Garnier BB Cream All Day Shine control Review

I am not really a fan of BB creams as they break me out always and whatever BB cream I have used till now don't suit my combination oily skin.  I saw Garnier BB Cream all Day shine Control BB Cream during one of my visit to Ulta.  when I saw something is meant for specially Combination Oily skin plus it says it minimize pores.  I fell for it and I got it.  Usually I see the reviews of products before buying but to be honest this was an impulsive purchase.  Read on to know my experience with this one.


Garnier BB Cream All Day Shine Control

Claims:-
Garnier Skin Renew Miracle Skin Perfector BB Cream for Combination to Oily Skin immediately mattifies, minimizes pores, and conceals imperfections to give skin a naturally smooth, flawless finish. Save time with just one multi-benefit product that combines advanced skincare and immediate skin perfecting coverage in a non-greasy oil-free formula. 

Price:-$12.99 nearly




Shades:- Comes in three shades Light/Medium, Medium/Deep, Deep/Dark

My shade:- I got the lightest shade Light/Medium. Although the shade says its meant for Light to Medium complexion i would say its very light.  It is tiny light for me but works for me.  So I believe people with skin tone below NC 35 would like this shade and anyone above than that should go for Medium/Deep.
Texture:-  It has a very liquid consistency but its creamy enough.  I would suggest everyone not to keep the tube flat as its very liquidy and can leak if not closed properly.  But this does not mean its not blendable, it blends very well.

Smell:-  It has a very weird smell like some sort of alcohol.  I personally don't admire this smell.


How To Use and My Experience:-  When I first used it, I hated it as it was too liquid in consistency and it was looking like mask when I applied it.  Then I thought of retrying it and this time instead of using my fingers I used makeup sponge. And this way it worked beautifully.  I am not a kind of person who wears foundation on daily basis and I always want my makeup to look natural.  So when I used this via sponge my face looked very fresh and natural. This is something that one can use on daily basis without looking like makeup on.  Now talking about the claims that it makes.  firstly it does even out the skin tone, it does control shine though not whole day but for 5-6 hrs depending upon the climate.  It also has SPF in it so you don't need to use the sunscreen separately.  I don't have huge open pores but yes I have some pores around my cheek and nose and it definitely minimize the appearance of pores.  Its really cold here and I always have a problem of dry patches around my mouth and cheeks, this BB cream take cares of that also.

Coverage:-  This gives sheer to medium coverage.  But one can always build up the coverage.  But its definitely not going to hide huge scars.  I don't have major problem of scarring but I have some acne scars on my right  cheek and this definitely makes them less visible.  I always use concealer for that purpose.
