I had heard a lot on BB creams and wondered actually what is meant by a BB cream. Then Maybelline came with its own BB cream. I had a huge urge for buying it but didn’t buy it. Now don’t ask me why because I also don’t know why I didn’t try it. But when I saw Garnier coming with their BB cream I knew I am going to own this and the moment I saw it in Health and Glow, it made its way to my daily routine.

I feel all that has been claimed by the company stands true to a great extent. I don’t expect a miracle product but at least a product which decently does what it claims. The cream is really light weight with a sweet mild smell which is loved by my nose. I apply the cream in dots all over my face and neck and with my clean finger tips spread it evenly. It doesn’t take much time to get absorbed. And once absorbed it leaves back a nice matte glow and feels really light on the skin and makes your skin very soft to touch. My skin was oil free throughout the day. But girls with very dry skin may require moisturizing prior to application.
I don’t know in the long run if it’s going to help my skin get perfect but at least post application is evens out my skin tone but fails to cover all the dark spots.
The best thing I love about this product is – it moisturizes, gives a foundation finish and protects my skin from sun damage. Now I need not carry 3-4 products in my vanity.
But it comes in only one shade
To summarize: – A decent product. This is not a miracle product so please don’t expect miracles to happen else you will get depressed resulting in dark circles. Lol.
Very Light weight.
Post application provides a soft and matte glow.
Helps skin to remain oil-free,
Mild soothing fragrance.
Gives sheer coverage
Packaging is quite cute yet sturdy and travel friendly
Over all an all-in-one product (moisturizer + foundation + sun protection)
Cons:Only one shade is available.
Dry skin may require additional moisturization
Overall rating: 4.5/5
My recommendation: I will try and stick to this until I get something better and at the same time would recommend everybody to try this at least once.
