Garnier Introduces New BB Cream for Combo to Oily Skin!

Hands up, my heart sank a little when I opened a package last week from Garnier and saw 'BB' staring back at me. You see BBs and me, we don't get on. Last year I put the original Garnier offering to the test and it wasn't pretty, although I loved the fragrance, it didn't love me and my poor visage broke out like a mo' fo' within 2 straight days of trialling it. It almost broke my heart to read reviews lauding it as the 'new best thing evah!', knowing it wasn't for me. That was until last week.

It's lucky I don't only rely on first impressions and take the time to actually read press releases, as this BB is nathin' like it predecessor and that's a very good thing (for me)(& no doubt many, many other ladies). Designed for oily to combination skin (although mine is normal) this Miracle Skin Perfector sports factor 20 SPF and boasts several skin benefits.

Garnier BB Miracle Skin Perfector: Available in Light & Medium from June 2012 - €14.99
First impressions are that this incarnation of BB is much less perfumed and more liquid than it's unctuous ancestor. Sebum fighting properties include Ultra Absorbant Perlight that work through the day, uncoated mineral pigments endeavour to even out your skin tone, they blur imperfections and blend out to a matte yet hydrated finish.

Not competely matte but closer than the original BB ever hoped to get
I wore this BB for 4 days running with absolutely no sign of break out, though I did brace myself every morning before looking in the mirror. On the skin I found it slightly drying but that was only on the day I forgot to use my Clarins Hydraquench so I'd highly recommend using your daily moisturiser before application in the morning to be on the safe side. It's now happily sitting in my morning make up stash to be used on rotation.

The one drawback with this product? It's only available in two colours so far, which will leave a lot of ladies disappointed though when I read right to the last line of the press release... 'Look out for further additions to the BB 'wardrobe' later this year'. Excellenté!

Are you a BB fan? Got a favourite?

Glad they've taken the fragrance out, the original one was like a bottle of perfume! There seems to be a better range of colours in the Maybelline one. Don't know if it's fragrance free though. Had a look in my local pharmacy but they had the security tags pasted over the ingredients list :(

would love to have flawless skin so i could get away with wearing just a BB, unfortunately i have quite large pores and very oily skin, nothing stops my skin from shining, makeup just seems to disintingrate on me, but wud be good for around the house if i don't have to go anywhere, might give it a whirl

I can't wait for this. The original gave me a gorgeous glow but made me break out :(

Great review. Have you tried asian bb creams? those work a lot better. I have oily/combo skin too. I use the Skin 79 Hot Pink Super Plus Beblesh Balm, its made for oily skin and works great.

I NEVER break out from anything, ever! except for when I use this :/ Even though it doesn't have a very perfumed smell like the original, it does have a strange chemical-like scent, I think it also has alcohol in it, When I used this for the first time it was fine, the second time I started to break out, and now whenever I use this I get spots :( But the annoying thing is - I love this bb cream! It looks so nice on the skin, and doesn't make me look dry or anything, it's so upsetting :'(

I've tried out the testers for the light one and it seems great. The only problem is every time I go to buy it there only color is medium! EUGH! The original just made my face look like I'd poured oil on it, it was awful!!

I almost never create remarks, but i did some searching and wound up here "Garnier Introduces New BB Cream for Combo to Oily Skin!".
And I actually do have 2 questions for you if you usually do not
mind. Is it just me or does it look like a few of these responses come across like they are left
by brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are writing on other online sites, I'd like to keep up with anything new you have to post. Could you make a list of the complete urls of your shared pages like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
