Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector BB Cream

Hello my lovelys, sorry for not posting for a few days. I have had a manic few days despite the unpredictable (although at the moment very predictable- rain.. rain.. rain) English weather. 

On Saturday our little village held the annual Morris dancing festival- locally known as Day of Dance. It is an interesting event where the locals strap bells to their legs and hold sticks, swords and handkerchiefs and perform a folk dance.The rumour goes it was invented in the house in which I now live. I am not sure of the accuracy but the festival is definitely worth a visit. 

Anyway enough about me, back to topic. 

Product InformationGarnier Miracle Skin Perfector BB Cream

Beauty balms were originally developed in Germany in the 50's (it took a long time to come to the UK) to soothe skin and provide coverage. Mainly popular in Asia they have recently become a cult beauty product in the UK. 

Garnier claim the product to give sheer coverage, imperfections become blurred and lines are softened giving skin that is luminous,softer and has a more even tone.    

My Review :)

I have to say I really love this product. It is great time saver in the morning; I think I love my snooze button just a little too much. It primes skin, provides an SPF protection, moisturises, radiates and illuminates all in one.  

I have combination skin, my cheeks tend to be quite dry but my T-Zone fairly oily by the end of the day. I apply this product and then put a pressed powder over my oily areas and find this works perfectly and my skin looks glowing and shine free all day. 

I have the medium colour product. I think it is a little dark for my skin now as I bought it when I was still tanned after travelling but because the coverage isn't too heavy it is still wearable. 

I definitely wouldn't buy this product for its coverage and in the evening when I need a flawless finish I still use my Mac Studio Fix foundation. It gives enough coverage for daytime use when I prefer not to use a heavy foundation.  It provides a greater coverage and more even skin tone than other tinted moisturisers I have used and blurs imperfections such as redness and broken veins. 

I have recently discovered Garnier have bought out an oil free version of the product so will definitely purchase this one next time to hopefully negate the need for the pressed powder on my T-Zone. 

What are your thoughts on this product?

P.S. Pictures to follow- currently on my lunch break :)
