I have been MIA for the past week as I went on a family trip to Chidambaram in Tamil Nadu. I attended my bestie’s marriage and saw natyanjali programme live there.
Now coming back to the post, I am going to review the famed Garnier BB cream today. I am always skeptical about trying a new product that almost everyone claims to be good as I had bad experience in a similar fashion with a newly launched variant of sunsilk shampoo. Moreover when this product was launched, I had very bad breakouts which stopped me from trying this raved product.
Now that my skin is slowly returning to its old glory (special thanks to shweta of glam n gloss), I got emboldened to try this.
Instantly: Skin looks naturally more even, radiant and smooth.
After just one use
96% of women reported instantly smoothed skin upon application
90% of women noticed a more even complexion
93% of women said that their skin had a healthy glow after use
Rs. 99 for 18g
Rs. 199 for 40g
My expectation for the perfect cream for the no-makeup look is completely satisfied by this product.
Application is hassle-free as it gets absorbed easily. It did not give the ashy look or uneven feel. It felt so light on my skin, made it look naturally bright. Though the coverage was pretty sheer, I am happy with the way it made my skin look. It is perfect for the no-makeup look. It evens out my skin tone to a great extent. It did not irritate my sensitive skin. The only con which I found was that its moisturizing abilities were not sufficient for my skin. I have combination skin that becomes dry around the nose and cheeks in winters. If you are dry skinned a decent moisturizer is a must.
The packing is travel friendly and light. It does not have any bothering smell to it. In fact I loved its smell.
Let me summarize the pros and cons:
1. Travel friendly packing.
2. Very light on skin.
3. Gives a natural glow/brightness.
4. Evens out skin tone to a great extent.
5. Contains SPF.
6. Easily available both online and offline.
7. Pocket friendly.
1. Does not provide enough miniaturization for dry skin.
2. Pretty sheer coverage. More sheer than the Maybelline one.
I Love this and I am going to happily overlook the cons till I find a better product for everyday no-makeup look.
Hope you girls loved the review.
