Garnier BB Cream

Anyone try this?? I've been really interested in using a BB cream for a while now but most of them are over 30 bucks and I just can't justify spending that much money right now. I saw that Garnier has put one out and I'm wondering if anyone's had any experience with it, good or bad? It's under 15 bucks so I might get it and save the receipt and see how I do with it. :happy10:

    I actually ended up buying it late afternoon because I just couldn't resist!!! I'm wearing it now and so far, I like it. It went on smoothly, no streaks, and my skin feels very soft. Yay!!!!:love4:

    Just bumping this thread to say that I absolutely love the Garnier BB cream. Seriously in love. I love it more than any tinted sunscreen+moisturizer product I have ever used. I love how moisturising it is, I love the colour, I love the coverage and I love that it has vitamin c to help even out my millions of freckles (some of which have joined up and look like age spots, or may actually be early age spots and I may be in denial).

    That is all ;)

    I find it a little greasy. I am in Colorado where extra moisture is good, but I am not sure I will buy this again.

    I haven't tried the Garnier BB Cream. BB also stands for Blemish Balm.

    I tried Missha Perfect Cover BB Cream and it's been HG for me. I expected to have to switch to one of their less creamy formulas in the summer, to help prevent shine, but I haven't needed to yet.

    I will have to give the Garnier a try when I see it on sale. Glad to hear that you like it so much!
