The thing is, I’d tried tinted moisturisers before and didn’t really think that much of them. This was because I felt like they didn’t give enough coverage, were too greasy and it felt like I was moisturising make-up into my face basically.
However, these BB creams are a lot more than just tinted moisturisers. They are beauty balms which combine serum, moisturiser, primer, foundation and sunblock all into one product. Clever huh?!
So, unlike the tinted moisturisers, which do actually end up rubbing foundation into your skin, this product will protect you as the primer in the product acts as a shield against the foundation being absorbed, however the serum in the cream still leaves your face hydrated. What’s more, the product has SPF which means you are protected from the sun too!
I decided to try Garnier‘s BB Cream Miracle Skin Perfector as I also use their face moisturiser and gradual tan lotion & I love both of these products. I have to say, once again, they’ve created a great product that I really love.
The cream glides on easily, provides great coverage, makes my skin look healthy and glowing (without looking shiny) and last all day. Obviously, there are some days that you want to wear full foundation, such as when you are going on a night out. However, for everyday use, this product is perfect and makes you feel like you are still being good to your skin when you are wearing it.
It is also perfectly for sunny city breaks, where you are walking in the sun, but won’t be jumping in a pool every five seconds, as it contains SPF 15 and isn’t greasy whatsoever. Being an all-in-one cream also means that it saves space in your make-up bag & means you don’t have to spend out on lots of different products – what a result!
The Garnier BB Cream Miracle Skin Perfector is available in two different shades and is £7.99 for a 50ml bottle in Superdrug.
Let me know what you think of BB creams; they’ve certainly won me around – especially this one!
