Garnier BB Cream Miracle Skin Perfector - Product Review

GARNIER BB Cream Miracle Skin Perfector
Garnier BB Cream Miracle Skin Perfector Review
Hi, today I will be reviewing Garnier BB Cream Miracle Skin Perfector. Though I was not really fond of BB creams, I was very much satisfied with my daily wear foundation, but some times it's difficult to carry foundation plus skin nourishing cream within your purse, so I thought to give it a try. Now before I start the review, let me tell you what is a BB cream.

What is BB Cream:
BB cream is an all-in-one facial cream which can replace serum, moisturizer, primer, foundation, concealer and sunblock. It can be worn alone as a tinted moisturizer, or as a regular foundation or concealer, under pressed or loose powder, depending on the desired coverage.
BB or Beauty Balm Cream (also know as blemish balm, blemish base, beauty balm or beblesh balm) was originally formulated in Germany for patients who were under gone with surgeries. Then BB cream got quite popularity in South Korea for their craziness for healthy skin. The BB cream was very popular among Korean actresses and was named "the secret of Korean actresses".
With the increasing rate of popularity of BB creams all the famous cosmetic brand has now have their own version of BB creams. Recently Maybelline launched their BB cream in India, and now it is Garnier BB Cream Miracle Skin Perfector.

Product designing/ Packaging:
It comes in a regular tube packaging, nothing unique or interesting.

Color, Consistency and Fragrance of the product:
The BB Cream from Garnier is tinted like foundations, but comes only in one shade and the color of the cream is not too dark or light. The texture is pretty smooth and not greasy or oily and it has a very lovely vanilla fragrance.

Garnier BB Cream Miracle Skin Perfector Review
 My experience with Garnier BB Cream Miracle Skin Perfector:
First when I saw this Garnier BB Cream Miracle Skin Perfector, I was little confused that whether I should buy it or not, because it comes only in one shade, so I was bit worried, that what if it does not go with my skin tone as I have wheatish skin tone. But as the product is pretty inexpensive, I thought to give it a try. The cream just look like any regular foundation and is easy to blend. After applying on my skin my face became little white but within few minutes the cream got absorbed into my skin and was miraculously matched to my skin tone! (you can refer in the image above). The smell is really good, and most of the sunscreen with SPF in it gives me cakey face but this Garnier BB cream did not gave any white caste to my face though it contains SPF 24. After applying it one can really see the difference, It gives a healthy glow to my skin. It also covers fine lines and even out the skin tone. Also keep skin moisturised for 3 to 4 hours. You can wear it with foundation or with pressed or loose powder, can also be used as a makeup base, but do not expect more than sheer coverage from any BB cream. So I am pretty happy with the product, after a very long time I can say that I am really satisfied with a product of Garnier.

What I liked about the Garnier BB Cream Miracle Skin Perfector:
  • Does what it claims
  • Blends easily
  • Even tone skin
  • People with dry and sensitive skin can use it
  • Gives healthy glow
  • Gives sheer covera
  • It moisturises skin for 3 to 4 hrs
  • Cover fine lines
  • It has SPF 24
  • Travel friendly and hygienic packaging
  • Pleasant fragrance
  • Very cheap
  • Easily available
  What I don’t like about Garnier BB Cream Miracle Skin Perfector:
  • Comes with only one shade
Will I repurchase: 
Yes absolutely, it is worthy find.

  1. I love to read your blog and find it very helpful. But i beg to differ you that I used BB and did not find it very useful. I applied it everyday while going to office, and still I have tanned considerably!!! :(

    1. Hi Tapol,
      welcome to my blog and I am glad you find it helpful but at the same time I feel very sorry that garnier bb cream did not work for you, actually this is the second product from garnier that has worked for me, I personally do not like the brand that much but as their bb cream was sensibly priced so I tried it and luckily it worked. You have not mentioned your skin type, so I can not refer any of the popular bb creams to you but still if you want a solution for your tan you can try some home remedy like haldi and yoghurt paste or you can try somi ayurvedic's glow active if the product is available in your place. I hope you get rid off your tan soon. :)

  2. is this really 99 RS/- in india, here in US it is around 12$ .i think it's not the original one

    1. Yes its Rs/- 99 for 18gms and Rs/-199 for 40 gms and its absolutely ORGINAL, garnier has introduced this product with this price officially all over the India with celebrity endorsement , but if they selling it over US in 12$ thts injustice!! :O
