GARNIER b-b cream

Today I will review Garnier B-B Cream which is a part of my pre-Christmas haul. I am using this for a week now and I will love to review this.:)

What the product claims:

Is BB cream right for me??

How to apply:

Spread the BB cream like your regular moisturizer. Apply with light circular strokes from the middle of your face outwards on perfectly cleansed skin.

My experience with Garnier B-B Cream:

I am more than satisfied with the product. The packaging is very similar to the Maybelline BB cream and is travel friendly. This BB cream is available only one shade (according to the SA) and it matched my skin tone. After reading instantly perfect skin I knew I was buying this. While buying I was thinking how a B-B cream can do so much? But after applying you can really see the difference. It really gives a healthy glow. Blends so nicely by giving you an even skin tone and moisturizes at the same time. Moreover it has spf24. The smell of the cream is heavenly and I bought the small version without any second thought. I loved this miracle skin perfector and moreover it comes with 24spf and UVA/UVB protection.

β€’ Blends easily
β€’ Travel friendly

β€’ Inexpensive
β€’ Spf24 with UVA/UVB protection

β€’ Nice fragrance

πŸ™‚ even i liked it πŸ˜€ this even doesn’t caused any break outs though i have a sensitive skin πŸ™‚


neha January 1, 2013 at 7:29 pm

just one shade!!!!!


poorva January 1, 2013 at 8:18 pm

even i was quite surprised at only 1 shade ! but i think since this gives such sheer coverage, the shade blends out n adapts to all skin tones! not sure abt the very dusky tones though !


sreya January 1, 2013 at 9:25 pm

poorva is right πŸ™‚ it adapts to all skin tones πŸ™‚ but may be a problem for dusky beauties πŸ™


sreya January 1, 2013 at 9:50 pm

yes this is the only con πŸ™


Nancy January 1, 2013 at 7:35 pm

i am also using this for a week now…. and in my opinion this is the best product from Garnier till now.;)


sreya January 2, 2013 at 2:27 pm

lovely January 1, 2013 at 7:59 pm

Hey Srey..thanks for reviewing this, i have been eyeing on this.. is this easily available? for which store you bought it? online available?


sreya January 1, 2013 at 8:27 pm

i bought it from a small beauty store πŸ™‚ the SA was raving about the product and after swatch i liked the glow it gave πŸ™‚ i took it without a second thought πŸ˜› πŸ™‚ i think they are already available in malls as well as beauty stores πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚


lovely January 2, 2013 at 8:06 pm

Thanks Grl!!!


Kritika January 1, 2013 at 8:24 pm

Hey nice review….
Is it better than maybelline BB cream??


sreya January 1, 2013 at 9:40 pm

i think it is better than maybelline πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚


tarannum ara January 1, 2013 at 8:35 pm

have the mentioned that it is “non-comedogenic” ? I ahve got sensitive and acne-prone skin. BBcreams tempt me but i fear breaking out more!


sreya January 1, 2013 at 9:39 pm

my skin is also sensitive girl.. dont worry πŸ™‚ but “non-comedogenic” is no where mentioned πŸ™‚


annaya November 14, 2013 at 3:03 pm

its mentioned about dermatologically tested,non comedogenic is not mentioned anywhere though…buy it from somewhere where they have the new u store in pacific mall subhash nagar..hope that helps..i love this bb cream *oye balle*


esha January 1, 2013 at 9:21 pm

I have used maybelline BB cream and this one seems to be similar to it?
The sephora store here in Delhi has a variety of bb creams from this korean brand called ‘the face shop’..i’m curious to try those.


sreya January 2, 2013 at 2:16 pm

try them and share your experience πŸ˜€ we would love to know how the BB cream from ‘the face shop’ works πŸ™‚


Anuja January 1, 2013 at 9:41 pm

Will it give coverage to my not so dark acne scars….


sreya January 2, 2013 at 2:18 pm

BB cream is a tinted moisturizer… so we cant expect coverage πŸ™ but u can always try layering it πŸ™‚


esha January 1, 2013 at 10:01 pm

why do all my comments keep going into moderation and never eventually show up? 0_o


sreya January 1, 2013 at 10:36 pm

it showed πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ happy new year esha πŸ™‚


esha January 1, 2013 at 10:56 pm

happy new year to you too πŸ™‚


esha January 1, 2013 at 10:58 pm

(and sreya i was talking about an older comment that’s still in moderation. Heheh! :D)


sreya January 1, 2013 at 11:22 pm

awww πŸ™ neha/jomol will rescue πŸ™‚ πŸ˜€


Natasha (Nats) January 1, 2013 at 10:10 pm

sreya January 1, 2013 at 10:37 pm

Surbhi January 1, 2013 at 10:21 pm

sreya January 1, 2013 at 10:35 pm

πŸ˜› πŸ˜€ he he that was funny πŸ™‚


Leez January 2, 2013 at 12:03 am

The fact that only one shade is available kinda deterred me from buying this but after this review I think its worth a try. Seems just perfect for winters when I don’t need as much sun protection as in summers.


