!

Garnier BB creamMy favourite product from Garnier’s BB Cream line is the Garnier Skin Renew BB Cream Miracle Skin Perfector Combination to Oily Skin. My skin is a combination dry to oily depending on the time of month as well as the time of year. This product contains an anti-shine ingredient that helped reduce the shine on my forehead as well as minimized] the look of my pores around my nose and chin, all while hydrating the dry areas on my cheeks. It is a great product for people, like myself, who have unpredictable skin and need a product that caters to various skin conditions.

While I wouldn’t say Garnier’s BB creams offer instant perfection, they are a welcome addition to my daily routine. They go on smoothly and evenly and make my skin look and feel great! My only wish is that the creams also offered SPF protection so that I didn’t have to apply sunscreen on my face prior to applying their cream, but given the complexity of their creams I have hope that they are looking to add a sunscreen ingredient to their products. In the meantime, I recommend applying a light non-oily sunscreen under the BB creams.me

So, after having tried both The Body Shop and Garnier BB creams, I can honestly say that I like both products, but that my preference is now for Garnier simply because they offer diverse BB cream formulations for various skin types, their cream is a little thicker, making application a little less messy, and because of the addition of the Garnier’s BB Eye Miracle Skin Perfector Eye Roller that makes for a complete BB cream package.
