I have no experience of 'real' BB creams to compare this too, but I really like it. It does seem pretty similar to a tinted moisturiser to me, but it has a different consitency and gives better coverage without looking heavy like a foundation would. It's also less moisturising than I thought it would be, I tend to still use a bit of my normal moisturiser before applying this.
1. Before: no makeup. 2. After: Garnier BB cream + under-eye concealer, blusher and finishing powder.
1. Garnier BB cream + under-eye concealer only. 2. Normal foundation, concealer, blusher and finishing powder routine.
Overall, I would recommend the Garnier BB cream but I don't think it's completely amazing. I would be interested to try some other kinds of BB creams to see how they compare. I can see myself getting a lot of use out of this for daytime wear but if I'm going on a night out I would definitely stick to foundation.
Have you tried the Garnier BB cream yet? What did you think of it?