sreya January 2, 2013 at 2:21 pm

this will make u look fresh and glowy πŸ™‚ u can always mix this up with ur favorite sunscreen πŸ™‚ and use this in the summer also πŸ˜€ D


ashna January 2, 2013 at 11:36 am

great yaar! was looking for something tht does all this without costing too much. will surely get one for myself.


sreya January 2, 2013 at 2:14 pm

Manisha January 2, 2013 at 11:44 am

Reha January 2, 2013 at 4:43 pm

Bang on! πŸ˜€ Just yesterday I was about to buy this when I thought.. NO lemme wait for a review on IMBB, and here it is πŸ˜€
Well but I have medium to dusky complexion. You think I should go for this one or Maybelline one 01 shade ?? :-/


sreya January 3, 2013 at 9:48 pm

u can always try at the counter πŸ™‚ and if you are medium i think u can go for it.. my skin tone is also from medium to dusky πŸ™‚


Kinjal January 3, 2013 at 1:06 am

sreya January 3, 2013 at 9:50 pm

Rinni January 3, 2013 at 10:12 pm

I am not very confident with garnier..although i like d idea of bb cream. One question, will it break me out? Or is d maybelline bb cream better?


sreya January 6, 2013 at 2:00 pm

i dont think so πŸ™‚ i have pretty sensitive skin and it caused no break out πŸ™‚ so u can try πŸ™‚ i am neither confident with garnier but this is an exception πŸ˜€


Rati January 3, 2013 at 10:53 pm

it sounds pretty awesome sreya. I made my mom addicted to maybelline bb cream. guess i’d pick this one for her this time. πŸ˜€ thanks for the review. lovely pics . πŸ™‚

Anushri January 12, 2013 at 1:30 pm

I bought this one on reading your review, and I wanna post a big thank you to you! I loved this cream at the first application itself. Amazing coverage, light too. Gives a sortta matte finish to my oily skin. I am definitely going to re-purchase this one without giving it a second thought!


sreya January 12, 2013 at 1:44 pm

thank you so much anushri πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ even i will repurchase a bigger version of it πŸ˜€ this is one of the best product from garnier πŸ˜€ it feels awesome when people find my review helpful πŸ˜€

awww πŸ™


ife May 2, 2013 at 12:37 am

even i didnt.. smells like air freshener… *nonono*


swats February 3, 2013 at 7:31 pm

is this useful for oily skin?


sreya February 21, 2013 at 4:02 pm

yes swats πŸ™‚


sreerupa February 23, 2013 at 10:45 am

can u tell me which one is better.. garnier BB cream or maybelline BB cream? m planning to buy one.


Shami February 23, 2013 at 11:23 am

If you have oily skin – garnier is better, if you want coverage – maybelline is better..
garnier is more blendable than maybelline.. garnier has one shade, maybelline has three shades πŸ™‚
both doesnt break me out.. i prefer garnier more than maybelline..


sreerupa February 23, 2013 at 1:52 pm

thanx. i have normal to dry skin nd yea i need coverage nd sun protectn as i cant use ne sunscreen lotion… so i think maybelline would be bettr… what say ?


Zia June 4, 2013 at 1:13 am

can sum1 plz tel me if ths bb cream clogs pores??
Can I apply it on daily basis??


annaya November 14, 2013 at 2:59 pm

yes zia..its dermatologically tested *announce* wont clog your pores*happy dance* *happy dance* ..and rs 99 is just so affordable *woot* *clap*


Beaulove August 24, 2014 at 7:35 pm

I usually use a sunscreen before applying this (even though it has spf) I’ve recently been using a moisturizer before applying this cream and it always breaks me out! *blush* I have read reviews and there isn’t anywhere mentioned about the skin types it suites. I have combination skin. Does it happen only with me??


sindhu March 10, 2016 at 1:32 pm

Hi Beaulove,

Use this BB cream alone. You can use a moisturizer but don’t use a sunscreen. Layering up too many products is making your skin to break out. Even I have combi skin and this works great for me with a moisturizer
