BB Cream Review: Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector

I've been requested by a reader to review a range of BB Creams so here's the first in the series. If you've been paying attention over the last year, BB Creams, or Blemish Balms are the "big thing" of the moment, promising skin perfection by moisturising, covering spots, with many have SPF properties and other "miracle" properties.

The Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector BB cream was the first one to hit Britain. I got some in Thailand when I was there last year and it promised whitening properties, but the British one is very different.

This BB cream promises
  • even tone
  • boosted glow
  • Blurs imperfections
  • smoothes fine lines
  • SPF15 protection
  • 24hr hydration
I got some sachets from a friend so I can't comment on the packaging.

Here's my skin without any makeup. As you can see my skin is pretty clear at the moment so I need a bit of colour, something to even my skin tone and cover my smaller spots.

The prodict is very thick and creamy. It has a lovely fruity smell and spreads really easily

I have the light colour which spreads really easily into the skin and matches my skin colour with enough spreading.

Here's the after photos.

As you can see it gives colour, covered skin tone but you can still see my freckles. It's glowing and quite dewey so I need powder to stop it looking shiney. It's not greasy however so that's good! And it doesn't sit on your face uncomfortably.

Overall - It's a good BB Cream and with some powder it's a great daytime look. I really like how it spreads well and gives a very light coverage.

7.5/10 - Would like it to be a less shiny formula but it's good


  1. I'm sorry but this cream is WAY too dark for you! It's orange and very patchy. I am maybe even paler than you and will not waste money on this product. But: I like that the pictures aren't retouched - your eyeliner is flawless!

  2. i actually bought this yesterday! it suits my skin tone quite well and it does smell nice! i was just looking for a cheap foundation and this works pretty well for me.

  3. It's very dark yes, definitely! But I think it does highlight how it goes on and this is the palest colour.

    And I never re-touch my photos - how can you trust beauty bloggers who change the photos?! x
