I have been using this product since last week and I was pretty impressed.The packaging was a sleek gold/bronzed 50ml in a squeezable tube with a flip-top lid containing the generous amount of product.I tried the Light shade( I also have this in Medium) since my skin is acidic and so far it blends perfectly. The texture of this cream is a thick gel like consistency when applied, feel soft, smooth and absorbs into the skin quickly . I took a blob of cream and just tapped all over my face and spread evenly out with my fingers. When I first applied this cream, I felt little greasy on my skin and a little lighter than my skintone but it settles after few minutes.It instantly gives me a feeling of hydration, smooth and fresh/glowy skin.The coverage is great.I have oily skin but this doesn’t aggravate my skin’s condition,it just give me that dewy healthy glow that I love!I love that this doesn’t make my skin slicky even it’s around 6PM..So,here’s the summary of my experience using this product:
~ It is long wearing and great for those days when you don't want to use full foundation but wants a glowing and natural fresh looking skin
~ Gives natural coverage, spreads evenly to give a flawless finish without the heaviness of foundation
~Has SPF 15
~Mineral based with Vitamin C
THE NOT SO GOOD
~not available locally
~comes only in two shades
~has a light fruity scent (a typical scent for most Garnier face products)
So far,I was impressed with my Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector BB cream,I definitely use this everyday!Too bad I can’t repurchased when it’s done:)So for now I will just enjoying this till it's last drop.How about you,have you tried this one?Share your experience!
