REVIEW: Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector B.B. Cream

I have wanted to try this product for the longest time. Originally I purchased this at CVS but had to return it because my face was going absolutely CRAZY from my acne regiment that I could NOT put anything on my face. My face was peeling, dry, flaky looking and regardless of how much Vitamin E lotion I put on it, it just would not go away. Applying any sort of face product to my face at that point in time would have been an issue because it would have not only drawn a LOT more attention to my face, but it would have aggravated it since my skin was super sensitive then. Just when I was considering going back out and purchasing it when I got my face under control (see Simple Skin product review here) I received an e-mail from BzzAgent inviting me to take part of the Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector B.B. Cream BzzCampaign. Perfect timing on both parts! So I opted in, selected Medium/Deep as my coverage need and awaited the package to arrive.

Quickly I just want to touch up on a few bits of information on the product itself from the products packaging:

- It is dermatologist tested and will not clog your pores
- Is a multi-benefit product that combines advanced skincare and immediate skin perfecting coverage
- After use skin will look naturally more even, radiant and smooth
- After just one use: 90% had more even complexion, 93% saw a more healthy glow and 96% saw smoother skin
- B.B. Cream (Beauty Balm Cream) combines several beauty routine steps into one single product

According to the packaging: “Garnier Skin Renew Miracle Skin Perfector is a miracle all-in-one product with results you can see and feel instantly. Skin appears airbrushed, beautifully smooth and even. Its light-weight and comfortable texture blends perfectly into skin for a sheer flawless finish. This all-in-one formula combines intense moisturizing skincare with Vitamin C + Mineral Pigments for an instant skin transformation:

• Renews radiance
• Brightens complexion
• Evens skin tone and blurs imperfections
• Hydrates for 24-hours
• Protects with SPF 15 UVA/UVB sunscreen against harmful effects of the sun – the #1 cause of skin aging.”

When my package arrived it came with a welcome packet from BzzAgent (see post Here , an information card, coupons and the product itself. I was so excited to use it, I opened the box and applied to my face and was rather, astounded by not only the coverage the product provides, but for the finish and the flawlessness it gave to my face. Now I have acne prone skin and I also have scarring thanks to my acne and it completely covered almost all of those marks up and concealed some of my redness. The before and after were really wowing. I turned to talk to my boyfriend and he looked at me and said “Oh wow” haha. I was on the fence as to if I was going to like this product just because I’ve never really had luck with liquid foundations/products. Lately I’ve been branching out more and more and trying different ones but I will say, I absolutely LOVE this product!

I am one of those girls who does not like to wear a whole lot of makeup on my face. I’d rather do my eye makeup and go. In the early mornings if time permits, I do a full face of makeup, but there are times where I’m running late and I just do my eyes and out the door I go. I particularly love this product because it’s VERY lightweight, it has superior coverage, it’s moisturizing (my face never feels dry during the day wearing this), and it leaves my face with this amazing glow that just makes me look like I’m radiating almost. The only negative for me is that I DO have to set this with a powder – I’ve been using my Milani mineral compact with this and/or my Tarte Smoothe Operator. I tend to have oily to combination skin and without a powder in a few hours I am shiny in spots. Even with the powder(s) I do get shiny, but it’s not overly crazy shiny.

Now how do I feel this lines up against the products promises?

• Renews radiance CHECK!
• Brightens complexion CHECK!
• Evens skin tone and blurs imperfections CHECK!
• Hydrates for 24-hours CHECK!
• Protects with SPF 15 UVA/UVB sunscreen against harmful effects of the sun – the #1 cause of skin aging.” FABULOUS! This eliminates one step for me in the mornings

Overall I absolutely LOVE this product! I will be repurchasing and I will be using this forever. I prefer this hands down over my mineral foundation and even over my Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse. It’s such an easy product to use (I put a little on my finger, dab all over my face and rub in with my fingertips). I don’t LOOK like I’m wearing any makeup and it just covers all my little imperfections and makes me look flawless. Love, love, love, love, LOVE! Seriously! I can’t get over how much I adore this product!
