Garnier BB Cream Review- Light/Medium Shade

I got it in the lightest shade that they offer, because I'm pretty pale. I was afraid it would be too dark, but it melts into the skin well. I find that it does oxidize minimally. I just make sure to use the smallest amount possible and set it with a light shade of powder and that seems to do the trick. I can't say that I've noticed much of a difference in my skin. This does tend to get a little "shiny" during the day, so I would not recommend this to those with very oily skin.

I do find that it covers up the redness in my cheeks quite well and I do not have to use as much concealer. The shade collection is not the best, with Garnier only offering two shades in Light/Medium and Medium/Deep. I also do not care for the smell. I don't mind it in the tube, but the scent lasts all day on my skin. One day I forgot I was wearing it and I kept wondering who around me was wearing such strong perfume when I realized that it was my face!

Hand swatch. I have NW20 skin.

I understand that they are two different types of products and while I don't mind the Garnier BB Cream, I still prefer my Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer. I'm not sure that this product is completely worth the hype, but I do not hate it. I just don't think I'll repurchase it.

Hope you all have a lovely weekend!
